remember Fiorucci? the memory of that company came flooding back to me through a conversation with a favourite Flickr friend of mine
Art and Ghosts. another Flickr-er had mentioned how the image she had created looked like the Fiorucci angels. the angels were the Fiorucci logo, and they [following link is NSFW and if you have delicate sensibilities don’t click] wore sunglasses for the eyewear line logo. i remembered my 1st trip to their store in Paris when i went there my 1st time to model, my 1st day in Paris. [a day that ended at Les Bains Douches, ducking out on overly champagned playboys, and being grabbed and kissed in the middle of the street by a man on a scooter, who then drove away?] they were such a sexy, bratty brand, all my friends loved it. i know i bought something that day, and i think it was a skintight bandage dress. sound familiar?

i found it on Etsy of course :) and happily await to add it to my collection.

i got a package in the mail! i’ve been looking forward to my compound dress and it arrived. i really really love Valerie’s work. she’s one of the reasons i started doing what i do with SWANclothing. i haven’t put it on yet, but i can say that the cotton feels so beautiful. the dress is tied in it’s own braided belt. and it came with a pile of gold stickers with a deer wearing a bit of birthday cake on it’s head. and one of Valerie and Ian’s [Valerian] beautiful cards. sorry my descriptive abilities are a bit lacking right now. all i can say is that everything is packed with brilliant sweetness and i can’t believe i am so lucky to have this.
more soon with the dress on…
