> Fashion goes Downton Abbey, thus proving my point...

As a sequel to my previous Downton Abbey post, here are the new winter 2012-2013 international campaigns and yes milords & miladies Downton hits again!

First Prada with real actors! William Dafoe, Jamie Bell, Gary Oldman...

Then Ralph Lauren:

Tommy Hilfiger:

And Vuitton:

Simply take a look at these Downton Abbey shots and tell me the inspiration is not direct !?

UPDATE: more than 10 days after I wrote this post, it was announced in the press that Ralph Lauren will be sponsoring Downton! Read all about it here.

Downton Abbey: Perfect Art Direction

I do talk about series inspiring fashion on a regular basis, like when madmen hit the catwalk 2-3 years ago, but this time, even if tweed is everywhere the coming winter, I want to talk about more than just fashion.
Indeed Julian Fellowes did a great job. he wrote an impeccable plot, with fascinating characters, historical expertise... And the acting is simply marvelous, the art direction is what I dream to achieve, the lighting, the filming... I tell you this will be _is already!_ a Classic!
I am totally hooked and desperately waiting for season 3 to start.

What could one ask for more? Maybe Hugh Laurie can regain his British accent and join in...

I leave you with a few photos as always:
