Burger Sweatshirt

1 Oct

Mr Gugu & Miss Go sell a range of incredible printed sweatshirts. A spin off shop from their massively random Sexy Sweaters blog that combines sweatshirts, great imagery & photoshop to make addictive browsing. 45 Euro these novelty sweatshirts are so random, and utterly brilliant, I have ordered the burger one to replace December’s traditional Christmas jumper. I secretly want the weed one as well despite the fact it is veering perilously close to bad taste and has ‘please stop and search me’ written all over it.









Strange & offbeat

17 Nov

Strange & offbeat, I am all over the work of New York photographer Ted Sabarese like a rash. He plays with materials to create costumes and other costumes of the most unusual on the themes of food, office or high sewing.

Bring it on these are fucking awesome (source):

Heavy Metal Corsets

6 Oct

I have previously posted about their cake range of corsets but these Mayan Hansen ‘Heavy Metal’ range of corsets and dresses feature the likes of ‘Kiss’, ‘Slayer’, ‘Misfits’, ‘Iron Maiden’ and ‘Metallica’ – and therefore ROCK, literally!

I know this is not massively innovative but I think these are not tacky (unlike those sold for a million pounds on clothing stands at Sonisphere) – which is new for metal band inspired corsetry to me anyway. Amazing stuff I want to get my hands on (in kooky for EYHO reasons, not I will ever wear this in normal circumstances way).

Cake corsets

29 Jul

Yummmmmmy this is a range of corsets inspired by cupcakes and candy – and best of all designer Maya Hansen has called the range “Cake corsets” – think I will even take one of these over the skeleton shoes. At least that’s my outfit sorted for The Mad Artists Tea Party anyway!

Circus Child

11 Jul

Circus Child is a new concept from Coco de Mer – which has the potential to create the sexiest circus in the whole world…

It is a limited edition, made to measure, capsule collection of Circus inspired pieces designed to raise money for Circus Child, a not for profit organization that supports and promotes circus groups around the world that work towards social change. The clothes are amazing and very very expensive. Whilst they are made to measure I don’t think I could bring myself to buy a sequined leotard with feather bustle for £750, or a hat for £650. But of course if someone bought one for me ;-)…

Procelin Lacoste

11 Jul

A very Sunday afternoon tea type post I discovered over at Dinosaurs & Robots, and a great idea from Lacoste (it pains me to write that).

They invited Chinese porcelain artist Li Xiaofeng to create two different polos for their Holiday 2010 Collector’s Series. The first is a printed polo, created from photographs of blue and white porcelain shards with lotus and children designs from the Kangxi Period (1662 – 1772 AD) of the Qing Dynasty. The printed polo is limited to 20,000 pieces for both men and women and comes packaged in a silk pouch stamped with a red seal logo. The second, is an actual porcelain polo inspired by the early Ming Dynasty (1368 -1644 AD). The most expensive and most exclusive Lacoste polo to date, the piece took Xiaofeng three full months to paint, fire, fragment, shape, polish, and finally link together. The porcelain shirts are currently on display in France at the Musée des Arts et Métiers and will then head to Bejing in the Fall at Li Xiaofeng’s first one-man at the Red Gate Gallery.

Hipster Fashion Circle

28 Jun

Tee hee this is spot on – you see all areas of the circle in Shoreditch every day as “it’s totally fucking Mexico Dollsnatch”(Flavorwire via Notcot).

That said have no idea where my controversial new DM’s would fit?!
