Lt. Ohura Would Rock It

Science fiction meets glam-rock, color splash and metal shine, leotards with shoulder-padding... that's Pam Hogg. Looking for the real rock chick outfit? These clothes don't even need music, they rock themselves.

Átame! Tie Me Up!

My latest jewelry-work: a crocheted rope snuggling around the neck. Hope I find more ropes in interesting colors, but i do like the clear white and red of this one.

Remember Samantha in Sex And The City was trying to give new inspiration to her love-life, with sushi? It's an old Japanese tradition called Nyotaimori or Nantaimori (whether it's a woman or a man). Well, if you don't have somebody around who could work as a plate, I found these at a design store, designed by Hiroshi Tsunoda. Mmmhh Bodylicious!

Snow White

On Sunday April 26 will Staatstheater Berlin have premier for "Snow White", on the music of Gustav Mahler, a ballet by my favourite choreographer for contemporary dance: Angelin Preljocaj from Aix-en-Provence. The costumes are by Jean Paul Gaultier.
It was already shown at the Biennale de la dance de Lyon. What the pictures can tell, this will be a piece of eye-candy extraordinaire!

An Asian Romance

My dear friend Viki, from Seville in Spain, launched her S/S09 fashion collection "Shanghaian Springtime Walkers". Beautiful rich colors and lovely adorned as always.
If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind dress, and are in love with unique details like old buttons, ribbons and sweet applications, and need some color-splash from Andalusia, then check out her site!

Fleurs Du Mal

by Chris Cunningham for Gucci

The Sick Muse

My poor Muse, alas! what ails you today?

Your hollow eyes are full of nocturnal visions;

I see in turn reflected on your face

Horror and madness, cold and taciturn.
Have the green succubus, the rosy elf,

Poured out for you love and fear from their urns?

Has the hand of Nightmare, cruel and despotic,

Plunged you to the bottom of some weird Minturnae?
I would that your bosom, fragrant with health,

Were constantly the dwelling place of noble thoughts,

And that your Christian blood would flow in rhythmic waves
Like the measured sounds of ancient verse,

Over which reign in turn the father of all songs,

Phoebus, and the great Pan, lord of harvest.

Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil

(William Aggeler, Fresno, CA: Academy Library Guild, 1954)

Get Yourself A Hattie

Topsy Turvy Design is one of my favourite milliners. If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind head piece, historical hats, or a burlesque va-va-voom fascinator, that's the place. Mrs Brown is simply fantastic!
Read the interview Doe Deere made with her!
And visit her shops: on etsy/her homepage.

What To Do With...

What to do with - plastic label fastenings...What to do with - shoestrings...

What to do with - old sequin embroideries...

What to do with - drinking straws...

Thanks to Maison Martin Margiela, a groundless source for DIY-tips. I never knew what to do with those stupid label fastening thingies ;)

About Clayton Cubitt

I've lately been very fascinated by the photography of brooklyn-based Clayton Cubitt. He has done some very beautiful yet disturbing fashion photography, and some amazing portraits of people after the disaster of hurricane Katrina. And then there is his art, always struggling between too porn for art, or too art for porn...
I love the contrast between very outspoken, explicit sexuality and a very polished, elegant style. It's like a tribute to the beauty of the craft and the beauty of desire.

"Cubitt's beautiful body of works is a study in contrast of the irregular and irrepressible physicality of sex and his controlled, sleek sense of style. His work is gritty without being earnest or silly, and a playful yet mature intimacy in his approach to "adult play"." (more)

You can find a really great interview-film with him here.

The pictures here are from a serial called "Cream".

Pamela Tuohy and Edward Novinsky design and craft one-of-a-kind, or at least limited edition jewelry. Precious pieces which always tell a story. Historical pictures of animals or miniatures adorn these little pieces of art. Even the materials carry a story inside themselves. Metals and stones are reclaimed, old jewelry reborn, but with an aura of the stories they could tell...

The lovers-eye was very popular in the 18th/19th century, were it was common to carry a medallion with a miniature of your family with you. But if you wanted a memory of your secret lover, painters produced lovers-eye-pictures, like those above. In a eye you could see the soul, the love and the passion. And if that wasn't clear enough, a little tear would give expression.

Strawberry Hats Forever

I love little flirty hats. Et voilà, here is one of my own design: a little round shaped felt hat with strawberries.
