fifi lapin shop update

Back in February I was lucky enough to be whisked away for Valentines day by the lovely Sonny Hare to the capital of love, Paris... you may remember that we asked a very sweet tourist to take our picture, she was all the way from Korea and had actually heard of me so I was very excited and felt like a film star! Well now, if you'd like, you can buy a reprint of that very photograph, 'my heart belongs to Paris'.


Don't we look cute! I'm very excited because this will be just the first photo available from my personal collection.


I have also released fine art prints of both my gifts from Sonny, 'you are beautiful' and 'fififlies'



all the print are available in my official shop here
and in my etsy store here

enjoy!

I love this...

it's raining in my heart


the forecast is for rain so I've donned my new Burberry rain hat, and don't you love this tulip skirt with it's line of jaunty buttons?

check out this brilliant short film by Kirsten Lepore over on Ruby's blog...

autumn colours


Today I'm wearing mostly autumn colours from the Chloe spring summer collection and I'm mostly staying indoors - it's not quite warm enough outside for bare legs just yet!

what colour are you wearing today?

Talking of autumn colours I've been thinking about Dries Van Noten's latest collection. It was such a breath of fresh air to see some colour on the winter 09 catwalks and what a lovely colour palette it was too. Perfect for kicking up some autumn leaves... without wishing my summer away I could almost look forward to it!

kindred print - new in the shop!


Exciting news, I created a special spring inspired artwork for the kindred project. A venture set up by the creators of super cool blogs decor8 and creature comforts who commissioned some of their favourite artists to create desktop wallpapers for you to enjoy at no charge — a way of saying thanks to all of our daily readers and friends... and now I am releasing the piece as a print so you can enjoy it on your wall as well as your computer.

download the desktop wallpaper here

and here's the little interview I did for them...

You were given Pantone's color predictions for Spring to draw inspiration from. What colors did you end up selecting and why?
"I chose salmon rose, rose dust, slate grey and vibrant green, I wanted to keep the colour scheme simple to create a coherent collection."

What does Springtime mean to you?
"Hope... that soon I will be running bare paw through lush green fields feeling the sun on my fur. I love summer and so spring is a sign it's on it's way."

How did you try to translate that into your work?
"As a fashionista most of my day is taken up by deciding what I might wear and so I just imagined 10 days worth of my ideal spring outfits. I snuck in a little cloud because here in Britain we appreciate the rain - we have too! and without the rain we wouldn't have the lush green countryside that epitomises Britain in spring."

enjoy!

hair


One thing you may not know about me is that I often dream about having hair. Well it's not that I am exactly hairless, it's just that fur is a very different texture to hair and it never grows longer than an inch - and that's only when it gets really cold. The sort of hair I long for is the long silky tresses that models seem to possess. You know the ones... no matter how many different fantastical crimped updo's and furiously backcombed creations they have to go through for the shows it still hangs down beautifully. Swaying while they walk and blowing around them like an advert for posh shampoo.

Sigh.

I thought the only option for me would be to wig it - which I am not adverse to (see above - this look from Betsey Johnson somehow wouldn't be complete without the splash of pink) but now Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy has used hair to make the dresses. Masses of it, long and black and so silky. It's not exactly practical daywear but I'm considering it, even if it's just because I get to say I'm worth it =;x)

feeling normal again


Hurrah! I feel like a normal rabbit again, the kinks have come out of my long silky ears and the my eyes are looking a lot less like a pet shop rabbit. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it's just I prefer to wear pink on my outer garments rather than my inner self. I tentatively left the house today without sunglasses for the first time in a week, accompanied by Sonny, both wearing spring/summer Mulberry. We went for a little stroll in the park. The weather has been lovely here and we just lay in the grass cloud spotting, listening to the birdsong and munching on the clover. Just feeling normal is suddenly so appealing.

hope you have a good day today

under the weather

Hello me dearys,
I've got the dreaded lurgy... flu and pinkeye... unlike some rabbits I don't naturally have pink eyes so it looks awful and I am hiding inside with my largest YSL sunnies on watching movies and daytime tv on the sofa with my paws up. I've even been off my food which is not like me at all. Sonny even tried to tempt me with his infamous beetroot brownies but all I've managed is a few sips of carrot juice (thanks Irene for the suggestion) which brings me to this adorable picture from flickr member Maria*PA who looks after some of the most adorable of my cousins. look at the sign; good for what ails yer! so sweet...

p.s. I heard about a couple of bits of press today which cheered me up, a bit in the USA Metro about affordable art and one of the LeSportSac bags in USA today if anyone has a copy of that I'd love to see it

Je m'appelle Fifi Lapin and I'm wearing Sonia Rykiel


A couple of days on the beach and my paws were itching to get back to the shows... I really should listen to my mother who did point out as I was just about to board the plane that I wouldn't be able to contain myself for long whilst the rest of the fashion pack were getting their fashion fix. So I jetted back to Paris (planting a few trees along the way and praying to mother nature to forgive me for my wastefulness when it comes to flying) just in time for the Sonia Rykiel show where the models called out to us like little birds with pretty french accents... "Je m'appelle Imogen, and I'm wearing a knit dress" and "I'm a black fox, I'm a foxy girl" but my favorite had to be "I'm wearing sunglasses because I'm a star." - my sentiments exactly! Makes a nice change from the eyes forward catwalk stalking silent beauties we've become to used too and the clothes were pretty nice too...

catwalk to beachwalk




Hey loves, well it was all too much for me, I've had to take a couple of days out of the Paris fashion week schedule to rest my sore paws... and so I have jetted off to Bali for a couple of days of R and R... rest assured, I've got my trusty minions streaming live pictures of the shows to me while I lie on the beach so I won't miss a thing - It's a tough life being an it bunny!

Luckily I already had a bit of spring/summer Anna Sui on hand to throw into my faithful LV suitcase so I can be happy in the knowledge that if I get papped (paws crossed) I'll look always look effortlessly stylish.

wish you were here!
