SS13 Campaign: Versace Does Post Apocalyptic Glamour

Versace-SS13-ad-1So according to the Mayans the world was suppose to end today, I forgot all about it, but Versace obviously decided to do their own version of what an apocalypse would look like, and of course it would be glamorous and filled with half-naked gladiators.

For the spring/summer 2013 campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus, Versace has brought together three iconic models Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Joan Smalls and each one looks absolutely hot – especially Kate who is being flanked by three very hunky gladiators, Edward Wilding, Kacey Carring and Veit Couturier.

Of the campaign, Donatella Versace said:

“To have three glamorous and iconic women like Kate, Daria and Joan in one campaign is not an easy feat. Mert and Marcus really outdid themselves, each image is composed like a work of art.”

This is one steamy campaign that I am sure for some will be a little too fake, or photoshopped, but come what do you expect from Versace – these images are so on brand for me and I love them – they are OTT, striking, and so, so sexy.

What do you think of Versace’s spring/summer 2013 campaign?

Press Preview: Warehouse – Spring/Summer 2013

SS13_Warehouse_3I know I haven't been doing reviews of every press day, I will share some of my favourite pieces in a round-up blog, but I just had to show you what Warehouse have coming for spring/summer 2013 as I was blown away.

First up the location, the Warehouse press team always seem to get the venue so right, last season was an amazing gallery where they put on an exhibition, and this time round they went for the rooftop bar of the new, not even opened, ME London hotel. This place is incredible, sharp, crisp white and mirrored interior, a glass canopied rooftop that let's you see straight down into reception, and then there is the amazing view – you can see the everything from the London Eye to Tower Bridge and with it being opposite Somerset House you are so close to that you can nearly see people skating. I reckon this is going to be one hot location for fashion week.

SS13_Warehouse_Me_LondonSS13_Warehouse_5The setting was perfect for Warehouse's opulent and very high-end collection that had a gorgeous mixture of maxi dresses, sixties shifts, jumpsuits, prints, cute jackets, and lots and lots of monochrome and textured pieces.SS13_Warehouse_13SS13_Warehouse_11

My eyes were quickly drawn to all the structured monochrome styles, which had intricate zip detailing, gorgeous silhouettes and textured pieces full of fringing, lace touches, beaded embellishments and studs – there were a lot of pieces that I am going to want to invest in next season.

Video Loving: Spring/Summer 2013 Collections Set To Tchaikovsky’s “Apotheosis”

I love finding amazing things online and this video bringing together twelve collections from spring/summer 2013 set to Tchaikovsky’s “Apotheosis” from Sleeping Beauty by John Jannuzzi is incredible.

Not only is the music amazing, but I just love how perfectly it goes with the collections from the likes of Proenza Schouler, Dior, Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou, Louis Vuitton, Prabal Gurung, Peter Pilotto, and Alexander McQueen.

There is something hypnotic about watching the models twirl around in a kaleidoscope effect, and what a cool way to relive the collections.

Warning this is hypnotic viewing!

A Closer Look: Louis Vuitton – Spring/Summer 2013

I am in the midst of press day season at the moment, and one of my early highlights so far has to be checking out the Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2013 collection in their London showroom. I always love seeing catwalk collections up-close, especially when they are such a big accessories brand like Louis Vuitton as walking through the collection I got to mentally pick out all the handbags I would love to add to my collection.

It seems that spring/summer 2013 is going to be all about the tiny handbag, a step towards elegance and a nod to the retro, which I love, but I am also scared as it means I have to give up on my divine oversized handbags that seem to be able to hold everything.

The Louis Vuitton ready-to-wear explores symmetry and mirrors and has a touch of the 60s about it, I love the chess-board effect, whether it was in black or the custard yellow mixed with white, the clothes really stand out.

I left the press day with an enormous mental wish-list – from the oversized sunglasses to the orange envelope handbag to the super cute sequinned flamingo t-shirt, oh and a Louis Vuitton scarf, or two!!!

What are you loving from the spring/summer 2013 Louis Vuitton collection?
