Friends & Associates

April 9th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

With more and more designers blurring the lines of gender specific fashion; Matthew Edelstein‘s Spring/Summer 2013 collection for Friends & Associates, as seen in the latest issue of Visual Tales Magazine, is definitely timely. Matthew, a longtime stylist and creative director for the year old brand, studied fashion design first so the move to start the women’s wear line was a homecoming of sorts. The new collection as shot by the renowned Arthur Elgort and styled by David Vandewal puts a twist on all this; women’s clothes based on men’s iconic uniforms, worn on some of the season’s freshest male faces. We asked Matthew and David for their takes on the collection and shoot

Matthew: The Friends & Associates Resort and S/S 2013 collections are inspired by iconic uniforms of all kinds; we combine details from military and sport in strong color and updated proportions. These boys look so fresh we call them ‘Candy Land Cadets’.

David: We created with Arthur Elgort a sort of cinematic men’s fashion story around one of my favorite movie The Last Detail by director Hal Ashby in ’73 starring a young, naughty bad-ass Jack Nicholson. Navy sailors are ordered to bring a young offender to prison but decide to show him a last good time along the way. It’s a tough drama, but they become in a complicated way, buddies for life.

See the brightly colored Resort and Spring 2013 collections, available now, on Friends & Associates.

Bits & Bytes: The New U

October 21st, 2011 |Posted by Betty


U Magazine gets better and better with each issue. Their new cover, featuring Douglas Neitzke by Zee Nunes is a dreamy one indeed. For more from the issue go to U Magazine.

Fashion and photography

The one and only Bruce Weber, along with Nan Bush, relaunch the Bruce Weber website. If you know nothing about fashion, you will still recognize many of the iconic images for which he is responsible. Even more exciting is the prospect of Bruce and Nan stepping into the role of creative directors. Included will be “Bruce’s advertisements, selected short films, music videos and all-new WEBERSODES and short films produced specifically for the web”. This promises to be heaven.

Aww, we’re big fans of Costello Tagliapietra and so happy they finally got to tie the knot!

Vogue Italia wants YOU! Fashionista discussed Franca Sozzani’s new venture.

Style.com talks to one of our favorites, Liu Wen who shows us her view of the shows.

Calvin Klein is not only one of fashion’s legends, he’s a true game changer; here’s a short summary of his talk at Fern Mallis’ Fashion Icons series.

The very talented stylist and casting director John Tan chats with John Krupa who found his way to modeling, yes, you got it, right here on models.com.

Miscellaneous

We love that J Crew has gay couples in their catalog. I guess they would be considered the anti LL Bean.

If you happen to have $100,000 to drop, here’s a bespoke library from Assouline, super fabulous, right?

A tumblr suggestion from MDC’s Kevin, this truly made me laugh.
