Fashionable Trailers

June 26, 2009

fashionable automobiles – an entertaining video I found thanks to i luw fashion

i love these video shorts companies are doing – like the bmw short films.  This is the new world of Web 2.0, interactive & digital marketing:  MRM Worldwide case and point.  [I just interviewed with the Seattle office – fingers crossed, God knows…time will tell, the company is Деньги]

Renault – french automaker

Follow the Laguna Coupe through Berlin, Milan, Paris and London.  A movie trailer reminiscent of a fashion advertisement as opposed to an automobile promo.  The exquisit cinematography unveils societys love with the urban.  The style of film reminds me of Paris, je t’aime.  Enjoy, Au Revoir!


I’m having trouble embedding the videos  so click on the link below:

London:  weather reminded me of Seattle, whereas the videos style was captivating. 

Milan:  The fashion capital of the world – quintessential for a fashion blog!

IDS – Designers Remix Collection

January 13, 2009

International Designer Showcase

Designer:  Charlotte Eskildsen

Country: Denmark

Collection: Ready to Wear Spring Summer 09

Scandinavian clothing line designer, Designers Remix Collection, is said to be inspired by the unpredictability of women making for an “edgy and slightly askew” style.

Recently Ms. Eskildsen was nominated as the “Best Danish Designer” by her fashion peers and received the first Dansk Fashion Award.

“My designs are for positive, sophisticated women with poise and power…I love to intermingle different design elements in a way that re-defines femininity. And to give women a new reason for feeling beautiful.”

New reason for feeling beautiful?  Don’t all new clothes do that, ladies?

Dolce & Gabbana – Cruise 09

December 30, 2008

The Quintessential fashion blog post

Dolce & Gabbana  Cruise 09

This may not be the first time you have seen these images, thus you may accuse me of being slow or behind the times. However I have been patiently holding back from posted such delight.  Sooner or later I would select D&G becuase it is more than necessary to include them on SS. 

Despite my patience it may be deemed unhealthy to be selecting photos of such optimistic weather since we in Seattle are being bombarded by snow and wind…okay a bit dramatic!!!  Yet the thought of a stylish sun-drenched cruise is beyond fantastic.  Enjoy!
