Lanvin Men S/S 10. Inez and Vinoodh by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
Very few campaigns make an impact in our image and information soaked brains but WWD’s preview of the Lanvin men’s and women’s campaigns have appeared and they are delightful. The energetic Steven Meisel ad of Jamie running down the hallway has already spread like crazy over the blogosphere. Read Alber’s inspiration for the ads, here. The men’s campaign featuring self portraits by the devastatingly handsome Vinoodh Matadin with the lovely Inez van Lamsweerde is an impudent F-U to conservative ads for recessionary times. What we love the most is that, for once, Vinoodh is the target audience for a high end brand like Lanvin, a sophisticated, attractive man of the world…. and one that actually can afford it. Aspirational, indeed.
Tom Ford‘s A Single Man gets nominated for 2 Emmy’s (for Julianne Moore and Colin Firth).
Calvin Klein gets Kellan Lutz (say that 3 times fast). Kellan Lutz is the next young actor to watch in the fashion world.
Here’s a memorial to all the magazines that fell this past year.
Fashionisto reviews 2009 for Vogue Hommes Japan, one of our favorite men’s magazines.
Top cover model of the decade (hint, it’s not a model).. Jezebel via The Cut.
Photographer Amadeo Turello‘s new book is very sparse and beautiful, endorsed by Prince Albert of Monaco and filled with images of gorgeous women like Carmen dell’Orefice, Dita Von Teese, Fernanda Tavares,Maggie Rizer, Fernanda Tavares and my favorite 90’s models Tatjana Patitz and Carrie Otis. The Erin O’Connor images with the forbidding clouds is stunning and one of my favorites.
London is loyal… Looks like Burberry, Matthew Williamson, Pringle and a few others are staying in London for fashion week instead of heading back to Milan and Paris.
The future of magazines? Not for $800.
Fashionista cracks us up with this note on the recent Givenchy campaign, combining fashion and pop culture in a good way and not in a Lindsay/Ungaro kind of way.
Plus size models are so in.. let’s hope they are here to stay.. Fashionista gives us the scoop.
If you’re going to start a blog about your favorite model, this is how to do it… it’s funny, critical yet insightful and well written. Makes us want to be a model so that someone can do one about us (almost).
