Plain beauty

Brand - Willow

I really like Australian brand called Willow, the label is full of day-to-night outfits, feminine but also little bit edgy. I would love to own one of the jackets/blazers from the collections, the cut and material really make them unique.

Fashion Films

As I said in my previous post i am very interested in fashion films and thanks to my blogger friend "Dolls Factory" i have been watching all the videous like crazy submitted for ASVOFF.
The video called "Herr Rodebjer" in particular amazed me, it was directed by Mattias Montero for Rodebjer brand. Imagery wise it was one of the most strongest short films i have ever seen. He has an amazing imagination and super talent to recreate it in a film. I love the creepy umbrella people.

My other favorites I have posted before and i would love to share it again.
First one is Chanel comercial because of the magical world that it creates,it makes me want to live in a "Chanel world". The song - I am a fool to want you by Billie Holiday - one of my favourites, and it was filmed in Istanbul- the most beautiful city at least for me

The second one is by Muiccia Prada who is truly intellectual designer kind, only she could come up with such a beautiful perfume ad with an ancient poem that describes divine feminine nature. You can find the poem below as well which I think is a must read for every girl.

The Thunder, Perfect Mind

For I am the first and the last
I am the wife and the virgin.
I am the mother and the daughter.
I am she whose wedding is great,and I have not taken a husband.
I am the bride and the bridegroom.
I am senseless and I am wise;
Come forward to childhood,and do not despise it because it is small and it is little.
And do not turn away greatnesses in some parts from the smallnesses,
for the smallnesses are known from the greatnesses.
I am the one who is honoured and who is praised,
For I am knowledge and ignorance.
I am shame and boldness.
I am shameless; I am ashamed.
I am control and the uncontrollable.
For I am strength and I am fear
I am war and peace
I am the substance and the one who has no substance.
But I, I am compassionate and I am cruel.
Do not hate my obedience
And do not love my self-control.
I am the union and the dissolution.
But I am she who exists in all fearsand strength in trembling.
And I am an alien and a citizen.
I am the silence that is incomprehensible
and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.
I am the voice whose sound is manifold
For I am the first and the last.

Rodarte Video Ad

SOLILOQUY 88 from JASON LAST on Vimeo.

Recently I am very into fashion film ads. I didnt like Rodarte sisters previous video ad campaign but this one I love so much better imagery and soundtrack is great. Its called SOLILOQUY 88, I really had no idea what that means so I looked it up apparently it is a Radium, a white radioactive metal with the atomic number 88, if it is exposed to oxygen it turns black. I think only Rodarte sisters with their truly unique collection can come up with such a name to relate to their collection. Doesnt this prove that inspiration for fashion is everywhere?
