In a playful reference to how we communicate in today’s connected yet disconnected world, Lanvin Creative Director Alber Elbaz gives feedback on the brand’s new campaign via a Skype video call for their spring/summer video. The inspiration for the editorial came from Elbaz’s inability to actually be in New York City for the various shoots because of Hurricane Sandy. Lanvin continues to be a luxury fashion house with a mischievous sense of humour.

Audaciously…Brilliantly…Eternally… CHANEL and the Diamond. Love this fabulous short film that summarises the history of Gabrielle Chanel’s use of the diamonds in a modern way – simplifying jewellery settings and rendering the previous styles out of date “I want jewels that slip between the fingers like a ribbon”.

Miu Miu will premiere the fourth and final instalment of its Women’s Tales film series, during Venice Film Festival’s opening day, August 30.

The story was written and directed by Massy Tadjedin and will be screened alongside the other instalments from the brand’s mini-movie saga that celebrates female filmmakers.

Directed by the founder and editor-in-chief of Garage magazine, Dasha Zhukova, and starring actress Chloë Sevigny and fashion writer Derek Blasberg, this 1920’s short silent film forms part of the Fashion Fetish film season on “Once Upon A Dress” explores the importance of the right gown in this case being current season Prada, complete with knife edge pleats and spaghetti-straps – and not the right man in the quest for happiness. Sevigny plays a hapless ingenue who arrives at a glittering soiree and immediately falls in love with a dress hanging from the wall. Cue all sorts of hazy daydreams in which Blasberg – a dapper roaring 20s gentleman in tux and tails – whisks her off her feet.
