W Magazine Where Troubles Melt Like Lemon Drops Karlie Kloss
My obsession for The Wizard of Oz is very thankful for the industry’s shared appreciation. W magazine shot Karlie Kloss in “Where Troubles Melt Like Lemon Drops” for their October issue. Tim Walker kept everything in a soft focus as camera maestro and should not have any regrets. Just look it! View Post

Leitmotiv for Furla Wizard of Oz collection frame satchels

Leitmotiv for Furla Wizard of Oz collection frame satchels

Leitmotiv and Furla collaborated on another handbags and accessories collection. Continuing the line of abstract illustrations, this one takes us on Dorothy’s journey through the Land of Oz. The result? A colorful selection of totes, frame satchels (a prominent trend this fall), printed umbrellas, leather gloves and even a watch, displaying the Land of Oz in all its glory – it’s kind of nostalgic and wonderful.

The collection ‘Leitmovitv for Furla Talent Hub’ will be launched on September 10, during Fashion’s night Out. The price range for the handbags will be at $245 to $345. View Post

Wicked Musical West End LondonI’ve been listening to one CD for seven years, and last night my man friend took me to see it live. Holy emerald smoke, guys. Wicked is amazing.

For the ones who are unaware, the musical is based on “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West” by Gregory Maguire; a parallel novel published in 1995. The book is a revisionist look at the land and characters of Oz, best known from L. Frank Baum‘s 1900 novel “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and the 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz” – the one that made us all lust after sequined red heels.Wicked Musical London

I am a musical junkie. I spent my high school years in show choir and musicals, can never leave the house without my Zune, and rate my movie tastes primarily on soundtrack. With that said, it is actually quite impossible to describe how emotional, entertaining and extraordinary this musical is. It’s hilarious and heart-breaking, making you feel helplessly invested in the munchkins, monkeys and madness of the Land of Oz .Wicked Musical London

Without giving too much away, I have to comment of the costumes and set-design. When you go, brace yourself for the eye candy also known as the Emerald City. It is like an explosion of green glamour. On the far left of the photo above (click to enlarge) you will find a resident of Oz dressed in the most intricate European chic costume you will ever see. Galinda slash Glinda also has many whimsical Chanel-like ensembles to add to your musical must-haves. The costume designer, Susan Hilferty, deserves thirty pairs of sequined stilettos.

Go see it if you’re anywhere between the ages of five and ninety-five. You won’t regret it.
