Coach X Rodarte

Collaborations can be everything- not only are they usually more affordable than the larger designer brand, but there is this creative mainstream appeal that has a different voice than the brands individually. The Coach Rodarte collaboration is hard edged and soft, masculine and feminine with ornate beaded and studded sequin floral embellishments on leather, gold chain…

Certain taboos seem outmoded- Free the damn nipple people, they’re baby bottles for Christ’s sake. Nudity?

Fashion, design, sewing- they’ve always been a source of inspiration, creative expression, even necessary skills passed down from my mother who taught me how to sew.  She taught my younger brothers and I how to mend a hem, reattach a button, iron, all when we were young children.  She imparted upon us the skills she…

Fashion Ads

I said I was all of a sudden going to look a lot more normal with the onset of the androgyny and dandy trend for fall, 😂.  The Versace ad shown below looks like it could’ve been styled in my closet…yes, I have leather meggings (although it was for Halloween).    I can’t recall seeing a…
