Snake HELP?!

Where ever I turn or look I keep on seeing snake inspired clothes however, can't seem to get enough of them. The alien like patterns, the bight juicy colours and Egyptian feel creates a reptile feeling waiting to unleash inside of me. See the best below:

This picture comes from Vogue Germany February. Even though this has nothing to do with what I wrote before I had to show you this as I can not get over how cool the picture was. But maybe I could say it relate it as the jacket has a sort or snake texture. Anyway, the jacket is like a cross between a military jacket and ripped leather jacket making the combo look edgy and modern. LOVE IT!

In memory of Alexander McQueen 1960 – 2010

Words can not describe his creative impacted on the fashion world. He always came out with something new and different. Just when you think he could not have thought of something new and better he always surprised us. The fashion industry was so lucky to have such a talented, unique designer.

My favourite McQueen moment:

Autumn / Winter 06
Kate Moss appears as a giant hologram above the catwalk, GHOSTLY!

Spray paints - McQueen get models down and dirty!

Fall 06 Studded, edgy, gothic ...est...dress!

And who can forget his gigantic Monster Inc like shoes?

Are you a WARRIOR?

Every piece in Jean Paul Gaultier collection had been complexly weaved or structured to create a rough warrior look. However, at the same time the neutral colours used on each garment mixed with the weave technique and the paper shape leaves brings a more natural or pure element to the harsh exterior of the warrior style. Creating this unusual but inspiring, edgy and calm appearance.

Designer Inspiration:
As soon as I saw Jean Paul Gaultier collection I immediately thought of Rodort. As one of the dresses they produced are similar to Jean Paul Gaultier design as they are both are shaped the same way; weaved with strings hanging loose at the bottom making both of the models look like they go on forever!
But as one can easily tell Jean Paul Gaultier is a much neater version of Rodort design.
