“Blink” Inspiration: Resort ’15, ACNE

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

We hope that you liked our opening Resort’15 post yesterday, and today we move on from Giambattista Valli to look at ACNE. A very different label, and very different approach. Here we certainly still see the focus on extreme proportions and a linear, graphic minimalism but we also see a label that is embracing the desire for fashion that is, well, ugly.

This isn’t an insult. It’s actually something that the brilliant peeps at SHOWstudio have been looking at. Prada does it very well, as Miuccia explains ‘Ugly is attractive, ugly is exciting. Maybe because it is newer,’ and you may not get it now, but as usual with Prada’s cutting edge looks, you will get it in a season or two.

So, anyhow, back to the goods and here are our favourite looks from the ACNE Resort ’15 show. Watch out for those 3D patch pockets from Burberry too.

“Blink” Beauty: Stephen Jones launches ‘Wisteria Hysteria’

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Did you catch the little teaser video that we popped on to our Facebook page a few days ago? Well, here’s the official full video to launch Stephen Jones‘ inaugural perfume ‘Wisteria Hysteria’. The superstar milliner has teamed up with Showstudio and Henry Pincus to create a stunning fashion film to celebrate the launch, and to express the key elements in this scent.

The quote on the Showstudio site says ‘The work is set in a world that is both rococo and futuristic, and depicts a woman discovering a new dimension to herself, all while clad in L’Wren Scott. The deliberate contradictions of the scent – clean but sensual, familiar yet strange – are reflected in the protagonist’s complex new side.” We couldn’t agree more and can’t wait for a thorough spritzing.

Blink Inspiration: Vice Style Visionaries Part 3- Nick Knight

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

This is the third, and we think very possibly the most exciting of the Vice Style/ Blackberry ‘Visionaries’ series. We hope that you enjoyed our posts on Gareth Pugh and Diane Pernet from this series too.

Nick Knight is among the world’s most influential photographers as well as being Director & founder of SHOWstudio.com the fashion & art internet broadcasting channel.  He has won numerous awards for his editorial work for Vogue, Dazed & Confused, W magazine, i-D, and Visionaire, as well as for fashion and advertising projects for clients including Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein, Levi Strauss, Yohji Yamamoto and Yves Saint Laurent.

As a fashion photographer, Nick Knight has consistently challenged conventional notions of beauty.  His first book of photographs, skinheads, was published in 1982.  He has since produced Nicknight, a 12 year retrospective, and Flora, a series of flower pictures.  Knight’s work has been exhibited at such institutions as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Saatchi Gallery, the Photographers Gallery and Hayward Gallery and recently The Tate Modern.  He has produced a permanent installation, Plant Power, for the Natural History Museum in London.

In the video Knight speaks incredibly inspirationally and eloquently about fashion as an art form and the creative force that is Lady Gaga, as well as the current evolution/ revolution occurring within the way the fashion industry is communication and operating. Knight also talks about his respect for and working relationship with the Fashion Director at SHOWstudio, Alex Fury. Knight and Fury have been instrumental in changing the way that fashion is being communicated, particularly through the instantaneous reportage that they produce from the shows, featured on the SHOWstudio site.

Details- In Tiers

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Hopefully tears of joy for these delightful tiers, frills and ruffles. Volume is taking a new turn and we love it when its zoned through considered positioning of ruffles and frills. This adds a new dimension to silhouette in a really exciting way. Build up layers of texture. Play with sheers and lace mixed in with other materials.

Some of these styles have the look of being created on the stand by a pin wielding designer who has spent hours contemplating a toile. If only there was time to work like that!
