Asger Juel Larsen SS12

Asger Juel Larsen’s ‘We Live’ Spring/Summer 2012 collection is everything I’d want my boyfriend to wear. Larsen’s got the sickest creepers, even his sparkly creepers are so rad. His collaboration with Dico Copenhagen was genius! Gothic hoodies, jumpers and shirts resembling faded shadows, skinny leather long shorts, layered with cotton shorts, and oversized tanks, are definitely certified swag. Larsen talks about how he merged working man machinery into the collection stating, “Work doesn’t come to a complete standstill when the sun comes up.” Larsen’s entire Spring/Summer 2012 collection was created to ignite the alluring unexpected darkness that can come from Summer, where electric night skies and intense shadows from the sun play their part in the intoxicating twist. Larsen has created a toughness throughout this collection, even the skinny fit suits could be interpreted as straight jackets. It takes the party monster out from the dark basement clubs…

Sorcha O’Raghallaigh FW12

Sorcha O’Raghallaigh is the young Irish designer known for creating a number of phenomenal dresses for Mother Monster, Lady Gaga. Sorcha, a graduate of Central St. Martin in London, fashioned a glorious gown that the show stopping star wore on The Graham Norton Show. Gaga also donned another Sorcha O’Raghallaigh original for her video, Born This Way. Sorcha, always wanting to stand out from the pack, never really wanted to be in the real world. Sorcha says, “I always wanted to be in dresses.” Inspired by her mom’s motto, “If you are feeling down, get dressed up,” surely borrowing her mothers magic to create her collections. Sorcha’s latest FW12 collection, styled by Anna Trevelyan, and photographed by Saga Sig, was utterly impressive. Sorcha’s love for religious memorabilia are what makes her collection that much more astonishing.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2012

Christopher Bailey’s homage to crochet, beading, braiding, and weaving this season happened to be one of the most delightful collections I’ve seen thus far. The artisan feel behind Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2012 collection made for some crafty accessories, handbags, and woven details. Lean pencil skirts with a hint of shimmer, ruched dresses with fantastic patterns, and a color pallet fit for a warm welcome into Spring. The saturated pigments of mustard, plum, blue, and teal are a sort that would usually be expected for Fall, oddly enough the darker selection is exactly what I love about this collection. Adored pieces were that of Burberry Prorsum’s cropped trench coat, those fantastic ruched skirts, and my very favorite were the platform open-toe boots.

Yigal Azrouël Men’s Spring 2012

Yigal Azrouël’s Men’s Spring 2012 collection sold me with his purple work-wear boots. I imagine a man wearing this sort of modern street wear would invest in a pair of amazingly bold boots as such. The New York-based designer’s collection goes on to deliver textured knits, leather accents on denim jackets, slim shorts, matchels (man satchels) and a fantastic washed grey leather jacket. Pops of color peeked out from hues of black, navy, and then there was red. Azrouël’s knit-wear was consistent with Alexander Wang in my opinion. I mean, right? Those sweatpants are a total Wang banger. I loved them nonetheless. I was also really into the suit separates of tailored blazers and shorts combo. Azrouël’s chinos and one piece completed the collection of his traditionally clean aesthetic.

Le City Kitty for Guess & Refinery29

One fine afternoon in the city of New York I went for a stroll in Washington Square Park with my friends from Refinery29. Clad in Guess, rocker-glam gear from head to-toe, we shot a stop motion video all around Greenwich Village. The stop motion film with me as The Quick Change Artist, where I robed and disrobed in the park, stripping and tossing my clothes on the ground. Fun stuff right? What was more exciting was the Occupy Wall Street rally that created a stir of NYU students and made it challenging to shoot our film. Layers upon layers of awesome Guess clothes, included a tank that read Don’t Mess With Me, a Burnout Tee with a sequin front pocket, and a super comfy Classic Pullover with cut-outs. All in all, the video turned out rad and was a blast to shoot. Check out what Refinery29 had to…
