Some pictures I took in London, just the greatest place in the world.

Bambi for Oyster


Is this the most awesome editorial of Bambi or what? (I want it all and i want it now!)

If the royal dress hadn't been McQueen...

Happy friday! Finally the Royal Wedding has taken place and the dress was McQueen! (you can read my post of the dress in Vogue MX). Of course I loved the decision although I would have loved to see a little bit more theatricality in the dress but hey, it's royalty.

If it had not been McQueen, what would you have chosen it to be? From the last bridal collections here are my favorites and the ones I've definitely would have loved to see on Kate.

Vera Wang
The floral bodice, the volume and the tulle explosion 
in the hip would have made of this dress the perfect choice. 
A mixture between tenderness (the floral bodice) and risqué 
volume would have been a modern and avant garde choice.

Oscar de la Renta
Although this dress is strapless and Kate wouldn't have
wear something so naked the cut is just perfect. The
asymmetrical skirt and the silver ribbon detail in the
hip are just beautiful. Although the cut is quite
modern the design shows elegance and a unique

Monique Lhullier
Pleated bodice with V neck and a majestic skirt reminding
us of floral motifs. Certainly a design with enough balance to
be worn by future royalty.

This is definitely my favorite. It is what I would have imagined 
for a McQueen gown. The natural motifs in the bodice are just
bizarre and majestic at the same time and the fairy tale-volume 
of the skirt would have been perfect and a complete
delight to watch.

Working on...

Since I've been busier than expected I thought it would be fun to at least share with you what I've been working on. For my Psychology class (¿?) i have to do an animation soooo I thought what if I made a fashion animation in stop motion... Here are some of the stills... what do you think? Like my new Kurt Geiger grey/yellow platforms?

And by soon I mean Monday, when my vacation come to an end. 
Meanwhile you can check out my post in the Vogue blog about 
the street style of London (it's only in Spanish, sorry!). 
Hope you're having a terrific week too.

Think Pink. Nylon México

Styled by Jordy Huinder and photographed by Tony Solis, model Romy 
looks pretty in pink.  Her hair, the shoes, and the combinations 
with white and nude make this editorial 
one of my favorites of this year. Loved it!

Photos by me. 

Some pictures of very stylish people I had down deep in the archives. Finally they're here.  Loved the squared smokey eye of the first girl, she just had modeled for Ana Locking.

Lately I've been feeling like exploding.

Like my mind is a big nebula, full of thoughts,
but they're just colliding, destroying each other.

I try to canalize that explosion but it won't fade, it won't work. 
All ideas become one absurd blur.

Every little thought I have goes to wonder, is there something that remains new in this world? 
Is there something so innovative to amuse us anymore?

Maybe I'm just divagating, wandering in the verge of oblivion, where a thousand stars exist and two worlds meet. Just right ahead, the end of the world.

From the archives: Ana Locking FW11/12

Photos by me

Ana Locking FW 11/12

Apparently this post went to the bottom of the list for quite some time but here it is. In February I had the opportunity to go to one of my favorite designers' fashion show, Ana Locking, at Cibeles Fashion Week. I've always admired her use of color and the construction of a very geometric silhouette, her personal signature; her Fall/Winter 10 collection is a clear example of this and remains one of my favorites ever.

This collection (FW 2011-2012) named Stance was no exception of her impeccable use of geometry and colors, it was intended to be a collection that represented structure, elegance and posture. The runway started with coats and dresses in cobalt blue, light blue and camel with touches of grey. Men's jackets were flawless, having a straight silhouette, a theme that was recurrent in all of the collection. Antagonistic patterns followed, consisting in the contrast between light and bright colors, short and long proportions and flat and draped fabrics. Pale pink, mustard, crimson red and some iridescence pink were part of the palette.  Leather gloves, dark lipstick and squared smokey eyes gave the collection the classic winter touch. The collection was a clear example of the balance between chaos and order, a technique Ana has refined with time and has made her a very talented designer; the combination between fabrics, patterns and colors clearly formed a beautiful collection, one of the best of this Cibeles Fashion Week.
