I thought once I was done with college I'd have plenty of time for making clothes and telling you lovely people all about it. Clearly I was wrong, all my time of late has been spent trying to squeeze in all the time I can get with my friends before I head off for the summer, who knows when I'll see them again. Soon enough Catherine and me are going to have to say goodbye and probably won't be seeing each other again till Christmas (that may not seem like a lot of time to some people but we generally don't go more than a few days without seeing each other so it's going to be a bit of a shock).So recently we planned a brilliant day of reading the papers over a few pints in our new favourite pub,followed by cinema scoops ( I don't know how anyone has managed to watch angels and demons without being drunk. So anyway the Guardian kindly informed me that design legend Philippe Starck would soon be designing a range of clothes with the Scottish brand Ballantyne. He has designed clothes before, not too long ago with Adidas however this range will be a little different, this is not fashion, no ,no this is a range of responsible clothes that will outlast the fads of fashion. If there's one thing I love it's pretension something Mr Starck is not lacking. It seems it may take us a few years to understand his designs but eventually intelligent people will understand. I've only been able to find this picture, its quite difficult to comment on really, it looks like a hood thats just a little too pointy to me but Philippe Starck probably knows what he's talking about, he's not been wrong yet.

Sorry I forgot to include my favourite quote from that article,'Black is a fearful non-choice," he informed Le Figaro. "A laziness, a weakness and ultimately a vulgarity.

the problem is that if Philppe starck (and some other "so called" designers) makes a poop, everybody screams at the miracle, what a smart idea, and groups of industries challenge one another to have it (even if it's poop).
this is not DESIGN, this is decoration.
but finally who cares about Starck and all the bunch of fake selfcalling designers that, after masturbating, want make us enjoy the product of their ejaculations??? i don't!
but the really important question is: what's the name of that gorgeous model with red hair that wears these shitty dresses? OMG she's beautiful! a really piece of DESIGN!
cheers... Vince
