21st Century Woman

June 7, 2011

Há um mês escrevemos sobre o Met Ball, incluindo vídeo da NYMag mostrando a movimentação em torno da troca de roupas de Daphne Guinness para o baile nas vitrines da Barneys.

BARNEYS NEW YORK Showcases The Genius of DAPHNE GUINNESS from Barneys The Window on Vimeo.

Como em uma sequência invertida de eventos, o diretor Brennan Stasiewicz nos apresenta em Daphne’s Window imagens do ícone da moda em seu apartamento na Fifth Avenue em Nova York, preparando-se para a instalação nas vitrines da famosa loja de departamento. Guinness nos mostra sua coleção de peças de Alexander McQueen e uma seleção do arquivo da stylist Isabella Blow, arrecadadas pela socialite em sua totalidade em um leilão no ano passado.

Mostradas no filme, as luvas esculturais criadas por ela em colaboração com o designer de jóias Shaun Leane serão exibidas por Jay Jopling em Londres ao fim deste mês, e em setembro uma retrospectiva no The Museum do Fashion Institute of Technology em Nova York irá homenagear o estilo de Guinness. Enquanto ela se considera “apenas alguém que vive em 2011”, Stasiewicz declara que ”Daphne provoca momentos de encantamento”. A VV concorda com o diretor.

Last month we wrote about the Met Ball, including the Daphne Guinees Change Into an Alexander McQueen Gown in the Barneys Windows video by the NYMag.

As in a reverse sequence of events, documentary filmmaker Brennan Stasiewicz infiltrates the cosseted world of Daphne Guinness in Daphne’s Window. Featuring intimate footage of the icon at her Fifth Avenue apartment, the short follows the eccentric fashion patron and socialite as she prepares for her recent installation in the windows of Barneys New York. The storefront showcased her collection of pieces by designer Lee Alexander McQueen and a selection from the archive of fashion editor Isabella Blow, which Guinness purchased in its entirety last year. The display culminated in a performance art piece in which Guinness dressed for the Met ball in one of the flagship’s windows, modeling a lilac feathered gown designed by McQueen’s Sarah Burton.

Pictured in the film, her sculptural armored glove collaboration with jeweler Shaun Leane will be exhibited by Jay Jopling in a private viewing in London later this month; and in September a retrospective at The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York will pay homage to her style. Whilst the fashion patron considers herself “just someone that’s living in 2011“, Stasiewicz says that “Daphne is someone to take pleasure in, and in many ways, someone who incites moments of wonder”. VV entirely agrees with the director.
