Two days ago me and P. went to see Melissa auf der Maur, not only on stage, but also on screen. Before the gig we got a showing of her movie “Out of Our Minds”. (Actually we could watch it twice, Melissa was so kind to show it again for the people who missed the first minutes). She made the 28-minute film in 2009 together with director Tony Stone. It’s a strange little film, that doesn’t have a clear storyline. That’s not a bad thing, actually I thought about the film many times afterwards. I’m not going to tell a lot about it, go try to watch it sometime (or watch the trailer below…).
The last couple of days I’ve been visiting the Topshop website daily, because I expect the Kate Moss ss2010 collection to be online very soon. But to my surprise the only collection to be found are some f*****g t-shirts!
The shirts are part of a collection of jersey basics: tops, tees, and shirt-dresses in white, olive, baby blue and pale pink. All off them have simple details like patch pockets and rivets.
The strange thing is, I’ve never had any problems with finding good and affordable basics. Plain white t-shirst can be found anywhere, so I don’t get the point of this collection. But hey, I’m sure the Kate Moss tag will sell lots!
Oh yes, yes, yes, sometimes the silliest things can make me extremely happy. Like watching the new movie trailer for Sex and the City 2. It’s got Aidan! Liza Minelli! And ridiculous outfits! (I’m talking about Samantha’s red dres…) Enjoy!
Shocking news today: the legendary Malcolm McLaren died yesterday in Switserland, 64 years old. His influence on music and fashion is immense. Without him we would never ever have heard of the Sex Pistols, Adam Ant and Bow Wow Wow, SM- and bondage gear as regular wear wouldn’t be mainstream, we wouldn’t shop at his sons store Agent Provocateur or at his ex-girlfriend Vivienne Westwood, Madonna could never have used the “Waltz Darling” imagery for her song “Vogue”, and the list goed on and on and on…
Some personal McLaren favorites:
The Great Rock ‘n’Roll Swindle – Trailer (1980)
Malcolm McLaren -Madame Butterfly (1984)
Malcolm McLaren & The Bootzilla Orchestra – Waltz Darling (1989)

Remember this post about the Zac Posen collection for Target? It seems the collection gets promoted by the band The Like. I loved the way Alexander McQueen involved the looks of Leila Moss of the Duke Spirit is his Target collection, and it seems Zac Posen does the same with the ladies from The Like. The promo video, directed by Gia Coppola (yes, family of), shows The Like in their hotel room getting ready for a show, then later performing onstage. Check out the sixties vibe of the video:
