Chanel Set SS12
Yes. That is Florence Welch singing “What The Water Gave Me” in a half shell. (No-one ever claimed Karl Lagerfeld was a minimalist).

Playing with a palette that mimicked a sea-soaked set of pastels, Prospero…I mean Lagerfeld…opened Chanel Spring/Summer 2012 with the dark-haired beauty trifecta of Saskia de Brauw, Freja Beha Erichsen and Aymeline Valade.

This season, Uncle Karl was inspired by pieces that have been shaped at the bottom of the ocean by natural processes, taking millions of years to form. There were also about a million (or eighty) looks, combining new fabrics with pearls, lightness, and the lexicon of Chanel heritage. Mille-feuille and tweed for all the mermaids of the world!

Six decades in this business and he is still at the top. View Post

iD Covers Lady Gaga, Kate Moss and Naomi CampbellAfter the blow-up we all heard about previously, they finally released their tri-cover!

In the words of i-D:

With more names than you can shake a bag of monkeys at, we have brains, beauty and the downright gorgeous, back-to-back-to-back in our non-stop birthday festivities. From rapstars to trapstars, supers to trannies, we conducted a 3 week celebratory photoshoot at Somerset House collaborating with Nick Knight to document the turn of the decade. From cover to cover, the portraits will run throughout the THEN Pre-Fall issue. Almost 200 people took part in the breathtaking project, including The XX, Phoebe Philo, Sir Paul Smith, Florence Welch, Vivienne Westwood, Lara Stone, Pink and Gareth Pugh. Shot entirely in black and white this will be a collectors issue of the future and an important marker in time – made even more spectacular with our three amazing cover stars; Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lady Gaga.

To be honest, I’m not feeling the new logo but I am beyond excited to paw through the insides.
