Tim Walker recruits the ”Campbell’s” (Edie Campbell, Olympia Campbell,Roddy Campbell) plus Sophie Hicks to model Lamvin’s Fall Winter 14/15 campaign.The photographer’s vision is so strong that you come to forget all things negative ( for example that Mr Campbell isn’t much of a model) and enjoy,instead a Lanvin chic-surrealist party where.. ”anything can happen!”
Christophe Lemaire and his depart from Hermes’ creative direction, confirmed a round of last-month rumours that there is a change coming in the House of Hermes.Not that there is such a difference in sales figures,on the contrary, but the reason provided ”to concentrate on his personal line”, appears..half truth.His full statement was: ” “My own label is growing in an important way and I now really want and need to dedicate myself to it fully.”
Axel Dumas, Chief Executive Officer of Hermes.stated :”I am very grateful to Christophe for the passion with which he has addressed and enriched the expression of our house in women’s ready-to-wear.Under his artistic direction the métier has renewed its aesthetic and produced very satisfactory financial results. I wish him the greatest success with his own label which is so close to his heart”.
What is crucial to understand is that Hermes is not a ”one-designer’s” house,anyone could fit in as long as can follow the guidelines and work creatively on the House’s strong(indeed) dna .Not that Lemaire didn’t do that.But sales turned to focus a bit more on the accessories line rather than the womenswear one.A fresh face will arouse interest about the brand,still any ”newcomer” is expected to be more ”Hermes” and less of his personal style.Unless they somehow collide-and yes i’m thinking Guillaume Henry or perhaps Olivier Theyskens,who recently parted ways with Theory.Some also bring to the table the name of Isabel Marant,or the idea that Mrs Menkes’ ”outing” of Matthieu Blazy (Maison Martin Margiela) wasn’t irrelevant at all.
We’ll stay tuned with a sense of disappointment as to the actual boundaries a new designer can take the risk to push in such a well-established luxury House such at Hermes.
Not surprisingly,one of my favorite ad campaigns for the Fall/Winter 2014-2015 season.”First be a woman”,aided by sartorial elegance and personal style. Raquel Zimmermann is the epitome of class in this great spread, lensed by Andreas Larsson.
”There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the passion of life.”
“It’s about the beauty of Italy – we don’t really have Alta Moda here – we wanted to do something for our country.”
The Dolce &Gabbana Fall/Winter 2014/2015 collection was something of a performance,with male models acting as ushers and female ones being helped getting on location,(a private place in the Island Of Capri). The fashion crowd was seated alongside a traditional Mediterranean style house-hotel and the models reached the land via water,walking past the seated A-lister’s. Interesting,no doubt. As for the outfits,well,i find it difficult to say anything seriously negative about the work of the famous design duo.Of course,design/style obsessions are to be expected and ever present,but what else fashion is than the transformation of those very obsessions into art via a creative process?Oh,did i mention how much i like fans?I’m getting another of my own sometime soon,preferably customized!Just like being in a Visconti or early Fellini film!
The House of Valentino along with photographer David Bailey casts top models Maartje Verhoef, Ine Neefs, Josephine van Delden and Harleth Kuusik to star in the Valentino Fall/Winter 2014-2015 campaign and the result is a refined 60s look yet in an oh-so modern version.
To mark the 10th anniversary of “Who Is On Next?” the fashion scouting project organized by Altaroma in collaboration with Vogue Italia, targeted at the search for and the promotion of young, creative talents of Made in Italy fashion, an exclusive exhibition, designed to trace its history and honour the creative talents who have participated, will be presented in Rome.
Since 2005 to-date, more than 100 designers have emerged from this scouting and selection process. Italians and foreigners have chosen our country not only to develop their creations but also to make their dreams come true. In fact, here they have found master saddlers, textile districts and premium footwear manufacturers, leather goods makers and companies which, thanks to their expertise and professionalism, give life to signature collections designed for the luxury market.
“WHO IS ON NEXT?, defined by the international press as one of the ten most important competitions in the world, has seen the emergence of designers, by now well-established names on the international fashion scene who, in addition to their own individual collections, are also engaged in prestigious collaborations with leading brands in the fashion system.
The aim of the exhibition is to celebrate ALTAROMA and VOGUE ITALIA but, above all, those who now represent excellence, the new generation of Made in Italy fashion.
the new fashion generation
The exhibition will run through the 11th of September 2014
MONDAY 7/14/2014 – 19.00-21.00

« The thread, does not unwind but stars itself. It connects the cardinal points, the constellations, the stories. The yarn is a logbook. It braids and ties. It is the stitch that travels and it is this tiny unity that will cover and expand. »

“The concept is individual style, which was the idea behind my first women’s show in N.Y.,” said Ford about the campaign:“The campaign is focused on the personal, individual style of different types of women.”
Lensed by Johnny Dufort in London, the campaign features no less than 10 models, Gigi Hadid, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sabrina Ioffreda, Ella Richards, Valentijn de Hingh, Yaya DaCosta, Lida Fox, Ashleigh Good, Natalie Westling and Ian Mellencamp. As for the outfits advertised..allow me not to comment.Should you like it,buy it at such a gross price megalomaniac Ford gives credit to his work..
