DoYaThing By Gorillaz featuring Andre 3000 and James Murphy

LOVE the NEW Gorillaz featuring Andre 3000 and James Murphy for Converse!

We think it's a touch better than My Drive Thru by Santogold, Julian Casablancas, N.E.R.D

also DAMN YOU CONVERSE now I want some new shoes… how did that work!?

James Franco For GQ Style Germany

James Frnaco for GQ Style Germany Spring Summer 2012 shot by Mariano Vivanco.

I have to be honest, I don't think this is the best James cover I've ever seen.

How many covers can he get? What about little Davie Franco?

Off to Condé Nast to pick up this issue…

Goodbye Stefano Pilati…

(The FINAL Stefano Pilati for YSL menswear collection)

SIGH rumors were true it seems, Stefano Pilati "quit" Yves Saint Laurent. The upcoming show will be his last.

SO why would he walk away? Did he quit? Who is replacing him?


Still so many questions, nothing like fashion drama to distract from Fashion Week.

So we have another "Final" collection, this will be great for sales…

NOW I have to find a way to afford Jil Sander AND YSL!


Kathryn Bigelow Directs some new "short films" for Chanel starring Danny Fuller.

I love how Luxury houses can get Academy Award winning directors to make commercials.

It is a little strange that the Chanel chose a professional surfer, will Fuller get a print campaign?

Come to think of it, how NON French is surfing.

Paddy Mitchell, Tan­ner Dil­lon & Tucker Des Lau­ri­ers

I'm loving this 70's chic retro shoot!

Mar­i­ano Vivanco shot Paddy Mitchell, Tan­ner Dil­lon & Tucker Des Lau­ri­ers for H&M magazine.

When did H&M magazine get so good?!?

70's & "All American" almost always work for me… This has just the right amount of both.

The Model Soup

NYFW for The Model Soup from noma han on Vimeo.

Loving this video! Just give us any video with models and we will love it…

If only every week was fashion week, we would have model soup every day :P

SAVE Stefano Part…

I feel like my Save Stefano campaign isn't working.

Rumor has Hedi Slimane returning to YSL… with Stefano out of a job?!?

Where's Everyone Going?!?

If I recall correctly one scenario had Stefano taking over Armani…

SO it could look like…

Raf Simons At DIOR
Hedi Slimane At YSL
Stefano Pilati At Armani

IF Raf gets DIOR, would he take over MENS (PLEASE YES!)


Raf Simons at YSL
Hedi Slimane at Dior Homme?
Stefano Pilati at DIOR!!!

That one is a stretch.

GAWD all this fashion drama is killing me!

Jil Sander Fall Winter 2012 - 2013

A historic collection, the final Raf Simons for Jil Sander show.

After almost seven years Raf took his final bow, Anna Wintour lead a standing ovation that moved Simons to tears.

I was nearly moved to tears but I was also playing "Take A Bow" by Madonna while viewing the collection…

SO DIOR next?

The collection is near perfection, I will miss Raf's vision of JIL but it will be interesting to see how JIL works JIL.

The collection will also sell like hot cakes, a final collection makes for great collector pieces!

Good luck Raf, hope to see you soon!

I took a few shots of Rory Smith with FM after the Christopher Shannon show.

Love the yellow top, didn't really love his runway look.

I didn't manage to get any good shots from the Christopher Shannon show unfortunately.

James Long Fall Winter 2012 Finale

The video I took of the James Long finale. 

Not the best, not the worst. 

It was a fast show, didn't love it as much as I loved last summer. 

I will take some of the sweaters however. 

Yannick Abrath at James Long

I was able to catch Yannick Abrath before he left.

Spoke to him, introduced myself this time, he was friendly.

The eyes were amazing in real life too.

Dan Felton at London Fashion Week

Somerset House was swarming with models for a while. Dan Felton was just hanging out I was almost unsure it was 100% him so I didn't say anything.

BUT then it started raining and the models all ran inside.

It was surreal seeing them in real life, like finding a mythical creature…

Benjamin Eidem at James Long

My encounter with Benjamin Eidem was short and pretty much non-existent.

I got some okay photos of him on the runway, then when he left backstage he was on his phone then immediately rushed off inside Somerset House.

Next time Benjamin…next time

Alexander Beck at James Long

This has been a historic day! The day I photographed Alexander Beck.

Before the show started I had a feeling I would be seeing Mr. Beck at the James Long show, since he walked it last season and he was doing London Fashion Week.

Hanging around Somerset House after the Christopher Shannon show the clothes for James Long arrived and the bag heading towards me was the look Alexander would wear.

So as soon as the show finished I rushed out to the crew & model entrance to try catch the models.

I asked to get his photo in the panic of it all I forgot to introduce myself but he did ask my name which was very polite on his part not mine…

Video of the show soon, and so many more photos of male models…

Thanks again Alexander!

Christian Blanken Fall Winter 2012

I took this video of the Christian Blanken Fall Winter 2012 finale.

The quality isn't the best but I didn't have my good camera with me unfortunately.

Hope to get better quality video TOMORROW!

BUT sharp eyes MAY spot me in this video! I'm in between a white i-Phone and i-Pad holding my black Sony wearing a Navy cardigan…  

London Men's Day Tomorrow…

'The Boys of London' by Justin Wu for co:lab (FTAPE.COM) from F.TAPE on Vimeo.

I'm off to Men's day tomorrow! I imagine this is what it will look like.

Will have lots of updates I hope, unless I just drop dead from the sheer excitement.

Wish me luck and lots and lots of models!

Carlotta Actis Barone Fall Winter 2012 - 2013

My review is still under review so enjoy the photos I took at Carlotta Actis Barone.

The show made use of a fog machine if your wondering about the quality of the images.

Stay tuned for more backstage photos, backstage photos including MALE MODELS!
