Donatella Versace Reflects on the Death of Gianni 18 Years Later: VIDEO


The NYT pays a visit to the studio of Donatella Versace, to discuss how she keeps the brand relevant, and the loss of her brother, which she still feels deeply:

"When my brother died, and the way he died, I had to show strength. I had to show, 'we're going to do it. don't worry.' I was living my pain in public, and I couldn't show my pain, to anybody. This office, this space we're in now, reflects really me, and my emotions. The ones I don't show to anybody...Nobody believes me but I'm not a very secure person. You know, I question everything I am. My vulnerability was always hidden. I was going home and crying, but closing the room, because I didn't lose the king of fashion, which he was. In that moment, I lost my brother."

Traveling with Fashion: Into the Woods in Tenerife with Fran Otero — VIDEO


Men's fashion brand Modus Vivendi takes us on a trip to Tenerife, the largest and most populous of the seven, volcanically-formed Canary Islands of Spain, in the new campaign for its Bear Line of underwear, starring model Fran Otero and photographed by Adrian C. Martin.

MoretravelThe campaign was shot in the stunning Esperanza forest, often foggy because it is up a mountain close to the cloud zone where the moisture creates the lush green moss so prominent in the photos and video. Tenerife also boasts the third tallest volcano in the world (measured from the base on the ocean floor), Mount Teide, which is protected as a National Park and World Heritage Site. It most recently erupted in 1909 and remains active.

The Canary Islands are also a popular destination for gay and lesbian European tourists, who head there for the beautiful beaches. With this kind of natural beauty to be found, who can blame them.

Tom Ford Shares News About His Second Film: VIDEO

Tom Ford offered a few "snippets of insight" about his next film project to WWD this week, in an interview about his fall fashion show which took place last night in Los Angeles. The new film would be the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed A Single Man.

FordThough Ford won’t discuss title or plot lest he divulge secrets too early and bore himself along the way, he provides snippets of insight. He wrote the screenplay himself, finishing it in September. It’s an adaptation of a novel for which he bought the rights, not a well-known book and all the better for that. At this point at least, he has little interest in taking on material pre-loaded with audience expectations. He has changed the title and made considerable revisions to the story. As planned, the film is in two parts, the first faithful to the original material, and the second, completely new.


Unlike most directors, whose schedules and deadlines are project-based, Ford must work around an intractable fashion calendar. His narrow shooting window runs from Sept. 15 through December. If for some reason the film doesn’t come together in time, his next opportunity is the same time, next year. “I only need six weeks,” he says, noting that editing will be more flexible; he can set up a room in London. He shot A Single Man in 21 days: “I paid for it myself.”

Ford also spoke about the challenges of adapting a book for film:

“A book is a book; a film is a film. They are totally different things. Sometimes things are subtle in a book because there’s an inner monologue with the character, and turning it into a film, you don’t have that inner monologue—unless you do, which I don’t love.…You have to have something personal; you have to take what speaks to you about a book and amplify that. It’s impressionism, in a way."

Hubbies Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka Team Up for London Fog Ad Campaign

Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 12.51.20 PM

Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka are sharing more than their lives together--they've now starred in their first-ever joint ad campaign, sporting trench coats for renowned retailer London Fog.

The series of images, part of London Fog's holiday season campaign, debuted on the brand's Facebook page this week where the handsome Hollywood couple took over the banner, receiving thousands of likes and hundreds of comments, most of which are very positive. The main image prominently features the two actors' wedding bands from their high-profile marriage in September. Dari Marder, the chief marketing officer for the brand said London Fog was looking for a modern and iconic couple for the campaign and had few concerns about any potential backlash. 

"We have a smart consumer. We think they’ll get it," said Marder, in an interview with Women's Wear Daily. "We don’t think there will be an issue. I think it will play well. It’s a beautiful, powerful, intimate moment."

The print ads will appear in the December issues of fashion magazines in both the U.S. and U.K. The pair will also appear in spring ads for the London Fog in 2015, just in time for Neil's' hosting of the Oscars and David's starring in a new Broadway musical about marriage.
