Louis Vuitton ! SpringSummer'14 Campaign

“It was a very emotional shoot, and I find this shows in the images,” 
said Frédéric Winckler, Vuitton’s communications and events director. 
“It’s not a melancholic campaign. It’s really celebrating women who inspire Marc.”

Marc Jacons on his last campaign for Louis Vuitton invited all of his muses to celebrate the partnership 
that comes to an end with the french-maison.

Catherine Deneuve, Sofia Coppola, Gisele Bündchen, Fan Bingbing, Caroline de Maigret and Edie Campbell, the model hand-picked by Marc Jacobs to open his final runway show, are photographed by Steven Meisel, a long favourite from Jacobs, himself.

In a simple set, all that matters is the personalitie of each person, and the beauty of the Noé bag, reinvented and called for this season NN14, appearing with sequins, feathers, crystals or studs, made  by aligator or monogram leather.

This one above, is my personal favourite, not just because of the beauty of Gisele, but also from the simple 
and beautiful version of the Noé bag.
An outstanding must-have for next summer. 

Classic and effortless.

Balmain | SpringSummer'14 Campaign

Olivier Rousteign surprised everyone this morning launching the new Balmain campaing for Spring Summer 2014 starring no other than Rihanna.

The 90's are presented in this collection and the 'pop-star culture' couldn't be better represented... than with the iconic princess herself!
This is officially my favourite collection from Rousteign since he's comanding Balmain, because all the 'couturish' clothes are very urban and cool but with an effortlessly luxury. #Flawless

This campaign were photographed by Inez & Vinoodh.

Chanel | Cruise 2014

Before Chanel's last collection as Métiers D'Art in Dallas (wich I will talk about later...), weeks ago this time in Singapore, Karl presented the Cruise collection for 2014.

Karl presented a collection not to be called pre-collection, because is as vast and various as any other ready-to-wear collection. This one with the spirit of Resort were spoted in Singapore. Why? The label has six stores there, and counting... So the business have to roll, and that made Lagerfeld added some local culture to the collection. 
He 'reinvented the details'...

"I like to travel, but not as a tourist. When I travel, it’s work," he said."What I hate most is to feel isolated."

About the fact that he wasn’t interested in designing a studied themed-show for the occasion...
"I research with instinct. There are vague impressions of this part of the world only—except for one thing. I came across a photograph from the 1880s of a local fisherman wearing a four-pocket jacket and wide pants. Really quite Chanel, no?"

This were some of my favourite looks from the Runway...
I can see a more 'brilliant', young and creative Chanel, than ever before.

After the show, were presented the new short-film called 'Once Upon a Time...' starring Keira Knightley, Clotilde Hesme, and a “family” of Chanel models and friends. It imagines the scene as Gabrielle Chanel tries to sell her first collections...
You can whatch it 'here'

something Black&White

Há algo de intrínseco e fascinante numa decoração a preto e branco, que me fascina muito.
Não sei se será o ambiente mais masculino, ou os detalhes marcantes de acessórios escolhidos a dedo de extremo bom gosto.
Sejam cadeiras Eames, mantas Hermés ou acessórios de cor misturados e integrados em ambientes (quase sempre) industriais, mas acolhedores.

Gosto de ambientes que transpiram o lifestyle e a atitude de quem os vive e sente.
Estes são alguns exemplos...

Zegna Couture

 'the new éminences grises'
This is the theme for the new Stefano Pilati's concept for Ermenegildo Zegna new ad-campaign, photographed by Inez & Vinoodh featuring actor Jamie Dornan.

This campaign is the result of a new collaboration between Stefano Pilati and Zegna, since he moved from YSL.
He started and created the now called Zegna Couture collection, with much more quality, design and price-tag than other collection from Zegna before. And as said Alexandre Fury of London's Independent newspaper: "What Pilati did was give Zegna a fashion relevance, and a fashion identity."

This new collection comes also with Scott Schuman from The Sartorialist, as a new member of the Zegna family. 
Scott was invited to do an exclusive photoshoot in Los Angeles, enhancing the essence of this Couture line with captivating shadows.

“When I started to work on the last collection, I said ‘How can I make the Zegna man distinguished in the menswear landscape?’ And I thought, you know, a gesture of luxury. It can be translated in the use of colour, without necessarily looking like a dandy or a peacock. You can do it elegantly, all based on nuances (...) 
Let’s assume that our luxurious customer has everything already. If I introduce the use of colour, you can be formally elegant, but still quite original. That for me is the role that Zegna needs to take on menswear.”
says Stefano Pilati interviewed by BoF

With the new approach of this collection, comes the new Beverly Heels Global Store at 337 Rodeo Drive in LA, 
designed by architect Peter Marino.

During the SpringSummer'14 Show in Milan, this short-film directed by Johan Soderburg started the show. 
As Stefano himself explains: "I found out about the machines, organising a kind of a sound and concept that could show this industry from a contemporary point of view. Everything that has been done in the savoir faire, for me, was a bit boring. I wanted a kind of newer way.”

“Ninety percent of the time, a man in grey has a Zegna suit on and I like that idea" says Pilati

Karl's favorite for SpringSummer'14

Karl Lagerfeld talks about Chanel's SpringSummer 2014 collection... showcased at the Grand Palais in an 'Art Gallery' with beautiful accessories, colorful painted-eyes with an incredible ready-to-wear collection.
What was uncle Karl's favorite thing?

"My favorite thing is the new necklace like an earphone, it's two huge pearls, but in fact it's very flattering because the huge pearls give a beautiful light on the girl's face."
