Today’s post got two aims; one is to feature the latest Louis Vuitton collection designed by Marc Jacobs, while the second is to say good-bye to the man just mentioned. Well yes; call it breaking news but the rumours are confirmed facts by now; Marc Jacobs is leaving LV after his 16-year-long tenure at the brand. Jacobs presented his final show in Paris, that was dedicated to celebrate his greatest hits – created entirely in black, as was his first show for the label. An eclectic mash-up of sheers, feathers, denim and excess could best describe the pieces with a hint of tomboyish feel. ‘Jacobs dedicated the show to all the women who have inspired him and the showgirl in every one of them’ – as he explained to Vogue. The reason of his leaving though – as WWD reported – is that the American designer wants to focus on taking his brand public on the stock market, as it heads towards an IPO. Well, I suppose an era has just ended and a new one is yet to come…Hello former Balenciaga creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière?
Der heutige Post hat zwei Ziele: Das erste ist, die aktuelle Louis Vuitton Kollektion Designed by Marc Jacobs vorzustellen, und das zweite, sich von dem soeben Genannten zu verabschieden. (more…)
I reckon that you all have heard about Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne, and also about Cara Delevingne being frequently referred to as the ‘new Kate Moss’. If you know how they look, you immediately realise that it isn’t much about having the common outer traits. One thing they share for sure is that they both made a stir in the fashion industry and success came fast to both of them. Before Kate there was a strong preconceived idea of what beauty was and she effortlessly changed it, while – besides undoubtedly being the new beauty idol – Cara has rather made a difference with her inner traits. She has a great energy, and it’s rare in life that you find a person who honestly doesn’t care, and does it in a rather cool way. It sets a good example for the fellow models. It’s the fresh vivacious smile where her biggest charm lies. In basically a year or two, she made it to all the runways, has been on the cover of Vogue, appeared in ads for Burberry, Chanel and H&M, and is currently the face of the Yves Saint Laurent Beauty campaign. Delevingne’s star is clearly in the ascendant, and many have hailed her as the successor to Moss’s crown – most probably very rightfully…
Ich schätze, ihr habt alle schon mal von Kate Moss und Cara Delevingne gehört und auch, dass Cara Delevingne häufig als ‘die neue Kate Moss’ bezeichnet wird. (more…)
This controversial fashion film is the result of the collaboration between Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton ‘s Art Director and Katie Grand, Editor-in-Chief of British LOVE Magazine, has rather split the crowd. Dutch fashion magazine Blend, titled their short film feature ‘Glamorises Prostitution’ by saying it all and indeedly right. The exclusive editorial video features the latest Louis Vuitton collection – where ‘underwear turned daywear’ was a concept – worn by models like Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Georgia May Jagger or Isabeli Fontana as they are ‘doing their filthy jobs’ in the dark alleyways of Paris. I guess you need to have an open mind (a very open mind) to actually take in such sort of art, if it can be called one, and realise it’s purpose and creative side. Mostly Marc Jacobs has been blamed so far, by fashion critics, top lawyers, French parties etc…but when in this era fashion was about pure reality, innocence or anything ordinary? Frankly, never. There has always been seducing, fantasy, filth, fur; the things you want but know you will never be able to attain. The film will definitely propose further questions/scandals where there will be no conclusion; what was done once, cannot be undone, no matter how strongly Marc shifts off the responsibility to Katie.
Dieser kontroverse Fashion Film ist das Resultat der Zusammenarbeit zwischen Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuittons Art Director, und Katie Grand, Editor-in-Chief des britischen LOVE Magazine, und hat die Menge gespalten. Das niederländische Magazin Blend benannte den Beitrag zu dem Kurzfilm treffend und wahrhaftig mit Recht ‘Glamorises Prostitution’, Verherrlichende Prostitution. (more…)
