baptiste viry

oh my, i'm seriously in love with the SS10 collection from Baptiste Viry. first seen on Vain and Vapid (pictures from here) i had to go to the website and see his stuff for myself. it's the perfect mix of classic menswear and complete originality. i especially love the clip bow-tie necklaces. the entire lookbook is lots of fun (warning: there is partial nudity in some of the pictures) and has an antique feel. while you're on his website, check out the FW09 lookbook, too. it's home to some super great vests. looking at all these pictures makes me want to break out my suspenders and fedoras and loose white tank tops and rock the menswear look.
i just need to find a nice pair of trousers...like these from Topshop:

and a lovely bow-tie necklace like this one from ModCloth to complete the look!


  1. I really like the first necklace... the brown leather (?) one. I bet these would be a pretty easy DIY project.

    Hope you are having a nice Saturday!

  2. What a lovely look! Kind of that androgynous look without giving up femininity; I especially like that bow necklace!

  3. oh bows! i can never get enough of them! and i am loving that last necklace!i have a teeny tiny gold one on a necklace but i love the giant ones!

  4. oh i love bow ties! these are fabulous and I must have one!!!

  5. What an interesting combination of feminine bows and androgyny!

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
