Faustine Steinmetz Takes A Leap

January 15th, 2016 Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix » Post a comment

It’s been a long journey since London-based, French designer Faustine Steinmetz broke onto the scene and snagged a finalist spot for the prestigious LVMH Young Designer Prize. With that press boost she now debuts her first campaign exclusively here on Models.com, shot by photographer Arnaud Lajeunie. Pared-back styling courtesy of Georgia Pendlebury showcases the artful pieces in their element – wonderfully raw and strikingly masterful. Models Susanne Knipper, Raphaële, and Lou Maria bring to life the sculpturally manipulated wares with playful poses that are anything but novice.

Check out some the campaign images below.

The inimitable Julia Nobis takes many forms, this time it’s the modern Edwardian woman for Interview Magazine. Photographed looking extra smart by Christian MacDonald who captures the decade-jumping pairings devised by Karl Templer with a combined sophisticated ease. For beauty, it’s a polished affair, aside from the casual coif undone. The rest is haut monde history…

Vogue’s Side of Paradise

January 13th, 2016 Posted by steven.yatsko » Post a comment

Tucked inside the February British Vogue lives the tropic vision of photographer Tyrone Lebon who casts Damaris Goddrie and Frederikke Sofie to star in his equatorial tale of two rare beauties. Styled by Francesca Burns, the story is dressed in the latest big name spring offerings from Chanel and Prada to Marques Almeida, all finding a fitting home amongst the palms and sunsets of somewhere we’d like to be. The beauty motif is less is more. Hair stylist Syd Hayes double downs with the curls and makeup artist Lauren Parsons downplays with simple accents like a striking red lip when the moment’s right. With Lebon’s casually, daring style and the respective efforts of models and team, the fresh visuals are seductive and gorgeous without breaking a sweat.

Vogue Italia Goes Down the Rabbit Hole

January 12th, 2016 Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix » Post a comment

It’s a technicolor sartorial dream captured for the latest issue of Vogue Italia featuring platinum vision Marjan Jonkman. Sølve Sundsbø brings unearthly Easter egg hues to alien meadows hosting Alessandro Michele quirky Gucci collection. With stellar styling from the inimitable Patti Wilson the ordinary is transformed into the “so cool” – diaphanous, pastel tinge pieces that complement their peculiar background. Trippy much?

At Large and in Charge

January 11th, 2016 Posted by jonathan » Post a comment

As the Fall 2016 shows kick off in Europe, American-made At Large Magazine offers its own vision of menswear from this side of the Atlantic, with their latest issue celebrating the new season. Four covers—including the actors Jeremy Irvine and McCaul Lombardi, Simon Nessmann, and a charming illustration by Nick Turner—help set the tone for the newest edition of the magazine, which celebrated its first birthday in December. Taking surfing as a loose theme, the issue offers a disquisition on Hawaii and trips to Malibu with Nessman by Randall Mesdon and Bill Mullen and to Montauk with Brett Staal by Chad Davis with styling by Frank Muytjens. Mesdon collaborates with Turner on a surf-inspired feature combining photography and illustration, while the rising surfer Tyler Warren stars in a profile. Philippe Vogelenzang and Julie Ragolia (Jed Root) take their cues from another sport, soccer, with an active editorial starring Jamie Clarke, while Levi Bradley explores the American West for Mesdon and Ragolia. As always, At Large rounds things out with an intellectual edge, as Joel Meyerowitz writes on the power of Giorgio Morandi, and Paul d’Orléans recounts an epochal period in Hunter S. Thompson’s career.

Take a closer look at the issue, out now, below.

Chloé Travels South for Spring ’16

January 7th, 2016 Posted by steven.yatsko comments (3)

Chloe‘s sets its Spring/Summer 2016 campaign in “The Paris of South America” traveling to vibrant Buenos Aires. Lensed by Theo Wenner who captures the rich magic of the city, the images return models  Antonina Petkovic and  Ilvie Wittek, while newcomers Celine Bouly and Ari Westphal make their campaign debut. It’s a spirited and romantic take on creative director Clare Waight Keller‘s designs–a combination of delicate ombré dresses, silk and lace pieces and flowing silhouettes that pair well with Wenner’s naturally dynamic eye. That energy is imbued into the campaign’s DNA, cinematically lit with the golden hour sun and easygoing posing. The results certainly inspire wanderlust with warmer weather in mind as the temperatures begin to drop.
