Cirque A La Mode

July 29, 2009

Of all the new trends emerging, there was one that flew under my radar for some time, the fashion style of the circus punks. It seems that every town is laden with a plethora of circus troops, and it has birthed a community all its own. Unlike other trends, it has evolved from just a clique into a lifestyle. A good example is El Circo, a performance troop that always had tight ties with one of my favorite designers, Ernte.

As for the fashion, stripe pants and cute vests have always been my cup of tea, they can create so many outfit possibilities. Unfortunately, bloomers are not. Sorry kids, they must die by the way of flame. There is a reason they went out of style…….a hundred years ago. Let them rest in peace.

No Disappointment In Sight

July 13, 2009

On a semi regular basis, I sing the song of love to my favorite men’s designer, Julius. Once again, with his new line, he has failed to disenchant me. 

Bring on the tactical gothninjas!

Folding Time

July 11, 2009

One of the things I forage for when I’m sifting through the current collections is this: Fabric that folds or drapes like paper. And no ones does it quite like Dior, with their fleet of origami cupcakes.
