Damir Doma Accessories

Image

I am not one for posting about sales or daily deals, but it should be noted that one of my favorite labels, Paris-based Damir Doma, has much of its SS13 collection on serious markdown. Of particular interest are the accessories, which I always find is a frustrating exercise in striking the right balance between my personal taste (minimal, sleek and usually black), and my economic realities. Here are some of my favorite pieces currently on sale, you can see the entire collection of accessories here.

Fetishism in Fashion

Image

The many fashion fetishes that I, and many people I know harbor are far too numerous to list here, but we will soon have a book that may explain why and how these obsessions developed. Fetishism in Fashion, written by Lidewij Edelkoort, is a photo and essay collection exploring why some women will risk life and limb to teeter on an impossibly high heel and why a certain style of handbag, belt or other fashion object can bring on a sudden case of the vapors. I am personally looking forward to reading the chapters explaining the power of the color black and how our tastes evolve from birth to childhood. We all do it- come September 10, we can finally hope to understand why.
