Long Live McQueen

Yesterday was the Alexander McQueen press day, which for those who aren't in the industry, is when press people come in and get to see (and touch) the collection showed at the last fashion week, A/W 10-11 in this case, and the lovely PRs explain you a bit through it.
Now I know this is not the kind of thing I blog about and that the pictures taken with blackberrys aren't the best to look at but this visit to the McQueen HQ was such a fucking lesson of how to do things properly, how to rock a collection, and then, these pictures are better than nothing, right?
I got quite sad thinking that Lee wouldn't be around the studio but I totally felt him in every single piece and,
I'm sure, whoever takes over, will do a great job.

Impecable patterns

This leather jacket had crocodile, snake and ostrich leather on it,
kind of super amazing

Some of the womenswear piece that will totally make into my wardrove,
just like a few of the leggings, this winter I'm gonna be so warm

Also the accessories blowed my mind:

Starting with the -already house signature- knuckle duster bags

Some rings...

this one is my favourite, it's sooooo gonna be mine...
(just so you people know my birthday is 28th of June)

And amazing shoes:

Like, honestly women, can you stop wearing flats?
Cause they're fucking boring and these shoes have angels heels!
It's kind of strange how they look like the ones in cemeteries right?

Then, on my way out, when I thought it couldnt get any better,
I spotted the very same outfit Kate Moss wore at the Fashion For Relief show

Just one more thing to say...

Natalia 4ever

This was a very funny moment at some dinner party in Paris last Fashion Week. Everyone was there, and my brain couldn't believe my eyes when they saw Natalia Vodianova standing next to me. I got talking to her and I have to say she is one of the nicest people i met this year so far. I was explaining her how I got her name in my arm: My sister Natalia, who even though she's not a model she is a role model for me, was the one who showed me in a magazine, back in the 90's who Kate Moss was and convinced my parents to allow me to move to London to try and make it into the best fashion university in the world. Those were happy but difficult days for me, when people likeAlexander McQueen and John Galliano were big new heroes for me, when every single magazine page with anything fashion related would be a treasure for me and when trying to make understand to a "quite classic" family that I didn't want to be yet another orthodontist was a daily sport.
Then, in the middle of the conversation seems like Olivier Zahm, from Purple Magazine, must have noticed what we were talking about and so he took this picture, that made it to his blog and now, to mine.

So, as I was saying, I got 'Natalia' tattooed when I was told I got in Saint Martins because, in a way, I got in thanks my sister, who has always supported me, no matter what I do, say or wear, she's always there.

I love you, Natalia-s

Éste fue uno de los momentos más graciosos de una cena a la que fuí la pasada semana de la moda en Paris. Todo el mundo estaba allí y mi cerebro no creía a mis ojos cuando divisaron a Natalia Vodianova al lado mio. Me puse a hablar con ella y tengo que decir que es una de las personas mas simpáticas que he conocido en lo que llevamos de año, le contaba como es que tenía su nombre en mi brazo: Mi hermana Natalia quien, aunque no es modelo sí que es un modelo a seguir para mi, fue la que, allá por los noventa, me enseñó en una revista quien era Kate Moss y convenció a mis padres para mudarme a Londres e intentar entrar en la mejor escuela de moda del mundo. Aquellos eran tiempos felices pero dificiles para mi, cuando Alexander McQueen y John Galliano eran mis nuevos heroes, cuando yo guardaba como un tesoro cada pagína que tuviera que ver con el mundo de la moda y cuando hacer entender a una familia "bastante clásica" que no quería ser otro ortodoncista era un deporte diario.

En mitad de la conversación, a Olivier Zahm, de la revista Purple, le debió de hacer gracia de lo que estabamos hablando y sacó esta foto, que luego acabó en su página y que ahora, yo cuelgo en la mia.

Como estaba contando, me tatué 'Natalia' en mi brazo cuando me dijeron que había entrado en Saint Martins porque, de algun modo, conseguí esa plaza gracias a mi hermana, quien me ha apoyado siempre, haga lo que haga, diga lo que diga o me ponga lo que me ponga, ella siempre esta ahí.

Os quiero Natalia-s

Take me with you

Don't ask me cause I dont know yet.
I don't know what's going on, I just know there are shit loads of things coming, and I just can't fucking wait.
All these projects and ideas, that's why I'm going mental.

I can feel it inside, and I guess you can see it in my eyes.

Take me with you

No me preguntes porque no lo se ni yo.
No sé que pasa, tan solo se que hay un monton de cosas por venir, y tengo muchas ganas de que lleguen.
Todos estos proyectos e ideas, por eso me estoy volviendo loco.

Lo puedo sentir dentro, y supongo que tu lo puedes ver en mis ojos.

Llévame contigo

It was last february, during Madrid Fashion Week that I got to meet with Susana, an energetic and enthusiastic girl with a beautiful smile and an overflowing sympathy, as well as one of the creators of the label just4fun.

I told her my current obsession with leggings and how I wished more boys would wear them on the streets...
She explained me about Just4fun, turns out, its not just another fashion label, they wanted to create a very exclusive product of limited editions but, at the same time, without loosing that homy feeling (all made in Barcelona in little workshops) and also involving associations of social assistance so definitely, just4fun has a soul...
The only thing they asked me when I got the leggins? Have fun with them, I sure did!

Visit the just4fun website or click here to buy this very same pair!

Fue en febrero, durante la semana de la moda de Madrid, que conocí a Susana, una chica energética y entusiasta, con una bonita sonrisa y una simpatía desbordante ademas de ser una de las creadoras de la marca de leggings y bodies just4fun (solo-x-diversion).

Le comenté mi obsesión por los leggings y lo mucho que me gustaría que más chicos se animasen a ponerselos...
Susana me explicó un poco sobre Just4fun y resulta que no es otra marca de moda más, querían crear un producto exclusivo, de ediciones limitadas pero, al mismo tiempo, manteniendo esa sesación artesana (todo se hace en pequeños talleres en Barcelona) y, además, participan con asociaciones de asistencia social, así que, definitivamente just4fun tiene alma...
Lo único que me pidieron que hiciera con los leggings? Divertirme, y vaya si lo hice...

Visita la página web Just4fun o haz click aquí para comprar directamente este mismo par de leggings!

I feel what I listen to (7)

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World
Mad world
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World
Mad World
Enlarging your world
Mad World.

My Tony (A)Ward

He's always been one of my answers (along with Joe Dallesandro and James Dean) whenever someone ask me the classic stupid question: -who's your idol? Then is when the following images (and the Hustler White movie) skip through my mind and my lips start to move to pronounce the words: Tony Ward

El siempre ha sido una de mis respuestas (junto a Joe Dallesandro y James Dean) cuando alguien me hace la clasica estupida pregunta: -quien es tu idolo? Y entonces es cuando las siguientes imagenes (y la pelicula Hustler White) pasan por mi mente y mis labios se empiezan a mover para pronunciar dos palabras: Tony Ward

Pictures courtesy of

So you can imagine how I felt when Benjamin Lamberty, who was taking Tony's picture a few weeks ago, emailed me this picture. I guess platonic love (or sex) do get serious sometimes. From now on I guess this will be the picture in my head whenever they ask the magic question.
Thanks Tony, Thanks Ben!

Asi que os podeis imaginar como me senti cuando Ben Lamberty, que estaba en una sesion de fotos con Tony hace unas semanas, me envio esta foto. Supongo que el amor (o el sexo) platonico se podria volver serio. A partir de ahora esta es la imagen que me vendra a la cabeza cuando me hagan la pregunta magica.

oh yeah,
Love you too
