“Little Black Dress” on a Prairie.

Here are two of the ads for Chanel’s Fall 2009 ad campaign, shot at Creative Director, Karl Lagerfield’s Vermont home. The ads give off Little House on the Prairie and just scream BEAT. This reminds me of a shoot I did with photographer, Charles Trahan II over at MESH., which is available here. Hope to see more really soon. Check it out.

BET Awards…Fashion Do’s.

Last night’s BET Awards were anything but appeasing, yet there were a few fashions that kept me intrigued.

First, there’s my wife and all time favorite female singer, Beyonce Knowles, sporting none other than a Balmain mini-dress. Regardless of what anyone says, I feel that the silhouette is amazing and the color adds just enough of a pop. If you had a body like her’s you’d wanna show it off too. Let’s just be glad she didn’t wear one of Tina’s originals.

Next there’s my boy Drake, with a pretty casual approach. Tip to Ciara, this is how you pull off casual on a Red Carpet. From the cardigan to the ankle boots, I’d def rock this ensemble. [BTW I think he made sitting on a stool rapping look pretty smooth. Hope the ACL heals.]

Innovation At It’s Best.

Moncler Gamme Bleu is a men’s collection of urban garments. For the Spring 2010 collection, Creative Director Thom Browne choreographed this amazing show which is probably the most innovative I’ve seen to date. Along with a great idea came great fashions, and together the two have taken over the fashion world. With this only being the second collection for Moncler Gamme Bleu, they have started off extremely strong and I look forward to seeing what is to come. Check out some of the hot fashions.

Hellfire Club Redux.

John Galliano 1

For his Fall/Winter ’09 Collection, John Galliano drew inspiration from old England, most notably Sir Francis Dashwood and his Hellfire Club, an exclusive club for the British high society during the 16th Century. In his interview, Galliano also states that he was inspired by old paintings, books, and mythology, combining elements of streetwear, sportswear, and melding it into “The Galliano DNA,” somthing the designer says his discerning target audience seeks.

I’m loving Galliano’s collection. Aside from the old English feel, it gives me a Pirates of the Caribbean vibe as well. And ladies, did you peep the shoes?!? yes, heels are coming in higher than ever, but to incorporate such raw materials as plywood, Galliano is taking the shoe game to another plateau.

 For more pics, as well as video of the show, and a backstage interview with John Galliano himself, check out the website here.

Stay Classick!
