Hedi Slimane Thinks Lindsay Lohan Still Matters

I’d been breathing a sigh of relief lately because I thought we were almost rid of Lindsay Lohan. Sure, she’s still gossiped about, I thought, but she’s on the fast track to Z-list/Paris Hilton status. Well, apparently Hedi Slimane does not agree. The famed photographer has her plastered all over his Fashion Diary like she’s important or something. Why is he still fascinated? And I just wrote about it, so does that mean I’m still fascinated?

And is Lindsay wearing a jacket but no pants? I’m so confused.

The Rodarte Fall 2009 line was amazing, but did you expect anything else from the newly-minted golden children of fashion? The thing that really caught my eye about their line–and is probably the must have shoe for fall–were the Rodarte thigh-high boots. Seeing the boots come down the runway in grey and black left me utterly speechless.

Lois Lane Vintage reconstructs vintage pieces, “tailoring and tweaking” pieces from the 1940-80s and making them present-day pretty with new necklines, buttons and whatnot.  Pieces are gathered from London to New York, and while I don’t love everything, there are some really great standouts.  Good prices, too.

One of the lines that caught my eye at London Fashion Week Fall 2009 was Cooperative Design. The knitwear designers Fall 2009 show featured slouchy sweaters, loud stripes and colors galore. There line seemed to jump out at you and definitely was one of the more exciting lines being shown so far.

polarwallet_main1I was just introduced to Frozen Pea Accessories the other day, and I kinda fell hard for a lot of the stuff on the site. The line was created by Alberta May Poon, who started Frozen Pea in 2006, and after interest grew beyond friends and local shops she expanded onto the worldwide web. The line is carried in stores across the US and overseas but can also be ordered online here

London Fashion Week Fall ’09: Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony

“My references are all over the map, from skinheads to Connecticut kids to St. Mark’s Place.” says Chloe Sevigny about her latest collection for Opening Ceremony. The line is a unisex venture, made for guys but scaled down to fit girls.

Lots of bold print, voluminous silhouettes, high waists, and even a modern-day James Dean-esque red jacket.  I had my eye on those grey trousers on the mustached fellow until I remembered I can’t wear pleats.
