I found his work very interesting and never banal. There was always some attraction to death, his designs were sometimes dehumanized. Who knows, perhaps after flirting with death too often, death attracts you.

So far, Jean Paul Gaultier is the only couture show that's really impressed me. I don't really have anything to say. (I don't know why the photos are so tiny, asshole blogspot, hopefully they enlarge when you click on them or something)

Prada Pre-Fall 2010 via
Thimister Fall 2010 Couture (shown during Spring Couture) via
I don't really see how this falls under haute couture, but it makes one hell of a collection, and a great source of inspiration. The faux blood stains (click the link to see the rest) and the colour palette are brilliant. It isn't hard to see what inspired Mr. Thimister (or maybe once you've read the review it isn't), but not in a way where it turns costumey.

Vogue Paris's take on the looks for spring - from the minds of Carine & Ines and Vinoodh. There were multiple themes; I particularly liked the girls in headscarfs in various locations.

more interested in intellectual pursuits than relationships or family, wrestles with the meaninglessness of existence, likes esoteric things, disorganised, observer, can’t describe feelings easily aloud, detached, likes solitude, rule breaker, skeptical, does not think of self as weird but others do, socially uncomfortable, abrupt, fantasy prone, does not like happy people, appreciates strangeness, private, not punctual, relies on mind more than on others

Luxirare's own creation.. do you think they're as tall (or taller) as the McQueens?

I'm going to delete all of my posts from last year.. I just feel like starting over without deleting this thing. I'll try to post more often, without just doing editorial after editorial.
