Miu Miu’s Ads for Resort 2013 are Awesome (Forum Buzz)

When you pull a cast of models like Hilary Rhoda, Caroline Trentini, Jessica Stam, Karen Elson, Sung Hee, Daphne Groeneveld, and Candice Swanepoel, you’ve already got the makings of a great ad campaign; add Steven Meisel and Miu Miu’s Resort 2013 collection and you’ve got something awesome. The bright eyeshadow the models are sporting may be a bit intense, but somehow it works on everyone in this varied group of women. Forum members are just as enamored with the campaign as I am.

“Can someone just pinch me right now?” asked GERGIN. “I think I’m dreaming…”

MyNameIs posted, “Wow, this is pretty great. Nice looking images. The cast is a wet dream and I say this as someone who's not particularly a stan for any of those individual models.”

“Caroline Trentini?!” xPedro expressed the surprise felt by several other forum members as well. “I think she never even walked for Prada or Miu Miu! Anyway, I love love love this,” he added.

I love love love this too. Obviously.

L’Officiel Italia Debuts With a David Downton Illustration on the Cover (Forum Buzz)

L'Officiel Italia - David Downton illustration

L’Officiel has come out with an Italian version, and for the first issue, the magazine took an unconventional route and tapped fashion illustrator David Downton to create the cover image. Forum members immediately recognized the illustration as a bit of an homage to the December 1991 Steven Meisel-photographed Vogue Italia cover featuring model Shana Zadrick in a dress by Gianni Versace.

Vogue Italia December 1991 - Shana Zadrick by Steven Meisel“That's a bold move to put an illustration on your debut,” mikel commented. “It looks a lot like an old Vogue Italia cover by Meisel.”

“It does, and it is, love it,” Miss Dalloway agreed. “Downton is so talented.”

Iluvjeisa posted, “I think it's inspired and an original, fearless take…not to mention that the illustration captures the best things about the vintage Shana Vogue Italia cover (the pose) and does not contain the vulgar aspects (cleavage, necklace)…promising!”

In addition to the unconventional cover, the issue features model Bianca Balti in the editorial Queen of Cats photographed by Marco Falcetta, and an article on actress Ariane Labed with accompanying images of her in a Dior ensemble. 

When a magazine brands its first issue with a fashion illustration, it gets a lot harder to predict what they’ll come out with next. Whether you like this cover or not, it’s tough not to be curious about what the follow up will be.

Martine Rose Launches Her First Ever Womenswear Collection at ASOS

Martine Rose is a London born fashion designer who is most well known for her edgy men's streetwear and signature shirts, which are defined by their intelligent cuts and colours. Now, luckily for us gals, she’s just launched her first ever womenswear range exclusively at ASOS, and we know that you’ll agree with us in saying that it’s long overdue!

Who is she?
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Rose, she’s a London-based designer who originally started her fashion career by designing T-shirts with a friend under the LMNOP label, but later decided to test the water solo. Her solo menswear label went on to receive unimaginable levels of success, which has also seen her collaborating with the likes of CAT and Timberland, which has paved the way for her exclusive womenswear collection at ASOS.

     

What’s the collection like?
Her debut ASOS collection features trendy sportswear pieces which are splashed with on-trend 90s graphic prints. If the sound of resurrecting 90s graphics does actually scare you and brings back fashion flashbacks from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, rest assured that the collection has more of a cool East London vibe than anything else. In other words, her trendy sports separates are totally wearable. To help you get a feel for the rest of the collection, it’s made up of Lycra jersey and bodycon fits.

Price points for the collection begin at around £18 for a graphic print baseball cap, and go up to a heftier £180 for a printed bomber jacket.

Check out the collection for yourself at ASOS

See a Preview of SJP’s Glee Episode Because What Else Are You Going to Do With Your Life?

Don't die or whatever, but Vogue.com posted a preview of Sarah Jessica Parker's guest role on Glee. She'll be playing a Vogue.com editor because Anna Wintour's daughter Bee Shaffer works for the Glee showrunner's production company, Ryan Murphy Productions, (his new project, The New Normal, was profilemoted in the latest issue of Vogue) and Anna Wintour might not like the Internet and she might not like network television, but she knows a thing or two about being a calculating businesswoman and it does not hurt the future of the Vogue empire to have its online arm paraded in front of the extremely covetable demographic of impressionable young Glee viewers.

Lily McMenamy Might Be One of Hedi Slimane’s PFW Exclusives

Paris Fashion Week has officially begun but it won't really begin until Raf Simons shows his Dior Ready-to-Wear debut collection this Friday. As WWD observed in its front page feature this morning, the Paris fashion story belongs to the two newcomers on the scene: Simons and his "Saint Laurent" (which we're still, I think, allowed to call "YSL" for short) counterpart, Hedi Slimane, will both present collections that stand as new beginnings for two iconic Paris fashion houses. The upcoming shows are as highly anticipated as a cigarette is to a chain smoker after a twelve hour nonstop flight. We are all shaking for it.

All this pressure can't be contained, and it's seeped out into the rest of the Paris fashion scene. Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, for example, isn't nervous about the pretty new girl that threatens to oust his Queen Bee status: “You know, I’m not a jealous person. I’m only jealous of people who can eat and don’t gain weight." But he's not exactly checking his ambition at the door: "It motivates all of us to work harder and find solutions."

Simons seems too busy designing clothes and being a darling to play any head games with his fellow French designers, but Slimane's debut was never going to be all about the clothes. Not only did the former Dior Homme designer change YSL's name once he took the helm at the legendary brand, he also relocated it to Los Angeles and wasted a lot of breath talking up his big changes to the press. He allegedly also fired the manager of the YSL boutique in Los Angeles when the employee didn't recognize his new boss on sight. Slimane has a ruthless streak which is for sure going haywire in the days leading up to his Saint Laurent debut. According to WWD, the designer's booked a whole crop of brand new models to walk exclusively on his catwalk. And Fashionista separately reports that they heard that 18-year-old Lily McMenamy, daughter of the legendary Kristen Samelastname, will have her modeling initiation exclusively on the Saint Laurent runway in what'll be a highly scrutinized collection.

Her card (above) was included in Next Management's show package, alongside Arizona Muse's and Aline Weber's. Who knows how Lily walks or how consistently she photographs, but based on the photo above, she has the same creepy, alien grace which fueled her mother's career.
