In today’s Cinéma de Mode we have the prelude to artist Gabriel Shalom‘s new project Faces of N., an incredible video which questions the multiplicity of identity and the way clothes express our different personalities. The two-minute prelude portrays Nicole Roscher from the fashion label Von Bardonitz in her personal wardrobe dressing in front of a three-paneled mirror, which reflects a visual counterpoint of images of the different outfits. The video is an introduction to a new live audio-visual performance premiering this spring in Berlin. Check it out after the jump!
Today, our Cinéma de Mode brings to you the first ever & Other Stories‘s fashion film, Rendez-vous & Other Stories, a humoristic and fun short directed by Los-Angeles based filmmaker Wendy McColm. The film is a satirical story which confronts the cliché portrayal of female characters within the fashion genre by capturing the tormented soul of self-indulgent bohemian French actress and blogger Jeanne Damas who cannot decide which clothes from the & Other Stories’ summer collection to wear.

Winter holidays in the snow are just not my cup of tea. You won’t find me skiing in Hovden or spending a week in Kitzbühel any time soon. That’s probably because every memory I have of being in the snow consists of having flights cancelled, wet feet, or falling on my butt. But that’s fine, luckily there’s plenty of opportunity to indulge in a short holiday for slothful people like me. For example, I’m perfectly content with taking a city break to look around museums. That’s what I actually did a bunch of weeks ago; I packed my bag, took a flight to the fascinating Turkish city Istanbul and had the time of my life. Read why and how after the jump!
