This first taste of the Autumn/Winter 2011 season from the house of Maison Martin Margiela, features soft, texturised leather in the form of tote bags. Margiela effortlessly combines the idea of style and practicality. Margiela’s AW11 tote bags are constructed from premium Italian leather, which helps the bags maintain their structure with added resilience against the elements making it a more suitable alternative to canvas tote bags. Available in both black/brown these double handled Margiela bags are the perfect size for transporting magazines, ipads, important documents, a wallet and keys. Available exclusively via oki-ni.
This exclusive clip taken from new documentary L’Amour Fou translated as “Mad Love” is a glimpse from the film exploring the legendary Designer’s greatest Passions. The Director Pierre Thoretton was introduced to Yves Saint-Laurent through mutual friend Catherine Deneuve, and gained unprecedented access to rare intimate photographs of the designer by Helmut Newton and William Klein. L’Amour Fou’s point of entry is the three-day, 2009 Christies auction of the Creator’s art collection following Saint Laurent’s death. The “sale of the century” comprised works by Manet, Picasso and Matisse, art deco furniture and Roman antiquities, amounting to a staggering $480 million (divided between the Yves Saint Laurent Foundation and AIDS charities). The director adds that the collection is a reflection of the integration of his taste and also “It was the growth of his vision of beauty and aesthetic in the world.”
“L’Amour Fou” opens tomorrow in Paris Theatre, The ultimate entertainment space for New Yorkers the IFC Center and soon in the Uk in select cinemas on May 20th
Junk De luxe has slamming styles, individual pieces, attention to detail. Originality echos through the collection t shirts, polo shirts, shirts with skinny ties, peter pan collars and I really appreciate Junk de Luxe although the brand is not exactly a new kid on the block, this brand is under rated. The only thing that is pissing me off about Junk de is the fact that the online shopping area of the website has been coming soon since April 2009.
I predict that the bow tie will make a comeback this season, Junk de Luxe have a excellent polka dot bow tie, think Christmas day sophistication not night out at Cameos.
