Power of Presence

June 15th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

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.

Champions of Earth

April 22nd, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

 

In honor of Earth Day and the planet we inhabit, Models.com decided to reflect on a few of the industry’s most eco-friendly champions. These are the recognizable faces campaigning, not for customers, but for sustainability and environmental ethics, along with a simple compassion for Mother Nature. Forty-five years after the first Earth Day there is still much work to be done. Beneath the recent issues of social dissidence and global dilemmas, there is the simplest cause of them all–Earth! Here are few of fashion’s favorite sustainability advocates.

Gisele Bundchen, who recently retired from the runway, is an outspoken and longtime supporter of the environmental cause. She’s a UNEP ambassador amongst her many activism achievements and in 2014 the Rainforest Alliance added the Brazilan Super to its board of directors.

“Today is Earth Day! Let’s love, honor and take care of our beautiful Mother Earth. We are One. Our well being depends on how we take care of our planet. This is our home, the only one we have.”

Italian fashion designer Stefano Pilati of Ermenegildo Zegna donates five percent of net profits towards the Oasi Zegna initiative and has committed the luxury brand to going green and creating something more eco-conscious by using recycled yarns and natural materials. Fittingly, his AW 15 show took place in mock-forest equipped with lush greenery.

Monrowe Magazine

March 30th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Monrowe Magazine introduces its first issue “Evolution” chronicling a certain and beautiful bygone sentiment, like the antiquity of good penmanship, with editor Ricky Kim ruminating over timelessness, an answer to button-down minimalism and his own longing for substance. “The best art gives us a feeling to which we have no words…for me, personally, cinema has been the most powerful,” says Kim, a former photography art director with Ralph Lauren. The predominately black and white pages infuse that savor of cinema onto its silvery pages. The cover story shot by Fanny Latour-Lambert musters nostalgia and the perennial cool of James Dean. Glen Luchford’s masterfully filmic Prada 1997 campaigns featuring Amber Valletta are resurrected and still read as contemporary and sensory-charged as ever embracing silver-screen virtues.

By keeping storytelling at the forefront, photographers like Robert NetheryChantelle Dosser and Annelise Phillips mull over fashion with dreamy cinematic images. Lindsey Hornyak styles contemplatively synthesizing the new and old while Priscilla Polley keeps thing feeling traditional such as in “The Good Place” with Alina Krasina and Alexandra Titarenko wearing A.P.C., Creatures of Comfort and Stella Mcartney. Iconic art photographer Ralph Gibson‘s narrative body of work is featured in a retrospective as well as an interview with model/legend Kim Williams wearing Issey Miyake.

Blast from the Past: Mirabella

January 15th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The news is always going on about the death of print, but what happens when a familiar favorite magazine really does go away forever? Fans of 90s fashion will fondly remember Mirabella, sitting on the newsstand alongside issues of Elle, Bazaar and Vogue. From 1989 to 2000 the magazine founded by  fashion fixture and former editor -in -chief of American Vogue, Grace Mirabella offered up a no-nonsense take on fashion. Appealing to women who valued not only style, but substance the magazine was chock full of the era’s trademarks: supermodels, shoulder pads and colorful imagery filled with designs from the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, and Helmut Lang.

Even though the days of Mirabella have long since passed, time hasn’t stripped the publication of its charms. Looking back there are a great many aspects of Mirabella that still feel contemporary: Sarah Moon’s haunting photography is just as relevant today as it was nearly two decades ago (check the latest Valentino campaign if you need proof) and Christy Turlington – a perennial Mirabella fave – is still one of the industry’s great beauties. Today’s obsession with model-style seems foreshadowed by Mirabella’s sleek Glen Luchford editorial styled by none other than Kate Moss and it’s hard to think of a glossy that wouldn’t jump at the chance to publish a feature along these lines today. Styles may come and go but Ines de la Fressange still turns heads as trendsetter for the ages and Regan Cameron’s images of the legendary French muse are an enduring delight.

On A Wim

August 22nd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Peter Lindbergh pays tribute to director Wim Wenders’ classic, Wings of Desire with a dreamy black and white story in Numero starring Daphne Groeneveld and actor Pascal Greggory. This isn’t the first time Lindbergh has referenced Wenders fashion fans may remember his 93′ Bazaar editorial featuring Amber Valletta, as an angel watching over Manhattan. We like to think of the Numero feature as a continuation of that story, with Daphne taking on the role of angel with aplomb.
