This is how my wrists have been looking lately. I have been spending a lot of time hunting down accessories. Bracelets are my new fetish, along with my undying love for rings, leather goods, and shoes. On top of all this, I have made great strides in decorating my house. Something slowed down the creative process these passed months and my dwelling has not yet reached its full potential. Thankfully I stumbled upon the perfect pieces for the living room. Pictures to come soon.
The second issue of Industrie Magazine is also out on newsstands (the one where the cover shows Marc Jacobs is in drag). It was heartbreaking to buy it at the Borders by my work because I discovered the location was closing down. Borders served as a convenient/surprisingly dependable source for most of my favorite fashion magazines. I am sad to see it go. Anyway, this issue of Industrie reviews a list of influential fashion people in 2010. The magazine is "dedicated to the culture of fashion," making the content particularly current and relevant because we live in a new age where magazine editors, writers/bloggers, and photographers are celebrities. The new year has already garnered enough content to write about for the rest of 2011. Carine Roitfeld's departure from French Vogue, John Galliano's dismissal from Dior, and now Kim Jones' new direction Louis Vuitton are all a bit mind blowing right now.
BTW Congratulations, Mr. Jones. I love your work with Umbro, and I cannot wait to see what you do with the menswear collections at Louis Vuitton. Sorry that your moment is totally eclipsed by Galliano's epic scandal.
