Rag & Bone is hotly promoting its Fall 2014 collection, but instead of a traditional lookbook, designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright have released a series of videos to give folks an interactive look at the latest collection. The latest is an almost 13-minute documentary, chronicling the making of the collection from production all the way up to the big show.

Directed by Vern Moen, the short provides a behind-the-scenes look at everything from production to the runway. Cameras take you into the Rag & Bone workroom, with the label’s design team fiddling with patterns, removing pockets from jackets and adding all the finishing touches to the range, which includes meticulously adding paint splatters (by hand) to jeans. 

As with putting together any collection, there are a few hiccups and delays. At one point, Wainwright laments about some embroidered pieces that took more time than expected at the embroider’s, simply because so many designers were doing embroidery this season and the few locations in town were booked up with requests. 

The hectic nature of backstage is also perfectly chronicled here. Amid what seems like a million cameras and microphones, models get primped while sipping beer backstage. Georgia May Jagger, one of the many high-profile models walking in the show, quips that she would miss her turn on the runway standing in line waiting for some beer. We can relate. 

Peep the entire documentary below. (more…)

Opening Ceremony is Staging a Play for New York Fashion Week

It seems like Gareth Pugh isn’t the only designer looking to shake up New York Fashion Week. By now, we all know that NYC’s biannual fashion affair is more business-focused than creatively groundbreaking or experimental. The designer announced just two weeks ago plans to stage an epic runway show that’s expected to have live dancers. But his show won’t be the lone big production this NYFW. Opening Ceremony is getting in on the action, announcing plans to turn its show into an original one-act play.

Creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have tapped Spike Jonze to direct the play, which will be cast with models and actors. Jonah Hill of 22 Jump Street fame is lending his talents to co-write the play, though he will (sadly) not be performing.

We can only speculate as to what the play is actually going to be about. A drama about a hipster quarter-life crisis? A thriller about a fashionable zombie apocalypse? Or perhaps, since Jonah’s on board, the play will be a comedy. We hope so — if there’s anything a roomful of tired, cranky fashion editors need during fashion week, it’s a good laugh.

Even when she’s out about town for Kiehl’s LifeRide 5th Anniversary, Robyn Lawley still takes the chance to sport her much-loved swimwear. At the event, a fundraiser for amfAR in Manhattan, the Aussie “plus-size” model donned a sheer white wrap dress, which was revealing enough to show off a bikini top from her Robyn Lawley Swimwear range.

“I love an all white look! Wearing my #robynlawleyswimwear underneath this sheer baby!” the Wilhelmina model wrote to her Instagram. The plunging neckline allowed the model to showcase her enviable bust, plus the front slit of the dress made room for Robyn’s toned pins to play.

Her tousled locks and minimal makeup complemented the natural and effortless getup, reminding us why we love this girl and her natural beauty so much. The outfit wasn’t completely casual, though, with Robyn dressing up the look by wearing a crisp white blazer, a camel bag and dark tan pointed-toe pumps.

Online Retailer Shoes of Prey to Open Brick-and-Mortar Store

Shoes of Prey is taking the plunge into the brick-and-mortar arena. After five very successful years of women flocking to its site to design their very own personalised footwear, the online retailer is setting up shop at Westfield Bondi Junction in Sydney.

It will be the company’s first-ever, stand-alone store, although Shoes of Prey has given the concrete thing a go already. The custom-made shoe retailer signed a concession with David Jones in 2013, and if opening up a second physical space in Bondi is anything to go by, the department store space must be pretty successful.

Shoes of Prey is currently hiring for its existing David Jones CBD store as well as its upcoming Bondi Junction store. If you’re a budding shoe designer, this could be your big chance. You’re welcome.

31 Bits Taps Aussie Model Vanessa Milde for Fall 2014

California-based jewellery company 31 Bits has tapped Aussie model Vanessa Milde for its latest shoot, with the brunette beauty looking every bit the boho babe for the brand’s Fall 2014 campaign. 31 Bits’ handmade, tribal-infused designs are perfect for the girl who’s wild at heart, with beads made from recycled paper and calm yet striking colourways.

Vanessa was born in Adelaide, but she’s been living it up in Los Angeles for quite some time now. And while we recognise her face from walking runways for Toni Maticevski, Sass & Bide and David Jones, Vanessa has been modelling around the globe for big-name brands ever since she entered the modelling world at 15. Although her latest gig might not have high-fashion prestige, the brand’s mission is a feel-good one Vanessa can be proud to represent. (more…)
