Another Christmas wish (for the Christmas I’m not celebrating..)

I’ve drooled over these items for a couple of years now. And I’m still dreaming about them. So – where are you, o’ filthy rich stranger with an urge to spoil a Norwegian girl rotten with Atsuko Kudo garments? ;)


Atsuko Kudo – the ONLY latex haute couture designer

6 years ago I went to this little shop on Holloway Road in London, to get my wedding dress custom made. Little did I know then about all the fuzz this little lady would be making and that she would be featured in all the biggest fashion magazines 5 years later.

Atsuko Kudo designed my wedding dress, choker, hat and gloves. And even a pair of panties. All made in rubber, of course, with the most beautiful details!

Here’s a couple of pictures from our wedding. My hubby also wore custom rubber clothes, of course ;)

Since then, Lady Gaga has appeared multiple times in Atsuko Kudo. And every week I see a new garment in Vogue Paris, Vogue Italy, S Magazine, W Magazine, Tirade Magazine, Tush Magazine (and the list just goes on and on).

I think that Atsuko Kudo is the only haute couture latex/rubber designer worth mentioning. The others never quite succeed in making clothes that look like fashion/haute couture.

Steven Klein just did a series of photographs with Linda Evangelista for W Magazine. They’re super awesome! ;)


Jeremy Scott – Even Karl approves!

Now that we’re almost halfway through Oslo Fashion Week, I want to post some of the designs from Jeremy Scott. He’s an amazing designer who started his runway career in Paris and has since shown collections in Paris, New York, Los Angeles, London, Moscow and Seoul.

In 2008 he started a collaboratin with Adidas for a bunch of sneakers and apparel (i.e. the winged high tops and the teddy bear sneakers).

But when he designed the sneakers with shackles, he was met with criticism and was accused of racism. So Adidas decided to cancel the release of these sneakers.

He also made the futuristic stewardess outfit for Britney Spears in her music video “Toxic”.

He’s made magnificent pieces for all the biggest celebrities. Like the “Mickey Mouse”-suit Lady Gaga wears in the “Paparazzi”-video.

But I also love his runway work. Like these ones, which are from different collections.

Check out his collections here.

And if you should still be in doubt about Scott’s fashion cred, you’re part of a sorry dwindelling crowd: Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld has appointed Jeremy Scott as the only designer that could possibly ever succeed him as head designer for Chanel. So there! :razz:
