ketchup and mayonnaise

I don't know exactly why an announcement that a major fashion house will downscale its fashion show due to pregnancy of the head designer feels like an important thing for all women. It is a clever strategy of LVMH that knows its clients are exactly this kind of power women that must have it all, which nowadays means babies and careers, ketchup and mayonnaise, yoga certificate and a C bag.

Phoebe Philo je noseča, tretjič. Ko je šla na porodniško prvič, je kmalu zatem zapustila Chloé, češ da bo full-time mama, naštepala še enega malčka, potem pa šokirala s Céline. Kako bo modni svet pretresla po svoji naslednji porodniški? Vse te C ženske iz mesa in krvi oblek in modnih dodatkov me spomnijo na knjigo, ki mi jo M* moli pod nos. Če malo priredim, kaj piše na platnici (nisem še prišla dlje od platnice), precej dobro ujame philozofijo: Postmoderna feministka "hoče vse", biti manekenka in mati in uspešna ženska v tržnem gospodarstvu, kečap in majonezo, luksuz in mikavno askezo, biti antikomercialna in komercialno zaželena, anticiklično trendsetterska in jahajoča na vsakem modnem sedlu.

breaking in

via COS
Flatforms are just a fancier name for creepers and I do appreciate what they do to a girl's silhouette or to an ordinary shoe for that matter. Also they should be comfortable enough for walking around the city all day and, why not, all night long. LP shoes. Finally I gave in and bought this COS version, now I have to make them butter-soft before going to London fashion week as I'm planning to wear them with everything, basically. But don't tell that to my double blister.

Moj čevljar je znova globoko zavzdihnil, ko jih je zagledal, baje je vse narobe z njimi; narejene so bile na kopitu za škornje (zato so se mi ves čas sezuvale), poleg tega pa so preveč ravne in zato z njimi hodim kot v pancerjih, kar moti bolj njega kot mene, I like that robot walk. Za pomlad-poletje si že ogledujem tole Carven espadrilasto različico, ki bo zagotovo prijaznejša do mojih nožic, čeprav bi Mr. Vodeb najbrž spet kaj pripomnil. Nihče ni popoln, kaj šele par čevljev.

me, again

photos by Maja Slavec
Last week I had an interview for a magazine and these are the photos that give my hair and power coat all the glitz they deserve (and I look super tall).

O tem, s čim si plačujem račune, s kom sem strašno kul in zakaj ne pogrešam Televizije. V novi številki Obrazov.

comfort zone


by DCMU and fixinchevys 
I can't figure out what is it with me and glasses. They are a beautiful vintage Giorgio Armani pair and yet when wearing them I don't feel like myself. It is similar to the Borsalino hats in the Max & Co. shop. I adore them in theory and I would love to be the woman with the hat. Just imagine somebody describing you as "oh, that woman with a hat", but I just don't have what it takes. On the other hand, I can wear the scuba top by COS all the time, without special preparations.

Čez mesec dni bom po sezoni ali dveh abstinence spet tekala po tednu mode. Tokrat londonskem. Obešalniki se že tresejo, saj vedo, da jih bom dajala v nič in da bodo nekaj dni pred odhodom iz mojih ust slišali marsikaj. V vsej svoji modni lenobi špricam tudi razprodaje, ker, hej, saj grem vendar v London, kjer bo mrgolelo pižamastih in pastelnih SS pregreh. A o tem kasneje, zdaj moram piar hišam razposlati prošnje za vabila.
