For the latest episode of Fashion Week International, Charlet Duboc and the Vice team traveled to Tel Aviv to report on its two-day fashion week, explore Israel’s anorexia epidemic, witness the controversial work of fashion photographer Lior Nordman, and meet the alluring women of the Israel Defense Forces. Except they never quite got around to that last part, since on November 15, when the crew was busy filming and lining up their interviews, the commercial capital was hit by a missile attack for the first time in 20 years.
While most ladies are swathed in maternity clothes at eight months, Girls star Jemima Kirke is just letting it all hang out for Vice.
A surgical room in Seoul, the ghettos of Kingston, Jamaica, and a sex hotel in Rio aren’t usually the kinds of places you’d expect to find a fashion journalist. But then, as the host of Vice‘s web series Fashion Week Internationale Charlet Duboc explains, “that’s because it’s not really fashion journalism, is it?”
The series that opened our eyes to what really goes on behind the scenes of fashion weeks around the world is back, and this time around, they’re traveling to Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, and Kingston, Jamaica. The trailer for the second season of Vice‘s Fashion Week Internationale is now live, and the web series promises a look into runway shows that are a far cry from the ones we’ve been trekking up to Lincoln Center for all week.
Last night, the night before the first official day of New York Fashion Week, we went back to college.
In the latest installment of Vice’s Fashion Week Internationale series, host Charlot Duboc heads to Phnom Penh to check out Cambodia’s first fashion week. But while the creative influx is inspiring, the women and girls who take the night bus to garment factory jobs for which they are paid only $2 per day is much less so.
Vice’s Fashion Week Internationale is one of our favorite web series to date — and this week’s episode does not disappoint. Host Charlet Duboc heads to Medellin to check out what Colombia Fashion Week is all about, where she learns about the changing face of beauty in a city known more for cocaine and plastic surgery than clothes.
Designers Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanabe, and Jean Paul Gaultier were seeing the world in sepia tone for inspiration for their Spring 2011 menswear collection — but why the digression from reality? Were they fantasizing about tales of the vagrants penned by Western authors like Owen Wister and Zane Grey, or were they thinking of hypothetical situations at an eighteenth century gentlemen’s club after-party? Between you and me, we think it’s all of the above.
