Dior’s latest ad campaign, inspired by Manet’s Le déjeuner sur l’herbe
Простой и вкусный перекус, который отлично подходит к вечерним кинопросмотрам. На месте моркови может оказаться также батат. В отличие от привычной картошки-фри этот вариант будет более легким. Без фритюрницы и рафинированного масло.
“Eventail” Cocktail Dress
This piece is unarguably the 1950s moderne of the cocktail hour. With a strapless neckline, a rather ostentatious constructive line, and a colorful surface print, the dress would have been rejected for the early evening prior to the 1950s, as its various components belonged (respectively) to late evening or daytime dressing. By mid-century, Parisian couturiers were going to great lengths to enforce an exaggerated formality in order to differentiate themselves from American designers.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art
This short evening dress of black lace consists of three layers. The first layer is a built-in bra supported by six bones, two in front and back, one at each side. The second layer is a slip of cream-colored silk with a sheer black chiffon overlay. The slip is shaped like a sheath and has a wide band of lace at the hem. The outer layer consists of a loose-fitting baby-doll dress with a triple tier of ruffles on the skirt. The dress has a boat neckline, and shoulder straps of black satin ribbon finished in bows. There is a zipper closure at the left seam.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art
After closing the couture house during World War II, Chanel, with characteristic determination, reopened it in 1954. When the first collection was not met favorably by critics, she persevered, eventually succeeding with an updated look that appealed to her loyal clientele, as well as a new group of discerning women. While the silhouette of this ensemble does not immediately identify it as the work of Chanel, the concept (a practical pairing of a dress and a coat with matching lining), details (the turned back cuffs and camellia trim) and black-and-white coloration are signature elements of Chanel’s aesthetic.- The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Hi there? How are you?
I decided to watch once again some shows ss’13. And now, looking at looks created by Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, it struck my mind that one of the dresses reminds me a dress from Disney cartoon. It took some time to remember all the princesses’ attires from all cartoons seen by me)))) I am still not sure whether this dress is the one which was reminded but I think that it is 97% the right one.
Ok. Remember that dress Cinderella wanted to put on to go to the ball first of all? The one mice helped her to sew? Well, that is it))) But V&R’s dress isn’t the same as the finished one from cartoon. It looks like this dress when still being made, without all the decorations except little bow on the waist. When I watched this cartoon I wanted the dress just to stay unfinished, to stay as simple as it was but nobody listened to the prayers of a small girl who watched this cartoon for one million times)))))
Returning to the creation of the design duo: maybe, that is because I still like Cinderella as almost the rest of Disney’s production and maybe, I am still like a small girl who wants to become a princess, but I want the dress by V&R badly.
And are there any attires from Disney’s cartoons that you like and dreamed to have when you were small? It is always interesting to compare wishes we had in childhood..
