Downtowners

August 9th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (43)

V’s fall fashion extravaganza is dedicated to the city of New York and it kicks off to a great start with Alasdair McLellan‘s portfolio of fashion’s inspired by the effortlessly cool look of the East Village. Styled by Beat Bolliger and shot right on Saint Mark’s Place, the shoot features combat boots, chunky silver jewelry and a whole lot of layering to create a look that is a surprisingly luxe blend of punk and grunge. Who better to embody the edgy feel of the story than Agyness Deyn? The trendsetting model (and East Village resident) is back and better than ever. With her blonde buzzcut and tribal inspired makeup, Agyness looks like a young Sinéad O’Connor.

Check out the full story when V67, The New York Issue hits newsstands.

    second and fourth photos are the best of the bunch, however im sure they could have incorporated more of the east village in the photos as opposed to a sidewalk and a bench, its very inappropriately named; this location could be anywhere in new york, nothing identifies it. i do really love the buzzcut on agy too.

  10. Whatevah says:

    WOW.

  11. singe says:

    she bores me too…..i really thought she would hold my interest for longer than she did, but weirdly, i grew bored of her very quickly, can’t explain it really, she’s clearly beautiful.

  12. Marcus says:

    O wow, she is back! I miss her editorials!

  13. glimpse says:

    the oh so shocking buzzcut is a little dull. but Agyness is a wonderful model. one of my faves actually

  14. glimpse says:

    just wish she had more hair!

  15. classico says:

    with her bob dyed black, she looked very edgy and beatnik. i think more hair is better than the buzz

  16. BAR says:

    It seems Agy will be forever, superb hair cut!!What can be more simple? The first picture is enough for me

  17. trumancapote says:

    the worst of the 80s s back :)

  18. BRM says:

    Agyness Deyn in now along with Stella Tennant Icons!

  19. Nigel S. says:

    Cheetos and cigarette’s anyone?!

    Such a throwback to the good ol’ days of the early 90’s (sans cigarette).

    Can you not hear the Ace of Base blasting from the Magnavox damnit?!

    She’s serving up some Sinead O’Connor hot.

  20. Gustavo says:

    Eve Salvail will never recover from this. She must be really truly MAD right now, somewhere in ny city.

  21. Whatevah says:

    I still can’t stop coming back to this page and looking at these images, this is a really really well done story. It’s timeless and awe inspiring sans effort.

  22. HannaV says:

    I just LOVE Agyness! The last photo is my favorite of the shoot.

  23. LD says:

    I’ve been waiting for her to do an editorial with her buzz cut. Was hoping it was going to be massive. This is just kind of simple. Would love to see her work with Meisel before she grows it out again.

  24. carola says:

    That haircut does not look good on any woman, no matter how beautiful she is, not Sinead, not Demi, not Aggy. Short hair looks amazing on some women, but this haircut reminds me of the boys at my military school when I was little. She is a good model, which saves the editorial, but that hair.. awful.

  25. jessica says:

    agyness deyn gemma ward stella tenant jacquetta wheeler doutzen kroes adriana lima and laetitia casta should be on the icons list

  26. Models and Style says:

    hahaha the third pic is awesome

  27. Kristina says:

    I love the first picture….it’s just perfect :)

  28. Nico says:

    Agyness Deyn is overrated, her time haas passed. I agree on the cheeto’s part, it’s fashion people…

  29. buci says:

    yeah I agree with Jamesy & Singe..she bores me too..
    .same face expresion..and that grunge style of hers…its all been done in 90’…nothing original..sorry

  30. Lasher says:

    looks great!!!!thanks to eve salvail……yes stella should be in the icon list

  31. antwan says:

    i love the feeling that these images give off.
    they’re so, “i don’t care” and i love that.

    carola is definitely wrong about the haircut,
    aggyness has the perfect facial shape for such
    an “extreme” cut.

  32. LeRene says:

    I guess I get a little annoyed when people say she’s giving you that “same grunge look/expression/style” what may have you. The point of the editorial, from the styling and the way the photographs were taking, to recreate that feel. Come on. It’s post-mod. Cut and paste a bit from the past and make seem new rather than reverent of former eras. Besides, she’d be the best one to get that across in photo.

  33. peterModelObsessed says:

    Angelic looking Tough Tomboy!

  34. c says:

    wow

  35. Pablo Schreiterer says:

    nice model and photos!!!

  36. Nigel S. says:

    @ Antwan – Carola is wrong about alot.
    Very self-serving. Sorry Carola!

  37. Antonio Barros says:
  38. Niins says:

  39. PeterModelObsessed says:

    Carols vs Nigel S?

    Interesting….

  40. Bored says:

    Sinead O’ Connor did it better. Oh and BTW…. I can’t stand those jeans!!

  41. Hollywood Sentinel says:

    short hair looks great on her, great look, good shots, but cheetos and cigarettes? gag

  42. simplylovely says:

    Agyness brings so much character & story to these photos.

  43. Ariel says:

    This is one of my favorites that I have seen in a long time! I love the style and add ons in these! She is a gorgeous model!
