The 50 best artist collaborations in fashion :
In a list of art and fashion collaborations there is a bit of blurring that happens. There are moments when designers becomes artists, artists become designers, or both entities becomes something different entirely. Both the genre of fine arts and fashion design not only bare the affect of trend and social temperature, but their changing relationship to one another is also reflective of society as a whole. Perhaps some interventions and collaborations are more successful than others, but what is primarily important is the dabbling, the mixing, and fantastic results that come from the fanciful play of the privileged creatives.
25 pphoto shopped photo we wish were real :
Photoshop scandals often make headlines, showing stars with cellulite or models missing limbs. But looking beyond magazine covers and fashion shoots, Photoshop becomes a valuable tool in the hands of artists, where creatives magically make alternate realities just by using the program. Photo manipulation has opened up the ways in which we can create a world that fits our own imagination and, sometimes, it is done so well that we can’t tell what is real and what is not. Take a look at these 25 Photoshopped Photos We Wish Were Real, and watch your wildest dreams (and nightmares) take shape.
Must -see fashion documentaries :from the upcoming carine roitfeld docu to the september issue.
For those of us who fantasize about spending a day in Carine Roitfeld’s shoes (guilty), a soon-to-be-released documentary is sure to satisfy that itch. The film, titled Mademoiselle C, promises an inside glance into the glamorous life of the ex Vogue Paris editor in chief. The documentary, directed by Fabien Constant, features Roitfeld in her natural element: toasting designers at fashion shows, mingling with the industry’s who’s who at parties and adding her je-ne-sais-quoi to photo-shoots. The roster of famous faces due to have cameos in the film is impressive, to say the least. (Karl and Kanye are among them.) The film, due to be released in September, was put out by the same production company that gave us a behind-the-scenes look at Anna Wintour (semi-smiling and sunglasses-free) in The September Issue. If Mademoiselle C is anywhere as revealing as its precursor, it’s sure to be a winner. It also got us thinking about our favourite fashion documentaries. From the publishing world to the private lives of top couturiers, film and fashion have long gone hand-in-hand. As such, we’re taking a look back at ten must-see fashion docs.
The Last Emperor Valentino: The Last Emperor explores the life of Italian designer Valentino Garavani, focusing on the designer’s retirement. Valentino stepped down from his label in 2007. A slew of celebrations in honour of his 45-year career ensued, most of which are included in the film. The documentary also focuses on the Italian designer’s inner circle, including his relationship with his partner Giancarlo Giammetti.
