ENDitorial: VOGUE and Nostalgia for Classic Superman

Once upon a time before this latest abomination of a film, Superman was.... Superman. He wasn't big on the obscenely monumental destruction of public property, superman-manofsteel-149  superman-manofsteel-148superman-manofsteel-106

he actually wore red shorts,

and oh yeah... Spoiler alert: HE WASN'T KILLING PEOPLE.

Before the New 52, he was even happily married to Lois Lane.

For this month's enditorial, we're taking a nostalgic look back at the All- American Superfamily as depicted by Vogue. Shot by Mario Testino, top male model David Gandy portrays the Man of Steel in this fashion spread, not tearing towns apart, but simply being the all American boyscout we all love on a family outing. While supermodel (naturally) Carolyn Murphy paints Lois Lane as a super mom to her super darling. The women share the spotlight with supes sporting chic, retro feminine, near identical looks.

Luxurious and lady-like,  heart-melting and super sweet.

Put a Blazer on It!

Gentlemen! Dressing up has never been easier, faster, more affordable, or more comfortable. That’s right, there is NO excuse for showing up anywhere underdressed. Lose, the sweatshirt, destroy the CROCS (PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF COOKIES, DESTROY. THE. CROCS!), and pick up this easy to follow guide.

Have a favorite sci-fi tee? Let’s frame that beauty with a structured sport coat, and let your geek pride shine!

Happy Birthday to kickass glam geek idol: MILLA JOVOVICH

[on “Resident Evil”] We’ve got really infantile mentalities on this movie. We’re like: ‘It’s gross - cool! It’s disgusting - print it!’ You have to think like a fifteen -year-old. Wet dress. Zombies. Guns. Cool!”. - MJ

V for Vendetta on the Runway...?!

V FOR VENDETTA ON THE ADRIAN WU RUNWAY | TFW FALL 2012

Well, we know of at least one designer who’s a huge V for Vendetta fan…. among a million other things, apparently. Not exactly how I would choose to reference a movie. What do you think of models parading around in, “look-at-me-trying-to-make-a-spectacle-I-mean-statement-about-politics,” Guy Fawkes masks?

Toronto Fashion Week didn’t know what hit it…and maybe neither did the designer….

Here, he attempts to explain:

"This collection is titled "Hierarchy of Needs". I wanted to do a collection that ascetically looked dramatic, romantic, and a little bit wearable but very much a reflection of my own technique. Three years ago I came across a new way of sewing. I invented this sort of minimalistic bodice and ‘inverted pleating’ and it is these techniques that maybe have created a sort of new language in fashion. The cuts of the collection are taken by the ideas of old parisian clothing, the colours to the silhouette. Philosophically, I like my work to have context. I used the mask as a commentary to the specific comparisons between North American Politics versus European Politics and how it effects Human Rights by citing the movie "V for Vendetta". My dream continues to be that one day I be hired by the house of Dior. I invite you to question every aspect of my work, from the pieces to the environment. I am inspired by people and people who effect my life. Enjoy"

And yet, I don’t think Raf Simons has anything to worry about.
