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.

Past Meets Present: The Mod Moment

January 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

By its very nature, fashion is in a constant state of change, but the industry has a way of rehashing the past every few seasons with collections that draw inspiration from key moments in fashion’s history.  Nostalgia was the predominant fashion mode of the aughts, and it saw  designers revisiting everything from 1920s flapper fixtures, to ’80s powerdressing and (gasp) ’90s grunge redux. We may have just entered into 2013, but when it comes to manufacturing clothing that looks awfully similar to styles that could have been worn generations earlier, designers show no signs of stopping.

Case in point, S/S 13’s mod moment, which saw a wealth of graphic prints invading the runway. Checks, stripes, and houndstooth patterns  made appearances on the runways of labels like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana, offering a pleasant alternative to spring’s tried-and-true florals and providing a bit of deja vu. Granted, these design elements are timeless, but fans of ’60s style will recognize the cuts and patterns that make up these new designs as the hallmarks of mod innovators. Take a look at  the work of Pierre Cardin, Mary Quant, André Courrèges, and Ossie Clark,  and you can’t help but see where Marc Jacobs and co. took their lead from.

With the very same designs getting major play in the pages of this month’s magazines, editors have been showcasing these looks in a variety of ways. Most choose to play up the retro appeal inherent in these collections by creating stories reminiscent of days past: what says ’60s more than an angular Vidal Sasson bob or an oversized bouffant? Others focus in on the graphic element, shooting the pieces against white backdrops and playing up the contrast.

Charlotte’s Web

November 14th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Capturing the essence of Charlotte Rampling is not an easy task. The cinema legend’s allure is all about subtlety: she’s sexy but never sleazy, aloof but never cold. Helmut Newton encapsulated all these attributes perfectly in his famous photos 70s of the iconic beauty and now Giampaolo Sgura pays tribute to those images in Antidote Magazine. The baby-faced Anna de Rijk might not be the first name you think of when it comes to seduction, but with her cascading dark hair and piercing blue eyes she pulls off the Rampling look nicely. Added bonus, Géraldine Saglio‘s styling focuses on silk stockings and sky high heels, keeping with Antidote’s shoe fetish theme.

Dressed Up or Down

July 20th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Stylist Géraldine Saglio shows her skill with two separate stories in Vogue Paris starring the versatile Anna Selezneva. Pulling off the luxurious vixen look with aplomb on one page, then switching to a youthful preppy look on the next takes skill and Anna handles it well. The selection of Harry Winston and Tiffany & Co. diamonds certainly helps, that and all the gorgeous Isabel Marant.

The Luscious Miss Lily

May 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Oh Lily Donaldson, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways!
We’ve watched Lily blossom from ingenue to bombshell and no matter the story she manages to bring a unique elegance to her images. Check her out on the cover of Muse Magazine, looking sensational in a shot by Matt Irwin. Dressed in looks from Prada, Hermes and Vuitton chosen by stylist Darcy Backlar, Lily looks as good as ever. Nicolas Jurnjack‘s glamazon hair and Adrien Pinault‘s understated makeup serve to highlight Lily’s beauty and we’re loving Irwin’s high gloss imagery.
