Sigrid Agren: Perfume Nymph



Super model Sigrid Agren is mythical in a short film by Santiago & Mauricio.


The Supermodel Channels Her Inner Deity for Santiago & Mauricio’s Feverish Film

“I imagined myself as a surreal creature: a kind of fairy who could move through space with elegance, almost taking flight with every step,” says Sigrid Agren of her mythological role in a pulsating short from sibling directors Santiago & Mauricio. The pair cast the French-Swedish model in a vintage Rodarte gown, and describe the film as a “moving human painting,” taking visual cues from William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Mannerist art, and the work of the Pre-Raphaelites. Agren, who has just walked the FW14 runways for Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci and has fronted campaigns for Céline, Chloé and Prada, used a trampoline to assist her leaps—showering the set with glitter in the process. The title, Sillage, originated as a term used by perfumers to describe a scented trail from a fragrance wearer: “Scent is one of the most powerful and primitive of senses as it is directly connected to our inner animal,” muse the directors and regular NOWNESS contributors, whose piece marks our fourth anniversary. “It’s something that hangs in the air intangibly, and just as you begin to get a fix on it, it’s gone.”

Giorgio Moroder Lays Out Donna Summers Orgasmic Recording Session


Legendary producer Giorgio Moroder is giving us the behind the scenes magic on his ehrophic and orgasmic recording of Donna Summer's "Love To Love You" recording session back in 1975 via his Facebook today.


Just to make one thing clear about how the record was done: Donna was lying on the ground, we dimmed the lights, I could barely see her and she could barely see me behind the booth, then she started to moan, I let the tape run and it was just one take.


One take is all she needed and boy when you listen to the full 17 minute track by the end of it your gonna need a ciggie!


 

Naomi Campbell Makes Her Fall 2014 Runway Debut at Philipp Plein


'Cow Girl' Naomi Campbell has no age when it comes to doing what she does best - The Naomi Campbell walk!


While ’90s supe Naomi Campbell is far from retired, actual runway appearances from her are few and far between. Usually, she reserves them for special occasions, like one of Marc Jacobs’ spectacular Louis Vuitton shows (RIP), or Versace’s couture outing last summer.

This season, she made her runway comeback at young German designer Philipp Plein’s fall 2014 show in Milan Sunday evening, which was…unexpected. Plein is known for tapping big names — Lindsay Lohan starred in one of his campaigns, shot by Terry Richardson; Grace Jones performed at one of his shows and Alek Wek walked his runway (which was comprised entirely of black models) last season.

And while these celebrity appearances and spectacles have tended to make headlines, Plein’s clothes have not. He tends to favor a sporty, clubby look with a lot of studs. This season, for a collection Plein literally said was inspired by Dallas (Ring a bell?), the designer staged fire explosions, as well as a performance by Rita Ora. Campbell et al walked the runway in cowboy hats, distressed jeans and bedazzled cowboy boots. Suffice it to say, it was not all about the clothes.

So why, aside from money, did Campbell choose to walk for Plein? She starred in a campaign for the designer in 2009, so perhaps the two struck up a friendship. And we’re sure Campbell, who has been outspoken about the issue, was supportive of Plein’s decision last season to cast only black models.

The appearance has left of wondering if this is the last we’ll see of Campbell this Fashion Month. Think she’ll show up in Paris? - via fashionista.com

Robyn And Zhala Perform At Sweden's Grammis


Robyn took to Sweden's Grammis stage (the equivalent to Grammy Awards) to introduce her newest label mate, Zhala with the track "Prophet" off Z's upcoming EP. The performance takes a familiar setting as it mimics Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" music video with even that creepy older man moping the floor. 

The track is a dark wave/techno puncher that starts off hard then slowly relaxes but quickly comes in for the punch. Its intense and we are loving it!

Ashish’s Light-Up Platform Sneakers Are Coming to a Topshop Near You



In the 90's LA Lights were all the rage but lets fast forward back to 2014 because theres a new light up show in town for the older folks!


If you found yourself whimpering with jealousy upon viewing the Instagram video Lily Allen posted after the Ashish show in London on Monday (below) — showing the pop star fawning over a pair of fresh-off-the-runway light-up sneaks — you’re in for a treat: The U.K.-based label has just announced it’s doing another collaboration with Topshop, and those L.A. Lights-esque Buffalo platforms are part of it.

Launching in May, the upcoming Ashish x Topshop collection will “embody the world of camera-facing celebrities on holiday, relaxing and partying,” according to a release — which leaves quite a lot of questions, aside from, of course, what said celebs are apparently wearing on their feet.

As per designer Ashish Gupta, “This is going to be the biggest project we have done together and also marks 10 years of my creative partnership with [Topshop].”

Between these club kid-worthy kicks and that annoyingly well-guarded Kate Moss collection coming in April, 2014 is shaping up to be an excellent year for Topshop collabos. -fashionista.com


Even Lily Allens got the fad in check...
