Versace for H&M – Let the Madness Begin

Versace for H&M

Hitting the shops on November 17th, here is your sneak preview of what is to come for Versace’s upcoming collaboration with H&M.
The looks are very „Versace“, reminiscent of the famous `80s prints, bright, colourful and boy-con. The leather pieces are embellished with a lot of studs. Thanks to Vogue Russia, I can show you some of the pieces. The ad campaign featuring Sasha Pivovarova, Lindsey Wixson and Daphne Groenwald also gives a wonderful insight into the highly anticipated Versace for H&M collection.

Besides Donatella Versace being the first to wear the leather studded dress (for photos click here for the previous post), of course Anna Dello Russo has not to wait until November. She was spotted in the same dress during the beginning of Paris Fashion Week.

Let the madness begin…

Miu Miu Women’s Tales

Miu Miu women's tales

I am completely in love with Miu Miu’s S/S  2011 womenswear collection and the campaign that evokes the spirit of performance and stage.

Models Querelle Jansen, Sasha Pivovarova and Kasia Struss were photographed in London by renowned duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, styled in the manner of barely breathing mannequins, all slicked back hair and crimson mouths.
Far from passive, however, it wouldn’t be Miuccia Prada if there wasn’t a message and this time it is her reflection on a society that is obsessed with celebrity.

Inspired by on-screen costume, flower, flame, snake and star prints are re-invented to suitably stylised effect. It is a study of feminity that is as playfully inventive as it is alluring.

To support this idea, Miu Miu presents the “Miu Miu Women’s Tales”, a series of short movies directed by international female filmmakers that explore their fantasies about the brand.

The first one has been directed by Zoe Cassavetes (Broken English) and is called “The Powder Room”, an enchanting and dramatic short film set in London’s Claridges hotel.
It is a beautiful how Zoe Cassavetes were able to capture the luxury codes of the Miu Miu universe. I especially like her close-ups. To view the movie, click here.

The next directors will be announced soon. Another interesting approach to adverstising and communicating a brand. But as always, Miuccia is leading the way…
