Fashimals: Fashion stars transformed into animals

-

Alber Elbaz as an owl. Karl Lagerfeld as a cat. Terry Richardson as a guinea pig and a lemur. Anna Wintour as a praying mantis. The folks who run Tumblr blog Fashimals have created just that. The concept is simple: it takes every big name in the fashion industry, and transforms them into animals.

Check out their blog, is pretty cool.

Versace x H&M

-

As you well may be aware of, Versace will be the designer to follow up H&M’s widely successful collaboration with Lanvin.

When news first broke we were told the collection would will draw inspirations from Versace archives since ’78. Images of most pieces hit the internet a few days ago and proved this statement accurate. The iconic black dress with gold buttons, the colorful patterns, the Grecian geometric patterns…its all there.

Lanvin Hiver 2011 ft. Pitbull

A step towards the return of fun in luxury?

The ever so brilliant Alber Elbaz of Lanvin has just offered us a one minute sneek peek into his world. In this Steven Meisel directed video, models Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann dance to Pitbull’s I Know You Want Me whilst wearing pieces from his Fall Winter 20111 collection.  It is refreshing to see a large fashion house take a fun approach to the usual sober tones that surround this season’s campaigns, and Alber dancing at the end of it reminds us all that sometimes its good not to be taken so seriously.
