Givenchy Haute Couture Fall 2010

Haute couture is an extinct skill, but when I saw Givenchy's exquisite haute couture 2010 Fall collection, it reminded me of how divine this school is.
Riccardo Tisci designed these 10 looks inspired by the Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo. In contrast to what may be expected from such a "muse", the inspiration wasn’t drawn from Kahlos colorful, chaotic drawings, but rather from her three great passions: religion, anatomy and sensuality, thus resulting in a very soft collection, in pale colors of white, pale pink, gray and dark brown. The collection was represented to a small audience, first on models and later on mannequins- like an art exhibition, in a French Hotel called d'Avreux.

I looked threw the web to find all the details shoots I could get, I found it in Shaded View on Fashion, and Now Fashion. If you want to see the entire collection, you can find it in and Fashion Gone Rogue.

I can't get enough of this, ain't that just so pretty…?

Full Moon

Sarah moon is one of my all time favorite photographers. Moon, who worked between 1960- 1966 has soft nostalgic esthetics that make her photos look almost like paintings. Sarah is well known for her bleary\smoky signature style that was developed naturally since the photographer is extremely near-sighted. "It was only when I started photography that I became aware of it," Moon told an interviewer. "People would say to me: 'But it's not sharp!', and I didn't understand because that was the way I saw things. I had never worn glasses in my life". Even after she was fitted for glasses, however, Moon continued to follow the stylistic path she began, producing moody, dream-like images that look like a beautiful hallucination. Although until this day she continues to influence many young photographers moon is still relatively known. Along her carrier she shot for most of the big brands and was the first women photographer to ever shoot the famous " Pirelli Calendar ". Aside from her still work moon also shot a short film called " Circus", which was based on the tale "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Andersen.

A Little Shop at the Flowers Market

About a month ago I've been to London , and I just have to tell you about this amazing small shop that my friend Becca introduced me to, called "Jessie and Buddug the shop". This store is located at Columbia Rd, and is open only on Sundays- at the flower market. At this precious shop you can find beautiful hand made jewelry, candles, diaries that are made from old books, and sewing kits made from felt. If you are in the area, you should definitely visit, and if not, you can visit the store blog or go to the web sites of the two creators of the store - Jessie and Buddug

This is a present my friend Becca got me from the shop, that will definitely go with me forever…
