    Fashion sans filtre with Loic Prigent 

    Fashion sans filtre with Loic Prigent 

    In this episode of Fashion: No Filter, Monica and Camille sit down with French fashion documentarian Loic Prigent, who is known for his innovative insider documentaries, narrated in his famous humouristic tone which dissect the fashion world of today. Prigent's films feature fashion icons Jacquemus, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, Tom Ford, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Sonia Rykiel and Chanel -- there are lots more, but that makes for a very long sentence.


    It seems Prigent was always intended for the unique cross-section where fashion and broadcast journalism collide: his breadth knowledge of the industry and its history is profound, his witticisms are endlessly observant. He has essentially invented his own style of fashion reporting, holding up a colourful mirror to the industry itself, whilst allowing us all to take a step back and chuckle about its absurdities. 


    How did the young Loic Prigent growing up on the French Atlantic coast begin dreaming of Fashion Shows? And how, for that matter, did he begin getting invited to them, eventually gaining the trust of the most exclusive houses, to the extent that they invitingly open their doors to his camera crews (a rare feat)


    Tune in to find out how he strikes the balance, what it felt like to sit out a season on account of being quarantined, and to hear his take on some of Paris Fashion Week's most dramatic, silly and controversial happenings For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

    Defining Danish Style with Pernille Teisbaek

    Defining Danish Style with Pernille Teisbaek

    In this episode we travel to Copenhagen Fashion Week with Vestiaire Collective for a live audience with Denmark’s Queen… of style! 
    Over the past decade Pernille Teisbaek’s name has become synonymous with a specific kind of pared-back, sophisticated Scandinavian chic. But the elusive “Look de Pernille” (as her successful blog founded in 2012 was titled) is not limited to local fame — Pernille’s style has inspired an army of international fans — and copycats. Today her Instagram account (775k followers), a symphony of inspiration for fashion-forward minimalists, is one of the industry’s most admired, yet Pernille’s talents are by no means limited to posing. She still works regularly as a stylist, as co-founder of the influencer marketing and consultancy company Social Zoo and, meanwhile, as a full-time mom of two. 


    We catch up with Pernille for a candid conversation on work-life balance, how best to reduce once’s environmental fashion footprint, and that certain je ne sais quoi that defines that defines that elusive Danish elegance.

    Spilling the tea with Bryan Boy

    Spilling the tea with Bryan Boy

    Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of fashion’s elite.
    Ok but seriously, it’s us Fashion No Filter, and we’re back with a feisty little zinger of an episode to ease you into 2020. Our guest is the super-blogger, Instagram star, and outspoken Twitter crusader known as @Bryanboy, and he’s ready to dish the dirt on his experiences as one of fashion’s best known —and most unique—bloggers of the past decade. Not one to shy away from controversy, Bryan opens up about recent rows, including publicly going head-to-head with industry figures like Miraslava Duma and Garance Dore.


    But it’s not all scandal and intrigue. Bryan also lets us in on what its like working as a male influencer within the womenswear world, how he first got his big break, his views on cancel culture and the responsibility that comes with being a member of the LGBT community with a large fashion audience. Put the kettle on, fashion-no-filterites. It’s gonna be a good one…

    Alexandre de Betak on the future of the fashion show

    Alexandre de Betak on the future of the fashion show

    Since it’s always fashion week somewhere, the time has come to talk about the fashion show. 


    If you’ve ever wondered how these unusual events come to life, this episode is for you. Perhaps you’ve stopped in your tracks (or feed scroll) at evidence of a particularly spectacular show or uniquely intricate set. At times these performance aspects can become even more memorable than the fashion itself. Well, chances are a man named Alexandre de Betak with a headphone backstage was calling the shots. De Betak's job is to travel the world year-round dreaming up the most extrordinary sets and parties, catwalks and choreographies.


    In fact, over the past 25 years, the “Fellini of Fashion” has orchestrated over 1,500 fashion sows from the helm of his international production company Bureau Betak. Not only does the producer come up with each universe to compliment his clients’ collections, he is also known for gaining access to some of the world’s most celebrated and protected landmarks in which to do so. This past summer there was the spectacular pink-carpeted Jacquemus show somewhere in a lavender filed in Provence (that could only be found by following an exact GPS location). Or a show by the same designer at Paris' Picasso Museum a few seasons back, an unprecedented feat that no doubt required a certain amount of arm-twisting among the Paris establishment. Ditto for the Dior mirror box de Betak built in Moscow’s Red Square, the one he constructed in the center of the Louvre, or in the garden of the Rodin Museum… locations most creatives can only dream of taking over.


    As your hosts sit down with de Betak to discuss his unique and largely self-invented career trajectory, they also ask the show maestro to speculate on where the very concept of the fashion show is going next, on why the bi-annual four-city circuit as we know it should really be rethought, and how to properly integrate sustainability if he can help it. Which, of course, he can.

    Joining the circular economy with Vestiaire Collective

    Joining the circular economy with Vestiaire Collective

    As Vestiaire Collective celebrates its 10th anniversary, bolstered by news that the resell industry is now growing 1.5 times faster than the fast-fashion industry, Monica and Camille sit down with the founders of the luxury second-hand website to unpack the workings of the booming circular economy. Back when Vestiaire entered the market, second hand shopping was very much a hit-and-miss affair: only the more persistent vintage shoppers were likely to strike gold. But Vestiaire Collective was to change that by building an inspirational community-led platform were fashion lovers and savvy shoppers can find anything from Isabel Marant’s popular Dicker boots (Camille’s first purchase on the site) to Hermes and Chanel's most covetable handbags. 


    From their early days as entrepreneurs to working their way to the top of the eco-comm chain, Fanny Moisant and Sophie Hersan reveal some of the biggest challenges faced (like having to change your brand’s name) and explain why we should all be jumping on the circular economy bandwagon. They also talk FNF through vintage trends and how the resell industry is even influencing the first sale industry the days.

    Reconstructing sexy with Mugler's creative director, Casey Cadwallader

    Reconstructing sexy with Mugler's creative director, Casey Cadwallader

    In this episode of Fashion: No Filter your hosts get a studio visit from Mugler’s brilliant new Creative Director Casey Cadwallader. 
    After a topical chat on whether politics merits a place in the fashion world (or perhaps, whether fashion has the right to take a political stance), Casey tells Monica and Camille about his recent actions — including diverse casting, dressing Cardi B, and creating that exceptionally constructed “naked-suit” for Bella Hadid — which of course speak louder than words.
    Casey also takes the girls on a trip down memory lane, explaining his journey from 12-year-old goldsmith in New Hampshire, to architect, to Creative Director of a major Parisian fashion house, before addressing the joys of body-conscious dressing, and why choosing to look sexy can indeed go hand-in-hand with modern feminism. Tune in for an inspiring young designer’s journey, a hilarious first-hand account of Beyonce’s sartorial needs, and, of course, if you want to know, the secrets to constructing derriere-hoisting hosiery.

Customer Reviews

Cella Astini ,

Let the guests speak?

The guests are amazing! It’s literally everyone I’d love to hear and get to know. But every single episode they get interrupted and over shun by the hosts. The hosts go on these long long rants sometimes off topic. I will keep listening because the guests are truly incredible even if I can only hear their voices for a little bit.

@LUARBYLUAR ,

I can't get enough

Afternoons at work couldn't get any better. This podcast has become my guilty pleasure in the office, on my way to work, when someone cancels, perfect on quarantine. Honestly, I just need an excuse to listen to these girls. I wonder if they will be able to interview Miuccia, or is it to Miucc to ask for.
Hope to meet you someday*... (*when coronavirus gets canceled )

la petite american ,

If you love fashion, you’ll LOVE this podcast!

I adore these girls and each podcast is better than the last. If you love fashion this podcast is a great for a behind the scenes prospective on the industry. My only criticism is the inconsistency of new episodes.
