Karmen Chameleon

February 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Are we in the midst of a Karmen Pedaru moment? All signs point to yes; as the lithe Estonian burns up the runways of Milan we’re treated to several stunning new covers of Karmen this month. The Pedaru visage is featured on some of the coolest magazines in existence and each image provides its own creative take on her appeal.

As one of the ten top model covers of The Last Magazine, Karmen exudes sensuality in Lachlan Bailey (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists)’s sultry black and white shot. On Flair‘s cover Karmen provides an elegant ease that Katja Rahlwes (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) captures beautifully. That said, the most unexpected cover shot has to be i-D Magazine‘s trippy Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) image that comes complete with a gif party.

January 10th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Stunning S/S campaigns keep coming in, take a look at some of the best ads to hit magazines of late.


BALENCIAGA

Nicolas Ghesquiere (Designer) | Steven Meisel (Photographer) |  Kirstin LiljegrenKremi Otashliyska & Sam Rollinson (Models)

The final Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga collection is given the royal treatment in Steven Meisel‘s elegant new campaign for the luxe brand. Kirstin LiljegrenKremi Otashliyska and Sam Rollinson star in the simple black and white images, which focus on the power of the clothing rather than elaborate set ups or outlandish imagery.


FENDI

Karl Lagerfeld ( Designer & Photographer) | Saskia de Brauw & Kati Nescher (Models)

Karl Lagerfeld shoots the dream team of Kati Nescher and Saskia de Brauw in Fendi’s colorful ads. With accessories serving as a focal point alongside the the vibrant geometric patterns of the S/S collection, Lagerfeld’s shots are a less is more take on Fendi’s opulent glamour.


CHLOE

Clare Waight-Keller (Designer) | Glen Luchford (Photographer) | Camille Bidault Waddington (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Garren (Hair Stylist) | Aaron de Mey (Makeup Artist) | Anatole Rainey (Manicurist) | Fabien Baron (Art Director) | Michelle Lee for KCD (Casting Director) | Caroline Brasch NielsenNadja BenderRosie Tapner & Tilda Lindstam (Models)

 The ultimate cool girls gathering, Caroline Brasch NielsenNadja BenderRosie Tapner and Tilda Lindstam hanging out in head to toe Chloe looking like extras from an especially chic episode of Girls.


GUCCI

Frida Gianinni (Designer) | Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Photographers) | Karmen Pedaru & Anja Rubik (Models)

Karmen, Anja, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott - when you have all that, nothing more is needed.


JIL SANDER
Jil Sander (Designer) | David Sims (Photographer) | Juliane Grüner and Otto Lotz (Models)

Jil is back! With Sander back at the helm of her eponymous line, it is only natural that the S/S 13 campaign would have a completely different look and feel from what we’ve seen from the brand of late. David Sims shoots futuristic ad images that are completely in line with the streamlined Sander vibe, while Juliane Grüner and Otto Lotz perfectly embody the effortless chic of Sander’s aesthetic.


DIOR

Raf Simons (Designer) | Willy Vanderperre (Photographer) | Olivier Rizzo (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Anthony Turner (Hair Stylist) | Aaron de Mey (Makeup Artist) | Piers Hanmer (Set Designer) | Anna Martynova, Daiane Conterato, Marie Piovesan, Nicole Pollard, Daria Strokous (Models)

We expect nothing less than the pinacle of elegance from fashion’s most storied house and Willy Vanderperre (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) delivers with a series of campaign images that effortlessly capture Raf Simons’ minimalist vision for Dior. The new look (pun intended) of the campaign feels refreshing and completely in line with the collection.

Resort Hits

June 8th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Another season, another set of wearable designs for resort, even if you aren’t headed to your summer house for a seasonal stopover you’re sure to find something you like. Here’s what we’ve been loving from Resort so far – be sure to tell us your favorites in the comments!

BALENCIAGA
Pictured on Liya Kebede, Marte Mei van Haaster & Meghan Collison

Ballet inspired minimalism, that offers a welcome respite from the 80s infused disco vibe that Ghesquière has been giving us lately. A simple, elegant and dare we say it – pretty, collection that feels new. Plus, it goes without saying that those slate & coral heels are set to become an editorial (and street style) sensation.

GUCCI
Pictured on Bette Franke, Karmen Pedaru & Nadja Bender

The Gucci flora print is iconic and Frida has always found interesting ways of incorporating it into her designs. The Resort collection offers a colorful and feminine take on the Gucci standards and even boasts a little restraint – there is only one pastel suit!

DEREK LAM
Pictured on Monika Sawicka & Ava Smith

We admit that we don’t quite see the Coming to America inspiration, but we’re happy that Derek Lam looked to a film that hasn’t been run into the ground for inspiration. All we see is clean, classic American design with a modern twist and really we can’t complain about that.

The Look of Hans Feurer

May 24th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

As fashion’s foremost purveyor of nomad chic, Hans Feurer‘s images are unmistakable. Though his body of work is diverse, the pictures that stand out most tend to feature a series of Feurer signatures; layered undone styling, exotic locations and bold tribal makeup. Look at his latest stories for Vogue Paris and Vogue Japan respectively and you’ll see all the trademarks of his aesthetic. VP’s Karmen Pedaru story goes for a harder edge, while his images of Constance Jablonski are all about highlighting her refined beauty, but both stories hinge on variations of the same idea. Take a glimpse back at Feurer’s work over the years and see how he developed the style he’s now known for.

Abstract Elegance

Karmen Pedaru can go from 60s mod to futuristic femme fatale in the blink of an eye and in Greg Kadel‘s sleek story for Numero she does. Adorned with flowers and wearing a host of outlandish outfits, Pedaru displays the versatility and innate elegance she’s become known for within the industry. Looking lean and toned in looks from Lanvin and Pucci, Karmen gives you everything.

Michael’s Mystique

September 1st, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Michael Kors has a thing for elegant Estonians: for years Carmen Kass reigned supreme as the glamorous face of the megabrand, only to pass the torch to the equally alluring Karmen Pedaru. In Interview‘s September issue Mikael Jansson and Karl Templer showcase the brand’s fall looks in the sexiest possible way, with glimpses of skin and a sleek shift in perspective. The upward angle used in Jansson’s images makes Karmen look like a goddess and the monochromatic looks created by Templer make Kors’sportswear look refreshing.

A team of fashion’s most innovative talents join forces for Interview‘s stylish take on the season’s tough, punk inspired looks. Aaron de Mey and Eugene Souleiman transform Karmen into a rebel with hair and makeup, but the devil may care attitude that makes the story is all her own.
