architecture x fashion, again

well, as an architecuture student and fashion lover
i m always excited when seeing them crossing over

there are quite a number of crossover these recently years
the most frequent one must be Zaha Hadid, for melissa, puma and the unforgettable Chanel Mobile Art thing
another one i rmb is Franky Gehry for Tiffany

but these things always are so superficial
i mean
they only inject their personal architecture style into the fashion items
it is only about the FORM
and on some runway items
they call them architectural only becoz the dresses are of volume

but the following one is different
thou it is not designed by an architect
but the artist is inspired by Santiago Calatrava, one of the most influential architect for designing bridges.
the shoes are supported by structure likes bridge's
they are so elegant but strong
love them so much

Tea Petrovic inspired by Santiago Calatrava

i think you should know the architect's work too :D

goth is forever
goth is glamourous

Black Box Recorder
this band is awesome
it's a pity that it has dismissed
i like the goth and creepiness
tho it may depresses you
but sometimes you need to be down 
before you can get the energy to work again

why you choose to leave us? McQueen...

McQueen was found dead of committing suicide..
i screamed
i nearly cried.....

i cannot write anything to express my sadness...
RIP the talented McQ

rock Sir Lagerfeld!

I always want to buy a rock tee
coz you style up immediately when you are in its rock enclosure
well, but i havent got one
if there is sth like these
i would definitely buy it!
but too sad that they are NOT FOR SALE
they are some art pieces by the art direction team
Sandberg & Timonen
hope there will be copy cat(!) very soon, ha!

really like the Margiela one..... sooo rock!

whats the matter with Marc?

i m 200% sure this is not a good design
i know it is a very cool idea to mix between lux and trash
but it just doesnt work out... right?

new noise maker

you have to make noise if you are new
new brand, new magazine, new artist, etc.
once you become household name
you are good no matter what you do!

so LOVE from the UK continues her noise making in her 3rd issue
convincing 8 supermodel to post for the cover naked!
wow wow
their figures are gorgeous!!

Lara Stone, the best one!

Kate Moss

Naomi Campbell

Natalia Vodianova
i can't believe she is a mother of three.....

Kristen McMenamy

Jeneil Williams

Daria Werbowy

Amber Valletta

“For this issue of LOVE, we took eight women who are generally acknowledged as the most beautiful in the world, got them to show off their bodies – widely regarded as the most perfect in the world – and photographed them all in exactly the same position for the cover,” Brand said.

“We did this to show how much they differed physically from one another, which is why we also printed their measurements. The point is that ‘perfection’ is not fixed, timeless or transcendent. It varies, as the measurements of our cover girls show.”

i cannot agree that much..
the differences are so wee tiny little
the concept of perfect and beauty, esp in fashion is so fixed
it is hard to accept someone who is not skinny on the runway
no matter how many of them are sent on to the walk

i prefer these two images from the magazine 
the debut
