Into the Wild: The Fashion Set Endorses Glamping

-------

81414_Now_Trending_Glamping_blogWith the Spring ’15 shows about to barrel into town, we’re planning a restorative escape to the country. Nothing too out-there, mind you. We like to rough it without looking rough around the edges. We glamp, not camp (even if we’re still not sure glamp is a real word). Conveniently, there’s been no shortage of outdoorsy style inspiration, what with the summer’s never-ending music festival circuit. Back in June, Glastonbury found It Brits like Edie Campbell and Suki Waterhouse striking poses in utilitarian threads and rubber Wellies. And just last weekend, Mulberry and co. set up their tents at the Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire to debut Cara Delevingne’s new bags for the brand. Many of the recent menswear and Resort collections, meanwhile, seemed ready-made for high-end hiking trips and woodsy bonfire gatherings. Canvas parkas and waterproof Mackintoshes turned up at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Julien David. And J.W. Anderson made an impression at Loewe with a debut collection of sturdy cuffed jeans and hardworking leather accessories photographed by Jamie Hawkesworth on rocky terrain outside Cadiz, Spain.

Here, what to wear on your next, ahem, glamping trip.

Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevingne Are Burberry’s Fall Faces

Burberry

The Fall campaigns are slowly rolling out, and tonight we can reveal that Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevigne are the headlining faces of the Fall ’14 Burberry campaign. Delevingne, a Burberry ad vet (her first campaign for the house was Spring 2011), flashes her signature smile in the Mario Testino-lensed snaps, while Waterhouse, who’s making her ready-to-wear campaign debut, strikes a more pensive pose in the brand’s artisanal Fall wares. “It’s such a dream come true to be part of this Burberry campaign!” Waterhouse told Style.com. “A special moment that I’ll always remember.” We’d bet up-and-coming male model Oli Green, who has previously walked in Burberry Prorsum shows, won’t soon forget his time on set working with the British beauties, either. Have a first look at the campaign here, exclusively on Style.com.

Dominic Jones Shows His Softer Side

Dom Jones

Label: Dominic Jones

Need to Know: Dominic Jones unveiled his tenth collection of costume jewelry during his London fashion week presentation this weekend. The five-time NewGen winner’s Fall ’14 affair surprised attendees with a soft, new aesthetic, as well as a performance by his longtime friends Emma Chitty and Jon Jackson. Lit by one spotlight, Chitty—who was dressed in a floor-length lace dress and Jones’ new baubles—slowly danced to an electronic guitar, introducing the audience to the hypnotic beauty of Jones’ Fall ’14 inspiration: the orchid.

Having launched in 2009 with business partner Alice Dellal, Jones’ range is best known for its signature, large-scale, and often dark, aggressive pieces. This season, however, he revealed his lighter side. The designer told us that he views the orchid, his latest muse, not as a girly or meek plant but as a mystical, strong, and beautiful flower. This is precisely what he wanted to communicate through his collection. Detailed images of his work are offered in the Fall lookbook (above), which stars Suki Waterhouse, Dellal, and Ellie Rowsell. Jones’ personal favorite Fall wares are the smallest, including delicate orchid earrings, rings, and pendants.

He Says: “Flowers are not something you would associate with me, but orchids fascinate me very much. The symmetry of the blossom and its individuality are beautiful, and it’s interesting that orchids share a similar growth pattern with the human face.”

Where to Find It: Net-a-Porter, Liberty, Joseph, Harvey Nichols, and 10 Corso Como, among others.

Insta-Gratification

-------

In the age of Instagram, all it takes is a smartphone to achieve a photo finish, be it filtered or #nofilter-ed. That’s why Style.com’s social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, is rounding up our favorite snaps and bringing them into focus. See below for today’s top shots.

Friday, January 31

In celebration of its #ArtMatters window installation, Bergdorf Goodman has surrendered its account to the visual masters behind the #BGWindows.

It’s hard to pick just one. Riccardo Tisci went on a sharing spree, uploading new photos of Erykah Badu, the face of Givenchy’s Spring ’14 ads.

If our flooded e-mail inboxes weren’t an indication, this photo from the MBFW account reminds us that fashion week is just a few days away.

Cheers to the weekend. Make this one count.

And let us say, Amen. Continue Reading “Insta-Gratification” »

Dreaming Of An Alber Christmas

-------

Christmas at Claridge’s is fairy-tale stuff, on the list of “things to do before I die” for many. Add Lanvin to the package and the fantasy goes into overdrive. That’s what it was last night at the cozy soirée hosted by Alber Elbaz to unveil his new Christmas tree for the storied hotel.

Elbaz takes over the job from John Galliano, who had the gig two years running. And this was no new age fantasy extravaganza as Galliano delivered before. Alber’s homier tree included miniature Lanvin boxes tied in navy ribbons, reindeers, and jewel-colored streamers, but the highlights were the top and bottom. Perched at the tip was a doll version of the designer himself; at the bottom, poupées dressed up as concierge staff and customers of Claridge’s. It was a nod by Mr. Elbaz to his longstanding patronage at the hotel.

The English old and new guard who gathered to sample the ham tarts and mulled wine included Sir Paul Smith, Gordon Ramsay, and Nicky Haslam, while the younger set (mostly dressed in Lanvin) included Tallulah Harlech, model of the moment Suki Waterhouse, and Jade Jagger’s daughter, Amba Jackson. All this while Mike Figgis’ girlfriend, Rosey Chan, performed Ravel and Bach on the piano—with one hand tied around her back.

As for Elbar’s Christmas wish? “Maybe I will go to Morocco, maybe India, we shall see,” he said. “Right now, though, a good rest in a warm climate will be a great Christmas gift to myself.”
