Dictator Chic

Despite Mubarak's notoriety, I gotta say that he's got a sense in style and an eye for detail.

If only . . . Marios Schwab

Recently, I have been completely head-over-heels for this quilted, goose-down parka by Marios Schwab. I first laid eyes on these when I went to Saks Fifth Avenue in New York last weekend. It was so royally but nonchalantly displayed on a hanger that it caught my attention among all the flat shirts and heavy wool coats. The structure, volume, and the line of this coat is simply divine-- from the off-shoulder neckline to the flare at the bottom. Can I say, "fashionably orgasmic"?

VERY avant-garde which I ADORE.

If only . . . if only I could drop $2,000 on this beauty.
Maybe I'll just wear you in my dreams :) perfection.

Designer Watch: Dion Lee

Australian fashion designer, Dion Lee showcased his RTW Spring/Summer 2010-2011 collection recently at the Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. Some of his pieces had gorgeous symmetrical organic prints that look like those art works we did in elementary school-- where we had to paint one side of the paper and fold it, making a symmetrical inkblot type print. The pleating details on his black and powder blue dresses were also absolutely fantastical! I especially ADORE the crazy pleats on his black dress and those black-and- purple-hole-punched leggings. Dion Lee is definitely one of those upcoming designers to watch, and I can't wait to see what he'll show us next. Now my question is, where can I go find some of his pieces in the U.S or even in Asia?

Vogue Korea: Hyori Lee in Jeremy Scott

I love how sporty pieces are mixed with feminine details or dresses. They're two very different "worlds" and putting them together may clash oddly, but I think it works really well here. It's like a new creation of a new style. I especially adore the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 6th outfits!

Music: Urban Zakapa & Hil St. Soul... and more...

I'm really into acid jazz, soul, lounge and the Korean underground, indie/house music scene these days. I think it's because of the weather... It's getting much warmer and transitioning into spring/summer, my favorite seasons :)

I feel like the indie & house/electronic music scene in Korea definitely needs more attention. They're so underrated and overshadowed by mainstream, pop boy & girl groups. I mean, I personally enjoy listening to those kind of genres as well, but I've been appreciating the underdogs more, so to say haha
For example, I'm adoring bands like Urban Zakapa, House Rulez, Casker, Ra.D, Humming Urban Stereo, and Peppertones. If you haven't heard their sounds yet, you should check them out through Youtube. Trust me, you won't be disappointed if you enjoy listening to chill, house or electronic music.
I have also found a new, gorgeous singer named Hil St. Soul... She's absolutely magical, and her music and voice is just beautiful to listen to. I've uploaded some music samples by some of the musicians I've listed above.
Put your volume up, chill, and enjoy these beautiful, romantic sounds that will truly bring you to another world of peace & goodness . . . ENJOY <3
