I've loved Kristen for so long...since her grunge eyebrowless days!

SheikChan said...

Bjork! She's so adorable and so out there..I love some of her music. I also love that a character I cosplay from a videogame was blatantly inspired by her... XD She's just too rad~

I look forward to see what you put together for winter outfits! :D

I am a fashion design student and at the moment working on a collection inspired by sea creatures and I love those jellyfish - I think they're called sea nettles. I love how they are so quietly evil... really sinister like watching a scary movie with the sound turned down. Anywayz just trying to convert them and their ocean friends into fashion garments.... hopefully will come up with rad stuff. Thanks for your inspiration/moodboards they're great.

I like that Bjork picture, but I like the picture under it even more. It's really natural (with the setting/colours/textures), but the very strong composition really holds the intensity. And I always like seeing smaller people wearing interesting garments :-))

Love the Bjork pic and the 90s Comme des Garcons.

I'm fairly sure I haven't commented on your blog before, but I had to when I saw Bjork! I'm Ash :)

I'm not sure if you've seen it (you may have, it's been viral in the past) but there's this gorgeous video of her describing how a TV works. I posted it on my blog, thought you would enjoy it :)

one of the most inspiring things i've seen in a long time:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/willemvelthoven/5284193/

might be of interest. there's a large campaign behind it, basically criticizing how even the most liberal socities keep quiet about abortion - it's not illegal, but one shouldnt talk about it either.
the dream bag dress reminded me of this one.

Anna said...

Bjork <3

Sheila said...

that AD is actually using the image of the more wonderful Roman Signer

Kate said...

Love the dream skirt. It's inspiring!

The lighting of the first photo is so interesting. It reminds me of the witch in Narnia. Its kind of an icy, cold look, especially with the hair. Lovely photography.

Hi Tavi,

I just posted an old fashion editorial of Vogue magazine featuring Comme des Garçons dresses. Since I know you're a big fan, you might like it.

Drop by anytime!

you've just put two things i LOVE in life - Björk and Comme des Garçons - in the same editorial.
the 'new' Kristen Mcmenamy is amazing. i adore the way she subverted the idea that grizzly hair is ugly and for elder people.
and i have this Björk's dvd. it's Vessel and documents a concert in early 90's Debut era.

Since when did 1997 become "vintage"?

Does that mean I should be cashing in my old Backstreet Boy-bedecked copies of Teen Bop on eBay?

Can't put my finger on it, but lately all of your posts seem a bit spooky...maybe it's because you're starting to be a teenager and have all kind of swisted thoughts..don't know...
