Summer approaching, the urge to recharge the batteries is there. Fill new images, new ideas, inspiring and inspired, look elsewhere, in others, raise the nose to breathe better air time. Extricate landscape (sometimes narrow) Fashion hexagonal line, ranging from egocentric blogs and e-commerce sites unimaginative. Because yes, let it be said and let it be said, on the web, there are many creative commercials, non-profit organizations, with the ambition to offer their visitors a different view of fashion. Here are our favorites.
Most worship The Selby
In 2008, Todd Selby, illustrator and photographer, opens its editorial site with a simple goal: make "interior portraits", ie, housing situation or personalities of his friends, photographed at home, at heart of their daily lives. We know the following: a meteoric success and more than 60,000 unique visitors per day. The young man now working with the biggest names in fashion, but the site has not aged a bit. It is full of decorating ideas, fashion, lifestyle. Fresh and inspiring.
The most voyeur: The Coveteur
Same principle at The Coveteur, but the zoom option and more. For here, focus is made on the dressing (and only the dressing) influential fashion personalities. The site offers a portrait of each guest as an image patchwork, a living and lived moodboard. Shoe closets containing hundreds of pairs for some collections of designer handbags for other clothes icons scripted as works of art, vintage pieces, precious jewelry or trinkets of little value, respond in a joyful mix away very far from the clichés sanitized.
The more arty: The Shape Of The Journey
A large shark mouth open, a portrait of Kate Moss, the poster of a Cassavetes film, detail of a garment or a late summer sky, that some of the photographs that are posted each pleasing day in this highly addictive site. And one begins to mechanically turn the I pad every morning to take a look, between sips of coffee. Poetic images that give to see and think.
The more pro: Fashiongonerogue
But back to fashion, its sector, its actors, its industry. All campaigns past and future releases are on this site. But total shootings, the books look brand, commercials previews. It is here that Hume trends in future seasons, discovering the choice of brand communication. Photographers stars, supermodels, worldwide campaigns, it's all here!
The most avant-garde: Not Just A Label
We are very far here, the beaten track e-commerce worldwide. This site is rather a very sharp showcase what our fashion will be made tomorrow. New creators and real talents become, it has become a bible for many writers. It takes a good whiff of trend, style and zeitgeist.
Most Frenchy: Modern Of Young People
This is a blog run by a collective of creative Parisian. Tickets mood around the fashion, design, culture and Address City guide perfectly convincing. It is very readable, light, urban, hip. We love the blog name and its aesthetic patina of vintage spirit. In the cloud of French blogs trend focused on the authors or on the news people, we welcome the freshness of these young people, modern.
