Another highlight is happening in NYC: during the weekend of April 25-27 the Empire State Building lights up in purple, pink and white for E=MC².

One of my favourite E=MC² reviews is courtesy of The Guardian, here is an excerpt:

“Endearingly ditzy high-camp abounds on E=MC². The very first notes of the album find Carey swooping around her famed whistle register, revelling in how high her voice can go, before metamorphosing into a synth whistle riff. Over the course of the album, Carey compares herself to ice cream, the lottery, a chandelier, Biggie and 2Pac, weed and her favourite jeans. On the glorious disco bounce of OOC, she breaks into Italian, Spanish and French in the space of one verse for no discernible reason other than that she can (surely the very essence of divadom). (…)
Brilliantly, the music more than matches Carey’s flights of fancy.”

Margiela Perfume

Maison Martin Margiela has announced a partnership with L’Oreal to create the first MMM perfume. I read somewhere that the scent is due in 2009.
This is going to be very interesting. Can’t wait to smell what they come up with. And it ain’t easy as a couple of super perfumes are taken by Comme des Garçons, especially their series 6 with perfumes like Dry Clean, Garage, Tar or Soda or Odeur 53.
Out of all places Women’s Wear Daily suggests it could end up being a perfume without scent or an empty bottle. Both would be absolutely amazing, me thinks.

Hail

Saw “Hail the New Puritan” by Charles Atlas (who was in attendance and did a Q&A) last week. He also did the Leigh Bowery documentary.
Hail is a fantasy documentary about a day in the life of Michael Clark and friends, shot in 1985. I especially enjoyed the parts of the movie where variations of a scene repeated itself and also where wild cuts intersected the narrative. There is a little bit of both in the opening scene below.

Can’t Believe I Did It: Dip & Dye

Had gay brunch yesterday and all of us went on a crafts project after. I choose dip dyeing. The fashion bloggers Style Bubble and Flying Saucer showed me how to do your own Lacroix.


Wait till you see the dress

A lot of times when going out in Toronto, especially when wearing Bernhard Willhelm or Comme des Garçons, I get the insulting question: “Did you make that yourself?”
Guess I have to face the demons now.
