    Read Lou Stoppard's reports on the Paris collections!

    The verdict is in! Our own editor Lou Stoppard has been attending the Spring/Summer 2015 menswear collections in Paris, and she’s written critiques of the shows, all available on the Collections page. So far, Stoppard has reviewed shows from day one including Carven, Walter van Beirendonck, and Raf Simons.

    Of Raf Simons, which created a big stir by forcing spectators to stand, Stoppard writes: ‘The lack of rows, coupled with the lack of catwalk- models simply weaved their way through us following rough duct tape guidelines- create an odd sense of intimacy, that same frisson and excitement that comes from any crowded room… as if it wasn’t enough to take our seating away, Simons also made photography near impossible by filling the space with dark, unsettling red lint. For a crowd that loves nothing more than a swift Instagram snap, this was a bold move’

    Gosha Rubchinskiy panel available on demand!

    We kicked off the Paris Spring/Summer 2015 menswear collections with an absorbing live review of the Gosha Rubchinskiy show - but if you missed them, worry not, we now have the panel available to watch on demand!

    The panel consisted of resident chair Daryoush Haj-Najafi, writer and ‘Russian expert’ Anastasiia Fedorova, art director Ben Kelway, and MACHINE-A founder Stavros Karelis. The discussion centered around Russia and Russian fashion designers, with Haj-Najafi emphasising Rubchinskiy's unique place in the market, pointing out that ‘most Russian fashion designers are just selling to princesses, right?’. The conversation turned to the difficulty of building a brand without becoming mainstream, as was reiterated in our celebrity question, this time from SHOWstudio fashion consultant Calum Knight

    Stay tuned for more panels this week, and keep checking the Collections page for more live coverage and behind-the-scenes-action!

    Kate Moss talks Lucian Freud in the next Subjective

    Today we are launching the next Subjective, a series of interviews conducted by Nick Knight to explore the history of contemporary fashion photography as told from the subjects’ perspectives. This week’s Subjective interview is Kate Moss discussing her experience of being immortalised in a painting by Lucian Freud. 

    The painting depicts a nude Moss lounging with her legs resting apart, her head laying on her left arm. Moss became pregnant some time after beginning to sit for Freud, so as the painting took nine months to complete, the final image shows Moss’ stomach to bulge out slightly; ‘He stopped painting me at five months, so I just look fat!’. While she speaks fondly of the process, she admits she wasn’t a fan of the result, nor was Freud, interestingly. She says of the experience, 'he taught me discipline, because I could never be late!'

    Watch the candid interview now, and stay tuned for more from this unique series!

The panel finished off with a celebrity question from Diesel creative director Nicola Formichetti, who asked them what they look for when reviewing a show: ‘Spectacle? Wearability? Coolness?’
