I know it’s been a while since the 2nd Fashion in Film festival came to Bristol but I felt it was time to share what I saw there.
My favorites were the short films, Marnie’s Handbag which was comprised from clips of over 50 films (I must watch every one of these!); Then there was The Library Kills by Platform 13 which was made of images found in the platform 13 library, telling a story of murder.
The feature length films were:
The Bird with the Crystal Plumage
A hilarious 70′s film with a PVC villain
The 10th Victim
In the near future, big wars are avoided by giving individuals with violent tendencies a chance to kill in “The Big Hunt”
My favourite feature length, as it came with a live accompaniment that was composed just for us. For those of you who don’t know it, it is a 1920′s silent film about the Parisienne Underworld.
I broke my ‘NO SHOPPING’ rule on a major scale today. I couldn’t help myself, especially when I thought that this item would actually be perfect to take to Paris.
The garment in question is this beautiful handmade shag coat from Deep in Vogue on Etsy.
I also bought the faux fur shawl to match, as the items look so good together. I can’t wait to wrap up, I’m so excited!
At least i’m leaving myself enough time to make up my money again… Erk!
There are so many pictures I wanted to put in the last post that I thought it would be better if I dedicated a whole post to Sandra Backlund herself. Especially as the pictures from before were way back in 2007. So, prepare for this picture heavy eye candy post.
Walking past this ridiculously large ad in the window of United Colours of Benetton today made me feel so warm and snug, even in the icey cold blast that was coming at me down the high street. Besides the fact that I love this picture, (it’s so cute and colourful!), it got me thinking, I have always disliked knitwear. I always found it grannyish and not chic enough, but it sure takes a cold winter to change your mind! I absolutely love it now, can’t get enough of it, want to layer up ten jumpers and cardigans at once!
Karl Lagerfeld was on Radio 4′s Today Show this morning interviewed at his studio in Paris.
They talked about unaffordable handbags, tackling obesity before the size zero, cosmetic surgery and the predictable fur topic. Karl seemed very defensive but then with all these serious subjects I think it’s easy to be misunderstood or misinterpreted by press and media.
I could genuinely listen to Karl talk all day shame the interview was so short.
