>>I know LF Markey's Vermeer-inspired, contra-period styled A/W09 lookbook has been extolled about before but since I'm in a rush to get a train to Manchester for the weekend and I have a thing about all things nicely packaged, so be it…

I present to you LF Markey's basic line shrink wrapped in the tightest way possible.  I've had a fetish for the Foodsaver infomercial ever since I saw it when I was 11… Vacuum Save them and they will last forever!  I love the way when you open anything vacuum packed and that air poofs out.  Can't explain it.  It's just immensely satisfying.  I reluctantly opened this one but then the air popped out and I was left with a perfectly formed whtie shirt so all is well.


More packaging porn… a neatly presented lookbook in a box…


Serenity comes only with white headphones, a Mac Book, perfectly falling velvet dresses and some apples (Pink Lady please!)

    hey susie
    whilst you’re in manchester, go visit mcqueen on beech rd, chorlton. you get the 86 or 85 bus from piccadilly bus station, and get off at chorlton bus station (last stop). from there you just walk down beech road, past the park, and you’ll get to the fabulousness that is my favourite shop in manchester!

    actually, after leaving that message, i just realised that there is a tie for my favourite shop in manchester – the other shop being oklahoma in the northern quarter (though not a clothes shop – more of a fancy goods emporium)

    They are very lovely photos. Its interesting to see how the clothing has been interpreted for their lookbook. Their website is so modernist minimal; it really encourages looking at their clothing differently. I would think this is the complete opposite of campaigns like for Marais Girl. For that, there was really the idea of ‘if you are this kind of girl, you wear our clothes.’ Here, it seems very much ‘you think you know us and our clothes?’

    Ah, i love the refined, august atmosphere of classical art in each picture of the lookbook… very different from the flashy “if you wear this, you are an exciting person!” motifs. Those get so gaudy and tiresome after a while.

    hi there. just wanted to add something cause your post made me smile a bit. when something is vacuum, there is no air inside per se. so it’s impossible that any air comes out when u open it. =P
    keep the blog up, u have great style…
