My first post after a lengthy break has to be the hype about the name change at the House of Yves Saint Lauent to Saint Laurent. I do not even know where to start with this. First off let me say that Hedi is perfect for Dior. Ok. Ok. That is off track. back to it..

Since the name change supposedly branded by Hedi Slimane has gotten a lot of backlash, I get it. People love to say Y, S AND END IT WITH L. Y S L. What many do not know is that the name SAINT LAURENT has already been branded by the house in the 70s and early early 80s. This line has already been. So. what is the issue. Hedi is merely giving the name a revival and giving the already branded Saint Laurent a rebirth.

SAINT LAURENT HAS ALREADY BEEN. LEAVE IT ALONE!

My pale pink 50’s Samsonite luggage bows down to you.

Do you remember that ole diddy ” Its beginning to look a lot like christmas”? well. I am changing the words for 2013 resort to ” Its beginning to look a lot like Stepford”.   🙂

If this collection doesn’t embody everything 50 and 60’s  Jet Setter, shoot me fashion dead. It is starting to look like 2013 is going to be a Stepford wife fashion drove. I am not complaining. How could I?!   beyond chic. Peter Jensen Does it again for his resort 2013 collection.

Guo Pei is China’s answer to haute couture. The last time she showed her collection, she sent Carmen Dell’Orefice out in an embroidered, fur-trimmed cape so heavy it took four men to help the legendary model make it down the runway. So expectations were high earlier this week when Guo, whose sculptural, over-the-top creations have drawn admirers including Lady Gaga, mounted her first fashion presentation in more than two years, in Beijing.

In the second of two showings in a soaring industrial space, visitors on Monday entered via a blacked-out exhibition displaying Guo’s 30 startlingly handcrafted takes on traditional Chinese wedding dresses: sunburst collars, acres of silk, and more hand embroidery than you could shake a needle at. According to the punctilious wall texts, one dress took 7,412 hours to make; another incorporated 465,756 pearls. And the show hadn’t even started yet.

Once it did, it was an immaculately constructed dark fairy tale of dragon manes, impossibly high wedges, vertiginous headpieces, and ballet dancers, all under the rubric “Legend of the Dragon,” and all slowly paced, shown one at a time. With arguably her country’s most high-wattage client list, Guo in many ways represents China’s new Gilded Age. But her true message was rather more understated: “My goal was to let more people see beautiful things, especially beautiful handicrafts,” she said. “We want to inspire a greater appreciation for traditional crafts, so that they can continue.”
