WOMEN ARE WEAPONS

4 Mar

The amazingly talented, and brilliant Dani Read, designer of FYI LINGERIE, presented her A/W 13 Collection titled, Isis, embodying Cleopatra who ruled by both intelligence and seduction.FSM got the awesome opportunity to make a few chain body harnesses to accessorize the show.

Dani’s trademark “Women are Weapons” is evident in her designs and gives her the cutting edge in the lingerie market. I mean, who turns love handles into Love Handles as an all access leather harness belt? FYI does!!! And is one of the few reasons why we love Dani’s vision!

Wasp Waist

One of my most favorite magazine spreads was in Italian Vogue, where Stella Tennant channels (thank you photoshop!) the waist of Ethel Granger, world record holder of the smallest waist AT A MERE 13‚ÄĚ through ‚Äúnatural‚ÄĚ corseting through the years!!!!! ‚ÄďAnd I was thinking she at least had to have a rib or two removed!!!

Style Icon: Emanuel Limon

8 Jun
 About a month ago, I had the amazing opportunity to meet Emanuel Limon, visionary extraordinaire, expressing his ideas through design, art, and photography. Like a mash-up between Warhol and Rick Owens, Limon pushes the envelope with his reconstructed masterpieces. 
 

His sunglasses first caught my eye with futuristic shaping and mixed-media that I‚Äôve never seen before. When asked where he got them, he understatedly said ‚ÄúI made them.‚ÄĚ And I‚Äôm thinking: wow-where¬†do you even begin with making sunglasses?!¬†¬†

And it doesn’t end there, Limon also reconstructs and designs clothing, shoes, bags, jewelry and artwork stating,

“I push myself to do things I wouldn’t be comfortable doing in order to grow as a person.”
 
 
These are some of my favorite¬†Emanuel Limon piece’s:

The Style Behind the Dragon Tatoo

14 Feb

So I’ve caught the fever- the Dragon Tatoo fever that is. I’m¬†not particularly¬†an avid reader, especially on early morning train rides-(how do they do it?!), or anything that’s longer than a¬†magazine article. Nothing seems to grab my attention long enough. We’ll I’ve been itching to dive into a good story for quite some time now, when¬†a friend of mine recommended The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, which in fact had been the 2nd time someone has recommended the book to me. AND best of all, the whole series is available on Netfilx. If you haven’t read any of the novels written by Stieg¬†Larsson, I promise there will be no spills here, but this action-packed crime thriller will take you by your heels. There’s ass-kicking, hacking, betrayal, sexual encounters, murder, and¬†¬†more. (That’s my Reading Rainbow dissertation for you)

Lisbeth Salander,¬†THE GIRL, ¬†is¬†being compared to by critics¬†as the 21 century Pippi¬†Longstocking, who personally was one of my first heroes-now I have found another. She’s cool, edgy, doesn’t give a shit what people think, and her¬†super power is having the ability to hack into any of your resources to find your inner, most darkest secrets.¬†Besides her skill,¬†she’s also got style-¬†frequenting¬† leather boots, ripped jeans, tees, hoodies, and leather jackets.

Below are my personal picks for Lisbeth’s style this season:

1. Takoon Paneled Leather Jacket

2. Thakoon Breakaway Legging

3. FancySexyMe Tenderizor

4. Christian Louboutin Morrigan Studded Leather Bag

5. Concept Motocycle

6. FancySexyMe Skullcrusher

7. All Saints Hydrus Tailcoat

8. Ann Demeulemeester High-Top Sneakers

9. Givenchy White Studded Gloves

10. Balenciaga Spring11 Moto Jacket

1. Joseph Altuzarra Buckle Jacket

2. FancySexyMe Razor Necklace

3. All Saints Isemene Trouser

4. Rick Owens Wrap Sweater

5. Alexander Herchcovitch Fall 11/12

6. Alexander Wang Kristen Suede Tote

7. FancySexyMe “Go Fuck Off” Engraved Knuckle Duster

8. Alexander Wang Mirte Lace Up Sock Boots

9. Balenciaga Spring 11 Boot w/ Studded Sole

10. Burberry SS 11 Studded Jacket

What are your fav picks for this season?

Style Icon: Lissy Trullie

24 Jan

Model, Muse, DJ, Singer, Songwriter, STYLE ICON

Lissy¬†Trullie¬†has quite a resume. She has graced the pages of such magazines as Elle, SOMA, and Jalouse. For Lissy¬†modeling was¬†a part-time gig as “just a way to make money during college” while studying Graphic Design. She was the face of Opening Ceremony and also the muse for Moses de la Renta, son of Oscar.

Besides looks, this girl’s got an ear. Beginning her career DJing¬†at hotspots such a Beatrice¬†Inn, and now as front women in her own band which released their EP “Self Taught Learner”. One of my favorite songs “Boy Boy,” video was shot in the basement of the infamous Lit Lounge. She also has an awesome cover of Hot Chip’s “Ready for the Floor.”

So she’s got talent, but most important is¬†Lissy’s¬†style. Her androgynous and effortless look pulls in ’80’s reflections¬†with blazers and¬†leather¬†motos, layered with a tee,¬†and is finished off, more than not,¬†with a bowler hat. Her quiet and modest personality comes out when approach on her style stating most of her clothes are pieces randomly¬†given to her, which she throws together—simple as that. Regardless of effort, we love her look!
