McQuantum Physics

Some things in life are truly difficult to understand:
Quantum physics.
How endless the universe is.
Why people can kill one another so effortlessly.
What the guys on the stock market are yelling.
Why Alexander McQueen is such a great designer.
Okay, the last one might be a slight exaggeration but still! I'm feeling the McFever like never before lately and his McQ FW09-10 collection isn't exactly curing me. See for yourselves, but don't expect me to foot your doctor's bills!

Time to CHOOse!

As most of you already know, the exclusive label - known for their coveted women's shoes -Jimmy Choo has designed a collection for H&M, which hits the stores this Saturday(14 november)!
So of course you'll go out camping in front of an H&M near you to accompany your girlfriend, sister, best friend etc. who all have been sleepless for a week now and are totally spaced out on coffee and energy drinks so they can be the first to get those killer heels, even if they have to 'dispose of' any other suitors. But no need for such selflessness. The few pieces in the collection for men are just as cool, so why not pick up a few things for yourself? There might be a few truly fashion-dedicated fellows out there who will stomp on you to get that jacket or duffle bag first, but generally the men's side is less frantic than the women's.
So get set and go because there is absolutely no time to waste!
There are a few shopping rules and limitations to take into account, which you can find here .
Happy camping!

Stockholm Syndrome

This doesn't happen very often, but I love almost every single piece in the Filippa K autumn/winter '09 collection.
The cuts are clean, fuss-free and you can just see - and probably feel - the quality of the fabrics. The Swedes know a thing or two about fashion, and this collection to me epitomizes Swedish style: not too flashy or over the top, just simple and classic lines but with a modern twist.
As The Zoe would say: 'I die'™.

Halloween in McQueen

Some of you went all-out yesterday and still have the make-up residuals plus candy and alcohol indigestion to remind you of it.
Some of you gave this 'consumerist pagan atrocity' the proverbial finger and did absolutely nothing.
Costumes are a big part of this festivity, but why not keep the spooky spirit alive throughout the Halloween weekend?
Today, look scarily stylish in Alexander McQueen.
