Fearless and Fashionable

March 6th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

Supermodel Jacquetta Wheeler plays a bold and stylish journalist for the latest Vogue Portugal. The cinematic cover story shot by Frederico Martins imagines the English model equipped with a camera documenting the front lines. For the period-portrayal Ana Campos outfits the heroine in the latest Givenchy, Salvatore Feragamo, Marc Jacobs, Prada and Gucci–all aptly in shades of army green. Accompanied by stone-faced infantrymen, Jacquetta’s willowy hair and sharp timeless features romance the images (Lagerfeld once described her face as a Roman vase). On the pages her poses capture the air of a woman who is determined, fearless and fashionable– even in the dismalness of wartime. Now 33, Jacquetta is no novice when it comes to Vogue or the modeling industry. Discovered in 1998 at the age of seventeen by Mario Testino, she quickly found herself in French Vogue and in 1999 was on the cover of The Face naming her “Model of the Millennium.” From there she became the repeated face of Gucci, then Givenchy, landed the cover of Vogue Italia and a cover for British Vogue. With the word “Feminismo” printed across the cover in bold font the veteran shows she can easily exemplify the strong and beautiful woman now more than ever.

First Look: ODDA #8, The Decades Issue

March 6th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

Talk about ambition. To celebrate their third anniversary, ODDA Magazine’s latest issue celebrates well over a hundred years of fashion, stretching from Charles Frederick Worth’s turn­ of the­ century couture to the menswear we’ll be wearing next fall. “The decision about making a Decades issue talking about the history of fashion was due to my fascination for this industry and how we evolved from the past to the present, always looking at how the past made us who we are now,” explains editor ­in­ chief David Martin.

He and his team have pulled together a collection of snapshots of years past, starting with eight different covers, each representing a different decade. Paris Hilton pops in Moschino for the Nineties, while Baptiste Giabiconi channels Brando for the Fifties. The pages within celebrate the legacies of Ferragamo, Balenciaga, and Givenchy—the originals—as well as current designers who return time and again to touchstone eras, from the elegance of Ralph Lauren’s Thirties to Vivenne Westwood’s punk Seventies.

The issue is awash with contradictions and different perspectives. Alex Loomans is straight out of Gatsby and Thorben Gartner marks the current day in Italo Zucchelli’s sporty designs. Lieke Van Houten and Nicolas Ripoll embody the romanticism of Forties Spain in Dolce & Gabbana and Daan van der Deen wears Calvin Klein to relive the athletic Nineties. For an industry that is constantly obsessed with what’s new and what’s next, the issue offers a primer on where we came from, answering, gloriously and powerfully, the eternal question of how we got here with a preview of where we’re headed. Take a look at an exclusive preview below.

Super Eight

March 5th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

For L’Officiel Singapore‘s 8th anniversary issue Steven Klein (Art Partner) shoots eight covers featuring eight icons and modern muses. Harnessing the full potential of the coveted cast of beauties Klein produces a lustrous assemblage of fashion-noir covers. Naomi Campbell, Angela Lindvall, Guinevere Van Seenus, Liu Wen, Xiao Wen Ju, Jamie Bochert, Crystal Renn and Maria Borges each command their moments with steely perfection. Klein says of the reasoning behind the casted eight, “They are powerful, unique and know how to hold the camera.” Collaborating with fashion directors Jack Wang and Jumius Wong and stylist Patti Wilson (Streeters New York), the foursome put together a darkly, romantic spread equipped with black leather and stunning, mischievous headpieces. For each shoot, in classic Klein mode, he instigates a hushed eroticism where the models’ poses are both defiant and submissive.

Spring into Spring

March 5th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

The march of the March issues is just around the corner, but American upstart menswear magazine Essential Homme gets a head start with their February/March issue, out now with a striking Hugh Dancy on the cover shot by Kevin Sinclair (See Management) and styled by editor Terry Lu. The issue marks the changing of the seasons as we spring into spring, with a celebration of orange—which makes a case for color of the moment on Ian Sharp—and a wealth of new takes on denim as worn by RJ King. Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo fame take the spotlight, as does chill wave singer Twin Shadow, who also DJed the magazine’s blowout bash during New York Fashion Week. Russell Giardina shows off the new direction Michael Maccari is taking at Perry Ellis, while Markus Ziegler captures the season’s nautical theme in a feature styled by Adrian Manuel. Amid all the upbeat cheer, Philipp Bierbaum and Laurie Harding offer a darker look in a collections feature photographed by Marco Falcetta and styled by Rebecca Baglini, focusing on the edgier edges of the months to come.

A Delphic Curation

March 3rd, 2015 Posted by Irene comment (1)

Jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez takes over the latest issue of A Magazine with her striking, surrealist style and the results are transformative as expected. Nadja Auermann covers the issue in never before photographed vintage Roberto Capucci pieces sourced directly from Roman collectors. The exquisite and colorful archive pieces are styled by Robbie Spencer with Raphael Salley (Streeters London) and Gemma Smith-Edhouse on the beauty team. Matthew Stone captures the polymorphic essence of Nadja as she fearlessly takes on these sculptural gowns with her fluid motions and timeless grace.
