Age of Innocence

July 16th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

The latest issue of Vogue Italia celebrates beauty at any age and features a wide range of influential women shot by some of the greatest photographers in the business. The champion of women of all ages, Steven Meisel returns (that was quick!) with the cover story capturing prolific modeling veterans like Donna Jordan, Erin O’Connor, Frankie Rayder, Sasha Pivovarova, Yasmin Warsame, and their new-school, supermodel-progeny counterparts Anna Cleveland, Kaia Gerber, and Sasha P’s adorable toddler, Mia Isis Vishnyakov. The various range of ages shot by Meisel challenges society’s propensity for ageism in a delightfully refreshing way.

Bruce Weber continues the theme with “Leaders of the Pack” that highlights women that have made an impact culturally like Cheryl Tiegs, Marianne Faithfull, Pat Cleveland, and Penelope Tree. Francesco Carrozzini glams up the incomparable model and personality Heidi Klum for beauty portraits that show the veteran in all her alluring glory. Michel Comte rounds it up with his take on the theme with “Women of Today” featuring some of the most prolific actresses, models, choreographers, & artists with appearances from Anjelica Huston, Tatjana Patitz, Karen Alexander, & Claudia Mason.

Blast from the Past: Claude Montana

November 9th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Looking back on the season that was and some of the runway proportion plays, we started to think back to the larger than life silhouettes of the 1980s. Back when a shoulder pad was de rigueur you couldn’t open up a fashion magazine without seeing the incredible designs of Claude Montana. Focusing on exquisite construction, luxurious materials and of course shape, Montana’s eponymous label flourished from 1979 until 1997, and for two years in the early nineties he even held down the reigns at Lanvin and yes there was life before Alber.

The amount of designers who namecheck Montana as an inspiration is staggering, the late Alexander McQueen cited him as a primary influence and numerous others owe a great deal to Montana’s inventive spirit. Take a trip back to the past with a glimpse at some incredible House of Montana pieces, as worn by top models of the era. The clothes may be over 20 years old, but notice how relevant and modern they still seem – the ruffled skirt on the red suit wouldn’t seem out of place on this season’s Balenciaga runway, the oversized shearling jacket would work with today’s Rag & Bone and that dramatic white column for Lanvin, could appear on any red carpet today and be completely refreshing.
