Love Angel Music Baby

I have always thought Gwen Stefani had amazing style, a sort of mix of sexy, funky, piratey cuteness that I have never understood how she manages to pull off. I think part of the attraction is the glamour of all the tiny details in her looks.

Her new S/S '11 collection is just as inspiring, pirate-like looks, billowing tartan fabrics, thick black eyeliner... She also has some gorgeous fabrics in there, vibrant and patterned in a way that subtly reminds me of those beautiful alien like patterns from Alexander Wang.

Anyway, here are all of my favourite looks from the collection, let me know what you think!

The necklace combined with the hairstyle and long dress is somehow really beautiful, and reminds me of egypt.  

I love the lace peeking out under the tartan here, its reminds me of the whole underwear peeking out of overwear look from last year and to me it seems to make the whole look very subtly feminine
A bikini under a jacket, tres chic :)
I love the mix of this African style necklace with a traditional black jacket, it makes the whole look somehow sexier and fresher.

Fashion Week in 3D

Aaaah I am very excited, it's fashion week and I am a bit overwhelmed with all the fashion my brain is processing at the moment...Anyway to get back down to earth I am collecting all my favourites at the moment ready for blogging analysis but for now I'd just like to share with you a couple of looks from the one collection that has really stuck in my head.

These pictures are taken from the Karla Spetic S/S11 collection from Australia.

 When first seeing them, these designs had the odd effect of almost bending my 'fashion' mind in a different direction. I know that we have had patterns, prints and even peoples faces printed on clothes for a while now but this brings us to another level. The winding road shown on the skirt above looks almost 3D and seems to give us a glimpse of another place that we could just drive to through the skirt itself. We are all comfortable with clothes in different shapes and textures but what about clothes with different places on them? Clothes that stand out, not due to their design or the specific model wearing them , but because of the beauty, uniqueness and general alive 'real' feeling of the image shown on them!?
