December Flair

November 25, 2008

In December issue of Flair Magazine, we have a great editorial to see, and we can also know a very good photographer whom I haven`t heard before, Kenneth Cappello.

He started his career in 2001, with skateboarding and punk rock style. he has photoshot for well-known magazine as iD, men’s vogue, vanity fair, dazed & confused, GQ, flair and mixte.

In this editorial you can see that, the model is a punk rock girl. The editorial looks very dark. But it is interesting to remember the punk-rock-girl style isn`t on the costumes, but on the hair and make up.

The model is Yulia Kharlapanova, and the stylist is Daniela Paudice.





You can also have more information of Kenneth Cappello on his official site, kennethcappello.com.

Page Six shocked us today!

November 18, 2008

Page Six is known by releasing big rumours, and this time it affected the Fashion Industry. It says that Anna Wintour is thinking about retirement. I’m wondering whether it is possible or not. PS says also that her contract with Vogue is up soon.

For the ones who don’t know Anna Wintour (do those have the right of living ?), She is the editor-in-chief of American Vogue (the most important fashion publication in the world), she’s held this position since 1988, when Grace Mirabella left the magazine. She was born in London in 1949, she became interested in fashion as a teenager, and all over the years she became a very respected icon in the fashion world.

The sources (always them) said that she is has been putting out feelers to intimate friends recommending a possible replacement to S.I. Newhouse. S.I. NewHouse is chairman of the Advanced Publications, which publish many brands in the world of magazines as, Vogue, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and Portfolio.

If this rumour is true I have to tell that she’ll be sorely missed by everyone on this industry, which she’s been helping to build. Lets wait and see the next episodes

Vogue Uk Unbelievable Fashion

November 12, 2008

I stopped my attention for this editorial of December VUK, because it has its unbelievable thing. You can notice that there are a lot of editorial around the fashion world and the unbelievable thing of this one is that it doesn’t need anything but the clothes.

One editorial can be made by various things as environment, production and whatever. But this one we have perfect clothes and beautiful make ups. I’ve discovered great designers whom I didn’t know as, Yohji Yamamoto, Gareth Pugh, Hussein Chalayan and Thierry Mugler.

All the clothes has some things in common. They are all old collection of great designers. And they are coloured, large and loose. Check it out!

This gold one is so fucking creative and different. The only things that you can notice are that it has a huge volume, and It is short. It seems that is made by some gold ribbons and It has a very loose sleeve.

Hussein Chalayan was the designer whom more amazed me. I was wondering how could I don’t know him. He was born in Turkish in 1970. He moved with his family to London and there he studied design. This Hussein look on the editorial was taken from the London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2000. His collection on this time was very clean and plain, but in the end of the runway the things start be very creative like chair cover becoming a dress and then the chair become a suitcase. What the hell? The runway ending was when the model stepped into the middle of the coffee-table and then it became a skirt.

For this collection Hussein celebrated his 10 years of his career. The Groningen Museum displayed in large-scale solo exhibition of his work. He deserved it.

Kate Winslet by Steven Meisel on Vanity Fair

November 6, 2008

I can’t believe that in the Fashion world exists people whom are discussing this pathetic things about if she is airbrushed on the pictures or not. I mean, Whatever!

That is not the point. The things that need to be analysed is if the pictures are good or not. She looks amazing. The photos are very intensive. She looks feminine and elegant.

The pictures are sensual, sexy and any others synonymous of it. The last picture below she is so fucking great. the movement of the hair, her desire face are perfect.

And please, we don’t need to talk about the dress, do we?

Comment what you think about this pathetic controversy.

Balenciaga Spring Summer 2009 women PARIS

November 3, 2008

Nicolas Ghesquiere, the Balenciaga fashion designer, is very professional and he made in this season (spring summer 2009 women), a great innovative collection.

The first part of the runway, they are wearing a short dress which on the top there is a fabric stretched from the plain middle to the end making some drapes. the clothes on the beginning are very plain without any prints on them. the colours are very smooth. there aren’t curves on this clothes, they are very square.

You can notice some jackets, differents ones, because they are very colored and brilliant, and the coulours change with the lights. they were made by uncommon cuts. And I say the same for the trousers.

The men part is not different of the women. they were wearing suits with uncommon cuts and without curves. But you can notice they are still classics, but a little bit more contemporary.

The second women’s part, the runway goes to another way. It starts showing up some plain blouses, which are very clean but made by different cuts. The highlight of this part it is the trousers which have a very strange cut, with the black colour hidden by superimposition.

And then the dresses start to show up. They have curves and frills now. They are very colored and brilliant as I said before about the jackets. And they have sleeves stuck to the arms, with different fabrics without any brightness.

Valentino: The Last Emperor

October 22, 2008

Valentino: The Last Emperor, produced and directed by Matt Tyrnauer, Special Correspondent for Vanity Fair magazine, is an intimate and engaging fly-on-the-wall exploration of the singular world of one of Italy’s most famous men. The film documents the colorful and dramatic closing act of Valentino’s celebrated career, tells the story of his extraordinary life, and explores the larger themes affecting the fashion business today. At the heart of the film is the unique relationship between Valentino and his business partner and companion of 50 years, Giancarlo Giammetti.

In production from June 2005 to July 2007, the filmmakers shot over 250 hours of footage with exclusive, unprecedented access to Valentino and his entourage. “We were let in to the inner circle, but we had to stick it out for a long time, practically move in, to capture the truly great moments,” says Tyrnauer. “Valentino is surrounded by a tight-knit family of friends and employees, but, eventually, their guard came down and they forgot there was a camera crew in the room.”

“Valentino was one of the first designers to make himself the inspirational figure at the center of the story he was telling,” says Tyrnauer. “He is a born dreamer and the last true couturier, who let us in on his creative process and also let us in on the life he built around him to sustain this process,” adds Tyrnauer. “He lives as lavishly as his clients and set a standard for the industry. He shuts out all that is not beautiful, and we followed him around the world to capture that special world.”

Valentino: The Last Emperor is much more than a fashion movie. It is a portrait of an extraordinary partnership, the longest-running in fashion, and a dramatic story about a master confronting the final act of his celebrated career. It will be a film and fashion worldwide event marking the end of an era. Shot in widescreen high-definition, Valentino: The Last Emperor will premiere at film festivals beginning in August 2008, with gala premiere parties and special events planned around the world.

I really want to wach this movie. It is so difficult to have fashion movies. And this one seems to be very good. Valentino was amazing in everything he created, I’m sure this movie is amazing. By the way, everybody wants to be in a fashion designer backstage.

This interview below is very cool, you can understand more about the movie.
