Alexander McQueen AW 2011 Scarves Film

Alexander McQueen presents a short film created by Paris-based director/photographer Babette Pauthier, featuring our Autumn/Winter 2011 seasonal scarf collection. If you look closely, you'll see that the floating scarves have details inspired by Sarah Burton’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection: broken porcelain, armour, feathers and tweed. And, of course, you'll spot iconic Alexander McQueen skulls- how very fitting with Halloween just around the corner…

Cédric Rivrain - Selected Drawings | Books Part III

Self-taught draftsman Cédric Rivrain presents a distorted, figurative work, filled with an aesthetic and sensual charge.
His book offers a selection of 28 drawings inspired by three distinct universes – fashion, the study of the human body, and medical dressings – which the artist brings together through a single motif: beauty.
This collection of original works has been reproduced on a 1:1 scale. This graphical parti pris allows the reader to enter into the frame of the drawing and to discover a work of surgical precision mixed with the use of original materials, such as eye shadow, nail polish. The chromatic range from pale yellow to dusty pink, passing by steel blue, aligns with the fineness of the lines, whose fragility enclose hidden treasures.
The foreword is signed by artist Paul P., a friend of the author, and it lends, from the first page of the book, a character of profound sincerity.

Tavi´s Overdose

Tavi is omnipresent and we can say it cause these days in Paris we saw posters and posters of this little girl everywhere we looked at. I think that she is a bit scary cause she is super young, just fifteen, but at the same time she looks like and old woman. Sometimes I think about her like poor girl who doesn´t knows where she is into, I mean fashion system. It´s admirable her career, she started her blog with twelve years old and now she is the gurú for the new fashion generation. L´Officiel celebrated it´s 90th anniversary featuring Tavi Gevinson by Jean-Paul Goude. We knew she was on the cover but we didn´t knew we would have Tavi faces around us. Where we are going? What will be next?

Paris Fashion Week Diary

Paris is shining these days and not just for the shows. Weather is sunny but super hot and we weren´t ready for these hard days walking around the city at 27 degrees. It´s just crazy. I took some pics with the phone so the quality is not so good. The first show we went was Dries Van Noten, one of my fav. The collection is just amazing, nice shapes and beautiful fabrics. He is a genius mixing prints, textures, silhouettes...

At 21.30h we went to see the new collection from Nicola Formichetti for Mugler. The show started with a Lady Gaga video made it by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Lady Gaga, close friend of Nicola, appears on the video with  two silver teeth shining at the front, singing an inedit remix  "Welcome to Paris fashion week, I am Mugler woman, don't fuck with me, don't fuck with Mugler".

Next day was Manish Arora´s turn, the new creative director of Paco Rabanne. Everyone were glad when saw spanish actress Rossy de Palma wearing a Manish dress and ordering the models to sit on their place like her "domina". New tech fabrics, shining Swarovski crystals and feathers were the basic elements for this colorful collection from the indian designer.

After Manish´s show we went to Saint Germain where each season Ann Demeulemeester shows her collection. I falled in love with her last proposal for next Spring / Summer 2012  inspired in marrakech style but on totally Ann´s way. Cool, chic and of course Rock´N´Roll as always.

Friday afternoon we went to see Margiela collection and well... After Diesel group fired the whole crew who was related to Martin, the seasons are not too cool, at least not cool as when Martin were in charge. Anyway we can see some ironic pieces with the essence Martin had. 

Woke up early to see Haider´s show. His collection is one of the most anticipated of the week. Waiting on the Bercy Stadium ´s door we saw the "new celebs" of the fashion system as Anna dello Russo Vs Grace Coddington, Franca Sozzani or Suzy Menkes. The show was just amazing with colorful pieces in chiffon, leather and liquid lamé. "Imagine" from Antony and the Johnsons, song from his last album, was the theme chosen for the designer while the models were walking on the catwalk. Chic, elegant and fresh.

At 14.00h we were waiting at Tuileries garden the Viktor & Rolf show. Was a nightmare wait, the sun was shining hard and weather was so hot. Finally we got in but inside was more hot than outside. The show started with two huge skirt where on top were  Brigitte singing their pop music. When I saw the show I just remember the Courtney Love video "Mono" where little girls came out under Coutney´s skirt. The collection was great,  funny and sooo V&R.

Last show of the day was Loewe. The spanish brand knows how to make beautiful pieces  mixing leather and silk. 40´s style is coming for next season and geometric prints were the key of this collection. Stuart Vevers is doing a pretty well done job with the iconic classic brand. Saskia the IT model right now opened the show.

Miu Miu was the last show we went. Miuccia is a great bussines women and everything she touches  become in cash. As always she does a new season her last colletion was pretty cool. Lot of trends for next summer were just in one show. We really love Miu Miu and we are not disappointed with this collection. So congrats Mrs Prada.

The Death of a Genius

I just turn on my computer and I must to say that I´m so sad. I have as a home page the apple one where I just see the news about Steve Jobs death. He was a genius who inspired lot of people with his great ideas changing the technology industry, everything we thought as imposible, he made it. I really don´t know what to say... We lost the modern Leonardo Da Vinci.
