Goodbye Esprit/ Florals too much…/ Ausländer’s SS12/ Adrian Grenier SHFT Red Wine/ Upcoming Event PARKSHOW 2012

Goodbye Esprit

Walked by Esprit store today and found out that the Hong Kong based apparel company is closing all of their stores in North America. It made me cried a little. I always felt sentimental about Esprit. I grew up with them, and it's heart-breaking to see them go down hill like this, which mostly I believe was due to their bad creative direction and marketing. In the spirit of supporting my local (Hong Kong) products and the sentimental feeling. I made a final purchase from them here in North America.
Esprit. Thank you for all those fond memories in the past.

FLORALS…WAY TOO MUCH

I saw the new window display my friend did for Zara last week…it was FLORALS & FLORALS & FLORALS… 

MORE FLORALS in the March issue of Marie Claire Mag…
&…Stella McCartney...
&…Givenchy...
&…Prada...
I am sure you get the point. I know it's a spring and summer hit this year, but…anything else..? I did like them. All these florals "everywhere" now are starting to get boring & overwhelmed quickly. Just Saying.

THE ZOMBIE BOY & THE ANDROGYNOUS BOY COUPLE
These gents are everywhere in the fashion scene these days. The Zombie Boy, Rick Genest and The Androgynous Boy, Andrej Pejic; Two unique men are paired up for the Ausländer’s SS12 campaign. Not something super unexpected, but I still find this duo "once in a life time experience" feeling.
