Chanel designer Florence Welch inspired by Tamara de Lempicka

Florence teams up with Karl Lagerfeld for vinyl single cover

The Chanel designer photographs his S/S’12 muse for a very special limited edition single

He’s at it again! As we mentioned yesterday, Karl Lagerfeld just can’t find enough projects to keep himself busy. He’s turned his hand to photography to capture Florence Welch (his muse for his Chanel S/S’12 collection) in a unique series of portraits that are exclusive to limited edition vinyl releases of the new single ‘Shake it Out’ from Florence + the Machine.

The cover image shows Florence reclining against a pale landscape in the ivory lace dress she wore to close the Chanel S/S’12 show show with Karl himself. Her dramatic scarlet hair and pale skin lend a Thirties feel to the image; it seems to reflect the work of iconic female artist Tamara de Lempicka, who famously painted defiantly strong portraits of women. Highly appropriate for Florence, who is known for her free-spirited, eccentric sense of style which often recalls women of the past.

She says: "The pictures are based on Tamara Lempicka's work, as both myself and Karl are huge fans."

Madonna inspired by Tamara de Lempicka for Louis Vuitton

Madonna is Marc Jacobs' Louis Vuitton muse

Madonna has made her follow-up appearance for Louis Vuitton as the star of the luxury fashion label’s forthcoming autumn/winter campaign.

It is the second time the singer has featured as the star of the luxury luggage and fashion label's advertising campaign. Photographed by Steven Meisel and art directed by the designer, Marc Jacobs, Madonna is seen as a sumptuous, decadent heroine, reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood.

The photographs were inspired by the photographs of the Surrealist, Man Ray, who perfected the technique of solarisation, while the rich backgrounds and lush draperies were based upon the works of Tamara de Lempicka, the Polish Art deco painter.

Madonna is seen wearing the short, ruffled silk puffballs, de luxe accessories and thigh-high boots which were a feature of Jacobs’ eclectic and extravagant autumn/winter catwalk show for Louis Vuitton in Paris in March. And, in a reprise of her critically-acclaimed appearance at the Costume Institute Gala at The Met in New York in May, the singer is also wearing the ironic “bunny ear” headpieces which the London-based milliner, Stephen Jones designed for the collection.

“After the fun we had with the spring/summer campaign, and the amazing reaction to it, all of us – Madonna, Steven and myself – were eager to get back together for fall/winter”, said Marc Jacobs.

“While the two campaigns look very different, there is also a unity about them, so it now feels like we have completed both parts of the story.”

Armani - Une "femme bleue" rétro pour le couturier

Ce n'est plus un secret, la jolie Elisa Sednaoui, actrice et mannequin, incarne l'image de la campagne Printemps-Été prochain d'Armani. Une "femme bleue" divine.

La nouvelle avait bousculé la planète mode, propulsant ainsi Elisa Sednaoui, héroïne de Bus Palladium et déjà muse Chanel, au rang d'égérie internationale: le couturier Giorgio Armani a jeté son dévolu sur la moue mutine de Miss Sednaoui, sa silhouette parfaite et ses traits fins.Une fashion évolution logique pour la belle qui avait commencé en tant que mannequin, usant sans soucis de ses charmes naturels.

La nouvelle campagne de Giorgio Armani s'intitule La Femme Bleue, et les premiers clichés shootés par Nick Knight dévoilent une Elisa Sednaoui sublime et graphique, jouant de la lumière et des effets flous de la photographie.
 
Un cliché qui ouvre une campagne délicieusement rétro, puisant son inspiration dans le répertoire esthétique et stylistique des années 1930. Veste pour femme à double rangée de boutonnages, manchettes, fluidité des matières et bleu nuit à tendance monochrome, bibi ou petite coupe courte, l'esprit de la collection revisite avec délice la mode passée. L'autre photographie mise sur une campagne plus orientaliste, décolleté plongeant et turban enroulé autour de la tête, pour un effet femme fatale néo-romantique.
 
Ces photos rappellent l'esthétique des tableaux de Tamara Lempicka, célèbre peintre art déco, qui comme Armani, aimait le luxe et la modernité, et surtout, les modèles d'une grande sensualité, comme Elisa. Retrouvez tous les clichés d'une certaine idée de l'élégance à l'italienne dès février prochain.
