"Your clothes may say disco, but your eyes say rock'n'roll"


Sisters' Business

Is it just me, or are the couples of sisters taking over fashion?
Seems that lately, more and more siblings have been hoarding covers, launching clothing lines, or modelling.

You don't believe it? Let's try to play a little family's association game...

First ones are:

These sisters launched on 2009 the first Twenty8Twelve collection. Sienna said about it "When you grow up together and share a life as each other's half until you leave home, it's inevitable, or was at least for us, that you share an appreciation of a similar aesthetic." Actually, on the brand website you can find a Working Together section, where you can read that Savannah made Sienna's first fancy dress costume at the age of eight, and also even see the pic.

Ok, so sisters with their own couture fashion label... that bring us to:

The Olsens are questionless fashion icons; not only being always regular in front rows or magazines (last one has been Vogue's Best Dressed issue) or for being ambassadors of the boho chic style. They've also had always an interest in creating fashion themselves. They started by creating a clothing line in Wal-Mart stores across North America for girls ages 4–14 as well as a beauty line. On 2007, the pair also started a new line for The Row (their own brand), entitled "Elizabeth & James", named after their siblings.

Bonus sister. Lizzie Olsen, last one to arrive. She's also an actress as well but she's already made a Nylon magazine cover; and everybody is now keeping an eye on her.

So we're talking about sisters that are actresses but also with a presence on fashion, even lately having appeared in a magazine cover... I know who's next:

We've already dedicated a post to these sisters. They're not only all over magazines, on covers or articles (W magazine has been the last one), but also are very close to the designers. Youngest one, Elle, is been in The Curve of Forgotten Things, Rodarte’s newest short and covered Love Magazine on her own. Her older sister, Dakota, with a longest career, has already appeared in more covers (Marie Claire, Dazed, Flare, V...) and has  Marc Jacobs campaigns, the last one for the Lola perfume.

And well, if you want to talk about someone who's made loads of campaigns...

The English model Moss has had campaigns with major Italian, French, American, and British designers; she has been featured in fashion spreads in most major fashion magazines; she has appeared in music videos, provided vocals for songs... And as our previous couples of sisters, Kate Moss has as well released several collections for Topshop and four fragrances. And lately, she married Jamie Hince on 1 July 2011. Spotted at her half-sister Kate’s wedding as a bridesmaid, 13 year old Charlotte “Lottie” Moss is said to want to follow her supermodel sisters footsteps.

 Let me see, British models with a younger sister following their steps... Yep, I know more of those:

They were influenced by the fashion industry from a very young age, thanks to their mother, head of sales section in British department store Selfridges. Poppy has taken hold of the New York scene, imposing its delicate and informal style. Socialité and blogger, she was named ambassador for Chanel and has starred in ad campaigns for brands such as Mango and Laura Ashley. At 18 years old and with a Burberry campaign and modelling for Asos already under her belt, Cara is set for big things. With her elder sister already an established model, her social circle is filled with the youngest, coolest rising stars.

Fine, more sisters modelling, here we go.

Georgia and Elizabeth share tastes and profession: both are reputed models which is not surprising considering that they are daughters of Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger. Both of them began at an early age his adventure in fashion, clearly demonstrating that it was the way they wanted to go. The earliest one was Elizabeth, who just at 14 years abandoned his studies to take this path that has led to stardom. Georgia repeated this pattern but she waited until 17 to become the face of Hudson Jeans. These girls are typical of the covers and advertising campaigns and two of the names that promises them further in this sector

Mom was a model and dad is a Rolling Stone? Wait, this sounds familiar:


Daughters of Keith Richards an Patti Hansen, actually, these sisters appeared on a Tommy Hilfiger campaign alongside with Elisabeth Jagger. Theodora has guest-edited one issue of L'Officiel, modeled for Karen Walker label, appeared on the cover of Lucire and became the model and muse for New York City premium denim collection 4Stroke Jeans. Alexandra's face has appeared in established magazines such as Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair, ID magazine, Harpers Bazaar...

And the list could go on and on... 


Rossy de Palma for Christian Louboutin

French iconic footwear designer Christian Louboutin celebrates his 20 years of creations with the publishment of his first book. A beautiful tome featuring the designer's most iconic styles as well as an insight into his influences and photos from his personal archives. Dita Von Teese, Diane von Furstenberg, Kristin Scott Thomas, Rossy de Palma, Arielle Dombasle, Farida Khelfa, Mika, Gareth Thomas .... all the creative muses and friends were present to participate in this book too.

Rossy de Palma & Christian Louboutin

 I decided to choose Rossy de Palma among all the celebrities in the book because she's a great Spanish artist. Described by many as a Picasso come-to-life, Rossy de Palma broke the rules of beauty and became an iconic fashion character. Discovered as an "Almodóvar girl", she also acted in Robert Altman's "Prêt-à-Porter" and many other french films. She has modelled and has been muse for designers such as Sybilla, Thierry Mugler and Jean-Paul Gaultier.

In this video -her shooting for the book- she's just everything she is: a smart and intelligent woman, with a great personality, original, witty and very funny.
Quoting Man Ray and coming up with statements like this:
"Women's relationship to shoes is similar to women's relationship to men. We can't live without them but living with them is so painful!"


If life gives you lemons...

November Lookbook: Zara Risks

Looks like in Zara Woman they have finally decided to be a bit more audacious and drop the serious and minimalist (you can even say boring) style they had been using as a common pattern in their two last months' lookbooks.

This month they dare to take a little risk in the outfits by mixing prints and styles; even including a bit of a grunge inspiration in some of them, which would have typically been more likely to appear on the TRF line.

The result -though may not be made to satisfy most of the public as this brand normally tries to- is definitely a much more interesting and inspiring series of looks.


The Angora Sweater

This is the first post for the FFF (Film Fashion Flashback) section.

Film: "Paris, Texas" (Wim Wenders)
Still: Nastassja Kinski wearing a pink angora backless sweater/dress.

As Spanish critic Carlos Pulmares said:
"Nastassja Kinski was the best thing Klaus Kinski did"

What did you do last Friday night?
Domenico Dolce, Steffano Gabanna and Vogue Italia's editor Franca Sozzani were in the "Express Yourself" party in the Dolce & Gabanna Shangai boutique.

I'm sure all of you have already seen loads of celebrities wearing the sequin dresses by this fashion house collection, all of them looking shiny and stunning; this party wasn't an exception to it.

So let's pay attention to the gentlemen who attended the event this time.

On the left you have actor Hu Ge, wearing a classic and well accomplished polished gentleman look.
On the right model Hao Yun Xiang, pulling off a more risky look with a bit of a grunge touch.

How to make the new Candy Magazine cover

What Does Iggy Pop Smell Like?

Iggy Pop has been revealed as the new face of Paco Rabanne's new fragrance "Black XS L’Excès".

According the to Daily Mail:  "Paco Rabanne's Black XS L’Excès, which will have both a men's and a women's version, will debut in France in January next year, accompanied by a billboard and television campaign with Pop as the star. The name of the fragrance - French for excess - suits the American-born singer, who was once one of the music industry's most anarchic figures. Renowned music video director Jonas Akerlund - he of the recent Girl Panic! Duran Duran music video starring 90s supermodels - will be directing the TV commercials, which will screen in the new year."

Though this punk legend had already discontented his fans by  letting "Lust for Life" be used for many years in ads for Royal Caribbean, or by starring in an insurance campaign on british TV (said to be almost as unsettling as Johny Rotten's Butter commercial); his collaborations with fashion world have usually been met with acclaim by critics.

Even in this blog we dedicated a post to his Love Magazine cover, but I'm afraid this time I'm not a fan of his choice. The image for this ad is weird, he looks like he's having "No Fun" holding that huge bottle of fragrance.
