January 13, 2011

Absolutely NEEDED this campaign on this blog. So ethereal, calm & sensual. Julia Nobis and Melissa Tammerijn radiate in Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2011 shots by Willy Vanderparre. Photos sourced from TFS.

I just lose my ability to breathe or speak over this campaign. DEF recommend reading Julia Frakes‘ write-up on it over on her Tumblr here.

Oh, and for the curious and/or clueless: How to pronounce “Proenza Schouler!” :p

Richard Chai LOVE – Nudity of the Heart – New York Fashion Week S/S 2011

September 10, 2010

What a fitting collection for Richard Chai’s LOVE line! Devoid of embellishments and sequin and all things flashy, what we see here is the personification of love; nudity of the heart. Everything is so delicate and tranquil. He had me at palazzo pants, let me tell you. I like the idea of incorporating boyfriend blazers and working with layers in a way that, to me, feels like waking up in the morning wrapped and rolled up in mounds of soft sheets. Ever had the best dream you’ve ever had of your boyfriend or girlfriend? And woken up comfortably smiling? That dreaminess is something else I pick up here. ~And I had to lead the gallery with one of the very best in the business, (and a personal favourite), Hanne Gaby Odiele in a sheer top and cobalt blue trousers. Notice the Oxfords throughout have a bit of a sparkle to them, which is as far as he went with runway glitz. From Style.com:

All the prints, the embellishment, the embroidery, all of those things are still in the collection,” said Chai, speaking at his studio the day before his clothes hit the catwalk. “But what I’m showing on the runway is not that.”

I imagine these pieces felt like Heaven for the models to wear! Melissa Tammerijn opened. Saw some lovely familiar faces like Liu Wen, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Ruby Aldridge & Sigrid Agren. With fantastic grace, Frida Gustavsson preceeded Jac, who closed.

Abbey Lee Kershaw – LEWITT Ad by Ryan McGinley – Clothes to Die For, Metaphorically!

August 3, 2010

Adorable garments in this superbly shot ad. There’s conjecture circulating that slams it as “pro-suicide” and “tasteless” but I don’t see it. Sounds like hypersensitivity rearing its head again. I feel interpretation is alive in all art; fashion, videography & advertising being no exceptions.

My take on this: “Clothes to die for.” ~Metaphorically speaking.

Pity I can’t find look-book shots of the outfits. If/when I do, I’ll update this post with them.

Stella McCartney – “We Don’t Call It Resort!” Spring 2011 Collection – Best of Season

July 28, 2010

I really can’t get enough of this collection. Aside from adoring every single look, I’m committed to its energy. What I get from this collection is pure glee. It’s just a joyous romp of flora print mini-shift dresses, all-encompassing brightness, lacy lounge-around attitude & oh so much leg! How fabulous is my favourite look? 20th, first pic posted. The sky-printed jacket riding high, the chic collar beneath and those playful shorts. The layers this look creates with prints is so harmonious. The woman who wears this outfit IS wearing Spring itself.

Of all the collections in Resort season, I think this one best encompassed Spring. It reminds me of champagne and sunshine.

And I can’t even begin to describe the whimsy of Stella’s Garden Party presentation. Music, models dancing, catering, drinks flowing. . . it’s a celebration of life, of love, of the paradise all around us and enjoying it looking radiant. That’s fashion!
