At an intimate presentation, cocktail party followed by her new store opening, Stella McCartney began 2012 as she means to go on.

Stella McCartney launches Pre-Fall 2012 and opens new Soho storeStella McCartney’s in between seasons presentations are always something to look forward to. Her autumn 2012 collection was held in New York, at One If By Land, Two If By Sea, a restaurant often voted the most romantic in the city. Models wandered around the candlelit cocktail party drinking champagne and playing pool and backgammon. The roaring fires, huge bouquets of flowers, photography books and a jazz band playing in the corner, meant McCartney’s presentation felt more like a convivial house party, not a stress inducing rushed runway show.

Costume Designer Pierre-Yves Gayraud for Film, ‘Albert Nobbs

Albert Nobbs is a film that has been in the making since Glenn Close starred in the 1982 off- Broadway stage production adapted from George Moore’s short story. Directed by Rodrigo Garcia, Close’s sensitive portrayal of a woman disguising herself as a man in order to find employment and survive in 19th century Ireland is both eccentric and poignant. Helping to bring the man’s world of 19th century Ireland to life is costume designer  Pierre-Yves Gayraud. Gayraud has been splashing films with his costume design in France since the ’90s, where he received a nomination in 1993 for the Cesar Award for Indochine (1992). Stateside, he has worked on The Bourne Identity (2002) and the upcoming Cloud Atlas. – – more
