British designer James Hock‘s latest collection is consists of only the colors red and black and a strong harlequin theme. Basically, it’s like the circus in an Asian restaurant. Lucky for James, I like the circus and I like Asian restaurants. The only thing I’m unsure of is the half shorts/half pants look. About 95% of the times that I wear pants, it means that I was too lazy to shave my legs. So those pants would just confuse me- to shave or not to shave?

Check out James’ older collection that belongs on Queen Latifah back in her U.N.I.T.Y days. I really like the boxy look, especially the ‘b*tch, get off my sidewalk’ shoulders. The last photo is something I’d wear to a cat show. Mr. Marmar could jump on my shoulder and use my hat as a scratching post. I love it all!

British artist James Joyce’s art is so colorful and playful on the surface but if you look at each piece, you will find a more serious note. Case in point, the red finger on a trigger,  the collapsed clown, or the pretty lady with no face. I really love his work and appreciate that he isn’t afraid of using bold colors. The photo above is an art gallery with his works on display. Joyce’s work can be found everywhere from the cover of  Wallpaper magazine to Swiss Army knives. Check out his site for all his work.

Here is Part 2 of my favorites from UK’s Graduate Fashion Week 2010. The first photo reminds me Victor & Rolf, which I adore. The third and fourth photos look like straight up aliens. And the last four photos are wonderfully fun and childish, which I find appealing AND there are lots of Bows- yay! Love the robot tights and Pinocchio skirt, although her sweater looks like a fungus of some sort. I’d wear it.

Here are my favorite looks from UK’s Graduate Fashion Week 2010. I always like to see what the student graduates come up with because they don’t have financiers up their ass asking them if their clothes will sell. This freedom always guarantees a good ‘WTF?’ look. I mean, fashion is supposed to be fun and creative, once money comes into play, then things start looking like the average mall store. Anywho, as you can see, children’s themes appeal to me. Dumbo, clowns, woodland creatures, pom poms… love it. And , I’m glad to see a designer paying attention to the chirruns. Adorable!

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.

British newcomer, Gemma Slack, has designed  a sexy collection perfect for combat. With chest plates and metal chain linked vests, this collection reflects on bondage and medieval themes without teetering on the side of cheezy goth store Hot Topic. That chain vest looks like something Houdini would wear. The back bone dress is my favorite! It looks scorpion-ish! Like early Alexander McQueen, Slack is one to watch and this is only the beginning! Check out her complete collection at her site here

PS – A little trivia- Slack hails from Sheffield, UK- the same city that gave us The Human League! Yay! (I love that bouncing red ball)
