NEW YORK, NY August 13, 2014

The 2014–15 International Woolmark Prize (IWP) for the U.S. winners were named recently for both menswear and womenswear at Milk Studios in New York City. Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School(recently awarded the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize) and Marcia Patmos of M.Patmos will represent the U.S. in the IWP final, for which the winner will receive a $94,000 scholarship and the opportunity to have his or her collection stocked in the most prestigious fashion retail stores around the world. 

Each entry for the prize used Merino wool to create a single look. Chow and Osborne were appreciative of the versatility they gained from working with the materials. “Working with wool and all of its natural benefits has been instrumental in developing the trans-seasonality and versatility of our own collection,”they said of the honor. “And it’s going to really help jumpstart our knitwear business.”

A judging panel comprised of Alexander Wang, Ariel Foxman, Colleen Sherin, David Granger, Eric Jennings, Malcolm Carfrae, Michelle Lee, Stefano Tonchi, and Steven Kolb selected the winners from a group of five finalists for each category.

Other finalists included Jonathan Simkhai, Nonoo, Rosie Assoulin, andWhit for womenswear and Antonio Azzuolo, Ovadia & Sons, Timo Weiland, and Todd Snyder for the first menswear award.

Cover-2

 

NEW YORK, NY August 13, 2014

For the FENDI fall/winter 2014-15 campaign, the “sixth Fendi child,” aka Karl Lagerfeld, took his turn wielding the camera. Lagerfeld, who is creative director of FENDI (in addition to Chanel and his own eponymous label), shot the campaign with a contemporary perspective while alluding to the fashion house’s history and the wonder of the Eternal City.

For its setting, Lagerfeld chose Palazzo della Civiltà, one of the more modern structures in Rome and FENDI’s future headquarters. The building is graphic and striking, an iconic choice.

The campaign features Nadja Bender and Ashleigh Good, who, in their clean, dark ensembles, tower in front of a perfect blue sky. The handbags that rest alongside the models dominate the image equally. The images present the brand’s signature Peekaboo, the 2Jours, and the 3Jours, in addition to the new By the Way.

The full campaign will appear worldwide in August 2014.

NEW YORK, NY July 31, 2014

Harper’s Bazaar is bringing their A-game for September with a series of covers featuring iconic women, namely Lady Gaga (in Chanel), Penelope Cruz (in Dior), and Linda Evangelista (in Comme des Garcons), fronting the special issue. In what’s being billed as global fashion director Carine Roitfeld‘s biggest project yet, they’ve nabbed 19 icons in all and the list is impressive. Cindy Crawford, Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, Claudia Schiffer, Mariacarla Boscono, Stephanie Seymour, Isabeli Fontana, Laetitia Casta, Monica Bulucci, Gigi Hadid, Brooke Shields, Eva Herzogiva, Stacy Martin, Lauren Hutton, and Iman were shot for a portfolio that will appear in the September issue of 30 editions of the magazine. The epic project started in March with creative direction by Stephen Gan and shot by Sebastian Faena in New York, London, and Madrid. Inside the issue, Karl Lagerfeld interviews Gaga where they talk about her pup, Asia, and the love of his life, Choupette. Mr. Lagerfeld asks Gaga if the two most famous animals in the world should meet and if Asia has her own personal maid, like Choupette. “They most certainly must meet!” The Lady tells him. “Asia is very sweet and calm. She would be very gentle with Choupette. She does not have a personal maid yet, but I adore making her little presents and cooking her homemade puppy food.” There you have it. The new issue of Harper’s hits stands on August 19th.
