It’s hard for a hardened fashionite to admit love to a single publication, being that there are sooo many options, and no mere mortal has the time, or the bank account, to purchase and privy all the amazing editorials produced each month in lesser known titles like Acne Paper or Purple Mag, which is why it’s refreshing for me to be able to admit that Harper’s is my hands down, favorite big box, kind of the equivalent of Walmart to Dazed & Confused‘s mom & pop, fashion glossy.
Just further proof that fashion folks are full of hot air.
Granted, we were super duper excited for the release of Anna Dello Russo’s accessory collection for H&M. Not only did her release party during Milan Fashion Week look enviable, we still are not done obsessing over her music video Fashion Shower. Unfortunately for the Japanese Vogue editor, it looks like her collection hasn’t created as much buzz as collaborations in the past.
The French fashion house Ungaro has had some difficulty finding its ground since 2002. The design house has had six different design teams in the past 10 years (and one famous mishap with Lindsay Lohan at the helm), so it looks like the brand is giving it one final go. You know what they say, the sixth time is the charm.
Though you’d probably want to raid the closets of designers, models and Anna Dello Russo. But who’s closets would they dig into if they had the chance?
Last night, FashionIndie found a fashionable port in the Fashion’s Night Out storm at Salvatore Ferragamo. We joined stylish party people like Anna Dello Russo and Hilary Rhoda to sip champagne and eat caviar while listening to Russian New Wave pop band Tesla Boy. See all of the fab photos after the jump.
The teaser for Anna Dello Russo’s campaign/home-made music video for her H&M campaign is just as strange as the editor’s personal style. Peep the teaser after the jump.
Anna Dello Russo‘s closet must be a mystical, magical place. Always seen in a different ultra luxe runway look, she simply never repeats an outfit. While the Editor-at-Large of Vogue Japan is a bona fide style icon all day every day, she steps it up for Fashion Week with some personal rules. One being, “Nothing succeeds like excess.” The Coveteur invaded her closet post-Paris Fashion Week to talk tips (it’s well more than being excessive) on being exceptionally chic from a suitcase through four cities in one month. They (and we, in turn) get a little insight into Anna Dello Russo’s life, wardrobe and soul.
When the air is fresh and the breeze holds a chill, outerwear becomes as important as innerwear, and your look becomes all about the jacket. Yet another day in Paris, we spotted our favorite jackets (shocker the winner was on miss Anna Dello Russo) and brought them back for you. Check them out after the jump.
Just one look at Aline Weber in “The Girl Who Rocks the Planet” from the latest issue of Vogue Nippon and it’s immediately evident who styled it. Living Bratz doll Anna Dello Russo has her kooky claw prints all over this editorial, shot by Giampaolo Sgura in arcades and on the streets of Tokyo. The lion heads, the Balmain, the Cavalli, the Versace, the statemenet eyewear and headgear — disco ball motorcycle helmet anyone? — it all speaks to Dello Russo’s fashion-is-fun/more-is-more aesthetic as well as her own personal style. I mean, I’ve feel like I’ve seen the lady herself in a number of these looks, or at least will in the near future. Take a saunter with Aline through the land that Hello Kitty built in “The Girl Who Rocks the Planet.”
Turns out the rumors were true — or at least half true. Jil Sander, the lady, is returning to Jil Sander, the label. The latter announced today that the former would indeed return to her eponymous brand after retiring eight years ago. “I am very happy and excited to be back. It feels like coming home after a brief journey,” Sander said in a statement. “The fashion world needs original voices and genuine signatures. I will do my best to, once again, join the choir.”? Meanwhile, Raf Simons ends his seven-year stewardship of Jil Sander with his final collection on Sunday, but what he’ll do after that is still up for speculation…
