murakami1 Monogram Multicolore Insolite Wallet by Murakami‏

I would be lying if I said I never had interest in the oh so saturated Murakami for LV collection. Nonetheless,  the plethora of copies we saw especially in NYC , the overall trendiness and overexposure , had us shaking our heads like nah, can’t go there. We were just sent the images of The Monogram Multicolore Murakami wallets and I have to say in all honesty that hidden in the privacy of my handbag this little number might actually get me to wanna go there. Check out another color on the next page.

The 50th anniversary of Barbie generated lots of buzz, here’s a look the Barbie World  launch at DSM last week:
“Henry Holland was responsible for curating the space that begins with a gigantic sculpture of Barbie applying lipstick by Martin Smeaton from the Andy Hillman Studio, which plays off against the comparatively diminutive sized Barbie and Ken dolls designed by Roksanda Ilincic, Danielle Scutt and Gareth Pugh. All three dolls were dressed in their respective designer’s signature looks including a purple satin big shouldered jacket by Ilincic, dark denim outfit by Scutt and black PVC jacket by Pugh. All dolls will be available in limited runs of 50…” Read the entire feature via Dazed.

reebok npc slim mid rolland berry 1 Rolland Berry x Reebok Straptastik  Floral

Usually flowers and bright colors on sneakers would be very typical in my mind,  and just overly girly . But, the floral version of the “Straptastik” which I  am a proud owner just has the right combination of detail. embroidery on canvas, printed half  sole and a bright metallic purple toe-box making them very rockable,  for me tough with all black gear.

Nike AF1 Maharam Limited Edition

afi480 Nike AF1 Maharam Limited Edition

 

Maharam’s unique interpretation of the AF1 introduces a silhouette constructed of Layers, a textile created by the Maharam Design Studio in collaboration with Jongerius. Layers, produced in 100% wool felt, uses sophisticated embroidery equipment played against artisanal hand-cutting to create patterning, resulting in an “industrial craft” hybrid. This already complex textile was further engineered to meet the specific needs of the AF1. The result represents a multi-disciplinary undertaking, bridging disparate aspects of industrial design including sports technology, textile design and the conceptual avant-garde. Layers is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.” Via Moss

Matthew Williamson Fall '09 Runway via Style

Matthew Williamson Fall '09 Runway via Style

Camilla Skovegaard , born in Denmark  was brought  to Dubai by a french couture house to design for the Gulf’s Sheiks and their wives ( can you imagine, the glamour?)  Later on she also designed for the late president H. H. Sheik Zayed Al Nahyan . She launched her collection in 2006 where she designs the shoes and oversees production from drawing board to sample approvals in one of the  best factories in north  Italy.

 Camilla Skovegaard, get my kudos  for not only being one of the very few women shoe designers, but also for being able to channel my shoe passions once more in her footwear designs for Matthew Williamson’s Autumn/Winter ‘09 collection. Zebra print stilettos with neon pink soles, need I say more.

A closer look at my fave  Camilla Skovegaard’s designs for Spring/Summer 2009  on the next page.
