    Rick Owens' stylish descent

    Fashion, it seems, is getting nicer by the minute. After Alber Elbaz's politely deferential explanation of the lateness of the Lanvin show, today Rick Owens sent a handwritten note of apology for the problems experienced at the door to his Paris show. Unexpected but more than welcome as Rick's note was, it didn't arrive alone: Owens also sent a copy of his book L'Ai-Je Bien Descendu? - a quote from Parisian showgirl Cécile Sorel, roughly translated as "How did you like my descent?" - marking ten years of his fashion work. This tome, as beautiful as it is weighty, is crammed with photographs in ever-stylish black and white from the likes of Edward Steichen, Corrine Day and Annie Leibovitz alongside those snapped by the designer himself, both documenting and inspiring Owen's individualistic ouvre: definitely worth sharing with the SHOWstudio public, I reasoned.

    Fresh Meat at Mandi Lennard

    Yes, the latest round of press-days is upon us to showcase designers' wares from Spring/Summer 2009 - and what better way to start than with the indominable Mandi Lennard, a mere snow-dusted (or rather, sludge-speckled) hop around the corner from SHOWstudio on Hoxon Street. Mandi has the edge over much of her competition on two fronts: the star-studded phalanx of fashion's finest she represents, and the constantly changing themes that see her press room transformed season to season. For winter it was Mandi's basement New Yoik style and last spring was strewn with big-cat prints. This time, it was rather more visceral - 'Meat the Butcher', inspired by Central Saint Martins' graduate Yang Du's carnivorous entrail-embroidered faux furs, meant that Mandi's basement was awash with gore by the way of painted pork-chops and blood-red goodie bags (luckily, a theme not carried through to the nibbles).

    The real meat on offer at Mandi's was, as always, her designers. Everyone seemed to make a beeline for Gareth Pugh's corner - well, an Elizabethan epic of a ruff cleanly four feet in diameter is bound to attract attention. Alas, try as I may I was unable to cram my beefy neck in to its narrow sample-sized confines. The surprising thing, however, was just how wearable the vast majority of Gareth's vice-versa monochromism seemed on the rail - albeit minus the leather-panelled breastplates projecting like the Titanic's prow. Henry Holland's floral and polka-dot separates bore up under closer inspection, as did Danielle Scutt's printed chiffons, with a zip-scarred Betty Boop gracing a practically transparent romper and giant lipsticks floating across a moody grey sky on gored skater-skirts and flippy frocks. Following on from his dark presentation at London Fashion Week was Nasir Mazhar's installation of rather ominous floating headpieces were seemingly inspired by cardinals' galeros - suspended above their tombs following death, the old tradition is that when the hat finally falls down it is a sign that the cardinal's soul has been released from purgatory. Slightly more light-hearted were Roksanda Ilincic's tulle-swathed raw-edged slithers of silk-satin, embroidered with quivvering feathers, tinkling with laser-cut crystals and appliqued with rambling, overblown roses: sheer, sherberty sweetness made flesh.

    An evening in with Stefano Pilati

    An evening with Stefano Pilati is the dream of many red-blooded females (and males, for that matter) - and yesterday evening, several hundred of them packed into the London College of Fashion to hear Mr Pilati in conversation with the always-erudite Colin McDowell.

    An insight into a designer's working practice is always a rare treat - particularly when said designer is both unquestionably one of the most influential figures on the international fashion stage and simultaneously entrusted with one of its most awesome legacies. This delicate balancing-act is one Pilati has to deal with each season, and last night demonstrated just how deftly Pilati has managed to respect the dictats of Saint Laurent while moving the YSL brand resolutely to the forefront of modern mores. Indeed, when McDowell opened the interview with talk of sex, it could have been the late Yves himself talking as Pilati declared "the seduction factor for me is the most important thing." In the next instant, however, Pilati was declaring fashion to be the last great artisan-form - tantamount to sacrilege from a designer picking up the mantle of arguably the greatest fashion 'artist' of all time, but at the same time a realistic assessment of a craft that still relies on hand-workmanship and interaction of cloth and body for its best effects.

    Throughout the course of the evening, it was this genuine, unreserved love of his craft - and of making modern women look beautiful - shone through with Pilati's every declaration, whether this was his rather highbrow assertion of a woman in his clothes taking part in a dialogue between the designer and her body, or the more basic (and unreservedly humorous) question he asks of each collection: "Okay, does she look like a freak or not?" Indeed, the most striking element was just how resolutely down-to-earth - and indeed, sometimes quite candid - Pilati's views and observations were, particularly bearing in mind this is one of the most powerful men in fashion speaking, unedited and unrehearsed, in a public forum. What other designer would admit that his motivation to design after styling for Conde Nast in the mid-eighties was looking at an outfit and saying "I think I can do better than that!"

    While such unsugared honesty is rare in fashion, what is rarer still is to come away so resolutely charmed by a designer - but "charming" indeed was the word that ricocheted around the auditorium following Pilati's all-too-early exit.

    KCD and the sunshine band

    With the gloom of winter drawing in and foreboding portents promised by every newspaper headline, I for one grab every opportunity to bury my head in the sand and celebrate glorious excess - and, with garments glittering like the proverbial festive bauble the KCD press day provided ample opportunity. Packed with four-figure price tags and more razzle dazzle than a pre-Black Monday Jean Louis Scherrer collection, Balmain has been offering an antidote to economic woes for nigh-on three years under new blood Christophe Decarnin - and apparently, that's exactly what the doctor ordered. Next spring continues in his established vein: somewhat removed from the chic but staid style of Balmain past, Decarnin's taste is always a un peu 'le rock' and accordingly there was more glitz in this line-up than a Spice Girls reunion tour. Frogged military jackets had a touch of Billie Jean to them, while asymmetric evening frocks billowing at the back and sliced crotch-short at the front caused one frock watcher to quip "sooo Stephanie Seymour's wedding dress in November Rain!" (I'm not entirely sure if she meant that as a compliment or an insult). Lace, diamante, chain-mail, studs and crystals were layered with gusto on slick, sharp silhouettes built around strong, broad shoulders, defined waist and narrow thigh-gripping skirts. While not everybody will understand or appreciate his flash, trash and somewhat crass reinvention of the Balmain legacy, it's impossible to deny the chutzpah that Decarnin brings to this somewhat faded label, and accordingly his rack was undoubtedly the most plundered. For me, a close second was Zac Posen's collection - garnering mixed reviews in New York, Posen's workmanship withstood closer inspection, pintucked, crystal-embroidered, printed and chiffon-strewn. His striking satin corsets had shades of Horst P. Horst: underpinnings though they may be, they stand up by themselves both aesthetically and physically, stuffed as they were with bombast to fill out Posen's equally bombastic tailoring. Whether padding and cinching women into oyster-coloured silk-satin corsets and dressing them up in arcane costume is entirely in truck with the concerns of the increasingly bleak modern world, however, remains to be seen. But they provide a pretty diversion nonetheless.

    Day I

    ...And lo, there was light! Or something to similar effect, as we are currently setting up our stark, severe white studio in West London for the first day of Nick Knight's shoot for V57. Our model Lily Donaldson is being groomed courtesy of Val, Sam and Marian and we are awaiting Nick's imminent arrival. Of course, when all the action starts on set we'll be streaming video and audio live, alongside edited highlights, features and interviews documenting this three-day fashion spectacle as it unfolds.

      For me, as a blogger trying to express thoughts about fashion without being directly involved, this provides great help. These times, when young bloggers have so much power, I find it important that www.somewhere.com there's information too, not just must-haves and random opinions

      I'm glad you like them tor - to be frank, I always love getting my hands on the amazing items Jonathon Kaye procures for each shoot, and especially getting the chance to see them through his eyes as opposed to through a catwalk edit.
      I think it was Marcus Werner Hed who called me a 'Fashion Trainspotter' on this shoot - and it's true. I would probably be unhealthily obsessed with something else if I wasn't in fashion, but I'm incredibly lucky that clothes are both what I love and what I get to deal with every single day. And it's really great that I get to share this, in some way, with everyone else.
      Anyway, enough from me. Glad I wasn't too 'fashion theory' hardcore!

    Lily on set!

    After having my own moment filming our first highlight to introduce the project in front of Nick's camera, I was quite happy to hand over the reins to the professionals - and Lily is of course working the first of Jonathan Kaye's looks like the star she is. Before the shoot, Nick talked about approximating the creamy porcelain skin of high Renaissance portraiture to contrast with the austere, severe elegance of the clothing. Accordingly Sam McKnight, Val Garland and Marian Newman went to work, bleaching Lily's eyebrows, buffing her hands to marbled sheen and tousling her locks into a thick, flowing mane straight out of a Tintoretto anointment. The end result alongside those sleek chic clothes? Something like the immaculate Babe Paley meets Titian's Immaculate Conception. What a modern vision.

      can't imagine anyone in the industry would allow Nick to put a Tintoretto female physique in front of the camera.
      it'd be nice if our friends at showstudio turned the camera around from the models to the equiptment, just for one day.
      have the model film Nick walk us through his tool shed.

    With Lily working our final look, our last video highlight of the day has been edited and uploaded for your viewing pleasure - starring the exoskeletal S/S 2009 Alexander McQueen pleated jacket and jumpsuit I so admired in Paris (and finally got the chance to all but rip apart at the seams under my intense scrutiny).

      Hi Bozhidar,
      There are quite a few things it could be, and it's impossible for us to tell which it is from our end. You could check the following:
      * You have the latest version of QuickTime installed ( http://www.apple.com/quicktime ). Some older version of quicktime won't work.
      * Your computer is relatively fast (less than 2 years old is a good marker for this). You need a fast computer to decode the video stream we're sending out.
      * Your internet connection is at least 1Mbps DSL/Cable modem. A slow, or shared connection, won't be able to sustain the data from our server.
      * You aren't running any firewall software that may block connections to our streaming server, or there aren't any upstream limitations on your internet usage: some company networks and ISPS block streaming video.
      The other thing is, that if you are a long way away from our server then it may just be the internet routing isn't handling it. Where in the world are you connecting from?
      If all this is good it may just be that you are trying to connect when our server is maxed out: We've got a lot of viewers, and limited capacity, alas.
      All the best,

    Karla Otto Press Day

    Relocated to spacious Georgian premises just off Saville Row mere days before their press presentations, the Karla Otto girls recounted that their neighbours seem to think they are some kind of high-level luxury boutique judging by the rails of clothes rolling in and out of the doors. And with good reason. Representing the likes of Marni, Valentino and Viktor and Rolf, Karla Otto's stellar client list would make enviable stock for any store. But despite the wonderful wares offered by so many labels, for me Karla Otto was essentially a one-brand boutique: I only had eyes for Loewe. Which, I have a sinking feeling, will rapidly populate my dreams - and wardrobe - and deplete my bank balance accordingly. Inspired by late seventies Parisian Proto-Punk Nightclub Le Palace, by way of the rather more bourgeoise recording career of Princess Stephanie of Monaco, Loewe was indeed the label everyone was buzzing about. Designed by Stuart Vevers - former accessory mastermind at Mulberry, Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta (you get the picture) - with a little help from his friends Katie Hillier, Jonathan Kelsey and Katie Grand, the collection oozes the sophisticated continental polish one might readily expect from the Spanish skin supremo, albeit with decided touch of London irony. Everyone harks on about dark times acoming, but the sight of a ten thousand pound skirt embroidered with solid gold thread (alongside a neat matching nautical jacket) seemed to banish Dow Jones woes to the back-burner. The exciting thing about these clothes was their sheer, unapologetic luxury: an undeniably seductive alternative to the inoffensive and quiet clothes proffered by so many others. From shoulderpadded sheer blouses to button through skirts, ostrich-suede trench coats and some of the most delightfully vulgar shoes ever created, the collection managed to keep a tongue firmly in cheek, while still offering clothes and accessories that could be stripped of all traces of dowdy cool and viewed simply as rather outre examples of insanely high-level luxury. It is difficult, perhaps, to concieve of a woman (besides the aforementioned HRH herself circa 1984) who would buy completely into such a glossed-out, pumped-up high octane femininity. The Dynasty days of women taking baths in full make-up and catfighting in fountains are, sadly, long passed. At the same time, such intricate, exquisite workmanship coupled with a confident, authoritive aesthetic statement will always (hopefully) find a willing and knowing customer base. Following two seasons of static shows, Vever's first Loewe womenswear show is scheduled for next season. Breath is decidedly bated and waiting lists will be filling up fast.

    Louis Vuitton Press Day

    A slice of Parisian pomp in the centre of London proffered by an American may seem somewhat incongruous, but with Marc Jacobs' ever-changing collections for Louis Vuitton, the only thing to expect is the unexpected. Edith Piaf trickled from speakers to set the mood for Jacobs' spring celebration of French fancy: ostrich-strewn shimmy skirts, embroidered taffeta cocktail frocks, braided forties suiting and, of course, bags and bags of bags. This season, Vuitton's main export are trimmed with gold cording, lined in snakeskin and hung with African totems by way of Josephine Baker's 20s Montparnasse Revue, in quilted monogram or faux-naif leopard-print. The latter print, developed during Jacobs' first collaboration with the late, great Stephen Sprouse in 2000, also gave rise to an ajoining room and complimentary collection, reviving Sprouse's seminal, sell-out neon graffiti for the house. A vision Jacobs and Sprouse discussed before his demise, this room - and collection - is something of an homage to the New Wave designer whose immense talent was never quite matched by business acumen. Fortuituously, this latest reprise comes just in time for January's Dietch Gallery exhibition of Sprouse's work alongside a new monograph exploring his ouvre - fittingly enough, considering the mutually beneficial collaboration between the house and the Sprouse, this tome will also come with a limited-edition Vuitton cover. With Sprouse's day-glo wares displayed under a blacklight (fab for the clothes but, alas, less than flattering for us) and the cool, crisp menswear displayed in a suitably pared-down space next to the Champs-meets-Congo celebration of Parisian exoticism, you were given a concise, precise 360-degree overview into the many facets of Vuitton's luxury goods behemoth that fairly made your head spin. My favourite piece? The classic monogrammed trunk specially designed to house a veritable slab of finest beluga caviar alongside all the acoutrements to devour it. Excessive, yes, but all the more fabulous for it.

    Hats off to British Fashion!

    Many lament that fashion is one big backslap, but with London Fashion Week shrinking to four days (if only for one season) and many Britpack designers still shivering on the bread line (or there abouts), the opportunity to sound one's own horn and trumpet the creative power of British fashion should be seized at every opportunity. Last night's British Fashion Awards were a prime opportunity to highlight Great Britain's truly great fashion stars, and it didn't disappoint. A relatively recent return to the London Fashion schedule, former head girl of "London's Junior Style Mafia" Luella Bartley is in danger of becoming something of a national institution, scopping up the top prize of British Designer of the Year, while Christopher Bailey of Burberry once again secured the crown for best menswear. Alongside these two major prizes, this season saw the first of Swarovski's 'Emerging Talent' prizes, for accessories and ready-to-wear, intended to support and nurture new designers establishing themselves in the market. In their inaugural year, these titles were respectively bestowed upon shoe supremo Nicholas Kirkwood, and Louise Goldin, whose convoluted, conceptual and compelling knits have been stunning fashion week audiences for four seasons. Model of the Year went to our Fashion DJs and Fantasia star Jourdan Dunn, while the evening's award for outstanding achievement went to that international design powerhouse (and SHOWstudio favourite) Stephen Jones. The award is fitting tribute for Jones, a milliner whose unique, exquisite confections have topped the collections of talent as diverse as John Galliano, Comme des Garcons and Claude Montana, managing to perfectly compliment the clothes and yet still maintain the unmistakable imprint of Mr Jones' genius. On the back of his scent launch during September's London Fashion Week, and with his Victoria and Albert exhibition Hats: An Anthology just around the corner, this award is timely acknowledgment of Jones' immense and continuing contribution to the international fashion stage and a championing of truly outstanding British design ingenuity.

    MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA: Open House!

    Please enable JavaScript to view this content.

    Slideshow of Margiela Shop Launch. Photographs by Antonio Silva.

    On the back of our own Make Up Your Mind Maison Martin Margiela marathon, last night marked the inauguration of the house's new London flagship - characteristically, with the lowest-key fanfare possible. That's not to say the Margiela team did anything by halves: floors were strewn with confetti in the form of white paper discs (emptied straight from a hole-punch), white helium-filled balloons clustered overhead and surreal white candyfloss was served on the street outside, while tabi-toed 'footprints' guided guests into this latest sanctum of conceptual chic.

    The word "new" was very much on the tip of everyone's tongues, as the space was very much a new departure for Maison Martin Margiela, outfitted with an interior crafted entirely from futuristic flashed glass (transparent at one angle, opaque at another) and shiny shiny metallic silver flooring. Of course, as always with Margiela, this "new" is created with elements of the old: in this instance, the very new glass walls were designed to showcase and preserve the existing decor of 22 Bruton Place, revealed by stripping back the fake walls and ceilings of the former furniture shop's interior, installed in the 1980s. As such original features including distressed layers of stucco and paint, tarnished radiator grilles and indeed even the kitchen sink are boxed behind glass like museum exhibits, alongside acres of mirror seemingly inspired by Margiela's "Glitterball" embroidery and used for display-cases and glass-fronted vitrines. The trademark "Whites" of Margiela spaces throughout the world seem to have been eschewed, only visible in changing rooms, the occasional calico-shrouded chair and the lab-coated sales assistants. Perhaps that was part of the problem. Although the idiosyncratic nooks and crannies of the glass-sandwiched space was very much in keeping with the label's ethos, the overall effect was clean, slick and - dare we say it - commercial, words which seem anathema to Margiela's always-idiosyncratic approach to fashion. Maybe this was inevitable: moving from the much-loved but often-missed Bruton Place 'premises' (without window displays or even signage) to a true 'shop' (glass frontage and all) is always going to seem like a step into the mainstream and while showing and selling Margiela's work to a wider public is no bad thing, a shop that grabs attention to quite this degree seems somewhat out-of-kilter.

    Any reservations aside, the party was wonderful, guests turned out in force and Margiela's parting gift was easily the best of the year: a football scarf in soft grey and white emblazoned with MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA 2008. A team, it seems, that can always rally unwavering support for every venture.

    MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA: Talking heads... without the heads!

    Please enable JavaScript to view this content.

    In line with the ever-enigmatic Mr Margiela himself, last night had a gently - but emphatically - enforced "no face" policy when it came to photography, leading to much innovation (and perhaps frustration) on the part of the press in attendance. Luckily, we arrived early and were able to snag both Maison Martin Margiela's press representative and one of the in-house architects who worked on the design of the store to give their views on the move around the corner to Bruton Street - although, of course, no faces will be shown...

    New Fashion Film Launched!

    Our latest SHOWstudio fashion short is something of an in-house production - literally, as Jez Tozer shot his Chrysalis short and the accompanying 'We Came Through' editorial for January's Dazed Japan within the white confines of SHOWstudio itself. Not that this comes across, of course, in the final images of both film and shoot: indeed, the aesthetics of both are characterised by an airy lightness - inspired, Jez explains, by the five stages of a love affair and reflected in stylist Robbie Spencer's choice of the softest and most fragile pieces from the season's collections. The resulting short pans out in slow-motion, the action slowly and delicately unfolding much like a butterfly's wings when first taking flight. A tantalising widwinter's glimpse into the sunny white light of next spring.

    New Year, New Home: SHOWstudio is on the move!

    A new year is always a time for change, renewal and growth - and for 2009, SHOWstudio has decided to do nothing by halves. We've had our fingers, toes and everything inbetween crossed for the better part of two months but now the news is official: SHOWstudio is moving! Yesterday gave the team our first chance to rummage around our new digs, situated in the establishment heart of Mayfair, and we were mightily impressed, not to mention a little excited. Over the next month or so, you'll see the not-so-fascinating process of us packing up our worldly goods and bidding farewell to Ironmonger Row, the East End and the place SHOWstudio has called home since its inception in 2000. As of yet, the precise coordinates and some of the exciting and unexpected particulars of our new home remain a secret, but the above photographs may give a sneaky hint as to what to expect on the SHOWstudio webcams when we have officially relocated in early spring.
