I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Kinder Aggugini

Lacrimosa of Mozart’s Requiem Mass opened Kinder Aggugini’s AW10 with a gothic vibe; with the catwalk decorated like an 18th Century court palace, the military coats and soot-black, hand drawn hairlines set the mood of resistance and rebellion. In fact, the collection is said to have been inspired by the heroine Juliette Recamier (Dame who stood in political opposition to Napoleon in the early 19th Century) – the pieces were powerful yet lyrical, borderline androgynous yet the hints of light fabric under a tough coat (and heels with spats!) acutely underlined femininity.

This show was probably my personal favourite, admiring especially how Aggugini was faithful to his inspiration and how he elaborated on it with a contemporary flair that made every item, well, ready-to-wear. And of course, the military thing always does it for a history nerd like myself.

Watch this catwalk at his official website.

  19. shini, these photos are insane! you’ve done such an incredible job. the details are incredible! (i’m seriously dreaming of getting a new camera for my birthday… could seriously use some advice on what is best to get). love the detail on the black and white dress. was in brick lane today and saw loads of vintage red military jackets similar to the one in the first photo… beautiful! xx
