BALMAIN: AUTUMN/WINTER 2011

I have posted about my adoring love for everything Balmain before, and it is a love that just keeps on growing. The autumn/winter 2011 collection is amazing guys. With their collections continuously evolving, they have widened the skinny leg jean and added endless draping of scarves and knitwear; completed with a military-style or trench coat. You may not be able to afford their prices — however this collection is mandatory for inspiration in your winter wardrobes. Check it out fellas:

 


 

You want the Selby in your Place.

Posted in BOOKS, global trend, Shop Online!!, we like., wonderfully famous. with tags , , , , , , on January 9, 2011 by streetcredthread

 

One of my best friends bought me a book for christmas. This book turned out to be (one of) my favourite presents. ‘The Selby is in your Place’ was written by Todd Selby, former fashion photographer for the likes of Vogue Paris and New York Times Magazine.

Basically, he has gone around to what he calls ‘interesting people’s homes’ and taken photos of them hanging out.

Rad. He looked around their homes and took pictures of cool stuff they owned — then he also made illustrations of them and some of their favourite possessions. The book contains over forty people (Karl Lagerfeld, Helena Christensen, Faris Badwan, Christian Louboutin) and are located in New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Las Angeles and Sydney.

The images and interviews were initially posted on his website, TheSelby.com, and the book is a collection of his favourite visits. It’s fun to read, and it has stickers. STICKERS. You can’t say no to a book that has stickers. So get your bestfriend to buy you a copy. Or if you don’t have any friends, buy it for yourself. Amazon.com has copies from $23.00!!!

True style starts on the street.

Posted in collegefashionista, global trend, Keep an eye on it, we like. with tags , , , , , on January 7, 2011 by streetcredthread

The most common presumption is that style is born on the runway and re-birthed on the street. I have decided that most often, it is probably the other way around. Trends may be rooted to the runway and creative genius of designers around the world but true style grows out of each individual in different ways that make it impossible to replicate.

I know this because the streets of Melbourne present an entire world of fashion that has not yet been seen on any runway. If you walk around the city for any period of time you see countless numbers of fashion-forward, original and inspired individuals.

Individual style is not something that can be copied, re-made and mass produced to be sold in shops and department stores.

I have come to this realisation in beginning to write for collegefashionista … The showcase of styles on college and university campuses all around the globe say more than any runway show.
