      We love... Tux Lux


      The Tluxe tux and YSL's Le Smoking look.

      This week, we’re watching Anna Wintour’s Obama campaign and perusing Karl Lagerfeld’s new book, Little Black Jacket while wearing our tuxedo-inspired Chelsea shirt. As the great Karl himself says, “Who can live without black clothes?". Personally we find the Chelsea a great way to add a little tux lux to a relaxed, casual look without resorting to the full tailored number a la YSL’s original Le Smoking (pictured above). We’ve styled it with our Raffles trousers but you can team yours with a pair of high waist, wide-leg pants for a touch of Bianca Jagger, or add dark skinny jeans, heels and a blazer in white or a contrast colour for a little hot, new, now.

      Watch me... girls on film

      One of the first bands to mix fashion models and music, Duran Duran are back (did they every go away?) with a fun ten-minute super model extravaganza, featuring all the glamour, and the original supers of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Yep, Naomi, Helena, Eva and Cindy, all play lead roles in the new music video, which has been styled to the hilt in leather, studs and crystal by Dolce and Gabbana. Pure kitsch, and pure fun.

      While we’re talking girls on film, watch out for L’Amour Fou, the feature film about Yves Saint Laurent’s life from the point of view of his partner, Pierre Bergé. And then there’s the season’s top Youtube-friendly fashion shorts, which are hitting hyper drive since the success of Lanvin’s flick featuring a dancing Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann.

      Our personal favourites so far would have to be Spike Jonze’s stop-motion animation for Olympia Le-Tan’s book-clutch bags, set in a Parisian bookstore, and for a taste of the sublime, SHOWstudio and filmmakers Tell No One’s collaboration for AnOther Magazine titled Dynamic Blooms (pictured at top), which features a post-modern mix of contemporary dance, abstract flowers and beautiful, beautiful clothing. Enjoy.
