Check It: Anna Dello Russo for H&M

9 Sep

If you’ve delved in the fabulous world of fashion, you’ve probably at some point stumbled across the eccentric and amazing style (and life) of Vogue Japan editor-at-large Anna Dello Russo.

The lovely creature that is her delights in the creative opportunity that is personal style, and can be regularly be spotted on some of the internet’s top fashion blogs.

It comes at no surprise then that she would eventually join forces with the flagship of fast fashion H&M to create / curate a collection based on her own closet – an accessory collection that will be hitting stores (and online) around the world on October 4th, 2012.

While this should be enough to send the calmest fashionista/sto (that’s a thing, right?) into fits of affordable joy, H&M and Anna decided to push it over the edge and over the top by releasing this music video… this music video that is about to be stuck in your head all day.

I love it. Are you ready to take a fashion shower?

So if you have any ties within the human race, you know that right now the 2012 Olympic games are going down in London, England. Every day my house is greeted with footage of amazing feats of physical and mental fortitude being displayed by the Olympians, save a few choice badminton teams, and I’m increasingly inspired to go out and try to learn something/anything half as well as these athletes know their sport(s).

The athletes aren’t the only things rising to the occasion though. Brazillian Artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo, in collaboration with Hungry Man production company, have erected a labyrinth made up of 250,000 books as part of the London 2012 Festival. Footage of the labyrinth project, called aMAZEme, as well as footage of the public’s interaction with the space, will be posted on the aMAZEme site [site to be published at a later date]. As well as the fun and pure art of interacting with the structure, there will also be touch screens posted around the formation for visitors to search and read content, as well as daily performances by literary figures.

I think I just nerdgasmed.

The structure is based around a basic rendering of the fingerprint of J. L. Borges, an Argentine writer who’s works focussed on dreams, religion, mirrors, libraries, and (you guessed it) labyrinths.

The exhibit will be up for viewing until the 26th of August in the Southbank Centre Clore Ballroom. If any of you lovelies happen to be in that area A) you should go, and B)  I hate you. Find out more about the event through London Festival‘s website.

For those of us continentally challenged, we must satiate ourselves with this amazing video of the labyrinth’s construction. Le sigh.
