Ode to Abraham

You don’t really think about it, but great minds like Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Cristóbal Balenciaga didn’t come up with all of their great work by themselves. They had great minds accompanying them, working with them, creating with them.
One of those helpers was the Swiss textile firm Abraham, a company that was specialized in printing silks and delivered exclusive fabrics to these designers. Today, the Abraham archives are housed at the Swiss National Museum in Zurich, but from March 13th till August 11th, Belgian fashion museum MoMu in Antwerp will host a collection of colourful textile prints along with couture silhouettes by all of the designers mentioned above. Go see the exhibition if you can, and combine the trip with some serious fabric shopping on your own. Hey, great minds need help too right? [EH]

American Runway Revolution

This documentury I definitely wanna see. And so do you if you’re into fashion history and even a little bit of politics. Here’s the story: in 1973, the famous Palace of Versailles is the host of a fashion face off between five American designers and five French couturiers. The event is staged by Eleanor Lambert, creator of Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List. She invited designers as Halston, Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, Anne Klein and Stephen Burrows to represent the United States.
The French team included Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Pierre Cardin and Emanuel Ungaro. This event had a profound impact on the fashion and modelling industry, Paris being the arrogant leader of the pack and America taking their positions as underdogs very seriously. To stun the world, the Americans made the – for that time groundbreaking – decision to cast black models only. “To actually have an exhibition with 12 Afro-American models at one time, in one show, in a palace in France, representing the United States and our fashion industry, was legendary,” said film director Riley Draper. ‘It was historical.” This documentary features interviews with the likes of Pat Cleveland, Grace Mirabella and several fashion historians, and will premiere during New York Fashion Week in September. Another reason for a trip overseas. [EH]

bye, bye, Yves?

Rumours confirm (yep, contradiction in terminus) that new appointed Creative Director Hedi Slimane plans for a name change for this luxury brand. Leaving Yves behind and move on with Saint Laurent Paris. Call us old fashioned, but one should never change a name that strong. Isn’t that an omen for bad luck? Like changing the name of your boat (so not done). His initials are amongst the strongest logo’s within the world of luxury. Don’t touch. [KB]
