Inspired by ancient crumbling architecture, dark and eerie literature, and damp forgotten crypts.
Moss and decay.
Dust and soot.
The velvet darkness of night and all that it swallows.
“Frasse Johansson, the 11-year-old son of Acne’s Creative Director Jonny, shows that boys are no longer afraid to wear heels and waist-enhancing pink coats. Blunt-fringed Frasse was keen to be a part of his dad’s latest campaign, as shot by photographer Viviane Sassen. “I’ve seen this new generation’s attitude to fashion where the cut, the shape and the character of the garment is the crucial thing, rather than seeking approval from society or to follow set norms,” Jonny Johansson explained. “I immediately pictured Frasse, since he embodies this new breed to me. I asked him and I’m happy that he wanted to be a part of the campaign.”
This "new breed” is a slew of cool young kids who are happy to embrace androgyny, and who find their poster boy in Jaden Smith, who attended prom in a dress and once joked on Twitter, “Went To TopShop To Buy Some Girl Clothes, I Mean ‘Clothes.’” The imagery for the autumn/winter 15 campaign will be on billboards in New York, London, Paris and Hong Kong and the collection will be on sale from 10th September.”
The actress Audrey Hepburn photographed by Bob Willoughby at the Studios de Boulogne, located on Avenue Jean-Baptiste-Clément, in Boulogne-Billancourt, a commune in the western suburbs of Paris (France), during a break in the filming of “Paris - When It Sizzles”, in August 1962.
Audrey was wearing:
Sleeveless blouse: Givenchy (of white silk linen with detail of lateral vents, part of a three-piece with a suit of soft wool in a beautiful shade of pea green, collarless jacket with ¾ sleeves in the raglan style, single-breasted with buttons of resin in the same color, and skirt slightly in A-line, with a pleat in front and in back, and detail of two flaps, creating the illusion of two fake pockets, both pieces lined with silk shantung in the same shade, created specially for the wardrobe of her character Gabrielle Simpson).
Notes: Her hairstyle (called “Imperial chignon“) was created by Alexandre de Paris and done by Dean Cole, and her makeup was done by Frank McCoy.
