Collaborative Arts

July 26th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Notice how many of F/Ws fashion ads involve collaborations with contemporary artists? Stella McCartney enlists artist Barry Reigate to illustrate the otherwise minimalist ads starring Natalia Vodianova and shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott , the cartoonish style fits with McCartney’s quirky image and is slightly reminiscent of last seasons Disneyfied ads with Sigrid Agren.

Bottega Venetta has Robert Longo all but recreate the look of his classic ‘Men In Cities’ series, only with Alla Kostromichova and Terron Wood doing all the movements.

Not to be outdone, Missoni goes all out with a mini-film by experimental filmmaker, Kenneth Anger; the bold and trippy clip (watch it in its entirety here) features Margherita Missoni and a host of others.

Man Oh Man

July 16th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Let’s not forget some of our favorite men coming out this fall. Man of the season Oleg Antosik cuts a striking figure for cK Calvin Klein by Fabien Baron. The always in demand Sean O’Pry headlines a stellar and sophisticated cast of Mathias Bergh, Jake Davies and hot newcomer Corey Baptiste in a debonair DKNY Men campaign by Nathaniel Goldberg. You’ll be seeing much more of Nikola Jovanovic come fall, here’s a classic image of him by Emilio Tini for Gianfranco Ferre Eyewear. Ian O’Brien has been a recent editorial favorite; he breaks out here this season with his first major campaign for Marc by Marc Jacobs by perennial MJ lensman, Juergen Teller. Terron Wood showcases his versatility and dynamic moves for artist/director Robert Longo‘s turbulent Bottega Veneta campaign. All so different yet so marvelous. What catches your eye the most?

Yes Marie-Amelie Sauve is genius… Sans Artifice agrees too.

Here’s a link to Golden Globe winner, Mo’Nique who dedicates her award to victims of child abuse. “”The number of victims who never reveal their secret or who wait many years to do so is very high. This is regrettable because the longer they wait to reveal the abuse, the harder and more enduring the consequences will be.”

Thriller!

March 10th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

America’s obsession with celebrity has lead us down many peculiar paths – maps to stars homes, Liberace museums, every issue of US Weekly ever – the list goes on and on. No manifestation of this fixation is more unusual than the proud tradition of wax figurines. Admit it – it’s a little creepy to pose next to a life sized replica of your favorite star. The thrill is cheesy and fleeting but how many of us have payed a visit to Madame Tussauds?

Terry Richardson gets the highly tacky, insanely addictive pleasure of such campy mainstays and with Anna Selezneva by his side he brings the joy to life for V. The likenesses of Michael Jackson, Johnny Depp and Madonna all make special appearances as Anna poses with a look of absolute glee.

The Men of Hercules

September 19th, 2008 |Posted by Betty

Herculean men indeed! You have your original male supermodel Mr. Marcus Schenkenberg, current top models Tyson Ballou and Andres Segura and up and comer Terron Wood. The mysterious man in the shades? We suspect it might be Marlon Teixeira, former MOTW who is the new man of the hour. As they say, “You better WORK!”
