    Kate Moss for Topshop film and images!

    Summer seems to have finally descended across Britain - and just to get you in the mood, here is Nick Knight's latest (and terribly summery) fashion film with the always-divine Kate Moss to showcase her (you guessed it) summer collection for high-street behemoth Topshop. Floating, flimsy layers, dappled sunlight, and the tousled sun-kissed locks of Miss Moss herself are just the thing to put you in the mood for warmer weather. Whether we'll actually get more than a weekend's worth is anyone's guess, but for now enjoy this idyllic and iconic slice of fantasy British summertime.

      Kate Moss is the most beautiful woman to ever walk the face of the Earth. She just keeps getting better.

    More Mirror Mirror gallery images!

    Our ground-floor Mirror Mirror take over of Topshop Oxford Circus may have come to an end, but fear not! Our project gallery is constantly being updated with our choice picks of the best looks snapped in front of our mirror. As if that isn't enough, above is a multi-faceted image captured of Miss Katie Shillingford in action as she manned our mirror for the much-coveted Saturday night spot. Her verdict? Simply not enough sequins!

    The final day!

    The final day of our Mirror Mirror installation at Topshop Oxford Circus has begun - with Topshop kicking off proceedings at 11.30am, our first fashionist to take the reins is filmmaker and SHOWstudio.com face Ruth Hogben (pap-snapped here at our HQ on Bruton Place during her hour-long session). Right now, British Vogue's Emma Elwick is dispensing her words of wisdom, while yours truly will wave the fashion flag for SHOWstudio.com in our final two-hour session. Get down to Topshop Oxford Circus before 6pm to take part!

    Blackwhite Opening

    We've had an influx of colourful characters over the past four days to participate in our Mirror Mirror project, but in-house at SHOWstudio.com towers things have taken a turn for the monochrome. This is due not dull dressing on our behalf, however, but the latest exhibition at SHOWstudio Shop - aptly titled (wait for it...) Blackwhite, which opened to a packed crowd on Friday. Inspired by the oldest dichotomy in the fashion book, the contrast between black and white. Fashion photography is, naturally, a focal-point - Irving Penn's celebrated portrait of Lisa Fonssagrives clad in a striking harlequin dress jostles with Cecil Beaton's prints of Audrey Hepburn in the monochrome My Fair Lady number, itself contrasting with Nick Knight's controversial image of Kate Moss, inverted in the printing process to render a white Kate black. The space itself was once home to Maison Martin Margiela's UK flagship, and as befits a fashion-focussed institution such as SHOWstudio.com, garments themselves make a welcome inclusion - namely Margiela's own signature Tabi boots, and a reproduction of their first jacket from 1989, both originally created in black and then painted white. The physical centrepiece of the exhibit is, undoubtedly, Peter Saville's Fashion - a bondage bench created in white, pierced with prongs to allow corset-style lacing across each limb which Saville feels give the bench an aesthetic analogy to the fetish elements of much of contemporary fashion.

    Blackwhite is open until 19 June 2010 at SHOWstudio Shop, 1-9 Bruton Place, W1.

Get down to Topshop - it's a weekend, you have no excuse!

      I doubt anybody could quite match Ms Verhoeven or indeed Ms O Connor for style or glamour.

    Check out Mirror Mirror at Topshop Oxford Circus now!

    The action has kicked off at Topshop Oxford Circus - our Mirror Mirror project is well underway! I've already done my first hour-long stint of style commentary - typing my own pithy fashion suggestions from my own desk, to magically appear across the face of our interactive mirror on the shop floor at Topshop - as has the esteemed beauty brain behind Topshop's new make-up range Hannah Murray. At the moment Ben Reardon of i-D magazine is in the hot seat, commenting on the frills and furbelows of Topshop's loyal customers through until noon, and later today we'll have expert style advice from the Grazia magazine's Fashion Editor-at-Large Melanie Rickey, and Lady Gaga's stylist Nicola Formichetti. Hot-foot it down to Topshop Oxford Circus yourself, or simply sit back and watch as the images, and our contributors' comments are uploaded to our project gallery.

      Woah. I checked out the range in Topshop Liverpool last weekend, a couple of make up artists were more than optimistic in showing me an array of awesome bits and pieces. Get The Mirror Mirror In Liverpool.. One thats not afraid to scrutinize. YES.

    GARETH PUGH A/W 2010 - Inspirational imagery

    We're on-set once more with Ruth Hogben and Katie Shillingford for our second exclusive SHOWstudio.com fashion film shoot in as many weeks - this time alongside the stellar talents of Gareth Pugh and Raquel Zimmermann to boot! For A/W 2010 we're shooting a series of designer monographs of some of the strongest of Paris' collections - Pugh's latest being our second after last week's Celine-centric extravaganza. Once more we'll be documenting ever moment, uploading a steady stream of candid images captured throughout the day alongside blogs and tweets from our very own Olivia Marks hot on the studio floor. At the moment, Ms. Zimmermann is in make-up with Alex Box - and the above collage of Joan Crawford celluloid iconography backstage gives a few ideas as to the inspiration behind the film and make-up. Think thirties, think starkly monochrome, and think arch - and that's just the eyebrows. Hopefully there are no wire hangers on Katie's bulging rail of Pugh…

    #1: Prada Shoes and Socks

    The aim of our new Object Fetish series is to pick apart key fashion objets plucked from the latest round of international collections in minute detail. What better label to turn to than Prada - one of the few to provide that 'must-have' Zeitgeist-grabbing garb season after season, and for twenty years to boot? In our opening film of the series, and the A/W 2010 season, we turn to the endlessly inventive Miuccia Prada's latest offering, unravelling the label's covetable cable-knit wool socks and patent-leather loafers and tracing their aesthetic legacy through Prada past, present and future.

    Daphne Guinness nominated for 14th Annual 'Webby' Awards


    We're all for award-winning online filmmaking here at SHOWstudio.com, and having been the recipient of our own 'Webby' award back in 2003, we're throwing our support wholeheartedly behind Daphne Guiness, whose Mnemosyne video short is nominated for the latest round of these influential online awards from The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

    The only fashion-focussed offering - albeit lumped into a category titled 'Experimental and Weird' - Guinness' film was created with co-Director David Parker, All Day Everyday and Starworks Group, to coincide with the launch of her DAPHNE scent for Comme des Garcons. Rather than taking its name from the perfume (and hence strengthening brand associations) Mnemosyne takes its title from the Greek Goddess of memory and is intended to stand alone, 'inspired by the essence of scent’ and its power to evoke memory rather than created as advertisement for the product. Accordingly, Guinness' film contains no logos and no product shots, but instead haunting phantasmagoric swirls, luminescent colour and a suitably mythological feel set against an ambient soundtrack - as can be seen above.

    Hailed as the 'Internet's highest honour' by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international mark of distinction, honouring excellence on the Internet, including Websites, interactive advertising, online film and video, and mobile web sites. Last year's Webby Awards received nearly 10,000 entries from 60 countries worldwide.

      beautiful film , although i don't see why memories always have to be so romantic and soft. Scent evoked memories are often sudden and almost violent in the way they transport one back to a time or place unexpectedly.
      I will be voting for it for its desire to create something beautiful, and it sounds like the WEBBY awards should be a place to support such endeavors.

    CELINE A/W 2010 - It's a wrap!

    Look eight - a silk-crepe and bouclé scarf-necked frock with exquisite calfskin cuff detail (am I gushing enough?) is our final look of this two-day fashion film exclusive for SHOWstudio.com. The only not-entirely-simple task remaining is whittling several hours of footage down into the definitive and precise edit to best capture this equally definitive and precise collection. Hopefully, to be showcased on SHOWstudio.com very soon indeed. God speed!

      I sincerely hope this film gets nominated for a WEBBY award, as from what I know of Ms Hogben it will be beautiful.
