Fashion Generation

July 22nd, 2013 |Posted by models.com

Karlie Kloss is joined by electronic music duo Daft Punk in a playful photo shoot for August’s American Vogue. In “All-Ages Show”, Tabitha Simmons styles Kloss for a night out on the town in trendy looks for every age, whether you’re 20-something or 60-something. The “Get Lucky” musical duo, looking robotically dapper, stand alongside Kloss, where Kloss’s signature elegance shines through as per usual. The pairing of the young model and electronic duo may seem odd to some, but it most definitely works, delivering an editorial of fabulous fall fashions for every generation.

Movie Moment

February 4th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

We’ve all seen enough fashion films featuring slow motion models whose hair blows elegantly in the wind and though there is nothing wrong with that per se, the most engaging campaign movies we’re seeing this year break from the tried and true formulas. Going for over the top humour, cinematic imagery or full on designer commentary, these brand new campaigns excite and delight.

T BY ALEXANDER WANG S/S 13

We last saw Anjelah Johnson’s Bon Qui Qui character on old episodes of Mad TV, but she’s back and has upgraded from her old job at King Burger. Starring as a sales associate at Wang’s trendy Soho boutique, Bon Qui Qui manages to insult everyone from Alessandra Ambrosio to A$AP Rocky with her in your face brand of customer service. For anyone who has ever worked retail, or had an especially crazy shopping experience this clip will make you crack a smile.


CALVIN KLEIN PRESENTS PROVOCATIONS

Calvin Klein has a long history of memorable advertisements that push boundaries with a strong dose of sex appeal and their latest fashion film, Provocations adds to their oeuvre with a slick Fabien Baron helmed vision of minimalist eroticism. Starring actor, Alexander Skarsgard and Suvi Koponen, the avant garde ad provides some truly remarkable imagery.


LANVIN S/S13

Alber Elbaz is one of fashion’s true characters, so it is great to see the Lanvin campaign inject some of the designer’s personality into the mix with Elbaz providing running commentary on the Steven Meisel images of Christian GarciaDaria StrokousKarlie KlossKristoffer HasslevallMichael Lange and Saskia de Brauw. Alber’s enthusiasm is downright contagious – we wouldn’t mind hearing his commentary on every Lanvin video from here on!

The Look of Ryan McGinley

December 10th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Ryan McGinley‘s evolution from downtown documentarian, to creator of slick fashion imagery has been one of the most interesting progressions in recent memory. The worlds of art photography and fashion photography have always had a bit of overlap, but in recent years the lines have blurred, with talented photographers moving between boundaries with ease and creating work that satisfies the tenants of either style. McGinley has always had a knack for capturing his subjects at their most unfiltered, whether that means a candid snap of a skateboarder, a hedonistic nude shot in the upstate wilds, or an elegant portrait of a top model or celebrity. There is always something unguarded and fresh about his images that makes them memorable and sets them apart. The dreamy scenarios and saturated colors that dominate his fashion work, make his pictures among the most compelling contributions to magazines of late. Take a look back through is work and see why we’re wild for the McGinley take on things.

Double Vision: Celine

November 28th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one designer who knows how to get women (and men) excited it is Phoebe Philo and her continued success at Celine is a testament to her ability to tap into the pulse of what women want. For F/W Philo went in a graphic direction, with primary shades, bold color blocking and a mixes of texture, from matte leather to plush fur. One of the most editorially beloved pieces from the Celine collection was the Geometric Intarsia Sweater, a playful clash of mink and leather that succinctly merged the essence of the entire collection into a single item. If another designer were to throw together that many things on one top it might seem overwrought, or ridiculous but Phoebe Philo keeps the look minimal.

Most stylists didn’t stray too far from that ideal, pairing the sweaters with either the runway approved striped trousers, or an equally understated crisp white skirt. Most of the time what stands out are the accessories and add ons, be they gleaming silver cuffs, avant garde headgear or the label’s coveted Trapeze Bag. Take a look at the way in which several different teams interpreted the Celine look and subsequently the sleek mood of the season.

Double Vision : Dior Couture

October 18th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion shows are well and good, but the true test of a collection’s impact is often played out in the editorial pages. When you have multiple editors reaching for the same pieces over and over again you know a designer has hit a nerve. Even when the styling itself isn’t that noticeably different between images, there are always key changes in presentation that separate fashion stories; whether it is the model choice, the manner in which the photographer chose to present the garment, or even something as simple as color vs. black and white, each team puts its own special stamp on things. Take a look at the way in which different magazines have interpreted two of the most popular pieces within the collection and let us know who you think pulled it off best.

Super Modern

June 19th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

It is not every day you see fashion models on the cover of a major American magazine. Actors, musicians and even omnipresent reality stars have usurped models on US mag covers and few publications understand that the general public might be interested in seeing someone fashionable and beautiful on their glossies, instead of just getting a glimpse of the latest celeb with a movie to pimp.

As a consumate leader W Magazine always goes off the beaten path and creates stunning imagery – case in point, the latest covers shot by Steven Meisel and starring budding supers Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss. The larger than life hair by Oribe, the glowing skin courtesy of Pat McGrath and stunning styling by Edward Enninful, it all combines to create a look that is bold and larger than life – echoing the classic Avedon images of of the original supers from years past. Add to this a charming article that show’s both young women are more than just pretty faces and you have the makings of a must buy issue.
