For all who are unaware, we recently lost a ton of content due to our Data Centre crashing and leaving us shit out of luck. Because of this, I have spent the past days trying to get our site back in order, and stressing out professionally. Our Osheaga post was the most recent posted and therefore did not make the back up cut  and died somewhere in the webosphere. I’m sure what I wrote was clever but I have no desire to attempt to replicate my thoughts from last week.  Instead I give you this little frustrated blurb to update you on the current situation. They say a picture is worth a thousand words…so here are over 20 000 words documenting our weekend at Osheaga! _W7C9039 _W7C8979 _W7C9087 _W7C8992 _W7C9073 _W7C9017 _W7C9048 _W7C9076 _W7C9054 _W7C9117 _W7C9079 _W7C9133

Hervé Léger Spring /Summer 2016

2015-09-12 at 11-14-59 New York, New York

Paris fashion week is about to begin on the other side of the pond, but it wasn’t so long ago we were attending a french brand’s show in New York. Well a french couturier later acquired by an american designer, but you know….tomayto, tomahto. It was the 30th anniversary of the brand I wore religiously in high school, and I was blown away not only by what I saw, but more so by what I didn’t see. Hérve Léger’s Spring/Summer ’16 collection didn’t have one bandage dress in sight, instead the line evolved to innovative surface design and high-impact textured patterns created by hand-weaved techniques like macramé, knotting and intricate floral appliqué work. Do not fear…the bodycon silhouettes were still very much present, but the addition of flared trousers to the line added an element of cool, that I couldn’t have predicted would look so damn slick paired with their particular aesthetic. Also, anyone putting bell sleeves on the runway this season has my vote, and the ones presented were beautifully structured and brought a contemporary edge to the style usually reserved for flowing fabrics. The collection was followed by a curated finale of retrospective signature pieces from 2009 until present. Each piece embodied the vision and the evolution of the brand’s iconic techniques and took me on a pleasant stroll down memory lane. One thing is certain…Heve Leger will no longer be a brand synonymous with school dances, YSL tribute pumps,  or my closet archives. I want me some printed Hérve pants and I want them now! 2015-09-12 at 11-05-02 2015-09-12 at 11-06-56 2015-09-12 at 11-04-19 2015-09-12 at 11-08-10 2015-09-12 at 11-09-05 2015-09-12 at 11-05-50 2015-09-12 at 11-08-53 2015-09-12 at 11-07-42 2015-09-12 at 11-11-20 2015-09-12 at 11-09-22 2015-09-12 at 11-12-27 2015-09-12 at 11-58-11 2015-09-12 at 12-00-02 2015-09-12 at 12-01-00 2015-09-12 at 12-29-16 2015-09-12 at 12-29-35 2015-09-12 at 12-29-51 2015-09-12 at 12-30-29 2015-09-12 at 12-30-46 2015-09-12 at 12-31-05 2015-09-12 at 12-31-21 2015-09-12 at 12-31-41 2015-09-12 at 12-31-58 2015-09-12 at 12-32-18 2015-09-12 at 12-32-33 2015-09-12 at 12-32-50 2015-09-12 at 12-33-31 2015-09-12 at 12-33-52 2015-09-12 at 12-34-05 2015-09-12 at 12-34-23 2015-09-12 at 12-34-39 2015-09-12 at 12-34-58 2015-09-12 at 12-35-16 2015-09-12 at 12-35-52 2015-09-12 at 12-36-11 2015-09-12 at 12-36-30 2015-09-12 at 12-36-49 2015-09-12 at 12-37-05 2015-09-12 at 12-37-44 2015-09-12 at 12-42-03 2015-09-12 at 12-45-34 2015-09-12 at 12-45-55 2015-09-12 at 12-50-45 2015-09-12 at 12-54-57 2015-09-12 at 12-55-52 I decided to commit to this NYFW thing, and wear the Wang leather and fur jacket in the hot hot heat

Dior “Technologic” sunglasses and missmatched earrings, Alexander Wang jacket, Nasty Gal blouse, Zara belt, vintage Calvin Klein shorts, Louis Vuitton “Petite Malle”, and Balenciaga boots later switched for Adidas “Superstar” sneakers.

Are you there Summer? It’s me, Claude.

2014-03-07 at 12-04-41 Miami

And here I am..blonde as ever! As mentioned in my previous post, this is version 2.0 of the lighter locks after a very unfortunate first try. This whole hair transformation all started when I viewed The Wildfox Lagoon lookbook shot by The Cobra Snake, and decided I wanted to be a Mermaid when I walked down the isle in a couple months time. So there it is, my first half fish moment…I think I may invest in a weave for full effect for the big day. We shall see my friends. Until then, enjoy me over accessorizing for our beach day in Miami. 2014-03-07 at 11-44-28 2014-03-07 at 11-40-03 2014-03-07 at 11-49-59 2014-03-07 at 11-42-29 2014-03-07 at 11-47-37 2014-03-28 at 10-22-16 2014-03-07 at 11-57-21 2014-03-07 at 11-57-35 2014-03-07 at 12-09-00 2014-03-07 at 12-07-03 2014-03-28 at 10-42-37 2014-03-28 at 10-44-10 2014-03-28 at 10-37-28 Bad to the Blonde
