This is how our new closet will look.
My wife soberly pointed out the fact that we "have a lot more shit than that" in our closets.
But, my cunning plan was to throw away everything except designer dresses, little luxury packaging, scents and anything vintage and have it more as an installation. Nice-o-rama!
Until it happends (never) I just have to check out the real thing in the "secret closet" store in tokyo where I'm going next week.
In a big, fat, juicy business class seat, homes.

Band Of Outsiders launched their womens line, called Boy.
It's the perfect example of doing womens wear sexy as hell without being skimpy.
Not that skimpy is bad. Skimpy can be fantastic. This is however, let's say, more sophisticated? And so much more difficult to do. And, pretty please, with sugar on top, go eat your f####ng hart out Juicy Couture.
Buy or die.

I need to quit facebook. It's horribly shallow (and fantastic) takes up way too much of my time. Time that could have been spent on getting this blog somewhat interesting instead..
Anyone familiar with a voyeristic 1968 photography book Les Erotique du Regard?
Coolest book I've seen. (it was in Dover Street Market, of course..at 1500 GBP.)
On a side note, when all pictures, cuttings and pieces of fabrics for coming seasons have been taken off "the wall", and there's like just a few lonely items hanging there, that's when peace enters. And it looks kind of nice as well.

Crate Denim's Chad Hilton gave a really un-predictable answer to a really predictable question in WGSN lately.

"What direction do you feel denim is going in?"
"I don't know. We will continue to do what we feel we do best, which is American-made, well-fitting clothing."

Sweet he's not spewing out "Ehhm, we're like about converting denim in to a big yellow bird, oversized yet kind of sublime, maybe smelling like cookies? And in a pinkish grey shade, or something?"

Also, their secret service store is way cool.
(It looks a bit Band of Outsiders-ish, and anything that looks like B.o.U is cool)

By the way, I will post some pics from the "Take Ivy" book and the Rhode Island yearbooks within a week or so.
(Sorry, haven't seen it around anywhere else, will post if I do, promise)
