Hannah Holman. Frida Gustavvsson. And now Ondria Hardin. As Marc Jacobs says his farewells at Louis Vuitton, releasing the Spring 2014 Campaign for the brand today featuring the muses of Jacobs, he leaves us with more to look forward to at Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs, (after sadly not going to Coach after his departure at Vuitton), with a Campaign video for the Iconic perfume Daisy, starring one of his current muses, Ondria Hardin. Directed by Sofia Coppola, the video to me, feels very fresh, subtle, and just oh-so-Chic; Hardin gracefully prancing through a field picks up flowers along the way, and finds a spot to lay down and look at the Beauty of Spring. Definately a Spring favorite of mine to do, you know you feel that sensual feeling of freedom, eve just watching the video.
I have always admired Alice Temperley‘s work at her brand, Temperley London, the collections are always Feminine and Classy; yet so Fresh and Modern at the same time. Not to mention, her collections never dare to leave me unimpressed. Especially her latest Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Which gives your favorite Classic and Feminine staples, (think LBD, lace, and a Staple Trench), a more Fresh, Modern twist, (thinking on the lines of bold embellishment, leather, and 60s inspired staples such as: bright pink shifts, floral printed jumpsuits, and geometric shifts). But as these Classic and Modern staples are mixed, I can’t help but see a bit of the delicate 1940s inspired fashions, like: the long full skirt, a feather Shaw, and long and luxuriously delicate evening Gowns towards the end of the collection. Even making me think a little bit of Great Gatsby. Overall, giving off a very Modern, yet Classy and Dramatic vibe all wrapped up in one stunning collection.
I always love how Preen‘s Thornton Bregazzi designs many of his collections, using many different fabrics on dresses for a very artsy, Geometric feel. That style was seen a lot throughout the collection in Beautiful pastel and neutral shades. Which I think really brings a very fresh, and almost painter like style.
Besides his many artsy, Geometric ensembles, Bregazzi also designs many shifts in pastels, or a Neon pink, and cut in a very artsy way. The collection makes me think of an art studio really coming to life, with the clothing.
