I watched this last night and I highly recommend it. It was interesting to see the differences between the 'world' portrayed in this movie versus the one portrayed in Lagerfeld Confidential; Karl Lagerfeld and his day-to-day business appeared very formal and professional while Marc Jacobs and his crew were filled with so much youth and energy. Marc and his team at Louis Vuitton seemed like a family or group of close friends working on a hobby. I think creativity flows better in an environment like that, where people can laugh and smile and feel comfortable throwing out any idea they have.
Let me just say that what I admire about Gareth Pugh is the way he thinks outside of the box in regards to men's clothing. I know that seems like "duh" but it always frustrates me how much women's clothing can ebb and flow with different trends and construction ideas, yet men's clothing tends to recycle the same concepts, just in different colors and/or patterns. Even though a lot of this stuff isn't "wearable", I think it deserves praise simply for being different.
This is actually a couple months old, but I just found it yesterday. I love Yelle and this video is
one of the best I've seen in a while in terms of matching the feeling of the song with the visuals
of the video. Very Goldfrapp-esque, which is a good thing.
