The Celine Effect

celine has been setting the bar for sometime now. The foulard / paisley comeback + pajama dressing stems from a few memorable celine pieces that we all know and love.

weather its the full monte floral suity get up or just the black grounded floral moto jacket, these are some serious editorial favorites. I generally get extremely irritated when bogged down with spread after spread of the same stuff (we all remember the pages and pages of LV s&m kink of doily peter pan colors over molded sweater and leather waist-sinching belts, the oddles and oodles of givenchy pit bull and cougar printed jackets and skirts...you know; angry pastey model stands in junk yard amidst tv's she has just torched, flames to go with her unnaturally orange dye job. you know the one).

BUT, I think when magazines decide to dismiss the idea of attempting originality and stick to shooting the big items of the season its a really good chance to weed out the bad stylists from the good. In this post i've selected a bit of both just so we can get a feel for the contrast.

can you guess which ones i hate?

Can't get enough of these images. They make me want to quit my job, sell my bed and buy a few more cameras. They also make me want to do an entire series of the back of people's heads.

Dion Agius, surfer by trade who happens to have some cameras laying around, as he puts it. Damn. is how i put it. I can't describe the resentment i have towards photographers who's parents put them through school and gave them all the money they needed to buy the best gear.

I can't describe how much respect i have for someone who figures it out on their own.
right on dion.

I like boy stuff : Archy Marshall

Apparently I'm a little late on the game with this dude, as its seems the coolest cool kids where talking about him this time last year.

King Krule (formerly Zoo Kid) is the coolest of cool. awkwardly lovable, brash, with a hazy sound thats keeping me pressing repeat like i haven't since The Smiths entered my young life. His deceptively simple and raw music has a knowing sensibility that when coupled with his baby face makes for a winning combination.

Check the tunes here but first watch this stunning video for "Out Getting Ribs" (the kids got good taste, yeah, in food and art).

picture it: Archy and Hedi Slimane to do british teen heart throbe in hollywood. if it hasn't already happened. maybe i'll set it up. Archy should be modeling anyway.
