Fashion for Film

This is taking it to the next level, and I wish I could add some extra pages to my thesis!

Gucci, the Italian fashion house with a thing for film (see here, here and here), has designed 3D-glasses! And I know it's not hard to top the traditional ones, but these aviator glasses look supercool. I remember that during Avatar we discussed the fact that in the future everyone would own their own pair of 3D glasses, and I would eagerly join since the ones you get in the cinema often are broken or too damn greasy, which ruines the experience. The Gucci glasses apparently are $225 and the idea of going green and recycling just might win me over...

Update: Armani apparently came up with the same idea...

Fashion Influences Film

 Who knows, maybe the sight of this would make Alexander McQueen smile. His Harry Potter-inspired fashion spectacle was textbook material and it surely is interesting that one of his Fall/Winter 08-creations now seems to copied for the latest Harry Potter film.

Film influences fashion influences film.

Shark Attack - Give away

My lovely sister is doing a give away on her blog: you can win a Roberto Cavalli-ring! Good luck!

I am most definitely aware of the fact that I'm not a bracelet-kind of person, although I've been wearing my Return to Tiffany's-one on a daily basis, but I fell in love with this jewel years ago and lately, the LOVE-ad campaign seems to be featured in every magazine that I come across, which makes me want the bracelet even more.

I'm crazy for the fact that the LOVE-bracelet needs to be un-cuffed using a tiny screwdriver and that it's so plain and minimalistic, yet timeless. But maybe it's too simple for Cartier'ish-amounts of money? Anyone any idea how much the white gold ones are? By the way, those bulky rings in the Panthère by Cartier-collection are pretty amazing as well. How I wish I wore rings...

PS: Still on my wish list ... totally different style, both in the same price range though ...

Proenza Schouler

Just as thrilled as I was when I saw these tie-dye shirts, just as disappointed I would be when I saw the following sentence: "We are unable to deliver to countries and territories outside the US at this time." Please, dear PS, hold one green/black/white item for me in a size S for me in the meantime...

La Mer

I just had to buy the Gel de la Mer-moisturizing cream for my sister. Now, let's just hope she'll now stop using her The Body Shop-treatments and will become an Estée Lauder Companies-addict just like me... ;)

I've tried the gel myself this weekend, and I must admit, it feels incredibly soft and light on your skin...

Paris Wishlist

Since our city trip is only a few weeks away, my sister and I are already preparing our itinerary along Paris' must see-shops.

As mentioned before, I'm crazy for French rock 'n roll boy meets girl-brand The Kooples, and so off course my wish list consists of some cool items of the label. The pants are definitely work wear material while the grey sweater is just an easy going piece for cold fall days -love those sheer details btw.
