Six thousand applications later, Ford Models and V Magazine‘s V A Model Search contest has yielded a winner: one Lea Groesland from Norway. Finally, Siri Tollerød will have someone to speak to in her own tongue! If past winner Amanda Laine’s success is anything to go by (she booked Prada, Marni, and Balenciaga her first season out), Lea will be a household name by October 2009.
Marni‘s pre-fall muse is as wide-eyed and winsome as they come. She’s also a little chilly. Lucky for her she’s got a nifty Marni coat to snuggle into while she traverses a snowy, rocky terrain in search of love. Sounds like your average promo video, right? Kind of. At its showroom in Milan yesterday, Marni gave Style.com an exclusive look at its Winter Edition wares; we also caught a charming stop-motion animated short from filmmaker Rohan Wadham. Check back here for all the pre-fall looks, and click for the clip of Marni’s unusual muse.
If you weren’t among the devoted who queued up for the polka-dot-heavy Comme des Garçons capsule collection for H&M, you can still get the look: A flurry of spots are headed to stores come spring (click for slideshow). “People are investing in key pieces now,” says Adam Lippes, who featured the print in his latest ADAM collection. “Polka dots are classic, but they’ve been given a fresh twist.” There were cheery retro circles of all sizes at Michael Kors, Marni’s Consuelo Castiglioni turned the pattern into lace skirts, and Giles Deacon offered smudged spots on shift dresses. It’s time to get happy, designers seem to be saying. We’re inclined to agree—here’s to optimism in ’09. Click here to get your dot on.
While statement-making pants are big news for spring, some designers clearly feel that less is more. Peter Som’s peekaboo panties matched an otherwise conservative shirtdress, and the bottoms at Hermès were almost long enough to qualify as running shorts—almost. On other runways, models stalked out in glorified underwear and not much else (click for slideshow). A few adventurous It girls have taken this trend to the streets, or at least the short strip of sidewalk that separates town car from nightclub entrance. Our question to you: Would you be seen like this in public? Click here to get a leg up on the trend, then bare all below.
Jelly flats were a designer must-have this summer, with Chanel, Givenchy, and Marc by Marc all having fun with the eighties staple. Looking ahead to fall, the flat part is gone but the jelly remains in Marni’s PVC Mary Jane. A classic, with a fun twist. Marni PVC Mary Janes, $435, available at Marni, NYC, (212) 343-3912.
