Did I say they had a Silent Auction? They did and I bid on a black Giorgio Armani T-Shirt valued at $675. Got it for $69. Still might sound like a lot for a plain black T, but it was fun to buy and the money goes to UCP.
Kicks of the Day
Added Bonus! Spotted these Pretty Rad Maison Martin Margiela Kicks at the event:
See you on the Streetz…Blog!
It’s about Midnight here in Honolulu on Sunday October 27th 2013 and I’m presently in London via the internet at the Maison Bentley Blog Paaardy! I stopped by the party earlier today, but when I saw the fancy yacht that the party is being held on I had to run back home to change out of my T-shirt, Shorts and Flip-Flops or as we call them in Hawaii-Slippers.
I Changed into my newest kicks from Marc Jacobs, a Tommy Bahama shirt to match them, my Harajuku T shirt to wear underneath, my Dolce & Gabbana plaid pants from Barney’s NYC and my streetzblog x CityStars Snapback.
I want to get back to the party quickly, thus I have everything I’m wearing in the capsule collection as seen above. (It’s much quicker to upload a capsule collection then one by one) Oh, and since it is past Midnight here, the Drink Departments are closed, Thus my bevie of choice for the evening is the Bob Marley Mellow Mood Sweet Tea as also seen above.
Thanks again to the Maison Bentley Style Blog for having this wonderful party. What a fun and Exciting idea. Cheers and Aloha from Makiki, Hawaii to London, England and to everyone else from around the World.
TWO Fun Fashion Funktions From NYC & London
Now thru August 14, 2013 PUNK: Chaos to Couture-Costume Institute Exhibition@ The Metropolitan Museum of Art-NYC
This exhibition features over 100 designs and takes you from the late 70’s thru 2013, showing Punks impact on High Fashion and Haute Couture. There are Seven galleries, 3 take you from London to New York and include Clothes for Heroes. The other 4 areas are DIY themes including: Hardware, Bricolage, Graffiti/Agitprop & Destroy. This looks like so much fun it may render a trip to NYC this Summer to check it out. You can also see a video on their site that explains the exhibit more in detail. Or you can check out some of the gallery views here.
July 10, 2013-February 16, 2014 Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980’s-Victoria and Albert Museum-London, England
You still have lots of time to check out this fabulous Fashion Exhibition. It features over 85 designs from the vibrant, bold & extremely influential 1980’s with clothes from John Galliano,Vivienne Westwood & Workers for Freedom amongst others. Celebrating New Wave, New Romantic and High Camp. I bet there will be plenty of Neon and I suspect the clothes will look a bit like reading an 80’s version of i-D and The Face magazines. If I were them I would sell “FRANKIE SAYS RELAX” shirts in the gift shops. I remember I had my own DIY shirt like this, it was an oversized white shirt that I wrote on with a big black magic marker. Here’s a picture of Mary Kate in her newer version of the shirt:
One of the outfits that is confirmed to be at this exhibition was that of Adam Ant. AA is actually coming to Hawaii September 14 for a concert at the Republik, I wouldn’t mind seeing and hearing “Stand and Deliver” here in my hometown. Better late than never.
