Harrods’ Disney Christmas

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Further to yesterday’s Chanel post on the subject of the ‘Disneyfication’ of luxury retail;  I hear that Harrods will be Disney-themed this Christmas. Swarovski was the brand partner last year and this year promises another fantasy-filled extravaganza beyond our wildest dreams. Think windows displaying one-off gowns for Disney princesses by the likes of Valentino and Versace, a fourth-floor Disney pop-up boutique, plus a special focus on Disney’s Cinderella to tie in with the global high-def launch of the animated Cinderella on Blueray.

In our modern cross-pollinating world, this is the perfect way for film, fashion and retail to collide to benefit all parties. (And somewhere in the mix there must be a magazine media partner ready and waiting with an Aurasma app to tie it all together. Harper’s Bazaar perhaps?) Disney has upped its fashion collabs considerably recently. I loved the Mawi jewellery, and the Cinderella Louboutins sound promising. Of course, I’m still holding out for a Louis Vuitton Disney collab. It’s got to happen soon, hasn’t it?

Angelo Pennetta and Katie Grand’s video for Louis Vuitton featuring Yayoi Kusama’s colourful spot collection is the cutest thing ever. Poor Anais Pouliot and Romee Strijd must have been exhausted by the end of filming…

3D printing in fashion: Nike and Ross Barber

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I’ve been researching 3D printing in fashion for a few weeks. Most commonly used for prototyping in industrial design, Nike has started using it for prototyping its fashion sportswear and LCF graduate Ross Barber used it to make hybrid leather-nylon shoes. When I try to explain 3D printing to people, they (understandably) have no idea what I’m talking about. These videos explain it better…

I really need to hurry up and get my hands on the Thakoon for Nars nail collection. Inspired by Indian festivals (when is Tim Walker going to do a Holi-themed shoot?), there are six of these searing bright colours to try. (Hmmm, in the UK the red is mysteriously missing…) [EDIT: OK Hafsa just pointed out in the comments that the red is exclusive to the Nars site. Clever!] Continue reading

Own the Moonrise Kingdom scout suit and raise money for charity

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


If you’ve seen Moonrise Kingdom, you’ll know one of the best things about it is the fantastic costume design by Kasia Walicka Maimone. As a fan of scout style, I just adored the details of the scout outfits, from the scarves to the patches on the shirts, to Sam’s omnipresent brooch and raccoon tail. Anyway, Sam’s outfit is up for grabs in an online auction taking place between now and June 13th. All proceeds go to Variety New York, to help transform the lives of children through the arts. Click here to bid.

 

Wes Anderson on creativity, collaboration and independence

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Enjoyed this piece on Wes Anderson in the Wall Street Journal magazine. I love the guy and his films but don’t really know much about him. This gives a look into his mindset and thoughts on creativity and film making. I’m seeing Moonrise Kingdom tomorrow…
