Merry Christmas


A woman named Grace retires with her two children to a mansion on Jersey (the Channel Islands), towards the end of the Second World War (1945), where she's waiting for her husband to come back from battle. The children have a disease which means they cannot be touched by direct sunlight without being hurt in some way. They will live alone there with oppressive, strange and almost religious rules, until she needs to hire a group of servants for them. Their arrival will accidentally begin to break the rules with unexpected consequences.

Walking in Fabrizio Viti Shoes

Step back in time to 1944, following World War II when due to a shortage of resources, the Haute Couture fashion houses of Paris created the Thêatre de la Mode. Imagine a spectacle of fashion in miniature, designed specifically for dolls but with all the exquisite detail and perfection of the regular collections.

Similarly, the shoe department at Louis Vuitton is inextricably connected to the sphere of dolls. Exactly the same workshop in Fiesso d'Artico, Italy, where the Louis Vuitton shoe collections are created is entrusted with the task of fabricating the parallel miniature versions for Fabrizio Viti’s private doll collection. The attention to detail is striking and in this short stop motion animation, his dolls and shoes come to life in another inspiring spectacle.

Permanent Ink

Internationally renowned tattooist Mo Coppoletta divulges the personal significances of being inked in this intricate profile by filmmaker Ryan Hope. Owner of influential London parlor A Family Business, Coppoletta has turned his dedication into a lifestyle, making international pilgrimages to be tattooed by those at the pinnacle of the craft. “For me the key to a brilliant documentary is to tell it through a brilliant character,” says Hope. “Mo has an amazing technique and dedication, he is an absolute purist. His energy and his style are beautiful.” Today’s short is an exclusive extract from Hope’s documentary Skin, which follows five skin-art collectors on their journey to be tattooed with designs created by major contemporary artists Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Raymond Pettibon, Jake and Dinos Chapman, and Richard Prince. Originally commissioned to accompany a Hedi Slimane photo shoot featuring the contemporary artists and collectors for Dasha Zhukova's Garage magazine, Hope redeveloped the original concept. “It seemed more interesting to tell the subject's story, rather than that of the artists themselves,” he says.

Ginzburg jewelry

"Life is big, but I like my jewelry even bigger"

This sentence perfectly captures Liat Ginzburg, her outlook on life, passion for jewelry, and unique, bold and fun-filled designs. Her daring statement pieces with their abundant use of color and electrifying style have quickly made her well-known across Israel.

Liat`s lines swept the Israeli fashion scene with stylists, journalists and celebrities alike clamoring to wear and feature her designs. Demand for her pieces has been rapidly growing ever since, with local fashion opinion leaders describing Liat Ginzburg as "the most promising and interesting jewelry and accessories designer in Israel".

The designs express a contemporary view on the 90`s fashion and club scene, and are characterized by bold colorfulness and blunt, “disharmonic” combinations. Her influences range from the night life scene, through her career researching and teaching about art, and all the way to her poem writing and art photography.

The jewelry pieces are made from vintage elements from the 70`s and the 80`s, which Liat collects on her travels in streets and markets around the world, as well various plastic, perspex, rubber and wood components. The pieces are handcrafted and come in limited edition, due to the rarity of these elements.

Liat GInzburg is now starting to become known internationally. Her designs have been showcased in Pret-A-Porter Paris The Box and Craft Boston, and featured in Grazia Paris, Vogue Italy and on Trinny and Susannah`s TV show and web. Her collections can be found in prestigious shops in Israel and in selected European stores.

Strike the Pose

Supermodel, TV personality and newly published author Tyra Banks stars as the body-popping, face-pulling subject of Marcus Gaab’s new fashion short for the latest issue of I Love You Magazine. Transformed into an empowered jitterbug with flat-top hair, yolk-yellow eye shadow and an unashamedly 80s wardrobe, Banks danced spontaneously and made off-the-cuff emotive declarations of love (and hate!) in the low Los Angeles light. “I just told her to perform, do her thing and to stop when she felt like,” says Gaab. “But she didn’t stop, she kept on voguing. There was no rehearsal; she invented the whole thing while we were there.” Best known as the sassy and energetic host of guilty pleasure America’s Next Top Model and her self-titled chat show that ended in 2009, beneath the caricature Banks is a shrewd business woman, running a successful production company, attending Harvard Business School, and boasting a built-in brand that eclipses most ex-supermodels. “When I was a little girl and went to Disneyland, I didn’t know that all this was from Walt Disney,” said Banks, revealing her surprising idol. “That’s what I want to be. Me being behind the scenes, the business woman, creating new stars, products, projects.”

Peter Andrew

"I was drawn to these structures because they are easily overlooked and yet ubiquitous in most western cities. Everyday cars flow over these highway junctions like the concrete arteries of city’s cardiovascular system. I love having the chance to watch them moving while I am shooting from above. I ask the viewer to closely examine the traffic, terrain, and surrounding architecture in the images. My interest is in observing the differences seen between them. Some are slick and chaotic while others appear chipped-up and old but at the same time neat and symmetrical. This is an ongoing series that will soon feature the highway stacks of the State of Texas."

A Homage to the Mountains

MYKITA & Moncler both stand for innovative and unique products of the highest quality, coupled with traditionalist brand philosophies. These shared values inspired the two companies to join forces in a project which aims to explore new and untapped territories in the eyewear market.

In July 1954 Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni became the first men to conquer the second highest mountain in the world (K2). Equipped with oxygen, climbing spikes, mountaineer goggles and specially made down jackets by Moncler, the Italians reached the summit. Harking back to the origins of the former outfitter of Alpine expeditions, the collaboration resulted in two models whose material selection and design both take into account what were already key factors among mountaineers back then: modern 21st century sports goggles have to be light, durable and adjustable.

A homage to the mountain and its conquerors was created in the form of the two models, LINO and ACHILLE, which are suitable both for downhill runs and also as classic sunglasses for everyday use – they are sporty as well as the perfect everyday accessory. The frames are inspired by the look of 1950s Alpine goggles, which featured round lenses in metal rims with leather side pieces for ultimate protection against the light.

ACHILLE, with its straight top line and broad frame is the more avant-garde model of the pair, a retro-futuristic new look. LINO’s sweeping top line and slim frame make this model a modern counterpart to the glacier snow glasses of yesteryear. The swept-back frame edge in both unisex models reflects the look of that era; the original leather sections
on the sides and bridge to protect against the glare are today revisited via the flared frames.

A critical factor for the design process was the new material MYLON, developed and patented by MYKITA after years of research. The polyamide-based material is being used in eyewear production for the first time and displays the features of the desired attributes: light, extremely durable and individually adjustable to the wearer are the key advantages of this new material.

Red and blue are a throwback to the first Moncler down coats that were originally sold in those colours in the early 1960s. Both models are available in the colours Red/Red flash mirror, Blue/Blue flash mirror as well as in a classic Black/Black flash mirror, in each case with mirrored lenses in the same colour or alternatively with solid grey-tinted lenses. The frames are fitted with mineral glass lenses from traditional Italian manufacturer Barberini, boasting excellent durability and clarity of vision.

All lenses reveal the MYKITA & Moncler logo when breathed on. An anti-fog finish on the inside of the lenses plus an anti-scratch outer coating make these spectacles a top-calibre sporting companion. The glasses come with a padded sleeping bag style carry pouch for easy transport in addition to a black glasses case and box.

The models comprising the MYKITA & Moncler collaboration are available by Mid December 2011 only at
MYKITA shops and Moncler boutiques worldwide.
