Jewelry can be sweet, cute, romantic, sentimental, seductive, enticing and has a full and passionate history. It has has been given as a gift for centuries. Some jewelry is passed down generations, some given romantically or as a symbol of dedication and celebration.

It’s what everyone wants, men, women, my BFF gal pals, everyone I know.

My best friend loves personalized gifting. She adores giving custom pieces, gift baskets, cards, and simply adores bling. This year I want to give her something just as personal and beautiful. However, I am feeling a bit frugal but I do not want anything that looks frugal. I want something FABULOUS that screams I love you, without losing quality.

Thank you South Hill Designs!

Holiday Gift Guide! Do Not Resuscitate! #DNRBrands #BadAss #AlternaGuide #WhatYouWANT

Around the holiday season, I get e-mailed product information and great ‘stuff’ for gift guides. Occasionally I’m interested. Sometimes, if it is really good, I’m hit with a retail whack attack. This is one of those times.

Welcome to the awesomeness that is ‘DNR Brand’, or ‘Do Not Resuscitate’. The name alone get’s my inner grrr-girl going. It has enough bad ass product that it tickles my weird. I have an inner need to watch ‘Walking Dead’ and vampire movies about throat ripping beasts that don’t twinkle. This girl doesn’t just do Gaultier, she does gore.

Working both the yin and yang of lifestyle and fashion, I get to see some amazing art. This shirt, labeled ‘Cyborg West’, blew me away. No bad pun intended.

Seriously epic want.

With most companies, a t-shirt selections tries to prove their true worth in ‘horror a la Hell’s Angels’ style. So…you have some chick in a bikini with a gun on a tee. Boo yah yah, who cares?

At DNR they seem to understand that this is not just boring, but can be fixed. With this hot image called ‘Cyberlesque’.

Ha ha! Made you look. And you liked it.

I know that shirt’s can get bulky and some dude’s and chick’s don’t feel the clothing love. Often you may not know their size, and not everyone is a big fan of clothing.

For the discriminating friends and family in your life DNR Brands has a wide array of very cool, and original jewelry.

Still riding the metro rail of unsure? Well, then you have forced me to name drop. The creative minds behind this are none other than (cheesy drum roll) Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff.

Damien Hirst x Alexander McQueen Scarf Collab. Beauty in Nature #New #Beautiful #MustHave

amq-hirst_1118x620-1

I make no excuses, nor will I ever lie about my total and complete dedication to the House of McQueen. There is virtually nothing in their collections I do not covet.

The house of McQueen just released a new scarf collection. The collection features a collaboration with iconic artist Damien Hirst. Hirst’s career reigned supreme in the UK in 90s and continues to impress, and be iconic, in the art scene.

The new collection features a nature theme with symmetrical designs in the classic McQueen skull motif. Add the effervescent talent of Sølve Sundsbø who shot the collection AND directed an editorial video for the scarves. He is by far one of the great’s in the industry who constantly produces amazing photography. I am impressed with Burton, of the House of McQueen, to tap such amazing talent.

With such beautiful representation, I am in complete submission, and awe, of this collection.

Iris Van Herpen, Art in Fashion, 2013 Couture #Runway #Backstage

IMG_6823-kopieren1

If you haven’t witnessed the Couture shows in Paris, I suggest you start your education now. Fashion and art coincide in the most beautiful manner with designers such as Alexis Mabille, Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy and one of my all time favorites, Iris Van Herpen.

Iris van Herepen is not only a tented designer but is an artist with her couture line. each piece is not just unique but outstanding. Never garish and always chic she defines Haute Couture vision and represents everything it encompasses.

According to the writers at Wikipedia;

Iris van Herpen (born 5 June 1984) is a Dutch fashion designer. She studied Fashion Design at Artez Institute of the Arts Arnhem and interned at Alexander McQueen in London, and Claudy Jongstra in Amsterdam. In 2007, she started her own label. Since July 2011, she is a guest member of the prestigious Parisian Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, which is part of the Fédération française de la couture.

Iris is talented, and at a very young 29 years old is a beautiful and sometimes mad genius. Her couture is outstanding and always has a strange, creature like appearance. I am completely fascinated by her work and appreciate her sense of the odd and beautiful. Hopefully you will too. Here are some shots from backstage at the van Herpen show from the lovely Lea Colombo/Models.com.

Eric Benet New Video on Fashion Evolution “Music meets Style’ #Music #Fashion #Mens #Timeless

image001

Streetwear may be a the new black but Men’s fashion, in my eyes, will always be about timeless, key pieces and classic style. The fedora will be forever classy, the tie and bow-tie represent class and can be chosen to show personality, and the classic three-piece suit will always be the ultimate in being a dapper don.

Eric Benet is an amazing musician with a vision. He is also a believer in timeless fashion and style. So much that he took his vision a step further to make a new, amazing video called ‘Music Meets Style’ (just released on Esquire.com).

Filmed at The Brooklyn Circus, a high-end menswear store in New York, Eric included such style and fashion writer as Dapper Lou  of www.dapperlou.com, pop critic / writer Miles Marshall Lewis of EBONY.com, KJohn (KJohn La Soul), co-creators of Stuff Fly People Like Rae Holliday & Gabe, as well as Rog Walker of Huffington Post.

With a mesh of spoken word, sound and vision, Eric illustrates how his personal style has evolved and what it means to him. Creating a masterpiece of what timeless fashion is with song only creates beauty, and this video is just that. Well played Eric Benet, well-played.

Levi Mastro Art Event presented by @ScionAV

Lucky for us the ultra hip and cool people at Scion AV Have landed on our shores on the left Coast. why? Besides being ridiculously hip and in the know, they represent art, music and fashion at it’s best.

Recently they had an art reception for Urban AV artist Levi Maestro on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. Maestro moved to LA in hopes of starting a film career.

Maestro showcased his art spanning from 2006, when he came to Los Angeles to 2013. The artists brought out everything from limited edition run jackets, mugs to wall art and framed t-shirts.

Levi was joined by artist such as;

Anwar Carrots, Josh Peas, BJ The Chicago Kid, Dianne Garcia, Dom Kennedy, DJ SourMilk, Eli Reed, Gavin McNeil, George Wayne, Hayley Marie Norman, Javier Nunez, Jeff Staple, Kellen Roland, LEP Bogus Boys, Polyester the Saint, The Mac, Tino, Trashhand

The urbanesque art was really impressive and definitely repping LA proper. Levi is an amazing artist, and it was beyond PACKED. Despite the lack of breathing room everyone left happy, full of food and wine with something they loved (hats, shirts, watches, art), including our crew member Ms. Prince.

I was stuck at home with a brain full of NyQuil in fever land, but HUGE thanks to ScionAV for inviting HeathyrWolfe.com crew to this. We can’t thank ScionAV enough for inviting us to this showing of Levi’s work and talent.
