Disturbing the Peace

March 26th, 2015 |Posted by Irene

Fear has no place in a revolution and the latest issue of i-D Magazine sheds a spotlight on the courageous “Generation Z” leaders of today. “The Activist Issue” focuses on the movement towards a better world and the feminist, punk rock girl group Pussy Riot tells their story and use of social media to spread their message. Three years after Nadya (Nadezhda Tolokonnikova) and Masha (Maria Alyokhina) were arrested for their punk prayer performance in a church, they are fighting against injustice in their motherland, Russia and beyond. Photographer Bruce Weber captures them beautifully exposed and revealing.

Paige Views

February 27th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

A new model can burst onto the scene in a variety of ways, but now more than ever a strong following on social media can lead to big things in the modeling world. There is no better example of that than rising star Paige Reifler who has both impressive numbers on Instagram and the support of big names like Carine Roitfeld, Bruce Weber, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and Stephen Gan. Making an editorial splash this month Paige appears in in the latest issues of V Magazine, V Man and CR Fashion Book. Showcasing her sensual side while posing wearing little more than a Saint Laurent blanket Paige makes an modern pinup in in Inez & Vinoodh’s portrait. For VMan Paige sports denim cutoffs and a Saint Laurent blazer in Bruce Weber’s naturalistic shots. Finally in CR Paige embodies the spirit of the Bulgari brand for Johnny Dufort as part of a series of Carine helmed fantasy campaigns. Dipped in inky black water and glittering diamonds Paige transforms into a darkly elegant seductress.

But don’t take our word for it, here are a few words from the girl of the moment herself on working with Carine, posing for V and what the energy was like on all three sets.

“V Magazine has been a staple for me since I picked up my first copy years ago. Stephen Gan has mastered combining fashion, music, and culture while keeping V’s innately cool aesthetic. I look up to Stephen tremendously and I feel lucky to know him. It was a dream come true to be featured in the latest issue of V and to shoot with such incredibly talented and iconic photographers, Inez and Vinoodh. The energy on set with Bruce and his team is like I’ve never experienced. I’m so happy I got to work with Bruce and I hope to be able to shoot with him again soon! Shooting V Man with Bruce Weber at his house in Miami felt like a vacation. Carine Roitfelds bold and unique vision behind CR Fashion book is one of a kind. Her creativity is contagious, and to be a part of the latest issue is a thrill.” – Paige Reifler

Vuitton 2.0

January 7th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

No other designer could pull together Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber and Juergen Teller (Camilla Lowther Management) for one campaign, but Nicolas Ghesquière does it for the second season in a row with the Series 2 campaign for Louis Vuitton. Ghesquière’s streetwise spring collection built on the ideas he laid out in his first collection for the brand and the triple-header campaign does the same for Vuitton’s visual identity. With longtime muse (and former model) Jennifer Connelly leading the pack, Ghesquière focuses on women whose innate cool meshes well with the laid back look he’s been building at Vuitton. Models Marte Mei van Haaster, Rianne van Rompaey, Daphne Simons, Jean Campbell and Freja Beha Erichsen serve as stars and bring with them a sense of youthful chic. With locations ranging from an art-filled Parisian townhouse to the top of an unfinished Manhattan skyscraper the eclectic images from Weber, Liebovitz and Weber make for a flawless campaign.

Ralph’s Grand Voyage

December 29th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Ralph Lauren has alway cultivated his own vision of luxury – a dash of Americana here, a touch of cinematic pomp there and a final touch of grandeur for good measure. The fashion icon’s latest campaign brings quirkiness into the mix with a fun-filled image by Bruce Weber starring Sanne Vloet. With a family of camels in the background and Sanne sporting the safari-inspired voluminous gown that closed the designer’s S/S15 show, Weber creates an atmosphere of whimsy and exploration.

EY! Boy Collection

December 5th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

Luis Venegas, the Spanish mastermind behind brilliantly unconventional magazines Candy and Fanzine137, introduces his latest groundbreaking project this week with the launch of EY! Boy Collection, an exclusive offshoot of EY! Magateen, which has, through nine issues, celebrated an international collection of youthful, masculine energy with a provocative and cheeky twist. For its inaugural issue, in hardcover with a limited-edition run of five hundred copies, all one hundred pages have been turned over to Bruce Weber, whose gimlet-eyed view of all-American youth has spawned an artistic genre in its own right. Weber here trains his lens on seventeen-year-old Florida native Garrett Taber, an avid surfer and rising new face who first worked with the photographer on a shoot for Abercrombie & Fitch. Taber’s sparkling eyes and charming smile fill the issue, for the first in a series of single-guy, single-photographer collaborations that promises to add another shining star to Venegas’ bursting roster. Take an exclusive first look inside the new publication, now available at ByLuisVenegas.com, below.
