FASSBENDER'S SHAME


Directed by Steve McQueen and starring Michael Fassbeder and Carey Mulligan, Shame's provocative theme is making a buzz all over the movie industry. Blessed with good looks, money and a natural talent to allure and pursue every woman he wants Brandon [played by the fearless Fassbender] is a sex addicted men facing his conflicted world fall apart when his sister Sissy [Mulligan] comes to live with him. It's almost rated as an adult movie, based on Fassebender's graphic 'acting', but nevertheless the critics are praising the movie saying it is not about the theme but the psychological dept and drama of the character. Also blessed with good looks, genuine talent and a magnetic screen presence Fassbender has won the Venice Film Festival as best actor for his role so we can expect the German-Irish gentleman will rock the Oscar's in 2012. Watch the amazing Shame trailer now:

JARED LETO JUST DIFFERENT FOR BOSS


After the Jonathan Rhys Meyers iconic ads, Jared Leto is the new face of Boss ad campaign called Hugo Just Different. Lets say it is not the boldest nor the most innovative men's fragrance ad cause we've seen the combination of night scenes + buildings + men in suits in at least 5 campaigns with actors [Henry Cavill for Dunhill, Gaspard Ulliel for Chanel, Jude Law for Dior, James Franco for Gucci...] but it's definitely just different to see the pretty faced 40 year old actor/musician/model all cleaned up, no mascara, no leather straps and no 30 Seconds to Mars entourage. Lets just say he looks so much better wearing a very slim basic Boss suit.

FREITAG MUSEUM BAGS






It's not available any longer but it feels great to share and remember the amazing Freitag arty bags made exclusively for the museums listed [feature banners from Tate Modern in London, Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Palazzo Grassi in Venice and MoCA Los Angeles] with exclusive recycled posters for an exclusive stylish clientele. But the idea of creating something new with used materials should not be exclusive to Swiss bag brand Freitag so my fellow designers of the world lets create recycled products!

KENZO'S NEW COLLECTION AND ANIMATION

I am loving this new animation for the brand new Kenzo collection called Kenzonique. With animation by Rob Ward and Suzanne Deakin, music by Rob Coudert, this video is vibrant and happy as the spirit of Kenzo must be!



Everybody knows the buzz about Antonio Marras leaving Kenzo for a possible Dior position. So LVMH has hired creative duo Humberto Leon and Carol Lim to add a more new generation appeal for the brand as we can see in the catwalk of their new Printemps-Ete 2012 collection. I do like the bright colors, straw hats and nylon sports inspired looks. But I do miss the bolder prints Antonio Marras used to add cause prints and boldness are the basis of a true Kenzo style.

BURBERRY PRORSUM WOMENSWEAR SPRING SUMMER 2012

My fav front row looks: Rosie, Douglas, Gemma, George, Sienna e Lilly



Oh Christopher Bailey did it again! I loved Burberry's collection presented at a huge catwalk on September 19th at the shadows of Prince Albert's Memorial, Kensington Gardens! The show it self was a huge social happening due to the absurd celebrity amount per meter: Kanye West, Anna Wintour, Ben Kinsley, Mario Testino, Sienna Miller, Gemma Arterton plus the entire gallery of gorgeous Burberry faces, George Craig, Douglas Booth, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Lily Donaldson et al. The collection had everything we expect form Burberry, trench coats, parkas, military looks, an ochre to green palette plus the addition of unexpected gorgeous stripes, cute raffia bonnets with a fluffy thing on top and big bold African inspired prints with an undeniable 70's feel to the looks.

THE MILL AND THE CROSS





Check out the visually stunning trailer of Lech Majewski's The Mill and the Cross, featuring an unique view of the works of Pieter Bruegel's masterpiece 'Way to Calvary'. Bruegel the Elder was a Flemish Renaissance painter who was famous for capture tiny details in large landscapes and peasant scenes full of moral critic and subtle content such as 'The Land of Cockaigne', 'The Blind Leading the Blind' and my favourite 'A Detail of Children's Games'. Cannot wait to see it's beautiful photography and the return of talented Rutger Hauer as Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Michael York as his patron, and the always enigmatic and amazing Charlotte Rampling as the inspiration for his Virgin Mary!

Stunning trailer!

THE BOY


Douglas Booth as a beautiful mirror image of Boy George


Culture Club and Culture Club for BBC's Worried About the Boy


Burberry model Douglas Booth looking stunning as Boy George

I am obsessed by Boy George since forever. I've heard kids making fun of him, calling him bad names and I was the first to defend him saying he was stylish, and I was only 5 years old! So many years later I was on my usual vacation in London last June when I met the most beautiful boy ever at the British Museum. Turns out the Botticelliesque beauty was the up and coming British actor and Burberry model Douglas Booth. Believe me, he is perfection, very tall, blond hair, green eyes, the most beautiful full lips and at the tender age of 19, he's got that London boy vibe that is so trendy now [way more stylish than Rob Patzz] so basically a future Hollywood star. I found out he did this really cool BBC movie called 'Worried About The Boy' about the teenage years of no one less that my childhood idol Boy George! The movie is quite brilliant, it captures with sensibility the fragile heart of a boy who was to become an unique pop legend. Douglas Booth [who was only 17 when the movie was produced] delivers a touching performance beyond all the 80's stereotype bringing a real flash and blood and tears Boy George and Oh Holy Gautier, one has got to be a great actor to overcome the tons of red lipstick, eyeshadows and glitter and still looks absolutely desirable to boys and girls as Boy George was. 'Worried About the Boy' also starts Richard Madden [Game of Thrones] as Boy's first boyfriend, Matthew Horne as Jon Moss and Marc Warren as Steve Strange plus Boy George was the consultant for this project, so it is definitely a must see.

Oh Douglas is a vision of paradise
