I just came across this new site, NOWNESS, and it’s pretty enthralling. They describe themselves as:
“… the digital leader in luxury storytelling. Each day, NOWNESS showcases an exclusive premiere of the most inspiring stories influencing contemporary culture and global lifestyle, previewing the latest in fashion, gastronomy, art, film, music, design, travel and sport.
NOWNESS collaborates with the world’s foremost designers, creatives and thinkers in the luxury industry. NOWNESS is an innovative space where ideas, both timeless and timely, are first and foremost.”
You should definitely take some time and check out their site, but first you should watch the video they did about the Spring/Summer 2012 McQueen collection. In it, Cathy Horyn (New York Times fashion critic) chats with Sarah Burton at the label’s Paris atelier about the house’s marine-inspired collection.
I couldn’t figure out how to embed the video here, so (after checking out some of my fav screenshots of the video below) click on over to here and bless your eyes and ears!
If you follow me on twitter, you know that last month I helped out at a photo shoot for local designer gr.dano, who I am currently interning for. It was a total blast! A couple of the other interns and I were there to make sure things ran as smoothly as possible. I mainly helped out with the outfit changes, making sure that everything was ready and waiting when it needed to be. These are a few snapshots that I snuck in here and there when I could!
The Fall 2011 collection will be available at the 440 Brannan Store and Studio later this year. To tide you over until then you can checkout a few of the looks below, and the rest of the collection here! Also, read some other write-ups on Refinery29 and SF Indie Fashion.
