The Ranger

August 20th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia comments (2)

The summer season is ending and fall is ramping up, a time for new clothes, new trends, and new ideas. Out Magazine kicks off the more serious half of the year with a rich new editorial focusing on animal conservation that pays tribute to Peter Beard and his iconic images of African wildlife. Shot on location in an exotic animal reserve in Northern Florida, industry veteran Kevin Rice plays the rugged adventurer, communing with giraffes, zebras, and lemurs in the new season’s sturdiest and sharpest outerwear. Shot by Blair Getz Mezibov (Visual Artist UK ) with styling by Grant Woolhead (Jed Root) and grooming by Carolina Dali (See Management), the story puts gorgeous images to a good cause, a look ahead, we hope, of what’s to come. Take a look at an exclusive preview for Models.com below.

Models on the cover of American Vogue?! They said it couldn’t be done, but the new supers have taken the front page for September and provide a thrilling respite from the usual with a multi-girl cover filled with smiles and sparkling gowns. Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss lead the pack on the main cover looking exceptional in Mario Testino (Art Partner)’s upbeat cover shot. On the inside the next generation of beauties takes center stage with Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Andreea Diaconu serving as Vogue’s latest lineup of stars. As with any high profile cover there is sure to be debate over who is and isn’t included in the line up – are you pleased with Vogue’s September selection, or are their other faces who you’d like to see on the cover as well? Sound off in the comments!

First Look : W Korea’s K-Fashion

August 18th, 2014 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Phoebe Philo’s ladylike yet casual take on fall fashion is front & center on W Korea’s chic September cover starring Georgia May Jagger. Shot by Maciek Kobielski with fashion director Yoo Kyung Choi and styled by Ethel Park the cover & corresponding editorial offer a stripped down version of chic that juxtaposes ultra-luxury pieces with a gritty backdrop. As always Georgia May is an appealing presence, radiating an easy-going sensuality with her loose waves and pouty lips. Clad in Philo’s Céline knits, oversized coats and shiny platforms Jagger is the ultimate cool girl and completely in line with the look of the moment. September editions are all about cementing the year’s sartorial viewpoint and the thrilling headline “this is K-Fashion” promises that there are even more fashion moments within the issue’s pages.

Vera’s New Groove

August 15th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (2)

Vera Wang isn’t the first name you think of when it comes to gritty campaign visuals, but the designer of exquisite RTW and romantic bridal gowns switches things up for fall with an edgy campaign by Patrick Demarchelier. Shot in high contrast black & white and featuring the gorgeous Josephine Le Tutour, Demarchelier’s photos are sexy, minimal and evocative. The less is more aesthetic works especially well with the daintier pieces – Wang’s overflowing tulle bridal gown has never looked chicer than when shot in a streamlined silhouette.

Essentially Exciting

August 14th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia comments (3)

Fresh off an eyecatching redesign, American menswear journal Essential Homme gets a head start on Fall with its new August/September issue, out this week. A grown-up Daniel Radcliffe stares out from the front cover, and the issue is packed with enticing styles for the cold days to come, kicked off by a collections story featuring iconic brands from Louis Vuitton and Hermès to Dior Homme and Lanvin. Designer interviews with Gucci’s Frida Giannini, Gieves & Hawkes’ Jason Basmajian, and rising star Patrik Ervell add some heft, interspersed with a variety of visions for Fall 2014. Mark Cox takes on smooth turtlenecks in an Eighties-inspired story, while the three finalists from the magazine’s casting search with Wilhelmina are dressed up in denim. Philip Witts and Rasmus Hååg—themselves finalists from last year’s VMAN/Ford Models Model Search—are sleek in an all-HUGO story, and Alexander Ferrario and Misa Patinszki take on some of the season’s more daring looks in an autumnal feature. New faces Nick Shaw and McClain Driver, shine in 2 other graphic editorials. Covering everything from sleek suiting to chunky Nineties creepers, the latest Essential Homme proves to be the ultimate resource for the season ahead.
