Fashion Vibes of 2017 That We Loved

Photo by Jessica Bristow on Unsplash

The end of the year is always a good time for reflection. We look back on the things we’ve accomplished, things we’ve perhaps failed at and envision plans we are committed to accomplishing next year. Although the anticipation of January 1st fills us with an inexplicable amount of positive energy as we prepare to leave yet another year behind and hope that the grass will be greener on the other side, there is no denying that every year we leave behind had its upsides. One of them is definitely related to the realm of fashion, and 2017 has been, undeniably, a great year in terms of style, so taking one final glance at all the things we loved about the year is certainly worth our while. Who knows, maybe we’ll be taking some of those precious moments with us as we march towards the future.

The fangirling

As the mighty Anna Wintour has already said when reflecting on the collections presented on this year’s runways, many of them have been experimental, bold, rule-breaking, playful but never silly. One trend that has been here for perhaps decades, but this year was taken from indie to mainstream fashion is the fangirl trend. Almost all of us have owned and rocked a tee with a print of our favorite band at one point in life, but now this love of bands, as well as TV shows, has been celebrated and runway-approved. So, if you loved Stranger Things or have been obsessed with Blade Runner, you go shopping online and research the sleekest of fashion pieces, such as stripe knit top from Calvin Klein in Australia, and pair it with the perfect heels.

The playful couture

For all of us who secretly (or publicly) have a soft spot for Great Gatsby and the fashion of the roaring ‘20s the fringe trends definitely took us back to that era of repressed decadence, we weren’t alive to experience. From the dresses almost fully covered in soft fringes to playful outerwear that brought the air of that old chic to every outfit, this is most certainly a trend all the ladies with a flair for the dramatic will carry in their hearts long after the year is over.

Still mad about plaid

If there is one trend that will certainly make a smooth transition from 2017 to 2018, it’s the plaid trend. The retro ‘70s vibe and the unshakable casual sophistication of this pattern has proven to have a timeless quality to it. So, whether it will be high rise pants by Tome, an oversized suit by Stella McCartney, or one of the countless plaid coats that have taken over fast fashion retail stores, you have to own something in the pattern. It’s safe to say that this trend is bound to stick around long after the year is over.

All that glitter

When getting ready for all those Christmas and New Year’s parties, sequins and sparkles usually find themselves on the top of the list. This has been a truly glitzy year, from the already famous glitter boots to larger-than-life dancing queen neck-to-ankle sparkly dresses. Many of us will be dressed like a disco ball to a certain extent, but sadly, not every eve is New Year’s Eve so, regardless of how much we love our glitz and glamour, we have a sneaking suspicion that after the clock strikes midnight, January 1st will be the time when we put those dresses away and leave them be until the next festive season.

Anything goes

Photo by Sam Burriss on Unsplash
Americana will always have a special place in our hearts. Minimalists may not be crazy about this trend, but hey, there are plenty of boho and statement dressers that will miss the Americana vibe and the patchwork garments once they’re out of style. The reason we love this trend so much is simple – it gives a sense of warmth, it reminds us of simpler times, cozy quilts and fills us with a sense of playfulness. In addition to that, it provides more than a little wiggle room to mix and match different prints without apologizing for it or being cautious about it. As much as we hope the patchwork sticks will stick around, there is a good chance it will be swallowed by shades of millennial pink and the already forecasted pastels, so rock your Americana while you still can.

FIAF launches First-Ever French Animation Festival in United States with 12 US and New York Premieres!

Celebrating France’s rich tradition as a pioneer of animation, the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, is thrilled to launch Animation First, the first-ever French animation festival in the United States, which will take place Friday, February 2 through Sunday, February 4.

With 12 US and New York premieres, the festival presents ambitious, innovative, and award-winning animated feature and short films, virtual reality, video games, and more, coming out of France’s most exciting studios and art schools. Animation First features special screenings and events for all ages, putting audiences in the front seat of 3D animation, works in progress, interactive workshops on drawing and sound effects, gaming demonstrations, and panel discussions with leading artists and studio executives.

The festival will present a preview of Terry Gilliam and Tim Ollive’s latest project 1884: Yesterday’s Future; a rare Q&A and presentation of Oscar-nominated The Red Turtle with celebrated director Michael Dudok de Wit, the festival’s guest of honor; and the US Premiere of En sortant de l’école, a collection of animated short films inspired by the poems of surrealist author Robert Desnos. International superstar and César-nominated actor Jean Reno (Léon: The Professional), who lends his voice to The Day of the Crows (Le jour des corneilles), screening at the festival, will be in attendance for the film’s Q&A along with bestselling French novelist and festival patron Marc Levy (If Only It Were True and film adaptation Just Like Heaven).

The Opening Night celebration, for all ages, is a special 3D screening of the beloved film Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants, followed by a kick-off party at FIAF. After the kids are asleep, stay for a nightcap as the festival presents Erotic Animation, where animators let their imaginations run wild. Sensual, erotic, naughty, poetic, or risqué, these fanciful and unconventional shorts celebrate passion, desire, and fantasies.

Highlights of the film program include Michel Fuzellier and Babak Payami’s feature Iqbal, a Tale of a Fearless Child (Iqbal, l’enfant qui n’avait pas peur). Inspired by the life of Iqbal Masih, a Pakistani boy who became a spokesperson against child slavery, the film takes an imaginative, inspiring approach to a pressing contemporary issue; and Loulou and Other Wolves (Loulou et autres loups)a program of shorts based on the bestselling children’s book by writer and illustrator Grégoire Solotareff. Serge Elissalde, director of the short Loulou, will also be present for a Q&A after the film. Other programs include 3D Animated Short Films with 3D festival programmer and director François Serre; the classic 1973 Cannes Film Festival winning Fantastic Planet (La planète sauvage) by animation legend René Laloux; and Pioneers of French Animation, a ciné-concert with a live piano performance.

An exceptional partnership with the City of Angoulême, Grand Angoulême, Department of Charente, and Magelis will highlight the unique animation ecosystem thriving in the Aquitaine region of France. A significant number of the films in this year’s edition of the festival were produced in the region, which is home to several of France’s top-rated animation schools and studios. In collaboration with SolidAnim, a French leader in virtual production, Augmented Reality (AR) will be used in all promotional material created for the festival, which marks one of the first times AR has been conceived for a major cultural project.

Animation First is co-curated by Delphine Selles-Alvarez, FIAF’s Film Curator, and Catherine Lamairesse, Director of Special Projects at FIAF, who said, “French animation has enjoyed increasing success worldwide in recent years, from the Oscar-nominated Triplets of Belleville to recent hits The Red Turtle and My Life as a Zucchini. With Animation First we are excited to offer New York audiences of all ages the opportunity to explore the breadth and diversity of animation in France, and discover an abundance of creativity across genres and techniques, past and present.”

About French Animation

Animation has a rich history in France. Since its early beginnings in the late 19th century when Émile Reynaud projected his Pantomimes Lumineuses at the Musée Grevin in Paris, French filmmakers and artisans have experimented with puppets, cutouts, and stop motion, inventing important techniques along the way. Notable animated films have peppered the history of French cinema, from Émile Cohl’s Fantasmagorie (1908), depicting a stick figure moving through space, to Ladislas Starewich’s influential stop-motion Le Roman de Renard (1930), the first French animated feature film. Other acclaimed works have included the experimental Une nuit sur le mont chauve (1933), using a pinscreen machine invented by Alexandre Alexieff and Claire Parker; La Demoiselle and Le violoncelliste(1965), films that launched the career of Jean-François Laguionie (Louise en hiver, 2016); as well as Fantastic Planet (René Laloux, 1973), Le Roi et l’Oiseau (Paul Grimault, 1980), and Kirikou and the Sorceress (Michel Ocelot, 1998).

Today, France is Europe’s largest producer and the world’s third largest exporter of animated film. Renowned for stylistic innovation and an often artisanal approach, French animation continues to garner awards worldwide and spans a diversity of genres, from independent art-house successes The Triplets of Belleville, and more recently The Red Turtle, to films for mature audiences like Renaissance, as well as big-budget blockbusters Ballerina and the Franco-American Despicable Me franchise. Beyond films, France has carved out an important space in animated TV programs, web series, video games, and the rapidly developing fields of virtual reality and new technologies.

Reasons To Switch To Led Pendant Lights

When you compare Led Pendant Lights with fluorescent lights you will know why people all over the world are switching over to the usage of it over the other. There are reasons one too many that makes LED bulb better. One significant reason is that fluorescent bulbs contain mercury and use around 8 watts of energy per foot. Moreover, these bulbs are made from glass aiming it fragile and delicate to handle. On the other hand, the LED bulbs do not have mercury, they are more energy efficient, use as low as 2 to 4 watts of energy per foot and since these are rubberized, it makes them sustainable and durable along with rock, hail and vandal proof.

The Statistical Figures

If you consider the statistics of LED lights then also you will see that these are by far better than the fluorescent bulbs. These can be enumerated as follows:

  • Energy efficiency – The energy output of one LED light is equal to three fluorescent bulbs.
  • Long life – Only 70% of their original power is used for a life of 50,000 hours.
  • Heat – The Led Pendant Lights are cool to touch as it generates much less heat.
  • UV factor – These lights do not attract bugs and insects as these are no UV lights.
  • More Lumen – It will give you more than 20 million lumens over its entire lifespan.

The Inherent Benefits

There are lots of benefits when you use Led Pendant Lights listed as under:

  • Cool environment – As these lights generate less heat you will have a cool inside reducing the workload on your air conditioner.
  • Easy on your eyes – The Color Rendering Index or CRI of these lights are so designed that it does not have that glaring effect on your eyes.
  • No frequent replacements required – These lights save you money, as well as the pain of replacing bulbs frequently located at high spots as these, are 25 times long-lasting than incandescent lights and 2.5 times more durable than CFLs, according to US Department of Energy.
  • Versatile and dynamic – These lights are more versatile and dynamic due to their rugged construction and wide range of sizes and shapes.
  • Safe for the earth – According to the Environment Protection Agency or EPA, these lights are safe for the earth as these do not contain any toxic material or mercury.

Things To Look For

There are few factors to look for when you buy Led Pendant Lights and out of these, the quality of light and temperature is most significant.

CRI or Color Rendering Index is the measuring parameter of the quality of light. This shows how well it replicates color to the human eyes as compared with daylight. Natural daylight is supposed to have the highest CRI rating but for any artificial light sources, the standard requirement for residential use is around 80 CRI.

CCT or Correlated Color Temperature is another factor that determines the quality and functionality of the lights. It is measured in Kelvin and refers to the coolness or warmness the light produces. LED bulbs are usually listed at 3000K but do not heat up to 5000°F.
