10’s Big Time Sensuality

January 30th, 2015 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

10 Magazine.
Nick Knight.
Victoria’s Secret.

The girls of VS unite for an edition of 10 that targets sensuality and glamour. In a special collaboration with ShowStudio.com and Nick Knight, editor in chief Sophia Neophitou reimagines the beauties of VS as futuristic pinups. Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, Behati Prinsloo, Lais Oliveira, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Devon Windsor, Sui He, Cindy Bruna, Barbara Fialho and Ming Xi feature in psychedelic portraits by Knight that radiate sexiness and beauty from his uniquely artistic perspective. The 12 covers are in part a commemoration of VS’s recent jaunt to London for its annual fashion show, but more than that they serve as a truly modern interpretation of sexiness a fact Neophitou cherishes, “Without a moment of hesitation I knew that the perfect person for this creative adventure would be Nick Knight. I can honestly say he surpassed every expectation I had and created a series of memorable, unique images.”

The Family

January 29th, 2015 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

Mikael Jansson takes top models to the commune in the pages of Interview Magazine with an editorial that makes living off the land in seem glamorous. With matching blonde bobs and minimal makeup, the appealing cast of Caroline TrentiniConstance JablonskiJulia NobisDaria Strokous and Lina Berg looks like sisters, or at least sister-wives. It might be hard to imagine any of these girls plowing the fields, or harvesting their own veggies while wearing pieces from Marc Jacobs and Acne, but Jansson and  Karl Templer make the scenario work. The wardrobe of army green and khaki creates a pared down (but still luxurious) uniform.

Coach’s Chameleons

January 28th, 2015 Posted by Janelle comments (3)

Few fashion brands have the name recognition of Coach, the global powerhouse has long represented attainable chic and American style, for better or worse. In recent years Coach has attempted to reinvent itself upping the luxury factor and revamping its ready-to-wear under the direction of the talented, Stuart Vevers. For the 2nd collection under Vevers’ leadership Steven Meisel captures the fresh faced cast in pastel & black and white for a series of images that merge ideas about youthful insouciance and Americana. Looking like the ultimate gang of cool kids, Molly Bair, Binx Walton, Julia Bergshoeff, Lexi Boling, Valery Kaufman, Dylan Xue, Grace Hartzel and Helge Vonderau look right at home chilling out in Ditmas Park.

Meisel’s Masterclass

January 28th, 2015 Posted by Janelle comment (1)

Meisel’s self portrait from Loewe‘s latest campaign

As a creator who has always let his work speak for itself, Steven Meisel rarely gives interviews or does press. A quiet, yet powerful presence within the industry he has come to represent the gold standard of photography; whenever he shoots a campaign or cover it’s big news, his work is often described as making the supermodels and in spite of his shy, introspective demeanor he continues to be one of fashion’s most fascinating characters. Perhaps that is why Tim Blanks‘s appealingly in-depth interview with Meisel for WSJ feels so essential. Tackling topics ranging from Meisel’s career retrospective, Role Model at Phillips de Pury, to his thoughts on controversial shoots for Vogue Italia, Blanks cuts a wide swath through years of industry history. As always Blanks’ insightful questions and wry writing style offer a new perspective on the familiar, showing us the personal side of a photographer who communicates his deepest feelings through his images rather than his social media account.

Head on over to WSJ.com to take a look at this week’s must read piece and enjoy a few choice Meisel quotes below.

On old pictures :  “Emotionally, it’s very difficult for me to look at old work. That’s why it was so hard to do the Phillips thing. I either look at what I could have done better, or I start crying. I’m ridiculously sensitive, that’s just who I am, so it’s really tough for me to look at old pictures.”

On changes within the modeling & fashion industries: “I think the business has changed so much. It’s more like how many likes you get on Instagram, which I do not do. I’m not into it. I don’t know what makes a star anymore. I’m just doing what I do. So is there an expectation? Not from me. And I hope not so much from the model, because I don’t want to disappoint anybody. My goal is just to do what I need to do on that day.”

On aging: I don’t care about age. Society is extremely ageist, obviously, and it’s just nonsense. To think of a woman’s life as only interesting and important until 25 is stupid and also so hurtful to women. The business creates it and then lets you hate yourself for it. Age is beautiful; life is that. You just begin to be a woman past the age of 30. You’re just learning life and having experiences.

Manhattan Transfers

January 27th, 2015 Posted by Janelle » Post a comment

The nonchalance and grit of late 70s Manhattan takes center stage in new editorials from Parisienne staples Vogue Paris and Numéro. In Lachlan Bailey (Management + Artists)’s striking VP story, Vanessa Moody is a chic beauty with a shag haircut and a wardrobe of 70s staples, from ribbed turtlenecks to navel grazing necklaces. Géraldine Saglio (Management + Artists) pulls out all the stops creating an authentically retro wardrobe for Moody. Little details like rotary phones in Vanessa’s apartment, classic cars and the backdrop of Harlem brownstones make the viewing experience especially pleasurable.

In Numero Greg Kadel captures vintage Manhattan in beautiful black & white with Ronja Furrer looking like she stepped out of a classic film. Havana Laffitte provides the era appropriate wardrobe, but mixes in a few modern elements like a metallic jacket for added interest.
