Fashion does it Better


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]

La Revanche d'Une Brune

Jacquelyn Jablonski @ Supreme (NY) Tears of love might be frozen tears, it's still not supposed to mean they should freeze your mind as well and stick it to the last memories of an era. And when the next chapter is able to warm you up, even when it's actually two chapters later that everything happens, these tears which should have never dried finally vanish and leave room on your face for a brand new smile. Not going to dive deeper into details on the way we lived Valentino Garavani's retirement some seasons ago as getting too... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE The Sequel Part 1

Barbara Palvin at Prada, backstage from Over the last seasons, our TMSRRE series (The Most Subjective Runway Reviews Ever) could include more than 30 girls. This time we thought we should rather slow down our show coverage's pace as castings have become trickier than ever. No real point anymore in featuring one girl or another based on her most recent runway appearances, even backed by some serious editorial proofs or prospects. Walking this or that show doesn't mean as much as it could have in the past or maybe everybody is... [Lire la suite]

Jacquelyn Does it Better

        Jacquelyn Jablonski @ Ford (NY) We don't know if we should write about Jacquelyn as a personal favorite or as one of the most sensational and talented models of these last few years. We think it will be both as we're quite unable not to go personal at a certain level. Let's start with obvious facts, though: her showlist from NY reached an unmatched level when it comes to high quality runway, opening quite a bunch of them (including Philosophy). To put it simple she walked them all, from Marc to Zac and... [Lire la suite]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Dossier Journal's NY coverage by Kristiina Wilson

Alexa Yudina and Irina Kazhamiakina @ Women (NY), the AL girls were beyond playful at Costello Tagliapetra. Jacquelyn Jablonski @ Ford (NY), Ford's force and FDIB's favorite at VPL Elena Ivanova @ Wilhelmina (NY), becoming one of our absolute favorites these days -- strong features, fragile look at Thuy Georgia Hilmer @ Next (NY), another favorite featured a few days ago, loved her shirt (again!) at VPL Bregje Heinen @ Women Direct (NY), Micha's muse is stealing spotlights even when she's lost in her thoughts at VPL Alina Krasina...

Eight Days to Countdown

Scouting goes from "get discovered by chance at your local shopping-mall" to "be seen, be signed - rush to worlwide events". Usually we're more focused on street-scouting and lucky discoveries, we still enjoy the charms of the good-old way to find new talents. But contests have definitely started to take their own place in our heart as another reliable process of discovering models after attending a couple of them at a small-town level. A good way not to overlook anyone and when they are run by high-profile... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE part 16: Jacquelyn

      Jacquelyn Jablonski @ Ford (NY), Elite (Milan) Saving a few extra pictures for a future update has almost become a rule for us during showtime. And once again it was worth to keep a few polas of Jacquelyn from Ford NY in case she does well in Europe too. After an amazing start in New York earlier this month, her showlist from Milan looks simply flawless from day one to the end. Prada, Max Mara, Gucci or Dolce & Gabbana are enough example to feel the power and a lot of good signs for Jacquelyn's future.... [Lire la suite]

FORD Does It Better

      Lakshmi Menon @ Ford (NY) Some agencies want their girls to get their slice of spotlights even before the shows begin. Some others are quite quick to update us even during the rush and a few ones only consider it worth to tell us something when the shows are over for a little while. Ford NY belongs to none of these groups, their strategy includes both the efficiency of releasing the info in time and the wisdom of those who know to wait until the perfect moment. To tell it clearly: never too early, never too... [Lire la suite]

Ford's Hot Faces + Heat Waves

                  It's been raining since the sun woke up this morning but Ford NY keeps the heat alive on a dark-grey July day. We love packages and we love them to surprise us, we love when they use a magical formula to find the right medley. Here we go. Some of these summer stunners (love this expression and it sound more appropriate than ever) were already featured because we love them since the day we saw their polas (Natasha, Juliana, Jacquelyn). Some others are the nicest surprises... [Lire la suite]

Jacquelyn as it seems

        Jacquelyn @ Ford (NY) Laid-back AND dramatic. These were our first thoughts when we saw Jacquelyn's tests by James Mahon. The depth of her gaze is impressive, almost haunting. But her poses, her attitude in front of the camera is pure coolness, relaxed and relaxing. Self confident enough but never too much which makes the perfect balance when you're looking for a nice way to feature a model in development. Maybe the most interesting (and even thrilling) is how James managed to capture her image the best... [Lire la suite]
