Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy: More Black (And other colors) is Beautiful

  Once again here is another topic that I’ve seen on blogs and forums but haven’t taken the time to post about: ethnic models in fashion week shows. Thankfully there are still some high-end fashion houses who embrace color and allow beautiful ethnic models the chance to strut their stuff down the prestigious runways.

Here are some of the guys from the Givenchy shows the last three seasons. We love it!

Manuel Bozzi: STOP THE CHAINS!

Italian jewelry designer, well wait a minute.  I can’t even call him JUST that.  He is an Italian jewelry ROCK STAR! Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way….shall I proceed? YES INDEED!

Manuel Bozzi has created some amazing new unisex pieces to add to his prestigious collection. This new collection is “STOP” and “FROZEN”.  We’ve featured a few of his masterpieces in our past issues and we simply KRAVE more! We can’t get enough!

Pursuing his latest dream Manuel Bozzi still tells us of bonds, of new ropes and ties interlaced with plots… speaks of games and “enchained” tensions.

This time in fact the chains stop…frozen in a visual illusion that undoes the flow of time and makes us perceive the mobility of precious silver links welded by the stylist into the chains of rigid bracelets. From a harmonic curve a magic bond was born and made “indissoluble” by goldsmith art which mixes tradition and innovation in a enclosing game between parody and technique…

Black IS beautiful!

Black IS beautiful!


Ok. So I’ve seen these photos and this topic posted on various blogs for the last few months and have simply acknowledged and then gone about my day. But yesterday after receiving my new Details mag in the mail, I opened it straight to the new Calvin Klein ad with David Agbodji donned in some super slick, haute as fire ebony garbs. Not only did it remind me that I needed to find something to wear to our upcoming black party, but also that BLACK models are STUNNING!

I truly appreciate Calvin Klein giving this new model this amazing start and creating beautiful fashion imagery for the world to indulge in.
