Armani Exchange On The High Line

The High Line Park is a convincing project. Whether that’s because of Diane von Furstenberg being so into it or simply because it’s popular, the High Line becomes a commercially powerful attraction.

Armani already sensed the potential and didn’t miss the opportunity to make its new Armani Exchange ad panel a significant part of the High Line landscape. Could that be interpreted as a green light for DVF’s High Line Park? Or it’s just one of those seize the ad-moment things? (via)

Dare To Wear Lace Up Bike Shorts?

If Lindsay Lohan was truly the fashion visionary she pretends to be, this new shiny leggings-thing would have had the 6126 label all over it!

But no, these bike shorts with leggings laces wrapping down the leg was imagined and made by Anzevino and Florence. (you have to check them out, they have an adorably playful way to work fabrics!) They could very well be the next big thing in leggings wear. Or not. It’s up to you! Personally, I’d see the shorts even shorter and the laces coming straight from the hip down. It would make more aesthetic sense to me. What say you? (via)

Carmen Kass For Michael Kors Ad Campaign Fall Winter 2009 2010

Carmen Kass and paparazzi photographs is a recurrent theme chez Michael Kors. There goes Carmen alongside Noah Mills as the power couple acclaimed by the crowd and snapped by gossip photographers for the Fall-Winter 2009/2010 campaign.

Entering and leaving a New York Broadway Theater is a subject close to Michael Kors’ heart for he’s been a Broadway Theater fervent since he was five. The campaign has something disturbing, despite its contemporary inspiration (and despite Carmen Kass).

The social act of being a celeb hunted by fans and paps implies a certain shallowness that cannot be dissimulated even if the celeb in cause attends the theater. The media has more power on people’s imagination than any form of classic culture. Is this the fallen art? (via)

Louis Vuitton Ft Madonna Fall Winter 2009 2010 Ad Campaign Revealed

Even if there was no official confirmation from the house of Vuitton that the first leaked picture is really part of the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2009/2010 Ad Campaign, the rest of the pictures are now available and making the rounds of the Internet.

Madonna looking younger and more plasticized than ever with a Photoshop overload that could make any decent desktop publisher blush with shame at the thought of submitting such an image to the public eye. (the story continues with more images right after the jump!)

Jessica Stam, Elettra Rossellini, Mischa Barton Charity Water

Beauty and charity always made a power couple! Jessica Stam and Elettra Rossellini teamed up with Scott Harrison, the Charity: Water founder to raise awareness (thus more funds) for the Charity: Water project.

The project was already associated with Saks Fifth Avenue (since when they joined forces, $500,000 were already raised) in funding fresh water wells in developing nations. Also, joining the charity task force with Jessica and Elettra is actress-turned-model-turned-designer Mischa Barton who can’t keep her distance when models involved. (who knows, maybe someone takes her for a model also!) All pretexts excused for it’s charity: water! (via)

Sasha Pivovarova Chanel Moscow Fashion Show Drawings

It seems the new breed of models is a highly talented one! Not long ago, Coco Rocha premiered her doodles, now it’s Sasha Pivovarova’s turn to impress us with her graphic talents!

She was just featured on the Chanel website with a drawing inspired by “fairytale characters coming to life in one of the main theaters of Moscow”. Given that she was born in Moscow, the unfolding of a Chanel show in her native city made Sasha dream and draw. (I never suspected the Russians fairytales involved extraterrestrial beings!)

Emma Watson Elle UK August 2009 Vs Times Magazine

And to think that the next Harry Potter is far from being ready for the big screen! Emma Watson has two more covers for the newsstands!

Elle UK August 2009 brings out the fierce in Emma, making her look strikingly similar to the Twilight darling, Kristen Stewart. As for The Times Magazine pictures, she may be keeping the strong eyeliner makeup, but the black and white photography brings something special to Emma’s pictures. (the story continues with more images right after the jump!)

Too Snob To Buy Cheap?

I’m one to think as the British elegantly put it “too poor to buy cheap” that quality is important. But branding and quality are not supposed to come together as one in an effort to spend more just to buy the label.

A $1,600 Prada hat is the perfect example of how to spend all your money (and more) for a fashionable pretext that can really undermine your credibility: Anne Christensen is a well respected women fashion director for NY Times T Magazine. Why she bought a $1,600 Prada hat?

I have fair skin, I work in fashion and I tend to hang on to things for a very long time. That is how I can justify (although I know it seems nearly impossible) the price of this Prada hat. But hear me out. Not only will this hat keep the sun off my face, but also I can wear it at the beach or in the city — and, well, I need a replacement for the Kangol cap I have now worn for about eight years. And for those of you who would suggest that I buy myself a $19.99 glue gun and make my own Prada hat, believe me, I would if I could! For now I’ll take the ready-made version and think of the money it might save me on dermatologist bills down the road.

Wait, what? (via)
