MIU MIU: SPRING/SUMMER 14 AD CAMPAIGN BAG DEBUTS IN STORE
We’ve been hankering for the exact look that Miu Miu’s S/S 14 campaign projects for AGES now. Well, since it made its glossy way into quarterly’s, billboards and the like at the beginning of the year. Just what is the look? You may well ask. It might be hard to define at a glimpse- what with the ensemble cast, and varied near Technicolor locations, but therein lies the hint. Hollywood. Not old Hollywood in fact, but a super bright future of Hollywood moment, that sort of gives a nod to the golden days. Though in reality we may not wield the same power in Tinseltown as Elizabeth Olsen, Elle Fanning and Lupita Nyong’o-who have a throwback kind of integrity about them (no flashing your gusset whilst exiting a limo for this lot) we can bloody well wield their handbags. Available at Miu Miu stores now.
The former creative director of Chanel Make-up has taken the helm of Dior Make-up with immediate effect. Philips held the position at Chanel from 2008 to February of last year- a role described by Vogue as being “one of the most coveted jobs in cosmetics”. Now with the addition of Dior to his CV, we reckon that Philips is to the beauty industry what Eve Muirhead is to British curling: an absolute hero. Congratulations Peter, from all of us here at Ten.
If the sight or smell of amazing food causes us to salivate, what’s the equivalent when for shoes and bags? Is it a warm fuzzy feeling based in one’s abdomen? Is it a heavy sigh of longing? Or is it a small shudder of ecstasy? Whatever it is, we experienced it when watching this video. It’s like the high fashion equivalent to an M&S advert. You can almost hear a husky voice breathing, “These are not just accessories…” Tantalising, no?
COMME DES GARÇONS SHIRT: COLLABORATION WITH SUPREME
My, look at those polka dots. You can almost hear Yayoi Kusama’s murmur of approval. Comme des Garçons SHIRT and Supreme have knocked their heads together and come out with a collection of caps and shirts. The result is cool. But then, what else would you expect from two brands that are totally cool in their own right? Now we’ve got the theme tune from that nineties children’s show Polka Dot Shorts running through our heads. Cheers for that, Comme and Supreme.
News has hit Ten Towers that Victoria’s Secrets are to open a beauty and accessories store in mainland China later this year. This is brilliant news for all Chinese VS fans. Unfortunately the shop won’t be selling the diamond encrusted delicates that we’ve come to associate with the brand. (Shame.) But, on the plus, there will be a wide selection of fragrances, beauty products and accessories. Tai hao le! (Wonderful!)
Pop the kettle on, curl up on the sofa and watch this amazing documentary about the late Lee McQueen commissioned by the BBC in 2011. It’s an incredible insight into the life and work of such an extraordinary designer. Perfect Sunday afternoon: sorted.
