The Biz : The Week That Was

April 26th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

GALLIANO + PARSONS

Who better to teach young designers about the ups and downs of the business than a true fashion veteran, former Dior creative director John Galliano is set to teach a Master Class at Parsons . The series, cheekily entitled ‘Show Me Emotion’ “seeks to engage its participants by provoking the power of emotion in context of fashion practice and exploration of intuitive, perceptive manners of investigational making.” Sounds like a fascinating opportunity for the students lucky enough to gain entrance. / LUCKY


PUNK STORIES

In the weeks leading up to the Met Gala Vogue and punk are becoming increasingly interwined. Case in point, the magazine’s newly launched ‘Punk Stories’ film series. Enlisting a new female director each week to create a cutting-edge fashion film centered on the theme of punk the films provide a sophisticated and luxurious take on the DIY down and dirty ethos of punk. Already they’ve had Cara Delevingne rocking out in a kinetic film by Quentin Jones (Cadence New York) that capitalizes on Cara’s larger than life personality and the rock n’roll spirit of punk’s evolution. The week prior Dree Hemingway mixed punk with New Wave glam in Mary Nighy’s soulful short.


NO ANGEL

Victoria’s Secret lashes back at former contest winner, Kylie Bisutti whose interviews regarding her forthcoming book have sent shockwaves through the blog-o-sphere. In an official statement the mega-brand denied Ms. Bisutti had ever been in the running for Angel status and said the following:

“Ms. Bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with Victoria’s Secret. In 2009, Ms. Bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn’t worked for us since that year. The prize for the winning contestant was the unique opportunity to a one-time walk in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Ms. Bisutti also participated in a swim photo shoot in 2009. That was the extent of Ms. Bisutti’s involvement with Victoria’s Secret. She was never a Victoria’s Secret “Angel” as defined by the terms of our Angel model contract. And contrary to Ms. Bisutti’s claims, she was never offered any subsequent modeling contracts or opportunities with Victoria’s Secret despite her multiple appeals for further work. She has repeatedly fabricated her work experience with Victoria’s Secret – including a relationship that simply did not exist.


COACH & REED PART WAYS

In other designer news, Reed Krakoff Exits Coach after 16 years. Krakoff will step down from his position as president and executive creative director in 2014, to focus exclusively on his eponymous luxury line. Krakoff’s utilitarian designs and style savvy helped bring Coach into the present and revitalized the brand’s aesthetic. Coach is looking for a replacement to take the reigns once Krakoff leaves, but a name has yet to be announced.  / WWD

Double Vision : Saint Laurent Paris

January 9th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Hedi Slimane’s dramatic rebranding of Yves Saint Laurent was one of the most divisive collections in recent memory; everyone had an opinion, some more hotly debated than others. While many found Slimane’s changes to be completely in line with the spirit of the house and a much needed makeover that pushed the brand into the future, others felt the overhaul was unnecessary, overly hyped and even underwhelming. Wide brim hats and seventies style suiting aren’t for everyone, but no matter how you felt about the Saint Laurent Paris ensembles themselves, you knew you were going to be seeing a lot of them. Like the McQueen visors and Prada stripes that came before them, those SLP hats were destined for editorials; fashion editors can’t resist a look with instant visual impact and Slimane’s designs are always distinctive.

Though the chapeaus are shaping up to be one of the most photographed editorial pieces of the moment, few stylists have strayed from the vision Slimane presented on the runway. Every so often though, the mood of the image goes beyond simply rehashing the nonchalant cool vibe of Slimane’s Le Smoking influenced style and pushes into expressive territory. Take a look at the way Lori Goldstein adds a touch of 60s glamour in the Vogue Italia shots of Fei Fei Sun, putting a more structured version of the SLP headpiece to good use but making it right for a completely different kind of mood.

First Look: V’s American Beauties

April 18th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

As perfecters of the themed glossy, V Magazine never fails to choose a winning subject to center its issues around. Their latest edition is all about Summer Americana, a concept that for most people, conjures images of backyard barbecues and July 4th festivities. As blissfully nostalgic as that all sounds, there is another side to it – namely the influence of stylish Americans on the current fashion scene. The designers, the editors and of course the models who have shaped our definition of chic.

This all comes together in Sharif Hamza‘s simple and beautiful pre-fall shoot. Featuring looks from New York’s premier labels, the story covers everything from iconic brands like Calvin KleinRalph Lauren and Marc Jacobs to current it-labels like Altuzarra, all in shades of icy white selected by Tom Van Dorpe. Two generations of American top models wear the pieces perfectly and the whole crew from current sensations Karlie KlossDree HemingwayArizona Muse, to outright legends Carol AltChristie Brinkley and Elaine Irwin, looks phenomenal.
