I’ve been rather hush-hush on the Resort collections. There’s been a lot grabbing my attention (looking at you Gucci and Valentino), but I just wasn’t ready to jump on my blow horn. Then one of my low-key favourites wowed me with some crazy prints, fish skins, and sustainable fashion. Osklen, you have my heart.
Roughly 400 years ago, I discovered a little brand called Black Milk. They’re Australian nylon whisperers who might be just as nerdy as me. If you haven’t jumped on board their train of cool, you’ve been missing out on some of the coolest things ever.
I have a tendency to err on the side of goth. That’s no secret. Even when I’m dressed like a rainbow, my quietness and permanent scowl tend to give off a darker vibe. Finding new ways to up the gothic ante is always fun, especially with Lazy Oaf.
Normally movie stars do not impress me, especially in the realm of fashion. They are the product of stylists, makeup artists, and teams of people plotting their every move. It makes me yawn. Express yourself by yourself. Helena Bonham Carter is one of the rare exceptions. She is the last English Rose of her kind; a real gothic beauty. When you see her it is usually in one of two modes; crazy cat lady with wild hair, or creepy Dickensian queen of all that is macabre. This editorial definitely falls into the latter category.
Her’s is a brand of ladylike primness that even I can get behind. It’s darker, weirder, and a tad bit scary. She never quite left the Marla Singer character behind because it was her. It’s like she’s a product of every part she’s ever played; corpse bride, pie-baking murderess, psychopathic witch, and of course, the real-life Miss Havisham.
We touched on my pin obsession before, so I was obviously thrilled when my boyfriend decided to launch Lithium Press. I even get to help because I’m a treasure trove of completely bonkers ideas! Oh boy, oh boy. If that’s not enough for ya, how about a Mollociraptor x Lithium Press collaboration…
