Being a big fan of Nick Knight flower’s photography on instagram, I always imagined the scent behind the beautiful shots of the roses of his garden. And apparently I was not the only one…
Sparked by the imagemaker’s longterm passion for photographing flowers, Comme des Garçons asked Nick Knight to produce a film in celebration of their new scent, Floriental. Drawing inspiration from the cistus flower, which has no smell, the fragrance challenges the traditions of perfumery to reimagine a flower that has no scent. With no definite top, middle or base, each ingredient – from sandalwood and incense to pink pepper and plum liqueur – emerges and recedes in creative confusion. The film echoes the scent’s spirit – showing a flower breaking down and disappearing into nothingness on camera. (ShowStudio)
I am very excited to announce that I was featured on Vogue Italia, August printed issue. Whoop!
Together with Ced Pakusevskij, creative director of Fullscream, the design studio where I art direct the fashion projects, we have been mentioned in the piece written by Fiamma Sanò, and got featured with the header image “Intrinsic”.
The article talks about fashion films seen as the future of fashion communication and anticipates the first Milan’s Fashion Film Festival that will take place in the city in September.
Mugler Womanswear FW11: Debut womenswear collection under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti. The Fashion Show!
I never post fashion shows but I had to make an exception with Mugler’s one… The teaser ( “Anatomy of Change”), the clothes, the music, the set up (a custom-designed cathedral in a Paris gymnasium), the protagonists (Nicola Formichetti as creative director, Lady Gaga, Coco Rocha, Jessica Stam, Ruby Aldridge, Liu Wen, and Joan Smalls on the catwalk)…everything insanely exciting…Enjoy!
Every season I’m always very excited to see the new release of On Pedder zine! Pages and pages of the newest accessories from the hottest designers displayed with a stand out graphic layout. WOW! I love that! Here I post a little preview, my best choice. Make sure to check out their site to view the full book!
MFP-MariaFrancescaPepe’s AW10/11 collection explores the state of transition from human to animal, from life to death and vice versa as a condition of beauty. Leather, Fur, Hard Metal, Blood, Crosses, Skin, Teeth, Scars, Belts and Eroticism are all components of MariaFrancescaPepes’ new season dark aesthetic enhanced by corset-shaped dresses, the focus on the décolleté and the transparencies of a tough femininity. The jewellery is an inner component of the clothing: chains for trousers, necklaces that define the edges of tailored jackets and plated brass crosses stud the georgette as embroidery. A multitude of belts buckled with metal vampire’s teeth, fall from the back of corsets as tails. Statement jewellery pieces in the shape of 3D crosses and teeth complete the collection next to MFP’s infamous Tubulars reinvented this season in a sprayed pop-trash effect as if stained by a spill of blood.
The other night I have been watching “Coco avant Chanel”, the film about the life of Coco before she became a fashion designer. It is pretty funny to think that such an amazing character wanted to become a singer, a show girl, before getting into fashion.
Being a graphic designer I have always been fascinated by the beautiful simplicity of the double ‘C’ Chanel logo: out of all the iconic fashion designer’s it is the one that stands out.
“Simplicity is the key note of all true elegance” Coco said once.
But I am also enthralled by the way this logo has been stolen and remixed by the underground fashion scene. Here I post a collection of Chanel (or Chanel inspired images), strictly b/w, that I have on my mac. Hope you enjoy!
