Tickle Me A Bit Marco Brambilla.

It’s an early start to my Thursday morning as I write this.  I’ve just finished one project  only to start another right after this post hasn’t been sent.  For those who don’t know, I’m back in school putting my sexy eyeglasses to good use, but in less than a month since the semester started I’ve been slammed with so many papers to write and projects to hand in, I’ve had barely any time to get my RomeoStyling on.  Ohh and let’s not forget it’s still a month of fashion weeks!   I write this during my hour-long break that’s being put to good use. I’m watching my new guilty pleasure, The Walking Dead, eating (of course), and also browsing my favorite fashion websites to tickle my senses.

Somehow I ended up looking at a short film I viewed last year from Marco Brambilla on Nowness.com.  Commissioned by Ferrari, the 3D kaleidoscopic video RPM, debuted at Art Basel two years ago.  New York based artist, Brambilla did share the method he used to create such a magnetic film, but right now all I see are pretty psychedelic prints every time I hit the pause button.  Go on you try!

Creative Movie Time.

It’s officially the first day of summer and Mother Nature decided to hit us hard on day one.  It’s going feel like 100 plus in temp, and for me, who has never had a good relationship with hot summer days, I’ll be spending most of my time indoors.  So I’ve decided to get the videos lined-up that can stimulate, captivate, fascinate and any other “ates” I missed.  Something productive to do while I’m inside avoiding any heated time with Mother Nature for now.

Oscar de la Renta and André Leon Talley Unveil the Influence of Spanish Dress on Haute Couture

“The prolific designer and the Vogue Contributing Editor and cult fashion personality guide NOWNESS on a personal tour of the recently opened Joaquín Sorolla and the Glory of Spanish Dress  at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute in New York. Conceived by De la Renta and curated by Leon Talley, the exhibit considers Spain’s sartorial legacy through the paintings of artist Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (1863–1923), a selection of elaborate traditional costumes, and designs by industry icons Yves Saint Laurent, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and Karl Lagerfeld. Both encouraged to pursue their respective careers in fashion by the late, influential Vogue Editor Diana Vreeland, De la Renta and Leon Talley share an extensive personal and professional history, from dalliances in the heyday of studio 54 to endless backstage exchanges during fashion shows. “They were clearly so enamored by this show and what they had created,” says Moselle. “It was evident that this was a real partnership, an exchange between truly old friends, and a shared love of fashion and Spain. I think they could have gone on talking about it forever, had there been the time.”

Talk Tuesday: Advanced Style Never Looked So Good.

I’m going to take a quote from  Confessions of a Shopaholic and change it a bit  ”When I dress up, the world gets better, and the world is better, but then it’s not, and I need to do it again.” Which fashion-minded person can’t relate to that?  

We use fashion to cope, to express ourselves, to show knowledge, power, wealth or not.  All of those, plus more are things we when we’re young and it only evolves with age.   One of my favorite videos, Advanced Style: Age and Beauty, on Nowness.com,  features women who we have to admire for their sense of style during the senior years of live.  Iris Apfel  and artist Ilona Royce Smithkin are some of the stars in the video and are also regulars on Ari Seth Cohen’s Advanced Style blog,  who’s interview accompanied the video on the website.  Here is bit of the of it from Nowness.com.

” Did anyone help to inspire the direction of Advanced Style? 
When I first moved to New York [from Seattle] I attended a screening for the documentary Hats Off about Mimi Weddell, who in her 60s became an actress and model for the likes of Louis Vuitton and Burberry. I photographed her, and her attitude and approach to style was a big influence on me and the start of the blog.

Who would you most like the chance to photograph for Advanced Style?
Richard Avedon’s 60s muse China Machado; Jane Schmitt, who featured recently in the Lanvin X H&M campaign; and Yoko Ono—to name just a few.”

The Bag Guide Video From Net-A-Porter.

My form of movie night lately has been watching reruns of All On The Line on my DVR (can’t delete the first season yet) or  browsing some of my favorite videos on Nowness.com and Showstudio.com, but after catching up on the digital magazines from Net-a-Porter.com, it looks as though I have to add  add Net-A-Porter TV to my viewing options.  Just came across this video that got me giddy, the same way I would for a action movie teaser, with surround sound!  Tissue to wipe my tears of excitement and press REPLAY to watch Chloe, Miu Miu and MCQueen duke it out.
