CHANEL SPRING/SUMMER 2011 PREVIEW + INTERVIEW WITH LAGERFELD





AHHHH LAGERFELD! 
Whatever this man says, I will agree with . I think what he says at the beginning of the video is a beautiful encapsulation of what luxury and beauty really is. This man is the definition of genius and we are but living in his world.

GARETH PUGH X PITTI 2011


GARETH PUGH PITTI 2011 - FILM BY RUTH HOGBEN from SHOWstudio on Vimeo.





Here is another video. Spicing things up a bit :/

Gareth Pugh, avant-garde designer and the one time apparent heir to the McQueen throne previewed his mini collection for Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy. Pugh was inspired by "ancient Italian architecture and religious iconography" and sought to juxtapose the old with the new. Pugh is more known for having gothic undertones in his previous collections, but here we see he has taken a slight detour and gone for...(gasp) colour! there is gold and cobalt blues. The gold dress with cobalt blue accents is my personal favourite :) sequined or scaled perfectly it looks like a beautiful frame or arch that would surround a Buonaorrti or Carravagio . 

Oh, by the way there is a pretty good short film to accompany the mini collection. It is as contemporary and left-field as it's creative director. fluid , Interpretive dance, LSD inspired special effects coupled with a soundtrack that sounds suspiciously like something Daft Punk birthed...

MY FAVOURITE IMAGE OF 2010

via models 



SO, 2010 is over and I'm sat here having gorged festive food equivalent to the weight of a small rhinoceros, and I'm thinking "what image captured my imagination in 2K10?" , no need to procrastinate , and i know i'm late with my one picture review of the year, but it has to be the above. It's just epic and towers over everything in terms of aesthetic and taste. Photographers Mert + Marcus capturing our divine gap-toothed lady in all her glory, bosoms aclutched. Carine left soon after :(
