Barcelona, Summer, Adriana Lima and Desigual are the keywords of these next few lines of text, despite I’ve got the feeling that this time the images speak better. I’ve shortly referred to Barcelona in my previous post but nothing in details. Barcelona Fashion Week is a bit like Barcelona itself; it’s loaded with energy, it’s romantic arty and colourful; it’s vibrant just as the features Desigual carry. Desigual is renowned of its unique vision of mixing and matching prints and colours – each piece has a spirit and promotes the perfect attire for the Spanish climate while constantly aiming to emphasise female beauty. The core message of Desigual is that the brand envisaged an image in which people dressed in a different ways; in clothes that helps to generate positive feelings and are affordable to all. Besides the colour and print invasion no one less than Adriana Lima spiced up the atmosphere during the show! Well done Barcelona and Desigual, you know how to attract attention!

I have already briefly mentioned Miu Miu’s Fall 2013 collection, which included polka dotted patterns matched with striped tights and fairytale-like shoes by referring to quite a fantasy-rich basis of inspiration. For its campaign video, Miu Miu takes nine models to the edge of a cinematic seaside scene photographed by the creative duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Besides a great deal of mystery and femininity the photographer duo manages to make the dancing models seem like a relatively unpleasant and grim way of spending time on the boat. The surreal images and postures are part of a recent trend (for example Raf Simons’ Dior campaign) in high-end advertising that juxtaposes models in intricate outfits against flat backgrounds doing moody yet slightly exaggerated moves. Models Katlin Aas, Emily DiDonato, Daphne Groeneveld, Georgia May Jagger, Adriana Lima, Marina Nery, Hind Sahli, Anne Verhallen, and Lindsey Wixson are the ones doing Miu Miu’s dance this time.
Ich hab schon mal kurz Miu Mius Herbst 2013 Kollektion erwähnt, die gepunktete Muster zu gestreiften Strumpfhosen und märchenhaften Schuhen kombiniert, angelehnt an eine besonders fantasievolle Quelle der Inspiration. (more…)
