I *LOVE* Danica Lo. I always read her articles and I think she’s fierce. I really do. As you all know, New York Fashion Week is in full swing and it’s great the folks at the New York Post have these videos. Check out the model’s reaction when Danica asked him how he felt about models making a ton of money just to walk a show.
"Yeahhhhhh" (cue phony laughter)
Fuck them damn pennies, nickels and dimes. I don’t know about you but hella can you imagine if I had the looks, the vajayjay and the figure? I don’t want no money to wiggle my ass down the runway. I want free trade! Gimme free trade! Trade as in a free pair of 6-inch shoes and a fantastic dress! JK.
It would be interesting to see whether or not she makes it on the runways of Bryant Park in two weeks. Also, I *definitely* want to see what’s written on the back of that showcard. I bet you they have her listed as "5’11" like they all do to girls who are 6ft++. Alice Burdeu, at least according to various sources online, is 6 foot 1!
Oh my god I totally didn’t see this one coming. Miuccia Prada decided to discontinue Miu Miu for Men. For realz. Spring 2008 is their last collection.
"On a different note, Miu Miu has discontinued its men’s wear line to focus on strengthening its women’s business, whose sales have more than doubled in two years, hitting $297 million in 2007. The spring 2008 men’s collection will be the last to be manufactured and sold by the Prada-owned brand." – via WWD
It’s been a madhouse the past few days. I’m sure y’all have noticed the hard work I’m doing on my site and all the sparse updates; I’ve gained so much weight from being in front of the computer for so long! You think it’s easy being a one-man circus? No, let me tell you it ain’t so. ANYHOO, let’s get back to business. I just heard from someone that Anna Wintour and the American Vogue team went to Balenciaga right this moment to view the collections in what they call "Market Week". Yes, a FULL month ahead of Paris fashion week. According to the snitch, Anna & Co. went to there today (yesterday for you third world folks) for a preview. Photo of the Balenciaga showroom below.
Here’s what to expect for Fall/Winter 2008/2009. Colour palette: tangerine orange, white, black, beige, ecru, tomato red. There’s a pair of cobalt blue skinny jeans, mesh tights, a salmon-coloured taffeta dress with a white shawl, a long black lacy dress, a couple of long floral print dresses, fur-lined coats (fox) and 2 hunting hats. Note: the exact color names are NOT accurate but that should give you an idea of what’s coming up. I know it’s vague but I’m not gonna demand anything else from the snitch. I don’t want to spoil it for everybody, including myself. What makes "fashion" truly magical is to see the unexpected. Quite frankly, I’d rather just wait for an entire month to see everything online… element of surprise and all that.
PS. Asked what the general theme is and this is what the person had to say: "like an equestrian hunter in mainly different variations of either
patent/suede/velvet 6" ankle boots, theres also these knee high wedge
leather boots. there are some pieces that are feminine and the pants
that are more masculine."

Jil Sander held its menswear fashion show yesterday in Milan. I was anxiously looking for my male model favourites (I’m a sucker I know) and then I noticed these dizzying array of patterns and prints. The first thing that came to my mind was…
Woah. We no longer have to troll around Aloha Rag or Browns to masturbate to Margiela late at night. Maison Martin Margiela MM6 shoes, bags, clothes, necklaces, accessories and more, both men’s and women’s, are now available at eLuxury.
With fashion week just around the corner, models showcards are flying all over the place on the net and this one caught my eye. Her name is Katriina O’Kane and she’s with the modeling agency Supreme — the same agency that brought you rising stars like Suvi Koponen and Rachel Clark. I like Supreme. They’re very very cool — they found a niche (very tall and very slim and slender girls) and they stick to it. They specialize in "intelligent" beauty…

So. How does Katriina make you feel? I for one feel festively plump compared to her ugh. It’s 2AM and I’m skipping my breakfast later, that’s for sure. Hahaha! I could see Olga Sherer running for her money as I’m typing this. LOL. Just kidding.
I think she’s very tall and very, very slim. The word "fragile" comes to mind. If you look at her legs on the photo on the left, you’ll see there’s a little bit of "space" between her lower leg and her stockings… but then again, I’m not sure if those are her stockings… or shadow/edge of her legs.
It would be interesting to see how Katriina does on the runway this season.
Her royal highness and fashion icon Isabella Blow reaches out from the grave to ask you the following questions. If you don’t know who she is, you might as well slit your wrists and swim in your own pool of blood. Just kidding.
There are only 3 questions and it shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds of your time. If it does then you pretty much fail in life. Click click click!
