Parallel universes – cool fashion shoot August 29, 2007

Filed under: cool photoshoot,Fav Fashion,mens apparel — irenescloset @ 3:10 pm

This is the first time I am blogging about men’s fashion. I always wanted a mens line at the store… but do you think I still have space left? hmmmm. I want to share my discovery. First, I love the fashion shoot, that’s how I discovered Merc.

” If it’s possible to put an address to a mood, a movement, a whole genre of sixties style, carnaby street’s bang on target. merc was there back then, is still hangin there today, an icon, nearly 40 years and many mod revivals later. except now the merc word is truly global, and its appeal pan-generational. Mod fashion transcends decades. sharp looks from different eras meld, metamorphose and shape the styles of today. and nobody’s finger’s more on the pulse of what was, and what will be, than merc’s.with roots in the 60’s vibe of ska and northern soul, merc has carved a unique niche with a vibrant harmonic that echoes across time and continent.”

Here are the photos I picked out.. I just had to share it with you.

How fabulous is this dress? March 19, 2007

How fabulous is this dress?
Extremely stunning but yes beyond expensive. I admire the magnificantly crafted but yet uncleanable ornamentation. But I simply dont care. I just love it. Its from the chloe’s summer collection. The most perfect palette, pattern and silhouette… what ‘s there not to love? I am sure if my friend Joyce would see this – she’ll just say – “kayang kaya mo gawin yan!” (tagalog) which means “you can easily do that”.


Doc Martens making a come back? November 25, 2006

stam_vogueit1106_6.jpgThose are not combat boots… those are the popular doc martens during the 90’s… Oh please! Never did I imagine. =) I love the black and white photos by Tom Munro for the November 2006 Vogue Italia. I remember paring this ol grungy Doc Martens with a very feminine chiffon dress. I wonder where my old docs are? Probably sold it for 200 pesos in a garage sale few years back. I wonder how much they are selling now.stam_vogueit1106.jpg stam_vogueit1106_2.jpg stam_vogueit1106_4.jpg stam_vogueit1106_5.jpg stam_vogueit1106_7.jpg

I just had to post it in my blog. I never had the chance to wear it though. I don’t know what outfit I can pair it with… Help.. Help me find an outfit that I could pair with this fabulous steal.
