In today’s Cinéma de Mode we have the latest episode of i-D Magazine‘s series More Than a Model, which stars 17-year-old sporty schoolgirl and supermodel Rosie Tapner in the beautiful Berkshire countryside. The brilliant film directed by French collective AB/CD/CD and styled by Julia Sarr-Jamois, shows an extremely skilled Rosie playing Lacross in a Neil Barrett jumper, sprinting after the ball in a Nike look, hopping onto her horse in Gucci jodhpurs, and finally sitting down for tea in a Chanel twinset. Enjoy her sporting prowess in the i-D tutorial after the jump!

One of the biggest – if not the THE biggest – highlights of the fashion world is happening today at 10:06h in the morning: The womenswear fashion show of Louis Vuitton for Autumn/Winter 2014-15 in Paris. The LV shows are not simply runway shows, they are spectacles with big impressive sets, stunning designs and the creme de la creme of celebrities in the front row. If you don’t believe me head over to Dazed Digital that have some wonderful photos of the last show that had glamorous escalators, a mary-go-round and a fountain. Of course it’s super hard to get a ticket, that’s why Louis Vuitton is also streaming the show live on their website as well as on a small selection of blogs such as ours. So if you want to be amazed by the latest Vuitton show, look no further than behind the jump for the live stream.
In the latest episode of our Cinema de Mode we have the beautiful 6-minute fashion short Awake, by the Berlin Fashion Film Festival Award-winner Martin Monk, in collaboration with Berlin-based designer Hien Le & Interview Magazine. Awake is an aesthetic exploration of dream and reality, telling the story of a couple that has yet to be found. Highlight of the film is Hien Le’s stunning FW 2014 collection, with its classic and simple cuts inspired by modern architectural silhouettes. Enjoy the film after the jump.
Last night, out of nowhere, Swedish indie electro pop act iamamiwhoami returned with a brand new song titled fountain. As with all her previous releases the track is accompanied by a beautiful music video that shows the mysterious singer dancing at the shore and on a boat with a glass of ashes. The song is pretty much along the lines of her previous album kin that I considered to be quite awesome. I’m quite curious what this new era will be like and what story she is going to tell this time. So hop over the jump to enjoy the new video.
Get ready for Berlin Fashion Week with the new episode of our Cinéma de Mode: the playful fashion film ABC of Fashion by British magazine i-D in collaboration with music video director Harrys and music sensation Toro Y Moy. The video spells the letters of the alphabet pairing a new look from all the major designers with an item from each letter that represent the various current trends in fashion. Revise your fashion knowledge and enjoy the A-B-C rundown after the jump!
The first Cinéma de Mode of the new year brings to you the incredibly beautiful fashion film Immortal, a Sorapol production directed by Conor Gorman. The film features the Autumn/Winter 2013/14 collection of Bangkok-born designer Sorapol Chawaphatnakuland in collaboration with British artist Daniel Lismore, which is an elegant mix of dramatic couture creations and equally stunning ready-to-wear pieces. The story behind the designs is based on a young girl who was given to a Chinese Emperor, and then travelled across the Asian continent to her final destination, collecting treasures as she goes to overcome the feelings of delusion and imprisonment. Discover Sorapol’s decadent luxury after the jump.
In the latest edition of our Cinéma de Mode we have the gorgeous short film The Cabin by Guy Aroch, accompanying the Free People‘s December catalogue. The mini movie stars Jacques Naude and Noot Seear as a couple working out where their relationship is going and seeking refuge in the cabin in Maine where their love first began. The movie captures not only their genuine and passionate love but it also explores the beautiful bohemian style of the new collection, including cold-weather sweaters, long skirts, ripped jeans, paisley scarves and floppy hats. Run away in the woods and enjoy some romance after the jump!
There is not much going on here on iHeartBerlin during Christmas as we are all home with our families stuffing our bellies with yummy Holiday food and chocolate.

In today’s Cinéma de Mode we have the outstanding experimental fashion film At the End of the World to the Left which showcases Julian Zigerli‘s upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 menswear line in collaboration with artist Katharina Grosse. The abstract video by Michael Patrick Perez consists of organic movements and bleedings of pixels and colors, which put the viewer into a timeless and spaceless state of mind. Discover how the incredible designer plays with mixed boundaries, structures and layers after the jump!
In today’s Cinéma de Mode we have the beautiful Gillian Anderson, best known for playing Special Agent Dana Scully in The X-Files. The video is a sneaky taster of the shoot with Rankin for the launch of Hunger Magazine issue 05, and Anderson looks incredibly stunning and sexy in it. Enjoy some beauty after the jump!
