The sentiments and mood communicated in the way they walk are in contrast to the quality of the scenery and the product. A pity for the brand. 1h

bof NEW YORK, United States — @HarleyWeir, along with @Jamie.Hawkesworth, @Colin.Dodgson, @ZoeGhertner and others, is spurring a film renaissance in fashion photography.

At a time when digital image-making is more pervasive than ever before — according to research firm InfoTrends, 75 percent of photos are now taken with an iPhone — these so-called "digital natives" are opting to work with film.

Fashion is rediscovering the possibility and the quality of film photography, says @PurpleFashionMagazine’s editor-in-chief @OzPurple, who dedicated his editor’s letter to the subject in the magazine’s most recent issue.

It is similar to what happened in music, with the resurgence of vinyl. Digital photography is sharper and cleaner; it captures a lot of information but it’s cold. Film gives you less information but it’s emotional information. And what do we care about, information or emotion?

bof ANTWERP, Belgium — Walter Van Beirendonck, director of the fashion department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, and Tony Delcampe, his counterpart at La Cambre in Brussels, have moulded some of the most acclaimed artistic directors in recent years.

On Beirendonck’s honour roll: @RafSimons, Kris van Assche at @Dior, and Demna Gvasalia at @Vetements_official and @Balenciaga. On Delcampe’s list: Anthony Vaccarello at @Versus_Versace then @YSL, and Julien Dossena at @PacoRabanne.

Through their students, these two men have exerted a significant influence on the global fashion industry. And yet, these two influential men had never met until this year.

bof PARIS, France — Yohji Yamamoto first emerged on the fashion scene in 1981, when he brought his revolutionary design sensibility to Paris from Tokyo, setting off what would become an aesthetic earthquake. Since then, the designer has become renowned for his avant-garde tailoring, featuring over-sized silhouettes and a restricted, dark palette.

The only son of a war widow, Yamamoto was born in Japan during the Second World War and grew up without any memories of his father, whom he lost when he was only one year old. He was raised singlehandedly by his mother and spent his childhood and early university career studying diligently to please her.

Yamamoto’s mother was a dressmaker who had a shop in in Kabukicho, an amusement and entertainment district in Tokyo’s Shinjuku. It was there that he came to work after graduating from the prestigious Keio University in Tokyo, a decision that initially angered his mother.

But Yamamoto had realised, “I didn’t want to join the ordinary society,” he says.

In a rare interview, the Japanese designer discusses his revolutionary career. Watch the full interview on businessoffashion.com

bof LONDON, United Kingdom — I’ve never been much for taking pictures but I like a new toy, which was exactly what the Polaroid Captiva was when I bought it in 1993. The photos: perfect little rectangles, developed in the back of the camera. No "shake-it-shake-it-shake-it-like-a-Polaroid-picture," needed. So for a year or so I tootled around at the shows Captiva-ting people, the one and only time I ever thought to do such a thing. It was also quite a turbulent time for me socially. The flat was a hive of activity. I took photos of all of that too. Hundreds of them in the end. And then I put them in a box, put them away, forgot about them. After all, if they were pictures I’d taken, how could they possibly be any good?

Time passes. I’m moving. I lose the box, I find the box. I open it. And it’s 1993 again. It’s usually hindsight that gives moments their weight. You’re not thinking about LIVING IN 1993 when you’re actually living in 1993. Perspective comes with 2003 or 2013 or 2023. And now that the Internet has turned everyone into a curator, you can mount retrospectives of your own perspectives. Throwback Thursdays, Flashback Fridays…. “I’d like to be a gallery, put you all inside my show.” That was one prophet, David Bowie, singing about another, Andy Warhol, in 1971. And how hindsight weighted those words — and those artists.

Anyway, back to the box. Turns out the Captiva did a pretty good job. Flicking through the pictures, I sense there are some missing. L’Evangelista is not there, for instance. Obviously, they weren’t so hidden away that the occasional visitor to my chaotic library didn’t take a lucky dip. And I was never enough of a completist to take my Captiva to Milan with me, so there are whole cities missing, not just faces.
Via Captiva, I can track the code of the genus supermodelis — at least as it existed for a couple of months in 1993 — from Carmen Dell’Orefice through #JerryHall and Marie Helvin to Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Yasmeen Ghauri and beyond to Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta.
