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!

FACT IS IN THE BOOKS.

I for one love the look. And I also know that If I were to wear one, It would just look like a mumu- So, I will have to appreciate from afar. Ann Demeulemeester has taken menswear to a whole new height with Her Fall 2012 menswear line. I personally love it and I do know that you have to be totally secure with your masculinity to pull it off, that, and be completely fashion forward or fashion involved for it to make sense to the masses that will notice.  I do know this- I must have the short white boots! Ugh. Dying for them.

Take a peep. Are you brave enough?

Walter Van Beirendonck just showed and proved to me that suits can be a work of art. LOVING and LIVING for these!!

Ok. So. I have never been one to Coo over a mans suit. I find them restricting and most of the time without style due to the normal occasion in which you would need to wear one- and most of the time you give off flair with added accessories and pops of color. i;e socks, ties, bowties. etc.

In  Walter Van Beirendoncks collections for the Fall 2012 menswear looks. He proved to me that not only does one have to fear the suit. But, they can also be art pieces, literally. If you can imagine one dying to get a painted dress by Zhandra Rhodes circa 1970-80’s. I am sure you can imagine the up and coming want for these suits in lets say 30 years from now, hell, even 5 years from now..

PURE GENIUS. I mean he did graduate from Antwerp with 2 of my Top Favorite designers- Dries Van n0ten and Ann Demeulemeester after all..

UGH, GOD. I AM DYING FOR MARC JACOBS FRESH LOOK FOR LOUIS VUITTON SPRING RTW 2012

Talk about gorgeous. WOW. wow.  The Spring 2012 RTW show  for Louis Vuitton had me swooning. This line is probably my favorite of all the L.V looks for any show, literally.  Most of readers and followers from BaggagedHeart, my first blog of many years, until I forgot my password and had to close it.  Know that I love the 50’s nerd Girl look. It is just my favorite of all. Sorry, back on track.

Marc Jacobs seemed to have an innovative change of mind and take the typical crisp and chic look that is the house of L.V normal image. Fine with me, that is for sure.  He was able to create a winter, whimsical, old granny turned girly, doily roller coaster that had  me screaming for me. Damn. If only I were a girl. I would purchase every piece. The color palette of sorbet oranges, mints and a daffodil yellow and touch it off with a blast of easter egg blue?!  WOW. Truly supreme in every way.

Just when I started to get bored of  Mr. Marc Jacobs.  I’ll take my monogram hat off to you. Truly. Living for this collection.

Oh. Take notice.   That white clear monogram ALMA bag or those Rubber Cage easter egg totes??!!!!     off the shelves they will fly.  PERFECTION. These will be the bag Must haves of the season. I predict it.

THE HOUSE OF DIOR SUMONS RAF SIMONS TO THE MEGA FASHION HOUSE…

Posted in ART, CELEBRITY, EVENT, FASHION, HAIR, ICON, PHOTO, STAR, STYLE, STYLIST with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2011 by jovan townsend

JOHN GALLIANO WAS DIOR. HE TRANSFORMED THE DIOR FASHION HOUSE TO WHAT IT BECAME TODAY. THIS IS FACT. WE ALL KNOW THE STORY OF MR. GALLIANO, SO I WILL NOT GET INTO THAT.

WHAT I WILL GET INTO THOUGH. IS THE HOUSES DIRECT ATTENTION ON RAF SIMONS. COULD RAF SIMONS DO DIOR JUSTICE? COULD RAF SIMONS HOLD ONTO THE MARKETS ATTENTION AS GALLIANO? WHO’S TO SAY. BUT, THAT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING. THEY ARE COURTING RAF AS A BOY DOES A GIRL IN MIDDLE SCHOOL. OR BOY DOES A BOY OR GIRL FOR GIRL FOR THAT MATTER.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

DOES RAF HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO UPHOLD SUCH A HUGE FASHION HOUSE LIKE DIOR? OR IS HE BETTER DESIGNING FOR EASTPAK OR HIS CURRENT STINT WITH JIL SANDER??

P.S   I LOVE JIL SANDER.

 

YA. DIDN’T THINK SO.     BRING ON HUSSEIN CHALAYAN OR GARETH PUGH!!
