Banal Plus

July 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The normcore trend has been the subject of much debate – is it chic, is it lazy, is it even a legitimate trend at all? Craig McDean and Edward Enninful take on the look in the pages of W Magazine with an editorial that mixes the best in designer gear with everyday staples like Adidas tube socks and white clogs – the kind of items you’re more likely to find in the closets of athletes than amongst the accessories utilized in a fashion story. With boy short bowl cuts by James Pecis (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management) and minimal makeup by Fulvia Farolfi (ArtList Paris) models Daiane ConteratoGrace MaharyAymeline ValadeManuela FreyKatlin AasAmanda Murphy and Fei Fei Sun look equal parts haute and banal.

The In Crowd

July 8th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

A gathering of cool kids will always be a fashion moment unto itself and Steven Meisel taps into that idea for the latest issue of Vogue Italia. Instead of an otherworldly setting Meisel enlists Edie Campbell, Lexi Boling, Amanda Murphy, Vanessa Moody, Julia NobisMeghan CollisonRJ King, Yuri Pleskun, David Axell, Geron McKinley, Dorian Reeves, David Alexander Flinn, Cameron Keesling and Tobias Hayduk for a pared down shoot that recreates the look and feel of a happening cafe setting. Mariana Santana and Anna Ewers join the fun in the accompanying editorial where models blow smoke rings as they sport heavy black liner and subtly 60s style coifs for a look that nods to the retro without being too referential. As usual Mary Howard‘s production design is flawless and the New Wave vibes are hammered home by Pat McGrath‘s makeup and Guido Palau‘s hair.

Laundry Service

August 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

As some of the most divisive and easily recognizable pieces of the fall/winter season, Céline‘s bold plaid prints have become a focal point in editorials the past few months. Whether you love the red and blue tartan, or find they resemble the ubiquitous laundry bags found at your local bodega it is impossible to deny their presence in the pages of fashion glossies. Though most stylists don’t stray too far from the runway interpretation of the look, Philo’s creations remain compelling, especially when juxtaposed with an interesting background or unique set. In Steven Meisel‘s Vogue Italia shots they are pit against a swirling arm chair by designer Tord Boontje and the pairing brings out the best of both statement pieces. Likewise the seeing the Celine plaid opposite Stella McCartney‘s version of the same in Vogue Russia provides a concise overview of one of fall’s key trends. Naturally, there are also moments when all you need is a great model and a few more pieces from the collection, case in point Tao Okamoto‘s new cover of Vogue Japan which provides an ideal showcase for Tao and those coveted thigh high boots.

Murphy’s Law

July 31st, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Chic Chicagoan Amanda Murphy is quietly becoming the go to girl for top tier photographers in search of a little All-American charm. With her classic features and soulful brown eyes, Amanda harks back to an earlier period in modeling. It’s easy to imagine off-kilter beauty fitting right in during the late 90s / early 00s, back when all models were expected to have a mix of edge and elegance. It’s that combination that makes Amanda such an in demand commodity, this month alone you’ll find her face in the pages of American Vogue, Vogue Paris and on her 2nd Vogue Italia cover in a row.
