Where do you know her from?
Lea Seydoux is a well known french actress that is making her mark on Hollywood! She recently starred with Tom Cruise in Ghost Protocol. But she has been in several other films such as those pictured above. She’s spunky, sexy, and smart. Geesh! I hate her….
You will also recognize her as the look of Prada’s new “CANDY” line of bath and perfume products. Prada is targeting a younger more impulsive woman with the, lets just say,…highly unusual video. She’s a nutty and violent tease with a dash of unabashed craziness. But none can argue about her spunky prowess and intriguing air. As for the perfume, CANDY is a wonderful mixture of vanilla and caramel with notes of balsam dancing around. I am very picky with scents but this one is a sure winner with me! Just in case anyone is reading this that would like to get me an anniversary gift (ahem…husband) I really, really, really like the way CANDY smells. If only it would make me young, smart and sexy…I’ve got the spunky stuff down. (smile)
The marketing team were after a more impulsive Prada woman with this video. I’d say it is a slam dunk for the “impulsive” part.Have a look and let me know what your take is.
Marios Schwab wanted to be a ballet dancer when he was young child but by the time he was 12 he was dreaming of fashion and soon moved to Austria to begin his training as a tailor and fashion student. Thankfully for the fashion world he did not return to his original desires of dance but transposed that gracefulness onto the silhouettes that now grace the catwalks of fashion week all over the world.
He graduated (“best student award”) from Esmod Fashion School of Berlin. He then moved to London and worked for his MA in Womenswear Fashion from Central Saint Martins. By 2005 he launched his own label and by 2007 he made his debut at London Fashion Week. He secured ‘Best New Designer’ from British Fashion Awards for 2006 and 2007 and the annual Swiss Textiles Award in 2007.
Marios was appointed chief designer for Halston in New York by 2009 but amid many internal problems with the company did not renew his contract for 2012.
Mario is a designer who produces clothing which has returned to the loveliness of class, the allure of the female form, the demure haunt of hats and gloves and embroidery and naughty but nice peek-a-boo surprises of under slips and soft yet surprising colors. I understand why the company Halston wanted him to be the designer at the helm. In it’s heyday…this was Halston. These classic designs would bring tears to Roy Halston Frowick‘s eyes. A woman must not be naked to be sexy…she must only be elusive and mysterious.
The woman of Marios Schwab appreciates curves and revealing glimpses of lace and embellishments. When she walks into the room…she is mystique, she is unapproachable yet draws you to be near her…to gaze and take notes of her subtle demeanor… her style.
Marios, the designer of greek and austrian heritage…with modern hallucinations of grace and culture? Kudos.
