fashion: D&G send out the big chests for men in SS/12 . . .

24 Jun

Are you a D&G man?  Well chances are you might very well feel like one, but bigger chance is you probably don’t look like one.  Well that is unless you look like one of Milan’s finest models – especially if you’re planning on wearing next seasons look which is something like an ethnic safari – not we’re not entirely sure what it means either . . . but what we do know is that this collection is not for mere mortals.

fashion: Jennifer Lopez strikes a pose for Tous.

14 Apr

Jennifer Lopez is enjoying something of a career revival, with high strikes on both the Billboard and international charts and her success on American Idol.  Stepping out as the face for jewellery brand Tous for their new Spanish-designed Oriente jewellery collection she strikes a fun, feminine pose, in a colorful ad campaign photographed by the prestigious Ellen von Unwerth.

Geishas inspired this collection, which features eastern symbols on kimono prints and fans, and lotus flowers on delicate pieces of jewelry combining gold with natural gems and diamonds.

A few months ago we heard that Jennifer Lopez was to take Kylie Minogue’s place as the face of Tous. The brand signed the sexy Latina with the aim of opening new horizons across the Atlantic. Rosa Tous traveled to Los Angeles to supervise the photo-shoot for this spring summer line, which is already available in Tous outlets all over the world.

fashion: hotness! Jessica Alba for Italian Vogue

12 Apr

Speaking exclusively to Italian Vogue, for their latest issue.  Jessica Alba says that “Fashion represents one’s identity” and goes onto say that “After the pregnancy, I felt liberated. I learnt to accept my body and to give less importance to my appearance”.  Given that the fantastic-4 star is currently pregnant with her second child we can’t imagine where that liberation might take her from this raunchy shoot, but whatever the direction, it looks set to heat the mercury – that’s for sure!

fashion: Christophe Decarnin’s departure from Balmain.

8 Apr

His designs have single handedly made the 80’s cool again.  His influence SO great that his was the show not only the high street but also his peers looked to as a thumb in the air for the season ahead, but alas no more Christophe at Balmain.

Cathy Horyn writing in the New York Times has hinted that Christophe Decarnin’s departure from the fashion house he made into such a success may be because of, rather than despite, the glory years of Balmania, and the consequent pressure to come up with a new, equally profitable formula.

Ms Horyn, who knows M. Decarnin personally, also points to the fact that he is a ‘shy and introverted,’ individual, who ‘may have been more vulnerable than others to that pressure.’ We will watch and wait and see whether Decarnin will chose to re-enter the fashion fray, or if he’ll go the way of Helmut Lang (who is now an artist), or Hedi Slimane (photographer).

One more thing – the successor to Decarnin is thought to be someone already working at Balmain, a former member of his team. Horyn wonders if this will turn out to be British stylist, Melanie Ward. She is an extremely interesting character, who made her name styling Kate Moss, and working with the photographer Corine Day, as part of a sort of dynamic trio. WATCH THIS SPACE, readers!
