Ray-Ban Rules

Super fab sunglasses from iconic sunglass label Ray-Ban. Amazing quality as always, and made in the U.S.A.
These shades were made during the era in which they were owned by Bauche and Lombe (B+L).
The frame a classic tortishell colour set off by a green/grey lens.
The shape a super modern, very stylish configuration where the thickness of the arm gives the illusion of a wrap around vibe.

Antwerp Six makes good with Martin Margiela

A very special piece!
The designer has attached, as the label, a "map" that indicates the level of importance the piece holds (to the label).
This is numbered 0 which means there are very few pieces, and would have been quite expensive, and of course, very collectable.

An interesting piece from "Maison Martin Margiela" originally of the "Antwerp 6", an experimental design collaborative started in the 1980's that included Ann Demeulemeester and Dries Van Noten. Margiela began his own label in 1986.

This shirt, for men or women, has great potential in terms of longevity and style. Layered and in two pieces with a white cotton under layer and black gauze chiffon over layer. There is a hook closure at the heart and one more at the belly button.
It can be really cute as a jacket too!
Using only the top heart closure it can be beautiful beach wear or an evening jacket.

Sporty footwear from Dries Van Noten

This absolutely fabulous Italian-made shoe is from Antwerp’s Dries Van Noten. An excellent and extremely stylish combo sneaker/bowling shoe (nice job of reworking a vintage idea). The shoe is leather and canvas with orange-red embossed leather detail at the ankle, and a sole of leather and rubber. Great style from on of the hottest of the new wave of Belgian designers!

It says size 37, but will probably fit a women’s 40 or 7/8


Prada continues to pump you up!

Silvery, moss green a super hot, super cool shade.
Perfect summer dressy shoe, perfect summer wedding shoe even for the bride.
Made entirely from silk satin except the sole, which is really nice leather, that sort of wraps around the foot. Beautifully feminine!
They really are like a piece of art.
