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]

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Marike by Beau Grealy

Marike Le Roux @ Wilhelmina (NY) Long time we haven't officially bookmarked any blog piece on FDIB but truth is we rely a lot more on our second page, J'avoue J'aime for this kind of entries (faster and right to the point). But this occasion seemed made for FDIB as both Marike Le Roux and Beau Grealy were already featured here and when one of our favorite model works with one of our favorite photographer, it's tough not to mention it here. The story comes from Italian Flair, May 2010 issue and was spotted on Wilhelmina's blog... [Lire la suite]

Undercover / On the Cover

  Marike Le Roux @ Wilhelmina (NY) The magazine is French and usually easy to get for us but, this time, got the tip from New York. Go figure, Paris might consider we are already Germany here. Or were we so overbooked we overlooked this ? No time for dilemmas and drama, let's just go to the point: Marike's cover and editorial on/in the new issue of Stiletto. Marike slightly hiding under her top hat but full force glowing on from the front page till the end of her story. Here is a little medley of the pages that gave us the good... [Lire la suite]

Alternative Statements

Gaspard Yurkievich quickly became a regular name on our Paris to-do-list and it's not without any good reason behind. Skipping a meeting for the sake of a casting reminds us our core business includes much more than making then strenghtening connections, like going where things happen and try to find out why. What happened at Yurkievich this season is not very different from previous seasons but that's actually the point, this runway keeps playing its role of highlighting potential major future forces in fashion modeling. Besides... [Lire la suite]

Vibrant

    Marike Le Roux @ Wilhelmina (NY) and Alana Zimmer @ Supreme (NY) Wasn't planned! But we couldn't resist. First, the colorful visuals were perfect to balance and then, Rykiel's red looked awesome with our new layout. Perfect day, isn't it ? If we want to look at the new campaign through the artist's eye, we'd say the atmosphere (warm night at the end of Summer ? Twilight in September) just enhance the vivid colors again while the two faces of Sonia Rykiel Spring 2010 are a perfect match as well. Timeless features,... [Lire la suite]

TMSRRE part 13: Marike

        Marike @ Wilhelmina (NY) "You are what you wear it's true". According to this, Marike is a true treasure, after a hectic week in NY. Even if we would just remember Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs among the several other high level shows walked, it's a real event and calls for celebration. Or at least to drop a few lines like we're doing right now. Marike or the secret cooking at Wilhelmina leading to a sensational creature able to catch any coveted catwalk. Count the silhouette (oh la la, legs -... [Lire la suite]
