Post Millenial Power Dressing

Pugh aw 07/ Margiela aw 07/ Lanvin aw 07/

We are really into big shoulders right now - moulded, architectural, peaked, elevated...

Gareth Pugh, Lanvin and Maison Martin Margiela pushed this silhouette forward this season with monstrous (amazing conceptually but wearable? nah...) ear gazers, deconstructed raw edged 40's poufs and sci-fi padded bodys respectively.

Inspired by the incredibly fresh and forward direction of these shows we have started sourcing and collecting designers implicitly and explicitly referenced - the grand-daddy's and mommy's of futuristic and uber-female fashion namely Thierry Mugler, Claude Montana and early Versace.

The images of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin have also massively influenced our buy.
few at the moment are embracing this look, afraid perhaps being taken too literally ... we are on the look-out though and will begin to post street shots as soon as we spot even a hint of this new, top heavy look.

We welcome your photo's and commentary.

We are and you should check us out now!!!
