Friday, July 25, 2014

 Kenzo presents “Grace To The Nth Power” 

 
Through its virtual and real exhibition entitled « Grace To The Nth Power », Kenzo presents us its PreFall 2014 Collection in a surprising way. 
 
 
« Grace To The Nth Power » is the Kenzo’s new multimedia project. The Film is realized in order to present the PreFall 2014 Collection designed by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon. The brand takes us in a 3D experience where we discover an exhibition dedicated to Sudanese-American model Grace Bol.
 
This film directed by Partel Oliva is in collaboration with the web designers Kim Boutin and David Broner. For the music, Fatima Al Qadiri, to who we owe the soundtrack of the Men Show Autumn-Winter 2014, has been chosen. 
 
 
. Story of the film
 
Little time before the « Grace To The Nth Power » exhibition, the gallery was broken. Not wishing to cancel the event, the artist decided to replace the missing works by videos showing thieves. Visitors find themselves in an empty gallery and attend the theft. We rapidly understand that the culprits are the model Grace Bol and her accomplice Sang Woo Kim. 
 
 
Fully live the 3D experience on the Kenzo website : http://www.kenzo.com/fall2014
 
After viewing the film, visitors can go to a special website to buy clothes. Kenzo also organize an exhibition of the videos and works at the Galerie 12 Mail/Red Bull Space in Paris from September 24-26.

 The cult swimsuits in film

 

And if the latest collections of our talented designers were inspired by the greatest films ?

 

We necessarily all remember the famous red swimsuit of Pamela Anderson in the Baywatch series, but many swimsuits worn by our favorite actors have left their mark on us ! Here is a small selection of our favorites which you can find similar styles on our website LaNouvelleVague.com ! 
 
 
. La Piscine 
 
 
Released in 1969, the film La Piscine is directed by Jacques Deray. It is at the edge of their pool in Saint-Tropez that Marianne and Jean-Paul interpreted by Romy Schneider and Alain Delon, spend idyllic holiday or almost. We follow the adventures of these young lovers dressed swimsuits. Alain Delon chooses the wild side while Romy Schneider opts for the simplicity with a black bikini.  
 
 
Our selection : 
 
  

 
 

 

 

. Suddenly, Last Summer

 
In 1959, Montgomery Clift and Katharine Hepburn are the partners of Elizabeth Taylor in the film Suddenly, Last Summer directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
 
Based on the play of the same title by Tennessee Williams, this work has left a mark on us by its incredible casting but also by its polemic side.
 
While Catherine Holly (Elizabeth Taylor) spends time on the beach, we admire this white one piece swimsuit, one of the major trends of Summer 2014.

 

  Our selection :

 

 . Monkey Business

 

 
 

Monkey Business is a film directed by Howard Hawks. 

Released in 1952, Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe play the Dr Barnaby Fulton and Miss Lois Laurel.

 
It is in the swimming pool that we find again our two actors with a broad grin.
 
Our look stops then on their swimsuits which will not fail to inspire us this Summer.
