THE SAINT LAURENT BOY IS A GIRL

It's no secret that I've been lusting after and obsessing over the recently launched Saint Laurent Paris spring-summer collection. In the next few days you'll probably get bombarded with Saint Laurent related posts - after all I am obsessed so you'll have to bear with me lol. Nonetheless, I myself have been wondering what the fixation I have is all about. Is it the simple yet provocative aesthetic seen across pieces from the collection? Is it the glorious return of the pant suits with tight-fitting silhouettes? Is it the evocative and statement-making accessories and pieces? Well, Slimane best captures it in his recently released campaign [idea], if you will - THE SAINT LAURENT BOY IS A GIRL. It's as simple as that. Saint Laurent's collection brings to life the essence of my sense of fashion - the androgynous look, the blurring of gender lines, the transcendence of it all. Brilliant ain't it? Yes it may be a provocative statement to make but honestly it's a statement that needs to be made. Pure love! Enough said.

By now I think most of you would've heard that Givenchy's guru - Ricardo Tisci - designed RiRi's outfits for her latest concert and I must say they are fly! Below would be a glimpse of the pieces from her Toronto tour kick-off.

INSIDE the CHANEL JACKET

If there is one thing I'm craving for and am absolutely dying to have - that would be a classic jacket from Chanel. As the Maestro would say it, "there are things in fashion that would never go out of style - jeans...a white shirt...and a Chanel jacket." And darn it I agree!

Oh how I long for the day and that day must come soon!

THE PERFECT FLOWER STORM

Prada has released its SS2013 campaign and true to form it is as eccentric and as fabulously elegant as the pieces we saw in the runway a few months back. I just love it!!! It's sheer art and poetry - a refreshing take on the dynamic persona of the modern day female.

This is taking girl and flower power to a whole new level eh? Brava Prada!
