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. The re-imagined Dazed hits newsstands on the 27th and with it comes a wealth of exciting new visual content headlined by the best and brightest talents. 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.

For more on the new Dazed head on over to Dazed Digital for a full look at Vol IV.

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.

Surreal Chic

May 21st, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

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. Stylist Katie Shillingford works in an array of statement pieces from Maison Martin Margiela, Stephen Jones Millinery and Delfina Delettrez to create a look that nods to Dalí and Dadaism. With her sculptural features and otherworldly look Marie carries off the feel of the editorial perfectly.

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.

Dreamgirl

December 16th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Ben Toms brings out the softer side of Meghan Collison for Vogue Russia  in a feminine story styled by Katie Shillingford. With cat-eye glasses and a series of Syd Hayes crafted coifs, Meghan is a vision of 1950s kitsch perfection: Bettie Page would be proud.

Chameleon Mix

December 12th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Robbie Spencer‘s unique styling never fades into the background, but in Ben Toms‘s latest story for Dazed & Confused, Spencer’s colorful mish mash of patterns is perfectly matched with Simon Costin‘s set design. The striking Yannick Abrath wears everything from Prada’s cartoonish golf prints to Givenchy’s surfer inspired s/s gear in this visual overload of an editorial.

In A Daze

May 16th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Ben Toms shoots a colorful and kinetic story for Dazed & Confused featuring girl of the moment, Saskia de Brauw. The out of sight styling by Jacob K, mixes print and pattern for a fresh spin on some of the season’s popular pieces, while hair and makeup by Shon and Hiromi Ueda, add to the overall feeling of off-kilter cool. We can’t help but love Saskia in this and those studded flats that feature prominently.
