Altuzarra Mode

June 21st, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Altuzarra – Resort 2014 from Simon Cave Studios on Vimeo.

Joseph Altuzarra‘s Resort 2014 collection comes to life in an atmospheric film by Simon Cave that adds a touch of mystery to Altuzarra’s romantic array of looks. Manuela Frey, Kayley Chabot and Magdalena Jasek feature in the black and white clip, which pulses with energy and a killer soundtrack courtesy of Cave himself. When asked what inspired the cutting-edge clip Cave pointed to the line’s powerful ethos, “for the past few years I have to been visiting Joseph’s studio and I drew a lot of inspiration from his amazing mood boards. I wanted the film to have classic, chic, sexy and seductive themes but still be modern.”

Experience the stunning new film above and take a look at a few choice pieces from Altuzarra’s elegant resort collection below.

Hoarders

June 17th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

An apartment full of old newspapers and decaying takeout containers isn’t a particularly glamourous setting, but Interview takes familiar imagery from shows like Hoarders and Buried Alive to create a fashion story that explores the darker side of obsessive collecting. Ludivine Poiblanc (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) creates a wardrobe fit for a contemporary Miss Havisham using choice pieces from the pre-fall collections. Fabien Baron shoots Kati Nescher in a macabre style and the end result is one of the most original and haunting stories of the moment.
