T By Alexander Wang’s Spring 2013 ‘Bon Qui Qui’ Or The Over Use Of Stereotypes

30 January 2013, 14.21 | Posted in Fashion, advertisement | 6 comments »

Alexander Wang launches his T by Alexander Wang Spring 2013 ad featuring Anjelah Johnson as Bon Qui Qui, a stereotype of the city female that I for one have seen a little too much of. The irony is that Bon Qui Qui is often the muse for many trends that have now gone mainstream and are viewed as praiseworthy from hair extensions to nail art, athletic wear, color streaks to name a few. High-end fashion loves to make fun of the world’s Bon Qui Qui, but those of us with eyes and ears on the streets know that in many ways she’s a trendsetter. As much I’ve liked Wang this one makes me pause. (The A$ap Rocky cameo was cute though).

Following on from a successful AW12 collaboration with internationally renowned cult label P.A.M (Perks and Mini) which sees the Roccia Lifted Boot in three luxurious autumnal colourways and the Bonito Glitter Wings Desert Boot in black, gold and silver allover glitter we bring you an exclusive preview of Diemme’s first ever committed women’s collection for Spring Summer ’13.

The newly devoted women’s styles immediately seem more visual in terms of colour and design than past men’s styles that have been admired by women yearning for bigger feet. The four new Spring  styles include slip-on sneakers and hunting boots that have been readapted for city use featuring leopard print and pony skin leather. All styles are made at the Calzaturificio Diemme factory in Montebelluna, Italy utilizing 20 years of experience producing for brands including Maison Martin Margiela and Chanel, not to mention cult Japanese brands such as Nonnative and Bedwin & The Heartbreakers.

All elements of the footwear from design to suppliers to production, are committed to making a product of the highest quality and that is certainly evident in this first look.

Ad: Chanel Ft. 16-Year-Old Ondria Hardin Spring 2013

chanel spring 2013 campaign 2 Ad: Chanel Ft. 16 Year Old Ondria Hardin Spring 2013

Chanel just dropped the ad campaign for its Spring 2013 collection, starring 16-year (or 15, no one seems to know) -old American model Ondria Hardin, along with 16-year-old Yumi Lambert and Stella Tennant, who, since we’re counting, is an ancient 42!

Because more pressure and rules around using models under the age of 16 have arisen recently, a good bit of controversy has already swirled around Hardin. She walked her first show in 2011 at age 14 for Marc Jacobs, who at the time chose to ignore CFDA recommendations against using models under 16. Who will win the tug of war around what age young women should be allowed to model remains unclear, but at least for the Chanel images, Hardin looks like she fits right in and is gorgeous at that.

Beside model choices, a closer examination of the ad reveals a smalerl version of the Hoola Hoop bag that was widely featured after the show in September.

All campaign images can be viewed on the next page.

Reebok Classics Spring 2013 Video Look Book

28 December 2012, 00.36 | Posted in Fashion, Sneakers | No comments »

As the proud owner of many pairs of 54-11s (aka Freestyle Hi), I’ve always had a soft spot for the “The Bok” and the brand’s Pump Omni Lite styles. Over the years Reebok has been through various ups and downs, striving to stay relevant but on occasion making the mistake of chasing too many trends. Nonetheless there’s still something very cool and efforless about a classic pair of Reeboks. The latest video look book anchored on youth culture gives a glimpse of how simplicity can be cool and fun. Enjoy!

What a week, no, what another big year for Kate Moss! After we shared the ads of Stuart Weitzman’s latest campaign introducing Kate Moss as the new face for the shoe brand, Versace releases it’s Spring 2013 campaign featuring Moss,  Daria Werbowy and Joan Smalls. This time La Moss and her colleagues appear as sexy gladiator women nicely tanned and surrounded by some half-naked male models that we can still remember from the last Versace menswear show.

Kate Moss will also be featured in  the upcoming Givenchy Spring 2013 campaign, which features Mariacarla Boscono and her baby.

Looks like the Moss era will also continue in 2013!
