Before “designer collaboration” became fashion’s second-most frequently dropped phrase (immediately following “pop-up shop,” by our count), Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos were doing just that—calling up friends and fans and working with them on limited-edition items in their ultra-soft cashmere. It helps that the designers have more catholic tastes than most. Over the course of their guest designers series, they worked with everyone from Carine Roitfeld to architect Richard Meier to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, all of whom waxed philosophic about the sweaters of their dreams and helped to make them a reality. Lutz & Patmos is shutting up shop, sad to say—Patmos will continue on as M. Patmos, as well as designing the more contemporary Leroy & Perry collections, and Lutz will pursue other projects—but before they go, they’ve rounded up the collabs of years past, which are now on sale at their e-commerce site. From Roitfeld’s (modeled, top left, by the editrix herself, and son Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld) to Christy Turlington’s (top right, inspired by the yogic lotus flower), Fabien Baron’s (top left), and Inez van Lamsweerde’s (top right), they’re available now for, potentially, the last time ever. Shop brisk—and click below for pieces by Jane Birkin, and Natalia Vodianova. Continue Reading “Lutz & Patmos, With A Little Help From Their Friends” »
Alexander Wang assembled a crack team for his first-ever women’s ready-to-wear campaign video for his Wall Street-inspired Fall collection, which premieres on his Web site and ours, among others, today. Craig McDean was behind the camera, Fabien Baron was in the creative director’s seat, and Karl Templer styled. Orlando Pita and Mark Carrasquillo did Abbey Lee Kershaw’s hair and makeup. The setting, too—a now deserted New York City hotel—is compelling. “We’re always striving to communicate the frame of mind behind the collection, whether it’s through our show or imagery, but this season we got to delve much deeper,” Wang told us. “And with the help of an incredibly gifted team—Abbey, Craig, Fabien, and Karl—my inspiration for Fall ’10 unfolds in a raw and visually arresting dreamscape.” It doesn’t look like Wall Street to us, but we’re with him re: “raw and visually arresting.” Enjoy.
This week, Alexander Wang launches his first ever video campaign (pictured), starring Abbey Lee Kershaw and lensed by Craig McDean. Karl Templer and Fabien Baron styled and creative-directed the spot, which will launch right here on Style.com this Wednesday at noon EST—so stay tuned. [WWD]
