Outfit post: Sarah M. Holm + Bionic Unicorn

I'm not big on doing outfit posts, but when I wear a local design I like to try and give as many shout-outs as possible.

For Saturday's "Avoid the Grey" fashion show put on by Cliche, I wanted to be decked out in the shop's local designers. I wore a black cotton dress by Sarah M. Holm from Cliche - a perfectly-done little black dress and can be worn in countless ways. You can't see the back in the photo, which consists of spiderweb-like criss-crossing black straps. (You can kind of see it in this photo.) And it's still available in a full size run!

I added a belt with a vintage brooch to give it a little something extra. I'm also wearing a necklace by local designer Bionic Unicorn, also sold at Cliche, a vintage fox fur, and Calpurnia Peach tights (you can't see it, but they're screen-printed with my initials on the back).

Givenchy vs. Labrador vs. Schiaparelli + Dali

In her blog Art of Wore, METRO Magazine's Mary O'Regan pointed out an interesting similarity between a S/S '11 Givenchy couture piece and a jacket designed by Minneapolis-based brand Labrador in the spring of 2005. (The brand, which hasn't updated their website since 2007, appears to be defunct.) Fun fact: the image appeared in a 2005 print issue of l'├ętoile magazine, for which I am now fashion editor.

[Left: Labrador S/S '05. Right: Givenchy Couture S/S '11]

Local couturier Max Lohrbach, who has an insane knowledge of fashion history, pointed out that both designs may be referencing the Schiaparelli lobster dress designed by Salvador Dali in 1937:


...which itself referenced Dali's lobster phone:


Lady Gaga also infamously referenced Dali's lobster art with this bejeweled lobster hat.


All in all, it's interesting how fashion, design and art reference each other time after time, directly and indirectly.
