In “we never saw that coming” news, Valentino hired Terry Richardson to shoot their latest accessories campaign. The image is shot in Terry’s signature style, a high contrast blown out image which really plays up the punch of the rock stud styles (and the rock star photographer’s tattoos). We give it a huge thumbs up and applaud creative directors Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri’s new direction from the hazy aesthetic we’ve come to expect from a Valentino ad. What do you think?
You may remember Cédric Charlier working for (or being let go from) Cacharel, but he’s worked under the tutelage of amazing designers before releasing his own collection last year. He won the Moêt Hennessy Fashion Award in 1998, worked at Céline for two years under Michael Kors, then worked for Alber Elbaz’s team at Lanvin for another six years. His latest, now available at Curve, was inspired by Balenciaga’s 1966 Spring Collection – a linear offering that is simple in appearance but architectural in construction, with doses of crimson, chartreuse, and healthy helpings of graphic black and white. We’re so excited to represent Cedric, and look forward to more of what his eye has to offer.
The famous NewYork-based menswear designer, known for his twist on preppy tailoring, launched his eyewear collection in 2011 and is THE frame to have on your face! Thom’s glasses epitomize the perfect blend of vintage influence and modern execution and we’re completely obsessed. From Lady Gaga and Usher to Dwyane Wade and Miley Cyrus – it’s difficult to find a face in the press that isn’t graced with his work. These future classics are now available at Curve, and in the future, expect a shipment of his collaboration with Dita….
The story of Gareth Pugh is very interesting and inspiring: he got his start very early, working as a costume designer for the English National Youth Theatre. He attended Central St. Martins, and his final presentation attracted the attention of the senior fashion editor of Dazed & Confused magazine, who placed one of his designs on the magazine’s cover shortly thereafter. He then interned for Rick Owens after graduating, and famously produced one of the most memorable shows of London Fashion Week with no assistant, no studio, and very little money. His wearable art has been compared to Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and John Galliano, and Anna Wintour, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, and Roisin Murphy are avid supporters of his work.
In 2010, Gaia Repossi was named artistic director of the eponymous Maison Repossi. The Italian jewelry house, founded in 1925 by her grandfather, is now located on the historic Place Vendome in Paris. Known for its rich legacy in design, elegance, and prestige, many of the pieces are still made in the work rooms that were used in the 1920s. Gaia’s modern take on her family’s heritage has lifted Repossi to the very top of ever fashion lover’s list! Repossi continues to make new history with major fashion house collaborations with Alexander Wang and Altuzarra while still preserving the ancient craft of the metalsmith.

We are super excited to announce that Proenza Schouler has returned to Curve! The New York boys, who are famous for their innovative and directional pieces (and of course, their IT bags), seem to be moving in more of a streetwear direction with their resort collection, on par with what we see in Tommy Ton’s street style pics as of late. Their boyfriend jeans, slouchy t-shirts, relaxed tweed sets, and leather pieces are still forward: even while being relaxed. That’s the Proenza touch!
