The YSL strawberry

I'm a bit late off the mark but it's that time of year again when the YSL totes are already out and about! Firstly they were given out on yesterday in New York then rolling out on Saturday in Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, London and for the first time ever, Berlin. The bags are designed of course by Stefano Pilati and feature the fun pixelated strawberry which is a prominent theme in ss10. Inside the totes are the 6th edition manifestos which feature Natalia Vodianova in YSL SS10.

You can access the manifesto in full on the YSL Manifesto Site on 20th Feb. Every time this happens, I am truly impressed by the innovation of YSL through Stefano Pilati and reaching the masses by giving out these totes.

I succumbed to the charms of this little macabre ring by McQueen. With a little help from my friend, I was able to choose this pretty ring and let it join the family of rings I already keep in my cupcake jar. For me, it sums up the beauty that McQueen found in the Macabre.

He was a true artist. RIP.

On a much lighter note, I am thoroughly enjoying the online streaming for NYFW. I adored watching Marc Jacobs and Rodarte to name a few and before I go to bed tonight, I will be tuning into Proenza Schouler! LFW has a huge digital schedule too and make sure you check it out Here starting from Friday! I can't wait to be down in London for the buzz of it all. I'm not going to many shows as I am such a newbie when it comes to organising myself but it will be cool to meet up with fellow bloggers and be a part of it!
