Dior silver suit – Yay or Nay?

By admin on April 16th, 2008

diorsilversuit.jpgFirst things first – why are the pictures on Yoox.com of such poor quality? They make Asos.com’s pictures look like a Rankin masterpiece. I wouldn’t usually complain about these things, but when it comes to this Dior Homme silver suit, you need high quality pictures to make a decision.

I’m in two minds about this suit, hence the yay or nay question. The first problem is the functionality of this piece. Unless you were an musician you would have nowhere to wear it to. It’s too flashy for work and too sharp for a casual night out. While it seems to be aiming to be worn by Kanye West, its closer to a Graham Norton outfit.

On the other hand, who cares about functionality? If you’ve established yourself as a leftfield dresser, you could easily wear this to work without anyone batting an eyelid. Well, they probably would bat an eyelid, but only because they were dazzled by the brilliance of your suit.

So what is it to be? Yay or Nay? Like a Beijing Olympics participant, I’m remaining firmly on the fence.

WTF? Golden Goose “Buckle Closure”

By admin on February 29th, 2008

GoldengooseI’m sorry but what the hell is this? It looks like some sort of bridle. Like something Maggie Gyllenhaal would’ve worn in The Secretary.
I love that Yoox are just like “It’s a buckle closure. You want more information? It’s brown and it’s a gift idea”. And when you look at the ‘More Images’, they just show it unbuckled. Yeah, that’s what I’m curious about, how the buckle works.

There’s only one of them so it can’t be for shoes. Perhaps it’s for luggage. What the hell is it? Am I being thick?
It’s only £18 so maybe I’ll get one anyway and see what happens. I can wear it speed-dating. Kinky!
