as huge fans of public school, we were more than overjoyed to hear that they were venturing into womenswear. since there is a core tomboy element to how we dress here are miette, menswear interpretations of women’s clothing is almost always met with hand claps (see patrik ervell, tim coppens, etc). we had the pleasure to attend public school’s first runway show at milk studios this past sunday and it was divine. styled by eugene tong and kate lamphear the collection was discreet but strong on detail and tailoring with a quiet color way that we love. also, any elements of amish like touches are a-okay in our book. congratulations to dao-yi chow and maxwell osborne for a super successful and well received runway debut. we loved it all! everyone did!

yoko ono on july 20, 1964 at yamaichi concert hall, kyoto, japan

the process of cutting and de-fabricating cloth on a human form, as yoko ono did in her performance from the 60’s called “cut piece”, can be quite liberating for both the participant and the subject. an allusive and freeing experience. sometimes it’s nice to look at the concept of design in this light. just a thought. -april

jackets by saint laurent, rick owens, acne and band of outsiders

trying to find a good leather jacket that doesn’t make me look like kenickie (yes…from grease) is a challenge. it’s also tough to find a jacket that doesn’t make me look like a road warrior. there are so many factors to consider: too much hardware, too cropped, too broad shouldered. it’s such a journey! the goal was to find one by fall which turned into finding one for winter. it’s now february. i have real problems here, people. -maria

as much as we love stylist, marina munoz we love, love, love her and her husband photographer, sebastian kim together even more. together they make up the chicest benetton-looking couple around. photographer and stylist as a couple is the new model and rockstar. watch.

we have been real fans of keeping it monochromatic lately. it’s easy and chic which we love. it’s just rough when we’re wearing all white. i mean there’s only so much a tide pen can do.

we hearts her

imagewe here at miette, are in pure admiration of anything susan cianciolo does and have been avid followers since she first came onto the scene. her form of expression through mixed media art, with an ethereal take on fashion, is something very unique to her. come to think of it, we really haven’t seen anything like it before. she’s most commonly known for her deconstructive take on fashion, by reconfiguring vintage and completely making it a new. she’s always challenging the norm by creating the abstract as a true individual does.

living in sweatshirts right now. living, i said. my favorites are a.p.c basic sweatshirts and the men’s crew neck sweatshirt from uniqlo. it’s a pill trying to find good crew neck situations for women. i am so over v-necks and scoop necks. more designers need to get on board. truly.

did you get yours?

have we all purchased our copy? lupita on the cover of anything is news but paired with dazed and confused’s styling and we are in heaven. this might live on the coffee table for a few months instead of just one.
