Oh Oleg thank you for that pillerbox

He dressed the woman that became one of the most important when it comes to female fashion, Oleg Cassini made clothes for Jaqueline Kennedy. The debonair who moved from from Florence, where he grew up, to the US 1936. He became a debonair, a social and something of a player, dating stars like Grace Kelly, Ursula Andress and he married Gene Tierney who helped his career a lot by wearing his design in all of her films until their divorce in 1952.
It's because of Mrs Kennedys' choice of making him the White House Couturier 1960 that we need to thank thank for a lot of pieces we still admire, and see as classics, today. He created the pillerbox, oversized buttons, the carefully tailored suits Jaqueline wore so many times. Cassini designed around 300 outfits for the first lady which makes him one of the really great designers in the history of American fashion.

I love fashion, I really do and someday I want to wear couture from Christian Lacroix and Chanel. This is from fall 2008 and I can't wait to see what they will come up with this year!
Both houses really make the most exquisite clothes, the outfits breaths perfection even when they are not that nice. Perhaps that's the thrill with couture, it looks great just because you know the time spent on it is so long and the pieces are made by hand with delicacy. Couture is about dreaming of beauty, time and it allows a woman to feel unique and special.
I wonder if you're a bad person if one of your goals in life is to someday be able to buy your very own couture. There is nothing wrong with dreaming, I know, but sometimes it does feel a bit shallow wanting to have amazing clothes when young children are starving. It really is a diffucult thing to decide where to draw the line between overconsumption and just wanting to look nice. Hm... I will give this a thought I think..

To do something new and creative can be a difficult thing to do, and to do it in a fashionable way can be even harder. Perhaps that's why a lot of the top fashioneditors and bloggers seam to absolutely love Maison Martin Margiela's new collection for this spring. The house is celebrating it's 20th- anniversary and showed a few of his most memorable pieces, like a jacket from 1988, which ofcourse is supertrendy now since the eighties with it's shoulder pads is going to be big (and trendy) this season too. Margiela really is a trendsetter and if you look back at collections from his earlier years you understand that other designers often remake and interpret his design, making it their own. Margiela might not always be easy to wear (I mean, who would like o go to a party wearing... hair?) he really is designer that fascinate me!

Ps. I really think you should have a look at the collection here at Style

the day after....it's a new year and I need some sleep

I'm pretty sure we all do. The first day of a new year is not my favorite of the 365 ones there is to come. I'm tired and even if it's because I had a fantastic time yesterday it's not that fun at the moment... I hope you all had a great time yesterday and LETS MAKE 2009 TO THE BEST YEAR EVER.. until next year. And then the year after that.
