    In a project spanning several years, journalist Tchkonia interviewed inluential figures in 20th and 21st century art and culture. The intimate conversations with Pierre Bergé, Rick Owens, Serge Lutens and Michelle Lamy, to name a few, cover their eventful lives and careers as well as their thoughts about three big subjects - love, money and God. She invited SHOWstudio to edit and release these unmissable videos. 

    In the first installment of the Love, Money, God series, photographer Jean-Paul Goude talks about his early artistic influences, including his ballet teacher mother and the Museum of French Colonies, as well as his collaborative and romantic relationship with musician Grace Jones. He also adresses Tchkonia's more philosophical questions; on the subject of what happiness is to him, the image-maker answers 'having an idea.'

    Miu Miu's De Djess

    There is a scene right at the end of Alice Rohrwacher’s sweet and funny film for Miu Miu’s ninth instalment of their Women’s Tales project that will strike a chord with anyone who’s ever, half-heartedly, faced a wall of cameras or even a single culprit. I won’t give it away but, “it’s the dream!” according to Rohrwacher. The power of a good dress!

    The Italian director and writer, whose second feature film, The Wonders, was awarded the Grand Prix at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, told me over cappuccinos in New York how the collaboration with the brand came to be. She asked Miu Miu – 'the right choice because of the irony, this offbeat elegance they have' - to dress her for Cannes, 'I knew I wanted to go to like a circus ringmaster or the person that trains lions! It’s a very fragile moment, no? And they imagined something for me that made me feel strong in that moment. That was the beginning.' In Venice, they asked her to make this film and while already in the Excelsior hotel that’s almost a supporting character in De Djess, she looked around and decided to make a fairy tale using what was in front of her; the paparazzi, the army of housekeepers, the dress. 'It’s completely autobiographical - I’m the dress!' she says and laughs. 'I didn’t want to tell a story and then hide the dresses inside it. I wanted to do a story with the dress and about the dress. Nothing too intellectual - we sometimes need a fairy tale in our lives.' And so the dress comes to life, like a newborn baby, and we see and, most importantly, hear everything from its perspective. 'When you’re born you don’t understand language, everything is just sound so we made up a language that’s all about sound, but it’s familiar enough like English.'

    So, what does one of the most exciting filmmakers in European cinema at the moment, make of the scarce attention being given to female directors and writers? This is Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales, after all. She is as direct and unswerving as you would hope. 'I would like it if somebody would do a series of films about male directors. People should start saying 'male' director: 'Let’s go see the last movie from this male director.' 'What do you think of this movie from this male director?' 'Do you know there is a new male director?' Words and names are important. We need to start concentrating on what’s being done instead of who’s doing it.' Well, this director, busy writing her next feature – 'ideas are like plants, you can’t completely abandon them but you can’t overwater them because they won’t grow either.' – has decided that for the screening party later that day she might just leave the circus whips behind, the lion having been tamed after all. 'Tonight', she says rather excitedly, 'I think I’ll wear a skirt!'

    Head to Head

    Tune in tomorrow for a brand new format in our expanding range of fashion week reportage. SHOWstudio regulars, creative consultant Mimma Viglezio and fashion writer Colin McDowell, will go 'head to head' in a forthright discussion of the Marc Jacobs Womenswear A/W 15 show.

    Off-setting the educational, analytical nature of our panel discussions, Head to Head provides a more hard-hitting, confrontational style of fashion reportage. Two industry insiders sit face to face in a pared back studio setting, engaging in a fast paced deabte on a selected show - one per fashion week.

    Tune in tomorrow, 20 February to watch Viglezio and McDowell debate the Marc Jacobs show live on camera at 11:00 GMT.

    McQueen: The London Years

    Stylist Katy England invited fellow McQueen friend and collaborator Nick Knight to shoot a cover story featuring rare, archive Alexander McQueen pieces for AnOther Magazine. The images are now available to a admire in our editorial gallery, and the S/S 15 issue of the magazine. Rising talent Stella Lucia (described by Knight as having ‘an incredible mixture of strength and vulnerability, a child with the power of an army’) stars on the cover sporting the exact shade of gunmetal grey skin that McQueen himself was obsessed with achieving in his and Knight's imagery.  

    Focusing primarily on pieces from the height of her close working relationship with the late designer - the ‘London years’  - England’s styling includes archive pieces from the nineties, some of which had never before been photographed for a magazine. Recognising that the clothes themselves were imbued with narrative, Knight took a simple approach to photographing them, shooting in a stripped back studio that recalled McQueen's esoteric references as well as in an empty parking lot as a nod to his East End urban roots. 

    View McQueen: The London Years now, and stay tuned for a series of films that will show off each outfit in movement and give further details about their provenence through audio commentary.

    Subjective: Kristen McMenamy on Peter Lindbergh

    The latest instalment in our Subjective model interviews, a series exploring the history of contemporary fashion photography from the model's perspective, features Kristen McMenamy recalling her experience working with photographer Peter Lindbergh on a 1993, Russian Ballet inspired editorial for Harpers Bazaar.

    In candid conversation with Nick Knight, the model covers her status as a cult model, separating her family life from her modelling career - ‘as a model I’m not going to say ‘I’m a mum, I can’t do that anymore,’’ - and being shot by Lindbergh. ‘Peter’s very good training for a model because he doesn’t tell you anything.’ McMenamy explains, ‘He just waits to take the picture until he sees it. When he sees the image he likes he’s so excited, he’s shaking.’  

    Watch the revealing interview now, and stay tuned for the next in the ongoing series.

    Peruse One Eye Girl's NYFW Illustrations
    Now up on Tumblr

    Take a look at One Eye Girl's simplistic and elegant take on New York Fashion Week's A/W 15 show. So far in his residency as our collections artist Jason WuOhne Titel, Alexander Wang and more. 

    With their signature single eye, One Eye Girl's girls are dainty and delicate. His minimal interpreation of an Ohne Titel runway look removes all elements of detail, emphising a black collar, in contrast with a 'paint splotched' take on Suno's florals and Jason Wu's deatailed furs.

    Head over to over Tumblr to view more illustrations and keep checking the Collections pages for more live coverage and behind-the-scenes action.

    Reflecting the pagan influences seen in the Spring/Summer 2015 collections, Nick Knight and Charlotte Stockdale set out to create a strange, mystical fashion story set in sacred woodlands near Stockdale's home in Basingstoke and depicting fictional satanist rituals. Playing with the believability of the still versus film, Knight shot series of photographs and put them together to create choppy, unnerving short films

    Named Aquelarre, after the place where witches held their meetings with the devil, the editorial features in the special 'artificial reality' S/S 15 issue of Garage Magazine, in which the covers and much of the content is brought to life by viewing the print magazine through the Garage Mag app. Seen through the virtual reality of a phone screen, Knight's desolate, scene-of-the-crime style photographs become nightmarish, horror movie vignettes. 

    'I liked the idea that we go to the cinema to be scared, that human beings need to be, or enjoy feeling anxiety or fear, and they'll actually pay for that. Isn't it strange that photography never really does that? It's fairly bad at delivering any emotional punch, where-as the poorest film or TV can easily reduce you to tears. I wanted this series to create fear and discomfort rather than the usual objective of a fashion editorial, which is to make you say 'Oh how beautiful,'' Knight stated.

    To further emphasise the anxiety producing viewing experience and furnish the horror with a particularly contemporary slant, SHOWstudio's digital art director Jon Emmony added fake 'malware' to two of the films. Finally artist and frequent SHOWstudio collaborator Rei Nadal matched up each film to Wikipedia links featuring urban legends and shocking true stories, blurring even more the lines between fiction and reality. This final touch cites the mass panic caused by H.G Wells' 1968 War of the Worlds broadcast, as Knight points out, 'in those days people believed the radio, now they believe Wikipedia'.

    Explore Aquelarre to experience Knight's unsettling stories, and be sure to grab your copy of Garage Magazine, available in the SHOWstudio Shop.
