Proenza Schouler sent its Fall ’13 campaign and film our way today, and, lensed by David Sims, the imagery lends an eerie serenity to Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez’s grown-up—and often severe—collection. The video and ads feature Russian beauty Sasha Pivovarova, who’s shown posing through hazy, vintage tints, or seemingly gliding through a starry cosmos. There’s also a surprise appearance from a white cockatoo, which was a particularly nice touch. Watch the short’s debut (above) and take a peek at the new campaign (below) exclusively on Style.com.
There wasn’t anything inherently minimal about the metallic leather judo socks and Japanese floral-print furs, bags and frocks in Miuccia Prada’s Spring 2013 collection. But simplicity—extreme simplicity—is precisely the concept behind the house’s Spring campaign, which debuts today exclusively on Style.com. Featuring some of our favorite women—like Eva Herzigova, Sasha Pivovarova, Amber Valletta, Raquel Zimmermann and more—the images, shot by Steven Meisel, do away with frills and thrills, letting Prada’s strong Spring stars (and clothes) shine.
Twenty years ago, Kelly Klein released her first Pools tome, a tribute to the swimming pools around the world in all their various forms. Klein, the ex-wife of Calvin Klein, is back again with a new set of iconic images from some of fashion’s finest photographers, including Steven Meisel, Juergen Teller, and Theo Wenner, in her follow-up book, Pools: Reflections, out this month. “I felt enough time had passed to do the sequel,” Klein tells Style.com. “I’m a bit obsessed with the architecture of pools and the water—swimming is such a form of relaxation for me.” This latest rendition combines pools with fashion, architecture, sculpture, and art. From a Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott photo of a naked Sasha Pivovarova to a Patrick Demarchelier photo of two lovers underwater, this edition is certainly sexed up from the last. One of the book’s highlights is a Bruce Weber photo, featured on a limited-edition ATM T-shirt ($85) on sale at Barneys. (ATM designer Anthony Thomas Melillo also just launched cashmere styles of his namesake label exclusively at Barneys earlier this month.) “I choose the guy and girl underwater photo by Bruce Weber because of how sensual it is,” Klein explains. “You feel what it’s like to be floating underwater with someone—it’s sexy.” There’s also a limited-edition ATM T-shirt being sold by ACRIA (all profits from the book are being donated to the organization). Here, the Weber shirt makes its debut on Style.com before this evening’s private book party at the Barneys New York store.
It’s a good day for Louis Vuitton. For the seventh year in a row, the label helmed by Marc Jacobs (pictured) has been named the most valuable luxury brand in the world. According to Millward Brown Optimor’s 2012 Top 100 BrandZ study, LV is worth $25.9 billion, which accounts for approximately one third of LVMH’s market capitalization. [Telegraph]
Just a few days after posting an intimate topless photo of her very-pregnant body, Sasha Pivovarova has taken to Twitter again, sharing the first picture of her newborn baby girl, Mia Isis. The 27-year-old model gave birth to her first child with husband photographer Igor Vishnyakov last week, and was showered with congratulatory messages from her 14,454 followers. [Telegraph]
Architect Greg Lynn is taking his talent from buildings to baubles. Lynn, who worked with Nadja Swarovski on an installation in 2009 at Design Miami, has now created a jewelry collection for the Atelier. Named after his favorite beaches, Pescador, Zuma, Dana, and Catalina, the range includes earrings, bracelets, rings, and necklaces that echo sea creatures such as periwinkles and barnacles. [T]
J.Crew is under fire on the Web today for its latest Bali-themed catalog. The preppy American brand packed up its summer looks and took them to Bali, where it enlisted local Balinese children to pose alongside models in traditional religious ensembles. While some are calling it misguided, it should be noted that the catalog includes details about Balinese tradition and culture. [Huff Po]
