universal noise of fucking (UNF)


I know I'm incredibly late to the party here, but Christopher Kane's Resort 2011 collection has me seriously contemplating which of my most prized possessions to hawk on eBay in order to afford just one piece. Nebula and stars and galaxies! Incredibly beautiful natural phenomena that seems too unreal to actually be real, that we'll never get to see or touch or travel to. In a way, Christopher Kane is making outer space real and tangible, bringing it down to Earth.

I've had an avid interest in space and astronomy (specifically, astrophysics) from the time I was a child and even considered studying astronomy before I left college. So this collection is more than just beautiful and covetable. It's deeply personal for me. It taps into one of my biggest interests and defining characteristics of my personality - my nerdiness, my love of science and math, and fascination with celestial physical law. Unfortunately, the price point for this collection is so far beyond my range, it might as well be on a different planet. Or star system. Or in another galaxy on the opposite side of a parallel universe. Sigh. Maybe in my dreams.

OH WOW, me too! I came even later to this than you did (just been scrolling back through your blog) and I'd give anything to have some of that amazing stuff he designed. It's just phenomenal.
