First Look: Document No. 4

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: Grey Magazine

October 7th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The always stylish Grey Magazine (Italy), is an eclectic blend of art, fashion, literature that stands out from the pack. To call the oversized hardcover a glossy would undersell its appeal and diminish its lasting beauty. Each issue is a keepsake and for the Autumn / winter edition the biannual features a host of striking content and enough covers to appease even the most insatiable fashion addict. From classic actress Charlotte Rampling striking a moody pose, to a Dalmatian pictured alongside one of Louis Vuitton’s signature handbags, each image is chic but in an irreverent way. Model fans will appreciate the stylish images of Jourdan Dunn and a special appearance by Missy Rayder and her gorgeous family.

Double Vision: Clear Winner

March 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Transparency was all over the S/S13 runways and as the season draws closer it seems fitting to explore one of its dominant trends. The house whose designs exemplified the look was VALENTINO, where designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli showed a variety of pieces that utilized transparency expertly, revealing skin but keeping the demure sophistication the brand has become known for. Whether they were dazzling with delicate embroidery, or creating a sublime showcase for the body via cutouts, the duo set the standard for diaphanous dressing.

One piece in particular took the look to its logical endpoint and dazzled with its whimsical cheekiness. The PVC trenchcoat embellished with the line’s signature rockstuds has become an editorial favorite, with stylists providing their own take on the Valentino look. The trench lends itself to a myriad of different interpretations and stylists did not disappoint, creating a variety of looks that range from sensual, to avant-garde. When a garment can go from the all out sexy of Missy Rayder‘s powerful image in Numero, to the easy cool on the back of Angela Lindvall it more than proves its versatility.

Dali Darling!

March 1st, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Salvador Dali’s influence can be felt throughout March’s Vogue Paris, especially in Mikael Jansson‘s striking story featuring Missy Rayder and Arizona Muse. The over the top visual treat, styled perfectly by Giovanna Battaglia, is a maximalist ode to beauty that captures the essence of the master’s surreal perspective.

Visual Branding

August 13th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Nothing conveys the identity of a brand quite like its advertising and more and more mainstream fashion brands are attempting to tweak their image via campaigns that utilize fashion’s biggest powerplayers. Case in point, the F/W campaign for conservative brand, Talbots features the edgy pairing of Linda Evangelista and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Meanwhile Jones New York enlists Annie Leibovitz and a slew of top names like Hilary Rhoda, Jessica Stam, Hana Soukupova, Jacquetta Wheeler, Du Juan, Yasmin WarsameAminata Niaria and Ujjwala Raut for their ads. Not to be left in the dust, mall staple Esprit enlists Coco Rocha for its collection ads and Anne Vyalitsyna, Du Juan and Missy Rayder by Mariano Vivanco for the mainline.

The addition of a familiar (and fashionable) face can add a layer of cool to a brand’s image, but does the trick work? Did any of these ads enhance your opinion of the labels in question? Tell us.

Esprit chose top models like Coco, Missy, Du & Anne V for both its lines

Dansk‘s vision for fall is minimal, modern and utterly sleek, their September cover by Henrik Bulow features Caroline Brasch Nielsen, looking icy in a slate grey shift by Danish label Spon Diogo. The barely there tagline of ‘modesty’ hints at an unostentatious and stripped down look, but the images inside are just as lush and vibrant as we’ve come to expect from Dansk; Charlie France‘s elegant shoot with Lowe Seger and Missy Rayder‘s sexy pics styled by Joanne Blades, being standouts.
