Let’s spend a (worthy) word about – “This Must Be The Only Fantasy”

Fantastic Rodarte.

Despite what it may seems at first glance, this short movie is not some sort of deleted scene of Legend, nor Labirinth. It can’t even be an unseen scene of The Lord of the Rings…it is way too sparkly and “dreamy” in a wonderful 80s’ style to be Peter Jackson’s movie. Elijah Wood is in there though…

“This Must Be The Only Fantasy” actually is the latest, exciting collaboration between fashion house Rodarte, and filmmaker Todd Cole, produced by The Creators Project. Inspired by Rodarte’s Spring Summer 2013 collection, which explored the same topics as in the movie, this is an open tribute to 80s fantasy role-playing games, a 13 minutes video where fantasy becomes reality and vice versa.

I must say that I am an 80s Fantasy genre, movies in particular, devoted fan: all that glittery powder, over-sprayed, backcombed (and more glittered) hair, the fake contact lenses, the overdone make-up, the blurred images, the unicorns, the naughty and beautiful fairies, the extra ugly dwarves and extra evil villain, David Bowie in white lycra tights, Tom Cruise full of glitter (glitter is the key 🙂 )…the whole lot just amazes me!

It also happens that lately my interest in Rodarte’s collections is significantly increased, especially from the last two seasons. This is why I particularly appreciated this short movie, the third one of the interesting collection of videos that Todd has done in collaboration with Rodarte, all very successful (Aanteni, 2010, The Curve Of Forgotten Things, 2011, featuring Elle Fanning).

The detail that makes the difference – Knee socks

They give me the idea of High School and College uniform, I love them because, specially on women, they add a masculine touch to a girly outfit, or they can turn your look into a cheecky, charming or sexy side depending on the length.

My favourite: plain, pastels or “earthy” colours in wool or cotton, to wear with wedges or brogues, high waisted trousers or pencil skirts.

We can say that they are just socks, after all…a small detail “covered” by the shoes. But we love details and also a pair of socks can make the difference!

It’s Fashion Weeks time!

The key word to describe the New York Fashion Week FW13/14 is “variety”. Every designer shows his own personality and taste. Let’s take the most obvious example: Alexander Wang‘s collection is based on grey shades, fluffy and boiled wool, oversized and structured garments while, as his opposite, Jeremy Scott puts on the catwalk a urban style based on comics illustrations and 90’s neon graffiti, where bright colors and “Chewbacca” furry coats and onesies are the common theme.

I like this sharp gap between different designers and their style: it helps to have a more clear view of the possibilities that we have in creating our own style.

Much appreciated the Bohemian feeling given by Organic by John Parick and Creatures Of Comfort‘s collections, Rodarte‘s touch of rock and the minimal structured jackets and coats of Proenza Schouler.

Here the selection of our NYFW –  FW13/14’s favourites.
