In Gucci's new short movie the leading role players are the Bamboo Shopper and Lady Lock Bag. With gusto they are the lead and you're guaranteed for some tasty looking good movie at least for a minute or some.

For Gucci's latest campaign around the autumn sweethearts of their bag collection transformed the London's Savoy into a movie set
This historic hotel Guccio Gucci (founder) worked early 1900s as a lift-boy and was so violent inspired by the new traveling elite. There, in the elevator, the idea arose to ever launch's his own leather goods label. The rest of the history can guess.

Karl Lagerfeld mini horror movie Fendi’s 2013 Fall/Winter ‘INVITO PERICOLOSO’ 

More and more short movies are directed, created and linked to fashion designers, show/ ready to wear collections. As Cartier took it almost 5 years to launch there advertising campaign as a film directory approach. As Gareth Pugh started to show his collection as first initiator on a big videoscreen. As I've posted earlier about Cartier launched it's advertisement campaign as a movie, Burberry new media design, e. o.

Karl Lagerfeld, multitalented and gifted fashion designer, photographer and now as director for Fendi's 2013 fall collection. Entitled INVITO PERICOLOSO, “Perilous Invitation”, the artsy retro-inspired horror film sees Cara Delevingne alongside Saskia de Brauw – each showcasing the Italian fashion label’s fur-centric Fall/Winter 2013 collection.

I'm a graduated Audio Visual communication designer, was my approach to visualize moving images within sequence in timing related to fashion and to trend forecasting. Starting back in 1995 when I created Audio visual presentations for trend/ forecasting assignments. It's inspiring and motivating to see the development and approaches on very high level in fashion nowadays!

Today as we premiere his first film for Saint Laurent, which focuses on the new Ballerina line, he once again re-contextualises the history of the house and imbues it with a new energy. Against a haunting ‘Trick or Treat’ soundtrack, composed and performed by LA-based Clementine Creevy from Cherry Glazeer, model Lida Fox – who also walked in the AW13 show and is considered one of the "mannequin cabine" from the house Yves Saint Laurent – is captured in motion wearing Slimane’s newly designed classic ballerina shoe.

Ok I have to admit, I was a huge Marilyn Manson fan...during his Antichrist Superstar album, Mechanical Animal and Holywood albums... Though Holywood was already the beginning of the end... After John 5 and later Twiggy left the band, it was definitely over for me.

Brian Warner represent himself as his Alter Ego Marilyn Manson, I really found him stunningly beautiful. Everything besides scary or alienated freak...

When I went to his concerts, different countries.
Wearing high fashion. Versace black stilletto booties, which had a small gold detail at the back of the heel. Matching so well with the gold chain/ necklace top which costed me a shitload, to considering it didn't even had a backside.....

Together with a black pair of Costume National Trousers and leather gloves, just covering my fingers and half my hand. .....Mi overdressed Marilyn Manson 'fan',  surrounded by the most pathetic (no offense) tragic look a likes.

I even bought myself some bloodred contactlenses, because M.M wore 1of these. It was at the same time that Alexander McQueen showed his collection and the catwalk models they all wore bloodred contactlenses... So I had to had these myself (special prescription because I'm short sighted -4)

How fascinating it is now to read the news that Hedi Slimane has chosen Marilyn Manson to be the face for (Yves) Saint Laurent.

A few years ago he and his, by that time fiancee Dita von Teese, were already doing the advertising campaign for Vivienne Westwood.

So I love it; M.M. for YSL, a small part of mi will be a 'fan' again of MM this time from my biggest interest& perspective fashion related... A new approach Fashion / pop icons....

Nina Ricci winter2012/2013

This video made by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin is so beautiful realistic yet so surreal in HD is exquisite to watch.
Sound and music distorted backwards. And by using real time animation. It's done beautifully!
Not to mention what a progressive and modern approach for such a classic, traditional Haute Couture house as Nina Ricci. Well it all started to be progressive already when Oliver Theyksens came as head designer for Nina Ricci.

As a true believer of written notes, to keep my personal information data-preserved. I’m definitely willing but I gave up just solemnly believing and trusting in the digital preservation of information. By every time when they invented the ‘newest’ for years to safe and back-up your information by digital backup devices. Too many times dealt with a crashed digital gadgets like my digital agenda/diary, digital psion, or even worse, my Iphone, after being crashed not only once but twice and still missing an important part between december 2011 and march 2012, including phonenumbers, data of appointments, little important personal notes and so on. I’m a true believer of the written script. So I started to write over every phone number, important dates to remember, appointments or any other information to keep, just with pen and paper. Using my old Rolodex again which has a good place on my desk.  And always carrying my diary- or sketchbook- or notebook with me. 
In my big purse and stuff it in my perception all the neccessities or in other means I carry stuff with me like a pack donkey.

For this moment, I’ve discovered the tinier the notebooks, the more I love it.  Already know(n) for my expensive taste for quality, I prefer the more luxury, exclusive hard covers made of leather, favorite are crocodile or python, not to buy myself any of such, prices are rocket sky high. But the exquisite collection offered by Moleskine makes me very greedy too and it makes me really happy just to get it as a gift or the moment after purchasing a tiny notebook, or the huge big notebook/ diary.

Stationery it is and besides fashion another love. How curious I’ve become to hear the news of the flagship brand of LVMH group LOUIS VUITTON to open a stationery boutique, a space dedicated to writing planned to open in the beginning of December 2012, located at Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Between the famous Flore and Deux Magots. The left bank of the Seine at the corner of 6 Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés, whose famous cafes and booksellers have been a magnet for famous writers for decades.
Word has it that Louis Vuitton, which earlier this year confirmed it would extend its brand into perfume, is also plotting a move into stationery. According to Reuters sources, the French leather goods powerhouse — which already markets some pens, agendas, travel guides and notebooks — plans to upgrade and extend its writing category in paper, pens and stationery upscale. To launch covered alligator pens, paper and colored ink in inkwells Baccarat crystal, It is understood the product initiative is tied to the ambitious forthcoming expansion of its boutique at Saint-Germain-des-Prés,
Celebrating the world of travel and writing through the presence of books and artwork, The brand's first venture into selling stationery has started half october by its temporary literary exhibition entitled L'Ecriture est un Voyage - meaning 'writing is a journey' - and runs until New Year's Eve. Space at 170 Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris.
Louis Vuitton and LVMH have refused to comment. But will send out an official press release later
