It’s been a few weeks into Fashion week all over the world. I thought I was going to just let it slip pass while I contemplate on the meaning of life/poop/get fat procrastinate and pretend I forgot all about it.

Then, I had to come across images of the Gareth Pugh F/W collection. My mind proceeds to get blown, constructing memes in my head like “GARETH PUGH, Y U SO AWESOME?”

This model walks like a samurai.

The collection is a perfect embodiment and demonstration of how the colour black is not boring as long as there is a play on textures and silhouette. The use of semi-shiny leather and matte fabric is simply godly.

Gareth Pugh’s style has always been very architectural and balancing the masculinity of structure with softness of drapes has always been his forte.

Sci-fi priest!! Or knight in civvies!!

If it’s a collection to jump-start me out of my procrastination, it has to be good. Thank you Gareth Pugh for getting me on Fashion Week mode. :D

Yes while blogging about my Brume Hoodie from Complex Geometries, I was wondering to myself when the new Spring/Summer collection would be out. Lo and behold, it was right there.

As any Spring collection would usually have, it’s light colours. Nothing surprisingly ground breaking from Complex Geometries but I like that they’ve remained true to their brand by constantly creating exceptional individual pieces that are unique. I am really into that chiffon outer the male model is wearing.

And to all our readers celebrating Chinese New Year, 新年快乐, 万事如意!

Rain, rain, go away
And stop giving me a bad hair day

It’s the monsoon season again! It is really great weather for layering, but most of the time it just makes me want to stay home in some kind of a sluggish coma. This was what I wore when I finally willed myself to crawl out of home a few days ago. Black and nude is my favourite colour combination, and I just love how this dress flows. When I swish it around, the shape sort of reminds me of something organic like jellyfishes or seaweed. But then again, I may just have been watching too much nat geo.

Rain and light coloured garments really don’t mix, though. By the time I reached home, this dress was already stained with mysterious substance in at least 10 varying shades.

Part I can be found here

Happy 2011 everyone! This marks the first post on the blog for the year…Pretty mundane I must say. But maybe I’ll make a ‘Best of 2011′ post soon. But for now, here’s Part II of the picture spam.

Spitalfields Market. I really love this place. Good food, great stalls and really friendly people. I don’t think this market is nearly as popular as Portobello so there are considerably less tourist traps here. The market is split up into two parts, the antiques section, and the craft section. The antiques section is filled with so many quirky things that I wish I could bring home. This little fellow surprised me :D

The crafts section wasn’t bad as well. There were lots of handmade goodies, from baby boots to avant garde capes. I wish Singapore had something like that where artists can showcase and sell their creations.

Deer feet cutleries. Probably not dishwasher safe. Maybe some time ago, in some household, a family had a cabinet full of taxidermy cutleries.

Paris. I did not spend much time there, and Valentine’s Day in Paris was not nearly as romantic as it sounds. I should really visit Paris again in the spring or summer, it is a rather dreary place in the winter.

Can’t fault the architecture though, I don’t think anything I have seen or read prepared me for that. They are truly breathtaking in person. This is the Louvre from the car.

A little town in south western Germany. While I do love the busy city life, a little respite in a small german village was really welcome. It does feel odd that the nearest mart was a 30 minute drive away though, I’m too used to the city for my own good. I really do agree with German food, though! It is embarrassing to say how much weight I gained on this trip.

I think I don’t take enough pictures when I am overseas. It is a chore to pull out a dslr from your bag every time, and it is not viable to have it out all the time. Unless you want to be a target for muggers and pickpocketers, in which case I recommend flashing neon signs to complete your outfit. That said, if you want to know where to shop in these places, do ask us! Trust me, we spent a great deal of time researching that.

This marks the first of the many runway reviews to come for Spring Summer 2011. Is is after all, hunting fashion week season.

But before I start, I regret to inform you that we will not be reviewing Alexander Wang this season, all because he refused to use black. Yes, he has broken our hearts by doing that. Give us a season to mope about this.

We get down to business with Kimberly Ovitz.

Kimberly Ovitz presents to us this season a collection with very clean lines and geometric blocks. the silhouette is straight with nothing extremely complex. I’ve been lusting for a good shirt-dress since ages ago.

And what’s better than a draped jacket? A long draped jacket of course.

I have to say that I really love the shoes too. I’d probably describe them as slouchy looking hoofs for some reason.
