06.05.2013 A Week In Fashion 12.05.2013

   It is a fact that film is a great inspiration of fashion and culture, and since Gucci previewed their SS12 collection, 1920's art deco has been on the rise, with the help of the eagerly awaited film The Great Gatsby. So it is no surprise that Harrod's summer campaign  conducts a similar feel of decadence, as a nod towards Baz Luhrmann's new masterpiece. In other news, photographers and producers have been busy too, with lots of inspiring pieces of artwork catching my curious eye this week, including Karl Lagerfeld's film showcasing the beginnings of Chanel (which is entirely worth the watch despite it being a little lengthy!). And who could forget about the Met Ball 2013, with some (quite frankly) shocking outfits warn, counteracted with some absolutely stunning designs. So hope you enjoy, let me know what you think!

   This week, I seem to have tailored the post towards culture in art and design, along with some exciting news of a collaboration between one of the UK's most rebellious designers, Vivienne Westwood, who is designing the new iconic uniforms of Virgin airlines. Also the eagerly awaited H&M commercial was officially realised this week, staring Beyonce, set in the tropics of Bahamas. As well as news, this week a trend has become most prominent, with clarity and transparency taking the front row of a new space age/futuristic trend. Enjoy!
