Are you scandalized?

The curtain opens and what we see is a pair of nude legs, with two lowered panties while sitting in a public toilet.
No, this is not a sexual movie or the publicity of a very hot toy. The maker of this advertisement is a fashion brand. Alexander Wang thought that doing a different kind of publicity for the brand would help. 
I know some people who find it unglamorous while others are having fun with it and they think its natural. Personally talking, I feel fashion is always been too much correct, restricting all its content to the expected pose and set. And if some people feels scandalized it's just a sign that we are breaking down some barriers.
The barriers that don't let to express other feelings.
Can be two girls shitting in a public toilet, to sniffe cocaine in a crazy night, interracial love, sexual suggestions... It doesn't matter what because some decades ago to make an ad like that was a folly.

My question is, are we really scandalized? Maybe we shouldn't. There's nothing we haven't seen before (although not in a public context). These can be embarassing pictures (I don't think they really are) in an attempt to normalize the situation.

Other brands that have published scandalous advertisements are Tom Ford, Sisley, Gucci, Calvin Klein... All of them, some like Tom Ford more than other, discovered that it's an effective way to generate more fame and discussion. Whether we agree or not, that's a fact.

Cute for less

The summer arrived days ago and you may have the feeling you got nothing to put on from your wardrobe. You and I know this is not true!

But thanks god there are some brands that solve it without breaking your poket. SPRINGFIELD and ASOS, those Top brands offer quality solutions when you need casual looks and a young style. 

I have taken a look at this season clothes and I already got some possible casual outfits, very cheap! T-shirts, shorts and hats... multiples combinations.

 These of below are the ones I would choose to renew my closet this summer. Take a look!!

Animated comics made in PRADA


What a better idea than promotioning a fragance with animated pop comics more like an Andy Warhol or Roy Lichtenstein drawing.

The character in these comics? Léa Seydoux.
The author's name iFrancois Berthoud, a talented quite known illustrator.



Joining comics, art and celebrities to sell a fragance (or fashion too) was not very usual, but I think the result isn't that bad. I would absolutely buy them (the comics) as an art piece.

Viktor & Rolf. Art with a capital A.

Yeap. Mixing fashion and music is fantastic, specially when the music is live. 
But what would you think if in adition there is dance in the runway? Imagine: Fashion, music, and yes, dance.
This is what Viktor & Rolf though for this spring summer couture 2014 collection, 
a different fashion show, maybe a spectacle, where the models were ballet dancers of the Dutch National Ballet
Latex textures, pointe shoes, nude colours, maillots... The fashion show starts when the classical music plays.



The runway design was the one of a ballet classroom, with mirrors and wooden benches.

Photo of the final moment with all the models. (source: Buro247)

Here I give you a short video of the show. Such a sensitive and delicade one.

She's the man. Barbara Bui pre-fall 2014

The Tomboy look.The Boyish. 
Although it may seem artificial in a woman, I consider that this is one of the most feminine outfits. For this and other reasons the tomboy look is my favourite one.

A tomboy suit well combined is surely sexier than any dress which has no soul. The black is sexy, and the straight pants and shirt are also.

Here you have the Barbara Bui pre-fall 2014 collection. 
This one is a clean, boyish, simple but very pretty:

Song of the post: Ratatat – Wildcat

Streetstyle III: The boyish jacket

Nowadays there is no clothing piece on the earth which is only worthing for the female or masculine gender. Ask Marc Jacobs how can a man wear a skirt, or all those women fitted into a tomboy suite.

The same story again: No Rules.

The boyish jacket can be a perfect complement when you need to dress elegant but casual. A very simple piece which is similar to the LBD, it's always there for any occasion, and never gets old fashioned.

The same piece but different styles of women.
