The Era of Saint Laurent Paris

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Din luna martie, Yves Saint Laurent are un nou director de creatie: Hedi Slimane. Din luna iunie, Yves Saint Laurent are un nou nume: Saint Laurent Paris. O…”rebranduire” pe care multi au blamat-o, insa pe care Slimane a descifrat-o rational, firesc si in avantajul tuturor: o intoarcere la “valorile fundamentale ale casei”. Sa nu uitam ca in anii ’60, cand Yves a pus bazele liniei sale de ready-to-wear, brandul purta numele de Saint Laurent Rive Gauche.

Urmatoarea etapa: colectia de Resort 2013, dezvaluita intr-un stil aproape…Tom Ford-ian, cu asistenta limitata si interdictie la poze. Casa, la randul sau, nu a vehiculat nicio imagine, niciun lookbook, tocmai pentru a crea suspans si a nu face in niciun fel previzbila colectia de primavara-vara 2013, ce urmeaza a fi prezentata in luna octombrie, in cadrul Paris Fashion Week. Din informatiile celor prezenti, insa, Resort-ul arata “extrem de pozitiv”. O colectie structurata si definita, mult mai “scumpa” decat cea din era lui Pilati, cu topuri din matase, dungi, skinny jeans, pantaloni-tigareta, mergand de la alb si negru la rosu si fuchsia, cu insertii de paiete si animal print. Ba mai mult decat atat, in urma asistarii la show, revista WWD a realizat cateva schite care ar suprinde, pare-se, “aerul” colectiei. Oricum ar fi, this is just the Resort, the best is yet to come and Hedi Slimane has everything down his sleeve.

CR Fashion Book by Carine Roitfeld

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Cumva, nu stiu cum, odata cu plecarea sa de la carma Vogue-ului francez, Carine Roitfeld este mai prezenta, mai activa si mai fascinanta cum – m-as hazarda sa declar – nu a fost in toata decada ei in sanul glorioasei reviste. Dincolo de colaborarile, lansarile si stralucirile sale “sociale”, Carine pregateste ceva. Ceva maret, ceva care ii poarta exclusiv semnatura, ceva cu miros de istorie: revista CR Fashion Book, o publicatie bianuala très Carine Roitfeld.
Primul numar al acesteia va aparea in luna septembrie, dar Carine a vrut sa presare asteptarea cu ceva. Asa ca a lansat asa-zisul “numar 0” al revistei, conceput ca un soi de insertie in cadrul numarului viitor al V magazine, intitulat “The Youthquake Issue”. De ce V magazine? Simplu. Pentru ca revista doamnei Roitfeld va fi asimilata aceluiasi grup din care face parte si aceasta, Fashion Media Group LLC. Pana la formula finala, iata un mini-video din culisele pregatirii editorialului de moda, ce va aparea in numitul “numar 0”. Oh-so-Carine!

Introducing Daniel Bortz

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

German la baza, dupa cum semnaleaza si numele, Daniel Bortz este cunoscut si recunoscut la scara larga pentru beat-urile sale disco house, cu influente techno. Cu doua albume pe piata si mult mai multe single-uri lansate, Bortz este a rising force. Matter of-Fact ti-l aduce in exclusivitate, intr-un super eveniment organizat la sfarsitul lunii august. Pana atunci, insa, direct de pe EP-ul “Heal the World”, vine “Rescue Me”.

A la plage, s’il vous plait!

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

What more is there to say about swimsuits? When you see them, your heart, eyes and imagination start beating to that only sound of summer. You run to the seaside, you dive into turquoise seas, you feel the sand under your feet and the breeze on your cheeks, you’re all about exotic places and faraway beauties. For all that – tricky as it may sound – you always need your bathing suit. And for all that, we are bringing the beach to you!

…cause there’s something obvious and something sensual about them, something out there and something understated, a game of eye-meets-mind, a game of patterns, geometries, colors and textures, a game of hide and seek. Colorful and powerful, bathing suits make the ultimate statement about you. You can choose to wear them the classic way or the stylish way, the cool or the rebellious way, you can be retro or couture, basic or tres chic, accessorize them at your best. Wear heels and put on some layers, put some make-up on and get that beach hair plus the whole lotta beach attitude that will rock our night! Allons a la plage!

 

The Eroticism of Kanye

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Despre “dosarul erotic” al revistei 25, aflate sub conducerea creativa a modelului Anja Rubik si a sotului ei, v-am mai povestit recent. Pentru lansarea acestuia, care coincide, de altfel, cu lansarea efectiva a revistei, Anja a ales sa abordeze o formula…interesanta: fotograful si regizorul Barnaby Roper + controversatul Kany West.

Pentru ca sunt prieteni de ani buni, pentru ca s-au tot intalnit la evenimente si show-uri de moda, pentru ca Anja ii deschide fiecare colectie pe catwalk de cand acesta s-a lansat in industria fashion, pentru ca el, la randul lui, a cantat despre ea in piesa “Way Too Cold”, totul s-a inchegat si a dat nastere unui clip care exploreaza senzualitatea imaginilor din revista. “M-am gandit ca ar fi interesant sa facem in asa fel incat sa para ca patrundem in mintea, in capul lui Kanye”, a declarat Anja. “Nu e pornografic, dar este foarte senzual”, a continuat aceasta. Concluziile in imaginile de mai jos.
