DSquared2’s S/S’13 Pre Collection Flashbacks to the ’90s

June 21, 2012

I blame @TeamChutzpah for starting my latest obsession with DSQUARED2. Dean and Dan Caten’s wit and exuberance has shone in recent collections and S/S’13 continues in much the same vein. The boy TC also turned me on to the genius Mert & Marcus ‘The Substitute’ video from the Caten Brothers focusing on shoes and catwalk […]

Versace’s Vamptastic A/W’12 Campaign Imagery

May 23, 2012

 Let’s face it people, Versace’s always been ready to frock and roll. Since Gianni sent his bevvy of supermodels down the catwalk rocking out to George Michael’s ‘Freedom’ and then dressed them in ultra Glam fetishistic punk, with the prevalent Medusa logo as the arch indicator of status, the stage has quite literally been set […]

Marni Takes a Trip for A/W’12

February 29, 2012

Its capes agogo for Autumn/Winter ’12. I love capes but this brings its own dilemmas – how on earth do you carry a huge handbag with little fiddly arms to the elbow poking out one’s cape arm holes? Marni continued the trend but offered a more sensible option of military style cape with large external […]

Donatella Versace Goes Goth with a Conscience for A/W’12

February 25, 2012

There’s been a spate of darkness about the A/W ’12 shows in New York, London and Milan: reassuringly black (quite literally) but not grim in these austere times and striving for the inner Goth. Embrace the severity it seems to say. Even at Versace, the home of Miss Vibrant and sometimes Lurid Colourama herself, we’ve […]

Versace A/W ’12 Menswear review

February 2, 2012

The word “taste” has never really featured in the Versace lexicon. The Italian house virtually defined late-Eighties excess, only to have the red carpet pulled out from underneath them by the avant-garde and influential Antwerp Six, a team of Belgian designers whose dark and stark subversion of the conventional notions of beauty and aesthetics caused a […]

Atelier Versace’s S/S’12 Couture show

January 24, 2012

I always love Parisian couture and the idea behind it.  All those skilled ateliers toiling for months on intricate detailing and patterns, the creating of art as fashion and yes, even the elitism. But couture these days sees more and more attempts to raise ready-to-wear brand’s profile (largely to sell mainline, perfume and handbags from […]

Cindy Crawford’s Daughter Models for Young Versace S/S’12

January 18, 2012

Not content with their onslaught on the high street and their continued stardom in the Milan catwalks for collections that rock, Donatella Versace has another market in site, the under ’12s. It seems that new markets and a re-newed vigour for identifiable status brands has made the ultra youth market the place to be. Hot […]

Giorgio Armani’s New S/S’12 Ad Campaign

January 6, 2012

Who’d a’ thunk it? No sooner have I mentioned Chutzpah’s continued love for Mert & Marcus’ photographic style and their numerous fashion campaigns in my Versace ad campaign blogpost than lo and behold!, Armani’s latest ad campaign by, you guessed it….Mert & Marcus, appears in my inbox. You’d almost think there was something kismet about it, […]

Versace launches S/S’12 ad campaign

January 3, 2012

Girls and boys, I’d love to tell you more about these pics such as where they will be appearing (no doubt every glossy and niche fash mag) and what was the inspiration behind them but as such there’s scant information accompanying this set of gorgeous Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott pics. These guys never let us down […]

Chutzpah’s Weekly Barometer

November 27, 2011

A light hearted look back over the past week’s good, bad and indifferent including the “don’t even go there’s”. LOVING  MeMeMe Cosmetics Sunbeam Illuminator – La Chutzpah has been looking for AGES for a replacement for her sadly discontinued multi purpose Lancome Maquisuperbe highlighter and *this* is a good one. While it may not be […]
