Haute Banderas

Antonio Banderas is following his dream.  He enrolled himself into fashion school at the prestigious Central Saint Martins.

FashionSchool

2nd week of studies @ Central St Martin. Intense, exciting, serious and fun all the same time.

The name Antonio Banderas doesn’t quite evoke images of haute fashion, or really style in general, but all that is bound to change. The actor has revealed that he is currently knee-deep in school work and it’s only his second week at London’s top fashion university, Central Saint Martin. Draped over a row of mannequins (although there is no actual draping on the mannequins) Mr. Banderas shared that his education so far has been “intense, exciting, serious and fun all the same time.” Intense is a rather fitting word for the experience, as this is the same alma mater where John Galliano, Riccardo Tisci, and the late Alexander McQueen received an education in the mastery of fashion design.

Dazed Digital found a clip from Mr. Banderas’s appearance on the talk show Loose Women, where the actor promised that he has no intention of retiring from Hollywood. “Of course, I won’t stop my professional life, I’ll continue acting, directing, but this is a new thing,” he remarked. He also noted that enrolling at Central Saint Martin has been a longtime dream of his and that it actually makes him feel “young.” So which of his most beloved characters do we think Mr. Banderas will be inspired by for his first collection? We’d like to see a mask à la Zorro, a serious pair of boots, similar to Puss in Boots and maybe even a chic leather vest, borrowed from Shrek.

Hello Dream Boat

OctoberRinging in the month of October is dream boat, Sean O’Pry.  Yeah yeah, this is a dated Spring photoshoot, but you can’t help but agree that this may be one of the most magical photo magic of all time.  Supersonic stylist Way Perry is the actual dream boat here.  Check out Way Perry’s Instagram for mega fashion inspiration and heaps of seedy hilarity.  And Way, if you are out there listening, we’d love if you’d instagram a peek into your wardrobe.  We are willing to bet fat stacks that Way’s wardrobe takes you to a sort of cosmic Narnia, where you walk into a Labyrinth of fancy fashion freaks.  Not too deep inside the the wardrobe, we’d be greeted by Simon Doonan, dressed as the Queen of England of course, whom leads us onto a psychedelic boat ride.  We begin to trip on the hundreds fishnet clad legs rowing us away in unison.  Cue in the floaters.

There we go on again with our heads in the clouds.. or nosing in a stylists wardrobe.  Damn you dream boats.

Photographer Alexei Hay, stylist Way Perry and model Sean O’Pry teamed up for a editorial in GQ Germany.  Love the silhouettes and most importantly the fun factor.  I wish I could crawl into these photographs and play with the clothes and people behind it.
