Mass Appeal

December 18th, 2014 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

As we prepare to turn the page on 2014, the intriguing French menswear magazine MASSES Magazine is all set to take us into 2015 with a Winter/Spring issue out this week. CG Watkins’ striking cover introduces a full story shot in Cape Town with fashion by Louis Vuitton’s Kim Jones out of his own archive with groundbreaking pieces from the under-appreciated cult designer and artist Christopher Nemeth. The other features within offer a refreshing difference from the typical fashion glossy, from the androgynous appeal of Nicolas Coulomb and Florence Tetier’s story with styling by Georgia Pendlebury to the rich spirituality of Watkins’ feature with fashion by Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin. An exclusive portfolio of the late Malian photographer Adama Kouyaté’s classic portraits round out the artistic angle, while Brett Lloyd offers a take on the year to come with quirky looks by Lotta Volkova Adam (New York: ArtList NY, Paris: ArtList Paris). Take a look at our exclusive preview below.

Boss Lady

December 17th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

When Abbey Lee sauntered down the BOSS runway this season it marked a triumphant return. The Aussie beauty has been busily building her acting resume with parts opposite Tom Hardy and Gerard Butler, but rest assured that she hasn’t forgotten how to work it. Jason Wu is known for creating supermodel moments so naturally he tapped Abbey for BOSS’ latest campaign. Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin with styling by Joe McKenna (Art Partner) the minimalistic campaign is all about attitude and exquisitely tailored clothing. “No extraneous graphics, no set. It’s about the very essence of the woman and the man,” states Artistic Director Jason Wu of the beautiful new images. Stephen Galloways choreography adds grace to Abbey Lee’s poses, while classical violinist & model Charlie Siem (London: Storm Model Management, Paris: Success Models) serves as the campaign’s elegant male lead.

The Provocateur

December 16th, 2014 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Agent Provocateur ads have always had a way of pushing buttons, but this season’s lineup takes things one step further with a high fashion romp through the oeuvre of cinematic legends. Ellen von Unwerth takes a page from David Lynch and Brian DePalma’s playbook for her steamy shots of Naomi Campbell, which subtly nod to Lost Highway and Body Double respectively.  Creative director Sarah Shotton‘s cinéaste sensibilities are reflected in the direction of the ads and the eye-catching selection of lingerie. Naomi plays the role of femme fatale with an ease that suggests she’s perfectly capable not just seduction, but a little mayhem too.

Surrealist State

December 16th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (7)

As the most talked about model of the moment, Kendall Jenner has been everywhere this year – including on the cover of Dazed & Confused, where she displayed an appealingly avant garde side in Ben Toms‘ eclectic cover shots styled by Robbie Spencer. The concept goes one step further with the release of Toms’ trippy accompanying film which sees the raven haired beauty posing in a variety of haute fashion looks accented by glossy makeup by Yadim (Art Partner) and Shon‘s larger than life hair styles. In keeping with Dazed’s tradition of outside the box content the film has a weird and wonderful style reminiscent of vintage video.

The Brit Pack

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

Nothing beats a spectacular pairing of two generations of supermodel and Burberry Prorsum delivers all that and then-some with a gorgeous S/S campaign by Mario Testino featuring Naomi Campbell and Jourdan Dunn. In keeping with the precedent set by the recent My Burberry ads starring Kate Moss & Cara, these new ads showcase the timelessness of Burberry’s signature pieces by featuring two of Britain’s best known faces in trenches and tartan shot by Mario Testino. (Art Partner) Christopher Bailey‘s colorful and dynamic spring collection comes to life in the accompanying video where Jourdan & Naomi smile and giggle while joined by male model musicians George Barnett and George Le Page, who round out the all British cast.

A Sensual Touch

December 15th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

When we think about the way in which lingerie is marketed, it’s easy to envision the typical tropes of sexed up imagery and in your face displays of skin, but La Perla‘s latest campaign proves you can market the very best in nightwear while maintaining subtlety. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) create a sensual spring /summer campaign for the venerable lingerie house capturing their new made to measure collection on Sigrid Agren, Ming Xi and Izabel Goulart. Richard Biedul joins the fun as the campaign’s menswear face, looking dapper in layers of textured black. Fabien Baron creative direction serves to anchor the campaign, allowing Mert & Marcus’ elegant images to take center stage.

Balmaniacs

December 12th, 2014 Posted by Janelle comments (2)

Olivier Rousteing‘s vision for Balmain has always been about powerful, provocative women so it seems natural to see his Spring/Summer campaign filled with supermodels. Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and newcomer Crista Cober join forces to play video games and eat cheeseburgers in Mario Sorrenti‘s (Art Partner) action packed ads for Balmain. Sorrenti never fails to bring energy to his images and this time around he makes the usually elegant cast engage in a little combat. If kicking and screaming supers isn’t your idea of a good time fear not, the subtler images have the beauties duking it out via Nintendo rather than clawing each others eyes out. The art direction by Pascal Dangin adds another layer of enjoyment, with patterns and colors perfectly coordinating even as the punches are thrown.
