Marc Jacobs ended his tenure at Louis Vuitton with a brilliant show at Paris Fashion Week showcasing the 2014 spring collection. Marc Jacobs had been the creative director at Louis Vuitton for nearly two decades. A new creative director for Louis Vuitton has not been named, Marc Jacobs will be free to focus on his own line.
With her family tree including parents that founded Agent Provocateur, a grandfather that managed the Sex Pistols and a grandmother who is none other than Vivienne Westwood, 16 year old Cora Corre was clearly destined for greatness! Making her modeling debut in this months LOVE magazine (on sale today), Cora is the face of Marc Jacobs’ new beauty range, and we’re sure that’s not going to be the last we see of her…keep your eyes pealed at LFW in September!
Somewhere’s Elle Fanning may well be the next hottest thing this season following the stunningly beautiful Natalie Portman for her Oscar glory and her recent Miss Dior Cherie TV ad …
However, are we forgetting the person who started all…?
Born to be in the film industry, interned at CHANEL at the age of fifteen, screen-writer, film-director, actress, producer all-in-one, no one is more chic this season than Sofia Coppola.
Her vision is transformed in a poetic way through films and pictures, which also vividly reflects her very own fashion style – chic, cool but always effortless.
There really is no such thing as “too much” is there? Well at least not as far myself and Anna Dello Russo think (yup we are super close friends). Just check her out wearing hats designed by London milliner and BLOW Presents designer Piers Atkinson during the SS11 shows.
The Japanese Vogue fashion director was spotted wearing Piers’ watermelon hat at the Marc Jacobs show in NYC and wearing his Cherry hat at the Alberta Ferreti show in Milan.
What do we think, good enough to eat?
Last Wednesday, the BLOW Presents team ran wild in the streets of London. We started in REISS, where they had amazing gin lemonade cocktails, and then headed to Show Studio to check out In Wolves Clothing, Re-Imagining the Doll.
The exhibition featured work by Michael Baumgarten, Barbie, Marina Bychkova, Nancy Fouts, Emma Gibson, Nick Knight, Laurie Simmons & Peter Jensen, Lone Siggurdson, Viktor & Rolf, and Andrew Yang. Downstairs was a screening of video art and fashion films by Maria Cristina Carbonell, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Desiree Holman, and Lauren Kelly.
There were miniature Viktor & Rolf mannequins, finger puppets in designed in the shape of the fashion greats like Karl Lagerfeld, Grace Coddington, and Alber Elbaz.
From Show Studio we headed to Maison Martin Margiela where new band Personal Space Invaders (think the XX + Joy Division + Black Keys) played a private set.
From Margiela, we walked down to Marc Jacobs where the photos got a little bit more high quality. Check out the images below, they were part of a pop-up photo booth that mimicked the new men’s fragrance campaign!
Needless to say this was our last stop!
