I know, I know… we’re just starting to get some warm temps in Toronto, however, looking at this collection makes me long for Fall. I attended a preview of Rudsak‘s Fall 2013 line called Stardust, a nod to the 70′s. There were hints of disco glam yet the pieces still maintained their modern edge. So much effort goes into the construction and detailing in all of their pieces; you can change the style of the coats with an additional zip or turn of the collar and most hoods and fur trim are detachable.
Rudsak is known for their leather jackets and bags but I think what surprised me most is their clothing line. Kudos to designer Evik Asatoorian. I wanted to take everything home with me! The collection will be available in stores this July/August so we don’t have to wait too long, thank goodness.
This year’s theme for the Met Gala was PUNK: Chaos to Couture and I don’t think anyone did it better than Linda Fargo. I mean, the hair alone did it for me. While most people donned their designer gowns and looked beautiful, a select few took the theme seriously and I applaud them for it.
I saw the pants for this McQueen Spring/Summer collection at Holt’s last weekend and fell in love. The honeycomb and bee pattern are sooo good. I immediately went to the website to scope out the accessories. When I came across the Honeycomb Heroine bag, I knew I was in trouble; I’m now obsessed with it.
The MTV movie awards aired on Sunday and I just finished going through all of the red carpet looks. I think best-dressed for me was once again Zoe Saldana in Givenchy.
Of course, this IS MTV, so I figured I would choose something out-of-the-ordinary to draw. I definitely had lots to choose from: Macklemore in his electric blue suit and cape, Will Ferrel in his million dollar suit, and little Ke$ha in her lace pants. Oh my, the options!
I settled on this cigarette butt headpiece by Alain Lafaille for He-Ha worn by Pitch Perfect’s Hana Mae Lee because it’s definitely over-the-top ridiculous but it’s also fun and made me laugh.
