in the meantime


while i’m waiting for a proper internet connection in my summer residence, which will lead to some changes in this blog, enjoy this kettela’s unknown picture. news: longchamp campaign was posted at tfsand she gave a decent tinteview to the telegraph (uk). everything available at tfs… and at the daria blolgs by tinsley and mm6789.

h&m vid: meta-fun & meta-irony

too bad it’s not daria’s voice!

THE DAY AFTER. i still don’t understand where this vid came from and if it’s the official summer 09 commercial. anyways, “horrible” is the word i have heard the most, but personally i find it so silly that eventually i had fun watching it. maybe mine is a meta-fun, where i just focus on daria in bed saying ‘boring‘ to that guy and then ‘time for a change’ or something like that. then i have fun watching at the difference between her sportish running style and the final scene where she’s all feminine and languishing caressing that really perfect example of 007-like masculinity called matthiew williamson. btw, i wonder if they put a 1 meter cube under his feet to make him look taller than the models!!

a metter of genres: science-fiction vs. realism

a matter of genres: science-fiction vs. realism

so for all these reasons i must have so much fun watching this video! i find it so ironic, but maybe not for the reasons it was made!!

new (?) h&m


mah… blah… i’m rather perplexe… it looks like a vogue paris editorial shot by inez & vinoodh… i have seen this kind of poses and this setting so many times… i was really expecting something different. to use a word often abused by fashionistas, that’s really boring and uninspired. it looks like it’s going to be one of her worst compaigns ever.

leather is the night

leather is the night

just one word: so darish…
again everything is so right, so right this year… well, everything but a few cavalli pics… but it’s like in this early 2009 i have seen sometihng consistent in editorials, covers and advertisments, despite variatons¬†of styling and gender playing. maybe it’s just that her body languge has become so mature and aware. maybe.
the first picture above reminds me of another shot… let me think about it. i find it amazing though. so energic, so volitive, so strong, yet so classy and delicate. magical touch.
the complete series of shots is available here. i’m not that fond of the 3rd couple of pics, but i’m loving this shooting!


little pic great pose ;-)
who’s this prince charming in heels?

a few new things to fill daria’s modeling universe today. ūüôā

first, we got this new unexpected campaign: balmain. unfortunately at¬†the moment¬†the only available image is still very small. yet, rather revealing. i bet it’s inez & vinoodh again… or not? i even wonder if the pic was shot on¬†the same day and in the same place as the isabel marant campaign. anyways, i heart a very similar rough and post-fashionist mood. still emmanuelle alt behind? and her love for daria? it would be nice to write an essay on remotion and return of the removed in alt-werbowy relationship!
so imagine a long trip along the isabel marant road to nowhere through the desert … and at the end of nowhere – in pure mitology – this dusty green place with such a tall¬†transgenetic being¬†standing in heels.¬†soundtrack¬†is a¬†slow lo-fi version of prince charming by adam and the ants.¬†how beautiful if such a minor stream could finally become the new mark of daria’s late career. instead of new dull works aiming to make her charme regular and… er…¬†commercially appealing to consumers.
from this perspective an article about¬†dormice taken from¬†fad looks interesting. daria seems to be “in talk” with them “to star in a campaign that is first accessed by portraiture”. it would be great to see her in a work by this duo that mixes so different styles, bonding classical references with a metaphisic vibe and a postmodernist dimension.
and to finish with another unexpected collaboration, even if that happens at h&m, according to daria should be in a forthcoming campaign featuring designer matthew williamson too and shot by solve sundsbo. a different photographer! look at the excellent result when he shot daria in 2003 for¬†vogue uk in the editorial¬†page (see link k on the left) clickin on ‘2003 – jump to the¬†beat‘.¬†i also wonder if he shot her for hermes fw 07 too. not sure about it at all. corrections are welcome, but certainly that editorial shows that he might know how to get darialogism out of daria… although it’s a campaign!

isabel marant s/s 09 campaign

isabel marant s/s 09 campaign

that looks like the complete series of isabel marant s/s 09 campaign, shot (again) by inez & vinoodh and styled by emmanuelle alt. as someone said at tfs, the paris mafia is back! i hope that¬†alt will take care of daria in some forthcoming issue of vogue paris too (especially after seeing the so booooring issue with lara stone whose facial expressions are less than versatile, so to say…).¬† and i also hope that she will back to shooting with some other photographer… i’m starting to miss testino! :s well, at least it’s a less obvious i&vee this time, a bit rougher.
my fave of the three remains the first one. second is difficult to judge until i see a bigger version, about the third there’s a stick effect of her legs that i don’t appreciate so much, especially compared to the muscolar slimness of the first one. in general i like it that the campaign is not focused on daria’s beauty, but on her emotional dimension. there’s something deep, not superficial, that perflectly fits daria’s interpretation. whenever i see daria into pics like those, i feel relief and think that she’s doing what she’s the best at: to embody a rent, a hole in fashion perfection. to express a kind of pain that fashion tends to remove. that’s why i also liked her pirelli sub-calendar after all. the way she does nudity is so different… and i think (again) of ‘in love’ too. but that’s for the 2008 post!
i wonder how much room fashion will leave to her for this. see cavalli campaign as a reply.

is that the same wig?

76053_scan0070_122_578lo1that’s what i wondered when i saw the new ad featuring freja in the eyewear collection..
looks like this year cavalli has a passion for platinum blonde wigs. and if in daria’s case, many tried to see a monroe reference in order to give the images some meaning, what’s the point here? fashion mysteries. too bad there are no pics of them together, it would have been nice.
anyways, i have been thinking about the famous promised post on 2008, but in the last days i have suffered from a very annoying toothache that hasn’t left me many energies… that’s also why i didn’t proceed in updating the site. tooth against daria…
