This season, the Dsquared² girl is a secretary, or maybe a librarian, with a seriously wild streak. By day, she wears a little cardigan tossed over a belted turtleneck and pencil skirt, a camel coat with a fur collar, or, when she's feeling bold, a tartan skirt suit with pleats at the back of a nip-waisted jacket. But after dark, it's a different story. She spends most nights at her lover's place, in lingerie and most importantly in some KILLA shoes... Sometimes with silver spikes or 6' plus heels that are truly unforgiving! The shoes in the collection were coquettish, lascivious & too good for words! I can't wait to get my hands on em....

What's eating Nay Nay?

She's made millions of dollars with her face yet this person (whom I shall not call a woman or lady for the mere fact she acts like a volatile 2yr old) loves to attack unsuspecting individuals whom she feels is beneath her- Why hasn't she snuffed Karl Lagerfeld , slapped André Leon Talley or Thrown her Blackberry at her BFF Kate Moss? NayNay needs to re-evaluate her behavior & get something for that hairline....

COMME DES GARCONS FOR H&M


H&M HAS announced its next designer collaborator: Comme des Garcons. The famously avant-garde Japanese label, spearheaded by design powerhouse Rei Kawakubo, will provide a range of both men's and womenswear, as well as childrenswear, accessories and a new unisex fragrance for the retailer. In honor of its Japanese roots, the collaborative line will launch exclusively at H&M in Tokyo in November before being rolled out worldwide a few days later. "I have always been interested in the balance between creation and business," says Kawakubo of the collaboration. "It is a dilemma, although for me creation has always been the first priority. It is a fascinating challenge to work with H&M since it is a chance to take the dilemma to its extreme, and try to solve it." "Rei Kawakubo has been on the top of our wish list for a long time and we are thrilled that she has chosen to collaborate with us," adds H&M creative advisor Margareta van den Bosch. "We have tremendous respect for Kawakubo's fashion philosophy questioning fashion's ingrained patterns and we admire her artistic approach to design. We are particularly excited to launch the collection in Kawakubo’s native country at our launch in Japan." H&M's designer collaborations are the stuff of modern legend - capsule collections for the brand by Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld, Viktor & Rolf and, most recently, Roberto Cavalli have proved instant sell-out successes.
