Mod Squad

June 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The resurgence of mod was one of fall’s most impactful runway trends and American Vogue captures the look with a playful Mario Testino (Art Partner) editorial starring Cara Delevingne. London girl Cara is the perfect person to pull off this quintessentially British look and she’s joined by lead singer of The Heartbreaks Matthew Whitehouse and Josh Nickerson (Anti-Agency), both of whom look authentically retro. Grace Coddington handles styling and as always provides an eye-catching mix of designer wares. Pieces from Tom Ford, Burberry and Saint Laurent Paris are put to good use and Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Linda Cantello‘s hair & makeup provide the final touch of swinging sixties beauty.

Less is More

May 7th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Josh Olins kicks back in the pages of British Vogue with an editorial infused with easygoing charm. Set in the windswept hills of Santa Barbara and starring Andreea Diaconu and Ashleigh Goodthe story focuses on minimal separates in neutral colors. With stylist Clare Richardson at the helm, the pared down color palette and restrained lineup of pieces from ChanelDerek Lam and Burberry Prorsum seems effortlessly cool rather than sharply severe. For their part, Andreea and Ashleigh look right at home in every shot, whether they’re lounging in the tall grass, or posing together on the edge of the boardwalk.

The Silk Road

November 19th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s difficult not to have a soft spot for American Vogue‘s actor + model editorials and over the years the magazine has given us more than a few memorable pairings; Gisele and George Clooney, Gemma Ward and Josh Hartnett, Liya Kebede & Andre 3000, the list goes on. For the December issue Vogue takes things to the next level, enlisting Kate Moss and this year’s Oscar front-runner Chiwetel Ejiofor for a Mario Testino (Art Partner) helmed story that takes the pair to Istanbul on a romantic getaway. Sporting resort looks from BurberryJason Wu and a bit of SS14 Proenza Schouler as styled by Tonne Goodman, the pair looks resplendent. With architectural wonders like the Çinili Köşk as the backdrop and Testino showcasing the beauty of Istanbul in every shot the story also serves as an especially chic travel diary.

Resort Getaway

May 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Resort is underway and designers are turning out collections filled with surprising elements – whether the look is downtown cool, or polished elegance, the mini-season is off to a refreshing start.

BURBERRY PRORSUM
Designer: Christopher Bailey
Models: Ava Smith & Charlotte Wiggins

The Burberry look has always been a mix of luxe and offbeat, so this season’s playful touches like jeweled detailing and transparent lace skirts feel just right. Bailey masterfully reinterprets the house’s standards season after season, so for those in search of trench coats, cardigans and well cut jackets there is plenty to enjoy. Statement looks like pastel brocade topcoats and crystal covered pencil skirts provide the requisite easy-going glamour resort is all about.

DKNY
Models: Valery KaufmanEmeline Ghesquiere

You can have the DKNY resort collection in any color – as long as it’s black. DKNY has always reflected the needs of an urbane, youthful consumer but for resort things got gritty. Perhaps taking a cue from the haute-goth stylings of lines like Givenchy, DKNY filled their collection with hard-edge black pieces in multiple incarnations. Lacy blouses, transparent floor-length skirts and textured bomber jackets all in inky shades. A few chic metallic pieces added interest, but the stark looks stole the show.

OSCAR DE LA RENTA
Designer: Oscar de la Renta
Models: Kayley ChabotAmanda MurphyMagdalena JasekMaria Borges Manuela Frey & Pauline Van der Cruysse

Who can resist Oscar de la Renta’s frothy brand of femininity. For the legendary designer the resort season meant an abundance of lively colors and cocktail frocks filled with color, pattern and a youthful joie de vivre. Even if you’re not rushing out to brunch, or a fabulous party in one of De La Renta’s creations everyone can appreciate the grandeur of his vision.
