GUINEVERE VAN SEENUS ON NOT LOOKING LIKE A TYPICAL MODEL

In her interview, Guinevere talks about not having the typical measurements of a fashion model.”[It’s] a reality check; I don’t walk through the world with people assuming that I’m a model, especially because the type of work that I do isn’t in people’s faces. I’ve had many times where I walk on set and people tell me where I can set up my makeup, or assume that I’m the journalist, the stylist, the hairdresser, the photographer… I get [mistaken for] almost everyone except the model.”

Erdem x H&M is the Next Huge Fashion Collaboration

Fashion

The next huge collaboration in the fashion world is between London-based designer Erdemand the streetwear brand H&M. The designer who dresses up many celebrities such as Alexa Chung, Kate Middleton, Keira Knightley and Claire Foy is the next one in a row to design for the Swedish brand. Erdem Moralioglu founded his eponymous brand in 2005, and since then he’s been leaving people breathless with his extraordinary talent. With this collaboration, the red carpet dresses that we are all dreaming about, are going to be one step closer to everyone.

“I am so happy to collaborate with H&M and to explore my work on a whole new scale, including a menswear collection which I have never done before. It’s also such a thrill to work with Baz Luhrmann, one of the most important storytellers of our time.”- Moralioglu expressed his satisfaction in a press release.

The famous director Baz Luhman is going to create a short movie to promote the collection. Luhman is the face behind many iconic films such as “The Great Gatsby”, and “Moulin Rouge”. Together with the announcement, the Swedish brand released a short teaser, directed by the great Baz, giving us a small hint of what we should expect.

“For me, fashion is always about more than just clothing, it is a form of expression – a standalone art form. I am excited to be collaborating with Erdem and H&M to reveal the story of this unique collection.”- says Luhman.

From what we could see in the teaser, the collection will feature Erdem’s recognizable feminine vibe. The modern and romantic silhouettes will probably be present again, together with the floral print. Now we can all put our hands on Erdem’s show-stopping designs for affordable prices. This will be the first time for the designer to introduce menswear. The men’s designs are expected to be as contemporary as the women’s. In the video, you could see a stylish man’s silk pajama floral suit.

“The collection reinterprets some of the codes that have defined my work over the past decade. It’s also inspired by much of my youth, from the English films, 90’s TV shows and music videos I grew up watching to memories of the style that defined members of my family. Taking from these inspirations I imagined a group of characters and friends off to the English countryside for the weekend. There’s a real play in the collection between something decidedly dressed-up and equally effortless”- says Moralioglu.

Ann-Sofie Johansson, the creative advisor of H&M will also be joining the dynamic duo. Ann-Sophie is excited to work with the two amazingly talented geniuses. She is a huge supporter of Erdem’s work and is captivated by his whimsical and rich designs.

“From the moment we started talking with Erdem about the collaboration, I was captured by his vision. For ERDEM x H&M he has created an enchanting world full of beauty, delicacy and rich details. These are special pieces you will want to wear forever. He’s a perfectionist and challenging at the same time. He knows exactly what he wants: The lace should look like this!”- says Ann-Sofie Johansson.

Erdem X H&M is the Next Huge Fashion Collaboration

The Erdem x H&M line will be available starting from November 2. It will launch in 66 countries and will be available online. Until then, we can only enjoy the short teaser video and fantasize about all of the amazing pieces that we will get to buy. H&M is one of the rare brands that introduces high-end collaborations with luxury clothing brands such as Kenzo, Versace, Balmain, Rei Kawakubo, Stella McCartney, Jimmy Choo and more. With these efforts, the Swedish brand makes a huge difference for everyone out there that can’t afford to buy expensive clothing. The collections are always very affordable and they sell in a record time.

“Seriously, though, I’ve seen it as something which is the opposite of what you’d associate with fast-fashion. I want it to be pieces you’ll be wearing in 10 years time, as women do with my own clothes.”- says Erdem for Vogue.

In her interview, Sophie opens up about working in Los Angeles as a British actress. “I have a lot of friends who were brought up in the UK like me [who] are working in LA as actors. When I go over, I’m giving them s–t and being sarcastic. They’re like, ‘Thank god.’ They’re stuck in this place where everyone is so far up your a–e. It’s a business town, it’s understandable. But sometimes you just need someone to tell you that you’re not a f—ing superstar.”

Dolce & Gabbana: The Latest Brand to Protest with Expensive Tees

Fashion

Balenciaga-Soft-Le-Dix-Tote-Bag

Never ones to brush anything under the rug, the designers behind Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana are playing into the cries of their critics, urging them to boycott the company. In the new protest mode of choice in the fashion industry, Dolce & Gabbana is selling expensive t-shirts that read #BOYCOTT DOLCE & GABBANA.

The $245 shirts are currently available on Dolce & Gabbana’s website, alongside a short film of Italian protesters wearing the shirts during a demonstration against the company. The company’s founders and creative directors, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, are among the protesters depicted in the video.

The shirts come on the heels of Instagram posts from Gabbana in support of First Lady Melania Trump. Last month, in particular, Gabbana took to Instagram to highlight Trump’s Dolce & Gabbana outfits during her recent overseas trip, which caused no shortage of controversy amongst Instagram users. In one of his posts, Gabbana called out “haters,” urging them to boycott the brand – by buying a t-shirt, in what appears to be fashion’s latest attempt to profit from the state of the Trump presidency.

(If you are unsure how eager people are to profit from the political status of the U.S., in particular, consider how many people have rushed to trademark offices across the world to register "Covfefe"in order to have a monopoly over the Trump-tweeted-word).

D&G’s boycott tees may be a new product for the Italian mega-brand but they are just the latest political/activism-leaning wares to join a whole slew of other products in the tokenism that surrounds fashion’s other favorite causes, including feminism, human rights, unity, and the general message of protest/resistance. All of these causes have been given the fashion treatment (aka embodied on expensive garments - such as $710 Dior "We Should All Be Feminists" tees and $90 "Protest" tanks tops from Opening Ceremony - and sold) in recent seasons.

This movement in general – whether intentionally opportunistic or not – is questionable for a number of reasons, including but certainly not limited to the fact that true protest or “action” does not consist of buying a designer sweatshirt and calling it a day, despite what Opening Ceremony, Christian Dior, and co., would like you to believe.

The funny thing surrounding the push for politically-motivated garments and accessories is that many brands - while initially aiming to profit from the products - do not stand to earn much from them at all, as public cries of opportunism and poor taste have forced many brands to change their stance. Both Dior and Opening Ceremony, for instance, have gone back on their initial messaging in connection with their wares, announcing - after the fact - that they will donate the proceeds of such sales to charity.
