Featuring: Wallace and Gromit sports designer looks!

Yup, indeed, as the headline mentioned, Aardman's Wallace and Gromit are in designer wear...for the poster campaign for UK's Harvey Nichols. The campaign is to promote the opening for the branch in Bristol. The advertising campaign is created by DDB London with photography by Giles Revell.

Wallace is styled in Paul Smith while Gromit wears a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses and purple silk scarf by Duchamp

Tottington is styled in Alexander McQueen, Christian Louboutin (love the shoes!) and Zagliani.

Wallace is styled in Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana and Giorgio Armani while Gromit wears navy silk Paul Smith scarf.

Making of the Campaign

Now who would have thought they would sport a sharper look?

Preview: One 'Western Spaghetti' Coming Up (with alternative ingredients)

It's been a long time since I've seen any stop-motion animation feature since Wallace and Gromit. I saw this video 'Western Spaghetti' by PES from the blog, 'Apartment Therapy' and thought I should share what I watched here.

I love how they used these alternative 'ingredients' into this 'spaghetti dish'! - Watch more free videos

Anyone hungry for pasta now?

Everyone’s talking about H&M...

There are many other websites mentioning about the collaboration with H&M and Comme des Garcon since April.

Here is a little gist. This fall (November 2008), the Comme des Garcon line will join the list of past contributing collaborators such as Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Victor and Rolf. The Comme des Garcon collection will release to the public limited to certain cities.

I doubt I have to elaborate any further…as many other great websites have already mentioned about the arrival of the collection. Here are a few website to mention:

That's Chic:
Raych’s has her personal observations about the collection that contains the photos that has leaked out.

The sneak peek from ‘W’ magazine (issue will be out on the 19th of August (in the US) with comments from designer Rei Kawakubo.
The website provides better views (or for my case better loading time) of the garments.

Respectfully Yours:
Some opinion about what is seen from the photo leaks of the H&M collection wondering: when looking at comme de garcons' fall 2008 ready-to-wear, i can't help but wonder - what happened?’

Style Bubble:
Some comment and what outfit Susie has her eyes on.

What's my opinion?

I’m a little skeptical about this men’s wear outfit…is it just me or does this look like it came from a sleep wear set?

The styling element of this ensemble catches my eyes. At least the polka dots aren’t as dull as the men’s ensemble mentioned. Perhaps I like it because of the way the scarf is tied around the neck.

I have my eyes on these two jackets. I like the way the shapes and asymmetrical proportion is played around (left) and the placement of the zip (right). However I’m pretty sure I will not be able to get it since there is no H&M in Singapore. Oh well… wishful thinking! Ha ha!

Eyeing on and loving it (Samsonite Handbag)...

Indeed it has been a long time since I updated my blog. It was hard to capture street style photos in Shanghai since the people there walk really fast and also, my camera is really kind of old...but it doesn't mean I will not post it. Give me time to sort out my photographs!

Meanwhile, I just wanted to say I LOVE (with huge emphasis) with this messenger bag from Samsonite...

'Half moon handbag' from the collection 'Concertine' (Samsonite Black Label)

I love this bag is it is collapsible and I can use it anywhere in the world. However, it's a little out of my budget since I don't have any proper income...
