Fry it Up in a Pan

What do you do if you're a model and you've just finished a long day of making bacon at the shows? If you're Kim, Alison, Jonas and Matthew, you go to Iekeliene's pad in Brooklyn for a pancake party. And you invite Sonny Vandevelde to take pics...

Pandora's Bag

Recognizing the mass potential of the Internet, Marc Jacobs—already a Facebook freak—named a bag after his #1 Filipino blogger and fan, Bryanboy, a little while back. Now Bryanboy—who's full of pithy, catchphrase-y things like "I'm so gay I sweat glitter"—is returning the favor by hauling his gaysian butt to New York to make a documentary, handycam-style, about the object of his infatuation, taking in both of Marc's collections. We were going to scoop that a few days ago, but forgot, then read it in WWD, which is also reporting the 25-minute short film will be produced by Lost In Translation's Stephen Schible. Anyway, we didn't realize Marcman and Bryanboy hadn't yet met; this backstage photo by Sonny Vandevelde shows the magical moment...

Modelizer: Hanne Gaby Odiele

On a slow day of New York shows, Hint's backstage photographer, Sonny Vandevelde, spent an afternoon with Belgian model Hanne Gaby Odiele (Women)—waiting, rushing, getting lost, frolicking and waiting some more...

Glad Grads

Buzzing with excitement, the Antwerp Academy’s graduation show this year once again delivered the goods. Shown to an international jury that included Kris Van Assche, Tim Blanks and Jefferson Hack, the fourth-year collections were truly innovative and technically accomplished. Glen Martens’ cocoon coats in luxurious fabrics and layered origami white dresses were terribly chic yet forward-looking. In menswear, Yu Fukumoto offered an irreverent take on classic tailoring, with models chasing imaginary butterflies in crisp, white shirts, impeccable cotton shorts and straw hats. Best shoes went to Yuima Nakazato, whose nude and gold leather with insane metallic heels aptly echoed the futuristic and constructed feel of his armor-like collection. Ek Thongprasert, meanwhile, had the cutest show concept, sending couples down the runway together, building his interchangeable collection around the notions of love and intimacy. His black necklaces had a surreal, Jean Cocteau-like feel, spelling out the words “Love” and “Dream” to a touched audience, who no doubt wondered if this might be the last time he—or any of these students—feels as rosy about his chosen profession.
