Step Into the Opium Den With Yves Saint Laurent & Emily Blunt

Edited by

Classic old lady perfume Yves Saint Laurent Opium is experiencing a serious comeback, and Emily Blunt‘s face is making it happen. When YSL debuted the fragrance in 1977, the message was clear – Opium is an addictive perfume. More than three decades later, the scent is still viewed as guiltless provocation for some, “intellectual pollution” and an incitement to lechery for others. Click through for behind-the-scenes photos and a video teaser for Blunt’s Opium campaign.

Edited by

Andrej Pejic gets wrapped up in Nastassja Kinski. Brad Goreski channels Yves Saint Laurent. And Nicola Formichetti holds up two pork shanks. Is this just another day in the glamorous life? Yes, but it’s also Out Magazine‘s homage to some of the fashion industry’s best and gayest. For their 17th Annual Out 100 list, the mag enlisted the talents of Gavin Bond to create portraits inspired by iconic photos of the past. Mining the catalogs of Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn and Helmut Newton, among others, Bond’s photos serve a fitting tribute to the 100 queens, trannies, lesbians, and other assorted queers that showed that if things don’t necessarily get better, they at least get fabulous.

Alice Ritter Tells Tales and Recommends Some Fashionable Reading

Edited by

Jessica paid a visit to designer Alice Ritter as part of LOOKBOOKS.com‘s new feature, “Tales of the Atelier”:

Through the concrete and brick columned hall of the CFDA Incubator, past glass doors with names like Bibhu Mohapatra, House of Waris and Prabal Gurung etched upon them, sits a room on the end that houses the studio of a French expat with a beautiful concept. Alice Ritter works seemingly solitary in a tidy, brightly lit room with a towering cubic bookshelf, a sewing machine and inspiration all around. Her style rings from the authenticity of growing up in the late 70s in France, where Yves Saint Laurent was god and high power glossies were sacred. Having studied economics, she created a fashion lab within her home with her Brooklynite husband to pursue her true art of design. Poring over books and dissecting vintage clothing lead to her creating an aesthetic that is uniquely hers.
