Vogue Paris: Couture

Vogue Paris: Couture
By Heather Dunhill

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed an editorial styled by Emmanuelle Alt. As a refresher, they haven’t always garnered my highest praise. But, here in the May issue of Vogue Paris she rocks a new Alt, releasing her hold on the 80s with the editorial titled "Couture."

Alt styles haute couture with the dynamic photographic talent of Inez and Vinoodh with model Freja Beha Erichsen. The clean shots pop with punk subculture, a nod to the opening of Punk: Chaos to Couture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this month. Alt proves to us that to be stylish you have to know fashion’s past because history repeats itself — punk is fresh again.

She hits all the hardcore notes for the modern punk poster girl who has taken a maroon, four-door sedan to the borough of Brooklyn where she’ll duck into the underground clubs, eschewing the mainstream and embracing the new noir. It was a sight from the opening image with the studded toque designed by Philip Treacy atop the hot white, cropped Armani Privé jacket to the divine Zuhair Murad gold and alabaster feather cape that shrouded a sequined pantsuit, hit with color at her tomato red pumps.

The strong-shouldered metallic foil frock by Iris Van Herpen emphasizes the rarefied bird on the streets of Willamsburg that can make her way onto any scene there is to be seen. Freja Beha Erichsen in the gilt mini dress by Atelier Versace can open all doors herself, no doubt. But, take a tip from Alt when you get to the Maison Martin Margiela ligne Artisanal shot — pairing silver with a slick scarlet — without question, it will be found on the trend-current street stylers, so get to it before they do...

Vogue Paris: Un Ange A Ma Table

Vogue Paris: Un Ange A Ma Table
By Yuka Ryou

For the May issue of Vogue Paris, Joe McKenna styled an editorial titled "Un ange à ma table." The model is Sam Rollinson, photographed by David Sims.

This theme was difficult for me. When I had looked at this editorial at first, I couldn’t understand the meaning of "Un ange à ma table." Does it mean "An angel at my table," right? Is she an angel? I’m not going to say irony. I really couldn’t understand.

Absolutely, these photos are beautiful. However to be honest, I can't explain well my emotion, but I had felt a touch of loneliness from these. Why...?

From these big silhouette clothes, I had remembered the Fall 2012's COMME des GARÇONS RTW. Do you remember that? It was a fantastic collection. Giovanna Battaglia had been wearing the red coat so naturally. (She is awesome!) But can we wearing it nice like her? Those collection pieces were flat and strong design, so it would be difficult to wear in the office or town. In Japan, one young actress was wearing the same jacket on a TV commercial for Tokyo metro. But it didn't match with the town. The girl looks like a clown…

Of course I love that Vogue Paris showed us dream and fantasy. But I prefer more Parisian mode style. My fashion's motto is how do I take the collection essence into my usual coordinates. Parisian is showing us the fashion which mixed by basic and mode style. I hope to get into my wardrobe the style. 

Sometimes, I'm thinking about, "What is the own mode style?" Still I don’t have my answer. I want to know how do you think. And what do you feel from these photos? Please teach to me!

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."
