Friday Fashion Film: Givenchy Fall/Winter 2014

Fashion is a chasing business: just when you feel you’re in the right time zone – summer is finally here! – the big fashion brands are already trying to seduce you into thinking September thoughts.
In their new Fall campaign, fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott capture Givenchy’s Fall Winter 2014 collection, starring Alessio Pozzi, Isabelle Huppert, Jamie Bochert, Julia Nobis, Kendall Jenner, Mariacarla Boscono, Peter Brant and Veroniek Gielkens.
And while our sunlotion, sunglasses and silly summer read is still in our totes, we can’t help but secretly long for dark evenings, fine wine and leaves turning brown, yellow and red. So sit back and enjoy this 31 seconds of autumn delight… and after that, make sure you enjoy the sunny day ahead of you. [EH]

Wow! Erykah Badu for Givenchy

Eryha Badu for Givenchy

When I was about 19, I’d religiously sing along with her major hit Tyrone. Now, 15 years later, it’s not her golden voice that strikes me, but her fierce look and strong physique: yes ma’am, 42 year old neo-soulsinger Erykah Badu is the new face of Givenchy’s Spring 2014 collection, a line which celebrates  Asian and African influences.
She was chosen by Riccardo Tisci himself, creative director at the 61 year old fashion house. How that happened? He called her one day and asked if she’d be interested. And she said yes.
“She’s an icon, come on!” Tisci said. “She is one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life. She’s got such a good sense of proportion, of colors.”
Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot the campaign, and here’s a first look on their magic work. Like! [EH]
