If only...

Say what you will about (kooky/krazy/kreepy) Karl Lagerfeld, but when it comes to his creative directorial role at Chanel, the man is aces. Filmmaker Trevor Undi took Karl’s vision and interpreted it into this hypnotic 2 and a half-minute video comprised of clips from the French fashion house’s Paris-Édimbourg Métiers d’Art 2012/13 runway show, which took place in a castle in the Scottish highlands. Never before have runway-side iPhone photographers looked so, well, otherworldly. [Vimeo]

Fashion loves anything that straddles the very fine line between what is provocative and what is tasteless, and of course that includes romanticizing the blackened underbelly of society. If you don’t believe me, please consider the “heroin chic” phenomenon of the mid-nineties. (Also, consider the unsettling existence of a wikiHow article called “How to be Heroin Chic.”) So I guess fashion was like, “What’s gritty and ‘underground’ that we can glamorize with models and fancy clothes?,” and then they decided that prostitution would be perfect. Louis Vuitton’s latest short film (in collaboration with Katie Grand of Love magazine) features top catwalkers Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Saskia de Brauw, Isabeli Fontana, Lily McMenamy, Georgia Jagger, and Magdalena Frackowiak as Parisian reines de la nuit drifting about the city streets in the brand’s romantic, lingerie-inspired Fall ’13 collection. Their path eventually leads to the actual show, where they take to the runway in the same wares. I don’t know what they are trying to say with this vague storyline — clearly they are trying to say something — but the video is pretty, and the music is nice, and hey, prostitutes! It’s not too explicit, but there are a few boobs and butts, so be wary should you work at, like, a church or something. [The Gloss]

Kate Moss Tangles With A Cartoon Snake For Balmain


Well, this is rather lovely. Kate Moss starred in Balmain’s fall/winter ad campaign. Now, the brand has coupled up with Nowness to create an animated video version. In it, Moss fidgets and flops on a sofa while her hair changes color and a series of cartoon creatures accost her. A black snake slithers around her neck and plays with her cigarette smoke. A creepy hand tackles her face. What appears initially to be a fun illustration by the end suggests the girl prostrate before us is possibly haunted by darker forces not readily seen. We like.

In Model-land, 25 Is Really, Really Old

Model-turned-filmmaker Sara Ziff created a documentary on what life is like behind the scenes in the modeling industry, “Picture Me.” This week, she’s shooting behind the catwalk curtain at New York Fashion Week to make a mini-doc for New York‘s The Cut blog. In this first installment, Ziff talks to girls about age and modeling. Suffice to say, in this business, if you started at 14, you’re DOA at 25. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Crystal Renn Dances In A Leotard

These days, posting about model Crystal Renn poses something of a conundrum. If we say, “She looks like she lost weight,” it seems as if we’re as preoccupied with her body size as all those who couldn’t stop crowing about her plus-sized-ness when she was a seemingly fuller-figured girl. In any case, we think any woman with enough confidence to bust a move in a nude VPL bodysuit in front of a video camera is worthy of a round of applause. We’re going to make ours now.

Fashion Video Attempts To Sell Suicide As Sexy, Fails

Ryan McGinely directed this fashion video for the South Korean brand Lewitt in which model Abbey Lee Kershaw plays the part of a woman who kills herself by throwing herself off a building. Three times. In different outfits. So, you know, it’s like a suicidal fashion show. How … creative. Frockwriter depressingly reports, “it’s worth noting that South Korea has the highest female suicide rate in the OECD,” and adds, “The country’s most high profile modeling export, Daul Kim, committed suicide eight months ago (although not by jumping), part of an alarming new trend of model suicides – most of them by jumping.” Yeah, so, models and suicide. So glamorous. Or, you know, not glamorous at all. [Frockwriter] Keep reading »
