When NYFW ends and all eyes turn to London, one of the collections I look forward to the most is Ashish. He's the man that can work sequins like a puppet master, and if money weren't an issue, my closet would be that much more sparkly. For Spring, Ashish took inspiration from a party girl's hangover trip to her local corner store. This came through in the Coca-cola emblazoned tops, tribal jewelry, grocery bags, and multicultural influences that reflect the diversity of the shop owners. The party girl in me (and there's a lot of it) is swooning over so many of the pieces. Not to mention, Coca-cola never goes out of style.. just sayin.
It's "that time of the year" again...FASHION WEEK. The very words send the average person's eyeballs on a quick spin around their sockets, but most people reading this blog probably give at least half a shit. A big part of that is seeing what all the cool kids going to the circus wore. Well imagine if your fave 90s cartoon characters attended fashion week- what shows would they go to and what would they wear? Italian illustrator, Michele Moricci contemplated that with Swagger New York and the results are pretty spot on (although I think Beavis & Butthead would be more likely to wear the real deal gear from Santa Cruz versus Jeremy Scotts ripoffs).
