Quentin Jones: Naked with Paint

Quentin Jones: Naked with Paint on

The Coquettish Artist Becomes the Canvas in Her Latest Animated Short

Illustrator, animator and fashion filmmaker Quentin Jones paints a daring self-portrait in an inky new film for NOWNESS. The London-based model and Cambridge philosophy graduate, whose mΓ©lange of hand-drawn and digital animations have appeared in fashion films for Vogue, AnOther and The Hunger, ditched the usual scripts, storyboards and wardrobe to star in a freewheeling two-tone romp. A personal project developed during scarce downtime between projects for Chanel, Victoria Beckham and Kenzo, Jones toyed with the idea of painting directly onto her subject, in this case herself, side-stepping the interruptions of shooting stop-motion. Overlayed with cut-outs and illustrations, Jones’s films are a cheeky wink to Dadaism. “We developed this technique of dropping the ink onto bits of porcelain and blowing it around with a straw, then filming it move and superimposing that onto video,” reveals the autodidact. Regularly raiding art libraries for imagery, Jones can be faced with up to 25,000 jpegs to choose from, requiring an entirely different set of skills. “It's a really geeky stage, but editing could be the most creative part of the process, because you need to have a type of intuition.”

Marc Jacobs Unveils Louis Vuitton's Autumn Winter 2012 Campaign

Marc Jacobs is chugging along with the presentation of their Winter 2012 Campaign.

We’ve barely had any sign of summer, but in fashionland it’s already full-on Autumn Winter 2012 campaign time! So forget bikinis and bellinis, we’re now focused on snuggly knits, wool coats and exactly which pair of ankle boots will be going on the shopping list. But there are some autumn/winter proposals that are more tempting than others, and it's Louis Vuitton who has us wishing the next few months away...

The Parisian fashion house's ad campaign picks up from where the breathtaking show left off: with a full size steam train - built from scratch for the show and stationed at the Louvre for Paris Fashion Week - and tons of the top models alighting with the help of porters hauling their luxurious LV luggage.

Artistic Director Marc Jacobs was keen to continue along this same track and built a replica carriage to fill with ten of his model commuters (and their four porters, naturally). To add to the already dreamy steam team, they were photographed by the legendary Stephen Meisel, styled by Karl Templer, had their hair perfected by Guido and were made-up by makeup maestro Pat McGrath.

'We wanted to maintain the comfortingly luxurious and old-fashioned journey that the collection represented,' Marc explains on this exclusive behind the scenes footage in the luxury brand's making of the campaign video. 'Opulence, the brocades, the beautiful cuts of the suits, and I guess, the distant romantic glamour of travel.'

So hop aboard, Marc wants to you take you on a journey - LV Express stylee… -
