Surrealist State

December 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As the most talked about model of the moment, Kendall Jenner has been everywhere this year – including on the cover of Dazed & Confused, where she displayed an appealingly avant garde side in Ben Toms‘ eclectic cover shots styled by Robbie Spencer. The concept goes one step further with the release of Toms’ trippy accompanying film which sees the raven haired beauty posing in a variety of haute fashion looks accented by glossy makeup by Yadim (Art Partner) and Shon‘s larger than life hair styles. In keeping with Dazed’s tradition of outside the box content the film has a weird and wonderful style reminiscent of vintage video.

Changing Faces

November 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Ben Toms.
Robbie Spencer.
Kendall Jenner.

As the social media generation’s unofficial face, Kendall has come to represent changes in the way modeling stars are made. From reality star, to social media upstart and finally top model, Kendall has blazed her own unique trail through the industry so a cover of fashion’s most inventive magazine seems only fitting. Shot by Toms and styled by Spencer, Jenner is in her element as both a futuristic pinup and a nouveau mod. A special 3rd cover features both images spliced together by artist, Doug Abraham.

Minajesty

Demure might not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of Nicki Minaj, but on the new covers of Dazed & Confused the stunning singer / rapper / actress and newly signed One Management model is ladylike in Chanel and Miu Miu. Jeff Bark (Management + Artists) and Robbie Spencer offer a refined new perspective on an artist who continues to evolve & surprise. Though she sports a slinky gold swimsuit in one shot, the images are more elegant than outlandish – think 40s era pinup rather than aughts pop star. The launch of the Dazed covers wraps up a busy NYFW for Minaj, who sat front row at several shows and even found the time to teach the models at Alexander Wang how to dance.

Inside the issue models are given the spotlight via a luxurious sportswear feature by Ben Toms styled by Mattias Karlsson. Capturing the casual yet exclusive vibe of the moment the story features Helena Severin lounging in a series of looks that could be ripped from the runways or taken straight out of the closet of a chic athlete. Karlsson’s combinations are on point, with puffy bubble jackets and printed swimwear looking haute when paired with sky high heels.

For even more from Dazed’s A/W Issue head on over to Dazed Digital for an in depth preview.

Dazed Declares Independence

February 24th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion thrives on reinvention on and off the runway, so when it was announced that Dazed & Confused was going seasonal it heralded a new beginning for one of the business’ most beloved magazines.

With film star Scarlett Johansson on the front page shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby and sporting two very different looks the issue begins by turning expectations on their head. Presenting one of pop culture’s ultimate pinups as a tough street chick is right in line with the Dazed ethos and it sets the stage for a stellar issue. Inside you’ll find new editorial content from Ruth HogbenLachlan Bailey (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists), Harley WeirBen TomsRobbie Spencer and Tony Irvine (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) and more. Each story offers an original take on the season’s wares, but the 50 pages of collections imagery is a special sartorial treat.

The Miu Miu Age

July 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

In 1993 the Miu Miu line launched as an offshoot of Miuccia Prada‘s creative empire. With an ultra-feminine point of a view and a youthful, eclectic design sensibility the label quickly came into its own. Rising from a secondary project into a full-fledged powerhouse of its own, Miu Miu has grown exponentially, becoming a favorite label of insiders and celebrities alike. Over the years there have countless memorable moments of Miu and in their latest issue Dazed & Confused travels back through the archives with an atmospheric edit by Ben Toms. With a series of quintessential brand faces lounging around in key looks from seasons past, Toms and Robbie Spencer capture the essence of what makes the brand special – that intrinsic feeling of youthful whimsy and insouciance, infused in each outfit and brought to life here in chic style.

Creativity is on display in the latest Vogue Russia, Ben Toms‘s chic surrealist story starring Marie Piovesan is a perfect addition to the publication’s Dasha Zhukova fronted Art Issue.

Butterfly Effect

May 14th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion inspiration is hard to come by lately, but Dazed & Confused never fails to excite. Ben Toms pushes the visual envelope with help from makeup master Peter Philips and the styling genius of Robbie Spencer. Dutch beauty Elza Luijendijk is transformed into an otherworldly creature with a liberal application of butterflies, moths and of course, diamonds – the end result is pure magic.
