Whats Poppington: Versace fall 2011 Campaign ads

The house’s Fall 2011 campaign is also perpetuating a new Versace era; instead of Mario Testino, who has done Versace campaign honors since 2004, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott were the photographers of choice, a Versace first. And rather than featuring a celebrity or a blonde — as is typical for Versace — the campaign focuses on the brunette Saskia de Brauw. “For me, it is expected to have the blonde girl, the sexy girl, and this is what Versace meant recently,” explained Donatella. “But I thought about how in the past, when Gianni used girls like Kristen McMenamy and Stella Tennant, everyone was always saying, ‘Wow, this is not a Versace girl, she is not blonde.’ Sometimes you need to renew yourself to work better and to make a little bit of a push.” Of the resulting images, Versace added: “It’s a glamorous woman and it’s a little pop, which I love. Mert and Marcus are very talented and full of ideas. This season is just the beginning. I want to push something different and new.”

Whats Poppington: Through the lens of Julian Schratter

With his insider perspective and a clean keen eye for a fashion moment no one captures the energy backstage quite like Julian Schratter. Take a look at his dynamic shots from Milan, from Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, to Vivienne Westwood. His shots were raw, un edited in your face, they looked very simple, but dynamic, just like a group of guys after a soccer game but with cigarettes…..Very Poppington

I think he is very brave and, most important of all, he looks completely acceptable and elegant. He has a real spirit and I like his work.” He also said “I got through this dreary winter by coming to work each day dressed in Cat-in-the-hat fur boas, striped pencil skirts, hospital scrubs, correctional-facility tops and brogue/espadrille/creeper-style shoes-all Prada. Some men’s, and some from the women’s collection.” according to Katie Grand, he bought two of every skirt from the collection, one from NY and Paris…..thats our Marc.

Whats Poppington: Francois Cadiere for Louis Vuitton

Photobucket

I’m always a big huge supporter of Artist, or photographers collaborating with major designers, the latest: Louis Vuitton. We all know, or some of us, Lous Vuitton is known for their great craftsmanship work on their leather goods, and monogrammed logo LV. The brand’s items like leather goods and leopard print scarves in particular have iconic meaning as the design house’s trademarks. In order to continue with such recognition the brand decided to invite an artist who could follow the creative stipulation of Louis Vuitton and introduce a successive change for the silk scarves collection. As a result Belgian artist, Francois Cadiere was chosen. Cadiere is recognized for his surrealistic photography and handmade collages with sophisticated hints. He designed the unique collection of silk printed scarves for the fall 2011 season aiming ‘to set off an inner voyage’ through the illustration’s source.

The collaboration leads into the synergy of Vuitton’s signature and Cadiere’s fantastic eye for collages. Continuing the LV tradition of inspiration, the artistic source of the collection are all taking from the Berlin’s influences. The most iconic designs of LV are presented in a group or series of Cadieres’s Uber fantastic illustrations called “Edun”. They resemble street culture and art posters that present the way of wearing the scarves. The idea was born from Louis Vuitton calling upon the expertise of Liberty department store. The future costumers would feel encouraged with creativity and explore numerous ways how to transform the scarf into belt, rolled headpiece or bow.
