bellum LV1 1  Bellum Classics

If There is one  Fashion Pet Peeve I have is to see a well dressed man or woman with cheap,no character timepieceson their wrist.It’sone thing to do it for  the Irony of style …But to rock a thousand dollar suit with nondescript sports watch is just lame….  I confess an  affinity for Fine Timepieces,In apparel  trends can take over quality but for watches I admit that I can be a downright Snob

 Bellum Classics, (That I discovered at Pitch Control) is a collection of vintage Luxury watches that are revamped is a dream come true..Check out the details

When High Fashion Takes A Cue From Mr. T

MR T When High Fashion Takes A Cue From Mr. T

The associations in my mind can be all over the place. In many ways it’s what happens when you watch too much Style with Elsa Clench and the A team!  I was always fascinated by MR.T and his ability to wear sooo much gold. While I have been known to pile on the jewels…Little did I know that Givenchy was going to give me the ability to rock one piece and create the same effect.

The Givenchy Fall 08 collections is by far a favorite. The lines are clean  and the detailing is amazing. Blouses and leather pants, sharp, are just some of the many amazing highlights. Kudos to Mr. Tisci!!!

HighSnobettiest: SuperFertile Accessories!!!

05 May 2008, 16.11 | Posted in Accessories, Art | No comments »

The item of the day arrived early today. Once again, one of our amazing readers hipped me up to a line that I definitely should have known about, but pathetically did not. This tip comes from Em, who let me us know that M.I.A. has a sister, Kari Arulpragasam, who does a jewelry line called Super Fertile.

Let me not lie and admit that when I first read about the line, I figured it would likely be a bust. After all, how much creativity can any one family claim?? But as soon as I saw the images, I was stunned and amazed. Kari is as talented at making jewelry as her sister is at making music.

^^I think that’s Sudan on the left and Iraq on the right. I love how she doesn’t disappear women who wear veils. They are right there in the mix, representing.

More images, including earrings on the other side…

Now the other news Em imparted is that M.I.A.has started her own clothing line. Love the woman, but I don’t know about that move. Besides the rag trade being a total grind, when musicians and actresses launch brands, the outcome is akin to athletes who try to be rappers….aka not positive!

Welcome back to another week!

Transformer Bag @ Karmaloop

04 May 2008, 19.18 | Posted in Accessories, Stores | No comments »

While doing some browsing on Karmaloop the other day, this Insight Transformer bag caught my eye. Maybe it’s ’cause I’m just back from a trip to Guatamala and something about the pattern had me remembering the trip or maybe I appreciate its multi-functionalality, whatever the reason, I just like it.

Magdalena Hafner: Charming Charm Bracelet

29 April 2008, 16.47 | Posted in Accessories | No comments »

A while ago I was interviewing a bunch of women for this story on trends and when I asked one of them what her fashion pet peeve was, she told me preassembled charm bracelets. She was like, “How challenged are you if you can’t find your own charms?? I mean, isn’t that the point in the first place???”

All that being said, I STILL like this charm bracelet by Magdalena Hafner if for no other reason that the sports theme is kinda cute, and it is for guys after all and they need help with this kinda stuff.

^^Correction: I THINK it’s designed for men. The website is all in German so in truth I’m just guessing. Anyway, in a way, I think this would look cuter on a chick. If you can’t see, that charm in the middle is a pair of kicks!

Late-breaking update: I have been informed by David of HighSnobiety that this is definitely, definitely designed for women and that hell would freeze over before he or any other man he knows would ever wear it.

Mulberry Bag: Fall 2008

Okay people, in between the celebrity fixations today, let me squish in a little fashion. Here’s a bag from Mulberry, a lux English label, I spotted on Style.com today. Love the color, the shine and the shape. This is a slick bag! And that’s the label’s theme in general: classic but with an edge.
