A new semester has started and a week of sickness. Where do I even begin to catch up on my lovely? For one, February is bringing us plenty of magazine covers that are really exceptional. First up, we have Lara Stone gracing the cover of Vogue Paris. Let’s note that this 70s, Gucci-fabulous cover is Carine’s 2nd to last. The editorials inside are sensational, but we’ll post about those later. Moving along, we have the LOVE cover with Lea T. submitting to Kate, which we find more sensual than the hardcore the cover implies. Can’t wait to see more from that. Last but not least, I couldn’t skip Alessandra on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar España for one reason: my devotion to Lanvin. I adore the fitted bodice atop the endlessly, flowing bottom.
No really, I can’t stop all of my anticipation for this collection. I was really excited for these pieces, because I am the Lanvin fanboy. While nothing is as good as the original, and I can’t wait to see the day I can accept no less, these are essential Lanvin pieces now made for H&M, the other love of my life. Swoon. Here’s a peek at the menswear. The trench, the bow ties, the pants; I want them all. Are those plum-colored shoes or are my eyes deceiving me? It could be all excitement and the fact it’s almost 4am.
Me thinks neither Indianapolis locations will be one of 200 stores that receives the collection. Oh well. It saves on the old bank account and the
innocent shoppers trying to get to what I deserve: every piece.
Lanvin is heaven. Always perfect and everything more. From airy silks, master draping, to perfect pleats and simple, yet interesting silhouettes, Alber never can disappoint me. My favorites include Karlie in her billowing pink and fuchsia gown, Frida in her perfectly executed opening gown, and let’s not forget the split dress on Lily and the wonderfully constructed suit on Abbey Lee. Perfection.
This is old news, right? I’m sorry, I just can’t hold my excitement. I am really eager to see what Alber has created for H&M. I’m doubting the items will be available of any of my Indianapolis stores, but if they are, I’ll for sure be purchasing a piece immediately. While I may be male, I’m sure there is a piece that I can wear, right? Lanvin is always at the forefront of my excitement when the Paris catwalks begin, so I’m expecting great things. What just raised my level of anxiousness is the fact that Natasha Poly will be modeling the campaign. Seriously cannot wait.
Along with the release, Lanvin x H&M has created a blog competition to bloggers around the world to register their blogs to be voted for a chance to win the world exclusive trailer of the H&M fashion show. Naturally I placed myself in, but who knows if I’ll get any votes. If you want, go ahead and vote for me. I don’t believe the winning blog has even reached 700 at the time of posting this. VOTE HERE I guess.
Lanvin’s campaign finally came out and I love the cast and the clothes, the makeup…a little too hard. The eyes in particular are a tad whorish, but the models are definitely working this campaign. We have Anja Rubik, Magdalena Frackowiak and Mariacarla Boscono posing up something fierce for Steven Meisel. Oh Alber, please tell me it is the last season for these tribal influenced pieces.
At the moment I find myself being immersed and lost in the sea of resort/cruise collections while listening to the likes of Patsy Cline, The Beatles, to Kelis and Goldfrapp. The eclectic mix of music is appropriate for the varieties of collections I have been studying. While fashion weeks tend to be Christmas to me, resort collections are essentially the pre-game to the whole extravaganza and gets me excited and fills my void until Spring or Fall fashion week comes around in the Fall and Spring respectively. Regardless how I fap to these presentations and jump like a schoolgirl, I believe I have created a list of my favorite so far into the season, even though after doing so I want to change a few. The list is my original list, but I feel I’d put Proenza higher with their amaze-ball bags and prints and I grow deeper in love with Stella McCartney with her rose, electric blue, and to-die-for florals. So here we go:
Honorable Mention – Lanvin
10 – Tied: Marc Jacobs
10 – Tied: Marc by Marc Jacobs
9 – 3.1 Phillip Lim
8 – Erin Featherston
7 – Proenza Schouler
6 – Giambattista Valli
If there’s something or someone I dislike more than the Transformers movies is the femme fatale of the franchise, Megan Fox. The amount of garbage that just leaks and spews from her mouth is beyond necessary and she truly is the trailer trash, poor man’s Angelina Jolie for a new generation, despite her or anyone avoiding comparisons e.g. Marilyn Monroe tattoo. BUT, and there is a big but, I really like this editorial with Interview. She really does work that bobbed wig and the mannequin. Reminiscent of Alberta Ferreti from ’07 and recently Lanvin, which she might even be wearing. She emulates a different form of sexy, rather than the seductive, slightly slutty side of what she generally pulls out and I’m really impressed. My only problem is that she needs to close her mouth, but for all I know she has some sort of impairment that doesn’t allow her to close her jaw completely, which could attribute to her incessant need to say whatever b.s. that comes from her mouth to prove that she’s not some bimbo. Well, guess what? No one believes that you don’t recognize your beauty or whether you have an hypothesis on how to cure muscular dystrophy or that weird thumb of yours. That’s about as interesting as watching George W. Bush compete in a spelling bee, which might actually be quite hilarious. Speaking of mouth, the sharp red lip and the contrasting black clothing that contrasts with her milky skin is indeed beautiful. Whatever you’re doing here, keep doing it, Foxy.
