Norisol Ferrari F/W 2010

Posted in fashion & style by mafiahunt on July 22, 2010

Norisol Ferrari designs are created from skin soft leathers and furs, with a mysterious look. Something you may find Nosferatu wearing, in a modern interpretation. A Jacket or coat, may cover and protect you as a wearable blanket or a piece of soft armor.

“Independent of trend or novelty, Norisol Ferrari’s creations are painstakingly conceived and flawlessly executed.  At the core of Norisol’s bespoke collection of outerwear, lay the classic principles of men’s tailoring. The effect is one of perpetual glamour: these are heirlooms, designed to be cherished for years to come. Each one unique, her garments are, in Norisol’s words,  ‘nobly weighted’, that is, all of the materials incorporated into her designs are intentional and purposeful, bringing together the elements of warmth, function and sophistication.”

Here are some Images from Ferrari’s very elegant look book:

Norisol Ferrari ‘alvarez’

‘sofia’

‘mademoiselle’

‘Dawn’

‘beagy’

‘Amelia’

“Mari” (my personal favorite)

Grunge by Steven Meisel

Posted in fashion & style, photography by mafiahunt on July 18, 2010

I still love this 1992 editorial shot by Steven Meisel. I even remember when it appeared in vogue. My sister was soberly describing  “what grunge was” to my parents. She used a photo of Naomi Campbell dressed in plaid and stripes as an example. Pushing it in my parents face. They just nodded and went “O.K, yeah we get it now”.
