It’s rather obvious that I’ve been away from things for a while, first with travelling, then with moving house, then waiting to get internet connected (a month without!!), and finally getting a new puppy. Sometimes there are more important things to do than spend time on the internet, yanno?
But as things have setlled down, I’ve found myself with a little breathing time, and am playing catch-up with blog-reading, retail shopping and finding inspiration. Checking out Luisa Viaroma, I drooled over this amazing dress from Gareth Pugh. I’ve always loved the futurist/armour look, and in matt black it is much more subtle than the shiny silver slashed dress and leggings of his earlier collection. The jacket is there too – and also out of the reach of mere mortals pricewise – but each of them is SO wearable!
Moving on from one type of fab panelled garment to another, Artifice Clothing has an exciting new range of cyber panelled pvc clothing with trim that glows in the dark! There are corsets, shrugs, bra tops, collars and wrist cuffs to complete the look. White shows the glow-in-the-dark nature really well, but black always has a classic look – see for yourself!
See the website for more covered up options as well.
For the guys, there’s always SDL which has been doing cool armour clothing for years. Like these tops:
The bug panelled bodices for both genders are also very cool:
If panelled bodices/vests with shoulder pads are more your thing, for a Mad Max look, try these babies:
And now, for more panelled-clothing drooling…..
