Lady Gaga’s FAME fragrance trailer: fetish, darkness, drama

Remember when trailers were a thing for movies? Now books have them, albums have them, fragrances. And the trailer for Lady Gaga’s FAME fragrance has all the explosive drama of a film trailer coupled with the glossy, coordinated visuals of a film clip. We’d already featured, with interest, the vastly different marketing tactic put forth by the “FORMULATION” clip released for the fragrance (follow the…

Lady Gaga covers the September issue

It’s the September issue, and the 120 year anniversary issue – and rather than go for a fashion model Vogue US have deemed Lady Gaga of enough fashion significance to have her on the cover.

Zana Bayne plays to social taboos, launches new season

It wasn’t the gallery’s air-con that had people piling outside of Chelsea’s CATM gallery in ninety-degree New York last week. There was no air-con. Instead, Zana Bayne’s leather harnesses attracted quite the crowd. Robed aptly for the event in their obscure labels, black ensembles and heavy Rei Kawakubo influences, the 50 strong crowd packed in to the tiny (and temperately tropical) gallery to support the…

Sorapol’s cartoon fairytale couture

These out-there outfits are the outfits fairytales dream about. Meanwhile most of us in waking life wouldn’t dream about wearing some of these pieces down the street; but even the most creatively outlandish are still a marvel to look at. Others – like a vibrant blue tail-hemmed dress or this soft, pink, fringed number – have the head-turning capacity of something theatrical, without competing with…
