Marvelously Mysterious

January 26th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

We’ve been curious about Interview Russia since we saw that artfully done Leo DiCaprio cover and now we finally get a peek inside. Steven Pan‘s atmospheric story features Kelly Mittendorf and Patricia van der Vliet  as women of mystery in what might be the world’s poshest library. Sporting big jewels, sleek hair and bold looks from the likes of  Prada & Yves Saint Laurent, both girls look phenomenal. Pan only hints at what the secret behind the come hither looks, but we’re intrigued all the same.

No Code

January 25th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Are industry insiders the new designers? Tod’s seems to think so, the venerable Italian brand partners with Jefferson Hack for NO CODE, a capsule collection for men and women. Combining the legendary Tod’s craftsmanship with Jefferson’s idiosyncratic take on fashion makes for an exquisite array of pieces that are timeless yet modern. The corresponding campaign by Roe Ethridge is just as eye-catching, with Meghan Collison and Christian Brylle looking as nonchalantly cool as ever. Take a look at these exclusive behind the scenes images and interviews to get a feel for the world of No Code.

See the entire collection on the NO CODE web site.

Under the Sea

January 23rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion’s fixation with all things aquatic played out on the S/S runways with a barrage of scuba inspired looks and gilded creations worthy of The Little Mermaid. Never ones to simply showcase a trend, Dazed & Confused offers an abstract take on the look with a brilliantly styled story shot by Sharif Hamza. As an otherworldly surfer-cum-fantasy girl, Emily Baker shines while Karen Langley pushes boundaries with her shape shifting selection of looks that seem crafted from coral. Amazing makeup by Lisa Houghton and slick hair courtesy of Rudi Lewis complete the look, but keep your eyes peeled for some incredible shell pieces from Peeble London!

Backstage Boys!

Dolce & Gabbana knows a thing or two about male beauty. The iconic brand’s imagery is always chock full of the very best boys and their F/W show was no exception. This season they let the cameras backstage capture the guys at their most candid, showing off personality, perfect physiques and of course that ingeniously tailored fall collection. Keep your eyes peeled for River Viiperi, Benjamin Eidem, Jacob Coupe and all your favorites in this exclusive video courtesy of Swide. What a wonderful way to start out the week – it is sure to bring a smile to your face!

Image Adjustments

January 19th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With top models, A-List photographers and a fresh outlook, popular brands are redefining their image just in time for campaign season.

CALVIN KLEIN JEANS
PHOTOGRAPHY Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
STYLING Karl Templer
MODELS Arran SlyJoan SmallsLara StoneMatthew TerryMyles CrosbyToni Garrn

CK knows how to create an image filled with sex appeal and they’ve never shied away from pushing the envelope when it comes to visuals. CK Jeans’ ads are as much about the sex appeal of Lara Stone and Toni Garrn as they are about the brightly colored denim. Fabien Baron‘s creative direction keeps this M&M wet n’wild extravaganza on the sleek side, but make no mistake the line is out to turn up the heat with these shots.

TRUE RELIGION
PHOTOGRAPHY Alexi Lubomirski
STYLING Patti Wilson
MODELS Brad Kroenig, Tallulah Morton, Julia Dunstall & Alicia Rountree

Brad Kroenig as an easy rider? That’s a concept we can get behind. True Religion focuses on personality for Spring with ads themed around denim clad mavericks, wanderers and rebels. The American west plays a strong role in Alexi’s imagery as does Patti Wilson’s always inventive styling. Check out the behind the scenes video for a sense of the atmosphere on the day of the shoot.

JUICY COUTURE
PHOTOGRAPHY Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
STYLING Melanie Ward
MODELS Anna Selezneva

Juicy has pulled in heavy hitters Inez & Vinoodh to focus on the line’s fashionable side. Does Anna S. looking chic on the streets of Los Angeles make you forget about those ubiquitous velour sweatsuits? Maybe not, but I&V will always give you a great shot of a blonde tossing her hair.

TOPSHOP
PHOTOGRAPHY Josh Olins
STYLING Kate Phelan
MODELS Lara Mullen, Magda Laguinge & Marihenny Pasible

Two sides to every young woman – the glamorous diva and the girl next door, Topshop illustrates the concept via contrasting Olins images of the campaign’s fresh faces. It is impressive how high end Topshop’s fast fashion pieces look with the right styling. If we didn’t know better we’d swear that white dress on Marihenny was Versace…

DIESEL
PHOTOGRAPHY Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
STYLING Ludivine Poiblanc
MODELS Alison NixAshley SmithCatherine McNeilDmitriy TannerLiu WenMaria PalmPatrick Kafka & Simon Nessman

A massive robot, a dollhouse on fire, Catherine McNeil emerging from a potted plant, Diesel goes for the offbeat with their wide array of props and while we’re not sure what the overarching message behind this imagery is, but it is certainly striking.

A Blue Kiss

January 19th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Ming Xi, Kate King, Anais Pouliot and Karo Mrozkova headline Vogue Russia‘s  February issue with a sultry shot by Patrick Demarchelier, but what were really loving is the beauty mood of the corresponding editorial. Fulvia Farolfi creates a standout royal blue lip on the girls, while Laurent Philippon provides the undone hair. Combine these elements with Ekaterina Mukhina‘s elegant styling and you’ve got a story that pops off the page. Looking to recreate the daring blue pout for yourself? Give Makeup Forever’s Flash Color case a try.
