Double Vision: Comme des Garçons

November 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Some collections are made for editorial greatness, on the runway they’re good but when a talented team gets ahold of things the stories those garments can tell are limitless. One collection that has found new life editorially is Comme des Garcons‘ excellent fall/winter showing. The exaggerated proportions, bold patterns and plays on dimension have made for some truly striking imagery. Stylists seem to love playing with Rei Kawakubos artful creations, and there are a few looks that keep popping up in magazines month after month. Whether they’re worn by the likes of style legend Iris Apfel, transformed into samurai gear for Meghan Collison, or made part of David Sims‘ stark imagery, it is impossible to miss a CdG piece. Take a look back at some of the most memorable uses of the collection thus far and see how different stylists dealt with some of the more popular pieces.

Brit Wit

February 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

British Vogue always manages to feature some of our favorite girls in decidedly different ways. This month the mag transforms ethereal gypsy Abbey Lee Kershaw into a 60s siren, gives Zuzanna Bijoch the minimalist treatment and provides Karlie Kloss with entry into a world of pure kitsch. The dramatic, colorful and just slightly kooky stories, make for an especially strong issue and the perfect compliment to that candy colored Lana Del Rey cover.

The retro vibe of Abbey Lee Kershaw‘s dreamy story by by Alasdair McLellan is enhanced by the fact that it was shot in Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor’s former home: Francesca Burns‘ styling really shines here.

Zuzanna Bijoch‘s severe shots by David Sims feature standout pieces from BalenciagaComme des Garcons and Miu Miu selected by none other than Joe McKenna.

The Mario Testino helmed meditation on excess is filled with patterns, prints and other forms of opulent ornamentation chosen by Lucinda Chambers and worn by Karlie Kloss.
