Blood Wounded Flowers S/S 10

(photos by Bella)
(Inspirational Board)

One of many reasons I love Blue Onion Marketplace luxury boutique is the tremendous versatility each piece invokes when you least expect it. Sifting through the dynamics of experimentation and innovative design, alongside the webbing art of styling/accessorizing, it's comes down to the blueprint details. So, it's no surprise that when owner, Michele Syre, contacted me, I was thrilled with the opportunity to collaborate and reconstruct the Dulken & Derrick Flower Pins she'd sent over. The only obvious answer was yes, but with vertiginous elation, I assure you.
After studying each piece and drawing from personal inspiration, Alex and I spent the afternoon immersed in our little craft vessel. Entranced. Moody. Entertained.
Ultimately, the decision to integrate some of the ominously-evocative elements of designer Carol Christian Poell as well as Dior Homme S/S 02 Boys Don't Cry/RED Collection solved all those contemplative expressions. Delving into the etherealization of Dulken & Derrick, haunting rock, wounded love, classic Chanel, pretty vs. painstakingly dirty, and a menswear slim-fit silhouette, we counterbalanced our own interpretations against such a list of exquisite designers.
We couldn't be happier with the end results. Thank you Michele... you're amazing!!!

I love the way you formatted everything...normal photos followed by the groups of polaroids. There's a wonderful dark romanticism to all of it. Your shoe shots look great. Of course the feather flower... And you finished it off with a smile! :D The inspiration board is great, too! Wonderful work, love!!!!!!!!!

Designing the closet of dreams

There I was, standing hypnotically in an empty room that was destined to become the closet of my dreams. Gazing upward to the rows of cherry wood, the empty shelves lined in sequence as I shrank beneath a wall that seemed to grow taller with such unavoidable psychotic jubilation.  I meant to share these pictures a while back, and hopefully you'll see the hard work my mom and I put into remodeling/revamping/redesigning this room. It was really one of those surreal fantasies that feel like they'll always be just fantasies, until the very last nail solidified a realization that it had all finally come together.
