Rick Owens_Image of the day #23

I love the work of Rick Owens. Rick’s clothing lines, fashion shows and furniture collections are always bold statements, very pure and have a provocative nature. So does his shops, temples of Owens pure and black philosophy. They all have one eye catcher in common: in every shop you have a life size wax version of Rick Owens. In Paris it’s standing on the counter desk and nearly every hardcore fan takes a picture with their idol, standing on the desk. But in Owens Milan store Rick’s wax figure is not visible in the store. You have to go into one of the two fitting rooms to see them. Did I already tell you Owens has a fine sense of humor and certainly a huge dose of self relativity? You have to see the image to believe the position he’s in… Besides the particular fitting room seats, the Rick Owens store is, as always, very minimal designed, and the entire shop is pure white in a concrete bunker. No window displays, the windows are closed with a white concrete …

POP by Stella McCartney

A new concept for a new upcoming target group: POP by Stella McCartney is the scent for the new generation of Stella girls; independent but strengthened by their togetherness. It is an adventure, a spirit. It is about capturing the moment when you find yourself and come into your own. The story continues in the campaign film shot by Melina Matsoukas. Indie pop musician Grimes, Lola Leon (the daughter of Madonna), black rights activist and Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg and animal rights focused model Kenya Kinski-Jones trail blaze on a journey of discovery in the California dessert. POP by Stella McCartney is for a new group of girl power with a ‘let’s do this’ attitude, rooted in authenticity, friendship and individuality. Promoting self-acceptance and positive mutual support, the campaign offers a refreshing alternative to the occasionally divisive atmosphere of body shaming and the unfiltered opinion-sharing that currently exists on social media. According to McCartney, each one arrived on set with her own distinctive beauty signature, from Grimes’s Rainbow Brite dye job and Stenberg’s cloud of curls to Leon’s extended-tip French manicure …

I’ve always loved iconic street photographer Bill Cunningham, who captured candid historical records of New Yorkers’ changing sense of fashion for nearly 40 years.  Bill worked for the New York Times and the legend died Saturday, June 25 at age 87. “He was using his camera to document not just how people dressed, but who they were.” said Richard press, director of “Bill Cunningham New York” . If you want to know what the second half of the 20th century looked like fashion wise, turn to Bill Cunningham’s photographs. It’s been said that even Vogue Queen Anna Wintour hoped to be snapped by Cunningham because once Bill snapped a photo of you, it was a huge honor. (And you knew you’d become part of his legendary story.) He’ll be missed. Later! Kate          

Kanye West Famous music video. Image of the day #19

Normally I don’t do posts about celebs, but this image had to make it to my ‘Image of the day’ shortlist. When I first saw this hilarious still from Kanye West’s latest video ‘Famous’ I couldn’t believe my eyes. What was he thinking and God knows why he pulled this off? Kanye debuted this video with a special viewing party the 24th of June and appeared to invite potential lawsuits over it 24 hours later. Kanye, controversial but al least remarkable when it comes to branding and marketing,  know’s how to shock and loves it. This time he created a video of several wax re-creations of celebrities including Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown and his own wife Kim Kardashian, laying naked in bed beside him. From Swift we know he hates her guts and West uses every opportunity to piss her off (even more). “It’s not in support or anti any of …”[the people in the video] West explains to Vanity Fair, “it’s a comment on fame.” Kanye ‘shelled out $750,000’ just for the nude wax figures in the Famous video and must …
