April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

Many magazines set out to bridge the worlds of art and fashion, but few compare to the engaging volumes Document assembles with each issue. After last fall’s Paul McCarthy designed cover, Document’s offering for S/S 14 continues to combine arresting editorials, bastions of the contemporary art world, and vital conversations to provide a comprehensive window onto today’s cultural landscape.

Seeking “spontanaeity, authenticity, and simplicity,” Document No. 4 addresses authorship with photographer Nan Goldin, architecture with Brazil’s Carla Juaçaba, and diversity with Liya Kebede and Bethann Hardison. Elsewhere, fashion crossovers Willem Dafoe and Erykah Badu discuss unique presence in the respective worlds of cinema and music, while legends of style Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Joe McKenna (Art Partner) collide to discuss fashion past, present, and future.

As for the editorials, Document showcases top models Malgosia Bela and Freja Beha Erichsen on two different covers that illuminate each versatile beauty’s standalone presence. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby shoots Malgosia styled by Jodie Barnes in an array of guises that hit the season’s boldest trends. Exploring performance, photographer Collier Schorr captures Freja’s nuanced turn as a Method actor. The unstoppable Amanda Wellsh plays around before Alex Olson’s lens, Lily McMenamy styles herself for a profile of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, and things turn surreal when Camilla Akrans (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Management + Artists) shoots Missy Rayder. Not to be surpassed in the months between biannual issues, Document and photographer Christian MacDonald nominate 17 of spring’s most promising faces, all sporting pre-Fall looks styled by Document’s Fashion Director James Valeri.

Be on the lookout for Document No. 4, on newsstands now.

First Look: Lurve

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Lurve Magazine‘s next era kicks off with a stellar issue with a fresh perspective on fashion. Editor in chief Lyna V. Ahanda, new fashion director Moreno Galatà and fashion editor Alessandra Conti create an issue focused on a modern interpretation of 90s style fashion photography. Bringing all the raw energy and individualism that defined the 90s aesthetic back into the mix is an inspired move and one that makes each editorial feel vital.

The issue’s six covers take the theme head on with a diverse lineup of models & photogs; reportage photographer Olivia Arthur shoots model Adwoa Aboah in Louis Vuitton; while Lily McMenamy sports Céline in a stylized shot by Sonia Sieff. Queen of cool Caroline de Maigret shows another side in an elegant image by Alessio BolzoniRobbie McKinnon sports a brush and stacks of vinyl in his cheeky cover by Edmund Aves. The always chic Elisa Sednaoui is serene in Prada in her cover by Laurence Ellis (Visual Artist UK ) and Hanne Gaby Odiele delights in a striking image by Dario Catellani (Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)

Inside the content is every bit as compelling as the covers, with an array of contributors providing exciting new edits that adhere to that avant garde 90s spirit. Each story is special in its own way, but famed street photographer Nick Turpin providing his first fashion work, shooting Neelam Johal in a museum setting is a bonafide moment.

Spotlight On: Weir Diary

July 24th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Though he’s known for putting together some of the most flawless casts imaginable — see Viktor & Rolf‘s stunning lineup of top tier beauties, and the eclectic group of worldly gents he selected for Berluti – casting director Andrew Weir still finds time to capture the biz’s most beautiful faces in his candid blog, Weir Diary. Getting to the heart of his subjects with honest snapshots that capture them looking unguarded and beautiful, Weir has created an intimate look at fashion from an insider perspective.

Culture Pop : Balenciaga, CdG & Coachella

April 16th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

BALENCIAGA, THE COLLECTOR

Museums are kicking their fashion focus into overdrive with several choice exhibits happening at once. At Paris’ Musee Galliera two incredible fashion retrospectives are happening, the first looks back on the career and life of Cristobal Balenciaga via his couture fashions and personal collections. Even the masters draw inspiration from somewhere and some of the pieces featured date back to as far as 1730. The fascinating exhibit also explores the designer’s one of a kind pieces made for friends and contemporaries like Elsa Schiaparelli.

COMME des GARCONS – BUBBLELICIOUS

From the past to the future – the museum also offers a unique look at the current Comme des Garcons collection, all white and encapsulated in giant bubbles. Viewing just off the runway designs as works of art isn’t hard when the designs come from as idiosyncratic and skilled a creator as Rei Kawakubo. Take a look at Interview magazine’s preview of the event.

NAOMI REMEMBERS HERB

A decade after his death and Herb Ritts’ work still sets the standard for beautiful fashion imagery. Naomi Campbell remembers Herb and her work with him in a special interview with Time and even recounts the creation of that now legendary supermodel shot. Angelinos can catch the Getty Museum’s retrospective of Ritts’ photography from now until August.

COACHELLA’S CATWALKS

Just in case you haven’t maxed out on Coachella coverage, take a look at stylish shots from Vogue & Bazaar taken by David X. Prutting and Mr. Newton respectively. None of the fashionistas featured commit the crimes noted in Buzz Feed’s hilarious send up of music festival fashion cliches.
