Ruby Slippers - $1,600,000 - Stuart Weitzman

 

In 2003 Stuart Weitzman created the “Ruby Slippers” in anticipation of a breakthrough starlet wearing them to that year’s Academy Awards. His inspiration was the original ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy.

However Mr. Weitzman ended up cancelling his shoe’s appearance. His spokesperson Jane Weitzman state: “We pulled the ruby shoes we were planning to show off at the Oscars out of respect for those fighting in Iraq.”

Creativity often consists of merely turning up what is already there.

were thought up only a little more than a century ago?

Do you know what time it is?

Ulysse Nardin Tellurium J. Kepler Limited

Only $118,000.00

A revolutionary timepiece that rotates the Earth in its true geographical shape seen from above the North Pole.

A flexible spring bends from the Tropic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn to reveal the part of the Earth lit by the Sun and to indicate the time and place of sunrise and sunset. The moon rotates around the Earth.

The dragon hand indicates the eclipses of the sun and the moon. The perpetual calendar completes one turn each year.

I cannot afford these shoes . . .

Furthermore, I do not want these shoes.

The design of the building in Stockholm is influenced by art nouveau and has lots of services such as restaurants, bars, cafes, personal stylists, dry cleaning and a lot more.

NK in Stockholm houses more than 100 different shops spread out over the six shop floors, so it doesn’t matter what you are looking for, whether it is typical Swedish designs or international brands, NK has it all.

fashion (from the staircase series by Issey Miyake)

I’m not certain how one would ‘navigate’ wearing this dress, designed by Issey Miyake from his “Staircase Series” of fashion.

In 2005 the Japan Arts Association awarded Miyake a Praemium Imperiale for outstanding achievement in the arts. In 2006 he became the first fashion designer to receive the Kyoto Prize in Arts and Philosophy for lifetime achievement, awarded by the Inamori Foundation in Japan; the prize included a diploma, a 20-karat-gold prize medal, and 50 million yen (about $446,000). The organization singled out as seminal the clothing line Miyake developed in 1993 called Pleats Please, which “allows unrestricted body movement while enabling the fabric to maintain its form,” and A-POC (“A Piece of Cloth”), which was made from a single thread with the aid of an industrial knitting or weaving machine programmed by a computer. Miyake had begun experimenting on A-POC more than 10 years earlier with textile expert Dai Fujiwara before launching it commercially in 1999. Insisting that A-POC was an ensemble piece, he refused to imprint his name on that collection. He sold it simply as a long tube of jersey, and it was then up to the customer to cut and shape it.
