EXCLUSIVE: Matches Fashion Unveils Its Third Issue of The Style Report

-------

matches-fashion-1Magazines have been telling us where to buy clothes for more than a century, so it was only a matter of time before the roles were reversed and retailers began publishing stories about their favorite editors, models, and trends, too. On September 3, luxury shopping site Matches Fashion will unveil its third issue of The Style Report, its biannual print magazine. Available online and distributed to clients around the world, Eurostar lounges, and five-star hotels, Matches Fashion publishes two issues at a time—one for women and one for men—to cater to both shopping-obsessed markets. An exclusive glimpse at both issues debuts exclusively here.

This time around, women’s topics range from our current obsession with icons of the ’60s and ’70s (penned by Lynn Yaeger) to Linda Rodin’s unique approach to aging. The unconventional cover girl? Caroline de Maigret. The music-producer-slash-model-slash-Karl-Lagerfeld-muse clues us into the timeless appeal of French women just in time for her new book, How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits, to drop.matches-2

Though we do appreciate a girls-only attitude, we like to think we’d be just as interested in the men’s issue. After all, this one features The Hobbit‘s Luke Evans on the cover, an interview with Dior’s Raf Simons, and an in-depth profile of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. To celebrate the launch of both issues, Matches Fashion is asking readers to tweet and Instagram photos of their personal style, tagging #StyleIs, @MATCHESFASHION, and @MATCHES_MAN. The winner will be awarded a weekend of luxury—four nights at a hotel, a $5,000 shopping spree on Matches Fashion, and a $1,000 gift card to Space NK. In case you needed another reason to check their new arrivals page every day.

Below, see the final cover images for The Style Report Issue No. 3 and a behind-the-scenes video of De Maigret’s photo shoot.

Heart of Glass: Baccarat Celebrates 250 Years With a Trio of Love Stories

-------


French crystal manufacturer Baccarat is hosting a couture week blowout this evening. And after 250 years in business, a celebration at Maison Baccarat is certainly in order. To fete the milestone birthday, the company commissioned three short films by directors Sonia Sieff, Joséphine de la Baume, and Chiara Clemente—all of which revolve around a love story. The series, titled “Legendary Stories,” will premiere at the sure-to-be sparkling affair. Sieff’s film, which stars Caroline de Maigret and Thierry Frémont, sees two ex-lovers rekindle their flame while swilling red wine out of brilliant Baccarat glasses. The heady work debuts exclusively here. And don’t forget to check back later today for our complete party report.

An Inside Look at Iris van Herpen’s ANDAM Win

-------

irisIris van Herpen is the winner of the 25th edition of the ANDAM Prize. The announcement was made at a cocktail party at the Hotel France-Amérique this evening in Paris, but some Twitter users were in early on the announcement. A stray Tweet made its way online before the jurors—among them first-time members including chairman and CEO of Kering Fçois-Henri Pinault, Estée Lauder’s John Demsey, Condé Nast France president Xavier Romatet, and Caroline de Maigret—adjourned for the day.

In her second year competing for the prize, Van Herpen beat out Fausto Puglisi (who in addition to his own line also creative directs Emanuel Ungaro), Yiqing Yin, Rad Hourani, Steven Tai, Jean-Paul Lespagnard, and the Études Studios trio. The Dutch 29-year-old will receive 250,000 euros and mentorship from Pinault. “It was a real privilege [to participate],” Pinault told Style.com. “The ANDAM Grand Prix is so important for the promotion of young designers in Paris. I didn’t expect this level of maturity, frankly. It was really an honor.” He went on: “I will be mentoring Iris for two seasons, and I intend to give her access to any of our brands that will help her in her project. There’s a great deal of opportunity for her.”

Van Herpen caused a mini-sensation at her first-ever ready-to-wear show for Fall ’14 last March when she suspended three models in shrink-wrapped plastic garbage bags in what she described as commentary on the commodification of the human body. Innovation is at the heart of Van Herpen’s work, and it was a key factor in her win today (as a jury member myself, I can vouch for that). “Until now, I’ve been focusing on couture to give myself the freedom and time to work on new materials and new production methods,” she said, after accepting the prize from Pinault and ANDAM’s Nathalie Dufour. “But I really feel like [my experiments] are ready to translate into the ready-to-wear now.”

Coperni’s Sébastien Meyer and Arnaud Vaillant, who claimed Nicolas Ghesquière and J.W. Anderson as their designer icons, won the 75,000 euro First Collection prize. Meyer, the designer half of the duo, is already a step ahead of some of the competitors in today’s Grand Prize category. He has a business partner in Vaillant. There’s no substitute for creativity. But, pointed out jury member Federico Marchetti of The Corner, “a business partner is something every designer needs.”

Marc’s Louis Vuitton Farewell, Part 2

-------

Sofia Coppola, Catherine Deneuve and Edie Campbell for Louis Vuitton

For those who didn’t get their fill after Marc Jacobs’ decadent, retrospective farewell show in October, the designer today presented a bonus swan song for Louis Vuitton: the Spring ’14 campaign. Lensed by Steven Meisel, the ads pay tribute to Jacobs’ Vuitton muses, including Catherine Deneuve, Sofia Coppola, Caroline de Maigret, Gisele Bündchen, Edie Campbell, and Fan Bingbing. They may have been Jacobs’ inspirations, but we have a feeling these leading ladies will stay in the Vuitton family under Nicolas Ghesquière’s reign.
