Adam Kimmel – I have been paying more attention to him since his F/W 2011 show. He had definitely the most interesting models.

Band of Outsiders – Too much white – especially pants, but I like this bomber jacket.

Comme des Garçons – Just too demanding for me – excluding this look. I like the shorts and mix of patterns.

Dries Van Noten – I am interested in his stuff more and more. In S/S 12 almost all clothes waterproof, many nice jackets.

THROWBACK INSPIRATION: MARC JACOBS & LOUIS VUITTON DOCUMENTARY.

Screen shot 2011-06-26 at 3.36.48 PMKun Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton dokumentti julkaistiin 2008 laitoin sen välittömästi must-see listalle. Vaikka kesti viime viikkoon asti että vihdoin näin sen oli odotus ehdottomasti sen arvoista. Reality-henkisesti toteutettu dokkari on yksityisen filmmaker Loic Prigentin kuvapäiväkirja Marc Jacobsin arjesta vuodelta 2007. Dokkarissa nähdään Marc työskentelemässä, suunnittelemassa, hakemassa inspiraatiota, toteuttamassa Vuittonin & Marc Jacobsin muotinäytöksiä sekä myös muotimaailman businesspuolta. Kokonaisuus on hyvin mielenkiintoinen katsaus Louis Vuittonin ja Marc Jacobsin nimikköbrändin kulisseihin jonka jälkeen katsoja todennäköisesti arvostaa Mr Jacobsia entistä enemmän. Suosittelen ehdottomasti.

ENG: I put the Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton documentary immediately to the must-see list when it was published in 2008. Even though I only saw it last week was the wait worth it. The reality-like produced documentary is a film diary of the everyday of Marc Jacobs in year 2007 by the independent filmmaker Loic Prigent. The documentary shows us Marc working, designing, getting inspired, carrying out Vuitton & Marc Jacobs fashion shows and as well a look into the business world of fashion. The whole documentary is a very interesting look into the scenes of Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs signature brand after which the viewer probably appreciates Mr Jacobs even more. An absolute must-see.
