stories about stuff, but mostly fashion

Comme si, Comme sa

Hello-o everyone!

Another year, another season, another fashion week…this time though, besides pretty people dressed pretty and pretty clothes displayed on runways a woman died while a sitting in an actually happening show! She was miss Zelda Kaplan, as everybody says “a fashion icon and a philanthropist“, may she rest in peace. I didn’t know who she was, came out to be a great nice lady that designed her own clothes inspired by traditional fabric that would collected in Africa and other places in which she supported women’s rights causes. Hopefully her charity continue ever after.

But the thing is that as a fashion lover, what a cool way to die! 95 years old, front row in a fashion show, just faint and…that would be it. Straight to heaven…Wow!.

At the beginning of her last show! Rest in peace Miss Zelda!

Moving on…

As I was making my usual research for this post I found an article about how models suffer some inconveniences while performing in the shows. When the s/s 2012 collections come out I fell in love of the Louis Vuitton one, it’s so fresh, delicate, feminine, and the shoes!!! to die for! (well not yet) although when I was looking at them I couldn’t stop thinking that the models’ feet were a little damaged! So I found out that the shoes were glued to the models feet! and not only that but seemed a size too small. I’d say, put some make up on the feet so it’s not as disturbing!

 Why??!! The shoes are so beautiful, but the feet!!!

Such a lovely collection ❤

So. Talking about disturbing. I love fashion, but sometimes I don’t understand the criteria designers follow regarding men’s clothing. Tailoring is fascinating: the craft, materials, shapes, so elegant. But the following pics from f/w 2012 made me think and definitely clooooooooose my eyes.

Ok my dears! I have my next post almost ready, Yey!!!! so you’ll be having some fun with fashion unusual facts and sooner than later pics of mi new collection.

Thanks for stoping by 🙂
