Paco Rabanne’s look book for Resort 2016 is effortless cool, no doubt about it. Creative director Julien Dossena has partly Marie-Amelie Sauvé to thank when it comes to the styling and pairing of the looks of his very sporty pieces yet bohemian garments – some ‘folklore’-vibes is definitely included in his urban pieces. The designer refer his collection as a something a ‘student groupie’ would wear with all mesh and metal combined. Well, what can I say? The earrings are to-die for, along with the futuristic sandals and asymmetric garments.
On my mind for the moment: super stylish Marie-Amélie Sauvé who is former stylist for Balenciaga (worked close with Nicolas Ghesquière through his year at the house and was his longtime muse). Starting off her career at Vogue Paris as an intern in the eighties, Sauvé came back for a position at the magazine under the Carine Roitfeld-era, and continued on with American Vogue as member of team Anna Wintour. Her currently position is as W magazine’s senior fashion editor as well as freelance and always ends-up teaming with Ghesquière. Sauvé always look impeccable cool in in feminine, modern and trend-updated pieces mainly from Balenciaga and she has definitely a look to get inspired from. Below you can see some of her editorial work.
The debut of the new magazine System is set to May this Spring and it is a deep-thought magazine about the fashion industry brought to us by an editorial board of very influential persons – Alexia Niedzielski & Elizabeth von Guttman (editors at Interview magazine and co-founders of Ever Manifesto), Jonathan Wingfield (former editor of Numéro), Thomas Lenthal (art director of the journal Paradis) and stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé. Their aim is to explore the social environment of fashion in context of what happens when a designer leaves a fashion house or an e-commerce site overtakes a traditional retailer. First interview puts focus on Nicolas Ghesquière, who is photographed by Juergen Teller. I am really looking forward to this issue, not only because of the in-depth interview with Ghesquière but also since it is covering profiles such as Yves Carcelle and Azzedine Alaïa. For now, System will be released twice a year, and hopefully that will continue on.
