Japan Fashion Week Canceled, Sam Taylor-Wood Sits For Louis Vuitton, And More…


Japan Fashion Week, which had been planned for March 21 to 25, has been canceled, following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that have struck the nation. [WWD]

Louis Vuitton is preparing to unveil its new “Double Exposure” campaign, where sitters are photographed using the mercurial collodion process, which requires them to hold a pose for 12 full seconds. Its first star is a woman more used to being on the other side of the camera: photographer/filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood (left). [;Vogue U.K.]

Speaking of campaign stars, Mugler’s got its first one, too: Much-tattooed Canadian Rick Genest (a.k.a. Zombie Boy), who stars in the label’s first men’s ads, shot by Mariano Vivanco and styled by creative director Nicola Formichetti. [Nicola Formichetti]

And Vena Cava’s fans can now get their VC fix faster: Design duo Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai have just debuted their e-commerce shop at [Vena Cava]


Mugler In Motion


At last night’s Mugler show in Paris, house creative director Nicola Formichetti screened a video of his muse—no, not Gaga—Rico, the epically tattooed human skeleton. Working in collaboration with Mariano Vivanco, Formichetti has been teasing the world with stills for days, but the real thing hits the Web today at 12 p.m. EST. Odds are good it’ll be the a hot topic on the weekend party circuit (and, sans doute, the talk of Twitter). Curious? See the collection shots here on [link to review], then head over to at 12 p.m. EST to check it out.

debauchery, darling


Though most of the British fashion world was at Downing Street last night, the hipster contingent was in East London, doffing their trilbies to Mariano Vivanco at the launch of his new book of photography Ninetyfive Chapel Market. There to cast an eye over the display of 25 soulful faces and impressive physiques were bright young artist Hugo Dalton and photographer Nicola Formichetti. After a stop for dinner at Shoreditch House, the party moved on to Hoxton Bar and Grill, where Vivanco led the eighties moves on the dance floor, Ponystep’s Richard Mortimer at his side. “It’s a wonderful, happy night,” Vivanco exclaimed to anyone within earshot. Or as another reveller put it, “It’s debauched, darling, but frightfully fun.”
