Modern Classic Update: YSL’s New Fragrance Black Opium

by Theresa Yee
Rosalind

tee hee hee

Perfumers Nathalie Lorson, Marie Salamagne, Honorine Blanc and Olivier Cresp created a brand new formulation from the Opium fragrance to present a gourmand floral scent designed to attract a younger demographic. The top notes include coffee bean accord and pink pepper with a dry down of white flowers and crisp pear for a dark yet sweet complexity. The juice is new in a rose-tinted hue, while the bottle retains its classic shape updated in all-over matte, black glitter.

The print campaign photographed by Mathieu Cesar features London-born model Edie Campbell as the face of Black Opium. Her style embraces the opposite elements of the fragrance with a feminine sensuality pared back by a tomboyish edge.

In addition to the campaign, a film directed by Daniel Wolfe translates the energetic yet dark character of the perfume into a dramatic mood showcased through a colour scheme of electric brights against dark shadows. The short film has been segmented into eight parts and follows Campbell on a mysterious journey through a night time cityscape.

Black Opium is available now in 30ml, 50ml and 90ml sizes.

London Fashion Week SS15 highlights: Day 5

by Disneyrollergirl

Simone-Rocha-ss15

This post is a little late because I had so much post-LFW catching up to do.

Simone Rocha is a favourite for Londoners and has finely tuned her unique communion-chic aesthetic. I loved how the models’ heads were swathed in sheer, flower-scattered voiles. Also, those pink lace-ups…

I noticed endless Westwood influences at LFW. From Christopher Bailey’s waisted denim jackets, to J W Anderson’s oversized lapels and pinstripes, the references just kept coming. Meadham Kirchhoff held a street casting for their show earlier in the week that I would have loved to go to, just to check out who turned up. The show was full of a diverse array of models who really brought the already-interesting clothes alive and brought to mind the 1980s ‘World’s End’ shows that Westwood used to produce with Malcolm McLaren – I’ve been thinking a lot about those lately. Meadham Kirchhoff’s messaging was a big F-you to society’s intolerances. By all accounts it was an emotional outpouring which I’d like to have witnessed first hand. Alas, it was the same ‘it’s a small venue’ story as with many shows last week…

For the grand finale, Vogue and J Crew threw a very special end-of-LFW cocktail party at Winfield House, the American Ambassador’s residence in London, that’s slap bang in the middle of Regent’s Park. How did I not know this existed? I have never seen anything like it, each room as perfectly styled as a Ralph Lauren photo shoot set, with antique furniture, Degournay wallpapers, abundant floral displays, stacks of coffee table books and astonishing contemporary art at every corner. (We may have taken turns to pose at the dressing table in the ladies…)

The final punctuation of LFW came with the Harrods Shoe Heaven party. I’ve just published my dedicated post for this epic new shoe department, but it was super-fun, not least because there were ‘civilians’ mingling with the fashiony types and mobbing the likes of Jourdan Dunn for selfies. I wore my new Charlotte Olympia Monroe 120cm heels which were identical to the ones Charlotte Dellal herself turned up in – shoe twins!

"We’d get advanced warning when the American B-52’s were going to bomb the enemy positions. These were the most frightening times of the war. We’d stuff cotton in our ears and our nose and shut our eyes tight and crouch down against the ground. The bombs didn’t drop in one place. They spread out like sand. And if you weren’t ready for them and happened to be standing up with your ears uncovered and your eyes open, the pressure alone could burst your heart or break a vessel in your brain. When they dropped their bombs, I don’t think those pilots knew what it was like on the ground."

Binx Walton i-D Magazine by Cass Bird

This model was discovered at just 13 years old, and considering she’s only 18, she’s already notched up her fair share of power-house prowling; gracing the catwalks of Marc Jacobs, Chanel and Prada amongst premium others. Her striking, androgynous beauty and sassy star quality has her pegged for big, BIG things.

Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.
