Kate Moss for Mango

Kate Moss has been named the new face of Mango for Spring/Summer 2012.
After shooting a campaign with Terry Richardson for the Autumn/Winter campagin, it is no suprise she has been named the face of the highstreet brand.

‘Kate Moss was chosen as the image of Mango because she’s a world-famous fashion icon, making her one of the most sought-after models in the fashion world,’ said a Mango spokeswoman. ‘She had a turbulent past, which she has put behind her to continue being a supermodel, and has recently married and become a mother. After two decades appearing on catwalks worldwide, she has demonstrated that she is the top model par excellence.’

The video for SS12 has been shot again by Terry Richardson.

So will there be another Kate Moss range for the highstreet?


Ab Fab Ladies for Alexis Bittar

After a run of sucsessful Christmas specials, the Ab Fab ladies are back. However this time not on our screens, but in thier very own fashion campaign. The campaign is for accessories designer and jeweler Alexis Bittar, and Vogue was backstage filming the shoot.

Joanna Lumley (aka Patsy) told Vogue:

“Such a fabulous shoot in the glorious jewellery from Alexis; it was sensational and I am thrilled with the pieces I have from his generous talented hands. Patsy was transfixed by the quality and wants lots more forever. I hope the campaign rocks: I am a fan for life.”

Bittar said on the campaign,

“I’ve watched every single episode at least 50 times, so I was excited to meet and get to work with them. We had so much fun on set; the ladies are so at ease in those characters, as soon as they slipped on the jewels and clothes it was such a transformation – it was like, bam: here we are sweety dahhhling.”

Jean Paul Gaultier Couture.

Jean – Paul Gaultier paid tribute to the late Amy Winehouse when he unveiled his couture show in Paris inspired by her.

The models walked the catwalk to a soundtrack by the singer, sporting her signature beehive hair, heavy eye liner and 50s-style fashion.

Gaultier took inspiration from Amy’s collaboration with Fred Perry and worked polo shirt style pieces as well as corset dresses and pencil skirts.
The collection as a whole is very wearable for couture.

Backstage Gaultier told reporters after the show “Amy Winehouse was a true style icon. What she stands for above all, is uniqueness. Both in music and the way she dressed, she mixed a great many influences”

What do you think of the late Amy Winehouse as a muse?

Daisy Lowe for Lara Bohinc

Daisy Lowe is the new face of the go-to brand for statement accessories, Lara Bohinc.

The hedonistic and 70’s style campaign was shot by photographer Jon Compson, and model Daisy Lowe looks incredible in the shots.

Bohinc, the company’s creative director told Grazia “I was inspired by old Biba campaigns featuring cushions and fabrics scattered everywhere and girls plunged deep into their sofas, look other wordly.’

One can only wish to look this good in just accessories.

You can get similar statement turban pieces over at Closetbox.
