I might have put on that velvet jacket for a few moments a few days ago to live out my fierce princess moment. Not saying I did. Just saying I might have…
“Understand that my criticisms come from my perspective as a Barneys salesman. Brands like NdG and NiCo are generally tasteful, well-fitting and loads better then anything commonly available - but I’ve owned, handled and sold almost all the brands discussed here and there are just much better options at that pricepoint.”—Oh, Internet. Never change. Never, ever.
That Sophia Coppola poster series I’ve been reluctantly working on is almost done, there’s just minor details I need to fix. Honestly, I’ve been looking at these for so long that I can’t tell whether or not they’re any good. If there’s anything you want to say about these posters, positive or negative, please do.
I tried to leave a reply, but found myself positively gushing, so I needed to reblog instead:
In short — I think these are fantastic.
In long — I think these would be perfect for a DVD set of her movies. The typographic consistency provides a beautiful structural and proportional anchor for the individual subtleties of each poster’s treatment. What’s so engaging is that each poster’s title has a unique coloring, texture, and even rhythm to its text. Compare the jumbled colors of “Lost in Translation” which require a slower, more thoughtful reading to the unnaturally clean and blunt slashes through “The Virgin Suicides” (at first glance, the words seem jagged and almost serrated, but it’s simply a trick of clean angles and perfectly generous negative space) discomfit while they inform.
"Lost in Translation" stands heads-and-shoulders above the rest for it’s play with symmetry, shape, and even dimension. And the barely-there interplay between the tagline and the graphic just instantly makes me smile. While the others are also good, this one is good down to the very last detail. The treatment masterfully weaves together the connotative and denotative complexities of language, typography, symbols, and art. Harmony, streamlined.
On a related note: Often my biggest complain against exhaustively hyped Hollywood pictures is that the aesthetic work starts and ends on the reel and never extends through into the the public presence of the film, much less the ephemeral posters used to advertise it. There’s a lot of noise and photographs and content that gets produced, but how much conversation is genuinely generated?
I realised I have not send you an ask before but it's not really an ask but here it goes. I totally love your idea! lol. Basically most people here are quite conservative and there's nothing I can actually do. =/ Well you don't have to post this. By the way HI! =]
Let them be conservative. When your generation is the voting majority you can smile every time you vote against one of their lame-ass policies or politicians. Most of the younger folks (yours truly included) in America can’t wait until “The Greatest Generation” gets too old to read the ballot.
“Geoffrey Beene! I loved his clothes but not him. Years ago, we were about to walk the runway and he pushed me. I said, ‘Don’t do that!’ ‘You work for me!’ he said, and I replied, ‘No, you’ve hired my services, dear. I don’t work for you,’ and I left.”—Iman telling Simon Doonan one of her angriest moments in fashion in December’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar. This bitch is crazy, folks. ALL HAIL.
