Docuseries following Photographer Christina Paik
The label's All girl biker gang movie by Partel Oliva
Another season another Dries Van Noten review/write up/general lovefest. Paris Fashion Week was the stage to showcase DVN's new SS15 RTW collection. Fresh from my recent Paris trip where I went to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs to see his Exhibition of his inspirations, I was reminded why I adored his style and aesthetic so much. It was a multi media collection at the Exhibition too with not only pieces of his work on display but lots of photos, runway videos and even videos of the intricate processes he incorporates with embroidery and beading. I could of stayed there for hours.
However back to the recent collection. Again not straying too far from his well known leanings to the world traveler his exotic prints and colours in this collection is the dream wardrobe of the sophisticated adventurer. The offerings range from cold shoulder, flowing dresses. Layered sheer long shirts over slouchy silk trousers. Topped off with long line jacquard jackets and low platform fur lined shoes. I just love how cool the girls look, but in a way that is effortless and inspirational. So with all that and my current desire I would like to ask the genie in bottle to grant me all these clothes please...and to add 6 inches on height so I can pull it off. Cheers.
Here is a nice video with the main man himself.
on Instagram I follow a variation of accounts. Bar my friends and family I follow the life snaps of Footballers, Models, Designers; even a bunch of cool Mums. Two accounts I had stumbled on and started following were of a couple and their kids. Just typing that sounds a little creepo but with the thousands of other followers it's safe to say there is just something that resonates with many to do the same. The family in mind are of John Moore and Hannah Henderson; and their two kids. John has a design studio and Hannah has a store of curated goods called the General Store. So, I have been following their accounts a while and the reason why I'm blogging about them is that my boy man Chris was working with a filming crew from the states recently and the main DP on it happened to be the cinematographer on a piece on the family for Kinfolk Magazine.
Kinfolk is a media lifestyle phenomenon where they have content over print, digital and events; inspiring homemade, and crafty lifestyles for the hip crowd. This video sums it all up basically. Beautiful people, homes, fashion; food! It's all there. I am not going to lie and say i'm not slightly envious as it all looks pretty perfect; however I am not silly to think this is everyday reality. It's still gorge though...watch the video and tell me if the Dad skating with the long haired boy is not the cutest thing.
Why not peek the whole photo essay on the family at Kinfolk'swebsite.
I should maybe start a tag for all the JR content I post on my blog. First it was my first mention of him when I discovered his work and also when I went down to be part of his prolific Inside Out Series when it came to London. This time around I want to share his new video documenting his time with Artist José Parlá in Havana as they work on their project Wrinkles of the City. This video gives a nice insight to the history, people and culture of Havana, Cuba and how their reactions to this Art project really defines the character of the place. Havana is a place with not external advertising, so no huge billboards, bus posters or bus ads so having huge visual pieces erected on the sides local buildings and monuments. There are some really cute people featured in this film, and if any of my friends who are going over to Cuba later this year are watching this, here is a little taster of where you will be going! :)
