Winter to Spring

March 3rd, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The cover of the latest issue of DSection may be a study in winter white, but the pages inside make it clear that spring is well on its way. Arthur Gosse and Baptiste Radufe, dressed by Jimi Urquiga in Thom Browne’s Versailles-inspired designs, are photographed by Jack Waterlot for the accompanying story lounging in a snowbound cabin, but the floral prints and bright sportswear found throughout the rest of the menswear magazine offer a welcome prelude to the thaw. Alexi Lubomirski shoots the iconic Daria Werbowy on a secluded patch of welcoming sand, while Nicolas Valois captures new face Daniel van der Deen looking steamy in Dries Van Noten’s rich palm tree-print shirt. Many of today’s biggest faces make appearances as well, from Anders Hayward and Marc Sebastian Faiella to Alexandre Cunha and Ton Heukels, all with that certain elegance expected from DSection.

First Look: The Last Magazine

February 7th, 2014 |Posted by Betty

The Daria Werbowy allure isn’t about a look as much as it’s about an attitude. With her innate presence and nonchalant take on fashion, the Canadian superstar has inspired the greats of the business. Is it any wonder then that she’s on her second cover of The Last Magazine. Shot by Mikael Jansson and styled by Alastair McKimm, the arresting image perfectly captures the Werbowy allure – cool, collected and complete with now famous nosering. In the accompanying story Mark Carrasquillo (Art Partner) provides the sleek makeup, while Yannick D’Is (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) creates slicked back hair, both of which add to the dramatic beauty of Jansson’s high contrast shots. With an up close and personal view of one of the world’s most beautiful women, the expressive photos are sure to look incredible in The Last’s larger than life format.

Spring Forward

January 29th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

You wouldn’t know it from the frigid cold gripping New York City at the moment, but spring is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: new campaigns. After our round­ups of the best Spring 2014 womenswear ads (here and here), we thought it was time to give the guys their fair due. Here’s our picks for some of our favorite men’s campaigns for the season, all of them featuring rich explosions of color to help us through these dreary, gray winter days.

tumblr_mz1q7argpR1r4ps7po1_12801-763x1024
Hugo Boss HUGO line
Last July, photographer Pierre Debusschere hit the Utah salt flats—home of the famed land­speed trials so powerfully illuminated in Rachel Kushner’s breakout 2013 novel The Flamethrowers— for Hugo Boss’ energetic, athletic younger label. Victor Nylander, Sung Jin Park, and Andrew Westermann are joined by Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Kasia Struss and the lambent, translucent hues of what look like shimmering mirages, add a soft tinge of glowing color to the blinding whiteness of the pristine sodium crust.

222137-800w
Jil Sander
The namesake designer may be once again dearly departed, but she has left her artistic, distinctly modernist fingerprints all over the house’s latest campaign, shot by David Sims. Ben Waters and Edie Campbell wear their sharp, graphic ensembles —distressed plaid for him and tangled florals for her against a faded background combining the strictest geometry with the soft delicacy of nature.

213814-800w
Kenzo
In their second collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari‘s idiosyncratic art magazine Toilet Paper, designers Humberto Leon & Carol Lim have demonstrated their revolutionary talents extend far beyond their charming runway designs. A relaxed Devon Aoki perches upon a trout carried on Paul Boche‘s shoulders, both of them dressed in a soothing, swaying ripple print inspired by the surf of Leon and Lim’s native Southern California and lit by the harsh glow of red neon.

PE_ADS_SS14(1)-5
Patrik Ervell
After making a stunning campaign début with his stark black ­and­ white images of Max Von Isser in an overgrown field last Fall, Ervell enlisted up ­and­ coming photographer Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) for an appropriately luminous series of images that find Michael Lange wearing his sailing­ inspired pieces against the digitally enhanced shine of an impossibly rich and vibrant oceanic sunset.

unnamed-9
Salvatore Ferragamo
The Italian house’s campaigns can sometimes have an anodyne feel of anonymous luxury to them, but Spring finds Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) bringing a vivid pop of classic Modernism to their images. Stalwarts Sean O’Pry and Daria Werbowy bask in the radiant warmth of the sherbet­colored angles and columns that bring to mind the cheery, iconic designs of the Mexican Pritzker Prize–winning architect Luis Barragán.

Campaign Confidential

January 10th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

CELINE

The vibrant SS14 collection was a departure for Celine but its buoyant energy is captured perfectly by Juergen Teller and Stephen Galloway. The Kandinsky-esque prints and primary colors come alive thanks to Galloway’s dance moves and elegant poses by Daria Werbowy andJulia Nobis

ALEXANDER WANG

Bad girls do it well in Alexander Wang’s cheeky spring ads, Steven Klein shoots in a bathroom stall as Anna Ewers poses in one of Wang’s memorable parental advisory mesh tops. The gritty vibe is underscored by Karl Templer‘s styling and creative direction by Pascal Dangin.

MIU MIU

Given that we’re right in the middle of awards season, Miu Miu’s actress fronted campaign seems especially timely. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shoot an array of rising stars including fashion favorites Lupita Nyong’o, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Bella Heathcote

TOM FORD

When you wear Tom Ford, all eyes are on you so it only seems fitting that the designer’s S/S 14 campaign centers around a crowdsurfing theme. Models Esther HeeschConrad Bromfield and Carlos Peters get carried away – literally – as Ford shoots them in glamorous pieces from his ready to wear, eyewear and accessories empire.

Daria Delight

January 7th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion models on the covers of major American publications? Wonders never cease! 2014 just started and already we’ve been treated to Joan Smalls on the cover of Elle, now Harper’s Bazaar surprises with a beautiful cover of Daria Werbowy. Shot by Daniel Jackson and styled by Alastair McKimm the stripped down cover and accompanying editorial offer an appealing departure from from what we’ve come to expect from Bazaar. McKimm’s minimal chic selection of pieces works perfectly with Daria’s innate style (love the Proenza Schouler on the cover) and Jackson’s studio shots are modern and beautiful.

See the full story including an interview with Daria on Harper’s Bazaar.com

In Her Own Words

August 2nd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The September issue of British Vogue may feature a stellar Patrick Demarchelier shot of Daria Werbowy on its cover, but the modeling star’s most intriguing contribution to the magazine lies inside the corresponding interview. The insightful piece by Jo Ellison provides a window into Daria’s private world – from her passion for sailing, to her feelings on her landmark career and the fashion business itself. For any appreciator of Daria – or any fan of gutsy, articulate women in general – the piece is a must read.

ON THE BUSINESS OF MODELING : “People are always trying to fit us into boxes and say, she’s this kind of girl or she’s that kind of girl. I think I was feeling that very acutely. I was really confused as to who I was supposed to be. It is very difficult for anyone in the public eye.”

“I’ve always wanted to be a supporter of women and break the gender roles of what women can be. So I when I started working a lot and seeing myself getting sucked into the idea of what model is… I realized I’m not that person.”

“In the beginning I didn’t get it.I wanted to look like me, instead of being done up to look like this older woman. I didn’t understand fashion. Now I have more respect. I see what these people are trying to do me. ”

ON TAKING A BREAK FROM FASHION : “It was more a way of embracing who I was and realizing that I had to be true to myself. To keep that mental sanity.”

ON FEELING PRIDE ABOUT HER WORK WITH CELINE “She feels connected to the woman I’m becoming.”
