Germany Influences Prada A/W 2014

Prada. Every season is something out of the box. Sometimes making us question if the pieces should stay in the box. According to Style.com, Miucca Prada took inspiration from German artist Joseph Beuys: His extensive work is grounded in concepts of humanism, social philosophy and anthroposophy; it culminates in his “extended definition of art” and the idea of social sculpture as …

Nipples On the Runway – NSFW?

While living in Minneapolis a few years ago I found myself deep in prudish conversation about nudity on the runway. A naked model might not be your thing, but it certainly isn’t pornography.

THRIFTED: DESIGN BRIEFCASE & ROC TODO

Thrifted: Design Briefcase This weekend I was able to find this awesome retro style leather briefcase. It was “locked” and I spent probably ten minutes trying to figure out the combination, knowing there would be a deed to a mansion and several million dollars hidden inside.

Runway: John Galliano

Spring 2013 Collection: The runway is modest. Many of the styles are beautiful. The looks were cohesive, although there many are included in this collection.  It’s dark for a spring collection, but personally I appreciate that.
