Ad Network

January 16th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

More fabulous fashion ads keep coming in, take a look at the latest.

TOM FORD

Tom Ford – Designer & Photographer | Orlando Pita – Hair Stylist | Charlotte Tilbury – Makeup Artist |Karlina Caune & Simon Van Meervenne – Models

We can always count on Tom Ford for an epitomized version of modern glamour and his latest campaign delivers with sleek shots by Ford himself of Karlina Caune and Simon Van Meervenne. Playing to his strengths the designer / photographer / director / provocateur creates simple images that focus on those decadent designs. Who needs exotic locations and complicated set ups when you have the beauty of those golden to the knee sandals and fringed shoes! Karlina and Simon look pretty damn good too, both models capture the slightly dangerous and oh so sexy vibe of Ford’s ethos.

 


ALEXANDER WANG


Alexander Wang
 – Designer | Steven Klein – Photographer | Pascal Dangin – Art Director | Malgosia Bela – Model

Given the memorable way Wang presented his S/S collection’s glow in the dark dresses, we were expecting a campaign with flashing lights, or blinding neons from Alexander Wang. Never one to go for the obvious thrill, Wang enlists Steven Klein and Pascal Dangin for an evocative campaign featuring the Malgosia Bela. The beauty of these images lies in the artistic way in which the clothing is presented: with her body painted in white and the stark backdrop, Malgosia looks more like a performance artist than a model. As the Wang label enters into its next stage of development this campaign provides a dynamic and eye-catching brand message.


KENZO

Jean Paul Goude – Photographer | Anthony Turner – Hair Stylist | Aaron de Mey – Makeup Artist | Humberto Leon & Carol Lim – Creative Directors | Jester White & Ming Xi – Models

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Kenzo’s F/W ads by Jean Paul Goude were arresting and upbeat – they even made our best of 2012 list and for S/S the saga continues with Ming Xi and Jester White picking up where things left off. We didn’t think it would be possible, but these ads are even more colorful and kooky than the first set.


AKRIS

Karim Sadli – Photographer | Anthony Turner – Hair Stylist | Hannah Murray – Makeup Artist | Alana Zimmer – Model

Karim Sadli shoots Akris’ understated S/S ads featuring Alana Zimmer. Akris has always been about luxury that whispers instead of shouts and Saldi does an excellent job of communicating that message visually. Albert Kriemler’s elegantly minimal designs look especially beautiful set against the lush green backdrop and Alana is as lovely as ever.


ROBERTO CAVALLI

Roberto Cavalli – Designer | Mario Testino  – Photographer | Marie Chaix – Fashion Editor/Stylist | Sam McKnight – Hair Stylist | Charlotte Tilbury – Makeup Artist | Jack Flanagan – Set Designer | Lorraine Griffin – Manicurist

Roberto Cavalli’s clothes are not for wallflowers, so it makes sense that the S/S campaign features three of the boldest and mostt compelling models around. Isabeli Fontana, Malgosia Bela and Sui He star in Mario Testino‘s kinetic images filled with bold prints, saturated colors and the brand’s signature in your face opulence.

The Biz : Wang Confirmed

Alexander Wang taking the reigns at Balenciaga is a story that will likely dominate the fashion headlines for the next few months. Whether you’re still in mourning after Nicolas Ghesquiere‘ departure, or simply charting the seemingly endless designer shuffle that seems to sum up the current state of flux that permeates the entire industry, this is arguably the most exciting fashion news in a long time. Ever since Cathy Horyn revealed the scoop in her NY Times column the subject has been hotly debated. The one thing everyone can agree on though, is that this begins a new chapter for Balenciaga, one that will determine the brand’s future. We will be waiting with baited breath to see what Wang comes up with for his first Balenciaga collection.

Another exciting new appointment, The Last Magazine‘s Magnus Berger has been named the new creative director of Wall Street Journal’s WSJ magazine. Considering the uniqueness and beauty to be found in every single issue of The Last, we’re expecting big things from WSJ in the coming months.

Karl Lagerfeld never stops, so it is no surprise to find that he’s part of another exciting collaboration. Lagerfeld and Brazilian line Melissa shoes have teamed up for a new global partnership, one where Lagerfeld will design 4 special footwear capsule collections, the first of which will be unveiled in March 2013.

Pre-fall collections are starting to trickle in, with new looks from Belstaff, Helmut Lang and Reed Krakoff.

The line between art and commerce blurs even further with Net-A-Porter set to launch a print magazine, which will surely be as elegant as their online editorials.

To end our news brief on a high and start the week out with some beauty, take a look at Elie Saab‘s latest fashion film, a delightful tour around Paris featuring the brand’s decadent resort collection.

Double Vision : Alexander Wang

November 15th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

As fashion’s current king of downtown cool, Alexander Wang has perfected a look that is both eye-catching and easy going. It isn’t unusual to see Wang’s wares popping up in fashion glossies month after month, but it is interesting to see how his look is interpreted by a variety of talents. One of last season’s most memorable and popular Wang pieces was the fishnet turtleneck, a statement item that adds a touch a mystery to any ensemble. Most stylists didn’t stray too far from the runway vision of this particular look, but every so often the versatility of this staple was showcased via a well-timed change of pace. With the addition of the equally ubiquitous Jil Sander pink overcoat, or a bit of menswear inspired Paul & Joe, the mood shifts completely. That said, the Wang turtleneck looks just as good all by itself, revealing a touch of come-hither skin or adding another layer of sexy to a pop star’s daring repertoire.

Liberty’s Confessions

October 25th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Every season we look forward to Alexander Wang‘s Confessional film series. The artfully directed mini-movies place a spotlight on a noteworthy beauty and allow us to experience the world of Wang from a new perspective. This season’s star, the always engaging Liberty Ross gives a candid look at her career, from her first cover for i-D Magazine, to her stint playing Ozzy Osbourne’s bride on an LP, and of course her memorable trip down Alexander’s runway.

Watching the clip is a treat that gives some insight into Liberty’s life away from the spotlight, and shows you just why Wang’s show is such a model favorite – more than a few girls name-checked the designer when listing their fave moments this season.

The Sharper Image

August 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Far from being simply the icing on the campaign cake, films are becoming one of the primary ways fashion brands communicate with their audience. This season a slew of labels old and new came out with enticing videos to accompany their seasonal imagery. More than just pimping out product these videos create an aspirational vision of the viewpoint behind their respective brands.

PRADA

Miuccia Prada‘s esoteric perspective is one of the primary reason’s why Prada is one of the definitive brands of the last century. Steven Meisel takes that ethos and channels it into a chess-centric and haunting film filled with unanswered questions. The presence of  Vanessa AxenteMagdalena FrackowiakMadison HeadrickElza LuijendijkIselin Steiro & Anne Vyalitsyna certainly doesn’t hurt either.

BIBHU MOHAPATRA

Director Katie Fischer brings Bibhu Mohapatra’s sumptuous fall showing to life with an elegant film that shows the collection’s beauty in great detail, Fischer’s film captures the line’s beauty and its luxury. Kaleidoscopic facets hone in on every last detail; from the snowy white eyeshadow on Mackenzie Hamilton‘s lids to the ombre finish of a showstopper dress.

T by ALEXANDER WANG

We’re always partial to models over celebrities, but sometimes a little star power works. Alexander Wang brings in hip hop’s fiercest femme, Azealia Banks for the T by Alexander Wang campaign video, directed by Daniel Jackson and styled by Alastair McKimm. Bringing energy, style and her infectious track, Van Vogue to the project Banks feels like just what the doctor ordered.

MIU MIU

Miu Miu’s behind the scenes vid isn’t unusual, but it features the unique pleasure of watching style icon Chloe Sevigny trying on clothes. There are whole issues of Self Service dedicated to this very concept and though Chloe has been on the scene since the mid-90s she’s still an ideal representation of the chic Miu Miu girl.

Family First

July 16th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Good looks run in the family, Abbey Lee Kershaw‘s handsome brother Tim joins her for a special Vogue China story by Daniel Jackson and styled to the nines by Alastair McKimm. With a casual cool ethos, plus chic styles by Alexander Wang, Maison Martin Margiela and Acne, the edit provides a youthful spin on unfussy, classic for men and women. Here’s to hoping this isn’t the last time Tim joins his sis in the fashion pages.

Impeccable

August 3rd, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Vogue China celebrates its 5th anniversary with a stellar salute to Asian talent;  the magazine’s dual September covers feature the phenomenal cast of Liu Wen, Shu Pei, Ming Xi, Fei Fei Sun and Tao Okamoto in stunning crimson looks from Alexander Wang. The contrasting images by Peter Lindbergh & Daniel Jackson are strong, elegant and reflect the unique beauty of each girl while showing the verstaility of Wang’s designs; it is amazing how these looks go from classic to modern just with a quick change of hair and makeup.
