Grandaddy Dior is FINALLY back! The last two collections were sooo ALIKE! They were so similar and I think I stated that. I was becoming very disenheartened with Grandaddy and John Galliano’s interpretation of his aesthetic. It seemed as if we were being given the same collection… just stuck back in the microwave. This collection, although it uses similar ingredients, DEFINITELY is new. Although the floral/gardener theme is still present, it is clear, that Galliano has again made Grandaddy relevant!
Lara Stone for early 2009 and late 2008 was the model to book. Right before Miss Karlie Kloss. In her latest editorial with Marlon Taxeira, she makes it evident that she’s not going anywhere. Rocking glam rock/grunge looks the two are photographed in what is seemingly becoming a photographic trend: shadowed, and incorporating some sort of fence, or a filter in front of the camera.
Instead of circulating a lookbook, the people over at Percival decided to put out a short film. While the acting isn’t all that intense, that isn’t the purpose of the film, the clothing is. As you an see the film, and the designs revolve around the key. You can spot it at various places in the film. Whether or not they win an award for the crisp cinematography though, I know what I want to look for when I get money to go shopping.
This was hard… it was the hardest one in a looong time! I saw one picture from the campaign and I knew, I just KNEW that I’d have to post about it so I starred it and went to the next post. Now when I started to create the post I thought, that’s alot of pictures, I’ll just divvy it up into men’s and women’s and it should be easy. I have found that it wasn’t. I love EVERY picture of the editorial and I feel like it’s a disservice to only show four but… that’s the precedent that I have set.

This is only Frisoni’s SECOND womenswear season and he is by FAR starting off on the right foot. By setting a precedent of using only luxury fabrics, he already has distanced himself from some of the pack and by creating beautiful garments with these fabrics, he only makes the gap wider.
Maybe it’s the juxtapositions that get me, the fabric that looks as if paint has been splattered on it next to solid, blocks of fabric, the shiny of the strong shouldered cropped jacket with the somberness of the drop crotch, asymetrical pants. It could just be the eyes of the model, and how she has perfected the Tyra Banks smize. How she stares seemingly into ones soul, no matter what her hair is doing.
Whatever it is… it’s clear that Frisoni’s got me!
