Industrious

February 3rd, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Meisel plays with various styles for his Vogue Italia covers, but many of the best have a cinematic quality that makes them appear like stills from a motion picture. Meisel’s photography is energetic, richly detailed and often seems ready to start moving the moment some unseen director yells “Action!” The February cover of VI is a prime example of this a Dolce & Gabbana clad Lexi Boling may be the first thing to grab your attention, but each detail adds to the story. The sewing machines in the background, Mary Howard‘s comprehensive set design and even the blur of men moving all around Lexi. It all makes for a stunning tribute to fashion workers anchored by Marie-Amélie Sauvé styling, Pat McGrath doing makeup and Jimmy Paul handling hair.

Past, Present, Future

December 8th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Meisel delves into modern bohemia with a striking December cover for Vogue Italia starring Jamie Bochert and Valerija Kelava. Styled by Marie-Amélie Sauvé, in floppy hats and folksy prints the duo embodies the free spirited days of yesteryear while sporting some of the latest fashions around. Inside the issue they’re joined by Hollie May Saker, Gabriel Marques, Harmony Boucher, Jackie Sanchez, Olivier John Rodgers, Olympia Campbell, Steffy Argelich and Will Lewis for an appealing series of shots that look culled from a late sixties scrapbook. Meisel ditches his sleek studio style in favor of soft, dreamy images mixed in with still life images by artist & filmmaker, Benn Northover.

Jamie & Valerija may have snagged the cover, but the model who steals the show is the adorable August Kruse Templer, who makes his Vogue Italia debut alongside proud mom Christina Kruse.

Mix + Match

April 1st, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

In fashion, a little daring goes a long way. Such is the case in this artful shoot from Jamie Hawkesworth, who brings his trademark eye for stark yet striking imagery to the pages of W’s April 2014 issue. Featuring Marine Deleeuw, Ashleigh Good, Harleth Kuusik, and Linn Arvidsson, Hawkesworth’s latest demonstrates the undeniable cool of fashion-forward contrasts. Combining Phoebe Philo’s Céline brushstrokes and Raf Simons’ “Trans Dior” prints with pieces by Gucci, Max Mara, and Vera Wang, Marie-Amélie Sauvé’s dynamic styling speaks for itself.

Laundry Service

August 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

As some of the most divisive and easily recognizable pieces of the fall/winter season, Céline‘s bold plaid prints have become a focal point in editorials the past few months. Whether you love the red and blue tartan, or find they resemble the ubiquitous laundry bags found at your local bodega it is impossible to deny their presence in the pages of fashion glossies. Though most stylists don’t stray too far from the runway interpretation of the look, Philo’s creations remain compelling, especially when juxtaposed with an interesting background or unique set. In Steven Meisel‘s Vogue Italia shots they are pit against a swirling arm chair by designer Tord Boontje and the pairing brings out the best of both statement pieces. Likewise the seeing the Celine plaid opposite Stella McCartney‘s version of the same in Vogue Russia provides a concise overview of one of fall’s key trends. Naturally, there are also moments when all you need is a great model and a few more pieces from the collection, case in point Tao Okamoto‘s new cover of Vogue Japan which provides an ideal showcase for Tao and those coveted thigh high boots.
