Leila Shams Fall 2010 'Bad Luck' Lookbook

Are you superstitious? Scared of walking under ladders or having black cats cross your path? Then Leila Shams' latest collection is for you. Glittering with sequins and jewel encrusted details, Leila's Bad Luck collection is a phenomenally detailed, glamorous and beautiful body of work that weaves in motifs of black cats, broken mirrors, and the number 13.

Sorry, did I say the collection was for you, oh superstitious ones? Maybe you're thinking my logic is off. But that's the beauty of this collection. Not only is the theme a clever and well executed one, it's a chance to be rebellious and show your superstitions who's boss. And besides - cracked mirror print leggings are just too cool to ignore.

Tim Burton. Fashion Designer?

The Tim Burton Exhibition at the Moma in New York is energetic, curious and memorable. Having enjoyed two visits and spent several hours wandering around, I keep thinking how transferable these themes are to fashion. The monochrome palette, the shocking blood red and the murky, misty grey tones COULD add a little eccentric drama to the catwalk.

Both Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue UK have explored the idea of Tim Burton as a muse. The Vogue shoot, in December 2008 toyed with the idea. It was an article aimed at exploring our imagination, with Burton and partner Helena Bonham Carter as models. The fantasy styling and monochrome fabrics are even apparent in these early shots.

Harper’s Bazaar went for an altogether different stance, using Halloween as the signature theme for Burton. They styled Louis Vuitton, Nina Ricci and Alexander McQueen pieces to create sexy, disheveled beauty. This is along the lines of how I would envision a Burton Fashion Collection. A teaspoon of gothic, a dash of seduction and a splash of vibrant color. This is imperfect beauty, made attractive because it in different rather than in spite of it.
