Pink Eye

Sorry, it's been awhile! Sadly, I haven't been very inspired as of late, but I saw some of pictures of the 2011 Dior Cruise Collection that debuted in Shanghai, China, and I adore this Barbie-esque collection! John Galliano was inspired from the designs of the French Nouvelle Vague cinematic movement. This très chic collection exudes the look of 60’s Parisian in pieces composed of flirty ruffled frocks, decadent tulle and organza gowns in pastel candy tones. It also has a nod of here and there to the masculine with pops of classic plaid prints and mod black and white stripes.




This one dress in particular brought back memories from my childhood. Galliano created a Barbie-esque wardrobe that is every girl's dream.


Side note: Who doesn't love a panda with a pink birthday cake?? Tai Shan's pretty pink cake is made out of ice, beet juice and bamboo.

L Filipe dos Santos




L Filipe dos Santos (aka Corcoise) was born in the summer of 1978 in Portugal. He grew up in a rural environment but watched too much television and, through his adolescence, he developed his rural-hype self identity. Not knowing what to do with it, he searched for some way to express himself. So, by the age of 16, he started sketching. 
Today he doesn't remember anymore what was it that he wanted to express back then. But well, he keeps drawing... ― Corcoise
