Femme Fatales

October 26th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The new Numero is just chock full of eroticism – though with a headline like ‘fatale’ emblazoned across the issue’s frontpage, we’d expect nothing less. The now infamous cover Sigrid Agren that left us speechless; shot by Katja Rahlwes (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) and featuring Sigrid like we’ve never seen her before, the arresting image certainly makes a statement!

An equally revealing shoot by Greg Kadel starring Keke Lindgard, puts a sexy spin on the seasons key pieces, by literally stripping away the fluff and leaving behind only statement outwear and haute accessories. With Keke looking better than ever, and Kadel’s saturated colors adding interest, the story hits all the right notes.

iRevolution

October 26th, 2012 |Posted by Betty

It’s no question that the digital world has revolutionized the fashion industry; this week alone brands like Gucci launched their iPad magazine, Gucci Style and Vogue appointed Sally Singer as their Digital Creative Director. The ability to engage with their audiences on so many fronts is exciting yet also quite overwhelming in the challenge to keep the content fresh for an increasingly visually overloaded yet still voracious viewer. Companies that are not household names like Gucci/Vogue are also capitalizing on this hunger for information. More and more, just the one printed cover for a magazine or a solo image for a campaign, is a thing of the past. Behind the scenes videos and photos allow the audience to feel privy to what once was a secret world. We chatted briefly with photographer Chiun-Kai Shih who’s worked with GQ and Vogue, about his new male supermodel iPad only covers for Asian magazine, August Man Malaysia and about the changing nature of his fashion shoots.

MDC: So why the iPad only covers?

Chiun Kai Shih: The 3 covers are online cover exclusives, and it is for iPad only. Since August Man Malaysia is not around the world yet, many readers are able to read it only on their iPad, and we are offering for those readers more exclusive online covers for certain issues.

MDC: So that means that there’s still a print cover or two to come out! So, one word to describe Alex Lundqvist, Garrett Neff and Zhao Lei.

CKS: Alex – Intellectual. Garrett – Electrifying. Zhao – Inspirational.

MDC: You’ve been a Hipstamatic “ambassador” for 2 years now. So why do you take the behind the scene images? Do you shoot all your behind the scenes with Hipstamatic?

CKS: I’ve been an ambassador for Hipstamatic since they created the Chunky Lens back in 2010 (ed note: Chiun-Kai or “Chunky”‘s own Hipstamatic lens). I use Hipstamatic to supplement all my personal & professional shoots. Behind the scene images for me really started from just testing the effects with the Chunky lens. Then the magazines started to love the images and wanted to use the shots to document the whole process. It’s nice to show all the happiness and excitement we have on set with our readers. BHTS images started out like a private diary for myself, but now I’m glad that I can share these precious moments of my life with people that really enjoy iPhone photography.

Liberty’s Confessions

October 25th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Every season we look forward to Alexander Wang‘s Confessional film series. The artfully directed mini-movies place a spotlight on a noteworthy beauty and allow us to experience the world of Wang from a new perspective. This season’s star, the always engaging Liberty Ross gives a candid look at her career, from her first cover for i-D Magazine, to her stint playing Ozzy Osbourne’s bride on an LP, and of course her memorable trip down Alexander’s runway.

Watching the clip is a treat that gives some insight into Liberty’s life away from the spotlight, and shows you just why Wang’s show is such a model favorite – more than a few girls name-checked the designer when listing their fave moments this season.

A New Arena

October 23rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Arena Homme + goes into psychedelic territory with a stellar story starring the white hot Max Rendell. Shot by Daniel Sannwald in a sleek, out of this world style, the edit features some cutting edge menswear from Jil Sander, Prada and more, but shown in a way that elevates each piece into the realm of artwork. You won’t look at these pieces in the same way again!

Mean Girls

October 22nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Cool girls have always been a source of editorial inspiration; open up any magazine under the sun and you’ll see a profile on a budding it-girl, page after page of models with just the right attitudes and a general focus on the kind of women that inspire adoration. We can’t help but be fascinated by an editorial that heads back to the schoolyard and focuses on all things cool – suburban style.

In the latest New York Times Magazine Tyrone Lebon shoots the fresh cast of Juliana Schurig,Kremi Otashliyska, Kate King, Hannah Holman and Charlene Almarvez looking like a bunch of private school escapees. Wearing the latest looks from Band of OutsidersTheoryJ.W. Anderson and more, all selected by Sara Moonves, the haute fashion high schoolers seem ready to teach a course on style, but will they let you sit at their table come lunch period? Check out the full story on NYT.
