@YSL/Hedi/Saint Laurent's First Campaign is a Semi-Erotic Slideshow [NSFW]

Saint Laurent's Introduction Campaign features KATI NESHER + CHRISTOPHER OWENS (that guy that used to be in the band GIRLS, not to be confused with the HBO show unless you want to piss Christopher off) in a series of beautifully haunting black and white photographs that the peeps over at SL/YSL put together in a slideshow. Tons of black, tons of sexy vibes and tons of nip slips.

If everything else fails, just remember this - sex always sells.

Hedi Slimane - I'm intrigued. Let's see what else you got up your sleeve and what else the YSL in-house PR team can fathom.

Ski Style for your Winter Getaway

If you are planning a winter holiday to somewhere snowy and mountainous, you will of course have to wrap up warm. But that does not mean that you have to forgo fashion. Even on a skiing or snowboarding holiday you can look fantastic, as there are some great garments on the market for men and women in winter time. These pieces will keep you cosy and warm on piste, as you are flying down an Alpine mountainside or jumping ski jumps – James Bond style. And there are some warm and super-stylish items that will work fabulously once evening arrives and you want to enjoy some warming beverages by the fire in your chalet.

En piste fashion
Fashion and function sometimes clash – especially when it comes to winter and you have to be wrapped up warm to keep the elements off. However, thankfully these days there are ski and snowboard clothes that are as stylish as they are snug. Here are a few examples:

Oakley Motility Light Snow Jacket – a quality jacket from famous extreme sports brand, Oakley. This jacket is attractive in blue, black and white and great at keeping you protected from the snow and icy wind.
North Face Amongstit Jacket – getting ‘Amongstit’ on the piste while looking great with this bold blue retro style snow jacket, with parka fur-lined hood for extra warmth.
Vans Landed Insulated Snowboard Pants – if you want to make an impression on the slopes these snowboard/ski pants will help. In checked green and blue they are bold and bright and look great against the brilliant white snow.

Chalet style
After a hard day en piste you will no doubt feel like some relaxation in your chalet, hotel or in some local bars and restaurants. Of course you will want to look the part for this and there are a few pieces you should invest in for this purpose:

Festive knitwear – on a winter break you should take the usual jeans, t-shirts and other items you would wear at home, but up in a snowy resort you will be very grateful for your knitwear. To look great on icy evenings go for festive patterns with snowflakes and reindeer and top off with a chunky knit scarf – you’ll need it.
Big boots – guys and girls should invest in some fur-lined boots  to protect you from the snow drifts outside and because they will look great as you sit content by a roaring open fire with a glass of something warming.
Hats – retain your heat as you mill about in the evening on your ski holiday with a snug hat. Faux fur is a great choice as it looks glamorous and is very warm, plus there are such stylish hats available for guys and girls.

For quality ski-wear, check out Blackleaf ski jackets.Wrap up and stay warm while looking great on your winter break!

Ann Sofie Maden / COMEFORBREAKFAST Spring/Summer 2013 Presentation

Photo credit:  Vivien Killilea/Getty Images

Well, Ann Sofie Madsen and duo COMEFORBREAKFAST killed it at the GenArt presentation. Other designers included, Amanda Lew Kee, Chloe comme Parris, Gretchen Jones and accessory designer A-morir. Funny/sad thing is that most of these folks aren't even from New York! Ann Sofie Madsen and CFB are from Copenhagen and Italy respectively. 

This is why I'm obsessed with non-main-four fashion weeks. Cause a lot of really cool talent everywhere else!  

Good show GenArt.

Really love the simple hair and make-up on these models. Totally up my alley. As far as the collection itself, it's good to see that Ivana has let ago of her nostalgia for Scandinavian wallpaper from the 70s. It's kooky, it's girly and it's a whole lot of fucking retro.
