Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year’s Eve with family and/or friends. I’m excited to start the new year! So far I already know that in April I will get a permanent position at the museum which means we can start to look for a house. The process of buying a house seems quite overwhelming but I’m sure it will all work out when we find our dream house. But anyway, for those of you who are taking it easy today, check out the links below while I work on my wardrobe dissection of 2015.
I recently posted a picture of one of Viktor&Rolf’s Van Gogh girls from their SS15 collection on Instagram. We’re currently showing three designs in the museum where I work and they’re even more gorgeous in real life. It’s always a bit hard to define Viktor&Rolf who’s runway shows often resemble a performance piece such as their recent Fall 2015 collection titled Wearable Art. I love how they transform the outfits into actual artworks by unfastening the works from the models and carefully hanging them on a white museum-like wall. One of the designs has already been donated to the museum. You can watch both shows here and here.
The 2012 documentary ‘In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye‘ is also a fun and entertaining watch if you haven’t seen it yet. It focuses on some of the world’s most influential fashion images as conceived by the magazine’s iconic fashion editors. The film features behind-the-scenes interviews with editors who have contributed to the magazine’s legacy, including current editor-in-chief Anna Wintour; fashion editors such as Grace Coddington and Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele (the latter is quite hysterical actually) and fashion designers such as Marc Jacobs, Alber Elbaz and Nicolas Ghesquière. You can watch it here.
