Who would have thought, Anna Wintour is a sport, and along with so many others accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge, to support the ALS’s fund-raising that has gone viral this week. After being challenged by Gisele Bundchen and her own daughter Bee Shaffer, Wintour further on challenged Roger Federer and Dominic West, go Anna!
Dries Van Noten always delivers beautiful, opulent, feminine, edgy and and contrasting collections, and fall 2014 is no exception. Here’s a little insight into the Belgium designers work and if you’re around Paris before 31′st of August, then stopping by Musée Des Arts Décoratifs could be worth a visit, where the artist ongoing exhibition is held.
Yesterday H&M Studio, the new name for H&M’s seasonal collection of key pieces, presented it’s autumn 2014 show at Grand Palais in Paris. Loads of wearable, femasculine glam pieces on budget, that will be available in stores worldwide from September 4, yeah!
If you are craving a new biopic based on a fashion legend, then you’ll probably find this little beautiful sneak peek of the movie ‘Yves Saint Laurent’ just as teasing as me. The movie, directed by Jalil Lespert, has the backing of Pierre Berge, Yves partner in both life and business, and will release in theatres in January 2014.
Looks like my classic black Lanvin ballerinas will be up for some serious competition this fall. A new Saint Laurent ballerina shoe line will launch in November and like so much else (especially shoe-wise) signed Hedi Slimane/Saint Laurent, I will most likely be in on it. This beautiful B&V video is part of the upcoming launch where ballerina Lida Fox takes the lead, shot by Slimane again off course.
Altuzarra’s beautiful Resort 2014 collection in B&W styled by two of my favourite stylists Melanie Huynh and Vanessa Traina, directed by Simon Cave.
I’m starting to get into the December-Christmassy spirit which usually takes a little longer for me, if it’s the scents I’m burning at home, the lighting decoration in my window or my little trip to Norway I don’t know, but after watching this beautiful video from Topshop starring Kate Boswort singing on top of a piano, I’m not less in the mood. The video takes inspiration from the The Fabulous Baker Boys, and I vaguely remember how drop dead gorgeous Michelle Pfeiffer was in that movie, time to dig into the archives.
Wanna indulge yourself a 2.5 minute beautiful visual injection? Then enjoy this short film, episode three, ‘La Métamorphose’ by Dior!
If you haven’t seen the great Miu Miu SS13 collection yet, here’s the full show. Except for the beautiful items and girls walking up and down the runway (and stairs!), the show really is a pleasure for the eye, the music, setting and collection coming together creating a very sophisticated cool magic moment. Happy Friday morning out there!
Kicking off my Friday morning is Adele’s freshly released James Bond theme “Skyfall”. Ok, so I’m a sucker for Bond movies, well at least ever since Daniel Craig joined, enjoy this wonderful track that couldn’t be more Bond. Happy Friday!
One of the most beautiful collections shown in NY the last couple of days to me is by Altuzarra, enjoy the luxurious tailoring while I’m packing down lots of inspiration with me and head for the airport, bye bye to this fantastic city and see you’ll back in London!
One of my favourite collections from Stockholm Fashion Week this week is with no doubt by Altewai.Saome. Loving the combination of clean minimalism and futuristic sharp detailing. The Swedish design duo Altewai and Saome are definitely someone worth keeping an eye on, see the whole collection here!
Ok, it may be miles away of being as catchy as “Too Funky”, but “White Light” based on George Michael’s near death experience last winter, starring super Kate Moss, really is growing on me, and it isn’t down to the Moss effect though she’s as beautiful as always. Anyway, enjoy the freshly released video!
