Fashion Fairy Tales

February 12th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

For the Spring 2014 edition, CR Fashion Book is all about Fairy Tales, and Disney better watch out. Per usual, Issue 4 features dual covers, two fashion-forward updates of childhood fantasies shot by Sebastian Faena and Bruce Weber.

Dressing up Spielberg’ classic film, CR’s “E.T.” revisits the 1982 blockbuster with Lindsey Wixson in the role of Gertie (with much better clothes, of course). Photographer  Sebastian Faena brings his trademark for cinematic imagery to iconic scenes pulled from the original film, including the bicycle flying over the moon and E.T.’s glowing fingertips. Magda Laguinge and male model Abel Van Oeveren join Lindsey in showcasing Spring fashions from Prada, Miu Miu, and Proenza Schouler. /

For Bruce Webers take on “Fairy Tales,” CR tapped newcomer and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills offspring Gigi Hadid to star in a hippie-style story. Combining wilderness whimsy with pieces from Givenchy, Giorgio Armani, and Hermès, Weber’s story spotlights Carine Roitfeld’s penchant for striking the perfect balance of hi-lo fashion. Playful, sensual, and super cool, this cover story looks like a perfect spring daydream.

Unexpected Pleasures

January 22nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Interview Germany continues its tradition of excellence with two new fashion stories that go for the unexpected. Cover star Lindsey Wixson turns in a stellar performance in Sebastian Faena‘s sensual story inspired by the films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder and filled with the same thrilling, avant-garde energy as his work (with set design by Jesse Kaufmann). Julia von Boehm styles Wixson and Jon Kortajarena in dramatic looks that echo the decadent costumes of movies like Lola. 

Charlotte Wales and Clare Byrne provide a different kind of surprise with a spirited denim editorial focused on the very best in blue jeans. The fresh-faced cast was culled directly from New York high schools, providing a unique change of pace and a distinctive set of teen beauties.

CHECKER CHIC

We’ve been seeing a lot of Marc Jacobs’ mod influenced collection for Louis Vuitton, so it is no surprised to see it showing up on the covers of two stylish publications this month. Numero‘s sleek image by Sebastian Kim gives you two sides of of Nadja Bender, while Vogue Japan offers a girlish take on Jacobs’ designs with a coquettish image of Lindsey Wixson by Patrick Demarchelier. Both pictures present a compelling fashion moment, so it really boils down to whether you prefer your Vuitton girl seductive, or syrupy sweet.

NADJA ON NUMERO OR LINDSEY ON VOGUE JAPAN – WHICH VERSION OF VUITTON DO YOU PREFER?


TEASER PLEASER

Dansk returns with two images designed to whet readers’ appetites for more of the famed Danish magazine’s blend of art and fashion. Nadja Bender shows up again (there isn’t a magazine you won’t find Nadja in these days) looking effortlessly cool in Hasse Nielsen‘s black and white shot, but the image that grabs our attention is that of the aptly named Adonis Bosso taken by Raf Stahelin. Dressed in a debonair fedora and head to metallics, Bosso cuts an impressive figure – we can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

NADJA OR ADONIS – WHICH DANSK TEASER CATCHES YOUR EYE?


BRAZILIAN BONUS!

Giampaolo Sgura and Anna Dello Russo are at it again! This time the duo creates four wildly different covers for Vogue Brasil featuring Magdalena FrackowiakIzabel GoulartBette Franke and Mirte Maas. Each cover captures a completely different mood within the sexy & chic theme: from the all out glamour of Magda’s shot, Mirte’s full on Dello Russo eclecticism, Izabel’s vibrant  cover image and the purity of Bette’s Prada collection image. Each cover has its merits, but we can’t help but think that Bette’s austere Miuccia madness feels freshest.

BETTE? IZABEL? MAGDALENA? MIRTE? WHICH VOGUE BRAZIL COVER GETS YOUR VOTE?

Beauty Rebel

August 20th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

We love a magazine with a distinctive point of view and brand new biannual Beauty Rebel, is as distinctive as it gets. With a focus on all things beauty and the endless allure of cosmetics, stunning makeup and amazing hair, the glossy rejects overly photoshopped imagery in favor of the glamour of the 70s, 80s and even the 90s supermodel era. Who better to appear on the cover than ultimate fashion rebel, Daphne Guinness, who pays tribute to another legend, the late, great Hedy Lamarr.

Inside an array of beauty centric content from behind the scenes shots of top models, to fresh editorials featuring inventive hair and makeup is certain to delight.

Campaign Confidential

July 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The ads keep on coming, check out a few more of our faves from the season – take a look back at our previous campaign favorites post too.

Balenciaga

While we can’t imagine either Nicolas Ghesquière or Steven Meisel spending a lazy weekend at the shore, the Balenciaga campaign is set in such an idyll. Fresh faces Anniek KortleveLinn ArvidssonHirschy HirschfelderJulier BuggeJuliet Ingleby and Rosie Tapner lay out on the dunes in those eccentric looks from F/W.

Chanel

Simple, clean and led by a stellar cast, Chanel’s fresh ads feature Kati Nescher, Lindsey Wixson & Cora Emmanuel as styled by Carine Roitfeld. Naturally, Karl Lagerfeld is behind the camera – which depending on your perspective you either love or hate, that said the casting on this is flaw free.

Dolce & Gabbana

A taste of Italian nostalgia shot by Giampaolo Sgura and featuring Monica Bellucci, Bianca Balti and Bianca Brandolini – each image feels like a still from a Pasolini film.

Valentino

Valentino once again gives us a vision of pure class from the iconic Deborah Turbeville. Elegantly color coordinated looks on Jac JagaciakCaroline Brasch Nielsen and Frida Gustavsson – what’s not to love?

Fendi

When you have Joan Smalls and Karl Lagerfeld you don’t really need much else. With the natural setting and powerful poses, this new ads remind us a bit of Anja Rubik‘s S/S 10 ads for the luxe line.
