Lagerfeld’s darling Cara Delevingne had to learn the basics of boxing (maybe this is the reason she skiped the Chanel Couture fashion show) Her partner on set and rival in the boxing ring became the rising star of the world of modeling Leona Binx Walton.
Arranging an impromptu show in a supermarket, Karl Lagerfeld seems to have decided that the idea was enough exploited, and for the fall 2014 campaign he chose a different theme, that osculate the aesthetics of the collection: boxing.
This is not the first time the two models work together. First it was Balmain’s Fall 2014 ad campaign , devoted to ethnic diversity.
July 14th, 2014. “When I first met Sharon [Van Etten], I was impressed by her rare combination of vulnerability and courage, and I wanted to capture this in the video,” says Karen Collins, the director of “Our Love,” which premieres here today and was co-produced by our very own team here at V Magazine. “On set I felt like a privileged witness to something very personal. For greater intimacy, she closes her eyes for most of the video. But Sharon has the most beautiful eyes in the world, so I felt some sadness in doing this. Luckily, she opens them in the end.”
On paper, Sharon Van Etten’s road towards the critical acclaim she’s receiving for her fourth studio album Are We There looks (refreshingly) substantial. Often compared to indie greats like PJ Harvey, Cat Power and Mazzy Star—who relied on, instead of the aftermath from remixes and mashups generated from MP3 “leaks”—actual demo tapes, Van Etten is an anomaly in today’s music climate. When asked about her success, she almost sounds naïve, mentioning a demo that somehow found its way into the earbuds of TV On The Radio’s frontman Kyp Malone. And from her 2009 debut album onwards, she’s steadily gathered some of the most formidable names in the industry (she’s collaborated with the National, Nick Cave, and J Mascis, to name a few). One only has to listen to her careful sound and sensitive lyrics to know that she isn’t, of course, naïve—even if, from the looks of this video, she’d like you to think otherwise, Sharon Van Etten’s eyes are wide open.
“Working with Karen was a dream,” she tells V of the video’s production. “We sat together and talked about imagery and feeling and distance versus connection, lightness versus darkness—referencing directors like Tarkovsky to articulate beauty in understatement and slowness. ‘Our Love’ is about someone acknowledging that having loved and letting it be over can be just as beautiful as being in love. It can also be a form of rebirth and renewal and inspiring and uplifting, even in the darkness and sadness.”
A CLASSIC GET’S REISSUED, A 17-YEAR-OLD FAN MAKES A CLASSIC. WATCH HER TRIPPY NEW VIDEO FOR 1983’S “CALL IT WEIRD,” MADE USING FOUND FOOTAGE, JUST IN TIME FOR XYMOX’S TRIUMPHANT RETURN
Formed in the Netherlands back in 1983, Xymox (formerly Clan of Xymox) would eventually become one of the most deeply influential synth-pop acts to emerge from that fertile decade. The band’s debut EP—the five-track masterpiece, Subsequent Pleasures—has long been considered a kind of gothy holy grail for record collectors, given that only 500 vinyl copies were ever produced. Thankfully the fine folks at Dark Entries are reissuing this lost classic, complete with never-before-seen photos of the band as well as liner notes courtesy of founding members Ronny Moorings and Anka Wolbert. Now lovingly remastered, the ephemeral darkwave of “Muscoviet Musquito” and “Going Round” sounds exceptionally pristine and gloriously gloomy, making this the perfect soundtrack for the lengthening of summer days and a coming season of practicing the dark arts.
For the five-year anniversary of Dark Entries Records, Xymox, along with label-mates REDREDRED, Bezier, and Max+Mara are touring this summer, starting today in San Francisco (dates below).

July 22nd, 2014. It’s only been a month since Yves Saint Laurent (directed by Jalil Lespert) opened in US theaters, and yet another biopic trailer about the venerated designer has just been unveiled.
Having competed in this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Saint Laurent, directed by Bertrand Bonello, is another attempt at portraying one of the 20th century’s most revered icons. Although this project is technically unofficial—it hasn’t been given access to the archives and Pierre Bergé wasn’t an avid supporter, unlike with the first film mentioned above—the star-studded cast of SL might give YSL a run for its money: Gaspard Ulliel (the face of Chanel’s Bleu fragrance) takes on the role of the protagonist, while award-winning actor Jérémie Renier plays Bergé, Yves’ partner.
The rest of the designer’s tribe includes Léa Seydoux as accessories designer and muse Loulou de la Falaise, model Aymeline Valade as muse Betty Catroux, Louis Garrel as Jacques de Bascher (lover of Yves and former lover of Karl), Amira Casar as long-time studio director Anne-Marie Muñoz, Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi (Carla Bruni’s sister) as client Madame Duzer, and a surprise appearance by Helmut Berger (known for his roles on Dynasty, The Godfather Part III and partner Luchino Visconti’s films), who plays the designer in later life.
Whether you choose to remain neutral or pick a side, the above trailer looks pretty epic and so far seems to have managed just fine without cooperating wih the house itself, now presided over by Hedi Slimane. At least we get tidbits of the making of legendary ready-to-wear and haute couture pieces, from Le Smoking to the sumptuous 1976 Russian Collection.
In the trailer, Ulliel portrays a handsome and charismatic character living a fast life and dealing with success while staying true to his identity, defying fashion’s expectations (being told, in French, “You may complain, but you dress the entire planet, my dear,” to which Ulliel replies, “Well now, I’d like to dress the planet differently”), coping with a tumulthous love triangle and endless exotic nights while battling his illness (“Sometimes I close my eyes and when I open them, I only see heavy and dark things”).
It’s hard to imagine such a revolutionary talent being beaten down by his own demons (“I would like to stop. But I can’t”) and Saint Laurent looks to attempt to portray this inevitably humanizing aspect of a brand’s beginning stags. Perhaps the designer’s work may be put into a single line, said at the end of this trailer: “I’ve eliminated competition. That’s my drama.”
WATCH MARK PELLINGTON’S NEWEST TOUR DE FORCE—A CLIP FROM HIS UPCOMING FULL-LENGTH FILM, AND V-FAVORITE CHELSEA WOLFE’S NEWEST MUSIC VIDEO
July 24th, 2014. Chelsea Wolfe isn’t trying to make you feel better. She will, however, allow you to take part in her own catharsis. Her music is often described as dark and emotional, but unlike the goth or post-punk sounds she gets compared to, Wolfe’s songs are so tight, their depth comes from a kind of claustrophobia: songs like “The Waves Have Come” give one the impression she is in a room too small to fit this many parts. “The Waves…” in particular, exorcises a lot. “[It’s about] disaster and the loss of life and love,” she tells V. It’s full, but also almost chaptered, with a clear and defiant rising action—concluding with a drowning out of its own quiet drama.
The video takes the same route as the song itself, starting serenely (an admittedly dangerous move in the world of visual narratives these days) and introducing higher stakes as it moves forward. Described as an excerpt from the full length film Lone, by legendary director Mark Pellington, “The Waves…” doesn’t play by the rules of mainstream music video pacing, which is one reason V decided to premiere it today.
“Most of this video is footage from the first time Mark and I shot together,” says Wolfe. “He had built this dark room full of green ivy and it was just me, the dress from the album cover, a few lights, and him. It was the first time I realized what a director really is. Suddenly he was shouting, guiding me with instructions; emotions; telling me to act as if everything I was singing about—that it was all inside of me and at the same time to act as an observer of these things. He cut it together with found footage of families, intense nature and destruction and created this sort of cathartic journey through it all.”

Supermodel Christy Turlington covers the Fall 2014 issue of biannual magazine Love. An issue dedicated to “obsessive desire and fashion as a seasonal parade of fetish objects,” according to Love’s editor-in-chief Katie Grand .
With white flying hair, dressed a dress by Giles, rings by van Lamsweerde and Matadin the model poses for Dutch duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for the cover of the new issue .
An American Girl as the cover announced transformed beautifully with the help of Love’s fashion director, Panos Yiapanis, hair by James Pecis and makeup by Dick Page . “Panos and I wanted to take [Turlington’s] magnificent beauty and completely cover her up, smothering her in clothing,” said Grand. “Panos’ great talent is to take models and transform them, and he certainly did in his sitting with Inez and Vinoodh.”
The issue includes also shoots by David Sims, Mario Sorrenti, Juergen Teller, Tim Walker and Jamie Hawkesworth featuring Kate Moss, Adriana Lima, Edie Campbell, Raquel Zimmermann but also the newcomers like Binx Walton, Matilda Lowther and Mica Arganaraz.
The iconic Pirelli Calendar since its creation celebrates the female forms. And with its new edition of 2015 it is definitely a celebration of female body in all shapes. From the slim silhouettes of Raquel Zimmermann, Carolyn Murphy, Karen Elson ,stunning Brazilians Adriana Lima and Isabeli Fontana, Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova, who posed for The Cal just a few days after giving birth to her fourth baby, to the curvy supermodel Candice Huffine now there is a strong celebration of women’s curves.
According to Vanity Fair Italy The Cal 2015 which was shot in New York in May has a keyword: fetishism. The look of the twelve models was based on latex corset and bustier, iconographic choices that lead to an erotic fantasy with mixed references to icons, from Brigitte Bardot to Jerry Hall, and sexy stereotypes, from pin-up girl to catwoman, and even a sailor look seemingly innocent, erotically transformed thanks to shiny rubber. Not a strange choice when you think that the stylist of The Cal 2015 is Carine Roitfeld, ex-chief editor of Vogue Paris, famous for her sexualized photoshootings.
But the real novelty of the 42nd edition of the calendar, which will be printed in just 17 thousand copies, weighs almost 90 kg, is over six feet high, has a D cup bra and is called Candice Huffine. For the first time, the project involves a beautiful ‘curvy’ model. In the fashion industry she is already a star, appearing already on the cover of Vogue Italia and several others major fashion magazines .
“I am aware of my diversity. Even when I climb the stairs in a place like this I know that a few of the clothes from the wardrobe will fit. But no one makes me feel uncomfortable about my size. Do not talk about it, do not comment, do not say, “the curvy girl is coming ” . I am like them, with something more that people are ready and want to see. ” Candice said
