Deep Dark

March 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Who better to explore the gothic side of fashion than the illustrious team of Craig McDean, Karl Templer and Sasha Pivovarova. With an eye for the atypical and a brooding ferocity that works it’s way into every image, the team creates an expressive vision with a dark twist in the pages of Interview Magazine. With pieces from Alexander McQueenLouis Vuitton and Tom Ford the story focuses on larger than life fashion, rejecting the convention that Spring stories need to be light, bright and filled with saccharine florals. With an inky black coif courtesy of Orlando Pita and understated makeup by Diane Kendal, Sasha is appropriately spooky and adds flair to McDean’s dramatic images.

McQueen Kate

January 27th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Kate Moss and the house of McQueen finally join forces with an arresting spring campaign by Steven Klein. Utilizing his signature surreal style, Klein creates a gritty world that fits beautifully with the collection’s warrior woman aesthetic. With Pascal Dangin of KiDS providing creative direction, provides a captivating showcase for Kate and the accompanying film adds another dimension to the story. With acid toned hair and glossy makeup the modeling vet is almost unrecognizable, but there’s no mistaking that face. Look closely at Klein’s shots and you’ll even see a miniature Kate – in the form of a pin covered voodoo doll.

March 13th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The world of beekeeping might seem like an unusual choice of subject matter for a fashion editorial, but in the capable hands of photographer Will Davidson it makes for a compelling and beautiful story. Styled by Jillian Davison and featuring an array of feminine designs from Miu Miu, Rochas, Dior and of course Alexander McQueen, the Vogue Australia images tell a romantic tale with plenty of visual oomph. Models Cassi Van Den Dungen and Lucas Pittaway, look resplendent in Davidson’s images, while the combo of cutting-edge clothes and atmospheric mood make for an especially memorable series.

Blast from the Past: Claude Montana

November 9th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Looking back on the season that was and some of the runway proportion plays, we started to think back to the larger than life silhouettes of the 1980s. Back when a shoulder pad was de rigueur you couldn’t open up a fashion magazine without seeing the incredible designs of Claude Montana. Focusing on exquisite construction, luxurious materials and of course shape, Montana’s eponymous label flourished from 1979 until 1997, and for two years in the early nineties he even held down the reigns at Lanvin and yes there was life before Alber.

The amount of designers who namecheck Montana as an inspiration is staggering, the late Alexander McQueen cited him as a primary influence and numerous others owe a great deal to Montana’s inventive spirit. Take a trip back to the past with a glimpse at some incredible House of Montana pieces, as worn by top models of the era. The clothes may be over 20 years old, but notice how relevant and modern they still seem – the ruffled skirt on the red suit wouldn’t seem out of place on this season’s Balenciaga runway, the oversized shearling jacket would work with today’s Rag & Bone and that dramatic white column for Lanvin, could appear on any red carpet today and be completely refreshing.

The modeling enigma goes west in Kadel’s cinematic editorial. Wearing the season’s finery with unmatched flair, Malgosia sports a array of key looks – none of which fall into cowboy cliche. The Havana Laffitte selected pieces, range from space age Alexander McQueen, to austere Celine, but each look comes alive in the story and accompanying video – watch on

McQueen’s Acid Trip

July 24th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

When we think of David Sims we think of stark black and white portraits, an avant garde take on minimalism, a thousand American Vogue studio stories featuring Raquel Zimmermann and countless other familiar Sims favorites. Not one to rest on his laurels, Sims goes off in a wildly psychedelic direction for Alexander McQueen‘s campaign film featuring Suvi Koponen. Where the campaign was all about pop colors and those exquisite fall looks – complete with iconic visor shades – the video plays out like a kinetic video game. With all the flashing lights and mind bending moments it is a little hard to take in the clothes, but Sims certainly knows how to get your attention.
