cool down under

so i’ve been checking out australia’s fashion week photos, [which has proven to be a surprisingly difficult task – apparently my computer and vogue australia’s website don’t enjoy each other’s company]. it’s definitely different from fashion on this half of the globe. there is a lot more playfulness in australian fashion. it seems to lack that uptight pretension you can easily spot in a lot of fashion from america and europe. i was especially glad to come upon ginger & smart while browsing, so i looked them up and was pleased to find that i liked their old stuff even better. [they even managed to make a maxi-dress that i don’t despise!] definitely an inspiration for summer dressing.

[can’t say i dig the obnoxious fringey stuff though…]

i should have known when he referenced kate moss

so who else thinks that it is totally freakin awesome [and c’mon, a little cute] that kanye west is so into fashion and goes to all the shows? well i do. he always looks fresh and his fiancee alexis is no slob either. [although i must say i’m not a fan of her ghita line.] 

read kanye’s blog; it’s full of fashion week stuff and other aesthetically pleasing things.

seriously how awesome? kanye with victor and rolf! :D
