The eyes are the window of one's soul, and it seems that this is the only way this lithe femme is able to express herself. Her eyes speak an epic novel of a calm hopelessness, whilst maintaining a touch of a smile on her lips. Which beckons the question: what is this secret passion that she lives for? Or is it a passion that has to remain as just that- a secret?

Noir is law

Melanie Huynh is sans rival, when it comes to styling in noir, being French... need I say anymore?

Homme pour la femme

I was sifting through and tfs when work was really slow last week, and I found myself being quite taken quite a handful of Men's collections!

Calvin Klein Homme S/S 2009

Although gray has usurped black as the hue due jour, I still love the colour (as I tend to shy away from IT colours) quite a bit! This baseball jacket in heather gray (gray, confettied with specks of white <3)>

Maison Martin Margiela Homme S/S 2009

I was never quite into MMM, but then his Homme collection has converted me! With every piece boasting his precise tailoring, the separates come together to present his biker-grunge aesthetic, which is really appealing, esp when fitted on a model, of course! Haha.
Richard Chai Homme S/S 2009

I daresay Chai was never on my radar before, but I guess now he is! I like the 80's references in this collection, what with the powder blue suit, combed back coiffs and classic plaid. Am totally digging the powder blue suit, esp if it can be unzipped>cropped!

Veronique Branquinho Homme S/S 2009

The male Henleys, cardigans and tanks here encapsulates an organic kind of French chic-ness. While my colour palette tends to contain B& W only these days, I'm contemplating adding red to the whole mixture, seeing how lively the colour is! And the pants in the first picture, looks like it'd be amazing for lazy days, when paired with a tank and cardigan. Think its DIY-able ... to my dad's closet it is!
