Lagerfeld’s vision of the twenties

Part of the joy of a flapper fashion revival is – even if only in your imagination – reliving the golden age of the 1920s. It’s hard to slip on a bias-cut silk gown or a fringed frock that shimmies with every step without also imagining a cigarette holder into your hand, or some vintage Chanel jewels around your neck. In his typical choice of…

Couture and Candice

The black and white photography, the classic poses where the body is curved into S-shapes and soft movements. If this wasn’t a couture shoot from the middle of the 20th century, it could only really be a Karl Lagerfeld production. Largerfeld, in conjunction with stylist Andrew Richardson, offers up on a platter the things we’d expect from a couture editorial: ruffles, tulle, sequins, fur trim,…

Weekend read: Largerfeld & Roitfeld on pornography

Fashion and nudity have long gone hand in hand and, while she was Vogue Paris’ editor, Carine Roitfeld was one of its biggest proponents. So much so that much of the commentary around the new, post-Roitfeld Vogue Paris has revolved around its distinct lack of ‘porno chic’. Carine Roitfeld doesn’t like that point however. In fact, she abhors the term altogether. That’s a point you…

Natasha Poly has our Numero

I could feign that this post has something to do with lingerie as outerwear or claim that killer cheekbones are 2011‘s must-have accessory, but for both I’d be drawing a long bow. Rather Natasha Poly graces Fashionising.com because, having been named as one of Fashionising.com’s favourite models, I’ll always find a space for her. Even if I can’t think of a legitimate excuse.

Patched jeans: denim fashion trend

Here’s a conundrum for you: what does a fashioniser do to keep up with denim trends given that ripped jeans may leave them chilly throughout Autumn 2009 / Fall 2009 and shan’t again be practical until Spring 2010? Simple. Patch them. Or, even simpler, follow the lead of the fashion forwards and invest in a pair of pre-patched jeans.

Lydia Hearst for Playboy France; November 2008

You have to hand it to Playboy France: while its US counterpart continues its slide into the realm of utter tackiness, the French edition keeps coming up with the goods. First there was Karl Largerfeld’s photoshoot for the magazine, one soon followed up by Anouck Lepere’s spread (no pun intended). It was, however, Lily Cole’s nude shoot that proved without a doubt that Playboy France…
