When you hear Coach, what do you think? More
Hedi Slimane came to Yves Saint Laurent and absolutely cleaned house–first, by dropping the Yves and changing up the rest of the logo, then revamping the aesthetic by recycling a bunch of old ideas like boho and grunge, charging an arm and a leg for babydoll dresses and sequined jackets, and slathering it all with an entirely undeserved veneer of cool by hiring non-fashion people to be in the campaigns. Also, Marilyn Manson. More
Today, in stunt casting: Diesel has an extremely provocative new campaign anchored by the slogan, I Am Not What I Appear To Be. In order to achieve the very sexy levels of provocation he was after, the brand’s equally-sexy-and-boundary-pushing new creative director Nichola Formichetti (above) cast “real people”/non-models and people from the internet (the realest people).
One of them happens to be wearing a niqab–but a denim one, for that extra rock’n roll grit. More

Tomorrow marks the official celebration of Rosh Hashanah and–while NYFW organizers weren’t sympathetic to the date–here comes American Apparel to observe the holiday in the only way they know: by provocatively stunt casting an Hasidic Jewish model as their latest campaign face. More

Gwyneth Paltrow has been the face of Boss fragrance for a while now–it was over a year ago that her first (“extremely awkward”) Boss Nuit campaign dropped. Now she’s fronting ads for Boss Jour, the brand’s sister fragrance, and they’re a mess of over-eager Photoshop. More
Grunge has been “back” for so long that even Jessica Simpson knows about it. More

Here’s an idea, though–how about instead of mining Monroe’s painfully over-licensed image, we just hire some models? Or currently-alive famous actresses? Sure, there will never be another Monroe (or Hepburn), but it’s probably better than dragging old icons from their graves to sell hairspray. More
Looks like the price point hovers between $200 and $300, naturally. More
She is so pretty it’s ridiculous. More
It always strikes us as kind of weird when real life couples leverage their real life relationships for… advertising campaigns? Seems a little exploitative.
Then again, we’re not comely young Brits with major British fashion labels throwing money (pounds?!) at us. More
