Proenza Schouler mixed with Reeboks, Calvin Klein silk paired with pink Nikes? The eclectic mix of high, low, chic and sporty must mean that Olivier Rizzo is styling!

Showing of spring’s relaxed looks and a set of fashion’s most distinctive beauties, the pair crafts a subtle and subdued story with an easy going style.

Fashionista gives us the masthead from Anna Wintour’s first issue in 1988, talk about a behind the scenes blast from the past.

Spring Awakening

December 15th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

S/S Campaigns are trickling in and from the looks of it we can expect an exciting and inventive season of fresh ads. Two of our favorites to debut are from houses who consistently provide great imagery.

Juergen Teller creates a colorful romp for Marc Jacobs’ ads, featuring Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Masha Kirsanova. Wearing straw hats and bright 70s inspired looks from the collection, the duo looks reminiscent of Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver.

Givenchy’s spring ads by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott are minimal and stark – in contrast to last season’s bright poppy colors. The campaign featuring Daphne Groeneveld, albino male model Stephen Thompson, Iris Strubegger and of course, Mariacarla Boscono.
