Comme des Garcons' Black NYC SO Almost Here!

Word on the street is that Rei Kawakubo's brilliant answer to the recession will be popping up in New York City June 22nd on 10th Avenue and 17th Street. I'm thinking the Black bridge line store will be just as awesome as that time she collaborated with H&M except slightly more spendy with way less lines out the door because a) it's more spendy, and b) it's sooo faaaarrr uptown, wah. Still, I am totally in the mood for a distressed blazer and some more harem pants, aren't you? Exciting. Let's do this.

Feeling Right Now: Turquoise Pants

Phoebe Philo's new Celine resort collection is clean and simple: confident, effortless, lots of khakis and blues and a smashing tuxedo jacket done up in what appears to be sweatshirt material. Sweet! These pants caught my eye because who the hell sends aquamarine pants down the runway. It's totally working here, although I suspect this might be one of those moments where it's all about the model. Still, love those black details. In my quest for green-ish blue pants I came across these teal Cheap Monday jeans, $62, and I know they're a BIG departure (read: trashy cousin) from Celine's crisp trousers but kind of fun, no?

Slacking the Night Away

A few of you have noticed that I've been style slacking harder than ever (and by slacking I mean not posting), and for that I apologize. I don't have a great excuse either, my only alibis being new job/(s) and traveling to more weddings than anyone should ever have to in one summer and being real busy-like in general. Meanwhile, my better half Shya Scanlon is kicking internet ass with his awesomely epic Forecast 42 project and I think he's even tweeting (twating? whatev's) and shit now. Amazing and if you like mind-blowing fiction that punches you in the teeth and makes your chest burn (in a good way), check it out.

Come to think of it, Violet has really let her blog go, too. What can I say she's been real busy as well.
