Today’s Sparkle Video was sent in after Wednesday’s post about Disco Mannequins.  It seems there’s a fetish out there for everything and these glimmering mirror-tiled ladies have their own devotedly decadent pack of male suitors. Not surprising, however, is that the President of the DMLS, or Disco Mannequin Love Society, is non other than Andy Gardiner, half of the superstar duo Den Haan.  I can totally see why he’s into this kink though, because there’s no way in the world a regular ol’ fleshy gal can compete with these exquisitely tall, sleek, perky breasted goddesses that beam and bounce light off their every curve and are gloriously always the “life of the party” (ironic, yes?).  As you can see here in “Magic Carillion”, the singing spandexed Rose is doing a bang-up job performing to a bunch of equally sassy deciples, but it doesn’t really matter because everyone knows the real star is in this video is that spinning sparkling alien behind her.

DMLS: I’m in!

Disco Mannequins: APPROVED!

This sparkling photo was submitted for approval by NYC legend Mother Krunk who said that these gorgeous creatures were so dazzling, he didn’t even notice where he saw them!  Turns out, they live in the window of a SoHo boutique owned by a reality TV star who will remain nameless. Why, you ask?  Because the Sparkle Army is Superstar Heavy, but CELEBRITY FREE! That’s right Soldiers, you don’t have to be a starf*cker to recognize that these “pyramid” mirror-tiled Disco Mannequins are not only fabulous, they are APPROVED!


Disco Bathroom: APPROVED!

What’s the most amazing thing about the newest artisanal food shop in NYC, the Donut Plant? If your answer is that “even during a recession people are willing to pay $2.75 for one single donut”- that answer is WRONG.  The right answer is that inside this shop, which by the way, sits under the legendary Chelsea Hotel, is the most awesome Disco Bathroom ever seen! Completely mirrored tiled walls are adorned with delightful spinning disco balls and lit so sparklingly, it can only be described as KABLAM! Sadly, there’s no music pumping or smoke billowing when you flush the toilet, but I left them a note in the suggestion box. In the meantime, I’ve got my iPod and my “Disco Smoke In A Can” so I’ll be back to the Donut Plant because the donuts are delicious and the bathroom is APPROVED!


Great Moments in Disco Fashion History: SPACE CUFFS!

Because I cannot stop pointing them out every time I see them, I thought it time to pay them homage. Not for the shy or timid, SPACE CUFFS are the most glorious and daring accessories one can wear.

From a book published in 1983 called “Fashion 2001”, this outfit is single-handedly responsible for my obsession and was created by France Andrevie, a Belgian designer who specialized in avant garde clothing. This cherished book is filled with images from various designers who shared their SPACED OUT FASHION PREDICTIONS for the future, but this one is by far my favorite!  Wouldn’t the world be a more fabulous place if people dressed in this DISCO-TASTIC ensemble all the time?

Sadly, Mlle. Andrevie never got to see how her predictions for the future turned out, as she passed away in 1984 at the age of 39.  Today, I declare that the Sparkle Army is devoted to keeping her dream alive and I encourage all of you to go out, find some fabulous materials and start making yours today!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… SPACE CUFFS: GET SOME!
