WWD Vs.Vogue

Skiing-in-iran03

Vogue:


Iran is known for its historical cities and gorgeous Islamic art, but much less for its other great source of pride: mountains. In all four corners of Tehran, they rise in endless clusters, green and brown ridges that turn white in winter and, unbeknownst to many Westerners, conceal stunning ski resorts.



WWD:


Maybe Vogue should just stick to New York, Paris, London and Milan?

In a story published on Vogue.com Wednesday entitled: “Could Tehran (Yes, Tehran) Be the Next Aspen?, writer Laurence Cornet gives Westerners an inside look at the “stunning” ski resorts nestled in the “endless clusters” of the mountains of Iran.

...

Although no one could fault Cornet for his florid descriptions, he forgot to mention a key point: The slopes he’s referring to are the very mountains that have been rumored to be a locus for missile production under former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Alexander Wang Collaborates with Poltrona Frau on a Capsule Collection of Lounge Furniture

ALEXANDER WANG X POLTRONA FRAU 07sm

Alexander Wang:


New York, NY – Alexander Wang and Poltrona Frau team up to create a limited edition oflounge furniture pieces, combining Poltrona Frau’s expertise in fine, luxurious hand-crafted design and Alexander Wang’s sensibility of elevated ease. The collection consists of two Bean Bag-style seats and a Trunk Bar, which together create an intimate “Hang Out” space, a concept that originates from Wang’s irreverent approach to luxury and produces an intriguing juxtaposition of casual comfort and refined elegance.

Creatively reinterpreting the bean bag chair, the lounge chairs reflect the style’s typically slouchy body while simultaneously lending structure and a monolithic shape. The sumptuous black upholstery is complimented by a geometric, polished bronze-plated steel base. In keeping with Poltrona Frau’s and Wang’s appreciation of details, the use of materials in this collection is key. For this Made-in-Italy furniture, Wang selected Poltrona Frau’s matte black leather and shearling for the chairs. Poltrona Frau is renowned for its skills in leather work, and offers here the luxurious Pelle Frau® Soul leather. Soul is amongst the finest quality full-grain leather that has been carefully selected with an eye for natural irregularities that add a sense of raw beauty. This rich leather grain eschews surface finishing resulting in a velvety texture and fullness of color. The portable Trunk Bar comes in chic matte black shagreen, completed with polished steel edging, custom hinge details and small recessed steel wheels for easy manoeuvrability. The interior is lined in black suede with polished steel edging. The shelves are designed to accommodate various sized mini-bar glasses, bottles and cocktail accessories. It as a side table, when closed, or remain open to allow a view inside the mini bar.


$8,800 for the beanbag and $18,500 for the trunk.

Bust Magazine Feb/March 2015

Just a thought; I'm curious if the rise in obesity over the years correlates with our society's interest in "thin" models, and rejection of "plus" models. The subconscious mind plays wonder: We see "fat" people around us, we seek a thinner world.

Looking at the below stats, somewhere around 1980 overweight  started to go up, with an obesity increase around the 1993 time frame. Waif model Kate Moss discovered when? 1988, and who ushered in the Heroin chic look in 1993.

Style.com: From Sneakers to Suits: Designer Alexander Schaper on His Transition From Adidas to Filippa K



Aexander Schaper formerly worked for the Adidas Fashion Group. In August 2014, Schaper joined Filippa K Man as its senior menswear designer, and today he showed his first collection for the brand.

What did you aim to achieve when you took on the senior designer role at Filippa K Man?

My aim has been to add a little bit more of an attitude to Filippa K Man; a true contemporary design, with a focus on quality and functionality; and a classic base of colors where the tones and hues are what is important for the overall look. Men like fashion to be easy and functional. It’s all about the total look of layering, and I like our design to come from that belief.
