Such an inspirational film about former Harpers Bazaar columnist and Vogue Editor Diana Vreeland – worth watching! Wouldn’t it be exciting to have another ‘Youth Quake’ as Diana called the 60/70’s, when society celebrated music, art and culture that could be epitomised through fashion.
Want to see more from Milan Fashion Week 2012? There is some great coverage of the shows, on a fashion channel on Youtube. Have a look because there are videos from nearly all the shows, with no interruptions or weird music dubbed over the top! http://www.youtube.com/user/FashionweekNow?ob=0
I am all about the films at the moment, so I could not resist showing you a film made by one of my favourite photographers, and starring my favourite model Karlie Kloss. Titled ’10 Years Supporting British Fashion’, the film is to celebrate 10 years of NEWGEN collaborations, where past and present recipients have designed 20 limited charity t-shirts. Oh and we must mention the mashed up Bryan Ferry song!
New York Fashion Week is over for another season. But until then here is a quick round up of the main collections, I’m sorry there are not more photos but this quick taster will hopefully inspire you to look at the collections in more detail. Enjoy!
Prada’s Spring/Summer collection was one of the top shows seen during fashion week. Their modern spin on 1950’s glamour was electrifying! With pouty lips and flamed heels this new ad campaign, to promote their collection, has a winning formula. Hope you like it!
Every few months I love to look out for new clothing/perfume ads, and here is my latest favourite. Freja Beha Erichsen stars as Valentina for the new Eau de parfum by Valentino. Doesn’t she just have the most versatile and frankly perfect hair cut known to women?! What I love about the advertisment is it’s sensuality and old fashioned elegance shown through the clothes, set and of course the music.
My last post from this seasons catwalk shows has to be on Sarah Burton’s incredible show for Alexander McQueen. It is hard not to marvel at the master pieces that are created, for they are other worldly! As they mention in the video below there seemed to be an aquatic theme. This reminded me of the S/S McQueen show in 2010 where there were similar shapes if not the same colours.
Left, McQueen’s show in 2010. Right, a dress from the latest collection. Burton beautifully captivated oceanic life, with amazing use of oyster print and organza ruffles.
