I love nintendo, I really do. For many years it replaced friends in my life and to a degree it still does. Also, I look extremely graceful playing the Wii, it’s like a dance. Anyway…the holy grail of Nintendo titles for me has always been the Legend of Zelda. From NES, to gameboy, to SNES, to N64, to Wii and everything in between it’s fucking amazing. The story’s heroine is Zelda, princess of Hyrule. She keeps pretty busy you know, protecting the triforce and helping defeat that jerkoff Ganon. So clearly you’re not dealing with a girl content to wait for some prince to rescue her, she means business.

Good Tuesday morning to you all. I hope you’re enjoying your week thus far as we continue to celebrate the fast approaching release of Deathly Hallows. Good god, I was in the seventh grade when the first book came out and now at nearly 25, I can’t contain my excitement. Yesterday, I received quite a few requests for Professor Trelawny…so, like…here she is. Professor Trelawny is the perfect representation of that oddball teacher that we’ve all had before—a little eccentric, endearingly enthusiastic and somewhat mad. Naturally, eccentric enthusiastic madness means awesome clothes. Enjoy.

after the last couture season, i started seeing parallels between pokemon and some of the pieces on the runway-check the post. the resemblances were pretty striking, particularly the givenchy jigglypuff ensemble. anyway, now that fall 2010 couture has ended i present to you the pokemon couture.
couture, i choose you!
1: givenchy and mewtwo: pretty much all of givenchy reminded me of mewtwo and mew. the bone detailing and silhouettes scream legendary and scientifically bred pokemon.
2: valentino and gastly: i hate the ghost pokemon but the tulle layer over this dress reminded me of gastly right away. the model’s eyes look similar to his too. wierd.
3: elie saab and charizard: the bat wing sleeves and print made this an easy choice. charizarrrrddd
4: chanel and bulbasaur: karl lagerfeld skinned an ivysaur and made a dress. boom.
5: christian dior and vileplume: the floral collection galliano sent out had plenty of pokemon references (particularly grass pokemon, duh) but this violet and magenta number shouted vileplume like none other.
till next couture season.
sidenote: i stick with the original 151 pokemon, old school.
john galliano a/w 2010
thoughts: i mean, galliano is right up there with mcqueen and haute couture houses that you just don’t try and make sense of. so i’ll just say that the suiting he showed in this sherlock holmes inspired collection was actually quite nice, great texture and fit. and then shit just got crazy from man corsets to kimonos. but that’s galliano for ya.
who hasn’t played marco polo in the pool at the rec center, backyard or at the country club? precisely, nobody. everybody knows the name but the history and the story behind the man are often misinterpreted. marco polo came from an italian merchant family and was very well off. his youth was spent in venice with his aunt and uncle and at about the age of seventeen he began his great adventures with his father and uncle to the east. carrying letters between europe and kublai khan the group became allies of mr. khan and it is often speculated they grew to hold government positions in the east. there were many duties assumed and adventures overseas but the greatest accomplishment of marco polo and his father and uncle were linking east and west. of course, travelling between the two could take years. as such, marco would have to dress for travel (much like i did this past weekend) and layer up. also, none such collection was more fitting for spring 2010 as galliano’s menswear lineup.
