Nadja for Vogue Germany

October 17th, 2014 Posted by models.com comments (2)

Vogue Germany welcomes home Nadja Auermann for their November 2014 issue. In this incredible editorial, Nadja continues to wow. Luigi & Iango capture the icon in stunning industrial portraits. The magazine cover is an obvious eye-grabber, with Nadja looking spectacular in a huge Prada coat, giving what can only be deemed as her best “do not mess with me” face. The editorial pictures are magnificent and capture not only the beauty of the clothing, but the mature and intense allure of Nadja, herself. With her beautiful blonde hair slicked back, the tough and rugged setting becomes the perfect backdrop for Nadja’s fierce and angular beauty. The lines and shapes of the background complement and frame Nadja, making for vivid photographs of an engaging and glamorous model. As the title says, Nadja is “fortysomething and more stunning than ever.”

Upwards Over The Mountain

October 16th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia comments (2)

This calls for a celebration! This season, the energetic Spanish menswear magazine Fucking Young celebrates its fifth anniversary with a powerful Fall/Winter 2014 issue on the theme of mountains, on newsstands today. The legendary Jon Kortajarena, shot by Hunter & Gatti (OPUS), stares out from a stony ground from the cover, and a similarly audacious spirit is visible throughout, in fourteen editorials with varied takes on the idea of rocky ascent. Linus Wordemann earns his mountaineering badge as a Boy Scout in Roman Goebel’s feature, while Max Rendell offers a technical, sporty take in Michiel Meewis’ story. Coco Capitan brings a DIY, Wes Anderson aesthetic to a shoot with Ben Waters, and Ilaria D’Atri offers lush atmospherics in “Vesuvius,” with Roberto Sipos. It’s a bold statement from a publication that is always moving onwards and upwards. “Although we’ve had great satisfactions along the way, we still have the feeling that we are climbing the slopes, slowly ascending,” the editors say. “The harder that it gets, the more satisfaction we get from getting a little bit higher. What is so special about a mountain and about conquering it?” Take a look at our exclusive preview of the issue below. To buy, click here.

A Fine Balance

October 15th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

The sixth issue of Italian menswear The Greatest lands this week with a tone of quiet introspection, taking a meditative approach to its Fall 2014 theme of balance. Nemanja Maksic and Tomek Szalanski find equilibrium against each other in Paolo Zerbini (Paris: Atomo Management)’s quiet feature, while Sybille Walter shoots Thibaud Charon in the perfect mix of fabrics, patterns, and textures against a hulking ruin that looms precariously above. Kris Van Assche and Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo share their candid thoughts in engaging interviews, while art photographer Luca de Santis offers a series of his signature collages, combining photographs of chairs intertwined in perfect harmony covered with rainbow sprinkles and candies. A gorgeous accompanying film, starring a jagged coastline and Gordon Bothe singing a haunting ode, ends with a mantra worth remembering in our topsy-turvy, twisted age: “Everything in life is about balance.”

American Blonde

October 14th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

W Magazine American Blonde from models.com on Vimeo.

The myth of the American Blonde is brought to life by Hugh Lippe and William Town for W Magazine with an atmospheric new film. Shot against an industrial backdrop the film tells the story of a mysterious blonde beauty who sweeps into town and seduces every person she crosses – even when they’re only watching her on CCTV. Naturally, the story doesn’t play out in a straightforward fashion – subtle nods to surveillance culture and the gritty underground films of the 70s create a vibe that gives the film its hint of danger. As always Anna delivers, providing just the right mix of sensuality and confidence to keep viewers captivated until the final frame.

Director Hugh Lippe on American Blonde : We (William Town and I) sat down with the task of creating something unique for W’s media section. Throughout writing the treatment, a conversation began regarding the process of ‘image making’ and the dynamic of fashion videos. I believe at one point, after much discussion, we said, “%*$#-it, lets make a ‘rough’ film look cinematic…”. Anna, a German native, is stunningly gorgeous. She the type of model that can work couture along side the most interesting, sharp and stunning androgynous models, yet a guy from any geographic point will take their eyes off the road to ‘check her out’. She embodies a sentiment to me reminiscent of the supermodels in the 80’s, they were ‘hot’, a poster on the wall. Once we put this German beauty through our the ‘process’ she in turn became the ‘American Blonde’.

Just Watch!

October 10th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (4)

Liu Wen.
David Sims.
Vogue China.

The Apple Watch on the cover is getting a great deal of media attention, but don’t forget who’s selling that Céline + Apple combination and making the luxury tech piece look downright essential. November is all about Liu Wen‘s first solo Vogue China cover – the Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin anniversary issue covers were gorgeous but several other girls were featured. Liu owns the stately David Sims image with a quiet power and in the accompanying cover story she’s just as good.

GARAGE GETS IT!

Despite being a New Yorker myself, Paris is probably the most exciting of the cities to experience during the fashion season. Everyone is a little more dressed up, and the elaborate landscape makes for a fantastic setting upon which all the most exciting fashion moments take place. At one point or another, you’re bound to bump into all of the masterminds behind this industry in the decorative streets of this city. It seems only fitting then that we ran into the ladies who launch some of the most adventurous new ideas, fluttering about the Louvre on their way to the Chloe show last week. While the rest of the world continues to seek out the best way to marry print and digital, Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall showed off their exciting new issue of Garage Magazine – one that appears to be the love child of the pre-existing mediums. Having experimented with interactive publishing in a previous issue via the application Blippar, this season team Garage has gone rogue – and created an application of their very own.

To experience it download the garage app and point it at the magazine, it’s a new way to look at print!

We wanted to make it digitally interactive because we spend so much time on our phones, all of us, rarely ever sitting down in front of an actual computer. I am sure Jony (Ive) has done a bigger iPhone for this very same reason, because even iPads are clunky in essence when you consider how much we live on our phones. Often you have a shoot and you cut it, or you have an interview and you cut it, even that as a starting pointŠ you can put extra stuff behind. So we did this money film, because there is so much more that you can actually put in the magazine but it’s somehow a little bit elite to have to then go onlineŠ if you want to be really immediate, you can just see it. We had partnered with Blippar before, but I think when Michael and Dasha started talking to Jeff Koons and this idea of his digital sculpture came up we started talking about how anyone is going to see it. We all suddenly thought, how amazing would it be to put it on the cover, but how could we if it’s digital, how’s that going to work? Then we figured we would blippar it, but then we thought well actually at this point, we should just build our own.

With this, moving forward, you could potentially make any page, any graphic, something that you can scan. It can be a gif it can be a still it can be a film, it can be an interview, it can talk, it can be 3D. It just activates content.

You can scan a model and see her stats, see her card, see her models.com profile. Normally when you come up with a concept for a magazine, it has to look good in print. With this, it doesn’t isolate the idea, it can be digital, still or interactiveŠ it doesn’t matter because it will all work.

A lot of augmented reality software already exists, we are all more or less on that path. But what’s really exciting about the Garage APP is this exclusive power of a unique collaboration with one of the biggest icons in contemporary art. To get your virtual Koons on top of a printed mag is simply a huge step into new consumerism. GARAGE is the only mag I can imagine who is able to generate this excitement on such high level. It’s more than a gadget, just imagine the emotional level a user gets by using his smart device to discover and experience this unexpected content! This is for sure the next evolutionary step in the fusion of print and digital. Ads become alive, sculptures pop up, bags and shoes walk through the pages….it’s just the beginning and it starts with GARAGE.
- Mike Meiré, Art Director at Garage Magazine and the designer of this APP
