Go Bag

As a part of our homework assignement we were to do a mock up of a bag/purse/tote/backpack whe have designed. I was inspired by the unique fashion you can find in Harajuku.

The Vain Skull Bag Design


Here is the mockup itself, I made it very simple just the main torzo of the bag.

As I was “designing” a bag which would be edgy, different from normal bags I did not count on the possibility where I would have to make a mock up. It was a hell of a process! At least I realized how much would the people sewing the bag for me hate me actually, and how much I would respect them if they’d actually make it.

The Vain Skull Bag
Fabric needed – 1.5yard (faux leather) 35.33 $
Zipper long (5 cm) 2.00 $
Zipper short (3cm) 1.29 $
Decorative items (sequins, studs, patches) 15.00 $
0.5 hours @10$ 5.00 $
Total production cost 73.62 $
20% profit 14.72 $
Total cost plus profit 88.34 $
Estimated price 89.00 $

Here is the production cost and estimated price per one bag. Given the fact that the design itself is bit tricky, plus additional decoration – the price is higher due to the $ per 30min of work.

Yet, still when I asked few friends, they said that given the look and style of the bag, the price is quite normal. So yay!


Follow Rihanna to the Garden’s of Dior

It’s such a big deal. For me, for my culture; for a lot of young girls of any color. I think, to be acknowledged by Dior is just, it means a lot as a woman to feel beautiful, and elegant, and timeless.

– Rihanna

Rihanna proves the world why she was chosen to be the face of Dior in March this year in the full version of the brand’s campaign film. Being an idol and an inspiration for many people around the world, this 27 years old icon shines as a queen like character in  fourth chapter of the Secret Garden Saga.

She is fierce, the power just radiates of her as she walks in beauty trough the Salons of the Gods. Or when she suddenly runs through the Hall of Mirrors with the red veil fluttering behind her; all while we listen to the sound of her heels on the wooden floor and her new song Night from upcoming #R8 album. Rihanna also transforms into almost ethereal being as she dances in the gardens.

This dramatic, eerie story takes place at night and all the dim light makes this film simply magical. The fabulous clothing contrasts perfectly with the magnificence of the palace. And Rihanna struts as if she was born to be the Dior girl, born to be the Queen of the Night taking over the palace of the Sun King.

Would you follow her and catch a glimpse of this dark fairytale?

Znamená to tolik. Pro me, pro mou kulturu; pro plno mladých dívek jakékoliv barvy. Myslím, ze uznání od Diora je strasne.., znamená to tolik aby si zena pripadala nádherná, elegantní a nadcasová.

– Rihanna

Rihanna dokázala svetu, proc se stala tvárí celosvetove uznáváného modního domu Dior letos v Breznu. Idol a inpsirace pro mnoho lidí po celém svete, tato sedmadvacetiletá ikona zazárila vypadající jako královna ve ctvrté kapitole Secret Garden ságy.

Je divoká, v kazdém okamziku z ní sálá síla. Kdyz se prochází Salónem Bohu, nebo kdyz utíká skrze Zrcadlový Sál zatímco za ní vlaje rudý závoj a vse za zvuku jejích podpadku na drevené podlaze a písne Night z nadcházející alba #R8. Rihanna se také promení v témer étherickou bytost, kdyz tancí v záberech z Versaillských zahrad.

Tento dramatický, tajuplný az témer prízracný krátký film se odehravá v noci a to dodává této kampani nádeh mysticna. Zároven skvostne a precizne sité saty kontrastují dokonale s velkolepostí Versaille. Kde se Rihanna nese jako by byla dávno predurcená stát se Dívkou Dior, Královnou Noci a prevzít vládu v paláci Krále Slunce.

Následovali byste ji, abyste mohly letmo zahlédnout cást této temné pohádky?

Vampira meets the chola vibes at Givenchy FW15 show

Riccardo Tisci‘s shows are always powerful ones, and the Fall/Winter 2015 collection one is no exception.

The models hairdo was a typical chola street chick inspired, while the clothing seemed to be a Vampira alike attire. Yet the most striking for the overall looks were the face jewelery. Riccardo did a septum look before in his 2012 FW collection; making a fashion statement with a simple piece of accessory. However this year, he stepped the game up with a more “violent” version. While septum is becoming a trend among celebrities and street style fashionistas alike, I wonder how many will adopt this bold look.

Moreover, the whole show was veiled in a mysterious atmosphere, with nocturnal vibes to it. Still, the collection made you feel almost as if in the presence of a regal person. The clothes showed vicorian like waist focused pieces with some frill details, as well as jeweled pieces that just took my breath away.

What more can I say, will we become a royal sibling of the Addams family this fall?

Are we movin with our auntie, uncle and Moschino in Bel Air this fall?

Being the generation of kids who grew up on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series, the Moschino FW15 collection was a throwback for me. From the street, hip-hop vibe style to the uptown Bel-Air dames but blended together perfectly.

Models walked to rather catchy beat, with giant boom-box serving as a runway prop gave the whole show even more of the 90’s feel.

And even though street style inspiration is popular lately, Jeremy Scott managed to give it a certain spin-off standing out with his edgy collection combining pieces that only few would dare to wear together.

Moreover,since Jeremy is known for his great fantasy and turning the most obvious, everyday objects to fashion items; he did not fail to amaze me. Presenting 65 looks, all standing out yet the whole scheme was altogether flawlessly matched. From the quilted, vibrant colored coats, the jersey sport like attire to hoodie like skirt-suit I was beyond impressed. But my favorite part was the gowns, who looked like you peeled off the sprayed street art and applied it on the vintage looking dress giving them the fresh vibe.

How do enjoy the trip to the 90’s hip-hop American street style?
