She’s Electric!

May 22nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion goes high gloss and high tech in Santiago and Mauricio‘s latest film for Nowness. Watch as Alana Zimmer is transformed into an Prada and Chanel clad anime dream girl dressed in over the top designs chosen by stylist Elizabeth Sulcer. Flashing lights and a pulsating groove keep this kinetic short going as do Alana’s cool moves and the techno Tron-esque atmosphere created by Santiago and Mauricio.

Olympians

May 21st, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Interview catches Olympic fever with a stark story by Mikael Jansson featuring Constance Jablonski, Suvi Koponen Matt Terry, Myles Crosby and Nicklas Kingo. With a series of elegant black and whites featuring the season’s graphic swimwear as chosen by Karl Templer, we think the toned bodies and diving motif of the story call to mind, 1938′s Olympia – but what say you?

Editorial Inspiration: Rene Gruau

May 17th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

As one of the foremost fashion illustrators of all time, René Gruau made a lasting impact on the fashion industry. His work for designers like Christian Dior, Jacques Fath, Balenciaga, Elsa Schiaparelli, Pierre Balmain and Hubert de Givenchy, elevated their legendary designs into the realm of art and helped to change the way women dressed. Dazed & Confused pays tribute to Gruau’s style with a futuristic story by Daniel Jackson, styled by Karen Langley. With eye-catching black and white makeup by Yadim mimicking Gruau’s bold brushstrokes on the faces of Ava Smith, Codie Young &Madison Headrick, the edit is a modernized look at the master’s signature style.

This editorial also marks Yadim’s very first as the new International Makeup Designer for Dior, Naturally he was inspired by Gruau’s drawings for the house and he developed the concept based on those images.

A New Star

May 16th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Emmanuelle Alt is a creature of habit and the pages of Vogue Paris during her tenure reflect that. We’ve come to expect the same photographers, the same creative teams and the same models month after month – nothing wrong with that mind you, but we can’t help but miss the good ol’ days. Carine Roitfeld had a wonderful habit of picking a fresh model and highlighting her with a great story or cover – one of the many things that kept the magazine exciting. Even though we’re treated to the joy of seasoned supermodel Gisele Bundchen on the June  VP cover, we’re still more interested in the VP newcomers.

Nadja Bender makes her Vogue Paris debut in chic style with an only-girl story by David Sims. The graphic and gorgeous shoot is styled by Joe McKenna and features his signature panache, with visors, veils and those Stella McCartney pjs all making an appearance. The end result is a story that feels retro (we’re getting Marlene Dietrich vibes in some shots) but is clearly rooted in the now. Bender registers beautifully in each shot, even managing to make that quilted Balmain vest look good.

The always avant garde men’s style bible Man About Town is out with a new issue and the dreamy new story inside by Paolo Roversi doesn’t disappoint. Roversi, one of the remaining masters of romantic imagery combined with Katy England‘s terrific styling on unique new face Simon Sabbah make this editorial a serene treat for the eyes.
