I <3 Lykke Li for her beautiful music & gorgeous style

December 8, 2010 § Leave a comment

Lyyke Li considers as a super duper cool fashion icon and a very awesome and talented singer. I believe that Swedes know how to dress well and Swedes know how to make good music. Lykke Li is a Swedish artist who perfectly combines music and fashion.

It’s no wonder that Lykke Li won the ELLE award for best-dressed Swedish woman in 2008.

She always looks very unique without being overdressed. I find her clothes perfectly reflect her music. Romantic but not tacky, Swedish but not Svensson and cute but not girly.

Characteristic for Lykke Li’s style is the hair bun. Even if she doesn’t wear it that often anymore I still see a lot of girls and even some guys with the hair style.

Lykke Li is a fantastic artist but her attitudes and comments are sometimes pretty annoying. When she won the ELLE award for instance she told the magazine, ‘It felt weird that I won the award. I have found clothes in trashcans my whole life’.

She was dressed in Lagerfeld, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Ann-Sofie Back and Acne when she commented on her prize. Is it so uncool to care about style and buy expensive clothes? Even if it is, I think such a comment is even more ridiculous.

These are all sayings by Lykke Li herself from an interview by Charlotte Philby, which indicates her personal style and how to look like her. (Saturday, 23 August 2008)

I don’t like mixing colours, it confuses me. If I have the choice, I’ll always go for black, white or grey, but not all at the same time. I like having a simple look. If I do experiment, I’d rather work more with shapes than with colours. When I was a kid, my mum dressed me in the craziest things: hippie, psychedelic shorts, flower prints from India, all sorts of madness. But now I can choose!

If I do wear heels, I like stripper shoes. But I’ll never wear them with a tight top, only baggy. I don’t do “inbetweenie” heels; they’re either tiny or huge. When I wear heels, I always end up taking them off and walking home barefoot. These boots are by Acne; they were £250. They’re easy to walk in, and they give a good shape to your leg.

My look is quite androgynous. This is my mum’s jacket from the Eighties, which is more like a shirt. I like that it’s loose and casual, quite masculine, but then it’s made with this very feminine silk fabric. And it’s black, which helps. My mum got it in New York. I found a box of her old silk shirts and stole them all.

Bare legs aren’t suitable unless you’re really tall, or it’s really hot outside. I’m always cold. Sometimes I wear trousers, but they have to be high-waisted and loose and black. I like Seventies things. This black jumpsuit was a present from the designers at Minimarket; I chose it because it’s very casual but also very cool. It would have cost about £80.

I’ve collected jewellery from all over the world. I buy a silver chain in every city I visit. The kazoo on a silk chain I made myself. I also like having lots of rings: these are from India, Morocco and New York. I never wear gold – I’m not the Russian type – except for one necklace with my name printed on it, which I got in Brooklyn.

Casual Men

I think that  if guys wears shorts with good tops, they can create a very cool and awesome look. These four pictures can prove that I am right. The first two looks are in grey and beige, which are very simple but still pretty cool to me. I’m so bored of seeing guys wear jeans all the time. They should play more on their outfits to create something new to wear. The third look from Commes des Garcons is absoultely cool. The print is awesome  and the style is very pleased to my eyes. I really like this third look very much. It is all in darker tone, just simply dark blue/purple and black. The final one is interesting as well, with orange shirt and hat, to make the look more unique. I think guys should wear more shorts, not just jeans and simple tops like t-shirts. I think it is important to them to mix and match different styles to create their own looks and styles.

I love these two classic, simple nd basic look from Hermes so very mucho grande. They look so clean and fresh. Nowadays, guys wear a lot of darker tones, such as black and grey, they should wear more beige color like pants and shirts, which can make them look more smart and clean. The pants are not too skinny and look very comfprtable. To make the looks more cool, adding some ties or jackets would not hurt and Tod’s kid of shoes are super cool, too. I would like to see more guys wearing this style.

Dressup men

Who said that wearing formal clothes are boring. Take a closer look at these 3 styles of fashion. The first look might be a bit too normal, however with the shiny material the designer used makes this look more interesting. Plus with the fold-up pants and the matching of white shirt and sneaker encourage the final look to be more unique and fun for guys . The second one is quite interesting as well with the printed t-shirt worn over shiny suits and pants. It is a very nice dress-up style for men. he third one is a very formal one with nothing very outstanding but I still like this look very much since the fabric is unique. The style of the suit can hardly be seen on teenagers.

Kris van Asche, Viktor & Rolf, Dries van Noten

These two styles are very interesting and fun. I really love these two particular look very much. I think men should play lot more on patterns and colors.  The second one is more like a teddy boy look with light blue suits, which is very adorable. The first look will be appropriate for punk or street people to wear for formal events.

Junya Watanabe & Viktor & Rolf

One  feature I can observe in this look is a cowboy  hat, which can seriously add more fun on these looks. It consists of polka dot pattern, which I love it and I even love it more with the necklace and a matching polka dot vest. This is one of my ideal dress-up style for men. Guys should not be afraid to wear some girly patterns or prints becuase they are all so adorable and fancy.

Casual

This is from the Sonia Rykiel spring 2010 collection, picture number 5.  I think it is such a adorable casual look. The short jumpsuit in shiny red that gives a little bit of boyish look and the black kind of cowbot hat with fringe decoration are very pretty. To complete this look, the orang woodstock shoes are necessary. I think this look is important in the sense that you should never be afraid to play with colours and designs since some different things when throw in together can make a more interesting look.

I also like this look very much. Even though it is a bit messy but it is still very cute in ints way. She chose only pastel colours for her clothing and contrast the look with black stocking and pretty organe ankle wood boots. Her coat is much like a bath rope. This look is important because the wearer is not afraid to be stand out, even though her outer wear is much like a bath rope.

I love this look. The wearer is also very cute. Her look is very adorable. She wore light brown fur vest over the light grey  jacket. She also wore a white short lace dress underneath the jacket. She also wore white stocking and grey boots to complete her look. Her outfit makes her look so fabulously stylish, without any effort. This outfit shows me that girly piece can still be macted with more of a tomboy piece like her boot.

This outfit is abosolutely such a girly cutie. Her beige oversize suit and pleated skrit are very pretty and mactching. She added a little somthing on her suit, which made it more prettier. She contrasted the beige with black ankle leather boots, black leater gloves, rayban-shaped glasses, black stocking, as well as her black/white see-through polkadot shirt. The see-through shirt gives a little sexiness into her outfit. The hat she wore even made her outfit more perfect and adorable. Plus, her beige clutch with decoration of fluffy flowers around it is just too chic. It is fun to mix and match different things.

This look is more like a simple and boyish one but still it is very adorable and very chic to me. The printed kind of see-through shirt in grey and white is very nice. It really goes well with the navy blue 3/4pants. Her red tiny belt encoraged her casual look. With a bit of messy golden hair and her beige ankle wedges boot really makes she looks so trendy. Who said you can not wear high heel with this boyish look? Mix and mactch is an important thing.

This is another one of my fovourite look. This is more like a biker chic look. What I love most about this outfit is the leopard pattern. Her dark brown leopard biker jacket is very up-to-date and her orange brown leopard ankle boot is just too chihc that I also want to have one. Her outfit  looks more  like a biker but still gives a sense of a trendy playful wmen because of her greeny flower short and tight dress, with the black stocking that can gives both the warmth and finishing awesome look. This outfit is important in a way that no one should be afraid to express your style out although it is not like other people. Play with prints and patterns to create more unique and chic look.

Dress-up

November 8, 2010 § Leave a comment

Theses Mcqueen dresses are magnificient. They are perfect, unique and it so inspiring. They are more like a futuristic look like from outer space. I love them. I would love to buy one of the design and I would love to wear it. The shoes are beautifully gorgeous. The second look is super unique with two types of sleeves in one dress, short and long sleeves in different colours. The shape of the third dress is very interesting and gorgeous as well. The first two pictures are more like snake patterns. While the third one is more like what would futuristic queen would wear, golden shiny fabric and the shawl that sticks on the dress. The designer is so much fun and he loves to experience new  style, which is very important to the fashion world. People should be more creeative and have vision for something new.

Alexander Mcqueen, Spring 2010 (4, 17, 19 out of 46)

I am in love with this white lovely dress from Celine, just like love at first sight. It is so pretty, so elegant, and unique in its way. The sleeve all covers in whie fluffy fur. The shape and sillohuette are perfect. The style can not be denial. Matching it with red high heels and black stocking, this is just too perfect. I would love to wear one. It is nice to be standout once in a while, especially in this pretty cocktail dress.

Celine Prefall 2010 (14, 15 out of 24)

This fire peplum red dress is perfect. It is so elegant and luxury. The decoration on the dress is unsual but cute. The silloutthe and shape of the dress is perfectly fit. I like the way that this dress is unlike other dress.

Lanvin Spring 20010 (6 out of 53)

Something simple yet elegant always gives a perfect upshot. This is just so femenine and stunning. The fabric is absoutely gorgeous, which gives a feeling of softness and some pretty movement to this outfit.

Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture (17 out of 45)

This outfit, eventhough is quite messy but I just adore it so much. I love the overall look so much. The line and shape of the outfit is very unique. The print is very interesting. People should play more on prints and colors.

Vivienne Westwood Spring 2010 (15 out of 54)

It is important as a fashion designer to find hir or her muse and inspiration and I believe this Dior dress is such a suitable example.  The line of the dress is absolutely stunning. The top is just like a flower with some red fur decoration. The designer contrasts it with the light blue pleated skirt and the purple cuff . The yellow ribbon as a belt gives a very interesting outcome to this dress. The shoe doesn’t want to play a big secne, so the plastic clear high heel is just right.

Malcolm McLaren as a creator of Punk Fashion in 1970’s

November 4, 2010 § Leave a comment

– In, 1971,   Malcolm with his girlfriend, Vivienne Westwood opened a punk clothing shop in London that was called “Let it rock” on King road. It was renamed many time from “Too Fast Too Live Too Young To Die” to “Sex” to “Seditionaries”and to World’s End”

– New York Dolls band

– Sex Pistols

– Hip Hop to UK

– Singer

– Innovator

– Promoter

 

His Quotes:

Mr. McLaren spent much of the last 30 years trying to explain punk. “I never thought the Sex Pistols would be any good,” he told The Times of London last year. “But it didn’t matter if they were bad.”

In a 1997 article for The New Yorker, Mr. McLaren recalled, “We set out to make an environment where we could truthfully run wild.” On most days the shop did not open until the evening and closed within a few hours. The goal, Mr. McLaren wrote, “was to sell nothing at all.”
