My love.

And yes, I do realise that basically everyone else has already posted these and that you've probably seen them in all the fashion mags (twice), BUT every time I look at them, they bring a smile to my face. I mean, little black guns. Who wouldve thought of that??!!!

And after hours looking back through various collections, some from 2832234 years ago..., I was reminded of how much I love this from AWang Fall 08 and the second is from Ann Demeulmeester Spring 09 ( THAT DIAMONDY THING SHIRT OBJECT IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!)Oh, and those Ann D lace up shoes are pretty darn awesome too.

Alexander Wang and Ann D (AND HAIDER ACKERMANN) are probably two of my favourite designers. At first glance, they are really asthetically different, but when you delve into the 'core' of the clothing, you can see similarities. Like the use of ( or rather lack of) colour, excepting the AW Spring 09 collection, which I didn't like as much as his others anyway. Also, the androgynous-ness can be seen in both of those designers clothing. And also the play on drape etc. Too hard to explain in words. Hope you guys get what I mean ;)
