Calvin Klein’s Underwear S/S17 Campaign Proves That Age is Just A Number

a
Calvin Klein Underwear latest campaign celebrates women all of ages ranging from 18 to 73. It captures them real women, confident in their own skin relaying sweet memories and tells tales of stolen first kisses. Filmmaker Sofia Coppola handpicked the cast featuring Kirsten Dunst, Rashida Jones, Nathalia Love, Laura Harrier, Maya Thurman-Hawke, daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, and Chase Sui Wonders, Anna Sui’s niece. Coppola wanted to move away from the typical lingerie ad by portraying the women as raw, real and cool.  Sophia noted: “I think they relate to me, and to the camera, in a different way — they’re not so much like goddesses; they’re more approachable.” Take a look at our top five short films below of the black-and-white “vignettes...

Lessons in Transformative Dressing from Muriel’s Wedding

365056
1994 Australian comedy-drama Muriel’s Wedding is every bit as bittersweetly poignant as you remember. Toni Colette stars as Muriel Heslop, a native of dead-end town Porpoise Spit with very questionable morals and dreams of one day having a fairytale wedding of her own. Swept up by her outgoing friend Rhonda, the film follows Muriel as she moves to Sydney with money stolen from her parents – questionable morals coming into play here – and changes her name to Mariel. It would be a mistake, however, to assume that the movie is all theft, fun and games. Muriel’s rollercoaster journey includes being rejected by the cruel girls she’s admired since high school, more money-thieving, helping Rhonda through cancer, and the repercussions...

Tommy Hilfiger's trip to the West Coast for its Spring see-now-buy-now collection in February felt like an inevitable pilgrimage for a brand whose first store was opened in Beverly Hills. The all American red-white-and-blue vision that has become synonymous with Tommy Hilfiger feels particularly at home in the balmy climes and palm tree-lined boulevards of the Golden State and, in a new video featuring the Spring 2017 collection, this image has been brought to life.
Watch the video below, where Tommy's roller squad take to the streets of LA for a sunny day of candy-floss eating, muscle beach-invading hijinks:

Lessons in Love and Style from This New Wave French Film

364212
The sixth and final of Éric Rohmer’s moral tales series – a set of fable-like cinematic works conceived during the midst of the 1960s sexual revolution before becoming an art house favourite in the 1970s – Love in the Afternoon (1972) is a portrayal of our problematic relationship with, well, monogamous relationships. Frédéric, a successful lawyer, is married to the lovely schoolteacher Hélène and lives a happily bourgeoisie and relatively quiet life in Paris. However, a sense of discontent stirs in his loins and Frédéric finds himself fantasising over the various women passing him by on the streets of the city, imagining a magical amulet hanging round his neck that can persuade these women to fall under an amorous spell...

Fendi has released a teaser for its upcoming featurette Girl’s Secret, starring French actress Sigrid Bouaziz. The film takes a look at the brand’s SS17 and Pre-Fall collections through the lens of Parisian director Rebecca Zlotowski, who depicts a contemporary version of Marie Antoinette on a night out with friends.

Make Love Not Walls – Diesel debut anti-division campaign

1202431
With Nike announcing their ‘Equality’ campaign earlier this week, it seems that brands are set on using the power of their platforms to challenge the world’s division. Yesterday, Diesel premiered their new campaign ‘#makelovenotwalls’, directed by esteemed fashion photographer David LaChapelle. The campaign focuses on breaking the barriers that divide us, with the metaphoric wall becoming literal as models leap across to each other. The debuting of such a powerful message comes at a time where many of us are questioning, quite frankly, just what the hell is going on in the world. Without dwelling too much on Trump and his proposed wall, we can all afford to be reminded of the importance of loving one another while aiming to banish hate and discrimination. Artistic director Nicola Formichetti explains:...
