Ain’t no secret that I love the intersection of the beautiful with the strange. Which makes the photo-manipulation and traditional work of Natalie Shau something that really hits home with me.
Alice in Wonderland inspired works:
Origami with drape. It makes me love the asymmetric sleeves.
Leather. Chiffon. Like wearing a leather jacket over a cocktail dress without the fuss and bother.
Pouf sleeve! But what I really love is the leather patches on shoulders, underarms, and elbows, the inky blue, the cutaway front, and the three front pockets.
The sum of it’s parts make up for a kickass whole.

Leather sheath, perfect built-in belt, what is not to love?
Luxury-with-a-wink is something I adore. White gold paperclip-like animal pendants with gemstone eyes? Totally fits the bill.
Cripes, the fall 2010 DVF collection is killing me. My latest love is the biker dress. The snap collar and the piping on the elbows, yoke, shoulders and belt? Dear Christ.
I’m ambivalent about most of the pieces in this capsule collection, but, hot damn, the jacket with the contrast piping and zipper details, and shirt with the crazyass shoulders? Kill me with the want.
Paper. Swear. To. God. Flexible and water resistant. I feel like I am living in the future.
