JACKIE MY OBSESSION, A PHOTOGRAPHY ALBUM BY RON GALELLA

JACKIE MY OBSESSION, A PHOTOGRAPHY ALBUM BY RON GALELLA

Dear iDEALS, its Sunday afternoon and I find myself on my mom's sofa, exited to watch a documentary I just bought, titled "SMASH HIS CAMERA", a film centering on the life and work of Ron Galella that examines the nature and effect of paparazzi as well as his obsession with Jackie Onassis as his "subject" (in the film he describes her as his "girlfriend") as well as other stories featuring Hollywood stars between the years 1960-1990.

JACKIE MY OBSESSION, A PHOTOGRAPHY ALBUM BY RON GALELLA

There is plenty to see in this fabulous documentary, directed by Leon Gast, that makes it fascinating from beginning to end. All the stars are respectfully represented in an intriguing way and in most cases makes you want to know who they are (I know them all of course).

JACKIE MY OBSESSION, A PHOTOGRAPHY ALBUM BY RON GALELLA

As my interest for Ron Galella grows further, I am happy to discover of a book publication, announced to be released in November 2012.

"Launching November 2012, Jackie: My Obsession is a sequel of sorts to Ron's first title, Jacqueline (1976), but the difference is that this book keeps in line with Galella’s more recent photo book releases. Here the emphasis is placed squarely on Ron's photographs of Jackie and the Kennedys, where Jacqueline was more of an autobiographical entry. To that end, Jackie: My Obsession is a 12.5x14", 400-page, gilded masterpiece, with beautiful, heavy stock that contains many never-before-published images. Rounding out the book are written contributions by Matthias Harder, Chief Curator of the Helmut Newton Foundation, and Valentino, along with quotes from various sources, including Michael Kors, Andy Warhol, and Tom Ford. Two editions are currently being produced: a standard edition of 2300, with a white, canvas-bound hardcover, and hits of gold foil; and a very limited slip-cased edition of 200 that includes a signed and numbered 11x14" print of the cover image—Ron's famous Windblown Jackie."

SOMF-Ariadne’s Thread

-9

The new SOMF collection is inspired by the myth of "Ariadne's Thread" where both its ancient and current values transcend and provide the fundamental inspiration. SOMF wonder through a modern age laby- rinth shaped with obstacles, creating an intuitive map of trial and error, taming the minotaur and reaching for the light.

-6-7

The brand's DNA abides in the tattoo tops and collants which are superimposed in this collection with the introduction of laser cut forms enabling the eye to focus and translate the design. The prints consist of story telling representations as an homage to greek ceramic art. The laser cuts form the illusion of lace carrying on the layering mentality of the brand, aspiring the buyer to personalize any itemized look and adopt it to his/her wardrobe regardless age and current trends.

Le Crazy Horse de Paris presents Forever Crazy

20121011 194800 Le Crazy Horse de Paris presents Forever Crazy

Paris has come to London in the most delightful way. It’s an evening of burlesque: The Crazy Horse de Paris presents Forever Crazy. I didn’t take any pictures of the actual show – but I took all these images in the venue – which is a huge tent on the South Bank. It was an evening of escapism with tiny costumes that were very sexy. It’s quite fun how sexy the dancers were with just a hint of clothing – although more naked than clothed!

You can see the show in London until December 16th, 2012
