What is deliciously frivolous and creepy?

Mich Dulce presents her AW 2012 millinery collection in a short film directed by Jason Tan, featuring Manila’s current It Girl, Georgina Wilson.
Mich explains the theme behind her unabashedly feminine and frivolous collection. It was inspired by Marie Antoinette, who became a symbol of the shameless frivolity of a dying regime.
“Today, we live in an age where femininity is a luxury, and being girly is almost trivial and superficial. I just think we all deserve to play and be who we dreamed of being when we were eight, and this collection is about doing just that,” says Mich.

Like her previous collection, Mich continues to work with traditional hand-woven Filipino fabrics like T’nalak. The sustainable material is molded into exaggerated bows and ruffled berets. Piña fabric is introduced this season, adding another element of softness through veils and ruffles while preserving the fiber’s edges. The result is a collection that is doll-like, sweet yet slightly sinister.

Dulce’s designs are known for its overt romanticism and high drama. They are objects that not only speak of luxury but rather demand it as an entire lifestyle.
In Dreams You Are indulges in the reverie of pomp and circumstance, of rakish regality, and the decadent dandy. It refuses to simply grow up and is adamant of going to bed with a hat on.

Marni’s collection for H&M is all about freedom and experimentation, Marni prints and colors intended to mix and match together in a playful way.
Everything goes with everything, making African prints the perfect companion to Bauhaus modernity, and sporty silhouettes sitting with more feminine shapes.

How to catch a Rolex thief

Rolex airport thief nabbed wearing stolen watch

Igor Adrian Ramos apparently had no idea he was the subject of news reports across the country when Broward Sheriff’s detectives arrested him Friday wearing a $6,500 Rolex watch that investigators say was stolen last month from a passenger at an airport security checkpoint.

Ramos, 37, was charged with grand theft and was being questioned Friday afternoon at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport by Broward Sheriff’s detectives who are based there.
“Crime Stoppers tips confirmed what detectives were finding at the same time,” Broward Sheriff’s Spokesman Jim Leljedal said. “Through the investigation, they had narrowed it down to a couple of flights, and he was on one to New York the day of the theft.”
When he was arrested, the Broward Sheriff’s Office says Ramos was wearing the watch that belonged to fellow passenger Gloria de Regalado, who has a vacation home in South Florida.
On Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport surveillance video of the Jan. 18 incident that was broadcast around the world, a man investigators say is Ramos was seen behind de Regalado on the security checkpoint line.
Blaming herself for hurrying and juggling boots, a coat and multiple bags, de Regalado, 43, said earlier this week that when she last saw her watch and a bracelet, the items were placed in a gray plastic bin on top of her coat instead of inside of her purse.
Apparently the watch, a 10th wedding anniversary gift from her husband, as well as a bracelet that held a crucifix, slid into the next gray plastic bin.
On video, she is seen organizing her baggage and leaving behind the items that are noticed by a male passenger.
He pauses, and then picks them up and puts them in his backpack. He had several opportunities to turn the jewelry in to Transportation Security Administration agents or Broward Sheriff’s deputies, and continues to move beyond the security cameras toward the airport concourse.
Investigators say that on the day the jewelry was stolen, Ramos, who travels between Florida and New York for his auto sales business, flew to New York, where he has a home in Long Island.
He was home at a Sunny Isles condo when he was arrested wearing the stolen watch, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
“I guess he didn’t realize he was wearing a woman’s watch,” Leljedal said. #award
