‘Kids’ Director Larry Clark Lends His Eye to Dior

For more than two decades, the work of the photographer and film director Larry Clark has been a favorite of fashion designers. While putting together his spring 2017 men’s wear collection, Kris Van Assche, the artistic director of Dior Homme, turned to Mr. Clark’s stylized images of young people on the fringes of society as a source of inspiration.

“Larry Clark is a major reference point,” Mr. Van Assche said, “and it is therefore only normal that I had pictures of him and his work all over my mood boards.”

Now Mr. Van Assche has gone one step beyond using the work as a starting point. For a sneaker debut this month, the designer has enlisted Mr. Clark to shoot an advertising campaign and promotional video.

“When I accepted the Dior job, the first thing I told them was that I’m not a fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. photographer,” Mr. Clark said. “And their immediate response was, ‘That’s why we want you.’”

The resultant campaign shares an aesthetic with his films “The Smell of Us”(2014), “Wassup Rockers” (2006) and “Kids” (1995). Mr. Clark trained his camera on Parisian skateboarders and street youth, with a few professional models mixed in, lending some grit to the collection, which includes sneakers in seven styles, from paint-splattered Prince of Wales high-tops to flocked velvet slip-ons. “It felt like a full circle,” Mr. Van Assche said. “Larry from my inspiration walls became the image-maker for the collection.”

KATE MARA’S LATEST DIOR LOOK WAS ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS

Kate Mara has returned to the red carpet circuit with “Man Down,” which premiered in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. (The new film, co-starring Shia LaBeouf, hits theaters this weekend.) For the special occasion, the actress wore Dior, in the form of a short, nude, tulle dressA dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment). embroidered with the same motifs used throughout newly appointed creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut collection, which has been making the red carpet rounds lately. Mara’s peep-toe heels — Christian Louboutin — were also studded, quite literally, with details. A champion of the evening-ready mini dress, Mara’s quite the pro when it comes to keeping simple outfit choices interesting.

We also have to give a quick shout-out to her beauty look, too. Now that the 33-year-old style star’s gone platinum blonde, her dark manicure, bold lip and slight smokey eye add a moody-but-cool component to her overall look. Welcome back, Kate. We can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with next.

Dior Homme’s Black Carpet Collection Is Full of Deconstructed Formalwear

Come Spring 2017, Dior Homme is introducing an antidote to boring formalwear. According to Kris Van Assche, he is “reworking the evening suit by pushing it in more extreme interpretations.” The result is The Black Carpet Collection, a capsule that aims to elevate the after-dark wardrobe of men everywhere.

There will be no ill-fitting tuxedos here; the same goes for cringe-worthy satin lapels. Instead, Dior’s skinny silhouette reigns supreme and classic fabrics are deconstructed or toughened up with paint splatters or purposeful creases. Basically, these are the suits you want to wear to your artist friend’s wedding or any dressy fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. week party, at any city in the world.

“The idea of the Black Carpet was to convey the energy and rebel attitude of the runway collection on a capsule collection of evening wear, while playing with the embellishment codes and the know-how of Dior,” said Van Assche on the range. Did we mention that selvedge fabrics are used in the construction of these formalwear pieces? Or that a “scar” is etched into the lapel of a Smoking Jacket, to reveal a black and white scribble underneath?

Though we can’t promise that you will actually become cooler by wearing a piece from this collection, we can guarantee that you will at least adopt an air of intrigue. Which we hear is totally in for Spring 2017.

Review: Dior’s Diorama bags cater to all types

As they say, the show must go on.

Even with Raf Simons’ recent departure, Dior held steadfast and true to its motto of class and quality for its Fall-Winter 2016 collection, with the bags leading the way.

This time we tested out three bags from what many industry insiders are calling a ‘placeholder’ collection: a Diorama satchel, Diorama club and Diorama bag.

While all are from the same line, each bag caters to a different woman. The Diorama black and blue club is for the chameleon who wants to flawlessly transition from day to night. The silver Diorama bag with the house’s iconic cannage setting is for the woman who’s after a timeless look; and the tufted Diorama satchel is for the businesswoman who’s looking to impress.

The collection marks a unique stand-alone period between Simons’ tenure as artistic director and just before Maria Grazia Chiuri from Valentine joined to take over the mantle and inject the brandA brand (or marque for car model) is a name, term, design, symbol or other feature that distinguishes one seller’s product from those of others.[2] Brands are used in business, marketing, and advertising. Initially, livestock branding was adopted to differentiate one person’s cattle from another’s by means of a distinctive symbol burned into the animal’s skin with a hot branding iron. with her unique sense of style and glamour. Dreamed up by the maison’s in-house atelier helmed by the capable Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux, the bags are a pleasant surprise.

On a functional note, it is wise to bear in mind that they are all very structural and you won’t be able to fit much apart from your daily necessities. However, they all boast classic lines and sophisticated patterns, meaning they will last you for the next five years or more, which is good news, as the bags range from HK$22,000 to HK$34,000 and is best viewed as more of an investment piece to add to your portfolio.

Dior Toasts Its Lady Art Project in Miami

The Basel parade is back in full swing; there were more parties than one could count last night, and it was only Tuesday. In the Design District, Dior hosted a cocktail fete at its vertiginous 39th Street storeA retail store where merchandise is sold, usually a product, usually on a retail basis, and where wares are often kept., where Petra Nemcova, Laura Love, Chelsea Leyland, and more browsed a new collection of accessories dubbed Lady Art, based on the house’s iconic Lady Dior handbag. The endeavor was produced in collaboration with seven artists: Ian Davenport, Mat Collishaw, Jason Martin, Marc Quinn, Daniel Gordon, Chris Martin, and Matthew Porter (somewhat ironically, all men).

Bathed in the distinct, oh-so-Miami glow of pink neon on Dior’s rooftop, guests perused the goods: A few eyed the eyeball emblazoned on Quinn’s contribution, while some circled Jason Martin’s sculpted metallic interpretations and others Insta-storied the jaunty tree frogs applied to Chris Martin’s options. Davenport, an artist who works with poured liquid paint to create long lines that “group” at the bottom of each piece, reimagined his signature motif—and the results are fantastic. “I wanted to make it a bit funky and 21st century,” he said. “It was funny—with Dior’s design team, we would present different things, but we always seemed to be heading in the same direction, which is really reassuring!”

Porter, a photographer, mainly, wanted to “start from the ground up”—so he drew, as opposed to snapped, his designs. “Fashion is kind of the uncomfortable sibling to art, in a way—we love each other, though sometimes we don’t,” he said. “But I always embrace the positive things in the relationship.” Consider Dior’s combo a loving moment between kin.

Dior, Loewe, Margiela All Held Art Basel Blowouts Last Night

Luxury retailers are riding the wave as Miami’s Design District continues to flourish with the addition of new galleries and public installations. It continued last night with no less than four luxury fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture.

It started at Dior, to celebrate the launch of the Lady Dior Art handbag range in which seven artists reinterpreted the iconic Lady Dior accessory with their own twist. The limited edition bags, designed coincidentally enough by a group of seven male artists—Ian Davenport, Mat Collishaw, Jason Martin, Marc Quinn, Daniel Gordon, Chris Martin and Matthew Porter— will be available for purchase at the brand’s Design District store for the rest of the week inside of a site-specific installation created for the launch. Dior obsessives who came out to fête the limited edition range included model Petra Nemcova, Charlotte Sarkozy, and social fixture duo Laura Love and Derek Blasberg, both of whom indulged in the fluorescent-hued cocktails on offer at the store’s newly debuted rooftop party spot.

It was then onward to Loewe, where the store space debuted a new exhibition hanging among the racks of clothes and shelves of now-signature Elephant clutches. The exhibit entitled “Chance Encounters II” features the works of William McKeown and John Ward, both of whom were selected for the showing by Loewe’s own Creative Director, Jonathan Anderson, who held court at the retail outpost throughout the evening.

Chelsea Leyland was on hand to DJ the event, while inimitable party fixture, and shadowy real estate scion, James Goldstein made a brief appearance with model Vaida Urmul on his arm.

Jennifer Lawrence Returns to the Red Carpet With a Princess-Worthy Fashion Moment – Dior

It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet. In fact, aside from the occasional front-row appearance at FashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers. Week, she’s been markedly absent from the scene. And yet today at a photo call for her upcoming film Passengers, she proved that she still knows exactly how to make a grand entrance. With its L’Etoile script and motif, her Christian Dior cashmere-and-Lurex sweater radiated star power in no uncertain terms; paired with a tulle skirt, the overall effect was decidedly princess-worthy.

Lawrence has always taken a playful approach to her personal style and never shies away from trying on the season’s most fashion-forward trends for sizeSize refers to the concept of things, usually physical objects, having measurements that are relatively greater or lesser than other things along certain dimensions in physical space, such as length, width, height, diameter, perimeter, area, volume, or mass. In mathematical terms, “[s]ize is a concept abstracted from the process of measuring by comparing a longer to a shorter”.[1] Size is determined by the process of comparing or measuring objects, which results in the determination of the magnitude of a quantity, such as length or mass, relative to a unit of measurement. Such a magnitude is usually expressed as a numerical value of units on a previously established scale, such as meters or inches., be that logomania, boudoir dressing, or Angelina Jolie–style slit dresses. Last night’s look certainly took the actress’s wardrobe in a more whimsical direction, without losing any of the casual cool that makes Lawrence so approachable; that glamorous moment all boiled down to a cozy sweater and skirt, after all.

Arm candy: artists get creative with a Dior classic

Back in June this year, when Dior opened the doors to its monolithic storeA retail store where merchandise is sold, usually a product, usually on a retail basis, and where wares are often kept. on London’s Bond Street, the occasion was celebrated with the introduction of a line of limited-edition bags. The eye-catching series was the result of an exclusive collaboration with British art supremo Marc Quinn, who translated his artworks onto Dior’s timeless Lady Dior bag as well as other small leather accessories.

Designed in 1995, the clean architectural form of the Lady Dior proved to be the perfect blank canvas for Quinn’s work prompting Dior to extend the invitation to collaborate to five other esteemed American and British artists.

Unveiled today in the maison’s Miami boutique, new experimental interpretations of the classic bag and accessories come courtesy of Matthew Porter, Mat Collishaw, Jason Martin, Ian Davenport, Daniel Gordon and Quinn once again. Each artist was given carte blanche, allowing them to push the limits of the leatherLeather is a durable and flexible material created by tanning animal rawhide and skin, often cattle hide. It can be produced at manufacturing scales ranging from cottage industry to heavy industry. as well as the skill of Dior’s craftspeople.

Ian Davenport’s unmistakable stripes of glossy paint, which are typically applied to a canvas with a syringe (showcased here on a limited-edition cover for us in 2006), are translated into bands of embossed silvered leather. Running down the bag’s exterior, the leather bands of colour intricately swirl into each other at its base, just like paint on a canvas. Inside, a colourful dotted lining mimics a paint-splattered area of floor in Davenport’s London studio. ‘Using the metallic colours has given me more ideas for the future,’ says Davenport. ‘That’s the great thing about a project like this – it can open up another line of inquiry you wouldn’t normally explore.’

Meanwhile, British artist Mat Collishaw drew inspiration from one his major works to create high-definition prints of butterfly wings on glazed leather – a material that possesses a suitably velvety texture. Applied to the Lady Dior bags, clutches and a silk scarf, the close-up butterfly wings are shot against a black background that contrasts with the bags’ bright blue or yellow linings. ‘I knew that I wanted something that was exquisite and had texture,’ says Collishaw of his designs. ‘The surface of the velvet is not dissimilar to the surface of a moth or butterfly with very fine hairs and a slightly iridescent texture to it. The first bags we made by printing onto leather, then we started thinking about clutch bags; we wanted to do something a little softer, so velvet was the obvious choice.’

After the launch in Miami, the creations will embark upon a global tour, stopping at a Los Angeles pop-up before continuing to stores in Korea, London, China, Dubai and Paris.
