Benetton: SISLEY Fall/Winter 2006/2007 Men's Fashions

SISLEY: Men’s Collection.

Sisley Men Fashions 2006/2007

Benetton has announced the Sisley Men's fashions for winter 2006

No banal “fashion” for the Sisley man in winter 2006, but
something more: sophistication, style, culture and topicality.
Each kind of apparel is rich in content, innovation, creativity
and, of course, elegance – even in those cutting-edge looks that
seem to express themselves through provocation and a break with
tradition. Aesthetic shocks which nonetheless speak of fine
tailoring, of design research and a demanding passion for
beautiful things.

City blues: the cool executive’s formal style lowers its guard
and gives in to sentimentalism. A nostalgic heart beats under
that sober pewter-grey suit, so turtleneck sweaters and pink
shirts appear together with indigo jeans, a coat in a milky-
white shade or with tone-on-tone micro patterns, a blue velvet
blazer, a sand parka and a sleeveless pullover with an
intellectual air, to wear with a white shirt and purple silk

From Russia with love: the world’s 007s spy no more, the
barriers are down, the iconographies of East and West mingle
together. The result is a tongue-in-cheek blend of denim and
dress uniforms, military shirts complete with medals and urban
bomber jackets, short nylon jackets from beyond the Iron Curtain
and suburban sweatshirts, Red October pullovers and caban
jackets, sneakers on their feet and soldiers’ field service caps
on their head. And permeated throughout with Cyrillic graphics
and post-Soviet symbols.

Revolver: or, even the baddies want to look good. Pitch black
and shiny rain straight from goth comic strips and mystery
science fiction create dark suits, nylon or nappa short jackets,
down-filled blazers, tight jeans, zipped or V-neck pullovers
over gangster-stripe or optical white shirts. Nail buttons,
studs, zips and other nickel details add force to force.

North east: the casual style gets adventurous and starts
exploring, travelling north to absorb local colour: ice, tundra,
birch, embers, salmon. Casual moleskin, wool or corduroy
overwear to wear with garment-dyed tartan trousers, chunky
frogged sweaters. Fleece and jacquard wool jackets are worn
easily with jeans or multiple-pocket army-green cotton trousers.
Mottle flammé sweaters to wear under a musher’s parka. Patchwork
polo shirts and tartan shirts emphasise an adventure style that
most people will wear in town too. StumbleUpon reddit Facebook Google Plus Tweet This Seed This on Newsvine

Benetton Fashion : SISLEY Fall/Winter 2006/2007

SISLEY: Women’s Collection.

Sisley Benetton Fashion

Increasingly acclaimed as a trend-setting brand, each season
Sisley presents cutting-edge styles in tune with the
international fashion mood.
Perfectly in harmony with the latest
trends, yet with the good taste and restraint needed to give
pleasure. Femininity is the byword for next winter’s collections
and is seen everywhere, even in the more masculine styles or the
most sporty or casual fabrics.

City chic: an urban look, 24/7 sophistication. Black, blue and
hints of pink colour the whole wardrobe, with updated 19th-
century touches of lace, frills and jabots. Close-fitting coats
with decorative buttons or wrapover, tie-belt cloaks are worn
over clingy skirts and polo-neck sweaters. The Empire-line
sheepskin jacket marries low-waisted trousers. The power suit
opens to reveal sheer jersey sweaters, knotted or frilled, and
the seductive all-day dress goes from knitted fabric to velvet
and from jersey to printed silk crepe to emphasise a tongue-in-
cheek, self-confident brand of femininity.

Uptown girl: the aggressive style acquires a fair amount of
cheekiness. Lingerie T-shirts go with army-style overwear -
especially an updated version of the flying jacket in faux mink
– generously low-cut pullovers, ultra-romantic shrugs, sprayed-
on jeans that leave nothing to the imagination and microskirts
for fantastic legs. The treated and softened wool and cotton
fabrics are coloured in faded shades of grey, teal and purple.

Baby baby: acrobatic creativity, in other words childish
shaping, masculine fabrics and feminine colours. The triple pike
jump is executed perfectly et voilà: a supremely wearable
wardrobe. White and red overwear makes a striking difference: a
little coat worthy of the “clever pupil”; a double-breasted
jacket in herringbone wool with a deep knitted band around the
waist; a Prince of Wales check short jacket with a college look.
Soft low-waisted dresses of printed jersey with a plastron and
dolly styling, or silk crepe with Art Nouveau bouquets. Soft
angora or mohair baby knitwear with inlays and different

: in other words the point where different moods,
atmospheres and influences, which started from who knows where,
meet together. The colours and style of the English countryside
are seen in the tweed trousers worn with a heavy knitted jacket
with a Torchon collar, and in the high-waisted velvet check
blazer worn with a Prince of Wales check wool/cotton gathered
skirt. Another mood for the rather masculine vintage coat worn
over faded jeans; yet another, vaguely gipsy, for the flouncy
denim skirts worn with loose, floral blouses, or voile skirts
with purple and green flower sprays worn with long, clingy
jersey T-shirts. The colours are earthy with bold dashes of
saffron, sage and sky blue.

Street kick: a style born in the street and worn for fun.
Colours on denim, colours on blue and army green, colour on
tartan and more colour on padded jackets. Wool cloth, heavy
cotton, velvet and fleece together with denim create easy-to-
wear clothes with something of the gym and something of the
army: the tracksuit jacket, the short jacket, the Bermudas, the
warm pullover, the sleeveless cardigan, oversize or leather
trousers. StumbleUpon reddit Facebook Google Plus Tweet This Seed This on Newsvine

New York Film Academy Invests In Panasonic’s Ultra-Versatile, Solid-State HD Camcorders For Instruction And Production

Panasonic Film Making Camcorder

Considered one of the most innovative fixtures of film education in the world, the New York Film Academy (NYFA), with campuses in Manhattan New York, Universal Studios Los Angeles, and St. Catherine’s College Oxford University England, recently purchased 12 Panasonic hand-held, production-quality AG-HVX200 DVCPRO HD camcorders.

NYFA workshops offer an intensive, hands-on experience that gives students the opportunity to develop their creative skills to the fullest extent possible. In all filmmaking workshops, each student writes, produces, directs, and edits his own films. In addition, they each assist other members of the crew in the roles of director of photography and assistant camera person, providing all with extensive set experience.

Panasonic Film Making Camcorder

According to the academy instructors, “The Panasonic HVX200 allows the new student filmmaker to work in the HD world earlier. The camera makes it more accessible to reach a higher-quality picture, and reduces the cost to achieve that image. And the solid-state medium challenges the filmmaker to go back to a more decisive and economical approach to shooting.”

These camcorders are supplied by Panasonic Broadcast & Television Systems Co, - a unit company of Panasonic Corporation of North America. PANASONIC is the brand of Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. of Japan. StumbleUpon reddit Facebook Google Plus Tweet This Seed This on Newsvine
