Cinéma de Mode: Tale of the Two Bloody Marys

Cinéma de Mode: Tale of the Two Bloody Marys

In today’s Cinéma de Mode we present you the new Anne Gorke fashion film The Tale of the Two Bloody Marys directed by Michael Venus in collaboration with Curtisfilm. The movie had its Berlin premiere at the SKYY VODKA SWAP Season Opening with Designer Scouts and features award-winning actress Sandra Hüller and Emily Cox, as well as German actor Paul-Wolff-Plotegg. The second fashion film of the sustainable label tells the story of two sister spending their vacation at the family’s summer residence enjoying the liberation of doing nothing during endless cocktail hours. But when one falls in love with the romance of the other a bitter sweet tragedy begins which will trap the sisters in a time loop for over 40 years. Throughout the fashion film you can see the Spring/Summer 2013 collection Orangerie that stands out through clear lines and architectural forms, a mix of different organic fabrics, such as silk, cotton and for the first time also leather. Enjoy Anne Gorke’s beautiful summer tragedy after the jump.

Last Friday my partner Gina and I hosted another one of our Designer Scouts events, for the second time now during the Press Days. With the special event we launched this year’s collaboration with long-term partner SKYY VODKA. It’s now the fourth year that we will be hosting the SKYY VODKA SWAP MARKET happening in late summer. But this year the swapping will not only take place during one event in Berlin, it will happen throughout the whole year all over Germany. SKYY VODKA teamed up with numerous magazines to raffle off many small private swaps taking place in the homes of the lucky winners who will not only get all the equipment they need for the swap party, but also ingredients for delicious cocktails and amazing designer pieces.

Just like the big SKYY VODKA SWAP MARKET the private swaps will also get designer hosts, for this season we’ve selected the sustainable labels Ica Watermelon and Anne Gorke and the avant-garde labels Franziska Michael and Julia Heuse. Those four designer hosts were introduced at the event on Friday with three stunning fashion presentations and one amazing fashion film. At the exclusive pre-swap we also had a couple of outfits by them as well as from Weekday and Front Row Society. Stay tuned to the SKYY VODKA facebook page to find our more about the private swaps.

Thanks to SKYY VODKA for the long collaboration, to our designers for their great presentations and film, to everyone involved in the making of this event and to our partner uber who supplied an exlcusive limousine service for our guests.
