Weekly fashion videos: Net-à-Porter TV, 3D ads, model interviews
Sunday 13 February 2011
Check out this week's fashion video releases.
Designer shopping site Net-à-Porter now has its own TV channel that features designer interviews, trend reports, styling tips, and historic fashion moments.
To promote the launch of new styles in its Curve ID denim line, Levi's brings us a cheerful video featuring women in hip-hugging jeans, celebrating their curves. Curve ID utilizes a fit system based on shape, not size.
Iconic sneaker label Converse and Finnish design brand Marimekko have released a cinematic short film for their collaboration that can now be found online.
This making-of video of the Dr. Martens spring lookbook features some serious hipster offspring, with Louis Simonon, son of The Clash bassist Paul Simonon, and Phoenix Richmond, daughter of designer John Richmond, both modeling the boots.
From a Givenchy ad campaign to a LOVE magazine cover, Lea T. is the first successful transsexual model. In this new video by Models.com, she speaks about her relationship with Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, her Oprah appearance, and more.
And another model interview made waves this week: Crystal Renn told the Ford Models blog about her work with Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, her time spent working with Carine Roitfeld at Vogue Paris, as well as the speculation surrounding her recent weight loss.
Teen Vogue has released a behind-the-scenes video from its cover shoot with new fashion darling Willow Smith. The nine-year-old daughter of actor Will Smith profits from the industry's current obsession with fashion child stars such as actress Elle Fanning and blogger Tavi Gevinson.
Speaking of Fanning, the 12-year-old who starred in Sofia Coppola's Somewhere is also the latest muse of designing sisters Rodarte, who put her into their new collection for this Nowness movie.
See models Jourdan Dunn and Sacha M'Baye work their best poses in a making-of from their Burberry campaign shoot.
