Classic Cars @ Your Service!

As I mentioned before that I am a vintage lover, anything that has history and character from a teaspoon to a building.  This post is about Vintage Cars.   A vintage car could be of a particular make, year, style, size, or colour.  I understand that not everyone appreciates vintage, fair enough, it is perfectly normal and exciting to have different preferences as I keep on stressing that the world would have been such a boring place if we all had the same interest and tastes.

The word classic defines anything that is old.   A sort of description and appreciation to anything old that was of high quality and still has the same wow impact to date, in other words, it can also be referred to as timeless.   In this case, a car over 20 years does not require road tax anymore.  
"Purchasing and storing classic cars fulfill the passion of antique cars lovers". read more ....... 

I came across an interesting link.  A restaurant with a difference, a completely new and exciting use of classic cars. Crazy cool!!!!
"Eating in a car is not everyone's idea of an enjoyable meal, but at the P.S. Bu Bu Restaurant, in Taiwan, it's a must.  This automotive-themed venue features all kinds of auto accessories and even full cars as dining tables."

I am not sure whether I like the idea or not, but it is interesting.  It is after all the thought that counts at the end of the day.

My Favourite LFW Show

The Spectacular Antoni & Alison Show

As LFW is behind us now, I would like to share with you one of my favorite shows that have inspired me a great deal.
It is the show of designers Antoni Burakwski and Alishon Roberts, otherwise, known as Antoni & Alison.  
The show gracefully opened the doors on day 1 of  LFW with a literal bang of a live brass band.  It was indeed their special day, not only being the first show but also celebrating their silver anniversary.   A vibrant story of playful eye-catching prints, effortlessly chic, and simply 'zip-up-and-go' style.  After following up on the week's show, I had come to the conclusion that Antoni & Alison were definitely my favorite by far on LFW 2012.
Personally, it ticked Anna Luks style of prints, fun, and colour.  A&A's collection was a marriage of style and artwork which I like and every piece told a different story yet very harmonious. Love it!

I like this;  A quote from The Independent   "This time has been like an incredible apprenticeship," they state.  "We have love being 'Antoni & Alison'; we have loved being an independent label.  We design from scratch each season, experimenting with the need to find and have 'good ideas', and sometimes using our 'bad ideas."
