SUGOI!



Wandering on e-bay late at night can be full of surprises, good or bad, or exciting like winning a designer archive  or a limited edition piece after a well-played bargain. That's how we had the chance to get after long hours and days of reseach, the Margiela X H&M biker jacket at a lower price. That's also how we came across Dot.Comme, looking for vintage Comme Des Garçons pieces. SUGOI, the japanese word for "amazing" is the appropriate word to qualify this australian based online vintage boutique, stocking the most exciting contemporary designers of all times such as Comme Des Garçons, Issey Miyake, Walter Van Beirendonck, Yohji Yamamoto or  Stephen Jones. All their pieces are timeless, unique and well-kept and actually all must-haves like all the CDG's stock (not really a surprise since we are CDG worshippers), especially the plaid pieces (the jackets and pants) and the lip and tongue suit from the 2006 Spring/Summer collection. Dot.Comme is part of our daily online wandering, certainly it is our favourite website for vintage clothes, and we warmly recommend it to you.

HERO OF THE WEEK: SKY FERREIRA



A few weeks ago, when we went to the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris, watching Sky Ferreira live was one of our biggest expectations. Perhaps because she is a scandalous girl who is not afraid of coming too close to the sun and burning her wings. Perhaps because she is a new kind of It Girl, a model (she walked the latest Marc Jacobs show and is the new face of Maison Kitsuné), a muse and perfectly in this grunge revival initiated by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent Paris. And also perhaps for her music, not revolutionary but good enough, dirty enough, cool enough to be in our headphones in a loop for a month now. And Sky the Fallen Angel is back today with a new video for Night Time, My Time, the song that opened her set during Pitchfork. In this dark video, directed by Grant Singer & Michael Stine, she plays different kinds of creatures of the night and her voice losing itself in an long and powerful echo will still haunt us for several weeks.




Sky Ferreira's album also called Night Time, My Time is already out so don't waste any minute, listen to it!

KYE! KYE! KYE!



"My initial design concept came from a dream that I had one day last year where i was squeezed by a giant King Kong hand. Overall, I thought this would be a lot of fun." Kathleen Kye, a London based Korean born designer, graduated from Central Saint Martins, producing her collection in Korea, establishing the etho of her label (KyeKyeKye) in one word: fun. In other words, her design questions man and woman representation of beauty by exploring new shapes and attitudes, breaking the conventional wardrobe. Finding new ideas to explore masculinity, adding non boring elements, that is what KK has been looking forward since her debut F/W2011 collection, developing menswear only and later, adding womenswear look in her runway. Diversity is at the core of KK's inspiration towards her presentations. Obviously subculture obsesses her, from sportswear to rebel guerilla look, from street graffiti to punk aesthetic, or from hip-hop to tattoos, as well as gold lamé disco colour being a kind of signature. About her F/W2011 collection she said: "I displayed oversized wadded sleeves and hoods, extraordinary shape trousers with zip pocket details and puffed jumper and parka with exaggerated silhouettes of manliness." She always plays with masculinity opposing an eccentric gold lamé sporty outfit to a rebel guerilla silhouette, composed of arabic inspired black and white printed scarf shirt and shorts accessorized with glitter sandals in her S/S2012 runways. This collection presented another pattern she introduced in her F/W2011, displaying surrealist hand-shape pockets on a shirt or for a provoking effect, 3D hands standing on a sleeveless white vest. Uncompromising and unique like her F/W2012 collection mixing plaid long shirt with gold fringe details and bondage laced up large pants, challenging conventional beauty. Daring and sexy may sound awkward to qualify KK's work, but it is, if we consider her S/S13 collection in which she has created trompe l'oeil tattoos tee-shirts and leggings. Her latest S/S14 collection features KK's signatures, updating her guerilla rebel attitude with Hip-Hop street subculture. What you could expect is cap and sweater featuring her eponymous logo, gold lamé sporty outfit, skull and pistols pattern displayed on a shirt and on the back of a sleeveless biker jacket and a new print made of gold sticking plaster on a lamé and metallic vest and its matching large shorts. KK's last collection is like a sequel of her Youth Unemployment F/W 2013, but with a less is more aesthetic, leaving behind the D.I.Y.graffiti and the gold confetti print. Both F/W2013 and S/S14 leave us speechless, and the only word that we can add is: "Kye!Kye!Kye!"
