Banal Plus

July 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The normcore trend has been the subject of much debate – is it chic, is it lazy, is it even a legitimate trend at all? Craig McDean and Edward Enninful take on the look in the pages of W Magazine with an editorial that mixes the best in designer gear with everyday staples like Adidas tube socks and white clogs – the kind of items you’re more likely to find in the closets of athletes than amongst the accessories utilized in a fashion story. With boy short bowl cuts by James Pecis (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management) and minimal makeup by Fulvia Farolfi (ArtList Paris) models Daiane ConteratoGrace MaharyAymeline ValadeManuela FreyKatlin AasAmanda Murphy and Fei Fei Sun look equal parts haute and banal.

First Look: Stockholm S/S/A/W

May 8th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With four gorge covers shot by Kai Z Fengstyled by Tom Van Dorpe, and art directed by Jakob Hysén Hedberg,the latest issue of  Stockholm S/S/A/W Magazine packs an instantaneous punch. The stark yet elegant shots of Aline WeberNimue SmitShu Pei and Hailey Clauson are haunting and beautiful – not to mention a nice change from all the over-saturated colors we’ve been seeing on covers lately. Inside the content is top notch, with new stories from photography’s young guard featuring a selective edit of stylish pieces chosen by Oscar Lange. We’re particularly partial to those menswear looks on the back of Frida Gustavsson, but take a look inside Stockholm S/S/A/W yourself with our preview.

January 19th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Dazed and Confused‘s latest issue pays tribute to the Asian fashion explosion with a beautiful story by Ben Toms. Muted colors and sharp silhouettes are a recurring theme, but Robbie Spencer‘s ornate styling is the standout. Daiane Conterato, Jaco van den Hoven & Willy Cartier look like works of art in Toms’ striking images.
