Videos of the Moment: Gucci Through the Seasons

Gucci is the embodiment of fabulosity--only spelled with a G. Watch the advertisements, from Fall 2007 to Spring 2011, and get a feel of the brand's value proposition. Yes, it is luxurious to the point of sensational. But is there more to be desired despite the signature full-frontal ostentation?

P.S.: Does anyone notice how well-coiffed their heads are despite all the movements? Gucci = pretty hair. Gucci mane?

Quick Vid of the Moment: Pre-McGibbon Chloé

Around 2008, Paulo Melim Andersson took charge as Chloé's creative director. He definitely took the "girly" house to a different direction with his quirky, youthful, and eclectic vision. I personally liked his collection, but the reception across retailers wasn't quite as warm as it should have been. Though he has been replaced by Hannah McGibbon, his influence is definitely something worth looking at.

Quick Vid of the Moment: Earn Your Dancing Stripes

I recently saw the Spring-Summer 2011 video campaign for Prada, and I'm amazed by its thumb-thumping energy! Isn't it more fun to welcome Spring with some hypnotic gyrations and groovy moves? But to complete the picture, festoon yourself in the most daring stripes and brogues. That fur stole is totally optional.

P.S.: Happy Valentine's Day! Enjoy the non-holiday day.
