If there is one era I wish I lived in then that would definitely be the roaring twenties. No joke, Les Annees Folles would be where I want to be. Flapper dresses, feather head pieces, the bobbed hair cuts, and of course every little detail to dance Charleston. Well sad enough am an eighties but this summer we might be able to live and relive all this with The Great Gatsby and Miuccia Prada’s influence in the movie by designing the costumes.

When was the last time you went crazy? Like really crazy? New Years? Well I did go crazy on New Years but didn’t experiment with my craziness that much. 
When I really went crazy was last year when Missoni launched its collection for Target. There I was standing on the couch, credit card in hand, screaming at the Target website, phone in other hand with my friend abroad deciding where the connection was better and who could secure the goods faster.
I hope the experience will not be the same this year! Get ready ladies, Target is launching its collaboration collection with Prabal Gurung on February 10.
Yes Prabal himself.. How do I feel about it? I might as well leave the space blank! Am blank. Good blank. Click to view more items from the collection.

What would it look like if your grandfather modeled for you? Yes if your grandpa/ grandfather/ granny man/ granddad/ .. modeled your clothes. Well no need for your imagination to go running around. Chinese Liu Xiaping modeled his granddaughter’s clothes.. for fun only. Yes. The pictures are for a Chinese online store called Yuerkou, that was started by five Chinese females. His granddaughter was one of them. They got this brilliant idea (not sure if it is actually) when they have received some of the merchandise and he started trying it on! Wicked!! or not?? Well it’s not so bad, we need to give grandpa some credit for being so fit and in shape at this age.

You know I LOVE the holidays. The holiday season. Christmas. This post brought tears to my eyes. Goosebumps to my body. Shivers to my spine. The good way. You feel it’s Christmas. So for the holiday season this year Barneys has themed up with Disney under the theme “Electric Holiday” to design its windows giving Minnie Mouse a fashion adventure with fashion’s best. It is also happening in Paris. (If you don’t understand why read yesterday’s post and this). Do you have a guess of who the best is? I have pictures, some of them are amazing, some are hilllarious, and some I just wish were the real people in real life; DISNEYFIED!… You need to keep on scrolling lower. If you still have no clue about what I am talking about, take a peak at this video..
So whose is your favorite?
I like Bryan Boy, Anna dello Russo, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Naomi, SJP, ….You know what forget what i just said… I LOVE THEM ALL! I wish I get to be DisneyFied !! Merry Christmas everyone!

Louis Vuitton reinterprets its Art of Travel campaign with the new “L’Invitation au Voyage” featuring Arizona Muse. She could not be any more stunning (not that we imagined anyone ugly starring for Louis Vuitton’s new campaign) – or perhaps this is a new marketing idea. There we go again one more campaign shot in the streets of Paris – Paghi for some, in case you were wondering what the other one was, then click here. Continue reading

Rami Kadi’s one of our favorite young Lebanese designers. So when I saw his latest couture collection, I absolutely fell in love. The dress above is one of my favorite pieces from the collection: simple yet classy with a statement. 
 
The collection is untitled “Au Bal des Orchidées Noires”; a very interesting name. According to Kadi, the inspiration behind the 56 piece collection is couture royalty, baroque fairy tales, seduction and mystery.
 
I’m loving the delicate mix of lace, velvet and embroideries as well as the colors perfect for this season’s trend (cobalt blue, oxblood, grey, off white..)
 
Check out more of my favorite dresses below…
