“Don’t Worry Darling” in 10 frames 

“Don’t Worry Darling” in 10 frames 

Giulia Guido · 3 days ago · Photography

Don’t Worry Darling is one of those cases where one watches the film more out of curiosity than healthy interest. The film, which arrived in theaters last Sept. 22 and was presented at the Venice Film Festival last Sept. 5, began to be talked about long before the trailer, teaser and first photos from the set. 

In fact, the controversies began right at the beginning of filming, when Olivia Wilde, who signs off as director, fired Shia LaBeouf, justifying this decision to the actor’s method of working, which according to Wilde did not fit her modus operandi.
Olivia Wilde’s problems also continued with the leading lady, Florence Pugh, with whom she seems to have had several tensions (never publicly confirmed).
Rounding out this complicated production phase came the director’s choice to replace LaBeouf with then-partner Harry Styles

Inevitably, all these events also took their toll on the promotion phase, which, however, shifted the focus from the actual film to pure gossip. 

A shame? Perhaps not. 

Alice and Jack Chambers are a happily married couple living in Victory, an experimental 1950s community where the men spend all day at work, while the women take care of the house, and then spend their free time with their neighbors. Something suddenly changes, however, and Alice begins to feel constrained in that life, with an increasing desire to discover what lies beyond the city limits. This is the plot, which in itself also hides something potentially interesting, unfortunately it is the development that is lacking. It’s like when teachers in school used to say “he has potential but he doesn’t apply himself.” 

Of all that Don’t Worry Darling puts on the table-which seems more like a need for redemption on Wilde’s part-something is saved and it is the reason why the film lets you watch it to the end: the aesthetics

In fact, the director used the work of Matthew Libatique, an American cinematographer and regular collaborator of Darren Aronofsky, to take care of the photography. In nearly three decades of work, Libatique has handled the cinematography for such films as Requiem for a Dream and The Black Swan, experience that led him to be prepared for the eerie reality brought to the big screen in Don’t Worry Darling. It is immediately noticeable how the warm light that illuminates the entire town becomes cold and gloomy when Alice is alone with herself, and becomes colder and colder as time passes. The use of light, then, goes hand in hand with the colors of the places: for example, the bathroom tiles are green, reminiscent of hospital uniforms. 

For this reason, it was particularly difficult to select only 10 frames from the film, which perhaps focused heavily on aesthetics and too little on content.

Jared Leto will be Karl Lagerfeld in a biopic about the French couturier

Jared Leto will be Karl Lagerfeld in a biopic about the French couturier

Andrea Tuzio · 2 months ago · Style

According to WWD, Jared Leto will play visionary French couturier Karl Lagerfeld in a biopic produced by Paradox, the production company of Emma Ludbrook and Leto himself, along with the House of Karl Lagerfeld foundation.

The film’s executive producers will be the designer’s close collaborators Pier Paolo Righi, Caroline Lebar and Sébastien Jondeau. All three of these key figures in Lageferld’s life have held prominent roles in the French fashion designer’s work for more than 20 years, so who better than them to assist Leto in making the film. 

For now, there are no details regarding the plot of the film, but what is known is that the focus will be on what was Lagerfeld’s inner circle through a unique point of view.

“Karl had a career that spanned 50-plus years so both personally and professionally he was close to a number of people. I can say we are going to home in on key relationships that convey different parts of his life”, Leto said in the exclusive interview with WWD.

Over the years, we have been approached by several Hollywood producers who suggested to partner on a movie about Karl’s iconic life, Pier Paolo Righi said in a statement released by Deadline. “It has been only since we met Jared and Emma that we felt truly confident about the story being told in the artistic way Karl would have loved to see. Throughout our conversations, we have created an equally trustful and inspiring creative relationship that will allow us to work together very fluidly on this beautiful project”.

All we have to do is wait!

Rosalía is the new face of Acne Studios

Andrea Tuzio · 2 months ago · Style

For three years now, Rosalía has been one of the strongest artists on the face of the earth. 
After eight Latin Grammys, ten number-one singles in Spain, your still-ongoing worldwide and her own radio station in Grand Theft Auto Online, the Spanish singer has become the new face of Acne Studios’ new Fall/Winter 2022 campaign.

Shot and filmed by Dutch photographer Paul Kookier, the campaign consists of a series of very intimate shots where the Spanish artist is immortalized as a true muse.

“When I pose for a photographer, I always try to be myself but also try to channel an energy”, explained Rosalía who added: ”What appealed to me the most about working with Paul [Kooiker] was that he has an atemporal style, his pictures could have been taken when photography was invented. But, at the same time, he transmits a freshness of the moment. His pictures are badass”.

“I love how bold but elegant everything is. To me, Acne Studios is a brand that takes care with the fabrics, the colors, the textures – everything is so well thought through, impeccable and fresh”, Rosalía said about the Swedish brand.

“The campaign tried to capture Rosalía in a way she is rarely seen”, explained Kookier, who then added: “While shooting the videos, I discovered that her movements were so strong and confident that we continued this way of working for the stills. The approach was to shoot the contemporary collection in a timeless and historical atmosphere”.

Palace’s infamous product descriptions in a book

Palace’s infamous product descriptions in a book

Andrea Tuzio · 2 months ago · Style

Palace is set to release Drop 2 of Fall 2022, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 14
In addition to the classic outerwear, sweatshirts, T-shirts, caps, and pants, the British skateboard brand has unveiled a book destined to become an absolute cult among fans, the title is Palace Product Descriptions: The Selected Archive

Published by Phaidon,the book was edited entirely by Palace founder Lev Tanju and is the official, printed archive of the infamous online product descriptions. Since its inception, Palace has always used descriptions that often had nothing to do with the product itself and were totally out of context and decidedly unconventional, chock-full of humor, social satire, strong opinions, and no-nonsense.

The Edinburgh-born writer, poet and literary critic Sam Buchan-Watts, was asked to write the preface, who, in the very preface to Palace Product Descriptions: The Selected Archive, scrive: “Ludwig Wittgenstein claimed that a serious philosophical work could be written entirely of jokes: we might now add product descriptions”.

Divided by points and strictly all in capital letters, the book consists of more than 3,000 descriptions divided into 22 sui generis categories, such as: “anatomy,” “animals,” “etiquette,” “philanthropy,” “romance,” “travel,” and many others, plus product photos of course. 

Palace Product Descriptions: The Selected Archive will be available starting October 14 from both Palace’s web shop and Phaidon’s website for €40.

Supreme and The North Face rocked again

Supreme and The North Face rocked again

Andrea Tuzio · 2 months ago · Style

Right on time like every year these days, came the new collaboration between Supreme and The North Face for the seventh drop of Fall 2022 from the skateboard brand founded by James Jebbia.

Unlike the previous collabs, however, this one seems to have something more in all aspects, both at the creative and communicative level and from a materials point of view. 
The choice made by the two brands involved was to go digging into old joint ventures and restore contemporaneity to the aesthetic choices made in previous years. 

In the Supreme/The North Face Fall 2022 collection we find the fur print of the Nuptse from Fall 2013, or the map print from Spring/Summer 2014 and then again paisley, camo, denim in short, a look at the past but projecting everything into the future.

This collection represents The North Face’s first release under the creative direction of Tremaine Emory, and the direction taken is immediately apparent. 
The collaboration winks at the world of motocross, but all the garments in the collection can be worn regardless of context and look flawless perfectly within the contemporary urban context. 

The Fall 2022 Supreme/The North Face collaboration will be released online and in Supreme stores on Thursday, October 13.
