Dazed & Confused photographer Lea Colombo graces the blog again! Hot of the internet press, a dreamy glance of Marc Jacobs, who beautifully closed NYFW yesterday. It was a mixture of mystery and destiny, blank pages saying everything, clouds with no rain. It was a much softer version of Jacobs we've seen especially in comparison to his closing show for Louis Vuitton last season, but a welcomed vision nonetheless. Of course, everyone's been gabbing about a braless Kendall Jenner, but I personally thought it was a pretty seamless intervention. In stride with a heavily concentrated focus on his personal brand, Jacobs really seemed to capture a streamlined vision of what I hope to be my future with pale cashmere and ghostly gauzes.

I've been a fan of Kesler Trans' work for longer than I can count on my fingers or toes now, so it goes without saying that his most recent shoot has found a special place in my heart. He usually works on a traditional scale of high contrast black and white, but what's gotten me all shaken up over this shoot is the super dreamy production with a purposeful light leak effect that romanticizes and adds such a sultry appeal.

I just found out I'm most likely kicking off my summer in Hawaii for a week and it's got me revved up hotter than the spring sun on winter skin. Here in LA, summer has not-so-subtly been peeking it's head around the corner saying, "Hello, is it me you're looking for?" While I'm not falling for it just yet, it has made me a bit wistful to say the least. I'm lucky enough to have the beach at my disposal, but with all that's going on with school and the new collection, I hardly get to take advantage of it- which is why I'm going to live vicariously through this post until I can say aloha to some sand.

It's been a riot over here. Literally. For this semester's mini collection, were handed the theme of British 1970s, and my head naturally started swarming with visions of The Glimmer Twins: metallics, fanciful embroideries, couture treatments on hand-me-down fabrics, a powdery (wink, wink) color palate, androgynous sex appeal, etc. Once that was locked down, I started creating my first piece which was a yoke skirt. I should say that there are some requirements that come along with this collection, given that it is for school, one for this being that it actually had to have a yoke. Aside from that, all that was left was free love; and from there manifested my favorite piece I've created so far. I was hugely inspired by Anita Pallenberg and Mick Jagger in the 1968 film, "Performance," easily noted in the embroidery on the yoke of the skirt. I'm still pretty fired up for pulling this one off and can't wait to finish the rest of the collection. Soon to come: empire peasant blouse and plaid shirt dress!
