To kick off New York fashion week, Lifestyle Mirror and TheCorner.com debuted their new three-part series of editorials and videos, Designers and Their Muses, today. Before they roll out the full series, featuring designers Phillip Lim, Erdem Moralioglu, and Giles Deacon and their respective muses (Lissy Trullie, Sara Moralioglu, and Jessica Gough), Style.com has an exclusive glimpse at what’s ahead. Here, see each designer talk about these ladies who continue to inspire the look and feel of their brands. Insight into what’s in store from these three leading designers in the days to come? Don’t rule it out.
Ann Demeulemeester’s dreaming of a black Christmas. For the holiday season, the designer created a capsule collection of four black pieces, for men and women, in collaboration with the online retailer TheCorner.com; Ann Demeulemeester (thecorner.com), as the collection is known, will go online on November 22.
To celebrate the capsule collection—which consists of a leather and cotton waistcoat, a cotton cashmere tank top, a pair of pants, and a shopper bag, ranging in price from $430 for the top to $1,290 for the waistcoat—Demeulemeester commissioned artist Erik Madigan Heck, who has worked with Kenzo and Mary Katrantzou, to shoot an 8mm short film in Antwerp featuring the collection. “It’s beautiful how a human being brings a garment to life,” Demeulemeester tells Style.com. “The inexplicable mystery and contrast of a man and a woman and how they intrigue. My aim has always been to incorporate authentic feelings in my work. Erik Madigan Heck’s short movie is a beautiful expression of this.” For his part, Heck described the film earlier this year in conversation with Style.com. “I’m in love with it,” he said at the time. “It’s very blown out, and the models look like angels appearing and disappearing.” The film premieres exclusively below on Style.com.
Menswear takes the stage today in London for LFW’s dedicated Man Day. And few better places for it. “The menswear scene in London has exploded in the past few years,” says Style.com’s Tim Blanks, and now in association with www.thecorner.com and the British Fashion Council, he’s working to support some of the rising stars. Tomorrow, thecorner.com launches a mini-store online retail space to showcase designs from four emerging Brit menswear talents: Christopher Raeburn, J.W. Anderson, Christopher Shannon, and James Long. In this Style.com exclusive video, Tim Blanks introduces a few of the guys to know.
