Acne Studios RTW Spring 2020

For his spring collection, Jonny Johansson turned to nature, considering the evergreen question of how to reconcile modern life with the tug of the natural world. 
“It’s a lot about the connection to nature — that I feel we’re all interested in,” he said. He sought to capture a feminine aesthetic for the theme, which he described as a way of dressing in a “more sensitive, layered way than a protected, city way that would be more graphic.”
The resulting lineup was a fluid display of the house’s expertise, channeled into a frayed, knotted, repurposed, and, ultimately, richly textured universe. Sweater vests and gowns were knitted intricately to evoke a distressed feel. Leggings splayed out at the bottom to cover the feet and carried extra seams in odd places. So, too, did dresses, with pleats stitched through the fabric like veins, or folds. Familiar symbols, like Western belt buckles, were blown up, becoming embellishments on sandals that had straps poking out everywhere. Softness came from a profusion of suede and linen, while jacquards and denim added structure. Reproductions of 19th-century paintings by August Strindberg were pressed onto clothing, depicting the murky side of the city or celebrating nature in the form of

Bristol Studio’s Collaboration With Adidas Originals Taps Vintage Basketball

ALL GROWN UP: Bristol Studio’s latest collaboration with Adidas Originals brings back retro, on-the-court vibes as creative director and founder Luke Tadashi referenced summer days playing basketball as a kid.
Tadashi went back in time to the days he and best friends Maasai Ephriam (now handling public relations and social media at Bristol) and London Perrantes would spend their summers playing basketball with the adults on the court in Venice Beach. “It was our ritual,” Tadashi said of the near-daily treks on bike to play.
The collaboration serves as a Polaroid of sorts to that time with “colorful but muted tones,” Tadashi said, which reference the colors the three would see on their trips.
The childhood nostalgia was carried into the ad campaign, with Tadashi, Ephriam and Perrantes each tapping someone from their families to also model the collection.

Acne Studios Men’s Spring 2020

Jonny Johansson built a colorful and youthful lineup, rearranging familiar silhouettes and polishing them up for a fashion-hungry generation.
The designer once lived near a student campus, where he felt the breeziness of the students passing by — more seasoned than school kids, but not quite yet melded into the Establishment.
He recounted the scene: “I could see them — on the bicycle, always — some cool cat coming by with a blazer flying or a weird scarf.”
His cool cats grabbed this spirit and took off with it — dismounting the bicycle and hitting the streets of a fashion capital.
Suits were beautifully colored statement pieces, structured and boxy. This sturdiness was offset by interesting experiments with knits — a bright red sweater looked like a poncho, covered in fringes, while a top with a thin ruffle running across the chest felt more like a blouse than a sweater. His masterful handling of gender fluidity was also seen in a look that paired a sheer pastel shirt with lace trim and elegant, but masculine trousers, in black. Scarves, which are popping up all over the men’s shows, were worn around the neck with extra flair.
Embellishments came in the form of plastic panels —

Scary Chic: Jeremy Scott Shows Monster Moschino Collection at Universal Studios Hollywood

In the era of fashion-as-entertainment, it’s amazing it took this long for a designer to stage a full-fledged runway extravaganza at an actual Hollywood studio.
Jeremy Scott did just that Friday night in Los Angeles, bringing a monster of a Moschino Resort collection to Universal Studios’ eerily blissful suburban Americana stand-in used for “Leave it To Beaver,” “The Munsters” and “Desperate Housewives.”
It was the culmination of a lifelong dream for the designer, who has ambitions to make a film of his own one day a la Tom Ford, and remembered the first time he visited Universal Studios from Kansas City at age 13 in typical aw-shucks fashion: “We stayed at the Sheraton. I was with my family, and I told the other people in the hot tub I was going to be a famous star one day…I didn’t really think I was going to be a fashion star.”
The show was scripted from the moment guests entered the gate of the studio, hallowed ground for Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg – and for Hollywood’s most prolific costume designer, Edith Head. With a short video of Scott as tour guide, guests took the backlot tour trams, rolling past sets for “Psycho” and “Jaws” and

Ones to Watch: System Studios

PARIS — It is System Studios’ first time on the Paris Fashion Week schedule, but the brand has been present in the French capital for quite some time. The South Korean ready-to-wear brand’s men’s and women’s collection can be found at Parisian concept-store Tom Greyhound, where its performance led the brand to start thinking about exposing its designs to an international audience.
“System Studios has become one of the three best-selling brands in the store, after Off-White and Loewe,” said David Kang, who heads the Paris division of Handsome Corp., the South Korean company owning both System and Tom Greyhound.
Tom Greyhound is System Studio’s only point of sale outside of Asia; it counts 100 retailers in South Korea alone. “We’ve had a lot of positive comments from our Parisian clients about the brand,” continued Kang. “It confirmed our wish to launch internationally.”
Inspired by Seoul’s distinctive street style, System Studios was launched in 1990 for women’s wear and 2008 for men’s wear. The brand’s international design teams — 47 people for women’s, 36 for men’s — are based in Seoul.
Based on the concept of mix and match, classical pieces, like a tailored jacket or a striped shirt, are modernized with more streetwear-inspired

Robin Derrick Departs Spring Studios to Pursue Beauty Project

BEAUTY CALLING: The London-based creative Robin Derrick is departing Spring Studios as global executive director to move onto a new, unnamed project in the beauty arena.
Derrick worked at Spring in his global role for seven years, having joined in 2011 from Condé Nast where he’d spent 20 years as creative director of British Vogue.
During his tenure at Spring, Derrick was the creative lead of the company during a growth period. Spring opened in New York in 2013 and Milan in 2016.
While at Spring, Derrick had been developing his own brand and business projects. “Robin is now leaving to devote his time to those projects. We take this opportunity to wish him well for the future and thank him for his years of service to Spring,” the company said Wednesday.
Derrick said he learned “invaluable lessons from both the incredible staff and inspirational clients. I am grateful for an extraordinary opportunity to help build a next-generation communication company and I look forward to watching Spring grow in the future.”
It is understood that Derrick’s next project will be in beauty, although a spokesperson for Spring said it was still confidential and declined to give any details.

Acne Studios Opens San Francisco Store; West Hollywood to Follow

Acne Studios this week opens its fifth U.S. store and second in California on Geary Street in San Francisco. The 967-square-foot store is a former ice warehouse that has been rebuilt in red brick with architectural elements painted the same shade of red as the Golden Gate Bridge.

Acne Studios’ San Francisco store. 

“I wanted this store to have a special mood both for the location and for San Francisco itself. It is a large and beautiful space, and we have therefore kept the fixtures to a minimum,” said Acne’s cofounder and creative director Jonny Johansson.
The store has a raw industrial feeling, with ceiling-high windows, a poured concrete floor and perimeter walls clad in polycarbonate sheets colored in milky off-white. The sheets stretch floor-to-ceiling and clip together to create the sense of a space within the space.
A long aluminium wall stretches across the entrance, with a single aluminium display rail and a bespoke bench in front of it. Behind this wall, the aluminium fittings, shelves and tables give ample room to stand on their own. The lighting, which hangs from the ceiling in a uniform grid pattern, was specially designed for the store.

I Love LA Self-Guided Tour Series: Classic Studios & Old-Time Movie and TV Locations


This guide was compiled from my own research, trying to find actual filming locations from major classic movies and TV shows. As a tour guide, I wanted to be able to drive people past some of the most recognizable (and unrecognizable) landmarks from their favorite shows and movies. This list, for the most part, is classic TV and movies. Much of the production done in Los Angeles now is actually not done here, it’s done in Vancouver and overseas. But for those who like the old stuff, you will enjoy driving around and catching a glimpse of some of the places on this list. This is not intended to be a comprehensive guide, I don’t go into a great deal of detail, it’s intended for those short on time to see a few things that may be of interest. The topics are listed in alphabetical order. The beauty of this guide is that you can do bits and pieces of it, and spread it out over several days, or you can try to squeeze everything in during a day. It can be done, but it will be more fun if you can linger a bit, and dream about what it must have been like to live in Los Angeles during Hollywood’s heyday. Or, you can concentrate on just what interests you. Many of these locations are not in Los Angeles, or Hollywood proper. Therefore, you really need a car to see any of these places. I recommend using a GPS too, as roads change all the time and me giving directions is pointless. Keep in mind, Los Angeles didn’t get its reputation for bad traffic from nowhere, so allow plenty of time to get where you want to go, relax, and have fun! It is important to note that Los Angeles changes constantly. Some of the buildings that were visible at the time of this publication may not be available in a week, or a month, things change. Also, some of the venues are no longer, so you will have to use a bit of imagination. I have tried to jot down some of my personal advice or recollections on some of the sites, and I know you’ll have your own. The list includes famous movie studios (so

Mae Whitman doesn’t want to Tinker with the way Disneytoon Studios has been running its “Fairies” film franchise

It was early 2008 when Mae Whitman got this mysterious call from her voiceover agent, Melissa.

“She was telling me that Disney had this very important project but that they wouldn’t tell Melissa what it actually was. All she knew that that they were eager for me to come in and audition for this part,” Whitman recalled during a 2012 interview.

So Mae went in for this audition. Where — once she got in front of that mic– Whitman discovered that she was just supposed to read a couple of very vaguely-written lines. There were nothing on these pages that gave Mae any information about the character that she was supposed to be voicing. Even stranger, the guys behind the glass in the recording booth were being very tight-lipped as well.

“I got none of the guidance that you typically get in a voiceover recording session. ‘Could you please say that line again only faster?,’ ‘Could you make your character sound more excited or happier?’ They just sat back and listened,” Whitman continued. “And since I’ve been doing voiceover work since I was five, which is why I’m very comfortable in a recording booth … Well, I just decided to be myself. Read those lines in my normal speaking voice.”

Ah, but what Mae didn’t know was that this wasn’t just any audition. After announcing back in June of 2006 that Brittany Murphy was going to be the official voice of Tinker Bell for a new series of Disney Fairies home premieres, Disneytoon Studios had now decided to go another way with this character. And the reason that they’d called Whitman in was that they were now considering her as someone who could possibly voice Peter Pan’s pixie pal.

“From what we’ve already seen of Tinker Bell in Disney’s 1953 animated feature, we knew that this character was curious. That she’s fun. She’s feisty. She’s super-loyal to Peter. Not to mention able to get angry. So we really needed to find a voice that could capture all of those emotions that we already knew about Tinker Bell without her even speaking,” explained Peggy Holmes, the director of Secret of the Wings & the soon-to-be-released The Pirate Fairy. “So we needed to find an actress that could portray that range of emotions. And Mae Whitman — thankfully — had that range. She can work onstage. She can work on film. She can work on television. And she can work in voiceover. And it’s all that experience that gave her the depth that we need for this iconic character.”

2014-03-31-Mae1.jpg

And when Whitman found out that she was being offered the opportunity to voice Tinker Bell, she freaked.

“Now you have to understand that — when I was growing up — Peter Pan was my favorite Disney movie. So to now be part of the team that gets to go back to Never Land and have all these new adventures with characters that I’ve loved since childhood … Well, it’s honestly like a dream come true,” Mae enthused. “So for me, this job is definitely filled with love.”

Mind you, at this point, Whitman now has six Disney Fairies films & TV specials under her belt. And having spent all that time in Pixie Hollow, has the pixie dust now begun to fade for her?

“To be honestly, no,” Mae stated. “What’s great about the people at Disneytoon Studios is that — with each of these projects — they’ve then built out the world of Pixie Hollow bit by bit. With each film, they’ve brought in new characters. Better yet, they’ve allowed Tinker Bell and her friends to change and grow.”

“I mean, in the first Disney Fairies film, Tinker Bell didn’t even want to be a tinker. She wanted to change her talent. But at this point in the Disney Fairies film series, Tink is hugely proud of being a tinker fairy. She wouldn’t change her talent for anything in the world,” Whitman said. “That’s what I love about working on this series. The lessons carry over from movie to movie. More to the point, Tinker Bell herself changes from film & film. She’s always changing and growing.”

And speaking of growing … After spending the past five projects exploring this one teeny tiny corner of Never Land, the folks at Disneytoon Studios have decided to use The Pirate Fairy as an excuse to finally leave Pixie Hollow and go off & explore more of the island.

“The initial idea was to do a road trip adventure with Tinker Bell and her friends and this adventure dealt with a rogue fairy who was experimenting with pixie dust,” explained Jeffrey M. Howard, the screenwriter on “The Pirate Fairy.” “But once we had the idea of putting pirates into this ‘Disney Fairies’ film … Well, it only seemed natural to include the most famous Never Land pirate of all, Captain Hook.”

2014-03-31-Mae2.jpg

Now do keep in mind that this is a far younger version of James Bartholomew Hook than we saw in Disney’s 1953 version of Peter Pan. But the story team at Disneytoon Studios actually turned this to their advantage by making The Pirate Fairy the very first time this Disney Villain fought using a hook or got chomped in the butt by Tic Toc the crocodile. And if you sit through the credits of this Disney Fairies film, you actually get to see that fateful moment where Hook first meets Mr. Smee.

And for someone like Mae Witman, who’s been a Peter Pan fan for as long as she can remember, doing voicework on a film where Tink and her friends actually visit Skull Rock and then do battle on a flying pirate ship that’s being powered by pixie dust … Well, you just know that this has to be a thrill.

“I just love that I get to be a part of this legacy at Disney,” Whitman admitted. “I mean, back in September of 2012, I got to be part of this D23 event which honored 75 years of Feature Animation. Which was where I was supposed to be paneling with Margaret Kerry — who was the live-action model for this character back in the early 1950s — and Ginny Mack — who Walt personally chose as the face model for Tinker Bell.”

“Now I’m backstage with Peggy Holmes, waiting to go. And just then it hits me that I’m now actually part of this Disney legacy. That I’m now one of the women who’s been entrusted with keeping the character of Tinker Bell alive & magical,” Mae remembered. “And I got so emotionally overwhelmed at that moment that Peggy actually had to walk me around for a little while and calm me down a little.”

“I just hope that — 60 years from now — when Disney’s putting together panels to promote the new holographic Tinker Bell movies that they’ll be making then that I’ll look as good as Margaret & Ginny did at that D23 presentation,” Whitman laughed.
