Fashion Goes Crazy

Fashion may be frivolous or wise, it may be expensive or cheap, could be serious or silly. But certainly it’s fun!

Steven Meisel created these animated gifs, as a preview for Vogue Italia’s March issue. The “Haute Mess” above is featuring some famous models: Joan Smalls, Coco Rocha and Abbey Lee Kershaw. But, of course, you won’t recognize them.

Kate Forever

Is this the good Kate or is this the bad Kate? I think it’s just Kate.

Jil Sander x Raf Simons (end of story)

 

Jil Sander Fall 2012. That’s a special collection, Raf Simons’ last collection for Jil Sander. A fact that maximized the visual impact and the emotional charge of the fashion show. Everybody agreed on the quality of the offer, no need to put out the remarkable finishes in every Jil Sander piece of cloth.  Everything is in the details!

Honestly, these silhouettes bring nothing new, but the color palette is delicious and the tailored details are incredible. The mini corsets, the high waisted pants, all these double face coats are good investments for a timeless wardrobe.

“McQueener” than McQueen

Replicants are like any other machine – they’re either a benefit or a hazard.

 

Armored Beauty

The latest issue of L’ Officiel Ukraine, captures Alejandra Alonso, well armored in Iris Van Herpen designs or Van Herpen- inspired outfits. Developing her sculptural silhouettes and her signature 3D structures, the Dutch designer is, undoubtedly, one of the major influences on the contemporary fashion scene. The upcoming Iris Van Herpen exhibition at Groniger Museum will present the first large scale overview of her work. That sounds really exciting, as Van Herpen is the designer who managed to challenge the very idea of contemporary  “couture”. What about the new “Fang” shoes, the product of Van Herpen’s fifth successful collaboration with United Nude? Awesome pieces, huh?

Alexander Wang x Die Antwoord

Alexander Wang, the designer of the new generation of American fashionistas, takes a step further with his T line S/S 2012 Ad Campaign. This time, he made an edgy choice picking the South African band Die Antwoord (who says he doesn’t have good taste?). The T campaign, shot by Daniel Jackson, is featuring Die Antwoord’s new single Fatty Boom Boom, along with a “behind the scenes” video, showing Ninja and Yo-Landi on the streets of NY. Enjoy!
