Two Beers and more than a Half

Two beers and a half, that's what it takes to get the bubbles back, and to follow the inspiration going through, to be in tune with the moon. They say I'm just like a friend of mine, may they spoil their tongue and drool some dirt, together, and a half. I can't buy your damned dreams, I'm fated to try, only try, but I do like fire when it burns. There is no joker, no cocaine around, just happy water that makes lovely brains. Where's my coat, where's my skin, where is my underwear as I have to begin, with something earthly while... [Lire la suite]

Spleening Around

Moving in circles or twists, you'd rather groom your gloom and forget about french fries and driving licenses. Plenty of girls, looking for fun at bargain price, running towards wooden walls and falling like spoiled lemons off their tree. One against storms and bolts shaking a reality that gets more and more bizarre at every step made away from the main road. Another walking her sadness on the grassy hills that never recovered from urban scars. And Valerija Kelava (here photographed by Benjamin Lennox for L'Express Styles),... [Lire la suite]

Veni Vidi Vici

Tune your eyes and ears for one of the last times as we did while working on this piece. Who are the "faces of five years of FDIB" was the main question behind our idea to (re-)feature a final time these models who regularly appeared on this page from their first steps in this business till end of our project. We don't pretend we took part in anything in their careers but were our wildcards from the starts, models we were probably among the only ones (besides their agents of course) to believe in their future and who proved us the...

Tatatata Bengbengbeng (All The Rage)

      Valerija Kelava and Hanne Gaby Odiele @ Ford (NY), Hannah Holman @ Elite (NY) Working till two in the morning, waking up with loud disco straight in the ears and working again. Did we even sleep or did we dream we slept? That is the question and a very good one. Vogue Italia is not a dream, though it's a shame it hasn't reached our favorite bookshop yet -- will probably have to kick some asses soon if we want to get it in time.. next time. Because this issue is all the rage here and now, and makes us eager to see... [Lire la suite]

Frozen Tears

Valeria Kelava @ Ford (NY), Oui (Paris) Ending the season with a flawless week in Paris from Balenciaga to Miu Miu, from Givenchy to Louis Vuitton, from Rick Owens to Viktor & Rolf, from Giambattista Valli to Kenzo and sorry for the ones we've had to skipped, they would be worth a mention too. Flawless show-list and a good editorial kick to keep it all sky-high. Two stories in Vogue Italia's October issue would be enough to write a note even with no shows to back it up but the combination of both can be considered as an... [Lire la suite]

Ringside Seat

Valerija Kelava @ Next and Iselin Steiro @ Women Some models are literally propelled in the spotlights as soon as they arrive on stage. Either they are push by some unknown physical forces or they do really attract the light to never let it go. Some other models make their way in the shadows, either totally unaware of the lights next door or they couldn't care less and cherish their comfy darkness. Till the day has come to get out of dark, all of a sudden or step by step, depending on the model herself and what's surrounding... [Lire la suite]

Coveted

          Valerija Kelava @ Next Valerija Kelava hasn't only managed to work out her second flawless show season in a row and doesn't only get one editorial after the other, she also knows how to add that supplement of soul one needs to leave a real mark in modeling. Treating each piece of her works like a true performance (both expressions and body language are beyond breathtaking absolutely everytime and everywhere) and she's refreshing classics or basics from gothic moods to nudes. Last piece is also... [Lire la suite]

// Parallel Lines //

Abbey Lee Kershaw @ Next, cover by Richard Prince styled by Tamara Rothstein. Bottom left you can see a little scar on the magazine that travelled a lot before arriving at home here. Got POP in hands, finally found it in town. It took a while till it arrived at our local bookstore but it's here, big and beautiful. Our copy suffered a little from travelling to our half-godforsaken city but it's still amazing to have it, smell it, read it, look at it over and over again. A magazine really becomes a magazine the day you can touch ... [Lire la suite]

Casting Connections at Sharon Wauchob Fall 2010

  HANNE GABY ODIELE To tell you the truth, we didn't attend as many shows as we used to as we spent less time in Paris while our schedule was heavier than ever. Though, one we wouldn't miss for anything on earth is Sharon Wauchob. For the silhouettes on the runway of course but as a model-focused webpage, mostly for the impeccable casting they never fail to have there. Our favorite motto being that every casting has to be a statement (or at least to reflect the mood of a collection), Wauchob's has been on the top of our list for... [Lire la suite]

That's the only thing we really know

Valerija Kelava @ Next (NY, Paris, London, Milan) Couldn't not plan another feature on Valerija, the heat became too hard to ignore. After seing her flawless and poised  at Chanel Haute Couture, betwitching at Prada Menswear and after running to the closest bookshop to get her latest stories in magazine, a few more lines on Ms. Kelava were as obvious as driking coffee in the morning. Last time we talked about the dark-haired dark-horse of last season was for an editorial shared with another favorite, Jenny Sinkaberg in... [Lire la suite]
