    adidas Originals x SPEZIAL S/S 15

    Watch a new adidas fashion film exclusively on SHOWstudio!

    To celebrate the launch of the S/S 15 adidas Originals x SPEZIAL collection, we’re proud to present a new short film by Nick Griffiths and &SON Films. Inspired by SPEZIAL curator Gary Aspden’s own journey into adidas' archives (his starting point for the design of the range), the film tells the story of a fan’s trip from Munich to the house where Adi Dassler once lived.

    ‘For adidas fans there has always been a romanticism around the brand’s birthplace in Herzogenaurach,’ explained Aspden. ‘A young man on a homage to Adi’s villa reflects the ideology behind the adidas Originals x SPEZIAL range. A new generation inspired by the foundations of this sportswear institution.’ 

    Shot on location between Munich and Herzogenaurach, the film’s haunting score is by Atticus Ross, the Academy Award-winning composer behind the music of Gone Girl, The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    Watch the film now, and be sure to revisit adidas’ previous celebration of sportswear obsession, Sole Searching in South America.

    SHOWstudio is delighted to present Flow, a new fashion film by SHOWstudio regular Laura Falconer. A collaboration between the young filmmaker and choreographer Russell Maliphant, the dynamic film is an exploration of fashion in motion and features a piece from Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen’s Biopiracy show. As Falconer explains; ‘The fabric of Iris' dress is fascinating, the light dances across it as it moves. Working with Russell and Carys Staton (the dancer) enabled me to showcase this with energetic elegance.’

    idoll - A new fashion film

    SHOWstudio is proud to launch idoll, a new music-video-cum-fashion-film from indie pop group JYUJYU and Tokyo-based fashion designer MIYABI.

    Directed by udocorg, the darkly surreal film explores the notion of the curse (JYU) and the way youth culture is played out online. Featuring clothing is by M5YKB, MIYABI's virtual fashion label, which exists only on the web and in visuals, the styling focuses on masks as a means of representing Japanese internet culture and the secrecy and anonymity that young women toy with when posting edited 'selfies' while concealing their real identities.

    Transformative: Sam McKnight for Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld

    Our Transformative project - a running series of interviews with stylists, make-up artists and hairdressers - continues as renowned hairstylist Sam McKnight shares his experience of working with Karl Lagerfeld on Chanel runway shows. 

    Comparing photo shoots with the chaos of the runway show McKnight explains ‘You kind of relinquish lots of control at the shows, because it’s not your environment, it’s someone else’s environment.’ He reveals he gets past the challenge of creating hair styles for up to a hundred models by using wigs and hairpieces, preparing them weeks in advance and working on each model right up to the moment they walk; ‘I’m right there at the very end… I need to be the last person who touches them, much to the dismay of the show producers.’

    Watch the interview now for McKnight’s perspective on Chanel, and peruse Transformative's sister project Subjective for the model’s point of view on some of the world's most famous fashion imagery.

    This week's Subjective interview is with Sudanese supermodel Alek Wek who speaks to Nick Knight about walking for John Galliano.

    'I mean, talk about celebrating different beauty!' says Wek of Galliano's diverse casting. 'I never got to work with him and I said to my agent, 'Can I at least go see?' Before I even got on the train I got a call - 'You're booked!''

    Wek also discusses mentoring younger models, working with Pat McGrath and why the runway doesn't faze her; 'Thousands of girls want to do that show and we're getting paid to look gorgeous? I don't get nervous - unless I have dangerous shoes!'
