Mexico City-based designers Roberto Sánchez and Rafa Cuevas of TEAMO have long been loved by Coutorture but we're definitely not the only ones who can say that. Stemming from their bright, beautiful, on-trend Spring 2009 collection the duo received loads of fashion praise including a shoutout on Style Bubble and an interview with Dazed (not penned by Ms. Bubble). Before you go snag up all of their Spring pieces, check out their Fall 2009 collection below.
>> We've gotten plenty of snippets from the CNN: Revealed profile on Carine Roitfeld already — including her stance on the Vogue replacement rumors — but now, the full show is out on video. Besides discussing the April 2009 cover of Vogue Paris, we get a peek at an upcoming Patrick Demarchelier editorial with Ymre Stiekema in Spring 2009 couture holding animals at an agricultural show ("I didn't know how hard it would be to shoot in this place"), plus a snippet of an interaction between Carine and Anna Wintour, in which Anna cryptically asks, "Did you get my letter? Do you understand?" Without further ado . . .
>> INSIDER WIRE —Scott Sternberg has photographed his Boy lookbook with Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams in the past; for Spring 2009, the Polaroids feature Sarah Silverman in Canter's Deli in LA, posing in fedora and coat with "really big buckets of pickles" or shirtdress and pumps with "vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles." Sternberg chose Silverman because she's "completely different from Kirsten Dunst. We thought it would be a good way to show how versatile the Boy pieces are." [Boy, The Moment]
Before or after you get deeply involved with the Carine Roitfeld videos you might want to check out two bizarre fashion items we happened upon today by chance--okay, by Twitter. Goyard, who created that controversial laptop case has also designed a custom trunk for Barbie's 50th Birthday. The trunk is now available at Colette for a whopping $3,752 approximately. Colette, for that matter, stocks all kinds of wild Barbie collectibles though most fall in adult fashion terrain and so don't amuse us quite as much. As for children's apparel, our pals at Fabsugar UK posted an interesting poll this afternoon: are metallic leggings for babies freaky or fabulous? Thank you, Topshop.
