This Lanvin AW 2011 ad has been going viral for about a day or so now. At first I saw the still of what looked like models doing synchronized dance moves. It is beautifully shot, the models look gorgeous, and there is definitely a really fun quality to it that I have come to associate with Alber Elbaz. I was however, rolling on the floor when I realized that I too know those dance moves, they are from the game Dance Central on the XBox 360! I am not sure if it is supposed to be intentionally recognizable. If so (and I hope it is) then a good bit of camp pop culture added into the overly serious game of fashion.

Looking through the internet trying to put together a proposal for our latest editorial I came across the work of Delfina Delettrez. She is a fourth generation Fendi, creating jewelry with the Fendi couture aesthetic while infusing it with odd and sometime macabre imagery. They are truly creative and even challenging pieces for the high end market.
