Considering the First Lady wore Reed Krakoff not once but twice during the inauguration, the designer has been at the center of MObama Mania all week. But today, we’d like to take a respite from the patriotic props to discuss Krakoff’s Spring ’13 film. To accompany his self-shot campaign, the designer released a moody short (this time around, he served as creative director) starring Laetitia Casta (the model, who Krakoff described as the “ideal reflection” of his woman, also features in his Spring images). Between the red haze that flashes across the screen, Casta’s “come hither if you dare” gaze, and eerie background tunes (performed by Walls and remixed by Holy Other), the film shows Krakoff’s minimal, feminine Spring wares in an entirely new light. The designer’s heady film debuts exclusively on Style.com (above), and we have to say, there’s something alluring about Krakoff’s walk on the dark side.
From Michelle Obama wearing his jacquard coat on Monday at the 57th Presidential Inauguration to the debut of his latest menswear collection in Paris last Sunday, Thom Browne’s name is on everyone’s lips. And it looks like we won’t stop talking about him anytime soon. Today, WWD revealed that Browne will be awarded Pratt’s Fashion Visionary Award during a ceremony at the Top of the Standard on April 25. And he’s in good company, considering Narciso Rodriguez, Diane von Furstenberg, and Catherine Malandrino are all former honorees. The event will also serve as a stage for Pratt’s senior fashion students to reveal their collections—who knows, maybe a future MObama favorite will be in the bunch.
