[Events] Hitchcock Week

I can't think of a better way to spend Halloween!

Starting last night with the classic Psycho, The Davies Symphony Hall will be accompanying timeless Hitchcock films with the SF Symphony! Might I suggest seeing The Lodger on Halloween night? The film is what Hitchcock considers his “first true Hitchcock film” and is greatly inspired by Griffith’s epics of the 1920’s. Creepy and eerie despite the absence of speech, this movie is one of my favorites! And not only because Ivor Novello is so attractive in it.

[Fashion] Throwback to The Blonds Horror Collection

 

Aw, Vincent Price and Alfred Hitchcock in a sweet embrace.

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone! Hope it’s a lucky one. 🙂

Now I know that The Blonds just had their newest collection shown a mere two days ago, and though the space-age Bowie-like themed designs is awe-inspiring, it’s Friday the 13th! And I find their collection from last year is just a little more appropriate for today.

Tut, tut! It looks like blood!

Without any exaggeration, I literally just heard of the design team The Blonds yesterday during my lunch break. To be honest, the way they came up was me and a friend were talking about our favorite drag queens, and he mentioned how Phillipe Blond was pretty much the most gorgeous lady he’s ever seen. My ignorance was shortly dissipated as he showed me her Instagram, and in this Instagram feed, designs for the performer Ke$ha were also present. Though the designers were pleasantly embellished and gorgeous, I wasn’t feeling ultra inspired until he mentioned their horror collection from last year. And then I died.

One thing that most people know about me is how much of a Hitchcock fan I am. Most of the pieces in their 2013 horror collection are heavily Hitchcock inspired, and tastefully so! Completely imaginative and brilliant, I am now a follower of this design duo. Their ability to use inspiration into classy and wearable pieces is a godsend, but trust me it’s not very common in their more extravagant collections. And seriously, how do I buy that raincoat?!
