LCM: River Island Fashion Film Event

Milan Fashion Week’s staple, Roberto Cavalli, showcased a collection that was full of what we would expect from him: very luxurious fabrics, plenty of skin and a Miami inspired vibe. The collection is one that suits the Italian Riviera or Miami coasts perfectly – tailored and light outfits that have a tasteful level of elegance and chic.

Cavalli named the Miami playboy as his centre for inspiration. Using their signature excessive use animal print, the brand showcased a playful collection which has summer printed all over it. Toying with the Miami playboy stereotype, Cavalli sent models down the runway baring their tanned chests in everything from feminine peachy jacquards to printed sheer shirts.

Here at PAUSE, one of our favourite pieces from Cavalli’s SS15 collection includes a pair of high waisted light trousers with a safari and parrot print.

On the Monday evening of LCM, the PAUSE team were invited down to the British Fashion Council – Fashion Film sponsored by River Island event, hosted at the ICA.

BFC122_LCMSS15_FashionFilm_263There were five films shown on the night, with a premiere from Christopher Raeburn by Thomas Traum titled ‘Meridian’. The film was completely rendered in animation and was truly captivating, showing a glimmer of what fashion films can do and offer. This film in particular truly showed off the movement of a Christopher Raeburn garment in spectacular fashion.

Also showcasing at the event were films from Nicholas Kirkwood, Paul Smith, Matchesfashion.com and Baartmans & Siegel x River Island.

MOVIESTILL4Matchesfashion.com showed off how cool clothes look in slow-motion and the number of shapes garments make without us realising.

Following the fashion films, a panel discussion took place around this quote from Nick Knight: “Fashion film is becoming what fashion photography used to be for magazines [and] the internet is what magazines were, but much better.”

The discussion was very thought-provoking and probably left us with more questions than answers about fashion films, such as ‘how far can fashion films go?’ And ‘is it really possible for fashion photography to become obsolete?’
