Check It: Neon Pegasus

24 Sep

While the title and animation might at first deceive you into thinking this is a song made for the mocking, Neon Pegasus by Parry Gripp (and art by Sarah Hampton) by will quickly change your mind… and then stay there for 2-3 days on end.

Sometimes you just need to be unabashedly positive and upbeat about something [especially with 8AM classes], and how can you not when hearing about the amazing victory over the Gummy King’s gluten-powered armada?

Enjoy.

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?

Fashion on Film: Kpop + H&M

4 Aug

Pop music videos are usually used to promote the image of a particular band or artist as luxurious, rich, and desirable. This is especially true when it comes to kpop, or South Korean pop music, in which artists (known as idols) are themselves the product being sold along with a fashion concept.

As a fashion student, it’s a part of my everyday life to keep updated on the latest and greatest things going down in the fashion industry. As a poor fashion student, this means stalking out the latest updates on H&M collaborations and lining up at 3am to get a little luxe in my life.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find some pieces from these H&M designer collaborations popping up in various kpop music videos this year. Here are some of the thrifty but oh-so-stylish wares being worn (PS. music videos hyperlinked to the song titles!) :

U-KISS “Believe” : Marni for H&M, $59.95

Block B “NalinA” : Versace for H&M, $149.95

Z:EA “Aftermath” : Marni for H&M, $34.95

Personally I think it’s a brilliant business move: all the impact of high design with minimal costs means the production budget stays low, allowing for more income in the  long run! What do you think? Have you spotted any budget buys in music videos you’ve seen?
