Fashion does it Better

Do Not Need Science, Just Beauty Etc.

The 'game' has officially started but the 'games' are not done yet. Even if everyone here and there wants everyone else there and here to believe the affair is packed for the season. Predictions, bets, wild guesses and whatever else it could be: every mouth right now can say five or ten names, even with the best luck the final results have high chances to be dramatically different. That might be a very interesting season (still ahead of us for now) and we're living the most boring and frustrating part of it somehow... in a few days... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Elite NY's Models of the Day

Here we go again. Elite NY did it last season and does it again, daily blog features on their new models in town and these 'Models of the Day' caught our attention this time too. Simple polaroid-sheets that say more than long texts or sophisticated editorial outtakes, simple as a light-speed introduction which is probably the only way an agent can talk about his models during fashion week frenzy. Just a post and a few works like... well, the model's name, her favorite designer and music brand. Short statements and loads of visual... [Lire la suite]

Straight Line (To The Point)

It's been a little while since last time we talked about Ksenia. Was a quick intro, actually, and we're really, geniunely happy to be able to drop a few lines again. We've had the opportunity to see a lot of materials of the newcomers who recently arrived in town at New York Models for Spring Summer 2011 and almost each of them would be worth having a complete entry dedicated to her but you know how it goes. Fast and we have to keep everything as selective as possible, as relevant as we can. Making choices and decisions even when... [Lire la suite]

Silver Bullet

    Silver letters and golden girls — the shortest description to talk about Supreme's Spring Summer 2011 show package. Short is not enough, though, for this extended and expensive packet which meets its first goal as soon as you see it: giving a new identity to an brandy with a totally different history. Switching from its previous trademark to a new signature, obviously moving from the original aesthetic to another one reflecting the new vision at the agency. Nobody can tell yet what the impact of the (still) recent moves... [Lire la suite]

Her Stare Is Louder Than Your Voice

      Michelle Den Hollander @ SPS (The Netherlands), Supreme (NY) If you take the time to listen to our rhyme, you would be aware of Michelle's magical stare. Something you can't miss, can't overlook even if you glimpse at the pictures for a few seconds only. Michelle never gets rid of it and that's for the very best but this time Anouk Morgan managed to bring this extraordinary feature to another level. We don't even think it was meant to be this way, it's just the natural result of a great collaboration, of a model... [Lire la suite]

Judging The Book By Its Cover

Grey like the sky we like, grey like an atmosphere. If we begin with Grey Magazine, we can hardly stop so let's rather spare our words tonight and keep them for the day we'll have it in hands and see what's inside for real. Let's stop and spare, and let's stick to the cover. Beautiful and simple, simply beautiful and beautifully simple (sorry for using that old trick again) as we wish every cover would be (or become). Plain and powerful, like a lost treasure you would find again by chance. As subtle as it's simple, showing what... [Lire la suite]

Reality

      Reny @ New York Models (NY) You could totally imagine her coming from a magical realist novel or one of Frida Kahlo's paintings but Reny is from Hungary (VM Model), she's 5'10 high and new at New York Models. And she's for real, neither the character of a book nor a pretty painting. We guess some would love to paint her but so far we see her more as a photographer's muse than in any other role. Recently arrived in town and completing her portfolio these days, hopefully getting a masterpiece in it soon (what do we... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Wilhelmina S/S 2011 on Digital Diamonds

Watching show packages popping up and by is a night-time obsession these days as each agency is currently releasing its own show team for Spring Summer 2011. From aesthetic statements to innovative concepts, from signature styles to visual revolutions, from crazy moods to classy minimalism: this season doesn't lack creativity in New York and actually has been rising non stop over the last few years. Sometimes with the risk of seeing the packaging overshadow the proposals, the concept steal the first role to the contents. It's a... [Lire la suite]

Signe's Signature

        Signe @ Modelwerk (Germany), Next (NY) German day today? Might look like it is. German morning, at least and that happened a bit by chance to be honest (and thanks to two german agencies' clever communication). We've been introduced to Signe's unparalleled appeal by Modelwerk a few weeks ago and a short entry would have been a perfect Summer topic for us. She was labeled 'brand new' and 'modeling for a few weeks' at that time. Again, a perfect feature for mid-July or early August, a fresh breeze to spice... [Lire la suite]

Heart of Class

Ilva @ Supreme (NY) First time we've ever seen and heard of Ilva was less than two weeks ago when she first popped on her mother agency's blog. Place (Hamburg) is never short of surprises when it comes to cool newcomers (also make sure you've seen Laila featured on Tuesday here) with distinctive looks and vibes. Seeing Ilva was quite a little shock for anyone having a thing for strawberry blond hair and peculiar features. And class, because that's what the story is all about. And lightspeed evolution since she first... [Lire la suite]
