With the age and having worked and lived in the ever-changing fashion industry since quite a bit, ones’ shopping habits need to show some sort of consciousness and loyalty towards your own personal style. By the way, are guys any conscious shoppers? Anyway, what my routine is lately that I’m trying to make inspiration boards, browse streetstyle blogs and most of all check my garments from last season to see what could be mixed and matched with my new in-s. Besides the must-have pale-pink wool coat, I’ll definitely go for a pair of thigh-high suede boots, preferably the flat ones though. While searching for the proper style, I ran into this lovely video staring Kate Moss for Stuart Weitzman‘s AW13 ‘Made for Walking’ campaign video. As much I love everything about the shoes, that much I love the video too; directed by independent filmmaker Balthazar Klarwein, the short film brings to life the tangible thrill of Kate Moss stepping out in central London wearing Stuart Weitzman boots paired with her very own stylish and sexy attitude. If the shoes and Moss herself wouldn’t be appealing enough, a modern remake of the classic Nancy Sinatra song ‘These Boots Are Made for Walking’ is played throughout the video. Will you guys get a pair too? – because we are sold!
Mit dem Alter und weil ich schon eine ganze Weile in der schnelllebigen Modeindustrie gearbeitet und gelebt habe, sollten die Einkaufsgewohnheiten schon ein gewisses Bewusstsein und Loyalität zum eigenen Stil zeigen. (more…)
We don’t want to kill your summer vibe, but the brand new Dior ‘Mystic Metallics’ collection – a radiant blend of metallic textures and mysterious shades – couldn’t predict the upcoming Autumn season any more beautifully. Daria Strokous stars in the new campaign and video photographed by one of the most iconic fashion photographers of all times, Steven Meisel. ‘The beauty range is inspired by Monsieur Dior’s belief in omens and superstitions ranging from his first meeting with fortune-tellers at the age of fourteen.’ The ‘Mystic Metallics’ collection includes a nail varnish set, eyeshadow palette, DiorShow Fusion Mono mousse and blush in rosy shades, which all were made for a wonderfully striking look. Considering the variety of colour-ways and tones, there’s something here for everyone; foiled look for the daring ones and dancing queens, and muted tones for enchanting your everyday look.
Wir wollen euren Sommer Vibe nicht killen, aber die brandneue Dior ‘Mystic Metallics’ Kollektion – eine strahlende Mischung aus metallischen Texturen und mysteriösen Farben – hätte nicht auf eine schönere Weise die kommende Herbstsaison vorgeben können. (more…)
Blumarine’s Fall 2013/14 campaign were shot and filmed by Swedish photographer Camilla Akrans who’s lenses are starring at the beautiful Candice Swanepoel who has just recently traded in her platinum blonde locks for a brunette hairdo. Swanepoel worked the camera seductively revealing the collection’s floral, sexy mesh and detailed lace while fully embodying the idea of the Blumarine woman. You can clearly see from the video as the pieces are embracing bright colors and skipping winter layers and instead going for staple pieces. The collection suggests romantic lightness of early autumn nights in which sophistication meets edge in the most perfect harmony. One thing is for sure; Blumarine’s designer Anna Molinari’s nickname sums her up perfectly: the queen of roses, on account of her fondness for these magical and sensual flowers which represent the image of the Blumarine label and symbolically embody its ideal of femininity – as does this lovely video by starring at Candice Swanepoel dressed in Fall 2013/14 Blumarine pieces.
Blumarines Herbst 2013/14 Kampagne wurde von der schwedischen Fotografin Camilla Akrans fotografiert und gefilmt, deren Linsen auf die wunderschöne Candice Swanepoel gerichtet sind, die kürzlich erst ihre platinblonden Locken gegen eine brünette Haarpracht getauscht hat. (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…)
An energetic explosion of collage animation, print mash-ups and funky soundtrack are the elements through Mat Maitland’s recalled a proper pop-jungle world. The soundtrack – courtesy of electro-pop artist Buffalo Tide – well followed the colour-vibes and rough movement-flashes in the video. / Eine energische Explosion aus animierten Collagen, Graphikmixen und einem funky Soundtrack. Dies sind die Elemente in Mat Maitlands Pop-Jungel Welt. Der Soundtrack – von electro-pop Musiker Buffalo Tide – passt sehr gut zu den Farbimpulsen und den groben Bewegungs-Flashes im Video. (more…)
‘The best fashion show is definitely on the street. Always has been, and always will be’ – claims Bill Cunningham and being apparently right. When a year ago Garage Magazine started to film this short documentary, its point was to examine the street-style phenomenon. The film was out just in the right time, the circus over the street-style versus bloggers theme has never been so accurate as it is now. (Just think about Suzi Menkes’ The Circus of Fashion scandal.) Fashion Journalist, Tim Blanks’ monologue brings together the thoughtful opinions of the biggest street-style photographers like Tommy Ton or Phil Oh, Susie Bubble and Hanneli bloggers, Alexia Nieziedski co-founder of System Magazine, Sabina Marshall stylist and Vika Gazinskaya fashion designer. The thoughts evolve around today’s democratic fashion world, which has been compared with reality shows where absurd amount of photographers and bloggers are keen to capture their idols’ current outfit with almost a hysterical struggle. ‘What’s next?’ – asks Tim Blanks in the end, by leaving it an open question. And who is to decree whether this is right or wrong, whether it results Gods or monsters?
“Die best Fashion Show ist definitive auf den Straßen. Das war schon immer so und so wird es immer sein” – sagt Bill Cunningham und hat offensichtlich recht. (more…)
