CommedesGarçonsRTW2019 spring

She has a place. But where?

Rei Kawakubo is at a creative crossroads. The designer told us in a statement that it was a variety of declarations that were sent by e-mail before her Saturday show. A woman usually makes conversations on her runway. This is an extraordinary letter. Most of us think her confidence, her work, and her art are unwavering.

Kawakubo wrote before ten seasons that she changed the direction of her Commedes Garçons show to see how much she could “making strong clothes, even to the point where the clothes became abstract.” She has decided that this method does not Then the new one: “I am looking for the next step, what is the next step. But I can’t find it.”

This program is about Kawakubo’s search, whether it is creative or female. Therefore, it feels very personal. In the “Somewhere” of the “West Side Story” of the soundtrack, the first model appeared, her abdomen looked pregnant, and her black wire jumpsuit was cut with a horizontal zigzag to show her abdomen. She and all models wore white hair on a messy working day ponytail, indicating that the burden of being a woman and a creator is lifelong and hard. You must constantly create and find your location somewhere.

The theme of pregnancy continues until the baby’s buttocks become globular protrusions on the hips and back, clearly mentioning Kawakubo’s groundbreaking collection of the spring of 1997, until now, the liner has broken through the “skin” underneath the clothes exposed – tight Clothing logo, floral “tattoo” and newsprint. In this context, the logo on Kawakubo’s beautiful Nike sneakers is not registered as a merchandiser, but as a self-declaration, Kawakubo asserts, “My creation is like me.”

All of this is very exciting and has some special points of influence. Halfway through, two model chains appeared – women’s sha?? Creative expression? expect? Imposing by yourself or outside? Near the end, in the soundtrack, Tom Waits’s “Tom Traubert’s Blues (Waltzing Mathilda)” suddenly stopped. “I begged you to stab me… you buried the dagger.”

Understatement, this is not the case. Kawakubo wrote in her e-mail that “promoting when groping in the dark” is a risk. However, she chose to exhibit at Écoledes Beaux-Arts’PalaisdesÉtudes, which was installed under a wide skylight on a bright white runway. It happens to be a beautiful blue sky. There is hope.

Coronation Street suggests that Henry Newton will really fall for Gemma winter

Coronation Street fans will not know if Henry Newton can really fall for Gemma Winter next week.

Last Friday’s Corrie double bill showed that Henry was only betting on Gemma’s date, and the audience was shocked, despite the early hope that Gemma would eventually find her Mr Right.

In next week’s episode, Gemma (Dolly Rose Campbell) still did not notice Henry’s ulterior motives because she tried to plan a birthday party for him.

Gemma brought a surprise Newton & Ridley theme party to Henry in the return of the Rangers, which is the nod of the bar and the winery’s long history.

Even though Henry just pretended to like Gemma, he was really touched when he saw that she had brought so much trouble to him.

Henry even proudly wore his sailor costume, as Gemma hoped, to enter the spirit of the occasion correctly.

When the scene is aired, the audience will definitely guess whether Henry can grow into a true Gemma, even though he initially hates intent.

Does Gemma’s gesture of goodwill allow Henry to look at her with a new look, or will she continue to use her as his shameful bet?

The golden rules for using animal print in the office

Remember when wearing leopard, viper or tiger print clothes was in bad taste? Those times were left behind because for several years designers, brands, celebrities and street style queens have taught us that animal print can be a super chic print. And this season they arrive to seize your closet … even in the office!

Of course, like all excesses, abuse of this exotic pattern can have lethal consequences on your image, but if you follow these rules, you can look sophisticated and you will see that it is a very appropriate option to take to the office.

1. The neutral tones are the best friends of the animal print (black, camel, white and gray).

2. A dark monochromatic look is enhanced if you use a leopard or other exotic accessory (bag, belt, scarf).

3. If the garment protagonist of your outfit is animal print (a dress or pants), try that the rest of your accessories are a sober tone.

4. As an exception to the previous rule, you can add a touch of striking color to your accessories, as long as your clothes are of a classic cut (like a trench coat or a straight silhouette dress).

5. If you opt for a dress in animal print, try that the cut of this one is loose or vaporous to look more ladylike.

6. It is worth wearing a fitted cut of garments with animal print, as long as they are not too low or one or two sizes smaller than your actual size.

7. Use animal print with classic office garments: trench coat, pointy pumps or tote bag.

8. The skirts with this print look extremely chic with sober complements in dark tones.

9. A total black look with skinny jeans and flats looks great with an animal print coat (and it’s perfect to be chic even on a casual Friday).

10. The most important rule: Do not use more than one garment of animal print in your outfit. If it’s accessories, two can still work. But more than three pieces with this type of print look exaggerated, especially for the office.

Looks like no more than your all-black wardrobe clothing concept for this Halloween

Looks like no more than your all-black wardrobe clothing concept for this Halloween

We have all failed to get it on Halloween costumes, maybe twice, and for some of us, maybe not every year. Halloween is as bad as Wednesday (such as this year’s situation), especially. Mid-week Halloween usually means that the party can fall before the weekend or after the weekend. This level of hesitation opens the bleak door to the costume arrangement. Don’t be the last person trying to throw it on the sheets and call it the night.
But with the existence of clothing choices (a sexy maid? Really?), you can’t be blamed for pushing it off. Our brains only design a pleasing little dress every few years. This time, we are skipping the clothing shopping trip and taking a more reasonable (read: easier) route, one that utilizes our own wardrobe. Since our three-quarters of the closet is made up of something black in some way, we are using what we know and have to make this Halloween our best and mediocre. From classic works like Adams on Wednesday to more timely characters, such as the American horror story: George’s Witch, these ideas finally embrace your affinity for the soft wardrobe.
There are a lot of products out there – some people will say too much. At Refinery29, we will help you understand this overwhelming world. All of our market choices are independently selected and planned by the editorial team, but if you purchase something that we link to our website, Refinery29 may receive a commission.

Don’t forget this step of your Halloween costume

Nothing hurts more than the moment you walk into the Halloween party. A friend gives you a quick time, frowns and asks you what to wear. That person hits your body like a punch, especially when you spend a few weeks tracking an authentic red satin dress (which is not cheap), your hair loosely curls and even makes me On the Bieber logo is a icing on the cake, you think it is the perfect Selena Gomez costume.
In order to withstand any horrible doubts this year, consider raising your celebrity costume to a whole new level of credibility – up to the nails. Prior to this, we have zoomed in on the guides in the hands of our favorite A-listers to get an idea of how to achieve each of their iconic nail styles. So, whether you need to sit down and get a file and some nude colors, or invest in a gel extension like Ariana Grande, you need to know exactly how to complete your outfit.

‘Panther’ fashion designer celebrates in retrospective

For more than 30 years, the creation of fashion designer Ruth E. Carter has brought the African-American experience to the big screen, from the 19th-century “Amistad” slave ship to the “doing the right thing” in Brooklyn in the 1980s. The land of non-liberal Wakanda is located in the “Black Panther”. Now, she brings her work to Pittsburgh and presents a new exhibition called “Heroes & Sheroes: Ruth E. Carter’s Art and Influence in Black Cinema”.

The show recently opened at Senator John Heinz’s historic center, exhibiting more than 40 out of nine movies and continuing until December 2.

Carter said in a recent telephone interview: “I have been thinking about reviewing for a while, I really like Pittsburgh, so this seems to be a comfortable place to test the waters of the exhibition.”

Since Spike Lee hired her as a “Daze School Costume Designer” in the early 1980s, Carter has transformed more than 50 films for the design of theatre companies and dance companies. They are not only cooperating with more than a dozen movies.

She also won two Oscar-winning best fashion design nominations, first in 1993 Lee’s “Malcolm X” – which made her the first nominated African-American in the category – and the history of Steven Spielberg in 1998 The slave ship drama “Amistad”. She was also nominated for the Emmy Award for the “root” in 2016.

The exhibition will celebrate her rich career and showcase sketches and film clips as well as costumes in the film, including “Amistad”, “Sparkle”, “What is the relationship between love and it”, “The Butler”, “Malcolm X”, “Selma, “do the right thing,” and of course the “black panther.”

“I think fashion design is a bit mysterious to people, and it’s an opportunity to understand fashion designers as artists and storytellers,” Carter said. “In my 35 years of dressing, I have found that my creative process and the movies I have made have narratives and sounds. These films have been lined up to tell the story of African-Americans in this country.”

Halloween costumes for deaf women are ridiculous offenses, so please stop

Halloween is coming. Many of us may already be planning costumes for #Halloweekend and figure out that we are doing solo, with partners or teams. Planning needs to consider the Halloween style you want: Do you want more things? Still practical? Still sexy? Of course, every piece of clothing will have a different reaction. The latter may be accompanied by people’s Halloween costumes.
Unfortunately, if you wear sexy Halloween costumes, people sometimes make their own satirical comments based on your clothing choices. Choosing a sexy nurse, cat, pop star or anything else can really invite you to make a lot of rude comments on your sex life. People may say that your outfit is “slutty” or suggest something to you based on your outfit.

But in fact, it is 2018. When will people stop humiliating the swearing of women? Moreover, because of their wearing, making assumptions about anyone’s sexual life is ridiculous. In addition, even if people wearing sexy clothes are sexually active, this is not a bad thing. Why can’t people just live to make life? If someone has a positive sex life, that’s fine. This is actually not a person’s business, but their own business, so making any form of assumption about their personality is actually disgusting. So, yes, choosing a sexy Halloween costume definitely has no sex about anyone (of course!). But this does not stop some people from acting like you are a bad person, because you are showing some skin.

In addition, sexy clothing does not necessarily indicate a person’s taste. Many Halloween costumes designed for women are designed to be tight, short or exposed. Simply choosing what they can use can make a person feel ashamed? Why do people judge individual women based on clothing choices rather than questioning clothing companies that mainly produce clothing? There are other factors that explain why someone might wear more inspiring clothing, such as cost and accessibility. Maybe that person forgot the plan, the last few pieces of the Halloween store are more inspiring, or they have to scale down. So!

Although there are some main bastards that always have something to say, if you want to choose a more sexy Halloween costume, be sure to continue. Of course, you don’t need me to tell you to do this, but a little reminder does not hurt. This holiday is for dressing up, eating candy and all-round ghosts. Indulge in any outfit you want to wear. If people want to be bitter and mean you have a good time, then maybe they will be deceived and not treated on October 31st.

The Costumes of the Museum of the Americas has launched a new exhibition, coloring book

The costumes of the Deanport Park Museum of America has launched the first of a series of coloring books to complement its latest exhibition “Respect the Past, Coloring the Future”.

The Fiesta Mexicana coloring book and exhibition showcases 11 Mexican costumes as well as Mexico’s most popular national costumes, Charro and China’s Poblana, representing Mexico and Distrito Federal.

“By studying their authentic clothing, you can learn a lot about culture,” says Museum Costume Chairman Cristina Tijerina, who leads the coloring book project. Coloring books about authentic costumes in Mexico, “But they just don’t meet our needs, so we made our own. We want them to be real,” she said.

This book is illustrated by the Brownsville artist Don Breeden, which is reminiscent of the annual song and dance performances of school children held during the Charo Day at Sam Memorial Stadium.

Each page on the center has a smaller version of the garment, and Tijerina is precisely and carefully colored according to the actual costumes that appear in the exhibition.

“Our mission is to share the culture and history that is evident in these costumes,” said Karen Ray, chairman of the museum’s board of directors. The clothing of the Museum of the Americas is located in the Children’s Museum of Brownsville, on the right.

One of the goals of the project is to involve children. Ray said that the coloring book will be sold at the entrance to the museum for $5, enough to recover the cost.

Women say that the fifth-grade social studies curriculum includes local culture and clothing. The design of the exhibition and coloring book is carried out at the same time. The museum is managed by a volunteer committee and most of its members are former teachers.

A poster-sized study guide that provides details about each local garment, incorporated into the exhibition, and includes a display case for Native American clothing and dresses. The study guide is for teachers who want to use the museum as a teaching resource. The museum includes more than 600 pieces from Mexico and the Americas, some of which are ready for group travel.

The museum entrance fee is $2, but it is free on Sundays.

“We hope that people in Brownsville come here to enjoy what we have,” Ray said. “We want it to work for all economic backgrounds,” she said of the free Sunday admission.

The museum will hold a grand exhibition at 5:30 pm. On September 17, Breeden will sign a color book on the scene with entertainment, botanical gardens and murals, and will hold a sweepstakes for the original “Viejitos” prints signed by Breeden. The donation of C. Fount Ray made the Fiesta Mexicana coloring book project possible.

Future coloring books are planned in other Mexican states, Central and South America and the Caribbean.

Shazam’s director talks about the tricky nature of superhero costume design

Careful fans may have noticed Shazam’s suit, and you know that Shazam has changed slightly between early images, trailers and newly released marketing materials. This is obviously how it develops.

Shazam’s director, David F. Sandberg, was asked by a recent Reddit fan about a recent picture: Why does the color change? Sandberg showed the level of usability that many directors could not see (honestly, to be honest) and pointed out the complexity of superhero costume design and Shazam’s clothing is still in progress.

He said:

Making a suit is hard. Just like drawing in the room, you can look at the small sample all day, but you won’t really see the effect until you’re done. Since I decided to change the fabric at a very late time and didn’t have time to test as much as possible, in some lights (especially daylight), the color of the finished suit didn’t look as I expected. I think we only need to adjust it in the post. Unfortunately, the first image released did not complete any post-production. This is correct because we put the trailer together. I think that since the photo appeared there, maybe we shouldn’t deviate too far in the trailer. It can be confusing.

This picture is closer to my goal, but it is still a work in progress and we will see our final result. No image (or trailer) also has a finished bolt effect (it won’t be an extreme effect or anything, but it’s more than just a simple glow).

Superhero suits are very important and sometimes the most controversial part of their films. Finding clothing that conveys the core aesthetics of the character will also be almost impossible to work in the real world of the movie. Look at all the arrangements of Spider-Man costumes in his live-action movie.

Sandberg offers a good insight into how this process works in the production of these films, just like everything else in the movie, it seems to be a matter of detail. Optimize, iterate and optimize until it’s done.

Shazam, the hero starring Zachary Levi, was released on April 5, 2019.
