HAL said...

I love that illustration, so cool. The Lanvin is pretty stunning. I might need those shoes, I love the chain in the middle.

I always think "N is for Neville who died of ennui."
That's how I learned what ennui was.

the gorey illustration is top, so beautiful

zoomslow said...

The Edward Gorey illustration is really nice - but I'm sure you could do better!

Alyssa said...

Oh boy Oh boy, why is that able to wear that scarf-ish rug thing and look stellar? Why? Why? !

Also, that illustration includes a fainting couch, which every woman wearing a rug needs. Why? Just in case.

You never know when... someone might...

walk all over her.

[my sincerest apologies for the awful, awful joke.]

Amazing :)

chappacua said...

Hi! i see that your mother is Norwegian! what do you think of Norwegian design? designers like Fam Irvoll, Kjersti Vatle, leila hafzi and such?

miyuki yoshimura said...

love edward gorey! thx

Moonlight said...

i really like that illustration.

I miss the good old-fashioned kind of illustration - ones not done with computer, or a photoshop.

Which also makes me think about animation as well. The 3D stuff is great, but I miss the simple 2D animation - like Tom and Jerry. I was in love with Tom and Jerry as a kid. The music, slapstick humor, the expressions. So fun to watch.

hmm...this particular piece from Lanvin's collection totally reminds me of an oversized poncho, just a tad. From far away, looks a lot like the rug in my kitchen...

From another perspective, definitely has this exotic feel about it. Probably thanks to the jewellery. Otherwise, ruffle out the model's hair, and she could pass for a hobo. [ok. i'm being a tad harsh. sorry. maybe i'm in a bad mood today. :(]

love the draping though. who knows, maybe it'll grow on me like bad romance did. :)

sd said...

for such seemingly drab colors, the piece looks so light and airy, and beautiful

I suddenly heard Julie Andrews Joddeling from a mountain somewhere when I read this. Shame the pic doesn't have more Lederhosen involved. Well, I say 'shame' ...

DUDE,
Lanvin Spring 2010.
that is a half of a dress.
so random and inventive.
LOVE.

Chloë said...

Lanvin always nails it IMO. Elbaz deserves a cookie and a clap on the shoulder

Emily said...

TAVI, YOU WERE IN MY DREAM LAST NIGHT.

You were friends with my grandparents (lol) and they invited you over so that I could have someone to hang out with. And we talked about fashion and went on these wooden swings. It was weird, but awesome.

Ace. Fucking Ace.

Gigi said...

I don't know... I like the shoes and the hair but the texture of the dress looks too heavy. I understand that the whole collection is a play on textures, but I still think it would be better in a lighter fabric. I liked the collection on the whole though, especially the first several sculptural, ruffled dresses.

Comic_Cat said...

I like those shoesies... :D

Hope you get to the Gorey Museum in Yarmouthport, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. You would love his huge tribal jewelry collection and his floor length fur coat on display. He was a very cool guy.

It becomes thought provoking when someone disagrees with you. And it's nice when someone agrees with you, but when another champions your cause and promotes your thoughts, well that is purely splendid! Go checkout pursuitoflifestyle.blogspot.com/ by Jennifer Spencer
