First Look: Russh

May 31st, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The new issue of Russh is focused on beauty and it is evident right from the start; with Jourdan Dunn channeling Sade circa Smooth Operator on Benny Horne‘s sleek cover it is hard not to think about all things glamorous. Rather than simply listing cosmetic tips, Russh attempt to explore the issue from all sides, asking what constitutes modern beauty and why our society is intrinsically fascinated with the concept. Naturally, there is plenty of eye-candy to enjoy – from Marte Mei van Haaster shooting a revealing artistic story, to Daniella Rech‘s exploration of clean, fresh scrubbed faces, this edition is filled with a chic, feminine take on what’s gorgeous now.

Seeing Spots

May 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When Haider Ackermann filled his S/S13 runway with transparent creations emblazoned with black and white dots, it seemed like an unusual move. Polka dots are a fashion standard dating back years, but the diminutive patterns are more often associated with the prim styles of the 1950s than with the kinds of cutting-edge wares favored on Paris’ runways. The designer so known for his innovative use of lush, saturated color was showing another side, taking one of the most uncool of motifs and making it feel new.

In keeping with the current craze for all things graphic, stylists have embraced the versatility of these simple circles, working Ackermann’s creations into a variety of editorials. On occasion the interpretations don’t veer too far from the runway approach (fashion abides by the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ mantra whenever it can) but the excitement comes when the spots are complimented by clashing patterns to create a dynamic visual treat. Whether it is layering in another of Ackermann’s prints from S/S or adding a bold kimono for interest, the real fun lies in the mix which offers stylists an opportunity to show their creativity.

Resort Getaway

May 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Resort is underway and designers are turning out collections filled with surprising elements – whether the look is downtown cool, or polished elegance, the mini-season is off to a refreshing start.

BURBERRY PRORSUM
Designer: Christopher Bailey
Models: Ava Smith & Charlotte Wiggins

The Burberry look has always been a mix of luxe and offbeat, so this season’s playful touches like jeweled detailing and transparent lace skirts feel just right. Bailey masterfully reinterprets the house’s standards season after season, so for those in search of trench coats, cardigans and well cut jackets there is plenty to enjoy. Statement looks like pastel brocade topcoats and crystal covered pencil skirts provide the requisite easy-going glamour resort is all about.

DKNY
Models: Valery KaufmanEmeline Ghesquiere

You can have the DKNY resort collection in any color – as long as it’s black. DKNY has always reflected the needs of an urbane, youthful consumer but for resort things got gritty. Perhaps taking a cue from the haute-goth stylings of lines like Givenchy, DKNY filled their collection with hard-edge black pieces in multiple incarnations. Lacy blouses, transparent floor-length skirts and textured bomber jackets all in inky shades. A few chic metallic pieces added interest, but the stark looks stole the show.

OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Designer: Oscar de la Renta
Models: Kayley ChabotAmanda MurphyMagdalena JasekMaria Borges Manuela Frey & Pauline Van der Cruysse

Who can resist Oscar de la Renta’s frothy brand of femininity. For the legendary designer the resort season meant an abundance of lively colors and cocktail frocks filled with color, pattern and a youthful joie de vivre. Even if you’re not rushing out to brunch, or a fabulous party in one of De La Renta’s creations everyone can appreciate the grandeur of his vision.

Creativity is on display in the latest Vogue Russia, Ben Toms‘s chic surrealist story starring Marie Piovesan is a perfect addition to the publication’s Dasha Zhukova fronted Art Issue.
