A New Favorite Shopping Site

The ra webshop is heaven sent for people craving avant garde apparel. Everyone modeling the outfits looks completely insane, and the prices are sky-high.

I was upset to find out that one of my favorite ‘pieces’ must have sold out, but luckily I had saved a picture of it:

Leather hat (and corset) by Niels Peeraer. ┬áLet’s love him, okay?

Here is a great runway look by Niels –

It’s going to be hard to go back to those boring skinny jeans and moto-jackets at Shopbop. It’s just a sea of nothingness there.

Check out ra and tell me what captured your heart.

    and this is the shoppe of the eponymous amon ra? or the shoppe of the eponymous irving ra?

    The Jeremy Scott Multi striped tank dress
    Resort wear for the very hungry caterpillar

  3. Sister Wolf Says:

    Carly – Oh yes, I love the rear-view and the way it drags on the floor.

  4. mim Says:

    is this website trolling? surely it’s a joke….

    edit: alas, it is real. this is the website they should show to children scare them when teaching them to “say no” to drugs.

  5. Suspended Says:

    Wow, that last model looks so ashamed. They should have called it Ha!

    Ok, cuppa in hand, I can waste a few minutes on this.

  6. Suspended Says:

    The Vintage section is a must see. I’m not sure that man is doing much to sell the dresses but it’s fascinating in a sort of repugnant way.

    On the up side, there are some quite stunning Paco Rabanne pieces that seem positively cheap in price compared to some of the new tat.

    I’m in awe of this website. You’re right Sister, it’s entertainment gold. I had no idea Givenchy made such utterly horrible footwear for men. A few minutes is fast turning into an hour.

  7. Sister Wolf Says:

    Suspended – YES, the vintage selections are very special, Just look at everything!

  8. Bonnie Says:

    Oh I so want my husband to wear all of these looks. I can’t wait to see the rest of the site. Now I know where to do all of my Christmas shopping.

    I can’t get past the awful website design to even look at its content. You’d be mad to buy a six thousand dollar garment from a website the barely functions. I absolutly love rediculous clothing, but I have no patience for this.

    Comedy gold. If I was wanting to channel Susan Boyle emulating one of the twins in ‘The Shining’ by running up a dress from a shower curtain, this is totally the look I’d go for:-

  11. Sister Wolf Says:

    Caroline – I love that one too, and look how nicely it fits the model.

    Sarah – Really? I’m pretty tech-challenged but I was able to navigate it. Why don’t you promise your husband/boyfriend a pretty dress if he will help you figure it out!

  12. BethUK Says:

    I love the gold feather jacket but my personal prize has to go to the fur purse necklace. I particularly like the way they have styled it to emphasise how practical it is.

  13. BethUK Says:

    Oh! I take it back. I have a new top favourite. It’s just a shame I’m already married…..

  14. sarah Says:

    Hahaha! Fair enough! The problem is most likely with the ancient version of Explorer on my work computer… not operator error. Rest assured that I am not incompetent, at least at internet window gawking. Carry on:)

  15. Sister Wolf Says:

    BethUK – Yep, that purse necklace would hold everything except for my wallet, sunglasses, keys and pen. But the Wedding Jumpsuit! This would be amazing for renewing your vows on another planet!!!!!

  16. Cricket9 Says:

    Nothing like getting married in a vintage jumpsuit, by Paco R. I could be persuaded, but don’t see an appropriate outfit for the groom on the website.
    I also would like to know what “tubogaz” is.

  17. Andra Says:

    Bullshit. These people are just good-looking Walmartians!

  18. fufsy Says:

    You are my new favorite blog. I’m dying at the menswear section. Peeing myself currently.

  19. regularstarfish Says:

    Geez, I’m torn between the Naomi Goodsir “Earhart Barramundi” and the Naomi Goodsir “Hair Aviator”. These are the bee’s knees! And at only 1300 euros, I can’t believe how affordable it is. How can they afford to stay in business with prices that low?

  20. Kristin Says:

    These are the kind of people who’d design a fur tampon.

  21. ali Says:

    the models appear to be normal-ish sized… so that’s good i guess. i like the kay kwok full furn coat. it is a life purchase/life enhancing purchase. Although if I had $3,000 I’d probably just use it to pay my rent a few times and buy another pair of truly unnecessary spiky toed, knee high, leather boots.

  22. ali Says:

    the real question here is … WWCFGGD

    what would chantal from gallery girls do.

    it’s a mouth full. but not if you mumble it

    I bet charo does not pay this month for her hats.

    My grandmother is 97 years old. When her head was on this planet full time, she was one of those inventive women who made bags out of coffee bags etc.

    She could have made a nicer vest for the first boy than the one he’s wearing. Maybe she still could.

  25. Winterbird Says:

    I too liked the striped tank dress. It fills my life long desire to look like a roll of assorted lifesavers.

  26. Taylor Says:

    You are the best! Hahahaha the first outfit, I’m dying.

  27. Make Do Style Says:

    Ha! It is sooooo Antwerp. I expect nothing less.

  28. JK Says:

    He looks pretty normal (as he would of course) in that lead photo – but tell me Sister Wolf – ow’d you manage to get David Duff outta the long-johns and shaved in the last two shots?

  29. claire Says:

    These win for me. Do they pick up a radio signal? Why is she naked?
