Legomaniac with a Complex God

by jennine on April 14, 2009

Who do you think loves Lego more? Boys or girls? I know I had Legos, but they definitely played a more practical role in my childhood. Meaning: I mostly used Legos to build Barbie furniture. In my adult life, I just love how adults wedge these funny blocks into our daily lives. From cheeky Invader Lego brooches to avant garde fashion Lego leggings, like in childhood, endless possibilities.

Malaysian born and based in Singapore Sabrina Goh makes for this lovely line of androgynous clothing called Elohim: “Elohim meaning Jehovah, God of creative is a strong motivation for her to do her collection.” I’m not really sure there is a god of creative in monotheism, but I’m not well versed in theology either. None the less, with a bold name and fun accessories and pixel-like embellishments, I love the balance between sculptural and minimalistic, it’s the fine line you’d need to carry off wearing Lego, that’s for certain.

The lego leggings are uber-cool. I think I need them.

I think Legos are an equal-opportunity toy. :) I definitely had them and loved building things. The leggings and necklaces are cool and would make an amazing D.I.Y.

love the lego leggings. but the lego necklace is *amazing*!!

Ooh love the lego necklace. I don’t know yet about if i like the lego-leggings because i probably feel a bit like a stormtrooper :)

My sister had a LEGO set with an island and you could make your own paradise beach bar, that was great!!

Those leggings are solid. Love love them. I even love the way they are presented on that bowl-cut girl. Yay!

That hair style is really popular in Japan. I would love to try it but am not sure I would be able to maintain it! I love the edginess of the collection. There’s the drop crotch again!

Wow, what will they think of next!

I loved Legos when I was growing up. My sister & I played with them constantly. :] This is really cool.

LEGOS!! Those were definitely a part of my carefree childhood. My brother hated it when I wanted the lego men to date my barbies though.. oh those were the days.
I love the necklace and I would totally sport it. I know it would be a great conversation piece.

Legos are an incredible little tool. I like the fact that if you don’t glue them together (which you certainly don’t have to), you can change the pieces at will, either between or DURING wearings! Great microdesign opportunity.

how about those ever so popular Dee & Ricky lego heart shaped broaches? I love emm.

❤ fajr… i was thinking the same thing… like how hard can it be to attach legos to your leggings?
❤ violetville, it’s perfect isn’t it? i love the way it’s cool and legoy but not kitsch… too much
❤ dreamsequins… how could you not be cool with lego leggins and a bowl cut?
❤ anthea..oh really? well, i’m not that surprised, i would do it but i’m too old. it would just make me look like moe from the three stooges.
❤ apricot…aww, i bet that was the cutest thing!
❤ alixrose…hahahah that’s so funny, i love it!
❤ barry, that’s just asking for trouble, i wouldnt be able to participate in any conversation because i’d be too busy reconstructing my jewels…
❤ betsey…what! lego hearts, be still my beating heart!

Wow, I certainly didn’t make things like that with lego! It’s so original x

i love the white tank. it’s perfect. and the close up photos. it makes me want different hair again of course.


17 freya April 14, 2009 at 10:48 pm

i love that hairstyle, but looks good only on few!

Very cool! What a great idea to make clothes inspired by legos :) The model has a great haircut. But she’s so thin!
