    Watch our Paris Fashion Week 'Head to Head' on demand

    Our last Head to Head of the season is now available to watch on-demand.

    Creative consultant Mimma Viglezio and esteemed fashion journalist Colin McDowell chose to spotlight Miu Miu's S/S 16 show as the main topic of conversation while touching on many other Paris Fashion Week highlights including John Galliano's Maison Margiela, Louis Vuitton and the trend-defying Comme des Garçons.  

    Both McDowell and Viglezio don't hold back when it comes to revealing their true opinion, making for a truly entertaining discussion. 'Despite all the viciousness that has come out my mouth, I still get excited at the shows and I still think they're very important culturally. I think we should all try a little harder,' finished McDowell.

    Watch Nick Knight's 'Floriental' fragrance film for Comme des Garçons

    What does a flower with no scent smell like? Comme des Garçons have the answer with their new fragrance, Floriental. To celebrate the launch, the brand tapped long-time flower lover Nick Knight to create a film exploring this re-imagination.

    This time round, Comme have thrown out the formal rules of perfumery. Based on the odourless cistus flower, Floriental is unlike any other perfume. The fragrance has no definitive notes, resulting in a confusing yet intoxicating blend of sandalwood, pink pepper and plum liqueur.      

    Knight’s film reflects this untraditional disruption in the form of a flower breaking down and disappearing into nothingness. Check out the entire film and take a look at Knight’s photography book focused on all things flora and fauna.

    Nick Knight and Ffrench forthrightly discuss the power of Instagram and self publication on the internet, her role as British ambassador for YSL, the fluid nature of her creative trajectory and working with her assistant Josh Wilkins, 'I’m routine now in the way I work with Josh, [my face] ends up being the canvas and he takes a photo of it, because we can do it at 8pm when we suddenly have an idea,’ she explains.

    Tom Ford S/S 16 fashion film by Nick Knight

    Launching today, Tom Ford has joined forces with SHOWstudio’s director Nick Knight and stylist Carine Roitfeld for a new take on a fashion show.

    Deciding to forego the traditional catwalk show this season, the exclusive fashion film features Tom Ford’s S/S 16 womenswear collection. Ford's fashion show sees models dance down the runway, soundtracked by Lady Gaga's cover of Nile Rodgers and Chic's I Want Your Love. Gaga herself appears in the film alongside models Mica Arga, Lexi Bolling, Kayla Scott, Xiao Wen Ju, Valery Kaufman, Aymeline Valade, Lida Fox, Lucky Blue Smith, Alex Dunstan, David Agbodji and Tarun Nijjer.

    Ford explains: 'Having a runway show has become so much about the creation of imagery for online and social media and watching a filmed fashion show can be like watching a filmed play (which is never very satisfying). I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online.'

    Watch the film here and check out what else is happening at fashion week in our Collections page.

    Isamaya Ffrench for Christopher Shannon S/S 16

    Our Transformative series, in tandem with our Subjective project, is back. 

    This week's installment of the series, which delves behind-the-scenes of famous imagery with hairdressers, make-up artists and stylists whose work featured in the photographs, sees Isamaya Ffrench interviewed about her work for Christopher Shannon’s S/S 16 menswear show.

    Ffrench muses: 'If I can have a moment, I try to go for it. In sixty years, I’m not going to be worrying that I missed that opportunity because there will be others.'

    Tune in to the interview now and make sure you catch up with Sam McKnight's and Val Garland's episodes.

    'Screw' project by Nick Knight and Katy England

    In our latest project named Screw, Nick Knight was joined by Katy England for a photo shoot, which appeared in the A/W 15 issue of AnOther Man magazine. Titled 'Tendency of Species', the editorial is influenced by religious iconography and pin-up posters and sees models clad in Riccardo Tisci’s A/W 15 and S/S 16 menswear offerings for Givenchy.

    Inspired by the concept of gang culture, incarceration and prison wall pin-ups, Knight and England subverted this world by merging traditional, heterosexual masculinity with the unexpected and avant-garde. Models are seen spread on prison beds, portraying characters such as the pious worshipper and the work-out-obsessed body boy.

    Peruse the editorial here and check out the footage from the live shoot available on SHOWstudio now.
