Champions of Earth

April 22nd, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko


In honor of Earth Day and the planet we inhabit, decided to reflect on a few of the industry’s most eco-friendly champions. These are the recognizable faces campaigning, not for customers, but for sustainability and environmental ethics, along with a simple compassion for Mother Nature. Forty-five years after the first Earth Day there is still much work to be done. Beneath the recent issues of social dissidence and global dilemmas, there is the simplest cause of them all–Earth! Here are few of fashion’s favorite sustainability advocates.

Gisele Bundchen, who recently retired from the runway, is an outspoken and longtime supporter of the environmental cause. She’s a UNEP ambassador amongst her many activism achievements and in 2014 the Rainforest Alliance added the Brazilan Super to its board of directors.

“Today is Earth Day! Let’s love, honor and take care of our beautiful Mother Earth. We are One. Our well being depends on how we take care of our planet. This is our home, the only one we have.”

Italian fashion designer Stefano Pilati of Ermenegildo Zegna donates five percent of net profits towards the Oasi Zegna initiative and has committed the luxury brand to going green and creating something more eco-conscious by using recycled yarns and natural materials. Fittingly, his AW 15 show took place in mock-forest equipped with lush greenery.

Her luxury brand carries a statement saying, “is our responsibility to do what we can to become a more sustainable company. We are responsible for the resources that we use and the impact that we have. We are always exploring new and innovative ways to become more sustainable.”

Super Eight

March 5th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For L’Officiel Singapore‘s 8th anniversary issue Steven Klein (Art Partner) shoots eight covers featuring eight icons and modern muses. Harnessing the full potential of the coveted cast of beauties Klein produces a lustrous assemblage of fashion-noir covers. Naomi Campbell, Angela Lindvall, Guinevere Van Seenus, Liu Wen, Xiao Wen Ju, Jamie Bochert, Crystal Renn and Maria Borges each command their moments with steely perfection. Klein says of the reasoning behind the casted eight, “They are powerful, unique and know how to hold the camera.” Collaborating with fashion directors Jack Wang and Jumius Wong and stylist Patti Wilson (Streeters New York), the foursome put together a darkly, romantic spread equipped with black leather and stunning, mischievous headpieces. For each shoot, in classic Klein mode, he instigates a hushed eroticism where the models’ poses are both defiant and submissive.

Double Vision: Clear Winner

March 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Transparency was all over the S/S13 runways and as the season draws closer it seems fitting to explore one of its dominant trends. The house whose designs exemplified the look was VALENTINO, where designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli showed a variety of pieces that utilized transparency expertly, revealing skin but keeping the demure sophistication the brand has become known for. Whether they were dazzling with delicate embroidery, or creating a sublime showcase for the body via cutouts, the duo set the standard for diaphanous dressing.

One piece in particular took the look to its logical endpoint and dazzled with its whimsical cheekiness. The PVC trenchcoat embellished with the line’s signature rockstuds has become an editorial favorite, with stylists providing their own take on the Valentino look. The trench lends itself to a myriad of different interpretations and stylists did not disappoint, creating a variety of looks that range from sensual, to avant-garde. When a garment can go from the all out sexy of Missy Rayder‘s powerful image in Numero, to the easy cool on the back of Angela Lindvall it more than proves its versatility.

Beauty Bytes: Josie’s Model Citizens & Swarovski’s Aura

April 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Arguably the most beautiful & exciting thing to come our way this week was the new Swarovski scent, AURA. Ultra-sleek packaging aside (the bottle was designed by Gwenaël Nicolas, man behind some of the world’s architectural masterpieces) the scent completely captures everything we love about Swarovski. A crystal is the perfect final touch, that extra bit of shimmer that makes an ensemble special – Aura is that in a fragrance. The delicate blend of amber, benzoin & white musk sparkles on the skin and with a brand new Aura gloss compact it sparkles on the lips too.

We love when models do something special for a charitable cause, so naturally we’re in love with model turned beauty mogul Josie Maran‘s latest project. For the ‘Model Citizen’ campaign Josie teams up with Petra Nemcova and Angela Lindvall to create limited edition bottles of her line’s famous Argan oil, with bottles designed by each girl & proceeds going to the charities close to the girl’s hearts – Happy Hearts fund, Women for Women & Healthy Child / Healthy World all benefit.

Take a look inside Lara Stone‘s makeup bag and what will you find – apparently a whole lot of Calvin Klein & Sisley! Speaking of Calvin, take a look at our first impressions of the new ck one color collection.

Speculation on who Dior’s newly minted designer, Raf Simons will put on makeup duty is rising. British Vogue takes a look back at Pat McGrath‘s impressive Dior beauty creations during the time of John Galliano, while suggests Raf might be leaning towards his longtime cosmetic collaborator Peter Philips.
