Fur Now

01/10/2014, Ad Campaigns, Fashion and Style, Fur

As many of you already know, I’m a HUGE fan of fur. One of my favorite (and earliest) fur items is a classic, brown beaver fur coat I purchased from a vintage store many, many years ago. Most fur lovers start this way — they begin their love for fur from a fabulous hand-me-down fur coat or a jacket from a family member or they purchase something equally chic from a second-hand store. Fast forward many years later, I must admit I’ve moved on to the way I wear my fur. I try to buy one or two strong fur coats each year. Some of you probably remember this white mink fur coat I bought from Fendi last year. My most recent purchase, as in last month, was a gorgeous, multi-color paneled coat from 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Fur now looks much different than what “fur” used to be. It’s no longer the classic, oversized brown coat that grandmothers used to wear to protect themselves from subzero temperatures. We live in a different generation that celebrates individual and unique personal style and this demands new fur silhouettes and shapes featuring strong, eye-catching colors, textures and different combinations.

Also, fur is now being used in countless different ways. You’ll find fur used in cute accessories like scarves, bow ties and camera straps (like my collaboration with Adrienne Landau), keychains (think Fendi Monster and Fendi Karlito key charms) and sunglasses to leather goods such as wallets, pouches and handbags.

Here are several images from the International Fur Federation’s “Fur Now” campaign to modernize the image of fur and to reach a new, youthful demographic (that’s you… and me! *wink*). They flew me to Paris this summer to see the shoot and I’ll share behind-the-scenes photos on a separate blog post.

Made For Walking

19/09/2013, Accessories, Ad Campaigns, Fashion and Style, Stuart Weitzman

The legendary and iconic Kate Moss is the star of Stuart Weitzman’s fall 2013 campaign dubbed “Made For Walking”. I love how Kate was styled in her usual self — the hair, the big, chubby coat (so Kate Moss), the pea coat and the turtleneck in conjuction with selection of Stuart’s boots. So effortless…

LET THE PARODIES BEGIN!!!!

29/08/2011, Ad Campaigns, Fall Winter 2011, Fashion and Style, Lanvin

Dance like the rent is due tomorrow ladies! How spectacular is the fall/winter 2011 Lanvin ad campaign video? Raquel Zimmermann and Karen Elson looks soo chic and badass! I also love Alber’s cameo towards the end. A number of fall ad campaign videos are being released lately but the Lanvin one is the best. I love the element of dance, fun and goofiness and cheekiness while the girls (and guys) look incredibly flawless.

The first thing that came to mind when I saw that video was the word ‘parody’. Look at what I found on YouTube.

The campaign is desperately begging to be parodied. Go on… go grab your best friend, put your best Lanvin on and dance away. I’m gonna try to do this soon. Mark my words.

Prada Fall Winter 2011 Campaign Video

Have you seen Prada’s fall/winter 2011 ad campaign video? The colors and textures are stunning, especially those massive sequined pieces. Remind me to pick up one of those hats the next time I go to the store. I went to the flagship in via Montenapoleone back in June but sadly, they don’t have the larger sizes yet. I’m excited for autumn to arrive!
