Meet Alain-Fabien Delon, The Face Of Theory’s Fall 2016 Campaign

Fashion

Theory_1_hero

When it comes to fashion pedigree, it doesn’t get much better than Alain-Fabien Delon. Not only is he the son of renowned French actor Alain Delon, but his mother is Dutch model Rosalie Van Breemen. Nor surprisingly, Delon is making huge strides in following in both of their footsteps. At the tender age of 22, Delon has already found incredible success in both of his parents’ fields, conquering acting appearing in films like You and the Night, and taking on the modeling world gracing the pages of L’Uomo Vogue, strutting the runway for Gucci, and serving as the face of Dior—an accomplishment he shares with his father.

For his latest project, Delon had the opportunity to take another step forward in his modeling career by carrying a global campaign for Theory. Working with legendary photographer David Sims, Delon brings his signature moodiness and brooding aura to the images. We recently chatted with the up-and-coming star about the project and where his fledgling career may lead.

The Window: Tell us about shooting the Theorycampaign.
Alain-Fabien Delon: Shooting with Theory was really interesting, and I quite enjoyed it.  Everything went very smoothly.

You’d worked with photographer David Sims before, right?
Yes, I worked with David for the first-ever photo shoot of my career.  He knows exactly what he wants and his team is really on the same wavelength, which make the results magnificent.

People often compare you to your father, but it seems you’re also following in your mother’s footsteps. How does she feel about you modeling?
My mother supports me in every way possible. She almost acts like my manager!  She gives me modeling advice, what to do, and so on.  I guess she must be proud of what I do.

What about the clothes for the shoot? Did you have any favorite pieces?
My favorite Theory piece must be the Neoteric pants.  They have an elevated look, but are still really soft and comfortable.  They look and feel amazing.  It’s hard to pick, though. I now have a great Theory wardrobe, and I have to admit, I wear everything everywhere. I’m probably looking forward most to wearing the Schaffer topcoat this fall.

How would you describe your personal style when you’re not in front of the camera?
I’m very chill and relaxed in how I dress.  I wear pretty classic jeans or trousers, a great t-shirt or button down, and sneakers.

What are your favorite activities to do when you’re not working?
When I’m not working, I love to swim, slackline, and longboard.  I also have two dogs.

You have some amazing campaigns behind you, but what’s up next for you?
Well I don’t know what’s up next for me!  Hopefully, a lot more campaigns.  Of course, you will also soon see me on the film screen. I’ve been taking it slow, reading a lot, and experiencing new things before I fully throw myself into an acting career.  I’m still trying to find the right path—I mean, I’m still young.

How To Make The Most Of Your Lunch Break

Fashion

Imagine it’s lunchtime, and you’ve decided not to eat at your desk today or, in other words, participate in the most depressing workplace practice of all time. We don’t know anyone who actually gets an official hour for lunch, and you may feel weird about leaving your desk for that long, but if you can’t at least abandon your work station for thirty minutes, it may be time to re-evaluate your career situation. Those of you who aren’t putting in your notice right now, however, should take the following advice for making the most of your lunch break, a practice which, if done regularly, will improve your productivity, health and happiness.Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 2.47.21 PM

Take A Hike

We're not going to suggest you workout or take a nap—though afternoon is the ideal time for both activities—as the sweat factor is an issue with most forms of exercise and sleeping in your car or under your desk isn't really a good look. What you can do, however, is take a walk, the health benefits of which are innumerable. A quiet park or pathway is ideal in order to reset your focus, but any form of midday fitness is better than nothing. You can double your productivity, if you're so inclined, by listening to apodcast as you stroll. Or, spend the time on creating content for Instagram or Snapchat. (We have your attention now, don't we?).

Put 10 Minutes Towards A Big Goal

Remember when we learned that working just 10 minutes a day towards a big goal can increase happiness levels? Your lunch break may not feel like enough time to write a book or learn a new language but it is, so there are no excuses. (Sorry!) Think about how good you would feel if you put 10 minutes of your lunch break each day towards mindfully eating (read: zoning out), 10 minutes towards walking, and 10 minutes towards accomplishing a goal separate from your work life? 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for a year equals 130 hours of found time. 130 hours!

Handle Annoying Errands

Annoying errands (post office, bank, etc.) aren't the most enjoyable way to spend your lunch break, but just think how good you'll feel when the final bell tolls, and you're able to "clock out" without having to tack another to-do onto the end of your day. Also, all the most tedious errands can generally only be accomplished during work hours, so you will have to use your lunch break to this end at some point and it might as well be today.

Meet At Least One Friend Per Week

By "friend," we do not mean "vague work associate." One of the least desirable side effects of a typical office job is that you end up spending far more time at work than you do with loved ones. Remedy this to some small extent by scheduling in at least one lunch per week that is purely personal. More than this and you may end up being stressed out by your commitments, but adding a little time for your relationships will make your work week seem, overall, less tedious. Plus, social ties help you live longer.

Keira Knightley Reveals A Shocking Hair Secret

Fashion

Keira Knightley became everyone’s brunette-haired icon when she starred in the break-out role of Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. Her acting career quickly took off, and thanks to a wide range of parts, she was spotted sporting everything from blonde waves to blunt bangs to a pixie cut. Despite working with some of the most talented hairstylists in the business, the multitude of changes took a toll on Keira’s hair, even though her locks always looked nothing short of perfect. In an interview with InStyle UK, she finally spilled her secret.

“I have dyed my hair virtually every color imaginable for different films. It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head! So for the past five years I’ve used wigs, which is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to my hair,” she told the magazine. Yes, the woman with envy-inducing brown waves has actually suffered from hair loss, and used wigs to protect her locks and conceal her struggle. A lot of us will eventually suffer from thinning hair or hair loss in general, so its comforting to find out that we aren’t alone, and more importantly, that wigs are a great interim solution.

Balmain Fall-Winter 2016/2017 Womenswear collection

Fashion

A few days ago French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing presented his latest women's fashion collection during the Paris Fashion Week. Light grays and pastels, soft fabrics and highlighting of natural beauty - these are the key elements of the designs.

'It's easy to mark the exact time and place this collection was born: October 25th, in a Queens photo studio. That morning, as my team and I watched Steven Klein shoot Cindy, Claudia and Naomi for Balmain's latest campaign, we were in awe of what was happening in front of the camera. The poise. The professionalism. And the amazing power of confident women who are aware of the singular beauty of their own bodies - and the effect that they can have upon others', the designer explained.

'This collection aims to channel some of the impressive, positive power that we witnessed four months ago, in part bycelebrating the sensuality of a woman's natural shape - focusing on and emphasizing those beautiful curves with the introduction of a new Balmain silhouette, which relies on our atelier's innovations in and mastery of the traditional arts of corsetry', he added.

'You'll note some other distinctive elements of this collection, as well: Fall 2016 also introduces new colors to the Balmain palette, with an array of light grays and pastels. Soft fabrics, particularly rich angora and an array of suedes, help provide a distinct contrast to the collection's corset-inspired shapes, transparent lace tailoring and lingerie-focused designs. But above all, the diverse and beautiful group of women owning today's runway helps underline what my team and I believe to be the most modern of outlooks for fashion today: a celebration of the natural beauty, shape and strength of every woman', said also Rousteing.
