Spring/Summer 11 Campaigns

30 Jan

My favorite advertising campaigns for Spring/Summer 2011…

For this campaign, the French brand captured the decadent oriental glamour (theme of the label’s catwalk show in October) in a sparkling 1970s-influenced décor. “We arrived at something which I would compare to the Eiffel Tower lighting up every hour on the hour – something of artifice that is just so gorgeous, and glamorous, and beautiful, that you are completely mesmerized by it”, relates LV Artistic Director Marc Jacobs. Also, the colors and textures of the clothes give a futuristic touch to the campaign, directing three “bad girls” that seems to deliver a riposte to the three “good girls” of the demure Fall/Winter 2010 campaign.

This fashion campaign, shot by Karl Lagerfeld in a picturesque setting akin to a work of art, features the Fendi woman in bold colors or dramatic shapes for the spring. Just like the Fall/Winter campaign, this one seems inspired by the artwork of the American realist painter and printmaker Edward Hopper.

Desigual & Christian Lacroix : The Union Into Pictures

30 Jan

Desigual made public their collection for Autumn-Winter 2011-2012, which will have 30 garments designed by none other than Christian Lacroix. The whole story here.

Explanation of the encounter by the Spanish brand, and theirs plans for the future: “The aim was a breath of fresh air for the brand, Lacroix-style clothes within the Desigual’s Universe. It is all about uniting creativities; brains and hearts working together. But as in any relationship, there is always a beginning. And the beginning was love at first sight. Now Desigual and Monsieur Lacroix have fallen in love. They are getting to know each other, little by little, they are discovering each other, they’re getting intimate. That’s why clothes designed for autumn winter 2011 are just a first encounter between both universes, with so many common points, yet so many differences. It is in the spring-summer season 2012 that this love story will have matured and will bear its fruit: more clothes and accessories.”

Jean-Paul Gaultier En Cancan

30 Jan

Lors de la Fashion Week à Paris l’enfant terrible de la mode a présenté sa collection printemps-été 2012 – qu’il décrit comme “un mélange de punk, de cancan et haute couture”.

Un défilé sans musique mais avec la voix de Catherine Deneuve pour orchestrer l’entrée des mannequins que le créateur a achevé en saluant son public coiffé d’une grande crête turquoise…

Frozen Beauty

29 Jan

Jennifer Aniston is Allure Magazine’s February 2011 cover girl. On the cover page, the 41-year-old actress is featured giving an attention grabbing stare with nude lips. Inside the magazine, she is featured cuddling a teddy bear and donning a Barbie doll expression on her face.

The inspiration of the creative director, Paul Cavaco, came from a 1960s photograph of Brigitte Bardot. Too bad Jen ends up looking more like a wax doll trying to appear 20 years younger and looses a lot of the natural charm and glam’ of Bardot.

From Prada To Nada

29 Jan

A new girly movie – far from being a masterpiece but a hungover sunday confort without a doubt.

Crystal Renn : New Muse Of Zac Posen

28 Jan

Crystal Renn, the ex-anorexic reconverted into a plus-size model, embodies the perfect muse for fashion and the designer Zac Posen is aware of this ultra sexy power of hers!

Here she is for the Spring 11 collection, inspiring and stunning – even if she appears to have lost weight again, she’s still got the curves to rock the clothes, that are also pretty hot!

Good, good job!

 

RED Carpet

26 Jan

While they were both matching with the Golden Globe Awards‘ carpet, the two Mad Men icons seemed to be competing for the most glamorous red look… January Jones was wearing a Versace low-cut dress and Christina Hendricks, a Romona Keveza romantic silk crepe dress.

The two actresses looked undeniably stunning, however -to me- Christina (Joan) is way more attractive and feminine that any other Hollywood beauty.

My admiration is such that I even ordered online the book The Fashion File, written by the serie’s brilliant costume designer, Janie Bryant, where she gives tips and advice on the famous Mad Men look. Even though I love the confort casual chic because it enables me to move as much as I want, I think it’s inspiring to absorb different kinds of styles and let them travel in our heads… A sort of fashion fresh air that makes the rest a little lighter 🙂 Have a nice day!

Le créateur Kobi Levi vient de lancer une paire de chaussures à l’image de la Queen of Pop à l’époque de Blond Ambition Tour. Le look est au complet: le corset mythique de JP Gaultier, la queue de cheval blond platine et même le micro. Alors, qui veut Madonna à ses pieds?

Kobi Levi's Madonna Shoes

The designer Kobi Levi created a pair of shoes model after the Queen of Pop at the Blond Ambition Tour time. JP Gaultier’s famous corset, the blond poney tale and even the microphone – the look is all set. So, who wants Madonna at their feet?
