RIDING IN ON A WHITE HORSE
At his New York fashion week party, Marc Jacobs will be celebrating the launch of Gloss, a collection of Chris von Wangenheim's images. The book is published by Rizzoli.
Marc Jacobs' DRESS TO KILL CODE, as described in the invite to his upcoming New York fashion week party, could appropriately read like captioning for von Wangenheim's fashion photos. Von Wangenheim's images capture the shiny, provactively glam fashion of 1970's. He was a contemporary of Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton.
"SEQUINS, SKY HIGH STILETTOS, MIRRORED AVIATORS, METAL MESH, COWL NECKLINE HALTERS, GLOSS-Y SKIN."
We hear you, Marc. Now, where's our invite?
From Dazeddigital.com, here's a closer look at some of Chris von Wangenheim's images:
Coming soon to London: Louis Vuitton’s Series 3 Exhibit
Don’t get us started on the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit at the V&A. How many times have we been? For good measure, we’re getting another dose of the McQueen exhibit tonight at midnight. High fashion and drinks always make for the best Friday nights. Too bad Savage Beauty ends soon.
Luckily for us, London has a number of fashion exhibits on the horizon. Yohji Yamamoto has an exhibit at Live Archives. The Saatchi Gallery will be showing Chanel in October. Also, just announced is Louis Vuitton. The Vuitton exhibit will be located near Somerset House, once home to London Fashion Week.
Set in a former office block neighbouring Somerset House, this ‘Instagram-friendly’ installation will span three floors and 13 rooms, giving a glimpse into the work behind Vuitton’s AW15 collection. Video footage from the show will be projected onto life-sized screens, emulating the view from the front row. The exhibition will conclude with a gallery of the house’s AW15 campaign which was shot by Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber. There’ll even be free posters and stickers for attendees.
