Campaign Candy

January 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Appealing new ads from fashion’s young, innovative designers.

PROENZA SCHOULER

The S/S ads from Proenza are all about a dreamy mood and David Sims‘ imagery featuring the cooler than thou duo of Julia Nobis and Irina Nikolaeva creates a strong, yet ethereal vibe that goes well with the brand’s eclectic Tumblr influenced collection. The mismash of visual styles and inspirations found on the social media site are mirrored in Sims’ colorful, collage approach to the campaign.


THEYSKENS THEORY

Even before Olivier Theyskens took the helm at Theory the brand was about the kind of effortlessly beautiful clothes that girls want to wear. Now that Theyskens is heading things, the famed designer has added an appealingly cool vibe to the collections and the line’s seasonal imagery. Girl of the moment, Wylie Hays is front and center in Willy Vanderperre (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists)’s stark shots as is a highly covetable new Theory handbag.


3.1 PHILLIP LIM

Phillip Lim hits the streets with a stylish campaign that shows you just how much his designs stand out. Katryn Kruger and Franzi Mueller strut down crowded NYC sidewalks in head to toe Lim working those chic Spring patterns and bringing the punky 3.1 look to life in Alessio Bolzoni‘s ad images.


BALMAIN

Balmain keeps it simple with a beautiful David Sims campaign featuring Manon Leloup. When you have a beautiful girl and the intricately decadent designs of Olivier Rousteing, you don’t need much more to entice your audience.

Falling 4 Pre-Fall

December 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Pre-fall is in full swing and the season between seasons is providing us with plenty of eye-candy this time around. Take a look at some of our favorites so far and be sure to let us know what you’re loving in the comments.



HELMUT LANG

Neutrals – particularly dramatic black and white – are the bread and butter of the new incarnation of Helmut Lang. Don’t let last season’s foray into bold color fool you, designers Michael and Nicole Colovos have always had a special place in their heart for a restrained color palette. The duo also loves a sharply cut leather jacket and a well applied use of ombre, so their pre-fall look was just one hit after another.


Calvin Klein Collection
Models: Magdalena Jasek, Sara Blomqvist, Katya Ryabinkina

Naturally designer Francisco Costa gave Calvin loyalists minimalism, but the brand’s pre-fall looks had an autumnal twist. Described as ‘essential classics’ Costa’s pieces were appealing reinventions of pieces every woman ought to have in her wardrobe; the perfect camel coat, the figure hugging shift, even a few pared down dresses that can go from day into evening.



GIVENCHY
Model: Ricardo Figueiredo

Givenchy always keeps us on our toes and their pre-fall offerings are no exception; leather shorts, deconstructed argyle sweaters, blazers emblazoned with the word pervert – everything is just a little off-kilter, but that keeps things exciting. Like many designers do during this season, Riccardo Tisci looked to the idea of essentials and took some of his bestselling pieces into fresh territory. Just when you think you’ve tired of those ubiquitous doberman t-shirts, Tisci gives you a remixed version of the statement look done in a digitized print.


3.1 PHILLIP LIM

Easily the most sophisticated take on the biker lore that we’ve seen in ages. Fashionphiles are sure to see some Balenciaga parallels in this collection, but adapting high fashion ideas for contemporary set is part of Lim’s formula. Lim played with embellishment, adding in crystals, embroidery and loads of layering for added interest. As always accessories are on point, with a sporty brand new backpack serving as the standout piece.

Dressed to Kill

August 29th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Natasa Vojnovic‘s skill in front of the camera is legendary and she brings her all to the pages of Tush with a striking cover/editorial by Txema Yeste. Wearing menswear inspired pieces from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Salvatore Ferragamo and Stella McCartney, Natasa poses and preens in leather jackets and tailored suiting. Bernat Buscató‘s inventive styling gives Natasa plenty to work with wardrobe wise, but the attitude she brings to each shot is all her own.

Girls on Film

July 20th, 2011 |Posted by contributor

3.1 Phillip Lim “Girls On Bikes” Women’s FW11 Collection from 3.1PhillipLim on Vimeo.

What could be better than leisurely biking through the picturesque New York City streets? Biking while dressed head-to-toe in pieces from 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s F/W 2011 collection. San Francisco-based photographer and filmmaker Andrew Paynter collaborates once again with the designer on a lookbook video that supremely embodies the spirit of the Phillip Lim woman: brave, independent, and impeccably dressed. Models Karlijn, Xiao Wen Ju, and Kasia Wrobel, casting by Daniel Peddle Casting, pedal through the city with glamour and ease to showcase the wearability of the entire collection. Bicycles may very well be the must-have accessory for fall! Click here to view the film.

Kristina Salinovic transforms for the aptly titled Evanescent Metamorphoses, the newest film from Karl Lagerfeld showcasing the Chanel Fall-Winter 2011/12 Pre-collection. In this latest installment, the gender lines are blurred as Salinovic moves from her signature androgynous state toward a more feminine version of herself, all the while draped in Lagerfeld’s sumptuous creations. The dream-like quality of the film is the perfect setting for a wardrobe composed entirely of Chanel. Click here to view the film. (reviews by Lynley Flanagan)

The Weavers of Lim

May 12th, 2011 |Posted by jonathanshia

Fashion videos are a dime a dozen these days, but leave it to 3.1 Phillip Lim to really do it right. The label’s new video “Weavers“, shot in Palm Springs, presents the stark, graphic F/W 2011 men’s collection against the blank, imposing surfaces of the desert town’s California modernist architecture. Directed by Andrew Paynter with a propulsive soundtrack from Sebastien Perrin, the film features RJ King, Miles Frank, and new face Craig (all cast by Daniel Peddle) striding across vacant parking lots and along sun-bleached stone walls with heroic purpose.

The short feels like a natural progression from Lim’s January presentation in Paris, all sharp lines and clean minimalism. The video, as Lim explained on Nowness.com, where it had its premiere yesterday, is an “attempt to capture that experience of seeing someone in snatches,” a reflection of the fragmented nature of contemporary life and unifying power . “It’s just three strangers going about their day. They cross paths, and feel a kindred spirit because of the way they dress.” (story by Jonathan Shia)
