Peeping Pepe

I've been sitting here at my desk in my newly remodeled room doing nothing but studying for finals and drinking diet squirt, so after I while I felt it was only necessary to give myself a five minute break to wander off on the internet. Somehow, some way, I ended up discovering this awesome designer by the name of Maria Francesca Pepe and really fell in love with her creative and directional designs.
 
Since I'm dying of starvation right now, I'll just leave you with photos of her most recent collection... all I can say is looking through her S/S 09 collection, I've come to the conclusion that I really need a necklace that could double up as a deadly weapon.

Teagan said...

The clothes are great but the shoes in picture 2 that are subsequently repeated throughout are atrocious. Like old lady shoes on platforms.
Everything else, I totally agree with you that it is awesome. Get one of those necklaces pronto!

Oh please tell me that exposing 30cms of stomach is not going to come back into fashion again.

I remember when it was fashionable in 1995 and it was horrible seeing the bottom of girls' bras hanging out from their midriff tops.

they are all unique!

chicmuse said...

CAN I KICK IT? said...

hey im sorry darling to bother you with such a silly question when youre so stressed out. but you have really become such an inspiration from me, and I wanted you insight on my small superficial dilemma. I am going to an open call tomorrow for american apparel and I was wondering what should I wear: head to toe aa, or mix different pieces, etc etc.

thanks so much, and i hope you do wonderfully on your finals.

sincerely,
Alejandra

Mcmaris said...

Wow I love this collection!!! So inspiring. I'm feeling a bit DIY over it.

TK Lamourliere said...

Hey karla, I dont know if I just missed your post on this one but I dont think you mentioned you happened to be in NEET's online magazine? www.neetmagazine.com It would be funnier if you didn't know, and just happened to be in the table of contents since the writer is a fan of yours.

Noelle Chantal said...

Beautiful inspirational picks as always, Karla. I like how her pieces look so soft yet look so sharp and edgy. Gorgeous artistic photos! I'm loving the 4th one, the softness and simplicity of white against that contrasting sharp deadly weapon necklace is just perfect! :)

Good luck on your exams and I hope you'll do a post of your fresh closet soon!

Jaaayrin said...

betsy and iya said...

struck by the audacity of this designer. What fun it must be, to shoot these designs! man, I'd love to be on that set!!

chicfaced said...

talk about a statement necklace, hmm?

not sure if you feel the same way, but now that i have short hair, i feel it necessary to have big earrings or large necklace on at all times.

McKenna said...

weapon-like accessories + amazing blazing blazers + five-story tall shoes = <3


:)

Fashion Coma said...

I believe i saw some of her work in plastique magazine, definitely the necklaces at least, what a really terrific collection!

Anonymous said...

Fantastic. I like the structure of it all.

Carissa said...

love the last image. and not just because I am a newspaper gal. I actually really like the outfit. simple but chic. and those heels! those could be a deadly weapon :)

Styledrop said...

Yeah that could be used as weapon. How convenient! And those black shoes reminds me of that I have slowly starting to warm up for creepers. Are spice Girls times coming back...:)
