From Canada To Céline : Meet Rising Model Janice Alida

1200x600 (1)

Canadian model Janice Alida is our kind of woman. She went from working at Starbucks in Canada to the working the Céline runway. We caught up with the Canadian cutie to find out how she got started, her secret celebrity crush and what TV she binge watches.

How were you discovered? I sort of discovered myself. I was working at Starbucks at the time. I googled modeling agency, and Lizbell Agency was the first one that came up. I met with Liz the next day, and she signed me and had me meet with international scouts. So I moved to Paris and went after the career. Then the big business discovered me when I walked my first show, Céline. Did you have...

Tim Elkaïm and Chloe Grace Press chronicle the pieces calling out to be worn all at once for Autumn/Winter 17

In classical sculpture, the ancient Greek goddess Hecate was carved into a polycephalous being, with three heads or faces denoting the various facets of her authority over the earth, sky and sea. Here, for AnOther Magazine A/W17, Chloe Grace Press alludes to the power of Hecate through an edit of pieces which play on multiplicity; clothes and accessories incorporating double, triple and quadruple elements, all in the name of emphasis. Whether a trompe-l’œil heeled patent boot from Maison Margiela, several Chanel necklaces worn at the same time, or duplicated prints from Céline, you too can exude Hecate’s ancient strength with your sartorial choices this season,...

A Sartorial Reflection On The Colour Red For A/W17

We take a moment to mediate on the most provocative shade of all

“Red protects itself. No colour is as territorial. It stakes a claim, is on the alert against the spectrum,” said filmmaker Derek Jarman in his 1994 book Chroma: A Book of Color. The incendiary nature of the colour red has started political revolutions, indulged in pleasures of the flesh and flirted with danger in its many forms throughout the history of cinema, art and fashion alike. Hues of scarlet, crimson, vermilion and burgundy, incorporated into on-screen costume and propelled down the runway, act as telling flags to the nature of its wearer, not to mention the intention of a designer. Here, we present 16 red pieces of clothing for Autumn/Winter 2017, as...

Tracee Ellis Ross Wore Her Favorite Shirt From High School to a Polo Match

Tracee Ellis Ross is one of the more daring dressers in Hollywood, but for her latest unexpected look, she didn't have to go far to find it. Specifically, the Black-ish star dug into her closet when getting ready for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Los Angeles. Ross pulled together a look consisting of her most prized shirt from her high school years — a teal polka dot blouse — which she paired with "MY FAV CELINE PANTS ~ yet again" (as she credited them on Instagram). Ross, who put forward a more contemporary take on the iconic polka dot and wide-brimmed hat combination Julia Roberts' character wore in Pretty Woman, accessorized with a topper by Eric Javits and a clutch by Louis Vuitton. What might be...

Five Fantasy Fashion Holidays

366645
The fashion calendar dictates that Autumn/Winter collections hit stores in the deep summer months, leaving plenty of opportunity for those coveted new styles to work their way into your suitcase this holiday season. With July just around the corner, that time has almost come, and whilst chunky knitwear and heavyweight fabrications aren’t necessarily suitable for that beach break in Alicante, there will always be pieces that are – look no further than Balenciaga’s skimpy floral A/W17 dresses as a case in point. With this in mind, we turned to this season’s runways to picture where the muses behind the collections might have travelled for their own holidays. From Raf Simons’ debut at Calvin Klein, where the Belgian designer paid homage to the...

Why We Love Céline’s Instagram Account

366497
In February this year, just ahead of the unveiling of the brand’s A/W17 collection at Paris Fashion Week, we let out a collective exclamation of delight upon discovering that Céline had at long last joined the rest of the world on Instagram. This was something of a surprise, albeit a pleasant one; the house had notoriously stated that it wouldn’t move into the realm either of social media or e-commerce (the latter has been confirmed as launching imminently later this month). As creative director Phoebe Philo stated during a Vogue panel discussion in 2014: “I very much like the idea that shoppers experience a Céline product in a Céline store.” The brand’s CEO, Mario Gobbetti, recently backed up this ethos, telling the WSJ, “I...

Céline Is a Women’s Brand, But That Doesn’t Stop Men From Wearing It

Like so many fans of fashion, the stylist Megan Bowman Gray has an unabashed love of the French label Céline. “I’ve always felt that Phoebe understands women,” she says, referring to the brand’s designer since 2009, Phoebe Philo. “The fact that she’s a working woman, that she’s a mom — she makes things that make you feel strong and powerful while you’re wearing them,” she says. “She’s on a level all to herself. I’ve been a collector of hers for the last six years. I think she can do no wrong.” Gray’s husband, the film producer Hunter Gray, shares in his wife’s enthusiasm, and has amassed his own haul of choice items from the label, including some outerwear pieces — a...

The 1950s-Inspired Céline Handbag that Transcends Time

363659
Medium Clasp Handbag in Black Sleek Calfskin by Céline  Calfskin with nappa lambskin lining, 32 x 22 x 8 cm To consider the 1950s a progressive era might seem somewhat jarring, especially when it comes to the way we dress and our politics. The period is synonymous, after all, with the full-skirted femininity which preceded the following decade’s second-wave feminist revolution (during which women shed ‘lady-like’ social and sartorial constructs) – heels were high; the netting from pillbox hats would spill over half the face, drawing suggestive attention to a red mouth; handbags were to be gripped with crimson-painted fingertips. It’s quite surprising, then, that this handbag demonstrating all the features you might expect in a vintage leather accessory – from the signature 50s shape down...

Postcards From Fashion Week’s Best Venues

Fashion week is a time that can feel uniquely frenzied: as schedules become increasingly jam-packed and hoards of photographers make entering a show venue something of a challenge, it can be easy to forget that the shows themselves are often held within the world's most remarkable buildings. Take Chanel, for example: once you've navigated your way through the abundant street style photo shoots taking place outside the venue, you entered the unparalleled beauty of the Grand Palais and calm was restored – or Undercover, which took place within the historic Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild, the ultimate example of neo-Classical Parisian style. The opportunity to tour such venues is a rare treat and our photographer, Federico Ferrari, was determined to capture some...
