Introducting the Jil Sander 'View Bag' F/W 15/16

Jil Sander`s Fall / Winter 2015 Collection introduces the new iconic “View Bag”.

A new dynamic, smooth shape, defined through an accurate movement’s study. The rhomboidal cut, gives the View bag structural unicity as well as a perfect flow when in motion. Its construction is characterized by chromatic contrasts and stratifications, which allows to see the various elements of the bag perfectly.

The refined design combines classic colours with unexpected tones of vermillion, moka and purple. The View bag is crafted with smooth calf leather, crocodile or python that well adapts to a wide range of sophisticated occasions of use.

What an awesome bag. I love it`s perfect geometrical shape, which is, again, inspired by paper. The grey one is my favourite.

How do you like the View bag?

Vogue Fashion`s Night Out 2015 in Berlin, Vienna & Düsseldorf

Based on an initiative by Vogue, more than 280 boutiques, brand stores and luxury department stores in three cities will open into the night for the VFNO and surprise fashion-fans with premiers, limited editions and special events. Vogue editor in chief Christine Arp and her Team will go on fashion discovery tour in all three cities. 
As every year, the participation partners are commited to a good cause. The revenues from the shopping bag designed by Vogue that can be bought at participating stores go completely to charity. In Berlin to the Berliner Tafel, in Düsseldorf to the Kinderhospiz Regenbogenland and in Vienna to the Licht ins Dunkel society.  

The VFNO is in Berlin for the seventh time: This year, the shopping night takes place on Wednesday, September 9th around the Kurfürstendamm – at Boss, Chanel, Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Wunderkind and others as well as in the luxury department store KaDeWe where the biggest fashion party in Berlin will take place and that opens all four floors for the event for the first time. Special events can also be found at Riani, where one can win personalized woolen ponchos or at the Schwarkopf-Salon Laetitia Coiffeur who offers the perfect Styling for the event.

On Thursday, September 10th, the VFNO will open for the first time in Vienna and take place around the Goldene Quartier, Graben and Kohlmarkt. The designs by young austrian designers can be seen in several runway shows and bought in pop-up stores at the Goldene Quartier, dermatologist and beauty-specialist Dr Timm Golüke presents a new skin cleaning product at Nägele & Strubell and many local boutiques like Modehaus Hämmerle, Juwelier Heldwein and Sportalm are to be discovered. The big designer labels like Alexander McQueen, Emporia Armani, Etro, Jimmy Choo, Prada and Vivienne Westwood also participate in Vienna.

The FNO Düsseldorf starts early; Marlies Möllers Beauty-Parlor offers free styling starting at 2 pm and the Dorotheum Düsseldorf opens the exhibition „Couture et Parure“ at 4 pm. The hotspots of the night in Düsseldorf will be the Königsallee with the stores of Hermés, Karl Lagerfeld, Massimo Dutti and Wolford as well as the Kö-Bogen with the Breuninger department store. The Sansibar takes care of the refreshments, they created the „Fashion-Gourmet-Menue“ especially for the Vogue and the event. The Apropos concept store hosts a highlight will be showing new shoe trends by luxury brands like Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik and Valentino. 

An individualization-special is offered to the customers by VFNO Partners. As in 2014, the brand partners offer specials that make the VFNO 2015 unique – and the trend goes toward personalization. At Diesel one can personalize ones jeans-pants at the „Denim Master Studio“, at Tod's one can design an individual shoe and can personalize bracelets at Thomas Sabo or polo shirts at Lacoste. Falke offers a Special-Edition-pantyhose with Swarovski-crystals. Artfans can enjoy a special offer: The Lumas gallery shows the „Vogue Collection“ with more than 30 pieces by famous photographers and you can win one of the limited photographs in a prize raffle.

Links à la Mode (August 13)

Many of you are still traveling and showing how travel boosts your creative pulse. Another, embarked on a tour of a fashion golden age. However, what most of the IFB bloggers were talking about this week was beauty… whether at home or in the salon. The delight of treating oneself to a high-end salon blow out, pampering your skin and follicles with facial masks and hair color, and everyday beauty tricks like strobing or updating your look with the newest nail color. I just love how this community shares their insight on blogging; from photography and increasing followers to creating a blogging collective. We also had a couple good entertainment reviews. One of the spoof variety and one of the deep-cuts fashion icon variety. I’ll let you decide which is which. And for those of you no longer traveling, but heading back to the office, move straight to the posts on how to liven up your cubicle style.

Roberto Cavalli Ad Campaign F/W 15/16: Ciara`s Kingdom

The story of a world encapsulated in one room. A surreal kingdom where the walls look like a magical sky and surfaces enchant with desert volumes and earthy hues.

The star of the Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter 2015/16 advertising campaign is Ciara, the American hip hop artist, who embodies beauty with a hint of wildness.

The Maison’s tailoring workmanship enhances the printed silks, which evaporate from black into the colours of a dreamlike world, until they capture the warmth of a starry night with the brilliance of elegant solid colours.

The long, flowing dresses bear traces of precious traditional oriental embroideries, transforming them into sumptuous, modern details.

Ciara interprets the Cavalli woman with purity and spontaneity.

Her youthful, proud elegance dominates the colours of the scene, entrusted to the lens of photographer Francesco Carrozzini.

Shots that capture the seductive energy of a woman ready to build her very own kingdom beyond mere dreams, taking the beauty to the throne of personality.
