do you know that stereotypical moment where the action star runs away from an impending explosion and moments later, KABOOM! and glass shards just come in all directions? or that moment when the action star gets a glass bottle smash on the head and still manages to execute some karate chops.
have you imagine how it might look if the shards would have gotten stuck in your hair?
well, Honor has done a rather impeccable job for the hair for its S/S 2013 RTW show. ok, maybe my interpretation of the hair is a lil far fetched but you must agree with me that its a beautiful hairstyle. its incredibly chic and effortless.
P.S i certainly hope no one is smashing their heads with glass bottles just to look this impeccable.
yea i know this is rather late but i recently chanced upon this editorial titled “Paper Plates” in Vogue UK June 2012. i assume this editorial was conceptualised with the the recent Olympic games held in London in mind because of the different sports featured in it.
however, that did not catch my attention. instead it was the extensive paper set design the team manages to create to infuse the model in this wonderland Alice will highly approve of.
i enjoyed how the paper manages to keep its materiality (being rigid) but at the same time retaining its fluidity, allowing the set to flow into each other seamlessly. and i admire how the art direction team kept to the idea of using just paper, without any form of other materials to be seen. (or maybe it was just very well hidden)

back in the fifties when food packaging was a ‘pop’ and especially made famous by Andy Warhol was the campbell soup cans.
well, Moschino thought the ‘pop’ should not just be made exclusively to the fifties, therefore their Menswear Spring/Summer 13 was in a Milanese Supermarket and with models (yeap you’re right) dressed in a ‘pop’ of colours and prints. Familiar packaging such as the Budweiser and Detergent boxes were cleverly incorporated into the collection, which i may add the polo tee is freaking awesome!
should i get one of these for my graduation outfit? tell me!

Ai Weiwei is a prolific Chinese artist who creates controversial works in regards to the politics and sadly, he is pursued by the Chinese government for his remarks. Now, he exhibits and showcases his works outside of China but still addresses the issues of his homeland.
His recent work titled “Stacked” is currently exhibiting in Italy and if you think Tampines is filled with people on bicycles, you should check this out. Consisting of 760 bicycles, stacked on one another, the height of the installation is nearly as tall as Jack’s beanstalk (no im kidding, just nearing the ceiling of the gallery).
But why such a space station / futuristic installation?
Simple. almost everything is made in China. The bicycle is the primary source of transport for the people in China, its a crucial part of their daily life. and please don’t quote my interpretation of this work using my only available knowledge towards art, but i think its a response to how the Chinese people contributes to the mass production of products demanded by the nation and the world.
the energy that is needed to operate the bicycle is what drives the production and almost like a cycle, the people feeds off the mass production in the form of a bicycle. also, the man made like structure created by the bicycles reminds one about the nation that is constantly growing.
