The Runaways

February 9th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Sebastian Kim and (Management + Artists) Gro Curtis take to the streets with a gritty story for HEROINE Magazine that sees Emmy Rappe and Lina Berg as a pair of teenage vagabonds clad in Balenciaga and Maison Martin Margiela. The pair walks through deserted woods and along the edge of suburban towns all while wearing a pared down selection of pieces from luxurious labels. Most kids don’t skip town in Alexander Wang and Opening Ceremony, but Curtis’ skillful styling and Kim’s naturalistic images make the concept feel authentic.

Alexander Wang’s Wild Ride

January 21st, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

The latest campaign for Alexander Wang is bright, colorful and filled with covetable clothes, but it works mainly because the images ring true. Is there any designer more likely to charter a party bus and rave across New York with a bevy of models?
Steven Klein (Art Partner) vibrant ads take the sneaker-centric spring collection and reimagine it as a rollicking good time complete with neon colors and glimpses of the Manhattan skyline peeking out from the bus’ open roof. Pascal Dangin‘s skillful art direction keeps the campaign’s LED imagery and flashing lights from ever seeming chaotic, while Karl Templer‘s styling keeps the focus firmly on those killer clothes. Models Sarah BrannonAnna EwersBinx WaltonDylan XueLexi Boling and Vanessa Moody are all along for the party, making each photo seem like an expression of youthful jubilance.

Break the Internet

December 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Leave it to Alexander Wang and Steven Klein (Art Partner) to take us back to the days when a denim ad could cause an international incident. If fashion advertising has seemed tame in recent years, the sight of a stripped down Anna Ewers sporting nothing more than a pair of inky blue Wang jeans pooled around her ankles is sure to set things right. With a provocative perspective and fearless take on female sensuality, Klein creates instantly an instant classic of in your face advertising that is sure to be hotly debated.

Wang Takes No Prisoners!

July 29th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Alexander Wang knows how to hold your attention and the designer always manages to surprise with his provocative campaigns. For fall Wang has got things on lockdown – literally. Citing the idea of “survival mode” as an inspiration Wang and Steven Klein (Art Partner) serve up women’s prison imagery with a fashion twist. Anna EwersVanessa MoodyLexi BolingKatlin Aas and Kat Hessen sport the utilitarian fall collection as they’re plunged into a world of strict rules, strip searches and  confinement. With Karl Templer styling you’re not going to see any orange jumpsuits and the girls look exceptional even as they impatiently await sentencing. All in all the ads mesh perfectly with the label’s spirit of youthful rebellion and provide the season’s most in-your-face campaign moment via that extreme on the floor shot.

Goodman rarely grants interviews so the recounting of her career, from her beginnings as a model to her tenure as fashion director is a wonderful treat for readers. Fashion historians will find themselves enthralled by the interview, while lovers of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin’s photography are sure to find themselves drawn in by their photos of Goodman in her signature black turtleneck and sleek blonde hair.

Editorially the issue is filled with fresh content from the very best contributors, Lara Stone features in stark shots by Erik Torstensson, accompanied by a lengthy interview that details her ascent to supermodel status. Joan Smalls pumps iron in an adrenaline filled story by Lachlan Bailey (Management + Artists), Freja Beha Erichsen models Alexander Wang’s latest and Jamie Bochert guides readers through a day in her life comic book style.
