I really want to go for a walk in some VIRR shoes. Loving there leather work.
Some of The Butcher and The Crow collection ‘skin & bones’, designed by Elisha Quintal.

“What began as a small hobby for New York-based designer, Sandee Shin, exploded into an entire line of avant-garde jewelry. Armor Jewelry is an arsenal of high fashion jewelry that dances between understated minimalism and the highly conceptual edge of fashion.
Launching in 2009, each piece of the collection is a unique sculpture for the body that reflects the lifestyles of those who aren’t afraid to push boundaries. Armor Jewelry is a hybrid of soft, subtle draping and a mix of sexy chain materials. Each metal chain texture is carefully chosen to reflect the concept and design of the final product. Materials are then deconstructed and reconfigured to create silhouettes that effortlessly add edge and elegance to any outfit. Each piece can hold it’s own with a simple white tee or be a crowning piece over a gown.
Shin’s background in performance art and design influences her choices in texture and draping. Every jewelry design is a personal work of art for Shin, and every piece is made-to-order and hand crafted with attention to every detail.”
I met Kyle at LFW Exhibition on Tuesday. He’s a good guy and makes some cool jewellery.
I haven’t posted for a while now. I blame a large weekend for that. I’m heading to London Fashion Week’s Exhibition today. I’m into seeing new talent thrive, so here are my favourites from the The Navy Board Room Collective which brings together a group of NEWGEN alumni. Young designers pushing their own work and getting well deserved respect.
My girlfriend is lending her talents to Clemency London at the moment and she says the new season (not out yet, images from AW11) has some amazing leathers, and I love leather done well! I’m looking forward to seeing the new collection.
Clemency London is designed by Alison Clemency-Buddenhagen, find out more about her and the label here.
For many years, Iris Schieferstein has worked with dead animals as raw material for her pieces of art. She joins the fragments together to new creatures and thus gives a new face to death. No matter, if her arrangements follow paintings of the great masters of art or if the joined objects turn out to be whole words – her work always gives evidence of aesthetic intutition and her inclination to subtle enterntainment. The earlier you die – the longer you are dead.
Designed by Michelle Watson, MICHI was founded in New York in 2010. MICHI is inspired by the seductive, sleek and fantastical super heroine costume mixed with sensual boudoir chic overtones, but is transformed to cater to a modern active lifestyle.
I did a post about the new Insight campaign late last year. Insight are consistently good with there campaigns and I have respect for everyone involved in creating them. Here’s a little behind the scenes clip of the shooting.
