The beautiful “Studs” series shot by Nick Knight and styled by Simon Foxton for V Magazine earlier this year is more than just an editorial: The photographer’s fashion website SHOWstudio has not only produced a film that accompanies the pictures, but has also documented the shooting itself and has published interviews with the models. You find all that HERE. Source for the pictures below is the blog of make-up artist Bea Sweet, who was also part of the project. Full credits below the pictures.

The Antwerp Fashion Museum (MoMu) is currently showing the first big solo retrospective of fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck entitled “Dream the World Awake”, which opened on September 9 and will run until February 2. The exhibition shows Walter’s work of three decades, reveals his sources of inspiration and investigates central topics of his designs. It also features a collaborative project between Walter, photographer Nick Knight and stylist Simon Foxton, who together have worked on a fashion film, which presents some sort of “best of” of the designer’s work, as well as on a huge photomontage (detail on top), which seems to be one of the highlights of the exhibition (you can watch the video below and scroll through the whole image on SHOWstudio). It  will appear as a retrospective editorial in the Autumn/Winter issue of GQ Style.
Furthermore, the MuMa also has digitalized all videos of Walter’s past collections and will post two of them every week on this page. I posted one of the first two ones below, it’s the runway show of the W&LT Winter 1996/1997 collection “Wonderland” (the other one is a rather boring video of the exhibition opening). For more detailed information about the show check out the MoMu website + there are also interviews with Walter about the exhibition on Dazed Digital and on AnOther Web.

Photographer Nick Knight has directed a short film called “Too Lee, With Love, Nick”, a homage to fashion designer Alexander McQueen. The film has been screened at the British Fashion Council Awards yesterday for the first time and features an unreleased song by Björk, for whom Knight has shot the video to “Pagan Poetry” in 2002.
Next summer The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will show an exhibition entitled “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty”, a collection of over 100 of McQueens most important creations. The exhibition will be on display for the public from May 4 to July 31. Via omg blog.

The current issue of AnOther Man features this awesome editorial called “Body Language”, a collaboration between photographer Nick Knight, stylist Alister Mackie as well as Lucy McRae and Bart Hess, two artists from Amsterdam I posted about a year ago. The duo has designed a couple of their typical sculptural body extensions for the shoot. You can find the complete series of photographs on YVY mag.
