Here is a special Spring 2011 collection by  Maison Martin Margiela called  ‘Artisanal’. Each piece took hours of work and was handcrafted with Liberty prints, ribbons, flower garlands, colored plastic bags and leather to name a few. Usually I bust on Maison Martin Margiela, but today I feel generous. The artistic factor involved with this collection is like POW! I give it to anybody that can make couture from random stuff. My fave is the ribbon dress in the 6th photo. I do have to say the cellophane dress is a little ridiculous, but isn’t that what experimental fashion is about?  I may have changed my mind about Margiela!

If your doll’s shoes have gone missing in the past few months, look no further, the doll foot fetish lurking in  jewelry designer Tom Binns must have swiped them to make this immaculate piece of jewelry! Seriously, that’s a lot of barefoot Barbies. Good thing Barbie can’t get pregnant… or CAN she? Anywho, Moss Online offers this for sale but the price is available upon request. Usually, they say ‘price available upon request’ when they know that you’re gonna shoot them a ‘b*tch please ‘ side-eye  after finding out the price. I say just go to your neighborhood playground and start gathering lost doll shoes, then string it all together and throw it around your neck. Voila! And if it kid cries for her doll’s shoe, tell her that Cinderella story, but stop before the part where she gets the shoe back…. yeah, that’s the ticket.

LunaBlocks has taken a childhood delight and made it into an interior decorator’s nightmare! Seriously, every interior decorator I meet wants to transform every place into a Z Gallerie showroom. Ugh. The best part of these blocks is that you can make your own combinations to make the furniture of your childhood dreams! Each brick is about $20, so it’s not that cheap, but still well worth it if you have a passion for Legos. I like the tables the best and I would make all the bricks pink and black for a Barbie boudoir effect!

I swear that’s the same plastic covered lace I use as placemats. In any case, this collection by Jessica Madden is really awesome! I mean the ruffles, the lace, the shiny plastic! It’s like I’m in Elizabethan heaven! Madden has just graduated The University of Westminster and this was her senior fashion show. She is definitely one to watch as she has major talent. I can spot talent a mile away, by the way. Take for instance my other cat, Ms. Coco, who can bitch slap Mr. Marmar and still eat snacks simultaneously. That is unprecedented talent.

The talented Ms. Coco

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Yankee readers! Make sure you eat ’till you puke, zing your family all day and sleep yourself into a coma! That’s what today is all about!

Vivienne Westwood and Melissa teamed up again to make adorable shoes for little girls. This time they made a mini-me version of the adult line of women’s shoes they already put out the past few years. My favorite (which I plan on getting for a future mini-me!) pair are blue with a red heart shoes. We would make a fine pair sporting similar shoes. I am delighted, though, that they didn’t add a heel for a prostitot look. I’m so not down with that. Seriously, if you don’t know what to do with the power of heels, you should not wear them. Heels are a fascinating breed of shoes- a weapon, a fashion statement and most of all a weapon. I prefer them to a glock. Anyway, I’m putting in an order for a future mini-me. If I end up with another boy, I think I’m still gonna dress him like a girl.

British designer Robert Bradford made these sculptures out of recycled pieces of toys, plastic junk, buttons, the bread tag that know one knows what to do with, clips and other stuff. I think it’s pretty cool, however, he should include cats in his collection, in my opinion. This is giving me ideas for all the small, tiny toys that my son accumulates from those Kinder Surprise eggs and vending machines. I mean, he has so many that I just dump it into a large cardboard box. Sometimes I see the cats rolling around in it, licking their butt. That can’t be good. One day, I say, that box full of plastic crap will morph into a sculpture for my son’s room.  Thanks, Rob!

British designer, Amy Thompson, has designed a collection with very thin plastic in pretty pastel colors. These are pretty wearable considering they are very flexible, but not very breathable. I guess you could wear them for very short periods of time. My favorite are the purple pants. They look so robotic and reminds me the this Thierry Mugler outfit.  I would wear these during gardening. Martha Stewart should buy the rights to this. I can imagine her wearing these while planting her petunias.  She would say ‘It’s a Good Thing’  and then post a template to make these on her site. Only no one would make them because it would take 1,000 hours and a degree in engineering to make them . It would take Martha an afternoon to make these. Maybe about 20 plastic folders and some brass fasteners will do the trick. I would leave it to Amy, though.
