“Be your own muse”

Hello there! Went pining looking for inspiration and lost the track of time. I guess it’s true that 1 minute surfing Pinterest is 15 minutes in real life… but I’m here again with the inspiration I was looking for.

Moda Operandi launched a new campaign under the name “Be your own muse” in collaboration with some Gods of the fashion world such as Carolina Herrera. I must confess that I felt kind of silly looking for inspiration everywhere without realizing that inspiration was in front pf the mirror every day!

This clever campaign stand out the importance of self creations of style, wearing clothes that scream who you are and what you want to project to the world instead of wearing a brand or stuff that you don’t die for just because is on trend.

No more talking!  I let you with the ones who know their business. Enjoy!

Lanvin and Pitbull

I must confess I’m a big fan of Pitbull and when I knew Lanvin (that has an special place in my heart) had a mix with his music for the new FW Campaign got shocked!. This is not really a song I’m crazy about but I have to admit it’s awesome!!!  The contrast between the whole look, the models’ attitude and the rhythm of the music makes the concept even better.

Candy: Alber Elbaz is just eye candy in this video (or anywhere!)

Fashion’s Night Out around the world.

As you know, Fashion’s Night Out is now a global event, so I guess you girls out there took tons of pictures, shopped the “season must” and wore your best outfit! ! Please be narcisists and let us envy you by sharing all the nice pieces you found last night and spred  your glam by showing us what you wore! All your pictures and links to your blogs are going to be published if you wish, so, let me hear about you!!!

Design Challenge:Save the Week! Jennifer Lopez, another break-up.

How many marriages has Jennifer Lopez had ? Well , let´s see :

Lopez’s first marriage was to Cuban-born Ojani Noa onFebruary 22, 1997. Ended at January 1998

Her second marriage was to her former backup dancerCris Judd. The two were married on September 29, 2001, at a home in the L.A. suburbs. Their marriage effectively ended in June 2002, when Lopez began publicly dating Ben Affleck.

Less than two months after her break-up with Affleck, Lopez was seen with singer Marc Anthony, a long-time friend with whom she had worked in music videos. They had briefly dated in the late 1990s, before his first marriage and her second. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jennifer_Lopez)

Lopez and Anthony married in a quiet home wedding on June 5, 2004 and as we all know it ended just last month.

We are all disappointed and felling a bit betrayed, but hey you know, kind of we expected it. For that reason I have designed the ultimate I don´t care if you ever get married again Jennifer Lopez APP.

This APP works as a Jennifer Lopez face recognition system , every time her face appears on the screen or if her name gets shout somewhere , it immediately will trade it for screen shoots of “The Perfect Marriage Movie “ starring Loretta Young and David Niven. Great design idea.

I really wanted to design something to avoid another hook up that will end into a divorce, but let’s face it, getting married/divorced is a hobby for Jennifer Lopez so, here is the quick sketch for her next quick marriage, a beautiful wedding gown ! This is a beautiful design and i will hate to think that JLo or anyone will only use it once, but hey, it doesn´t really matter, this wedding gown design will last forever as long as Jennifer Lopez ends her marriage as quick as she possibly can.

Hoped you have enjoyed this Week´s design challenge, we sure did !Don´t forget to comment  to improve our design ideas. ;P

Next week: Barbie! why? because it´s Barbie!!!

Let’s talk about concepts, ready? by definition “wearable” is anything that is in direct contact with your skin, so, that includes fragrances, in other words you are actually dressed up by just wearing perfume. Imagine the possibilities and happiness when you have fashion legends and couture reigning your dressing room from gorgeous bottles.

Now, let’s talk about Gaultier, the name speaks for itself and it’s not shy at all to yell glamour, sexiness and temptation… I guess is time to introduce you Jon Kortajarena, the man who bring those words to life and the fragance which is the soul of them, Kokorico.

Jon Kortajarena is a spanish top model but is easy to see that if you check this

Candy: turn your boyfriend into a hot boyfriend by dressing him up just with Kokoriko, the notes of fig leaves, cacao and wood will give a man in it´s purest way.

Design Challenge: Save the Week!: News of the World Scandal

News of The World

When celebrity news becomes more important than anything else. With this new scandal, of reporters and media hacking cellphones just to get access to the news first, we see a side of the news paper that we do not like. Thus, I give you the news paper cleaning collection, a new design  to solve world newspaper crisis.

The design is inspired by the disgusting feeling we have everyday when we read the newspaper, News of the World it´s only an excuse, the truth is that most part of daily news are just crap, that´s why i´ve designed a  “news toilet paper”  and it´s matching partner a news paper towel .

 On the other hand, I find apologizing a polite way to deal with the scandal.

Seriously people! send flowers,apologizing cards, cry and beg for forgiveness, as an actress in progress I wouldn’t even think another way but you to go down on your knees and beg me to accept all the money you made selling newspapers full of information you stole that way!!! Shame on you!

After these bitter news, we will be entertaining you with the end of a saga, Harry Potter last movie release in America.

Lenny Niemeyer: Summer, Architecture and Fashion

Hey, hey you there!

When i say “summer time” what is the first picture that comes to your mind? Yes! bikinis!!! and hot bodies of course… and where is the place where everybody look like a half naked top model all the time? Brazil, for sure. The most important thing to have in mind when you are heading brazilian beaches is that you are going to be surrounded by dreamy natural bodies, so the way to can make a big entrance is by wearing  stunning swimwear and the girl for the perfect brazilian swimwear is Lenny Niemeyer.

Lenny Niemeyer used to be a landscape architect and family of the most famous brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.  This background let her create pieces that mix architectonic textures, balance, concept and take to women’s skin the words of Oscar Niemeyer ”  It is not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free and sensual curve — the curve that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the body of the beloved woman”

The non fabric elements make the eye focus on your back through a sensual curve.   

The broken ceramic texture will take your breast to the spotlight.

Geometry .

The curve makes the look go trought all your body. 

The reminder of a wall, tall, strong, indestructible…

So, girls, summer is here, work out and turn the beach into your empire!

Candy: stylish one piece swimwear by Lenny! I love the 2008 collection, but the new one is awesome too!!!
