the

company blog is same style as the website. It is very visual as they mostly post images, I think this is very effective as I am very visual myself.


Sass and Bide Photo-shoots The models used in Sass and Bides photo shoots are themselves. The styling is done by themselves. The location of the photo shoots are at the homes of Sass and Bide and also in a studio where they photograph the garments as flats and on the body of a model. The overall look of the D.I.Y photo shoots are quirky and well executed, this shows us how the garments would look in everyday life. The overall look of the studio images are generic, but it gets across what they want to sell.

Lookbook


A Lookbook is set of photographs displaying a fashion designer's new collection, assembled for marketing purposes. As far as this goes Sass and Bides Lookbook is simple and clean looking but also creative and eyecatching. The use of a white background brings everything else in the photo-shoot come to light and we then direct ourselves at whatever else is going on. They have used many props in their Lookbook and personally I think this works really well with their general theme.

Lanvin Photo-shoots


Lanvin may be the oldest fashion house in Paris, but it has also managed to remain one of the most relevant. Through many years and many designers, it has stayed true to the vision of its founder, Madame Jeanne Lanvin, always valuing fine craftsmanship and impeccable ornamentation above all else. As the unusually domestic logo of the brand—a mother and child, holding hands—underscores so poetically, Lanvin has always been a family affair. Jeanne Lanvin was born into a household of modest means, one of eleven children, in 1867. She took her first job in fashion at thirteen, making and delivering hats for the milliner Suzanne Talbot. A decade later, she opened her own first hat boutique, in Paris, in 1889. She branched into clothing design when she began creating beautifully adorned dresses for her young daughter, Marie-Blanche. Grown women were charmed by little Marie-Blanche’s outfits and requested the designs for themselves. With no financial backing, a sure vision, and much hard work, Lanvin became one of the most sought after couturiers of her day. Mme Lanvin is credited with blurring the lines between women’s and children’s fashions, introducing a more youthful aesthetic in womenswear. She also was among the pioneers of the idea that a woman could create a personal style that would carry her throughout her life—instead of conforming to the day’s strictures regarding the proper attire of a young lady, bride, wife, mother, or grandmother. Her patterns were simple, but embellished intricately with embroidery, appliques, ribbons, and sunbursts. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, the house turned out “robes de style,” ornamental dresses made in silk taffeta, velvet, chiffon, lace, and other rich fabrics, with pleated skirts and wide necklines. The atelier was visited by many prominent clients, including the actresses Marlene Dietrich and Mary Pickford, the writer Louise de Vilmorin, and the queens of Romania and Italy. Said her nephew Yves Lanvin, “She was a lucky woman. She went from success to success in the course of a career that proceeded without a hitch.”


The aesthetic of the Lanvin collections was deeply influenced by the visual arts. Jeanne Lanvin had an extensive collection of paintings in her apartment at 16 rue Barbet-de-Jouy; she favored the work of Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, Eugène Boudin, and Edouard Vuillard. In no small part thanks to the chic interiors of her home, the Lanvin name became nearly as well known for impeccable home-decor products as for coveted womenswear. (Some of the rooms of her apartment were later re-created at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.) A good half-century before it became a necessary business model in the fashion industry, Lanvin capitalized on her brand by disseminating it even further, through a gamut of sidelines. Early on, she expanded into fragrance, lingerie, sportswear, accessories, fur, and menswear. Lanvin’s use of color also became a signature. On a trip to Florence, she saw a Fra Angelico fresco, and its “quattrocento blue” would become a staple in her work; the shade will be known as “Lanvin blue.” When Jeanne Lanvin died in 1946, her daugher, Marie-Blanche, took over both the creative and business ends of the company; she was in charge until 1950. After that, for about three decades, a succession of designers put their oar in, including Maryll Lanvin, who was chief designer for several years in the mid1980s (she was the wife of Jeanne’s grand-nephew) and Claude Montana, who had a go in the early 1990s. The house had been in decline for a good decade or more when the Chinese entrepreneur Shaw-Lan Wang bought it and hired Alber Elbaz, a gifted and refined designer who had honed his skills at Yves Saint Laurent, Guy Laroche, and Geoffrey Beene. Picking up the threads of Mme Lanvin’s legacy, Elbaz has shown fine Grecian draping, painstaking tailoring, and lavish embroidery—among mounds of tulle and silk —to much critical acclaim. By 2004, Lanvin had gained a notable following of smartly sexy actresses and models, including Kate Moss, Sofia Coppola, Chloë Sevigny, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Sevigny, a longtime fan, has called the new Lanvin “very elegant, very classy, very ladylike. It will stand the test of time more than any other collection right now. You could wear it today or in 60 years.” Elbaz initially ran the company—as Madame did—on an intimate scale. “He’s like a good film director who realizes he shouldn’t go to Hollywood,” said Alexandre de Betak, who works on Lanvin’s runway shows, in an interview with Vogue’s Sally Singer. “He’s better as an independent.” But as commerce at large has shifted to a more global model, so, too, has the house of Lanvin. The company now operates stores in several cities in the United States, as well as numerous international locations. In 2010, Elbaz partnered with the fast-fashion retailer H&M to do a capsule line; he won the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s International Designer of the Year award for that collaboration. And in 2005, he spoke to Vogue about maintaining a certain mystique in a multimedia world: “We’re not trendmakers or dictators anymore,” he said. “You could get away with that when fashion had more mystery. But now I can see my own show four hours later on the Internet, and zoom in and out of every detail. Now there’s only reality left. And that’s what you have to work with.”


Project Proposal Marc Jacobs (born April 9, 1963) is an American fashion designer. He is the head designer for Marc Jacobs, as well as Marc by Marc Jacobs, a diffusion line, with over 200 retail stores in 80 countries. He was the creative director of the French design house Louis Vuitton from 1997 to 2013. Jacobs was on Time magazine's "2010 Time 100" list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and ranked number 14 on Out magazine's 2012 list of "50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America". My specific strengths reside in C.A.D and drawing skills, I will combine these to create a look-book and photo-shoots. My professional aspirations are somewhat vague, I really enjoy creative based work so this would include drawing, C.A.D based work, design etc. a job based on any of these subjects would be great for me. At age 15, Jacobs worked as a stockboy at Charivari, a now-defunct avant-garde clothing boutique in New York City. While still at Parsons, Jacobs designed and sold his first line of hand-knit sweaters. He also designed his first collection for Reuben Thomas, Inc., under the Sketchbook label. With Robert Duffy, Jacobs' creative collaborator, and business partner since the mid-1980s, he formed Jacobs Duffy Designs Inc. In the fall of 1993, Jacobs Duffy Designs Inc. launched their own licensing and design company: Marc Jacobs International Company, L.P. In 1994, Jacobs produced his first full collection of menswear. In 1997, Jacobs was appointed Louis Vuitton's creative director, where he created the company's first ready-to-wear clothing line. Jacobs has collaborated with many popular artists for his Louis Vuitton collections, including Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami and most recently American artist Richard Prince and rapper Kanye West. I have decided to create neckerchiefs for my chosen company Marc Jacobs, I have seen a couple in his photo-shoots and they really stood out to me but there wasn’t that many, so this is where the thought came to me. I thought it looked really edgy and chic so immediately I wanted to make a couple of my own. Originally I also wanted to create headbands to accompany the neckerchiefs as I thought I would have more diverse accessories and more to choose from. When looking over my designs I realised that they wouldn’t be Marc Jacob’s style so I decided to discard them. I will use Photoshop and Illustrator to create my look-book and edit my photo-shoots. I will use illustrator to create my range plan for my chosen accessory, creating a working sketch. Photoshop will be used to edit all my images and also to make my mood boards and range plan. Some techniques I will be using include layer mask, layering, and opacity changing, magic wand tool.


I need to improve my analytical skills, this will be the challenge I will face further into the brief. To overcome this I will write down my thoughts while I am editing for example, so then there is nothing else for me to do.

Versace Pre-Fall 2014

Key Themes

The look: sexed-up sports glamour

Donatella Versace continues her reign of sexed-up glamour, with sports references and masculine influences coming to the fore for pre-fall 2014. The collection features a number of contrasts throughout, such as baby pink with black, masculine tweed coats worn over silk jersey dresses and formalwear dressed down with sports blousons.

Silhouette: slim, waisted with occasional volume. Colour: the palette is dominated by black, white, slate grey with flashes of soft baby pink, mint and punctuating the collection Key items: Donatella continued to be on a roll as she

ivory and lilac managed to

reinvent the rock 'n' roll goddess for another season,

but for pre-

and lilac infiltrate the otherwise dark palette. Draped

dresses sit mid-thigh but are hardened with boxy

take on eveningwear dressing. Leather A-line skirts keep the look casual, teamed with printed silk blousons, couture sweat tops or silk tees. Boxy outerwear injects volume and the pink coat remains a key item going forward, while slate grey tweeds introduce a masculine element


Fabric & knit: silk jersey, tweeds, minks, leather, astrakhan, creased silk, punched leather Print & pattern: signature house prints, leopard prints Details & trims: diamond studs, studded collars, asymmetric zippers, box pleats, metallic chain trims, astrakhan collars, contrast leather sleeves Footwear: black pointed court shoes with gold pyramid studding, over-the-knee boots with leather fringing and cutout detail in leather, pony skin and suede Accessories: leather belts with bold triangular plaques with medusa head detail, black leather duffel bags, knitted beanies with sequin and beading appliqué, snakeskin ladylike handbags, boxy shoppers with leather fringing.

WGSN ANALYSIS • Strong new items such as the mini-duffle bag, the slim cat'seye sunglasses and the luxe sports cap reinforce the key themes for the season, inspired by the 1970s, a contemporary take on romantic aesthetics and a sophisticated look at the evolving sports direction Although bright tones such as solar yellow and orange peel bring a fresh zingy update to accessories collections, the new palette of neutrals is an important development for colour. Shades such as dusty nude, pale pastels and sand dollar are a contemporary option for staple accessories items This season the materials are essential to the newness of designs. Textural exotics and flat matt leather are used in simple designs while fur and feathers and statement gemstones offer a more flamboyant alternative for directional and occassion items • Oversized gemstone and 3D floral embellishments are important new detail trends that have huge commercial appeal this season. Beading, sequin and embroidery decoration are also big news, particularly in monotone applications and as a detail on pared-back silhouettes. As part of the 1970s trend, we see fringe trim return as an interesting detail for leathers goods that is also mirrored in footwear. ITEMS Chanel spring/summer 2014
