Outsiders Fall Winter 2012 campaign

And another gorgeous autumn / winter 2012 campaign with a very special charm. Scott Sternberg actress Amy Adams for Boy. by Band of Outsiders before the Polaroid camera pose and they can really good! Whether in strong pose in a kitchen or around gymnastics on a ranch, the Western charm is not lost and I secretly wish me now on a farm somewhere in the Wild West.

Ukrainian Fashion Week: Skater princesses of thousand and one night in a dressing gown with Keburia

Keburia

My stay in Kiev was unfortunately so short that I could see just three shows of the Ukrainian Fashion Week. The better it is because that I direct the first collection of the label Keburia has completely cut out of the socks. The young designer was convincing with a style unique, unusual cuts and casual combinations.

Instead of high heels, the models strolled in at Keburia slip ons on the catwalk. Skater associations remain because of course not. But the dresses with large cut outs, brocade or striped finely pointed to two very different sources of inspiration. Like princesses from Tausnd and a night – but not in the magnificent apparel – but in a dressing gown appeared to me the strange beautiful combinations. This label I will keep an eye on! Read more »

Sunny’s Column: How free should be fashion production?

How free should be fashion production

She repeatedly popping up, the questions of freedom and art. What is freedom? And what art is all about? Increasingly, they ask: How art can be really free? In today’s world our own freedom is written very large, because we all want to be free, be it in our career choices, clothing choices or our artistic expression. At the same time, everything should run as politically correct and other people trample on your feet is a very bad idea, because it belongs to the bullying, discrimination and the like. But what happens when art discriminated against? Or put another way: How free should be fashion production?

Latest Scandals is an editorial in the October issue of German Vogue, which has been discussed among others by Spiegel Online. On display is a model in homeless look, the – as it is now usual times for a fashion spread of this type is – wearing clothing worth a supermarket shopping, which could feed a whole house for weeks. The gap between the themed social issue of homelessness and the artistic freedom of the fashion production is evident as large as the resulting discussion.

But this editorial is not the only, what is discussed in terms of fashion production and the list of criticisms that have been targeted are relatively long. Models that are too thin, too thick, too young, too provocative or naked; rare animals that have to stop for hours for fashion spreads quietly, and the pollution caused by private flights with a whole crew somewhere comes nowhere existence; serious post with image processing programs that give rise to the unrealistic and unnatural results and the unabashed use of rare leathers or furs, financial and human gap between production and shooting locations.

One criticism of fashion production seems to find himself again and is certainly more or less justified. I even find myself, however, often give me my own position of individual cases against not be so sure. An editorial to me is still fashion art, in which, collectively producing something artistic. Can we, then, art ever limit at all when you consider that among the many recipients a portion of them would certainly have always objected to criticisms of the shown? Mankind should be even a little more tolerant fashion production over?

To mark the occasion this time a lot of text, little pictures and the go-ahead for discussion: How free should be fashion production?
