Thank you! <3 Burberry has an amazing history about dressing expeditioners and aviators. I wish they could make it again, especially for the olympics.

^ Agree, I would love to see them design Olympic uniforms. Stella McCartney's London 2012 were atrocious, Burberry would have kept it both classic and classy.

Behold Rodarte's Costumes for the New York City Ballet
by Izzy Grinspan

Last week, the New York City Ballet debuted "Two Hearts," a ballet by Benjamin Millepied (aka Mr. Natalie Portman) set to music by young composer Nico Muhly. For fashion people, the biggest draw of the performance were the costumes by Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte—simple black and white pieces with cut-out sides that would look just as natural on the street as on the stage."

The gala, to be held at Lincoln Center on Sept. 20, will feature a new ballet set to selections from Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” and a performance of George Balanchine’s “Rubies” as a tribute to the signature use of red by the designer simply known as Valentino, above. “There is so much beauty in the ballet, the grace, the fluidity,” Valentino said in a news release. He said he was honored to have City Ballet “celebrate my work in this way, and I am very passionate about the design of these very special costumes.”

The creative collaboration between New York City Ballet and the fashion world continues. Following the jubilee surrounding the Spring Gala 2012, which saw the debut of Two Hearts signed by Rodarte (featuring dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied), Peter Martins' ballet with costumes by Gilles Mendel and J. Mendel and, as if that weren't enough, a revisitation of Balanchine, whose legendary costumes (created in 1950 by Barbara Karinska) have been completely re-designed by Marc Happel, now comes the turn of the one and only Valentino.

Valentino's press office has made it known that the Last Emperor is working on costumes for the New York City Ballet Fall opening. For now, there isn't any further information regarding the costumes, except for a photo of the couturier at work on two tutus. However, there is no doubt as to the quality of the final result, which will surely be distinguished by the maniacal attention to detail and dream-like grace that have always characterized Valentino's work.

Garavani, born in Voghera in 1932, has just turned 80 and the idea of leaving the scene hasn't even remotely crossed his mind. After the transition his maison made into the hands of designer couple Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, aside from the New York City Ballet project, Valentino has launched a virtual museum-archive, which brings together his work, as well as a retrospective, on the agenda for next fall - in London.

Not a big fan of the Rodarte Ballet costumes you posted Heather. They might look better in motion but seeing the pictures I feel like they're too bland

Altuzarra Designs for New York City Ballet



Following in the footsteps of Rodarte, J. Mendel and Valentino, fashion designer Joseph Altuzarra has designed costumes for a new ballet by choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. The costumes will be presented at the New York City Ballet’s spring gala, on Wednesday, May 8.

“I was thrilled and so excited,” said Mr. Altuzarra of his initial reaction when Mr. Wheeldon approached him last summer on Fire Island. “It’s an amazing opportunity to be able to expand my mind creatively beyond just my collections.”

Mr. Wheeldon will present two ballets for the gala: “Soirée Musicale,” with new costumes by Holly Hynes, and a pas de deux called “A Place for Us,” set to “Interlude” from André Previn’s “Sonata for Clarinet and Piano” and Leonard Bernstein’s “Sonata for Clarinet and Piano.” The pas de deux will feature principal dancers, Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild, for whom Mr. Altuzarra has designed costumes.



“I was particularly interested in men’s dance costumes; its simplicity and how it accentuated and celebrated the dancers’ bodies,” said Mr. Altuzarra. He looked at old rehearsal photos, mainly of Baryshnikov and Nureyev. This inspired his ideas for Mr. Fairchild’s off-white costume with a draped tank top. For Ms. Peck, he designed a pale blue dress with a ruffled skirt and a low back.

Music also played a big part in the designing process. After listening to the pieces for the first time, Mr. Altuzarra said he understood the “sense of playfulness and intrinsic American-ness” of the ballet, which informed the qualities of his designs.

“He had done six or seven different sketches for the girl,” said Marc Happel, the company’s costume director. “He immediately put them down in front of me and asked what I thought was the best. He trusted me.”

Mr. Happel said it was satisfying to work with a designer who is “always willing to listen.” He recalled a time when the early sketches of Mr. Fairchild’s costume featured a low neckline that exposed the chest. “In the U.S., more so than Europe, men’s nipples are something we don’t expose, so I advised him to raise the neckline,” he said.

“It’s interesting working with designers,” said Mr. Happel. “I had some who came and said, ‘This is what it is, don’t question it.’ Then there are designers like Valentino and Joseph who are very hands-on and willing to work with us.”
Ms. Peck praised the “personable” designer for his interest in ballet, and said the dress is very flattering and moves well during her spins and turns.

Mr. Altuzarra understands how a piece of clothing can exaggerate certain movements—he studied ballet for eight years during his childhood.
When asked if he sees another ballet collaboration in the future, he replied absolutely.

“I’m simply very attracted to dance and passionate about it as an art form in general!”

I'm not sure how accurate this is, but according to Deborah Jowitt, Pina Bausch apparently approached Miuccia to alter her main female dancers' outfits while she was in NY in '94. Pina wanted the dresses to have more volume as well as "an intimate cling to the body". Miuccia created separate outfits as a reinterpretation of Rolf Borzik's earlier designs, instead of altering Marion Cito's original dresses. Unfortunately, the dresses were too tight and they didn't have time to bring the clothes back to Miuccia 'cause they were already traveling. Marion Cito, ironically, ended up doing the revised version based on Miuccia's designs (From Beaux Arts mag #196 2000).

Linsel didn't linger too much on that particular issue, it's just something she drops as a sort of fun fact while going on about Peter Pabst and Marion Cito and the rest of the details were pretty vague so I have no idea which show it was supposed to be for. I can't find anything more about it online. I'm hoping someone else here might know more about it.

The French choreographer and founder of the L.A. Dance Project, Mr. Millepied — a former New York City Ballet dancer who will become the director of dance at the Paris Opera Ballet in September 2014 — will present his fifth premiere for City Ballet. Mr. Millepied will use a score written for viola and piano by the composer Nico Muhly, Mr. Millepied’s frequent collaborator.

The second world premiere of the evening from Mr. Peck, the New York City Ballet soloist, will be a work for five dancers set to Lukas Foss’s “Capriccio for Cello and Piano.” The evening’s final premiere is by Mr. Preljocaj and is set to several pieces of music by the composer John Cage.

Benefit-priced tickets for the gala, which include the performance, a pre-performance reception, and a black-tie supper ball after the performance, are available through the ballet company’s special events office at (212) 870-5585.

Walter van Beirendonck's Haute Couture costumes for Ballet de l'Opéra

In a surreal setting with bright colors painted by Olivier Mosset, we witness asexual characters mounted on spikes which changes the frame of a childhood dream, the lead men and women are wearing fluorescent bondage on their torsos, sheathed in color-blocked pants, others are covered in fuchsia tulle that resemble pom-poms.

Yohji Yamamoto Teams With Real Madrid



FASHION FORWARD: Spanish football club Real Madrid is getting a fashion makeover. The 10-time UEFA Champions League winner and reigning European champion has teamed with fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto for a new kit.

Yamamoto imagined a fabled creature, both bird and dragon, applying the artwork to the team’s high-tech jerseys featuring Adidas’s adizero technology as well as an ultra light fabric providing maximum breathability and freedom of movement.

Adidas is an official Real Madrid sponsor.

The company said the beast is meant to portray the football players as “modern-day heroes, achieving mythical status through continued victory.”

Kept entirely in black, Yamamoto’s signature color, the jerseys will make a segue from pitch to street via a limited edition of 1,400 original kits, available from August at select Adidas, Y-3, Yohji Yamamoto and Real Madrid stores.

The kits will retail at 250 euros, or $330 at current exchange, while second series of Yamamoto-inspired jerseys for men, women and children will be priced between 70 euros and 130 euros, or $92 and $172.
