“Runaways” the ONIKAI Look Book Fashion Film is finally online!
From the designer about Runaways: “In the film the main character is being chased by her dark self and she comes to realize in the end that this dream land that her mischievous side is existing in is really reality. It is this idea that we can not really hide from those dark parts of our selves, and I really think this idea is translated into the collection.”
“…you can call Runaways a look book, a fashion film, a story… what ever you want to call it. The film does not highlight the collection as a whole, but some of my favorite key pieces that helped tell the story of Runaways and vice versa, it gives the emotion and idea behind the line.”
“This is why I love fashion so much it can not be contained in a box, it can not be cornered or limited to one idea… it is what ever us designers want it to be.”
Usually I don’t do the “i hate this” blog post, but I just saw a woman in Starbucks who had on feather earrings, cut-offs and Jeffrey Campbell “Lita’s” and it pushed me over the edge lol.
1.) The Jeffrey Campbell “Lita”. Once upon a time I loved this shoe… and I still sort of love this shoe if it’s in a print or novelty fabric. HOWEVER… this shoe is SO over exposed on the web, Instagram, blogs, fashion events… and all over the streets of Los Angeles. Women are walking all over town with horse like hoofs for feet! The worst is when you see someone with an awful, ill fitted outfit paired with the JC’s… it’s like a runway model got robbed by the fashion illiterate. Over it.
2.) Feather… anything. Do I even need to elaborate? Feathers are for birds and Alexander McQueen… not your face. Over it.
3.) Bow tie necklaces. Yes fashion should be playful and fun… but when every other person is walking around town with these on it’s time to pass them on to your younger sister, dog or wait the 4 year trend circle for them to come back around. Over it.
Apologies if I am offending anyone with my opinions… now go take those feather earring OFF.
If you ever run into me on the streets of Los Angeles and I’m wearing high-tops or Nikes of any sort… you know it’s been a long day and/or that I am half asleep. In fact I pretty much don’t like to run into anyone on the street when I have tennis shoes on (ha) I even grocery shop in some sort of heeled boot or shoe. The only happy medium for me is combat boots or a flat fashion boot. Yesterday I was flipping through the pages of Nylon and came across this new sea foam green Palladium boot that looks like an updated version of Timberland meets hiking boots on crack. I love them. I would rock these into the sunset with a leather jacket and pair of Ray Bans. No it’s not Christmas but it’s never to early for gifts… hint? I think so.
When I was helping out at The Huffington Post Weddings section as a “fashion commentator” [ha] while they were live blogging about The Kardashian’s Wedding Special, I made special notice of how much leopard print everyone was wearing. “It’s like they’ll get sick and die if they don’t wear leopard print.” However, let’s be honest… this is like the pot calling the kettle black. I have some how acquired a collection of leopard print dresses (formal and casual in different color combos), tights, stockings, earrings, sweaters, jumpsuits and rings. [what’s wrong with me lol] It didn’t dawn on me that I had a real problem until I looked through my Instagram photos and realized that for every 5 photos of myself I was wearing something leopard print in at least 1 of them. [insert addiction here] However I’m going to embrace this addiction head on like a happy alcoholic, and next in my collection I’m adding shoes…
