Princess Mononoke

I've been gone for a while. Most of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 has been a less than pleasant time.

Today, Princess Mononoke was released back in 1997. I didn't see this movie until quite a bit later, but I still count it as one of my favorite Ghibli films if not my favorite! The Forest Spirit's face strikes me as a little unsettling sometimes, but I'm fond of the imagery of plants growing and dying with its every step.

Spring 2016 RTW: Givenchy

"Striking a masterful, almost impossible balance, Tisci delivered a glorious oxymoron of an event: a quiet spectacular." – via wwd.com
I actually managed to catch the livestream of this runway show on vogue.com and I would say that this quote is true – it was very quiet and contemplative, but it wasn't easy to look away.

I also love the black and white version of this illustration  :p

Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear: Marni

"Marni is a brand with a woman-friendly reputation for color and print, and this collection did have plenty of it. […] But it was with her giant leaf prints on graceful elongated tunics over fluid trousers that the collection really hit its stride. It was then that the anxious viewer stopped worrying about what it would feel like to manage all those semi-garments and began to appreciate the chic neo-moderne metal and dangly acetate earrings and chunky lacquer bracelets that are such a Marni draw." – via vogue.com
