The Look of: Yelena Yemchuk

June 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With an eye for the off-kilter side of feminine imagery, Yelena Yemchuk has made a name for herself in the world of fashion photography, creating striking visuals for magazines like Vogue Italia, Numero, Dazed & Confused and countless others. Though her big break came with the covers for Smashing Pumpkin’s now classic albums, her fashion work is no less stellar. In her latest work for 25 Magazine she taps into Carmen Kass‘s inner chameleon, creating a stripped down showcase for the iconic beauty’s transformation skills.

Transformation is a recurring theme in Yemchuk’s photos, every woman she captures takes on a bold new character, whether it is actress Kirsten Dunst going ethereal at the seashore, or Eniko Mihalik becoming a surrealist masterwork, the changes are always intriguing to see.

May 8th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With four gorge covers shot by Kai Z Fengstyled by Tom Van Dorpe, and art directed by Jakob Hysén Hedberg,the latest issue of  Stockholm S/S/A/W Magazine packs an instantaneous punch. The stark yet elegant shots of Aline WeberNimue SmitShu Pei and Hailey Clauson are haunting and beautiful – not to mention a nice change from all the over-saturated colors we’ve been seeing on covers lately. Inside the content is top notch, with new stories from photography’s young guard featuring a selective edit of stylish pieces chosen by Oscar Lange. We’re particularly partial to those menswear looks on the back of Frida Gustavsson, but take a look inside Stockholm S/S/A/W yourself with our preview.

mdc ♥s: The Scent of Spring

March 31st, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Looking to get into a spring mood – check out Aline Weber in the ultimate floral editorial shot by Liz Collins for the new issue of Numero

VALENTINO VALENTINA – Under the direction of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli the Valentino label has become one of the most romantic lines in all of fashion. How do you take that spirit of femininity and capture it in a fragrance? Master perfumers, Olivier Cresp and Alberto Morillas created a blend of bergamot, white truffles from Alba, jasmine, orange blossom and tuberose, that practically sparkles. The scent is sweet, flirtatious and resplendently invigorating. Oh and the bottle design is one of the best we’ve seen in years — a true original!

CHLOE L’EAU DE CHLOE – A bracing blast of feminine freshness that also made our list of favorite green scents. The unfussy yet polished looks you see on the Chloe runway, find their counterpart in the citrus chypre created by Michel Almairac – the force behind the super popular original Chloe scent. Where the original wears like fine silk suit, L’Eau is more of a sheer chiffon blouse – lighter than air and laced with sex appeal.

MCMC MAINE – The coasts of North Haven might not be the most exotic locale on the planet, but its the perfect place to fall in love. MCMC’s talented Anne McClain, crafts a scent that is fresh yet enveloping. Bulgarian rose absolute, local clary sage & wild Somalian myrhh combine to create memorable & beautiful moment.

JO MALONE IRIS & LADY MOORE – Is it just us or has the Jo Malone brand gotten a little punk now that Charlotte Stockdale is on board? The London Bloom’s collection boasts a great deal of that signature Stockdale irreverence. We were impressed by the artistic packaging and unexpected scent combinations. Picking a favorite is hard, the Iris & Lady Moore cologne is a compelling mix of iris nobile, vetiver and an oh so on trend geranium note.

TOM FORD SANTAL BLUSH – It is hard to write about a Tom Ford fragrance without using the word sexy and Santal Blush is no exception to the rule. Ford explores the exotic and erotic, with an ode to sandalwood and spice that is light and airy. To quote the man himself, “if it were a color it would be the shade of sunkissed skin.”

VIKTOR & ROLF FLOWERBOMB – The modern classic and perfect spring scent. Bombastic florals, a hint of sweetnes and the oh so Viktor & Rolf playfulness that makes it addictive. Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia and Patchouli all in a pretty pink grenade.

MAISON FRANCIS KURKDJIAN AQUA UNIVERSALIS FORTE -  As one of the kings of niche fragrance, Francis Kurkdjian’s unorthodox perfumes are works of art. Aqua Universalis Forte is all about the allure of white flowers – jasmine, lily of the valley and Moroccan roses all in one ethereal blend.

ARQUISTE INFANTA EN FLOR – Architect Carlos Huber dips into fragrance with a collection of scents based around important moments in history. Created in honor of “Maria Teresa, the Infanta of Spain, who was offered to Louis XIV in exchange for peace” the orange blossom and leather based blend is a touch of regal grace.

Lacey Things

November 4th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Emma Summerton and Patti Wilson tackle the season’s lace trend with an elegant story for Vogue Italia. With Aline Weber sporting some of the season’s key pieces, the story hits all the right  notes. Look closely and you’ll see Ralph Lauren‘s infamous dragon dress (fresh from Rooney Mara‘s November Vogue cover) and Stella McCartney’s popular polka dot number and even a look from Nicola Formichetti‘s Mulgler reboot. Shot in Summerton’s frosty color palette and accented by Shay Ashual & Mathias van Hooff‘s hair and makeup magic, the images are pure fashion fantasy.
