Next season CHANEL wants you to think like an Octopus. Drip yourself in as many Chanel things as you can, pretend you’re an old showgirl that’s too paranoid to leave your jewelry in your dressing room, or you’re a little senile and still dwell on the day Sammy Davis Jr bought you a French 75 at The Tropicana, so you lurk around there on sunday nights asking people if they’re in “showbiz” or in “the pictures”.
Also don’t forget extra limbs mean multiple bags, a lady can never have too many shoes,bags or cats.

Dolce & Gabanna is so Italian. It’s italian like spaghetti and meatballs, FIATs and family. What animal defines the italian way?

A WHALE, A KILLER WHALE. Killer whales roll deep, out in the wild they are pretty much a typical organized gang, kind of like a MOB or a really badass family. What better animal to represent? Plus they also love Prosecco and emphasizing words with their fins. oh and Fin is an italian word for end, and a fin is like the end of a whale!!! crazeballs!!

My second option for the non italian coastliners was an adorable little turtle. He’s just slowly following in the steps of his turtle ancestors, The Ninja Turtles! They’re all italian too! well they’re named after italians and only eat pizza, so it’s official in my book.

On a quest to find unconventional and more provocative animals to place in fashion campaigns. I spent the last week searching for new muses for us admire. I mean who needs more snakes anyway. I’ll be posting them throughout the week.
This Cavalli Spring 2012 Campaign not only includes supermodels. It also has one of my favorite most graceful birds; a flamingo. Pink, eats lots of shrimp and mostly found in Florida, kind of like your grandma.

Alber… why are there so many muthafucking snakes in the muthafucking campaign?????

Lanvin Sping/Summer 2012

Hasn’t this been done a ton already? we get it, silk, sex, snakes, blah blah blah. Can’t they throw in a kangaroo or something?? I need to be wowed.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012! I love the use of stripes and Ethnic prints, although Boxing Kitten still holds the throne as the perfect use of African print fabrics on feminine silhouettes. But I do adore the variety of printed TrenchCoats and Jackets. I saw a bit of that last spring at some fast fashion shops and I’m into it. Although when done wrong It’s like spreading excessive tinsel on an already overly decorated xmas tree- I call that a Dominican Cris-Ma. But if done right, with color blocked seperates or neutral prints like stripes, it totally works and may even help you look like a Hillman alum. Printed Jackets for all next spring!

Gucci’s S/S 2012 Ready To Wear was more Black, White and G-G-G-G-GOLD! Are all these designers conjuring up Metal inspired apparel because the price of gold is going up and therefore we may feel more opulent and luxurious? Or is this all for Moi’s benefit (so much luxury I had to channel a little Miss Piggy).
