Marni’s Ad Debut is Fashion-Focused

July 23rd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

For Marni‘s debut ready-to-wear ad campaign shot by art photographer Jackie Nickerson you can’t help but focus on the clothes. Marte Mei van Haaster is shown languidly lying on the ground, stretching for the sun, or propped against a table, while her face is shyly hidden to the camera and her audience. The strongly colored background gives a great frame for the Fall/Winter 2015 collection that features cinched waistlines, exotic skins and furs, and a 40s Hitchcockian thematic for the modern urban-warrior woman.

To see some of the images check it out below.

See Inside: Let’s Panic Issue 2

July 20th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Straddling the margins between art and fashion, Issue 2 of Let’s Panic Magazine is trickling into stands in the U.S.A. now and Europe to follow.  The large format, in-your-face magazine, the project of photographer Greg Kadel, is a collection of inspired editorials, hued from the bold and experimental to the indulgent to the introspective. The thoughtful list of creators and contributors is worthy of praise – Boo George, Mario Sorrenti, Jeff Bark, Jennifer Starr, Judy Blame and Mark Lebon to name a few. On that note, Editor in Chief, Aaron Ward writes, “Of all the steps taken in the creation of an issue of Let’s Panic, the one we most enjoy is the exploratory stage, the part where meetings and conversations introduce us to new people, novel ideas and undiscovered creative twists.”

Inside the magazine, Greg Kadel photographs Jac Jagaciak for a vivid, varicolored beauty story. Shot through water that shifts the light, beauty team Fulvia Farolfi and Nicolas Jurnjack  produce gorgeous tides of blues, rouges and yellows. Editor-slash-photographer Aaron Ward abstractly shoots a model pressed against a pane of glass, to the effect of leaves pressed in a book.  Other editorials breathe life into archival images, like the cover image from Mario Sorrenti’s black-and-white, road trip portraits or casting director Jennifer Starr’s multitude of polaroids.

July 17th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

This time around Mario Sorrenti captures the connections between sister and brother model duos Armando and Fernando Cabral, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Erika and Joan Smalls, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner. There’s no rivalry here with the pairs giving each other a helping hand by applying lip-liner or providing a supporting rest. The familial love brings another meaning of power and strength to the fabulous Balmain Army that Olivier Rousteing has assembled.

The goth-girl mob is back with major attitude for the latest Alexander Wang campaign. Shot by longtime Wang collaborator Steven Klein, and styled by Karl Templer, the ad with creative direction by Pascal Dangin of KiDS Creative, features a moody flock of model and artistic muses — Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Isabella Emmack, Lexi Boling, Molly Bair, and Sarah Brannon — as well as singer Alice Glass and the Japanese dance duo AyaBambi, fresh off a Madonna video appearance. The fashionable clan effortlessly sulk in studded frocks and platform creepers aligned with perfected visages, courtesy of beauty team Anthony Turner and Mark Carrasquillo. This crew is not to be trifled with!

Lily Aldridge Sizzles Over the Summer

July 14th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Heading into August, the summer months brought a good haul for Lily AldridgeCarolina Herrera‘s FW 15 campaign plus the face of their fragrance, covering both L’Officiel & L’Officiel Netherlands and she’s fronting this month’s Vogue Turkey. The Victoria’s Secret Angel, who also can be seen in Taylor Swift‘s model-studded music video for “Bad Blood” and part of the pop-star’s real life squad, is definitely having a summer sizzle moment. Front and center for Vogue Turkey, David Bellemere photographs her gracefully posed against a lush and blooming backdrop. For Herrera, Lily is clothed in rose red looking extra sophisticated. The L’Officiel covers, both lensed by Hugh Lippe and styled by Keegan Singh, find two fashion facets of the Angel–for the Netherlands, they keep things red-hot with warm tones and undone hair.  For Paris the look is polished, cool and fresh having the American model pose beachside. Hopefully Lily’s summer winning keeps rolling into the fall.

Boss Mode

June 30th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

It’s a moody, dark atmosphere that Jason Wu has envisioned for the Hugo Boss world. Doe-eyed beauty Edie Campbell and the dapper Clement Chabernaud take on a grooved-wall labyrinth in the Fall 2015 campaign shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Sleek tailoring and surprising pops of warm color are key to the visuals that exude a metropolitan edge with a confident swagger. Boss mode, indeed.
