Asher Levine w/ AlpineStars

The outlandishly cool footwear is designed by Asher Levine in collaboration with Alpinestars. The kicks were incorporated into the designers F/W 2011 collection which you can see HERE. They are immensely enjoyable--although I would dread scuffing them or hurting someone with them. See more of Levine's fantastical footwear designs HERE.

from Dorian Magazine

From the pages of Dorian comes this story, shot by Enokae--Heretic. What we find is the use of intense accessories (I'm even enjoying the bowl-cut): necklace--silver and mesh, by Fannie Schiavoni; headpiece by Jaiden rva James. Both fantastic. See more of the shoot HERE on YVY.

a warrior inspired shoot by Fernando Mazza

I'm in the mood for some escape, so why not a fantasy of warrior-like proportions and grandeur. That is the inspiration for this shoot by photographer Fernando Mazza with the help of stylists Mauricio Mariano and Alessandro Lazaro. What I'm enjoying most about the story is the accessories--bountiful. I'm inspired to pursue some bounded and belted decadence--and the chain mesh head piece is killer. See more HERE at Fashionisto.

Christian Louboutin's Rollerboys

These cotton made and tartan covered shoes by Christian Louboutin are kicked up to the next level with the addition of silver spiked studs. Good luck wearing them onto an airplane. They do come at a steep price, but the look is striking--and really gets my creative juices flowing.

Simon Spurr--Spring 2012

Simon Spurr has delivered the most enjoyable collection for New York Fashion Week Spring 2012 that I have seen thus far. What I enjoy is the use of mixed materials--creating a vibrancy--and the color striped pieces. Oh--and I cannot leave out the knee high boots. All together, the stripes, mixed materials, and overall sheen create a very Rock&Roll inspired vibe--just check out the cut on the leather jacket. See more of the collection HERE on Fashionisto.

Brian Lichtenberg in UMag August 2011

Shirley Yu photographs pieces by Brian Lichtenberg of L.A. for the sex issue--August 2011-- of UMag: the feature entitled "Summer Time." I'm a fan of the reflective jacket and enjoy the way Lictenberg brings that glimmer to the simplistic structure of a tank. See more HERE on UMag.
