Check out this human body ball gown with heavy embroidery and bead detailing! It is pretty awesome. I would totally wear that to a drug company soiree.  If you want to see more of this Chinese designer check out the links below- pretty rad stuff! There’s one photo with a dress/skull cap and another with a short skirted dress- all equally fantastic!

*Sorry I couldn’t repost the other photos, but it wouldn’t let me grab the photo and I’m too lazy to figure it out. But alas, thedoppleganger from Polyvore has it all figured out:

From Polyvore – thedoppleganger:

“This is the original source of the photo:http://www.flickr.com/photos/miyake77/4559647489/ There are more photos from the show on that photostream, and here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/charles_studio/4449645410/From what I know, it’s from March 20th during China Fashion Week, so it’s Fall 2010. It was held at Shih Chien University (http://fashion.usc.edu.tw/c/work/fweek.asp) and the title of the show is “Artificial Beauty”. The designer’s name is listed in Chinese and I’ve translated it to search for them on Google, but no luck for anything in English. Chinese: 陳俐瑾 / 林志純 / 楊淳如 English: Chen Lijin / Lin pure / Yang Chun as. It’s a little confusing because of the language, but it’s all I could find.”

Wish I could post more photos, but definitely check out the links!

British designer Matthew Harding has a wonderful sense of structure in his latest collection. It’s fluffy and  rigid at the same time. It makes me want to snuggle my face into the fabric like it was Mr. Marmar after a kitty spa day. I also really like the column of white silky tubes- although it reminds me of a Charmin toilet paper roll. There’s something galactic about those ensembles that appeals to me. I’ve been on a Star Wars marathon lately, thanks to my 5 year old son and I have a new sense of appreciate for the costumes, especially the later Star Wars movies. Anyway, Matthew Harding is definitely one to watch.

Beijing designer Xiao Li designed this capsule collection inspired by tin robots! Some of may know that I love love love robots and those vintage tin robots are the favorites. I have this tin robot that I attach to my handbag sometimes- it’s even named after me! Hahhaha. I cant’ hate on anything robot related, so I’ll go ahead and give this an A+++++. Even though the fourth photo looks like a busted diaphragm around her neck, I have to appreciate the craftsmanship. This collection reminds of when I would wear an empty hamper when I was kid. Boxy and smelling like sweaty socks. Those shoes are pretty rad if you’re into Bollywood and it’s totally a DIY- lumber jack boots, marbles (or gumballs, if you don’t mind ants), glue gun and you’re good to go.

PS- I did some research and could not find Xiao Li’s official website, but I did find this precious fluffball! Unless, she’s a fluffy panda bear with mad sewing skillz.

2010 AMFI graduate Elise Kim must have been watching this creepy video while designing her  “Blind robots wearing an Ikea lamp shade” collection. Although these pictures make me want to run and hide under the bed, much like that History channel show Ancient Aliens, I still appreciate the intricate design of the tops. Let’s face it, that is some mad origami skillz. So, I wish Elise all the best- she’s a recent graduate so let’s send her off into the real world with an explosive “Dayum! You’ve got skillz!’ confetti.

This was the Faces Exhibition hosted by the Electric Blue Gallery in England. Here is an explanation of the show:

“The group exhibition featured artwork based around the theme of how designer labels has come to manifest itself into our lives and as a culture. Featured artists include Zevs, Eine, Cezar, D*Face, Jasper Goodall and Rafał Zajko.”

I really enjoy art taking a stab at designer labels and popular culture. I think the wooden cross is the best one. I still can’t figure out the Louis Vuitton syringe. Is that an enema? Does that mean a Louis Vuitton bag is symbolic for a colostomy bag?? Am I reading too much into these works of art? Sometimes I get carried away with explanations and then something shiny comes along and I get distracted. That’s why me and Mr. Marmar are best mates- we get easily distracted by shiny things!! Anyway, brilliant exhibit!

Dutch designer Romy Smits is a design consultant, but also designs clothes not seasonally, but as the moment strikes. I can totally understand that. Sometimes I wonder how designers can churn out stuff every season, I mean, don’t they get a creative block sometimes? I sure do. I guess that’s when fashion -intern minions come in handy. Anyway, I really liked Romy’s attention to texture. It’s like a damn 3D movie. Pretty cool- might as well go all the way with this 3D thing, right? Anywho, delusional pregnant ladies aside, I’m really digging the purple alien in the first picture- kinda looks like The Littlest Pet Shop.

I was graciously invited to preview the fantastic jean company, Hudson Jeans, new lines of denim called DIY at The Colony nightclub in LA. I especially love the harem pants in the fourth photo. They were a jean material, but much softer than stiff. The zipper pants are pretty hot, too, although the zipper just an illusion. They don’t really come apart. I thought those would be ideal “all-you-can-eat buffet” pants since you could unzip as you get fatter at the buffet, but I was mistaken. The patchwork denim jeans in the fifth photo is actually made from vintage Hudson jeans, which makes it pretty damn special. I think my favorite is the corset laced jeans. You can’t really tell from the photo, but the jeans were sort of satin-y and nice to the touch. Definitely a cat magnet. That’s good news for cat ladies everywhere (including me!) Anyway, Hudson is also venturing into comfortable and chic tops such as the one above. It’s a wool jacket with an oversized lining that felt like “butta”. It was sooooooo soft. I wanted to curl up in it and purr. These pieces will be available at Barneys NY and Jeffrey. As always, Hudson’s other line is available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and chic boutiques.
