Asymmetries and Ambiguities

April 29th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (2)

Steven Meisel delivered his visual quintessence for Prada’s pre-fall 2015 campaign. Appearing determined with penetrating glares, the duos Maartje Verhoef, Niels Trispel, Willow Hand, Artur Chruszcz, Aya Jones, Johannes Spaas, Natalie Westling, Finnlay Davis, Julia Nobis, & Tim Schuhmacher are a mixture of the freshest new faces and some Prada favorites. If Julia feels familiar it’s because she can add this to her Meisel-résumé, marking her second one for the brand along with her four covers of Vogue Italia. The pre-fall looks work tartan prints and mild pomp against the understated, and the introspective group executes that identity well, preparing us for the colder days to come. In Prada’s own words, the images play with “asymmetries and ambiguities” and elicit “elegance, poise and dare”. The campaign has the definitive feel of Meisel’s classic, cast-centric work and Miuccia’s visionary originality.

Seven For Spring

April 29th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

British men’s biannual Seventh Man Magazine celebrates the arrival of spring this week with their latest issue, featuring a cheery Jon Kortajarena winking from the cover. He shows off his dance moves in a story within by Lawrence Thomas, dressed in vibrant prints by Dean Hau. The editor-in-chief Hau also photographs and styles Mariano Ontañon in a vivid feature, while John-Paul Pietrus brings a dark, moody Seventies vibe in his story. Michael Morgan and Jace Moody play with pups and Charlie Ayres Taylor and Jack Mather showcase Yohji Yamamoto’s menswear. Profiles of a clutch of rising British actors, including Russell Tovey and Matthew Beard—just nominated for a Tony for his work in Skylight—round out the issue, which also asks, in a feature spotlighting the season’s quirkiest pieces, “Who wants to be normal anyway?” Take a look at an exclusive preview of the new issue, out this week, below.

Dreamland

April 28th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

For the latest issue of Vogue Turkey photographers Sean and Seng take cover girl Sam Rollinson sightseeing in dreamland. The inside story, through the photo-duo’s signature wistful and dreamy perspective, features the Brit beautified by natural half-light in Margate, a seaside British town in Thanet; of which the painter JMW Turner remarked, “the skies over Thanet are the loveliest in all Europe”. That silken light serves up a sublime ambience for Sam in spring couture styled by Konca Aykan and posh hair and makeup provided by Cyndia Harvey and Lotten Holmqvist. Check out the exclusive preview of the spread below and the cover here.

I am Legend

April 27th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (12)

For Vogue Brasil’s fortieth birthday, they laud none other than their own Brazilian legend, Gisele Bundchen. Though she walked her last show in the recent São Paolo Fashion Week, ending 20 years on the runway, the mega-model and mother continues to raise her fabled career to even more illustrious proportions. The cover shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin puts an unclothed and statuesque Gisele on a pedestal looking absolutely immortal. A very apropos choice.

W Magazine has nothing but the sci-fi setting of Mad Max on its brain with their latest cover featuring actress and model Charlize Theron. On the other hand, inside the issue models Aamito Lagum and Senait Gidey give us a more retro, 70s vibes with wide-legged trousers, muted color tones, & a mellow mood created by photographer Charlotte Wales and stylist Felicia Garcia-Rivera. So for Spring, take their advice, cut your tight skinny jeans some slack, and fall into a more free silhouette.

Fine China

April 23rd, 2015 Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix comments (5)

China has been haunted by literary tropes that have shown but a fraction of the rich, dynastic culture it has. For this summer’s Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition, “China: Through the Looking Glass”, The Costume Institute in collaboration with the Met’s Department of Asian Art, will examine the influence of the Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion. For the latest issue of American Vogue, Steven Meisel and Grace Coddington have taken this examination one step further highlighting elegant, vintage couture creations on the lithe form of Fei Fei Sun. From the blossoming branches of a new season to come to the alluring, sensual mystery of a woman not to be trifled with, this year’s exhibit shows the range of narratives that surrounds the enigmatic country of the Far East.

Pick up the latest issue of Vogue on newsstands this week.
