Spring has sprung! Dressing for the warmer months…

I just found this fabulous site called 2threads and I’ve fallen in love with a blurb they’ve written on spring fashion. Of particular note are the stunning colours that are hot at the moment: lemon, navy, burgundy and grey. Of particular note are the trends this season which include brogues, lace, ladylike dresses and gorgeous prints. This site is a must for keeping an eye on all things fashion.

Portrait of Elsa Schiaparelli

Portrait of Elsa Schiaparelli, 1932. Courtesy of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Hoyningen-Huen/Vogue.

Elsa Schiaparelli was a contemporary of Dali, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp and other artists before she adopted fashion as her principal expression. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York held a recent exhibition in her honour titled, Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada: Impossible Conversations at the Costume Institute, Met Museum. Love to see this exhibition here in Australia!

MISS MOSS hearts Monster Threads

Times have changed since we first started in 2008. Back then we exclusively designed and manufactured our own garments, jewellery and bags. It was an exciting time. We wholesaled to a bunch of stores in Australia and NZ and built our online store. Today things are different. We don’t wholesale anymore, we sell our designs exclusively via our retail store, website and hardtofind. We still design our own items, but have added other brands to the mix. These brands include: Monster Threads, Polka Luka, BrooklynLoveDesigns, Fabulous Vintage among others. By embracing our new friends we have become greater than the sum of our parts. These additional brands offer our business ingenuity, creativity and a wider variety for our customers. Onwards and upwards. Below are some images of some of the many Monster Threads stores in Australia and New Zealand…We simply adore their products.

Fashion Notes: The colour pink

Pink. Not everyone loves it. But I think it’s frivolous, fun + fabulous! It reminds me of cupcakes, iced VoVo’s (remember those biscuits?!) It can be gawdy but it is ultimately very girlie. I “heart” pale pink cardigans, deep fuschia lipstick and quirky pink accessories. Pink polka dotted bows are delicious in blonde hair. Pink blush does wonders for pale cheeks. And as for pink flowers, well don’t even get me started. Love you MISS MOSS xxx

Fashion Notes: Worst Dressed Grammies 2012

Goodness gracious me! What were these people thinking when they rocked up to the Grammy’s 2012? My guess is they thought that if they couldn’t be the hottest they should be the weirdest. I guess they get more PR whichever way they look. Some of these examples (such as the bright yellow number, pictured below) appear as if the wearer has wrapped themselves in a shower curtain, while others look more costume shop than high-end soiree. You be the judge. Which do you think is the worst outfit of the Grammies 2012? It all looks a little bit oopsie-daisy to me!

Minaj hit the red carpet in a red silk Little Red Riding Hood-inspired ensemble made by Versace. Her date was dressed up as the Pope.

Singer Sasha Gradiva was another tragic example of red carpet attire gone wrong. The Russian-born singer, who is an emerging artist on the dance-pop scene, opted for weapons along with her pink prom gown dress. The gaudy accessory was an eyesore. Other artists who missed the mark included Fergie and Rebecca Black. Fergie, who does get credit for her Haute Couture taste, opted for a completely see-through neon orange lace ensemble by Jean Paul Gaultier (seen below). Though the piece might have looked amazing on the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week runway, it did not translate on the red carpet. Her black granny panties certainly raised eyebrows.

Is this yellow outfit a shower curtain or a dress? And as for this woman's drip of a partner. Where exactly did he find his completely tasteless ensemble? And will he be brave enough (or silly enough) to wear it again?

Golden cape made with silk from a million spiders

A cape made from the silk of 1.2m Golden Orb spiders from Madagascar will be on display at the V&A in London this month. This glorious creation took eight years to create and uses fabric not woven in more than a century. The hand-woven textiles are naturally golden in colour. The cape was made by Simon Peers and Nicholas Godley. For more go to The Guardian.
