Time Keeps On Slipping...

I'm so jealous of designers that actually have time to do fashion illustrations before sampling.
Here are some of my favourites, although I suspect there is an entire culture of artists who simply create an artistic interpretation of printed campaigns, shoots and other designer's collections. Not that there's anything wrong with that. God knows I'd love to do that all day!

Sorry no credits have been given, as I am lazy to the extreeeme.

Genuine Rock Star.
Wow, it's been 14 years now.
The following article is 7 years old:
"It is seven years ago today that the Manic Street Preachers troubled guitarist Richey Edwards vanished, and, as his body has never been found, he can be declared legally dead.So was he another rock n roll suicide and did his act of self-mutilation at a Norwich venue signal a slide into depression and ultimately his death?
The rather eerie, crypt-like Norwich Arts Centre would not feature in a list of rocks most legendary landmarks. It was, however, in the converted church in St Benedicts Street, that one of rock n rolls most infamous and horrifying photographs was captured, in all its gruesome detail.
Moments earlier, Richey Edwards, then guitarist and songwriter with the Manic Street Preachers, had, in the middle of an interview with NMEs Steve Lamacq, produced a razor blade from his pocket and gouged his arm, creating the blood-splattered message 4 Real.
The distressing picture, which has been voted number 16 in Q magazines Top 100 Rock Photographs Of All Time, shows the ethereal Edwards clutching a rolled up bandage in his hand and baring the full and terrible extent of his self-mutilation.
What adds to the pictures discomfiting, but strangely transfixing quality is that less than four years later, the deeply troubled Edwards had disappeared, believed to have thrown himself into the waters of the River Severn.
He has never been found. ...."

Things Were Very Different Then

This bed has seen it all,
from the first time to the last,
the silences of now,
and the good times of the past.
And it only cost ten pounds,
from a shop just down the road,
mind you, that was seven years ago,
and things were very different then.

La Tristesse Durera [The sadness will continue]

Life has been unfaithful
And it all promised so so much...
I sold my medal, it paid a bill
It sells at market stalls
Parades Milan catwalks
Oh, the sadness will never go
Will never go away
Baby, it's here to stay
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
- Manic Street Preachers

The Brilliance of Bertie

On Fire

By Colleen Yancy

Cutest. Sweater. Ever.



I bought this little Birdy Necklace in Tokyo a while ago, and every single time I wear him, the compliments come rollin'. So I thought I'd give y'all the heads up.
It's from Paraphernalia, their whole deal is finding beautiful vintage illustrations, printing and cutting them on a frosted acrylic [which feels really cool]. And they're so cheap!!

Here's some on my wishlist..
