3 favorites

Three of my favorite designers just being awesome as per usual. Y'know. Whatevs.

1. Hussein Chalayan Ad Campaign
Ye heard me. I was surprised but man what a great first campaign. I love the mysterious journal feel and sketches, which add a lot to the clothes even in pictures like the 4th one where you can't see the clothes really well.
Shit, could you imagine how epic an ad campaign for ss 09 would've been?! Still need to post on the impulse buy from that collection I made like a month ago and somehow still haven't posted on. The frugal grandma that makes up 96% of me wants to hate it but ummm it's beautiful.(source)

2. Rei Kawakubo's portrait series of Jun Takahashi of UNDERCOVER

One thing is that it's two of my favorite designers of all time, one of them honoring the other *flail* and all this awesome love goin around. But also seeing Rei Kawakubo's artwork outside of clothing is amazing too. Ugh, what can she not do. I bet she's even good at SPORTS. She probably makes stuff like
this in 5 minutes and then is all, "brb, game of b-ball with the dudes." And then she and Yohji and Issey and Junya play an intense game and then are all, "K, catch ya tomorrow at the black polka dotted garden with Yayoi."

3. Vivienne Westwood on Jonathan Ross
Love of my life! I pretty much bought the new issue of Dazed because of her interview with James Lovelock.
Watch it and learn all you will ever need to know, ever.


EDIT: When I wrote this I tried to find the Miu Miu AW09 ad campaign I'd
seen in print but couldn't until this morning! How perfect is it? Normally I think it's weirdly cheesy and too myspace-y when all of the photo is black and white except for one color but it just looks really awesomely cold here with the nude.

Westwood is so wise. She is a goddess.

anna said...

her interview with James Lovelock in D&D was even better than i had expected

Caitlin said...

when old viv came to my uni she made 3 students cry by slagging off their work in front of them. my opinion of her was a bit shattered after that xx

Lara said...

I watched the Vivienne Westwood interview, it was great! Shes such a cool lady...and her dress was awesome.

Soren Lorensen said...

i like that you used numbers to organise your thoughts

and that ad campaign is dooooppppee.

Isabel said...

Oooh, loving the shot of Iekeliene Stange. She is quirky and wonderful. Much like Vivienne Westwood who is my personal favourite designer of all time. (I suppose she means as much to me as Rei means to you?)

Tavi said...

Caitlin-Wow. But hey, I'd listen to her! Chick knows what she's talking about, criticism should be valued.

burn that dress said...

wooo another Vivienne Westwood fan!

Nice and Shiny said...

I just read the Viv x Lovelock piece today, sooooo good. Can't beleive I actually WANTED to read an article about the environment, but his ideas about global warming are just so refreshing and I completely agree with his comment on our efforts to "save the planet"... that they are basically redundant and that we need to take action against the inevitable climate changes in the future instead of trying to cut down on plastic bags and buying those bloody swirly lightbulbs...

oooh, and look at Vivienne's fab dress! Work it, gran! When she said the thing about wearing your tablecloth I thought of Belle <3

<3<3<3

Ashley said...

Well.. said...

I LOOOOVVVE Hussein Chalayan! I based my whole final campaign at university around intelligent textiles and I was so influenced by his mechanical clothing and I convinced myself I NEEDED a table dress. The new campaign in brilliant. I also watched the Jonathan Ross interview coz I live in England and I loved it, they had Emma Watson the week before and she is gorgeous but I loved that vivienne was wearing that dress that was just basically a whole roll of gorgeous fabric.

I like how he says to Vivian "you are very passionate about this aren't you?" ahahahha um you should be too idiot! The guy proves Vivians point, about everyone thinking they can have an opinion on what is inevitable!! Stupid humans!

MEF said...

the interview was SO inspiring and fascinating. i could watch it countless times and never get bored!

beautiful post!

I am so moved by Dame Vivienne. How can someone be so awesome?? I wish she was my grandmother.

P.S. Tavi, you have innnncredible taste, ESPECIALLY for being so young. I feel like it's almost guaranteed that you will be exponentially more stylish as time goes on. I'm only 18, but even 2 or 3 years ago I had no fucking idea who Rei Kawakubo was. Thanks for such an inspired blog!!
