Easy there, Mara Hoffman!

January 26, 2012

As you may have seen me tweet yesterday, my love for fashion designer Mara Hoffman has indeed been renewed! When I found out that she re-launched her website, I thought ‘I live for this stuff’, seeing how people take in the idea of the power of the internet and their individual creativity and come up with, well their online signature, it’s exciting! The New York born designer who studied at Parsons in NYC & Central Saint Martins in London, has created an amazing hub of bright, bold & Caribbean inspired images. The site it filled to the brim with colour & patterns and it has to be one of the best designer sites i’ve seen in a while. So keeping up with the times, you can buy her garments, straight from the site, which include some exclusive styles, that you can only get on Marahoffman.com !

Oh and before I forget, she has a BLOG! I’m talking hardcore inspiration board. I love it! You just have to check it out to understand.. 


Givenchy Couture’s got game!

January 25, 2012

As if you didn’t see a Givenchy Couture post coming up! Once again I can easily say that Riccardo Tisci has delivered a breath-taking collection of couture. It’s got a dark edge to it this season, that i’ve not seen in a while from his couture creations. It’s still fun, it still has the wearable element it always does and it still makes me love Givenchy, namely Tisci, even more.

Click on the image & view full size, because honestly, looking at the detail on the garments might just take your breath away..

Oh and as for the setting, well it’s different, totally juxtaposing & inspired the title of this post!
