Going Undercover

Jun Takahashi's AW2010 collection for Undercover debuted in Paris this weekend. Eschewing the formal runway, Takahashi opted yet again for an unconventional presentation, presenting a live lookbook. Creating a mise-en-scene reminiscent of a foreign indie film, the designer employed his wife Riko to model the cosy-casual layers in front of a series of projected backgrounds. Ranging from an airport to a hotel corridor to a supermarket car park, Riko effortlessly assumed the stance of traveller, hotel guest and consumer, and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Bravo.

Barbie goes gaga

I do enjoy a good make over, and doesn't Barbie look swell in her Gaga-garb?
Courtesy of Lu Wei Kang, Babs now has her very own weird and wonderful wardrobe to wear to the Monster Ball.
I wonder what Ken would say?

Who's that girl?

This little lady was all over the streets of London during LFW. Clad in hairy-scary barbie doll creations, she gave Gaga a run for her money in those shoulder-pads. A little bit of research revealed her to be one Rhiannon Jones, a novice fashion designer from up north. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next...
