John Galliano´s wonderful S/S 11 collection for Dior is now promoted via the new Ad Campaign. Unlike the Fashionshow with its Nautic Charme the campaign by Steven Meisel featuring Karlie Kloss is more in a late 1950ies Pin Up Style. A great collection for sure, but a star photographer and a Top Model are not always a guarantee for a great campaign.
Moncler Gamme Bleu Uomo SS/11
Its' a real excitement watching the Moncler SS/2011 collection. Straight, bold, cocky and with the exact dosage of sportiness. The main colors going through the collection are straight greys with blue, white and red accompanied by patterns of illustrated bicycles.
The Collection was presented in the "Velodromo Vigorelli" stadium in Milan at the probably longest catwalk of the year. Watch the video when the models enter the stadium while driving sport bicycles, being dressed in the cool bike patterned "meggings" (man legging), and awesome rain parkas. This line represents a colorful symbiosis of bikesport and "gangsterness" and hopefully next year it will give a pinch of style to the Tour de France cyclists.
Milan Vukmirovic, creative designer of Trussardi 1911 created a new line of bags in military design which are exclusively sold at The Corner.

Enjoy.
By constantly enlarging their market and product range, Asos just updated their system. In the steps of Amazon they offer a new functionality which is called "Marketplace" that allows emerging designers to sell their own collections or anyone to redistribute unused or vintage items. The main idea is to recycle, discover and spread good fashion.
The Marketplace is a serious differentiator in quality and style from the overcrowded and mom's populated Etsy shops and much more refined than Googles Boutiques. So act fast, collect your vintage clothes and self made creations and use the chance to have your own Asos driven boutique.

The color of the Year by Pantone
Like every year Pantone promotes its color of the year. For 2011 they gave this special attribute to "Honeysuckle", PANTONE 18-2120. “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the PANTONE Color Institute®.
In our forecast for the upcoming SS/11 season we also see this color, especially in John Gallianos collections (his own brand and for Dior) and those of Marc Jacobs & Valentino. In contrast to PANTONE we forsee it only as one tone of the color palette for SS/11 but not as the leading color for 2011. To check out all the favorite colors for the season click here.
