Phoebe English A/W 2012 Show Studios
Captured under a hazy light and submerged in water, Phoebe English presents her Autumn/Winter 2012 collection in a new short film directed by Marie Kristiansen. Playing with English’s signature fusion of natural and synthetic surfaces, the piece seeks to examine the theatrical and kinetic possibilities of her sculptural creations.
Givenchy ‘Dahlia Noir’ Fragrance Campaign
MariaCarla Boscono fronts Givenchy’s ‘Dahlia Noir’ fragrance campaign by Mert & Marcus.
Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci loves dahlias, comparing them to his vision of beauty, danger and women. His creatures are mystical and mysterious, both male and female, strong and fragile — a vision of a modern goddess, says the Dahlia Noir website.
Sensual Flower Photographer Kate Scott
Tisci’s love of dahlia’s is shared by Anne’s dear friend Kate Scott, whose dahlia ‘Opus’ will debut at Corso Como on Thursday, July 19-Aug 10. Perhaps DahliaNoir could sponsor Kate in Paris, introducing her amazing dahlia’s at Colette.
Note that Kate Scott already has a presence at Paris art gallery Sakura.
I pulled a few more Kate Scott dahlias, just to wet our sensual appetites for this fiercely sensual, feminine but very strong dahlia creatures. Enjoy still more on Kate’s Flickr page.
