When it came to choosing music for the video for Anna Scholz’s Autumn-Winter 2010 White Label collection, there was no contest. Singer-songwriter San Glaser has just the right mix of sultry soulfulness to convey the luxurious glamour and sex appeal that Anna’s White Label represents. Watch the video on the homepage of the annascholz web site and you’ll be instantly transported to a world of vintage-inspired elegance and chic femininity.
Like Anna Scholz, San Glaser hails from Hamburg, Germany. She completed her studies in jazz voice, harmonics and vocal pedagogy. She then went on to sing for Jazzkantine and to work with the band of soul entrepreneur Stefan Gwildis. Glaser made her solo debut with the 2005 album, Never in Vain. Her second album, New Road, has been described as “full of honesty, balmy tonality and profound substance, with a decent pinch of pop added to her very own interpretation of jazz.”
New Road treads many musical paths as well as documenting an internal journey for San Glaser, who sums up her natural style by saying, “I always prefer looking at the pure sky rather than fireworks”.
Anna’s fabulous double silk pleat dress in the cool purple ink print was featured in this month’s issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. We’re thrilled with how it’s styled for the spread called “Delicious Curves” which celebrates figure-hugging dresses on a curvier model.
We keep hoping that mainstream magazines will make use of curvy models more regularly. How beautiful does she look?
We had a lot of fun putting together the informal “Meet the Team” video, where customers are introduced to the members of the Anna Scholz team and get a behind-the-scenes look at the design studio and photo shoots. The music for the video is by the Dutch band Room 11, which has been described as “a catchy mixture of jazz, pop, funk, blues and a touch of folk”.
In 2001, singer Janne Schra posted a notice at Utrechts Music College’s message board seeking someone to write songs with. Arriën Molema responded, and Room 11 was born. More members joined over the next few years and the debut album Six White Russians and a Pink Pussycat was released in 2006. Mmm…Gumbo? followed in 2008. Though they acquired numerous fans, toured extensively and performed twice at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Room 11 ultimately disbanded so the members could pursue their individual interests.
The ethereal, pixie-like Janne Schra now performs with a new band under the name Schradinova. Arriën Molema works as a music composer and producer and imports and sells Japanese green tea.

Tom Ford did an interesting “plastic surgery” editorial for the December/ January issue of French Vogue, which features the beautiful Crystal Renn as the recipient of a faux facelift!
Crystal told Fashonista, “What I enjoy most about my job is the opportunity to express myself, often doing this by becoming a sort of character on the shoots that I do, and every time I work with Carine [Roitfeld, French Vogue editor-in-chief] I feel the character approach is emphasized. When they were taking the cast of my face, fitting me for prosthetic cheeks and lips, I remember thinking this is why I do my job, for moments like this. After the shoot I took that very mask and asked Tom to sign it, it sits in my living room as we speak.”
It is definitely a transformation. She looks more Janice Dickinson than Janice Dickinson! What do you think of the spread?
