This summer is all about the flapper girl on her most glamorous appeal! Designers like Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Roberto Cavalli and John Galliano showed decorative dresses with ooze gloss for flirty party dressing. Straight lines, lower waist, and of course fringes and sequins are the key elements for the look.
In addition, Art deco graphics and embellishment gave the essence of another era to the runway. It might remind you of the Chrysler building, with the abstract geometric shapes, or even the upcoming remake of the movie “The Great Gadspy”, the 20’s inspiration is definitely something that will make the modern woman feel feminine and sexy! Enjoy some glitz and glam!
Parallel universe… to enjoy the trend!
Ever since the collaboration between Marni and H&M has been announced back in November, fans have been waiting desperately to see the first hints.And finally the time came!
Under the guidelines of famous director and fashion lover Sofia Copolla, Imogen Poots introduces us to the casual “escaping” atmosphere of Copolla. Shooted in Marrakesh, the short film reveals the atmospheric and sophisticated attitude of Marni and makes the anticpated collection even more promising.
Coppola, as a director, may have never “really done anything around fashion,” but she is, of course, a fashion fixture, style icon to many, and one of Marc Jacobs’ besties. But it turns out she’s a Marni girl, too. “I always thought [Marni] made interesting fashion and that the prints were always unusual and they really have their own look–it doesn’t look like anything else.”
The commercial is a quintessential Coppola-party: beautiful rich-looking kids (Annabelle Dexter Jones), models (Liu Wen) and assorted hot boys (actors and models Sam Hayes, Antonine Peduzzi, Nicolas Peduzzi, Charlie Klarsfeld, and Jonatan Frenck) swan about looking effortlessly cool at a party that goes from day to night. And as always with Coppola, the music choice is spot on. Bryan Ferry’s “Avalon” provides the soundtrack, cementing the sort of hazy, effortless, cool-girl vibe of this collection.
If experimenting with your clothing is not your thing, there are many other good ways to make a look interesting! Deisngners like Maison Martin Margiela, Aurelie Bidermann, Pamela Love and lots of others put unlimited imagination when they design jewelry and really make us enjoy fashion! A zippers as a bracelet, a watch bracelet as a ring, an oversize “engagement” type ring and so on, are beyong realism and super exciting and cool without being too loud… Surrealism and fashion always shared a symbiotic relationship in the past (Elsa Schiaparelli), but now it is more innovative and a lot more glamourous! We chose some of the best for you! Enjoy!

After a series of hugely successful shows, Prada once again managed to surprise us! From last falls 60’s space age to clean and chic 50’s elegance, Miuccia Prada wanted to bring to the runway some “Sweetness”. But what was the core of the collection really? Well, Italian men have two meaningful relationships in their lives: women and cars. Miuccia put the two together—women in cars—and situated them in a moment in time (maybe the last such) when the world was awash with unambiguous hope for the future, and by that we mean the 50’s.
There were many ways for Miuccia to make her point. The celluloid iconography was irresistible: B-movie roadhouse gals in bandeau tops and leather pencil skirts that had been customized by their spray-painting mechanic boyfriends; David Lynch heroines in varsity jackets and sunray pleats; rhinestone cowgirls in studded Baracutas. If the sweetness in such tough cookies was a little elusive, Miuccia also offered coats in lace or crochet in palest pink and blue and bathing suits that begged for pinup poses round the pool at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The fire graphics and the 50’s cars along with the pastel colours and the feminine silhouette really gave us a smile! Oh and, of course, don’t forget the shoes! The absolutely Whaaam shoes with literally fire on their heels symbolizing the speed of cars!
Amber Gray’s colorful, dramatic and mystical work is just stunning. Amber Gray is a genius California born living in Manhattan photographer that graduated from Harvard at age 12! Amber’s portfolio is pretty impressive. She’s not a big fan of ” dead-eyed mannequins doing robot-posses or oily bimbos pushing their boobs together or biting their pinkies”. Music and natures are her ultimate inspirations. The way she communicates concepts, stories or feelings through her photography is so inspirational.
Here in Candy Mansion, we really love her style, set, lighting and choice of models, so we decided to share them all with you! Click through our gallery for a taste of her work and visit her website to get to know her world!

It could be built on the platform of the i3, an all-electric hatchback concept due in 2013 which features a 125kW motor, a top speed of 150 km/h and an optional range extender which uses gas to ensure the it doesn’t run out of juice.
