Vogue Italia Lines It Up

March 15th, 2016 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Vogue Italia is distorting silhouettes and exploring shapes in this surreal fashion editorial shot by Craig McDean. Hot List member Marland Backus plays muse to the colorful, kooky pieces selected by Alex White that certainly sway on the unconventional side. The new look is all about warped, slanted seams and dramatically daring pieces from Hood by Air, Céline, Vetements, LVMH Prize finalist Y/Project, even jewelry pieces from Marland herself make the cut. Swept-away flaxen waves defy gravity thanks to Shay Ashual while clean, strobe-lighted makeup is paired with etch-a-sketched drawings from the hands of Diane Kendal. Is the reward worth the risk? See for yourself below.

First Look: Document Journal

October 1st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

In the latest volume of Document Journal, stylist Olivier Rizzo delivers his magic touch, guest editing the magazine into a full on fashion folio with some of photography’s brightest stars and a who’s who cast of intriguing lens-worthy faces. The twelve, Rizzo-styled covers give a swatch sized glimpse into the accompanying editorials by Jamie HawkesworthCraig McDean, Wolfgang TillmansHarley WeirAlasdair McLellan and a whopping 7 by Willy Vanderperre. Editors Nick Vogelson & James Valeri‘s issue preface introduces Rizzo’s significance by saying, “His ingrained devotion to beauty— unconventional, sometimes ugly, and at times simple—led us to him, and him to us, as Document’s guest editor for this issue.” Inside, the exhaustive Vanderperre stories put on display his singularly cool perspective, while other majorly aesthetic imaginings, like Gareth McConnell‘s low-fi, hyper pop pictures or McDean’s fine-tuned shots of Lexi Boling, give another take on what’s current. Take an exclusive first look into the encompassing Olivier Rizzo edited issue with all 12 covers.

Miuccia’s World

June 19th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

One can imagine Miuccia Prada’s world “for the slightly disenfranchised” is filled with characters of an uncanny quality. In her designs there’s that murmur of jolie laide that fine-tunes weirdness and statement to resemble the regular (maybe it’s Miuccia’s mime training at work). Her fidelity to art-house actors has filled Prada and, the younger, more capricious, Miu Miu‘s campaigns regularly with a cinephile’s dream ensemble. The Italian empress has pulled from the silver screen A-list talent like James McAvoy, Dane Dehaan, Marine Vacth, and Elle Fanning for previous seasons and A/W 15 is true to form: Craig McDean lensed Scoot McNairy, Michael Shannon, and Tye Sheridan all uniformed in Prada menswear. The Miu Miu campaign photographed by Steven Meisel, entitled “Subjective Reality”, puts Maddison Brown, Hailey Gates, Mia Goth, Stacy Martin on the streets of New York City done up in Miu Miu wares. The images feature brand favorites and leads in Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac”  Mia and Stacy. See both campaigns below.

Change of Guard

June 10th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

As soon as Vanity Fair Italy previewed cover images from Vogue Italia’s “China” issue the internet was abuzz over the non-Meisel round-up of photographers– confirming the whispers that the storied lensman would longer shoot every cover. For models, having a VI cover by Steven Meisel served as a badge of honor and a telltale of imminent visibility.  Steven’s famous partiality for beautiful women and inimitable eye has forecasted and launched numerous careers. So needless to say, his absences after holding the fort since 1988 is big news.

For the the “China” issue, Vogue Italia enlisted Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and Steven Klein to help carry the weight of Meisel’s absence, shooting a cast of established Chinese beauties Fei Fei Sun, Xiao Wen JuJing Wen and newer faces like Yuan Bo Chao, Fernanda Ly and Gia Tang. Each cover bears the visual thumbprint from this league of extraordinary photographers: McDean’s romantic evocations; Sorrenti’s audacious arrangements; Mert and Marcus’ high-styled narratives and Klein’s surreal interpretations. Whether or not it’s enough to fill the void, the praise-worthy selection of models by these modern masters in celebration of China certainly stands on its own.

Through the Looking Glass

With an aura as ethereal as the coming spring breeze, Julia Nobis poses for the latest issue of Interview Magazine and the Spring 2015 Sacai campaign, the first for the cutting edge brand (finally out in print). Here she shows her effortless range appealing to both editorial and commercial audiences with her exquisitely beautiful presence and quirkiness. Teaming up for the two projects with photographer, Craig McDean, and super-stylist, Karl Templer, has resulted in inspiring harmony.

For Interview, Nobis brings the audience through the looking-glass, however cracked and tarnished it may be, to view the latest couture fashion from John Galliano‘s first creation for Maison Martin Margiela to Valentino‘s gilded wares.
