Jennifer Lopez crooned Blondie’s “Call Me” while writing in the phone booth in a trench and logo tee. Michael B. Jordan struts like a sheep in a sheep jacket and a nice gauge turtleneck on the streets of New York – “the sexiest man alive, looking even finer in those beautiful threads,” according to a voice-over. Kennettie James Apa, aka, “KJ Apa of Riverdale”, takes the role of a straight news anchor from “Weekend Update” and Kaia Garber opens a handbag to find a nest of duck eggs as one in “Mysterious Animals Upcoming Revealed.
Presenting Coach TV, Fall 2021 Collection version. Finally, a fashion film worth watching.
This is the first all-digital fashion month. (Last season, there were a lot of socially live shows.) Originally, it didn’t seem like such a big deal. After all, there has been a long and enthusiastic love affair between fashion and film before “funny faces”. And besides, we’ve been going in that direction for some time, showing through our smartphones with a front row view that when they were actually in the room, to broadcast them to the world of social media Was better for
But while all fashion shows can be filmed these days, it is increasingly clear that, in the current round of half-rounds of ready-to-wear collections (officially, it’s Milan Fashion Week), not all fashion shows make good movies. Huh.
Some of them may be simple information vectors, with close-ups detailing that the quilts’ high plush material appears on the Maxamara bathrobe coat. Some might try to dress themselves up with smoke-like outdoor special effects in Alberta Ferretti, mostly served to obscure the range of protective levels: turtles under sweaters under Mahankot and porcelain quill in the evening Bristol wears with pilates. But most of them also yawn.
Or they stayed anyway.
This week, a trio of films-cum-collections provided a different kind of enjoyment, mostly because they were not training a camera on the same old, same old, and calling it new. Instead he added a component that is really all everyone needs right now: a sense of humor. It is the best helper to get through the day – or reach the next day.
So Coach was, by far, the most star-packed video of any collection. (Also present: Megan The Stallion, shining and wringing her nails, and Cole Spruce being the all-sexy QVC with a handbag, among other members of the brand.) The early variety show featured models in surrounding cities. Gave way to snaps. Playing in the stupid cool of the world collection and fall collection. And if the cast was ultimately more important than pretty ho-hum clothes, all the grunge plaids and laces, character nits, and sock hope jackets, together they created a gamut of life and laughter (and a llama) and suggested that Levitt. There may be a tendency.
And there was Moshino, where there was an equally “thrilling short trip to Fashionland”, showing Maye Musk as the mistress of ceremonies, providing the conceptual framework for the classic Moshino-islands tour. There were flying clouds and rustic cow prints; Wasp-waist safari survival suit for urban woods with pockets for brush and blush; And evening gowns in satin and sparkle, all conceived as a fashion play inside the play.
The film took off clothes in The story, rather than making the fabric itself a story, and, as a result, has shown how clothes work in life – an added benefit that the runway alone cannot provide.
Case in point: Kim Jones’ ready-to-wear debut at Fendi, a brilliantly polished glow of “real clothes” on the model (as she said on the zoom call), a maze of ersatz-containing F-shaped glass boxes Making its way through. Broken pillars and classical stones of old Rome. There were plush furs with a swinging carrot-shaped tongue of fur, a charismatic scarf dress from Slytherie Silk and cool tuxedo shorts, all in a fresh neutral palette.
Several boxes in the collection – the house logo, upstairs furs, cool tucks, checked earlier in reference to Fendi’s work – but had a paint-by-numbers whiff (not to mention the recent Bottega Veneta full moon For, at least when it came to fur) fringing). Mr. Jones calls himself a commercial designer, and these were certainly commercial clothes, but in his other job as head of Dior men’s wear, he catches more deeply with the idea of manhood and develops a What does this mean in the world? In contrast, women’s attire was rooted in the past. He could have used some laugh lines.
As Ray Koolhaas, the architect, whose firm sets up for Prada, said at a news conference after an eye-opening Prada video that a spray-painted palette was added to the proposal that the wear itself What to do to stop our present life. , You have to “play” a little.
Miukia Prada and her co-creative director Ruff Simons did it with a set made up of various faux fur-lined romper rooms. Models are graphic Jacquard bodysuits (featured in the female version of tall Johns) via that set Prada men’s show in January), His art deco-meets-’70s-sofa print layered under a solemn dark suit, which itself was layered under fake fur veils and coats were fastened around the body with cocoon-like elegance.
The silk fabric was inset with knit panels on the neck and back, so what looked like more layers was, in fact, a single piece; Single-breasted fabric coats provide a splash of turquoise and teal; And kept the promise of collapse to separate from the gleaning, pellet-cover. If some looks looked more simmons and some more Prada, they were not in opposition to each other, but in concert.
Finally, the flow of the entrance and exit were combined with some group dance scenes to demonstrate how the base layers shifted (another editing benefit of the flick). Short answer: especially in all directions.
