to russia with love



to celebrate the tenth year anniversary of vogue russia, a total of thirty one designers were commissioned to design their very own matrioshka. that world famous russian dolls that hides up to seven smaller, duplicate figures inside it. which i think is the cat's meow and is pretty fuckin' rad and so on point with the whole shindig. personally my favorite is the martin margiela and the giles deacon one. it was really fun guessing who did who. although i will admit that since there were a few lesser known russian designers involved with this project, i didn't get a perfect score. which is also extremely tempting me to start buying russian vogue because there are some pretty dope russian designers and they actually have some pretty dope editorials. but i don't think i can afford yet another hit on pocket monthly seeing that i've gone by way of eating spam and mr. noodles to satisfy my hunger. but anyways, if y'all want to know who did what then just click on the picture. sometimes i wish these sorta things don't just come in limited edition and actually get mass marketed because i really want to collect them all. you know, like g.i. joes or thundercats action figures.
and on a totally different note. at around midnight i saw some people already camped out outside the h&m at the eaton center for the CDG launch tomorrow. for someone who is about to experience the hullabaloo that happens when the door opens for one of those things for the very first time, they're in for the shock of their life. those things gets proper mental. actually i might as well just tell you the story. so a couple of years ago when viktor and rolf collaborated with the retail giant, i was there when the store opened and there was this giant of a woman who literally shoved her way through the door and almost knocked out the president of h&m canada who opened the doors for the occasion not thinking about the stampede that was to happen when you let it in about over a thousand people who's been waiting outside the cold for hours. this women then basically ripped the whole wall down and stripped everything bare and finally realized that she is holding way way way too much stuff and it was getting impossible for her to move. she being the crazy woman that she was, she flopped down, i'm not even exaggerating, a good fifty garments on the floor and just laid on it so no one could touch it. eventually since she was blocking the whole aisle a poor worker had to assist her and carry most of her garments while she grabbed even more stuff. now this is where it gets even funnier. the viktor and rolf collection only went up to size fourteen, and this behemoth of a woman was seriously not a size fourteen...not even close.

i'm glad we share a similar aesthetic, Roybot. I too immediately chose the designs of margiela and deacon...

Bludgeon me with those spikes already...
