The higher the heel the closer to heaven, isn’t that how the story goes? Well if that is in fact the case we wouldn’t be far off from that loft in the sky wearing Gianmarco Lorenzi’s shoes. Oh how I covet the. Recently stumbled over the wily ways of the world wide web and upon Farfetch.com, ahem, one of my favourite and most used internet retailers f to the y I, and into the den of stiletto’s that is Gianmarco’s heel’s. Worn on the movers and shakers, the beyonce’s et al. On my wish list, and perhaps I may be so bold as to make it my product of purchase for the week…this luxe luxe luxe two toned pump. Suede and metal, meow. Give me right meow…
Farfetch.com is one of my favorite sites to shop and style from as it is a unique retailer, bringing together luxe global fashion boutiques and creating an online retail community. What makes them my retailer of choice this week and quite often, and more importantly why you should check them out…this stuff is highly selected. It’s a finely curated assortment of what I think makes up the list best designers in the world right now. Relevant, edgy, and gorgeous…Ann Demeulmeester, Acne, Rick Owens, Raquel Allegra, The Row, just to name a few. And not only do they do women well, but the men just as strong. And this is why farfetch.com is one of and many of, my favorite things all at the same time.
So …. should I get them? hmmm…. maybe the boots instead.

it hits a soft spot in me when taxidermy comes up, so when i stumbled upon these works, my heart went pitter patter. artist Peter Gronquist sculptures have perhaps, more of a societal statement then i’m used to with my taxidermy. Although there is tremendous beauty in them i can’t help but feel like poor pete was once involved with a label whore and therefore working his angst for mass branding out on his art. Its an intersting topic none the less with some creative mediums. i think i’ll take my taxidermy sans gucci, but say hell yes to the chanel croc. anyone?

Its another BWBW exclusive. Finally I can share with you something that has been in the works for a while now. Raif Adelberg, formerly of too many cool credits to list, returns to his women’s wear line with the debut of his spring summer 2013 collection. It was a natural fit to style and model Raifs lookbook for the collection… was stoked to do it in all honesty. With a similar aesthetic and taste value it was a match made in styling heaven. Gorgeous, hand died cashmere and layering pieces. Luxury pieces with the edge and legitimacy of street wear. Cooler than cool. Perfect fit for the so-cal surf/skater girl who also loves 5th ave. Bergdorfs et al have already picked up, and he is now presenting during Paris Fashion week. Expect more…its just the start.
