Written by RenIt's hard to ignore the influence of fashion on film, and of film on fashion. After the success of Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan starring Natalie Portman, a ballet theme has crept into the world of fashion editorials. A well constructed shoot in Vogue Russia featuring Denisa Dvorakova showcases a ballet theme with one point of difference in each frame. Whether it be the navy ruffelled dress amid a sea of white graceful ballerinas, or a champaign dress positioned to contrast against a backdrop of tutus, there may not be a black swan but there's always a contrast. You can view all of the Den...Read more
Written by Daniel P DykesPrior to its unveiling Lubov Azria, one half of the husband and wife design team behind the label, described the Herve Leger fall 2011 collection as glamazon, an armoured retake on the bandage dresses that the fashion house is known for. And she certainly wasn't wrong. Figure hugging as always, this wintery take on a well-established formula is something of a revitalisation of the warrior fashion trend. While others have interpreted the warrior aesthetic as one of cuts and fabric, the latest Leger offering instead communicates its chosen glamazon appeal through adornment. Relying largely on a colour palette in shades of nude, black and white (with the nudes showing a subtle houndstooth pattern), Leger's adornment comes in th...Read more
Written by Daniel P DykesThere's something about British menswear designer Simon Spurr's autumn / fall 2011 offering that strikes me as being both revivalist and modernist. Such is the charm of menswear that it is always looking backwards in order to (conservatively) evolve forwards. Yet in Spurr's latest offering modern and revival seem clearly separated. Spurr is, after all, a gent with menswear pedigree having worked with the likes of Heidi Slimate and directed the suiting efforts of Ralph Lauren's Black and Purple labels. That pedigree sees his latest tailored offerings influenced by traditional men's tailoring, each suit having a distinctly British, romanticised Mod feel about. A young Michael Caine would have smouldered in each of these suits, thick se...Read more
Written by Tania BraukamperBackstage at Diesel Black Gold's fall 2011 show, models are smouldering. Hair is side-slicked into a rough, textured style that manages to traverse the territories of rock-chic and romance all at once, and make-up is as hard as the collection's tough leather pieces. Creating a perfectly coherent look isn't always easy, but creative director Sophia Kokosalaki just gets it. Today's completed look at Diesel is in perfect unity with the collection. The beauty look is all about the eyeliner, makeup artist extraordinaire Pat McGrath tells Fashionising.com. Specifically, it's lashings of Covergirl's Liquiline Blast being used to create the youthful, sexy look. As the girls and boys are preened and primed for the runway we catch a few mome...Read more
Written by Daniel P DykesAfter a delay of 40 minutes and with a verbal fight having erupted amongst two guests eager to prove that they'd arrived before the other, Monique Lhullier fall 2011 collection unveiled itself upon a New York fashion week catwalk decorated by bare branches frozen in the midst of Winter. With paced strings drowning out the sound of all else, strings that both myself and my Icelandic companion swear were actually from the soundtrack of Christopher Nolan's Batman, what emerged was proof that today's showings were all about interpreting the ideal of the women's gown and dresses. However, her pieces differentiate from the day's other standout show, Jenny Packham's, in that they don't feel exclusively for the youthful. That's a di...Read more
