ZIMMERMANN’S SPRING 2017 AD CAMPAIGN

DIY meets Eighties femininity in Nicky Zimmermann’s romantic spring 2017.Gone are the days of DIY for Nicky Zimmermann — as her brand has become a cult favorite with vintage- and beach-loving girls worldwide — and yet that didn’t stop her from taking her spring collection on a reminiscent journey back to Stranded, her and her friends’ club of choice in Sydney, Australia in the Eighties. “It’s kind of my take on the Eighties, because where I grew up was kind of isolated to the subcultures that were happening — it was a bit more parody,” she explained. In her show notes, she offered details: “We made everything ourselves; it was more about expressing yourself. We ripped up tutus, we stole dad’s shirts, found old pieces of lace. We tied, we tattered, tangled and frayed.”

What’s regularly remarkable about Zimmermann is the brand’s ability to produce high-quality, intricate workmanship while retailing at a sub-designer price point. One piece, a white lace and purply floral menagerie of wraps and tiers (essentially a souped-up prairie dress), was especially striking in terms of its construction. It also featured an off-the-shoulder element, which is proving to be quite trendy in the early stages of NYFW.

WOULD YOU BET IT IS PARIS?

When an interior designer decorates her own home in Paris, the result is always as peculiar as personal. The most fashionable decorator in France, Emilie Bonaventure, showed us in her Parisian flat.


Emilie Bonaventure – founder of the be-attitude agency in 2005 – is all that and her projects prove it to perfection. She is an interior architect, designer, decorator and contemporary art expert, passionate about fashion and gastronomy.

Located in the 9th arrondissement, on the famous street des Martyrs in the district of Montmartre, Emilie Bonaventure’s apartment is his personal refuge but until recently it was also his office. Here, she used to work with her team, particularly in the dining room where the Rose Bakery Team Room concept was born, for example, in the Le Bon Marché store. Today Emilie has an office outside her house, just a few meters from her bright and typically Parisian apartment that has a wooden floor, moldings and fireplaces.

Emilie studied art history at the school of the Louvre and the decor of her home reflects her taste for discipline and especially for objects. “An object is a part of itself, a piece of its own puzzle,” he says. Each element of his apartment tells a story and many were found in the flea market of Saint-Ouen (on the outskirts of Paris). Furniture from the 40s, 50s and 60s coexist with contemporary works of art.

In general, Emilie designs colorful creations with many contrasts. On the contrary, it privileged in its home the neutral tones like the Wimborne White of Farrow & Ball that is combined with some brown and black touches. In the room, he chose pieces from different periods – such as Geoffrey Harcourt’s chair and the neon work of the artist Eric Michel – but with the same types of colors. In the dining room where the table is by Angelo Mangiarotti, the chairs are from the 50’s and the brass lamp dates from the 70’s, the David Hicks wallpaper for Au Fil des Couleurs stands out.

Totally black and gray, the kitchen adorned with works by Pierre Soulages is one of the key spaces. Emilie loves to cook, a passion that was born from her childhood, because her parents own restaurants. “When I was eight, I was fortunate enough to eat with chef Marc Veyrat. I never forgot this experience. The mixture of curiosity, imagination, creativity and professionalism that characterizes it has become a true example for me, a way of thinking. ”

The chromatic palette of the bedroom refers to the living room and provides a peaceful feeling. Interested in people in their everyday universe and their relationship with objects in their environment, Emilie Bonaventure always seeks to generate new ideas to give life to spaces with style.

THE NEW IBIZA PLACE

The new Ibiza place where you will see EVERYTHING! The island has a new meeting place, the Tatel restaurant. It imitates a clandestine bar from the 1920s, has a large terrace and has a privileged location on the beachfront.

When you visit Ibiza the options of catering and entertainment may seem endless, but there are some that stand out more than others. Tatel Ibiza, which has just opened its doors, seems to be one of the latter. The restaurant, with 1,400 square meters of space and a terrace on the beach, offers traditional Spanish food, luxury cocktails and an interior design of envy.

As if from a past time, as if a girl with a cigarette case and a flapper dress was coming out of a corner, you might actually feel like an Owen Wilson in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris: you go through a door and suddenly you’re in the 20 years. Colors that highlight, much copper and antique furniture give a unique touch to the space that, despite being retro, breathe the most valid. The place is divided into several separate spaces: the bar area, the restaurant area, the terrace – with space for 100 diners – and even a large area perfect for private events. The design of the site comes from the imagination of IlmioDesign, a studio made up of Italians Michele Corbani and Andrea Spada who highlight the presence of noble materials such as stone or wood, along with marine colors and painted glass.

Tatel Ibiza has an enviable location and will open between 19:00 and 3:00. It is on the Platja d’en Bossa, between Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel and Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, and will offer live music with many things in common with the one that is famously heard in Ushuaïa (both places belong to Mabel Management) and a gastronomic offer Focused on traditional Spanish food.

PRADA | S/S ’17 AD CAMPAIGN FT JUDE LAW

A Story, the Prada Spring 2017 Men’s campaign, tells a tale of a man that finds his perfect resting place in the dunes amongst nature.

The new campaign video by Willy Vanderperre continues the “escape the 9-to-5” narrative that was first introduced in the 365 Spring 2017 campaign. While the first chapter featured younger faces racing through an office building and escaping to a rooftop, A Story follows a seasoned gentleman that manages to escape the proverbial hamster wheel and find the resting place that he has longed for.

Jude Law stars in the black-and-white short film wandering aimlessly but with a purpose, feeling the sand and straw beneath him while he, as the narrator puts it, “enjoys the company of his thoughts and memories of friends, lovers, and time.”

A Story conveys its message very clearly and captures an audience that may have felt left out by the 365 advertisement. Young Pope star Jude Law is much closer to the Prada man in style, character and lifestyle, and longing for time alone is an issue that a seasoned man can relate to. Amidst work trips, family life, and maintaining one’s health, when does one get a chance to stop, breathe and take a minute to enjoy nature or our living space? Law may not run through office halls or scale a building in A Story, but his solitude in A Story is enviable.

TOM FORD | SPRING 2017

It’s been a busy week chez Tom Ford.

Ford was one of a handful of designers—Burberry’s Christopher Bailey and Tommy Hilfiger among them—to pioneer the see-now-buy-now model when he hosted a starry dinner, runway show, and Leon Bridges performance at the Four Seasons last September. It was the most glamorous New York Fashion Week moment since Beyoncé, Julianne Moore, and Lauren Hutton, et al. walked his debut womenswear catwalk back in 2010. But Ford’s see-now-buy-now experiment is to be short-lived.

He’ll be on the official New York Fashion Week calendar come September, showing not an in-season collection, but a Spring 2018 collection. “It was good to try see-now-buy-now, and I’m glad I did, and eventually that’s how the industry will work,” Ford said. “But right now, the shows and store delivery dates aren’t aligned. We missed crucial weeks of selling time and valuable long-lead press.” He’s also moving his women’s atelier to Los Angeles from London.

Ford wasn’t saying if we can expect a Four Seasons–type experience, but knowing him, the odds are it won’t be your basic run-of-the-mill runway show. “Especially in this moment of designer musical chairs,” he said, “the best thing to be is true to your brand. And I have a brand, I have a following.” For Fall, he’s giving his followers very fitted tailoring (“my customer responds to that. When it’s boxy, it’s not as strong”) colorful, drape-y cocktail numbers with zesty stockings to match, equally bright shearling and fox furs, and high-shine black patent outerwear.

TROPICAL OASIS IN BILBAO

Three bars and three proposals mark the character of the Happy River restaurant, in Bilbao la Vieja. Its terrace, overlooking the estuary, and its hundreds of plants make it a relaxing space.

The Happy River restaurant opened just two months ago. Located in the old flour factory La Ceres – the first building of reinforced concrete of Spain -, the project of reform required to respect the space and to adapt it to the new functionalities of the place. “We entered this work with great respect because the building was unique,” says the director of the study of interior design Rosita, Juan Marchante, in charge of the project.

Between a tropical and cosmopolitan air, the restaurant surprises with details that combine wood, marble, colors and natural plants. In total, more than 250 varieties of plants coexist in the restaurant, which helps to create a relaxed atmosphere. This is also responsible for the heated terrace, 100 square meters of surface. The terrace, elevated through some steps, allows to contemplate the estuary lying on some of the hammocks of the firm Flamant.

Color plays a prominent role both inside and outside the restaurant. If the white predominates in the interior, Marchante has opted for the blue tones for the outside. “The white color is very difficult when there is not much light, the terrace instead painted it in dark grayish blue to allow a transition from the outside to the interior,” he says. On the terrace there are tables of colors of Moroso, metallic chairs in white Emu color and the hammocks with Belgian seal.

For the furniture, the studio has relied on the firm Emeco for the main stools and Magis for the Japanese bar. The tables are of Flamant and combine the steel of its legs with the tropical touch of the chairs and the raw fabrics of Gastón and Daniela of the banks. The funny touch of lighting is made by the famous light monkeys of Seletti. Welcome to the most tropical Bilbao!

MOROCCO

MEDINA OF FEZ, MOROCCO BY A PHOTOGRAPHER

01

Fez Palais El Mokri was built in 1906 by Si Tayeb el Mokri, Pasha to Casablanca and son of the Grand Vizir of the King. The Palais is now home to a few of the Pasha’s heirs who charge a small entrance fee to curious visitors and, on occasion, rent out a few of the rooms for the night.

02

One of those rooms available for rent is The Red Room.

03

Like with many Moroccan towns, the medina is the center of Fez. Here, a man transports goods in the medina.

04

Bab El Mahrouk is one the medina’s points of entry—and certainly the most striking.

05

This traditionally restored “dar,” or house, retains all the original tilework.

06

These colorful, handcrafted leather slippers, or “babouches,” are a popular souvenir.

07

Photographer Felix Odell says that his favorite thing to do in Fez was simply walk down side streets, people-watch, and get lost.

08

At the medina’s souk, Odell picked up spices and mint to take home to his native Stockholm.

At night, Odell stayed at the Fez Jardin Des Biehn, an elegant old-world property in the medina.

A contrast of patterns and textures in the Pasha Suite mirrored the electic range of textiles found in the souk.

Although some of Morocco’s cities, like Marrakech, are full of people in modern clothes, many of Fez’s residents wear traditional dress.

Traditional Fassi-style pottery was on display at Souk el Henna.

Past the medina’s walls is a small mountain. Locals love to climb it at night for the views of the sun setting over the city.

17

From the hilltops of Mt. Zalegh, you can see the city as well as the countryside.

East meets West in Vogue Korea‘s November issue as British beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley models exquisite floral dresses and opulent jewels for the cover story captured by Sebastian Kim, styled by Ye Young Kim.

We’re pretty used to seeing Rosie Huntington-Whiteley styled the exact same way, shoot after shoot. She vamped it up on the cover of Lui magazine and even the British version of Harper’s Bazaar kept Rosie right inside her comfort zone. But Vogue Korea just served up the Brit beauty looking demure and straight-faced for its November 2015 issue. Photographed by Sebastian Kim and styled by Ye Young Kim, the model-turned-actress looks terrific wearing Burberry Prorsum while posing among decadent surroundings.
