At Last

June 12th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Since its inception The Last Magazine has been one of fashion’s essential reads, with continuously impressive content and an oversized format The Last never disappoints. That said, carting around one of fashion’s largest publications can prove difficult – thankfully The Last’s newly launched iPad app offers a portable version of every thing you love about the original. Complete with exclusive new content and gorgeous hi-res visuals the app puts the power and beauty of each issue in a format that fits right into your purse or pocket. Inside you’ll find never before seen features with Karlie Kloss and Caroline Brasch Nielsen .

When asked about the magazine’s new digital direction editors in chief Tenzin Wild & Magnus Berger expressed their excitement for new media’s potential “We’re really proud of the iPad edition. Not only does it look great, but we’re proud that we found a way to share all of this talent with a much larger audience. The Last Magazine has a limited distribution and this will help anybody have access to what’s new in culture, in art, in music, in film, in all the things that make Last special. We’re also really excited about the medium—the iPad—and the creative potential it unlocks.”

Spring Forward

January 29th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

You wouldn’t know it from the frigid cold gripping New York City at the moment, but spring is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: new campaigns. After our round­ups of the best Spring 2014 womenswear ads (here and here), we thought it was time to give the guys their fair due. Here’s our picks for some of our favorite men’s campaigns for the season, all of them featuring rich explosions of color to help us through these dreary, gray winter days.

tumblr_mz1q7argpR1r4ps7po1_12801-763x1024
Hugo Boss HUGO line
Last July, photographer Pierre Debusschere hit the Utah salt flats—home of the famed land­speed trials so powerfully illuminated in Rachel Kushner’s breakout 2013 novel The Flamethrowers— for Hugo Boss’ energetic, athletic younger label. Victor Nylander, Sung Jin Park, and Andrew Westermann are joined by Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Kasia Struss and the lambent, translucent hues of what look like shimmering mirages, add a soft tinge of glowing color to the blinding whiteness of the pristine sodium crust.

222137-800w
Jil Sander
The namesake designer may be once again dearly departed, but she has left her artistic, distinctly modernist fingerprints all over the house’s latest campaign, shot by David Sims. Ben Waters and Edie Campbell wear their sharp, graphic ensembles —distressed plaid for him and tangled florals for her against a faded background combining the strictest geometry with the soft delicacy of nature.

213814-800w
Kenzo
In their second collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari‘s idiosyncratic art magazine Toilet Paper, designers Humberto Leon & Carol Lim have demonstrated their revolutionary talents extend far beyond their charming runway designs. A relaxed Devon Aoki perches upon a trout carried on Paul Boche‘s shoulders, both of them dressed in a soothing, swaying ripple print inspired by the surf of Leon and Lim’s native Southern California and lit by the harsh glow of red neon.

Patrik Ervell
After making a stunning campaign début with his stark black ­and­ white images of Max Von Isser in an overgrown field last Fall, Ervell enlisted up ­and­ coming photographer Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) for an appropriately luminous series of images that find Michael Lange wearing his sailing­ inspired pieces against the digitally enhanced shine of an impossibly rich and vibrant oceanic sunset.

unnamed-9
Salvatore Ferragamo
The Italian house’s campaigns can sometimes have an anodyne feel of anonymous luxury to them, but Spring finds Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) bringing a vivid pop of classic Modernism to their images. Stalwarts Sean O’Pry and Daria Werbowy bask in the radiant warmth of the sherbet­colored angles and columns that bring to mind the cheery, iconic designs of the Mexican Pritzker Prize–winning architect Luis Barragán.

With references ranging from Jazz Age designer, Emilie Floge’s couture pieces to El Anatsui’s wood carvings, Caylor certainly isn’t lacking for inspiration and the pieces she crafts represent an exciting mix of old and new. Standouts included graphic printed overcoats and flowing, lighter than air dresses worn with ease.

CHLOE
Designer: Clare Waight Keller
Models: Elisabeth Erm, Marique Schimmel & Caroline Brasch Nielsen

Chloe strikes a nonchalantly elegant mood with a collection that focuses on the beauty of a laid back look. Relaxed tailoring and a beachy color palette create a feel that is undone, yet sophisticated – even the evening gowns have a casualness that makes them enticing. Guipures and embroidered details add a sense of playfulness, while standout accessories reinforce the house’s heritage as originator of the it-bag – keep an eye on the gold bar embellished Clare satchel.

Paris fashion week was filled with beautiful moments du jour, but none were quite as cool as KENZO‘s safari chic collection.

Campaign Confidential

July 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The ads keep on coming, check out a few more of our faves from the season – take a look back at our previous campaign favorites post too.

Balenciaga

While we can’t imagine either Nicolas Ghesquière or Steven Meisel spending a lazy weekend at the shore, the Balenciaga campaign is set in such an idyll. Fresh faces Anniek KortleveLinn ArvidssonHirschy HirschfelderJulier BuggeJuliet Ingleby and Rosie Tapner lay out on the dunes in those eccentric looks from F/W.

Chanel

Simple, clean and led by a stellar cast, Chanel’s fresh ads feature Kati Nescher, Lindsey Wixson & Cora Emmanuel as styled by Carine Roitfeld. Naturally, Karl Lagerfeld is behind the camera – which depending on your perspective you either love or hate, that said the casting on this is flaw free.

Dolce & Gabbana

A taste of Italian nostalgia shot by Giampaolo Sgura and featuring Monica Bellucci, Bianca Balti and Bianca Brandolini – each image feels like a still from a Pasolini film.

Valentino

Valentino once again gives us a vision of pure class from the iconic Deborah Turbeville. Elegantly color coordinated looks on Jac JagaciakCaroline Brasch Nielsen and Frida Gustavsson – what’s not to love?

Fendi

When you have Joan Smalls and Karl Lagerfeld you don’t really need much else. With the natural setting and powerful poses, this new ads remind us a bit of Anja Rubik‘s S/S 10 ads for the luxe line.

Y-3 The Story is in the Past

July 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Past is present for Y-3, the sport-luxe brand’s unique new campaign by Collier Schorr features Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Victor Nylander & Thomas Sottong on the edge of wilderness, clad in those elegantly nomadic looks from the F/W show styled by Jay Massacret with art direction by Lloyd and Co.

The campaign film, ‘The Story is in the Past’ directed by Schorr, continues with this exploration of time and place. As the camera loops around a central makeshift structure, we become more and more immersed in the story unfolding. What are you seeing? What are you hearing? A struggle, a dance, a longing for intimacy?

As time passes these images repeat, interrupted by fragments of what may or may not be real. Nothing is clear, the story is transmitted through the distortions, glitches, crackling and dust which punctuate the film.

The dramatic mood of the film and the starkly beautiful ad imagery makes for a one of a kind take on the rustic side of sportswear.

The Look of Benjamin Lennox

May 7th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

There is no shortage of young photography talent on the scene, but it takes a lot to stand out from the fray. Lately we’ve been noticing the dynamic work of Benjamin Lennox and his uniquely arresting style. With images that are sharp, sleek and striking, Lennox has carved out a niche for himself, shooting for magazines like 10 Men Magazine, Muse Magazine and VMan.

His latest story, Chromatic for 10 Men is an expressive feast for the eyes, that captures everything we’re loving about his style. From the creative use of accessories & props that give the portraits an off-kilter feel (note the precisely placed rose petals dangling from Jake Shortall‘s mouth), to those kinetic movement shots that look like something out of a dream, Lennox knows how to grab your attention. Dramatic imagery aside, Lennox can also create a classic black and white like none other, his simply beautiful shot of Ginta Lapina shows a whole other side.
