Meet dino shoes!

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

i was at the avenues with the family and spotted those dino shoes!! unbelievable!! i wouldn't wear them not in a million years!! what was even more surprising is the way the lady was walking, the discomfort was so apparent i am sure she was swallowing her pain just to make a statement!

Would you wear that?

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

there's a french saying that goes "les gouts et les couleurs ne se discutent pas", or tastes & colors cannot be discussed - though i respect that saying, i couldn't but stop at these hilarious blazers at centerpoint salmiya - man, that's like clown clothing... austin powers minus the kitsch!

i'm sure there is a market for such jackets, so i apologies if i am offending someone's taste - but that is certainly something i wouldn't wear, unless on halloween...

may be i should surprise my wife with one of these!! price? 45 kd.. impact? priceless!

Franklin and Marshall soon at The Avenues

Friday, September 9th, 2011

last month we posted news on custo barcelona closing down and one of our fans, pat, commented that franklin and marshall will be taking its place - you were spot-on pat! thanks for the tip and thanks to moe for sharing the picture.

about f&m: franklin & marshall was founded in 1999 on the intuition of 2 young entrepreneurs, giuseppe albarelli and andrea pensiero, who since then have transformed their ambitions, skills and ideals into a successful brand that is well known for its college-vintage influenced design.

from the choice of name to the choice of staff, from the headquarters to the collections themselves, the operation is based on a solid ethical foundation - business decisions, whether they are about product design, distribution or marketing, are guided by the founding principles of respect, morality and a sense of belonging - f&m’s workers are young, dynamic and come from a variety of international backgrounds and the company headquarters is a specially renovated early 19th century factory which maintains intact original architectural features.

Pants or no pants? that’s the super question

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

a big debate is happening over the new superman’s suit - whilst the producers have released 2 pictures of the hero on set, one with and one without the red pants, it is still unclear whether superman will go commando or not - though he looks odd with pants, i do prefer him to stick with the authentic attire, superman without the red pants is simply not superman - what do you think?

Why is Burberry giving me the finger?

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

i am not a burberry client as i cannot afford it, but i was at marina mall with a couple of friends and we decided to walk in and check their collection - one of the interesting items was a scarf, wrapped around the middle finger of a hand mannequin - i was intrigued, so i asked the salesman about this weird display and he kind of laughed - then i asked him about the price and he said 180 kd! i didn't believe him at first, so i checked the price with my own eyes and it actually read 180 kd!

suddenly it all made sense... i turned to the salesman and told him: now i realize why the hand is giving me the finger!

Friday, August 26th, 2011

burberry launched “body”, a feminine and sensual fragrance that captures the iconic spirit of the brand, with a special combination of ingredients like, green absinthe, freesia, and illuminating peach, natural rose, iris, and sandalwood, woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, sensual amber, and musk.

designed by chief creative officer christopher bailey, the bottle itself is a multi-faceted, iconic glass bottle with rose gold engraved check and made with the same craft, intensity and modernity of the classic trench coat.

rosie huntington-whiteley was chosen to represent the brand, her effortless style and her staggering beauty made her the natural choice as the first burberry body.

this is the behind the scenes tvc, though i’m not a big fan of rosie.

14 fashion brands may be harming your fertility

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

it's sad how nothing can be trusted anymore, not even a pair of jeans or an underwear - according to greenpeace, traces of toxic chemicals that may harm your reproductive organs were detected in products of fourteen major garment manufacturers - among the brands in question: adidas, calvin klein, h & m, abercrombie & fitch, lacoste, converse, and ralph lauren.

following this publication, brands puma and nike have agreed to eliminate their entire manufacturing process toxic chemical by 2020, but what to do until then? more on this here.

Abercrombie & Fitch bans buying “too many” clothes

Monday, August 15th, 2011

a 33-year-old californian woman, who wears abercrombie & fitch almost exclusively, received an email from the company's head office informing her that it would no longer be accepting any future orders from her.

abercrombie & fitch, which has since lifted the ban on mrs navarra's account, argued that its actions were part of a system in place to protect the brand against customers that buy and re-sell product on websites or ship large quantities to other countries.

but the system is sometimes triggered based on order history and mrs navarra’s history shows that the woman was not buying multiples of the same item, so most probably she was victim of a major system error here!

if i were her i would ask for a compensation, say a year’s wardrobe?
