ysl inspiration

last sunday i saw the new yves saint laurent biopic. what a feast for the eyes. any flaws it might have are easily made up by the visuals. the story was inspiring as well. it made me want to sew, draw, write, shop. it also made me interested in the designer himself, & his (older) work. yves saint laurent is one of those designers i’ve never really appreciated for some reason. funny, since he introduced pants for women.

i’ve been doing some googling throughout the week & now have a ysl folder in my pictures. some of my favourites:

my mother bought me this watch through national geographic. it’s way too big for my tiny wrist, but i don’t care. i love it. it’s a replica of the watches german pilots wore in the second world war. you have to wind it up & everything.

i adore this handpiece. i bought it a couple of weeks ago & i’ve been wearing it practically every day since it arrived.

thanks for reading/looking!

transforming this old blog

so, i’ve tried blogging about vegan food. not something i found very interesting in the long run. something i do find interesting in the long run is fashion. that is what this blog will be about from now on. think inspiration posts, daily outfits, reviews on relevant independent companies & such. in celebration of both art & consumerism. we’ll see how this goes.
