NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Despite my role as Fashion & Beauty Editor, I have to confess:
I'm not much of a girly girl when it comes to most things. Still, every
so often I come across a product - be it something from the beauty realm
or a decidedly flawless shoe - that makes me stop in my interwebbed
tracks and pour my sartorial heart out until said product is mine.
Consider this your entirely biased weekly guide to my favorite things.
In honor of Proenza Schouler's creepy/amazing/paralyzing new Harmony Korine-shot cult-esque video entitled "Snowballs," I pay homage to the label's fall 2011 collection with this week's edition of OBSESSED. If you've yet to head over to the website to check out the four minute-long clip, do so immediately because it's damn near impossible to attempt to decipher anything that's going on without sounding unreasonably out of touch with reality. The good news is, it features Proenza Schouler's Navajo-inspired fall line, leading me to 1. Revisit my love for the collection 2. Prepare to empty my bank account 3. Not experience a moment of regret until I realize the down payment of my car was less than the price of these pants.
Le Spiral Velvet Pants from fall/winter 2011. Perfection.
Don't even try to tell me those aren't glorious. But now back to the video - If you'd like a little preface, here's what filmmaker Harmony Korine told Style.com about it: “I used to know an old guy who was mostly blind, he kept a gun in the freezer, and breathed through a machine at night,” Korine said. The cult filmmaker goes on to tell a twisted tale involving goats, the woods, and young women being seduced by the older man—all part of the theme for his new four-minute short film, Snowballs, for Proenza Schouler. “When I was 13 I saw the old man turn into a goat and run around the living room,” says Korine. “I know it sounds strange, but it was real ’cause he licked my face.”
Emily Baker was the first to wear them during the fall/winter 2011 show.
