Review: Vogue Paris April 2013 Issue

Review: Vogue Paris April 2013 Issue
By Heather Dunhill

Well, I’m not sure what — but something happened over there in the executive offices of Vogue Paris. The chic tome has undergone a sea change of style and it’s quite fabulous.

Our highly desired and coveted fashionable mag largely resembles an exceptional ode to woman. Especially the "Montres" editorial beginning on page 85. Photographer Giampaolo Sgura and stylist Claire Dhelens give us sexy up front and very personal, the way  only the French press can. It’s simple and sweet, showing us the epitome of the Parisian girl and how lovely she can be in only a timepiece, tousled tresses, petal pink polish, and Carine Gilson’s couture lingerie or a crisp white blouse. ~Sigh~

The issue shines. Specifically for the peripatetic femme who lusts for the luxe of travel. Stylists Véronique Didry, Sarajane Hoare, Anastasia Barbieri, and even Emmanuelle Alt, carried the issue’s theme by expertly tackling the clash of Peruvian heat and hue, incorporating a Roy G. Biv blend of color into an already sultry culture. It’s all in the mix, proving Machu Picchu is only one of the modern wonders of the world that can be found on the South American continent.

Vogue Paris Translation: Le Point De Vue De Vogue May 2013

I applaud Emmanuelle Alt's punk chic approach to the May issue of Vogue Paris as inspired by the exhibit "Punk: Chaos to Couture," opening this month at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. I admire the current punk styling as well as the finely curated flashbacks. Brava, Emmanuelle ! Encore, s'il vous plait !

Le punk est dans l'air. Une attitude, des looks, un courant de fond, auxquels fait écho une formidable exposition au Met de New York («Punk : Chaos to Couture»). Pendant les défilés de l'hiver 2014, on notait une allure rebelle chez Hedi Slimane pour Saint Laurent, du vinyle et des clous chez Donatella Versace, des crêtes de couleur chez Fendi, ou encore des cuissardes bardées de chaînes chez Chanel. Le mouvement punk, celui des origines, est né à New York au tournant des années 70 au fond d'un bar du Bowery. Quel était le mot d'ordre ? Refuser la loi du business, affirmer son identité. À Londres, Malcolm McLaren et Vivienne Westwood, duo génial et libertaire, prenaient le relais dans leur boutique de King's Road. Jeans et T-shirts déchirés, épingles à nourrice, crânes rasés dévalèrent dans la rue. Ce n'était pas qu'un feu de paille. Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, mais aussi Marc Jacobs, Rick Owens, Karl Lagerfeld, sans oublier Riccardo Tisci ont tour puisé dans les codes punk. Une véritable révolution du style, «Forever Young».

Punk is in the air. An attitude, of the looks, an undercurrent, which echoes a great exhibition at the Met in New York ("Punk: Chaos to Couture"). During the Winter 2014 shows, we noted the rebellious allure of Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent, the vinyl and nails from Donatella Versace, the colorful mohawks at Fendi, or even the waders bristling with chains at Chanel. The punk movement, the origins, was born in New York at the turn of the 70s at the end of a Bowery bar. What was the motto? Refute the law of business, assert its identity. In London, Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood, the brilliant and anarchist duo, took over in their shop on King's Road. Jeans and torn t-shirts, safety pins, skinheads raced down the street. It was not a flash in the pan. Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, as well as Marc Jacobs, Rick Owens, Karl Lagerfeld, Riccardo Tisci have in turn drawn from the punk codes. A revolution of style, "Forever Young."

Vogue Paris Collections Automne-Hiver 2014

As you may know, in addition to her role at Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt directs the publication of Vogue Paris Collections each season, a limited edition which showcases the clothing and accessories from the runways in Paris, New York, London, and Milan. Special thanks to our contributing editor, Richard James, for supplying the English translations of the editor's letters from the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 issue of Vogue Paris Collections.

Editor's letter on the collections

What's new this season? In a word: black. For A/W 2014 black is back in force — everywhere — as the new indispensable standard bearer for collections geared to offering a more understated look. For, although fashion has a variety of functions, such as creating aspirations or inspiring us to travel, this winter the mood is much cozier, more introspective, and classic, too.

The looks are more confident and more comforting, thanks to the rounded silhouettes and protectively snug top coats with timeless appeal. It's all about dressing up warmly, and not just because of the cold weather: the point is that it's actually a way of creating a more day-to-day, accomplished, independent and genuine allure. "Youthism" has, by and large, had its day and has now given way to bountiful femininity in the prime of life. Pride of place goes to strong, 40s-inspired pencil suit lines, the feel good glamour of pyjamas, the sensual pleasures of every kind of fur, the pure, robust — and soft-to-the-touch — personality of leather, as well as emblematic, assertive menswear touches. Which brings us to the season's centerpieces: blousons and biker jackets, which are here to remind us that, when all is said and done, women and men actually are from the same planet.

Editor's letter on the accessories

For A/W 2014, bags and clutches are impeccably foursquare, footwear comes with mostly pointy low heels and metallic detailing and sparkle flourish. Tortoiseshell, luxuriously graphic leather, and fire create a more natural look, with a strong focus on blacks, greys, and dashes of red. This winter, accessories are a celebration of truly civilized Ladyhood — the small pleasures in life and the height of refinement, punctuated by a more masculine streak in the form of biker jackets or studded punk rock influences. Woman beautiful, on the one hand, woman rebel, on the other. These seemingly contradictory facets nonetheless see eye to eye on one important point: both assert their authenticity. No frills. The line-up of accessories, dainty and more rugged alike, stay the distance, steadfastly designed to last, to keep us company and embellish the figure.

Vogue Paris: Miss Vogue: Aux Portes De Cuzco

Vogue Paris: Miss Vogue: Aux Portes de Cuzco
By Richard James

As Kasia Struss has for a long time been one of my favorite models, I was thrilled to see her gracing the pages of the latest issue of Vogue Paris; her attitude, her sense of style, and her grace and beauty all fit the aesthetics of their reader.

In "Miss Vogue: Aux Portes de Cuzco," I felt Kasia symbolized a somewhat modern day Peruvian living in a big city, her closet full of unique finds from her country that she is ever so proud to strut around in as a reminder of where she comes from, the heritage that helps define who and what she is, but this girl isn't homesick from the way she's proudly showing her country's culture with her urban twist on her native dress.

I found that although the editorial contains a lot of basic items such as jeans and sweaters it is so creatively and uniquely done, you don't necessarily need a couture gown to be considered imaginative.

Now I'm not going to pretend I know much about Peru and this is what I loved about the issue: it not only shows you the tranquil scenery, it also sheds light on the culture and its people such as the positively handsome Alvaro Malpartida who made a welcomed addition to Vogue Paris.
