… & some more …

Oot kas ma kirjutasin eile, et mul on pastelliteemast kopp ees? Hahaa. Valetasin raisk.

Shelley on Las Vegases tegutsev kolorist ja ma reaalselt mõtisklesin, et kui nädalaks ajaks lähen juunis New Yorki, kas siis saan kuidagi Vegases ära käia :D Naine on endale ametinimeks pannud “blonde expert” mida ta täiega ka on, kas näete katkiseid juukseid? Kas näete kollakat läiget? Kas on üldse tunne, et need imesiledad karvad oleks eales keemilselt retsida saanud? Hullult hea on see Shelley selles mida teeb ja mis veel olulisem, retsilt hea silmaga, väga tihti kombineeritakse kirkaid juukseid kuidagi totakate futuristlike soengutega, kõverate tukkadega, raseeritud peakülgedega, värvid omavahel ei klapi ja nii edasi. Siin on aga kõik lihtsalt veatu, hull mutt. Ma hakkan vaimustusest nagu külajoodik juba rääkima.

Shelley is Vegas-based hairdresser & colorist and oh did I say that I was over pastels? I fucking lied bitches!

I’m going to New York for a week in June and I was even thinking, shit, maybe I can make a little trip to Vegas to see her while in US, just to the other side of the country you know :D This woman is so talented, so legit, true blonde expert as she calls herself. I don’t see any brassyness in the hair, I don’t see any breakage, hell it doesn’t even seem like it was chemically treated, it looks so damn natural, healthy and shiny, as if these girls literally own mermaid hair that grows from their skulls. I also have to give props for the taste level. It’s too often that colourful hair is cut into futuristic haircuts, diagonal bangs, some bad artsy shaved sides, poorly coordinated colours, but here’s there’s no sign of bad taste. I’m so excited about these pictures I’m swearing like a sailor!

me by mom, a thousand years ago

Ma olen ise ka olnud suhteliselt genderfuck sellest ajast peale kui kunagi lapsena sain aru, et ei pea mängima etteseatud reeglite järgi ja võin muunduda kelleksiganes kes ma tunnen, et elus olen või olla tahan. Lasnamäel hüüdsid vanamutid tänaval mulle järele “Noh oled poiss või tüdruk väh, issand kui imelik poiss”, aga mulle pakkus see segadus ainult rõõmu, sakutasin Mighty Ducks nokaka poisipeale lähemale ja astusin edasi. Nüüd võib siis paralleeli tuua modellidega kes mulle tavaliselt silma jäävad – Twiggyst Pashani. Androgüünsuses peitub mu jaoks sarnane võlu nagu kunstis, see miski mille üle pead juurdlema, ei saa päris aru, ei saa näppu peale panna, see on ilu. Igastahes värkse moelemmik Pasha on teie ees ja muretsege ise, kas ta on 9 kas ta on 20 kas ta on poiss kas ta on tüdruk, kesiganes ta on, on ta üks maagiline olend!
I’ve been somewhat genderfuck myself since I discovered that you don’t really have to play by the rules and might as well be whoever you want to be (surprise). Old ladies on the streets of our russian district screamed at me “are you a boy or a girl?!” I laughed at them and proudly tightened my Mighty Ducks cap closer to that short boy haircut. Now the fact that most of my fashion model crushes from Twiggy to Pasha are androgynous kind of ladies might something to do with that. But also the fact that mystery is always beautiful and when you can’t figure something out or put a finger on it, you experience something similar to an art katarsis. Anyways, meet my fresh model crush Pasha and try to figure out, is she 9 or is she 20 is she boy or is she girl, in any option, always magical!

ALL HAIL THE MONKEY QUEEN

Kuigi ma ei jõudnudki tänavu ERKI’st õigeaegselt blogida tuli ta ise mu juurde ühe favoriit kollektsiooni näol milleks on Elisabetta Silvestri THE YEAR OF MONKEY. Juhtus kuidagi nii, et need kostüümid olid tööasjus minu sõbranna Lucine käes ja ma sain neid laenata Disainiauhindade gaalale minekuks, vahel veab kah.

Mis on väga cool, et kogu selle dorkynessi ja mängulisuse juures mida need rõivaesemed endas kannavad on nad ka täiega kütuur vaibiga ehk siis tikitud-möllatud-läbilõeldud äärmiselt täpse sihiga, nimetaksin seda crazy couture.

Elisabetta on aga itaallanna kellele täiega meeldib Eestis ja kes võiski minupoolest siia jääda, kuid samas ma täiega näen talle tulevikku mistahes moemekas kus ta vaid ise sooviks :)

As I didn’t manage to cover the ERKI fashion show this time around it somehow came back to me in a magical way, like everything does. One of my favourite collections that’s Elisabetta Silvestri’s THE YEAR OF MONKEY got in hands of my friend Lucine and as I needed something to wear for the Estonian Design Awards gala I got lucky to loan it from her.

What I love about it is that next to the playful and dorky style you can clearly sense a couture vibe, everything is done detail by detail and with thought, I might just call it crazy couture.

Elisabetta is an italian lady currently residing in Estonia and loving it, as for me I’d like her to stay her forever, but at the same time I have a feeling that her designs may travel to wherever she desires.
