Miuccia’s World

June 19th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

One can imagine Miuccia Prada’s world “for the slightly disenfranchised” is filled with characters of an uncanny quality. In her designs there’s that murmur of jolie laide that fine-tunes weirdness and statement to resemble the regular (maybe it’s Miuccia’s mime training at work). Her fidelity to art-house actors has filled Prada and, the younger, more capricious, Miu Miu‘s campaigns regularly with a cinephile’s dream ensemble. The Italian empress has pulled from the silver screen A-list talent like James McAvoy, Dane Dehaan, Marine Vacth, and Elle Fanning for previous seasons and A/W 15 is true to form: Craig McDean lensed Scoot McNairy, Michael Shannon, and Tye Sheridan all uniformed in Prada menswear. The Miu Miu campaign photographed by Steven Meisel, entitled “Subjective Reality”, puts Maddison Brown, Hailey Gates, Mia Goth, Stacy Martin on the streets of New York City done up in Miu Miu wares. The images feature brand favorites and leads in Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac”  Mia and Stacy. See both campaigns below.

Cara’s Cover!

June 19th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (2)

It was only a matter of time before Cara Delevingne got her first solo American Vogue cover. The July issue of the glossy is fronted by the cult-status model and actress photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. For the editorial, the Paper Town actress is styled by Tonne Goodman in Prada’s fall collection and is accompanied by co-star Nat Wolf. Vogue also put together a very sentimental video compilation of friends like Taylor Swift, Binx Walton and Kendall Jenner celebrating her big moment. Models.com remembers when Cara stopped by the office way back when in 2011 and, as she does, charmed her way into our hearts. See her talking about her love for performing here.

The Pool

Art and fashion publication 160g Magazine swept in like a breath of sultry summer air last week with the release of their latest issue, dedicated to sport. Cover boy Ben Bowers indulges in the rites of summer in a new video shot in sharp black and white in the sun capital of Miami. Directed by Claudio diNapoli with creative direction by Benjamin Armand, the short finds Bowers lounging by the pool, skating through the streets, and caught in a drenching summer storm, all while dressed in the season’s coolest sportswear. Take a look at the video and the pristine story below photographed by Sylvia Castioni. For more from the latest issue, go to the 160grams site.

Gucci Gucci

Alessandro Michele‘s vision for Gucci sets the world in the gritty cityscape of LA. Models are all in various states of transport, whether by train or foot, adorned in Michele’s first foray for the juggernaut brand. Shot by Glen Luchford, the retro looking visuals match nostalgia with modernity as background figures provide abrupt variation to designs  in the foreground. Again, the floral prints mixed with the staunch rigidity of industrialization drive home the point of dualities and fluidity between the runway and the street. See more of the images below.

Power of Presence

June 15th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (3)

Anthony Vaccarello released his AW 15-16 campaign featuring a fierce looking Amber Valletta dressed in a more tomboyish swath of clothes–in contrast to the sexed-up Anja Rubik from SS 15. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin lensed the icon for the latest campaign zeroing in on Valletta’s seasoned presence. Fresh off the runway for Marc Jacobs and glowing in The New York Times Style Magazine‘s The Face editorial shot by Craig McDean, the prolific muse makes staying in-demand look easy.

Peet Dullaert FW 15

Fashion as armor is never more needed and evident than in Peet Dullaert‘s latest Fall/Winter 2015 campaign. Drawing on visual references from Milla Jovovic’s Joan of Arc in The Messenger, the deconstructed collection features “Techno-Plissé”, pleated paneling, heavy stitching, and raw edges to create a streamlined, flowing silhouette for his woman. With a compelling take on color choices and fabric mixing, Dullaert truly wishes to promote the spirit of the self-made individual and unique identity by giving his version of innovative design “in defense of beauty”.

Change of Guard

June 10th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (8)

As soon as Vanity Fair Italy previewed cover images from Vogue Italia’s “China” issue the internet was abuzz over the non-Meisel round-up of photographers– confirming the whispers that the storied lensman would longer shoot every cover. For models, having a VI cover by Steven Meisel served as a badge of honor and a telltale of imminent visibility.  Steven’s famous partiality for beautiful women and inimitable eye has forecasted and launched numerous careers. So needless to say, his absences after holding the fort since 1988 is big news.

For the the “China” issue, Vogue Italia enlisted Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and Steven Klein to help carry the weight of Meisel’s absence, shooting a cast of established Chinese beauties Fei Fei Sun, Xiao Wen JuJing Wen and newer faces like Yuan Bo Chao, Fernanda Ly and Gia Tang. Each cover bears the visual thumbprint from this league of extraordinary photographers: McDean’s romantic evocations; Sorrenti’s audacious arrangements; Mert and Marcus’ high-styled narratives and Klein’s surreal interpretations. Whether or not it’s enough to fill the void, the praise-worthy selection of models by these modern masters in celebration of China certainly stands on its own.

Nastya Sten covers Numero China shot by Txema Yeste. Imagined in a muggy, moody den, Tim Lim provides dramatic styling with a touch of exotic theater. There’s nothing subtle about the beauty look by Victor Alvarez: a palette of creamy skin tones, bold color accents and defining black strokes. For hair, Nicolas Jurnjack executes unruly wispy braids to deliberate effect. With all the elaborate ornament, svelte Nastya plays it cool letting the warmly lit backdrop and styling do the hard work.
