Moral Minority

July 9th, 2015 Posted by jonathanshia » Post a comment

The rebellious French menswear magazine MASSES Magazine takes on convention in their Fall/Winter 2015 issue, pushing the boundaries and rethinking the idea of what a fashion magazine can be. Based off the theme of mœurs (French for morals and manners), the issue opens with a striking cover image of founders Eric Diulein and Sacha Quintin by CG Watkins, their faces covered by white cloth napkins as is the tradition while eating ortolans, small birds long eaten whole by the French in a culinary specialty now banned by the government. The push and pull between revealing and concealing is on display in a feature by Kira Bunse as well, with a series of portraits of a model dressed in suits and a headpiece that covers his entire face. Other features by Oliver Hadlee Pearch and Bruna Kazinoti have a sharp edge to them, crisp editorials that buzz with a dangerous energy. Take a look at our exclusive preview of the new issue below.

Bare Essentials

July 8th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

Calvin Klein released its Fall 2015 Underwear ads featuring a stripped-down Edita Vilkeviciute, Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, and Kendall Jenner.  Newer to posing strictly clad in lingerie, Kendall holds her own showing off her Calvins among the more seasoned lingerie bombshells. Making this her second Calvin campaign, the celeb status model has been nailing down her role as a go-to girl with serious staying power, recently fronting Vogue China, becoming Estee Lauder’s “Modern Muse” and just this week, closing the Chanel Haute Couture show. So pairing Kendall with three top models adept in the art of campaign sex-appeal is another step up. Creative directed by  Trey Laird and photographed in black and white by Mikael Jansson “The Original Sexy” campaign keeps things classic CK – focusing on the bare essentials, and in the case of the looking good in underwear: confidence is sexy.

Coach is making sure they leave their heavily monogrammed past far behind and the latest visuals by photo master Steven Meisel sublimely capture the essence of their new, youthful spirit. For the latest Fall/Winter campaign, that energy is never more present than in the casting of the new vanguard of top girls, Fei Fei Sun, Lexi Boling, Maartje Verhoef, Kayla Scott, Damaris Goddrie, and Mica Arganaraz. Effortlessly oozing edgy coolness, the brand is able to embody the mood of New York while simultaneously highlighting their expertise in crafting leather goods and accessories. Far from precious, the latest offering will undoubtedly make the inevitable cooler temps much more bearable. Welcome back to the cool.

Boss Mode

June 30th, 2015 Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix » Post a comment

It’s a moody, dark atmosphere that Jason Wu has envisioned for the Hugo Boss world. Doe-eyed beauty Edie Campbell and the dapper Clement Chabernaud take on a grooved-wall labyrinth in the Fall 2015 campaign shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Sleek tailoring and surprising pops of warm color are key to the visuals that exude a metropolitan edge with a confident swagger. Boss mode, indeed.

Bloodline

June 26th, 2015 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (2)

For the Givenchy Fall Winter 2015 campaign Riccardo Tisci kept it in the “just-about” family and when Donatella Versace’s presence was revealed in a preview with Tisci himself and Donatella, it nearly turned the internet upside down. It’s one thing for a designer to be in their own campaign, but including a rival fashion house… In response Tisci has said he considers the Italian empress family and both feel there should be more support within the industry. The brood also features Frankie Rayder, the face of the brand in 1999, amongst the company of Ricardo favorites like Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bochert and Stella Lucia clad in Givenchy. The styling by Carine Roitfeld  is complete with all of Tisci’s subverting calling cards: facial jewelry and septum rings, gothic ornament and severe silhouettes. The familial casting was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott set in the mileu of what could be imagined as their opulent estate. An accompanying campaign video has the stony-faced clan entertaining themselves in the sizable set.
