LFW - And just like that, it's over!



So maybe because im not one of those photograpers I've met this LFW like the amazing Tommy Ton (jakandjil.com) but this time I don't have many pictures to show you guys. One of the main reasons might probably be that this time I decided to really enjoy the shows I get to see and not worry about snapping everysingle outfit I think would look extremelly good on Gala who, for those who still don't know, is in a whole page in Vogue this month. I did blog life to facebook from my blackberry in some of the shows tho, felt a bit like gossip boy.
It was all about enjoying those little walks between shows with my colourful crowd and little meals in random coffee shops. And like my friend Margot says I did have a good time, it was amazing, you weren't here, looser.



Right in the middle of fashion week I met Charlotte Olympia who is not only beautiful and polite, she is a very tallented shoe designer who, with Nikolas Kirkwood, are the hottest thing in town. If I could afford them my sister would already have those ostrich leather sky-high platform heels in E-V-E-R-Y-single colour.
So yeah, I was saying, this week is been fashion week but in another level, celebrating with Daisy Lowe and Co her Birthday somewhere in north London, enjoying that O.M.G cake, meeting great new people and, of course, networking.






And talking about A/W 09-10 collections I was really impressed with Richard Nicoll, I really liked his sexy cream coloured collection with corset-like details; and maybe because Katie Grand was styling it so it had an extra magic to it I loved TopShop Unique. Also Mario Schwab never disappoints me, his breaking-apart-to-release-a-sparkly-body dresses were very interesting and inspiring. However the winner for me is, of course, Giles Deacon and his amazing details on dresses, shapes, textures, the tattos on his models, all very interesting and yet very Giles. To know more about shows go on style.com and have a look at what Tim Blanks have to say (apart from that –your hair gets bigger and bigger!) or click HERE to go to my YouTube site to check out all the catwalk videos.




Hey, thanks everybody for such an amazing week. More, in Paris, soon.

Quizas porque no soy uno de esos increibles fotografos como los que he conocido esta semana, uno de ellos, Tommy Ton (Jakandjil.com) pero esta vez no tengo muchas fotos que colgar. Una de las principales razones es que esta vez decidi dsifrutar los defiles de verdad sin preocuparme de la camara ni de sacar fotos a todos los modelitos que le quedarian de miedo a Ga la cual, para aquellos que todavia no lo sepais, esta en un pagina enterita este mes en Vogue. Lo que si hice fue subir en directo fotos desde mi blackberry a facebook, me senti un poco como gossip-boy.

Lo major de todo fue disfrutar esos paseos entre shows con mis coloridos amigos y esas meriendas esporadicas. Como bien dice mi amiga Margot me lo pase genial, genial y vosotros, pardillos, no estabais aqui.
Y justo en mitad de fashion week conoci a Charlotte Olympia, que no solo es guapisima y super educada, sino que tambien tiene mucho talento para disenar zapatos y junto a Nikolas Kirkwood, forman la pareja ma hot de Londres. Si tuviera suficiente pasta mi hermana ya tendria esos tazonazos de rascacielo piel de avestruz en todos los colores.
Asi que, como iba diciendo, esta semana ha sido de la moda pero a mucho mas nivel que solo desfiles, celebrando el cumpleanos de Daisy Lowe en alguna parte perdidos por el norte de Londres, disfrutando esa tarta tan O.D.M (oh dios mio), conociendo a gente genial, y of course, haciendo contactos.



Hablando de colecciones O/I 09-10 me impresiono bastante Richard Nicoll, me gusto mucho su coleccion tan sexy en colores crema y con detalles de corseteria y lenceria en sus prendas; Tambien quizas por el factor Katie Grand, que hacia de estilista, TopShop Unique no estuvo nada mal. Mario Schwab nunca me decepciona, sus vestidos esculpturales que se rompian para dejar ver un cuerpo brillante, como cristalizado a la mujer, haciendola incluso mas especial, fueron muy inspiradores. Sinembargo, el ganador para mi es, claramente, Giles y sus inteligentes detalles en los vestidos con su punto punk, siluetas, texturas, los tatuajes en las modelos, todo muy interesante y todo tan Giles. Para saber mas visitad Style.com y echadle un vistazo a lo que Tim Blanks tiene que decir (a parte de que -tu pelo esta cada vez mas grande!) o click AQUI para ver los videos de los otros desfiles.

Hey, muchas gracias a todos por una semana tan fantastica. Mas, pronto, en Paris.

Elle Awards After Party





Why go to an awards ceremony if you are not, at least, nominated to get one? Thats what we thought last night when we only turned up for the after-party. You know, at least I didn't fall down the stairs like Sienna Miller did, I'm sure it was the most stylish fall of the year tho, that's for sure.
And one of the best things of last night's party was not only enjoy it with friends, very well dressed friends, but also, being introduced to Alice Dellal, who I have to say, I love. She even striked one of her hot posses for me. There!




-------

Por que ir a una entrega de premios si, al menos, no estas nominado? Eso es lo que pensamos mis a migos y yo cuando fuimos directamente a la fiesta de despues. Sabes, al menos no me caí por las escaleras como Sienna Miller, la caída más estilosa del año seguro.
Y uno de los mejores momentos de la noche fue conocer a Alice Dellal, que me encanta, e incluso me dedicó uno de sus poses. alah!

The Lipstick-Lesbian Issue


February is one of the best months to get all the fashion magazines you like, with all the looks you should get (yeah whatever, like I have ten grand/month to get the twenty must haves of the season, you are probably thinking, all the advice from editors I've never heard about and yeah, the new spring-sumer add campaigns with all the hot models and great photographers like Mert & Marcus, Nick Knight, Meisel... So thats me, having a look through Harpers Bazaar and what do I find between the hottest shoes I've ever seen (I'm talking about Louis Vuitton ones, of course, in wich campaign Madonna shows how flexible her legs are) and the new bag Sofia Coppola has designed (for Louis Vuitton too)? Well I realize all the models have gone gay!

From the Chloe girls (above), walking around Paris (I'm guessing) with their perfect ironed colour-matching boyish outfits to the Longchamp add where Shasha Pivovarova and Kate Moss (below) share not just a hot red lipstick but a sweet hug too. Every single campaign image tells a lesbic story, I mean even the Missoni girls (not looking very happy but then, we all argue, don't we?) have gone on holiday together.




And talking about fights, how about the most glamourous one for Dsquared2 between Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell? or wait, maybe they are just playing around. The Prada campaign is a bit more forward, there is this girl-seeks-girl yah, but she can't decide yah, so she's got one hand in one woman's shoulder like -come here, we are gonna have fun us three, and the other hand feeling the other woman's leg, wow!




Although Lavin girl is all alone she is not less into women, she's so hot she's making out with herself (who hasn't ever don't that... lets say when you are 15 and bored in your room?) Anyway, I think she is my favourite.

And when I was all happy because all the hot women around London would follow the example and become Lipstick Lesbians with their killer Nicolas Kirkwood shoes, Balenciaga structured trousers and oversize Margiela jackets I found Aquascutum shitty campaign trying to sabotage this post where a docen of boring-looking straight couples are kissing (well I think there is at least one gay lad or he's thinking about it).


Let the sexy girls play!

Febrero es uno de los mejores meses para comprarse todas las revistas de moda, con los looks que tienes que adquirir (si claro, como que tengo diez-mil euros/mes para comprarme los veinte must haves de la temporada, consejos de editores de moda de los cuales nunca he oido hablar y si, las nuevas campañas de primavera-verano repletas de modelazos y grandes fotografos como Mert & Marcus, Nick Knight, Meisel... Asi que ahí estoy yo, echandole un vistazo a Harpers Bazaar y qué es lo que me encuentro entre los zapatos mas increibles que he visto (estoy hablando de los de Louis Vuitton, claro, en cuya campaña Madonna nos muestra como de flexibles son sus piernas) y el nuevo bolso que ha diseñado Sofia Coppola? (para Vuitton también) Pues me doy cuenta de que todas las modelos se han vuelto gay!

Desde las chicas-Chloe, paseando por Paris con sus perfectos y planchados conjuntos coordinados no sólo en color sino en modelito masculino, hasta el anuncio de Longchamp donde Sasha Pivovarova y Kate Moss comparten no sólo un pintalabios rojo sino también un abrazo de los tiernos. Cada campana cuenta una historia lésbica, icluso las chicas-Missoni (que no parecen muy contentas que digamos) se han ido juntas de vacaciones!

Y hablando de peleas, que os parece la mas glamurosa en Dsquared2, de la mano de Linda Evangelista y Naomi Campbell? Bueno, igual simplemente estan haciendo manitas. La campaña de Prada no se queda atras, con esta chica-busca-chica yaaaahhh, pero no se decide yaaaahhh, asi que tiene una mano en el hombro de una chica en plan -ven aquí, que lo vamos a pasar bien las tres, y la otra mano en el muslo, wow!

Aunque la chica Lanvin esta toda sola no deja estar interesada en las mujeres, está tan buena que se besa a si misma (quien no ha hecho eso... digamos cuando tienes 15 años y estas aburrido en tu habitacion?) Que más da, creo que ella es mi favorita.

Y cuando ya estaba todo feliz pensando que todas las buenorras en Londres iban a seguir el ejemplo con sus taconazos de Nikolas Kirkwood, pantalones estructurados de Balenciaga y chaquetas Margiela me encuentro con la mierda de anuncio de Aquascutum intentando sabotearme con una docena de pringaos hetero besandose (bueno 11 parejas, porque un pavo es gay, o se lo esta pensando).

Dejaz que las chicas juegen!
