In a surreal twist for spring, Steven Meisel recently tapped into the playground of Elsa Schiaparelli, Salvador Dalí, and possibly even Tim Burton with a dark, haunting beauty that is both ethereal and unyielding. Through the black and white, blurred, and cinematic narrative, he has crafted a tale unlike the usual editorial – something we might expect from this man who boldly blends fashion with cultural and political commentary. Thanks for Keepin’ it Surreal, Steven.

Nathaniel Goldberg, Edita Vilkeviciute, Barnyard, Wild Country, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Armani, Fendi, Burberry, Azzedine Alaia, Vogue Nippon, AnimalsFor those who lament the occasional limitation of city living (the impossible pragmatics of stabling horses on one’s terrace for example), Nathaniel Goldberg suggests a bold alternative of bringing furry and feathery companions into the elegant indoors. His “Wild Country” vision as seen among the pages of Vogue Nippon, June 2010, is both luxurious and cozy as Edita Vilkeviciute lavishes in Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Armani, and Fendi among others. A sensible solution, no?

Yes, you read that correctly and no, LVMJ is not a mistake. Tomorrow, The Musée de la Mode et du Textile will be presenting to the public “Louis Vuitton – Marc Jacobs”. It is certain to be a riveting look at the work of Louis Vuitton himself and the work of Marc Jacobs as the current artistic director for Louis Vuitton. In the words of Pamela Golbin, the curator of this exhibition: “The exhibition was a way to speak about two moments in fashion history which are crucial. With Louis it was about industrialisation and with Marc it’s about globalisation.” Both are tremendous forces of innovation and cultural influence that will continue to reverberate well into the future.
