One of my favourite shows from the recent Spring 2012 collections was the “new” Kenzo – which was recently taken over by creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the geniuses behind Opening Ceremony. Which, of course, explains why there’s a certain wacky & fun edge to the all the pieces. I couldn’t help but feel that the setting for these knock-out outfits was slightly bland, so I decided to re-imagine some of my favourite looks in decidedly different scenery…
These gorgeous throws designed by Klaus Haapaniemi, who has previously created prints for Diesel, Levi’s Cacharel, Clements Ribeiro and Marimekko, are traditionally woven using only the purest and most luxurious materials. They are ridiculously expensive but equally amazing, right?
Leave it to Dolce & Gabbana to express their huge appetite for life (and Italy) with their Spring 2012 Collection. Dresses printed with eggplants, tomatoes and hot peppers sauntered down the runway, Sophia Loren was heard singing the ever-so-cliché “Mambo Italiano” and . . . WTF?! Pasta earrings and accessories!? What a molto bene DIY! With just a quick trip to the supermarket and bead store, these kitschy but totally fun pasta earrings are a cinch to make.
