YSL Resort

In Clothes, Designers on June 27, 2010 at 8:09 pm

Not the whole resort collection but some personal favourites. I’m really liking the colour palette and colour blocking happening both in the men’s collections as well as the women’s collections happening at the moment.

Bang by Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs like you have never seen him before. By the way the advert is for his new fragrance if you are able to get passed the fact that he is slightly naked on top of a pile of tinfoil. Who needs a model when you can promote it yourself.

Acne Resort Collection

The more collections I see right now the more I think I will spend the winter wearing all sorts of hats and gloves.

Tom Ford’s New Eyewear Campaign

In Campaigns on June 27, 2010 at 7:47 pm

Crows, 70’s hair reminding me of Farrah Fawcett, massive round shades slightly see through, Nicholas Hoult and Freja Beha Erichsen shot by Tom Ford himself with a set that makes me remember Hitchcock and is movie The Birds over and over again. It is just perfection.

Lunch Break from W Magazine

I guess the Miu Miu Winter Collection will be as much photographed as the Summer one was. The clothes just look so incredibly polished. Looking forward to see how they will be shot in the editorials to come.

There Is a New Lipstick in Town

I am extremely curious to try these ones out. The packaging is beautiful and the 12 shades available look really good. I’m guessing it will be another hit endeavour of Mr. (Can Do No Wrong) Tom Ford. Love the ad photo.

Fashion 156 Summer Issue

In Clothes, Editorial on June 22, 2010 at 9:57 pm

Grab the swimsuits, the hats, the bikinis and the towels, the lotion and the sunscreen, the dresses and the sunglasses, the straw bags and the jelly shoes, the i-pods with the mixed playlists. Grab a handful of friends, make some cocktails and some barbecues make sure to enjoy the summer while it lasts. I haven’t yet but I will soon. Although June and July will bring a lot of work with them, there are lots of plans being made and even a trip to Amsterdam and Berlin, two places I have not visited yet and have been on the to do list as long as I can remember.

We Are Handsome

In Clothes, Designers on June 22, 2010 at 9:44 pm

Great swimsuits from new brand We Are Handsome. They make me feel like taking a long vacation away somewhere.  We Are Handsome, the latest collaboration to come from designers Indhra Chagoury (Oscar&Elvis) and Jeremy J Somers (People Like Us). The swimsuits are vintage inspired and limited edition pieces. It sold out in Australia and the brand can now be found on Yoox and Opening Ceremony.

Lady Gaga Alejandro

By Steven Klein. More of a short film than a music video. Extremely controversial, it really reminds me of early Madonna videos although these are even better, stronger and more bold. The song does remind me of Ace of Base which is not good but who cares about the song this is purely about the visuals and the styling of Nicola Formichetti. The incredible headpiece Gaga wears at the beginning is by Nasir Mazhar, there is a lot of Emporio Armani, Haus of Gaga and custom-made Alexander McQueen. The amazing makeup was made by another industry giant Val Garland.
