acne tuxedo

our latest shipment from acne consists of three elegant pieces:  a jacket, a pant, and a pair of shorts...all in washed black silk.   i've been thinking about all the ways a woman would wear this little wardrobe.   i like the pantsuit with no top under and maybe a pair of white sneakers and some red lips, the short suit with a corset and heels, the pantsuit with no shoes for entertaining, the short suit with a t shirt and moccasin, the pantsuit with a button down shirt and some tie oxfords, and the jacket over every dress.

paris trip

on my recent trip to paris i was told about a special bookstore by my friend sanya.  they have any book about fashion, art,  film.  they had a giant book about french new wave film.  at some point i'll need to own it, but too heavy to carry that day and also not enough photos  of  great looking women smoking.  in the back of the store was a little gallery.  it wasn't marked but i'm pretty sure the show was a mark borthwick.  by far my favorite thing i saw this trip!  such simple almost juvenile ideas for dressing walls and showing your photos.  i've replicated a few of them and especially the little mirror.  i had a fantasy that i might keep a few mirrors in my purse so that at any time i could hang one anywhere, anytime - guerilla style.   a friend's house perhaps?  a restaurant bathroom?  maybe not my style and anyway the secret is out now.

acne s/s 2009

Acne’s low and comfortable wedge makes it ideal
for strolling around. The shaft is folded down and 
attached with a stitch. The stitch can be easily 
removed to give the shoe a high shaft instead.
