lako bukia's 'c u b a r t'

this coming tuesday, 29th June, i'll be lucky enough to represent amelia's magazine in taking a peek at the latest collection of the fresh new georgian talent that is lako bukia.

this exclusive event for press and buyers will be held at felicities designer showroom in shoreditch london and will present the 'c u b a r t' collection, inspired by the cubist movement - pablo picasso and russian theatrical costumiers in particular.

after seeing the lookbook on, the collection really seems to achieve what it says on the tin - depict cubism art through fashion.
shaping something famously 2D into 3D form, although taking note from russian costume designers of the cubist movement, would have been quite a challenge.

however, the perpendicular lines that are so striking throughout, the sharp contrast from black velvet to white wool, those big chunky cubic heels and even right down to those square black lips seems to pull the concept together seamlessly and with ease.

love these heels!

i am SO looking forward to seeing this intriguing collection up close, and maybe even seeing the talented lako bukia herself! :)

i'll report on my thoughts of the event, complete with tons of snaps, right here on PD.
happy saturday!

wait 'til you see my smile..

... on 22nd june when my exams finish and i am as free as a bird.
everything is so beautiful right now.
everything but those pesky revision files, staring at me twentyfour-seven.

once i can burn them (no, seriously) i can proceed in having a blissful summer.

selling jewellery, hunting down lammies cowboy boots in canada, eating mountains of chinese with my pa in vancouver, chilling with friends, spending heavenly days with my love, reading in the menorca sun.

these have been inspiring my latest project -
i'm thinking of a starting a small hand-made jewellery business, inspired by the beautiful islands of polynesia in the pacific.

think bone, leather, coral, wood, shells, feathers, wood, teeth & coconut.
the ball's already rolling, so watch this space :)
