This week I bring you the new video from Arca for his song “Thievery.” So I am dropping the video below the cut just because it is NSFW. The song comes from his soon to be released album “Zen.” If you aren’t sure of who he is, he recently produced songs for Kanye West. I also just heard about two weeks ago that he is producing some songs on Bjork’s new album. SO EXCITING!!
Paris Couture Week F/w 12 has basically ended and it was as beautiful as ever! I really enjoyed most of the collections this season! This couture season was very exciting for several reasons. First off Kimye or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West showed up and showed out by causing mass hysteria and mini pandemonium during the three or four days they were in Paris. Apparently even a child got pushed around in the mayhem. They even pissed off some editors and the like for showing up to the Stephane Rolland show one hour late. They were so late that they barely made it to the finale. SMH! Then we saw an overabundance of V-necks and cape dresses on the runway. I think those are two trends I can live with.
Kanye West showed his debut womenswear collection in France for Paris Fashion Week on Saturday, and reviews are decidedly mixed. While I think the collection needed an edit, I thought it was a great first collection nonetheless. Not everyone’s first collection turns out that well, but then again Kanye had some help from Central Saint Martins students.
While I think there were some great moments in the line, like the salmon colored zipper dress that Jourdan Dunn wore, and the very low cut black dress, or the Giuseppi Zanotti x Kanye West heels. I also think there were some low moments, like the monster hoodie, and the fact that everything looked like it came from every designer show Kanye had seen in the past. I also didn’t like how the packed front row of the hottest celebrities, designers, and fashion editors barely clapped through the final walk.
He has a ways to go, but it was a great first start. How do you all feel?
Also, I got this video from Fashion Bomb Daily. I haven’t been able to do all of my usual fashion week reviews lately because I have been busy with my final semester of graduate school. If you want some great fashion show reviews, check out Fashion Bomb Daily.
Here is a sneak peak of Kanye West’s new movie Runaway. It is supposed to air on MTV and BET on October 23rd. I can’t wait to see it. It has had some mixed reviews, but most of the reviews have been positive. It is supposed to be like Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker movie. I can’t wait to see it.
I have some great posts for you that probably won’t be made until Friday, unless I have some time tonight, because I will be driving back to Columbia after the Isaac Mizrahi show, instead of flying back to help my aunt out with her move. I went to some great showrooms while I was here. I can’t wait to show you some of the jewelry from Atelier Minyon.
I met some designers from my school. Hopefully they will send me some of their information, so I can show you their work. I also got some pictures from new designer Washington Roberts and some video from the Tibi show, although that video might be a little bright.
Also can we talk about how I saw Kanye West, Jason Sudeikis, and Cynthia Rowley walking around NYC the other day. I even nodded and Kanye and he actually said “What’s Up!” Can you talk about starstruck. I have also seen Robbie Meyers from Elle, Nina Garcia-who makes a pretty pregnant women, the blogger from WhereDidYouGetThat, and I also saw this famous fashion journalist whose name escapes me:( .
Photo taken with my camera phone.
Kanye West “Paranoid” feat Rhianna as some eye candy. I feel like she is finally being herself instead of pretending to be someone she isn’t, or maybe she just learned how to be a good actress.
UPDATE:I had to change the video because they removed it. Hopefully this one works.
that robot from the svedka vodka ads?
