Quantcast

The Outsiders

April 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion relies on outcasts, originals and those with a voracious need for what’s next – Dazed & Confused‘s latest issue salutes those visionary spirits. A Givenchy clad Mariacarla Boscono graces the first cover in an arresting image styled by Panos Yiapanis. Sporting multiple piercings and a wealth of sequins paired with simple tartans in Willy Vanderperre (Art Partner)’s cover shot, Mariacarla serves as the perfect representation of fashion fearlessness. The eternally cool Jamie Bochert sports archival Ann Demeulemeester styled by Katy England on her cover for an apt depiction of the nonchalant edginess Demeulemeester’s label embodies. Celebrated Belgian actors Matthias Schoenaerts and Veerle Baetens feature on two limited edition covers also shot by Vanderperre and styled by Robbie Spencer. The famous duo serve as the start of an epic 50 page fashion story dedicated to the rise of the Belgian underground and its cultural impact.

Cover Confidential

March 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Feburary and March are big business for fashion magazines with glossies often debuting some of their best and brightest content during these months focused on spring collections, renewal and change. Take a look back at some of the most interesting covers from the boundlessly creative, to the simply beautiful.

PURE BEAUTY

Antidote Magazine‘s romance issue boasted multiple covers by Cuneyt Akeroglu featuring some of the world’s most beautiful women. United by their simple yet effective photography and their chic take on the magazine’s pristine subjects these covers were something special.

As one of fashion’s coolest faces Leona Binx Walton is typically photographed looking grungy, avant garde or off-kilter. Her Self Service cover with it’s effective beauty statement and clean layout showed another side. Collier Schorr portrait brings out Binx’s beauty, while maintaining her character.

THE BEST OF CELEBRITY

There are few actresses as effervescent as Marion Cotillard and Interview Magazine‘s March cover captured the La Vie En Rose star’s elegant side with a shot by Craig McDean that positively crackles with good ol’ fashioned glamour. Styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Christophe Danchaud and a 40s coif by Sam McKnight the image strikes the right balance between retro film siren and modern glamour - as does the accompanying fashion story. 

On the flip side, Dazed & Confused‘s rough and tumble cover of Scarlett Johansson finds the star’s inner bad girl and brings it to the forefront with a vibrant shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby . The combo of red background and Saint Laurent biker jacket and Scar-Jo’s glare makes for an appealing contrast to the typical smiling celebrity glamour shot.

MINIMAL MARVELS

You can’t go wrong with a picture of Daria Werbowy and The Last Magazine served up an epic large format image the superstar looking foreboding for it’s spring issue –  Mikael Jansson‘s in your face shot captures Werbowy at her rawest and best.

The Gentlewoman always errs on the side of minimalism, but the pulpy red cover of Vivienne Westwood by Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) was the perfect merger of timelessness and modernity.

CREATIVITY RULES

Nick Knight‘s trippy photography has always struck a chord with surrealists and on the cover of GARAGE‘s spring/summer edition he twists and morphs Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne into unbidden creatures designs that were eventually tattooed onto the skin of Garage readers – how’s that for taking things to the next level.

E.T. got a fashion makeover with Lindsey Wixson taking over the frontpage of CR Fashion Book with an expressive Sebastian Faena image that puts Wixson’s otherworldly visage to good use with a sweet nod to an 80s favorite.

DESIGNER DOMINATION

Karl Lagerfeld’s watercolor inspired spring Chanel collection has proved a hit with editors, in addition to appearing in the pages of just about every magazine imaginable his paint by numbers dresses found themselves on a variety of covers in March, most notably Vogue China, where two of the designer’s creations took center stage.

Not one to be outdone, Miuccia Prada also made a strong showing this March (and April) with a variety of painterly spring looks from her collections showing up on the cover of several different magazines.

Love Lottie

January 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Kate Moss is one of the greatest models of all time so it is no surprise that her sister, Lottie Moss is every bit as fetching. Sean and Seng shoot the lovely newcomer for her very first published story,  a special Dazed & Confused editorial shot on the streets of London. Styled by Robbie Spencer and featuring an assortment of chic yet sweet pieces, the story makes for an appealing debut. Though she’s got a bit of the Moss attitude Lottie brings her own charms to Sean and Seng’s expressive images. Looks like we have the makings of a modeling dynasty on our hands.

See the full feature including an interview with Lottie on Dazed Digital

El Bambi

October 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Never underestimate the power of a well placed bit of cartoon magic; each season Riccardo Tisci comes up with at least one Givenchy must have that makes a splash and for the last few months its been all about Bambi. The opening look of the designer’s critically lauded fall collection was a Disney inspired sweatshirt that added touch of twee to the typically hard-edged Givenchy look and instantly became a cult status symbol. The signature piece has been making waves in magazines of late with the Bambi shirt appearing on the cover of Vogue Japan, the newly launched Miss Vogue AustraliaVogue China and Madame Figaro, not to mention inside appearances in i-D Magazine & V Magazine. Add in the fact that this little number has also been spotted on the backs of everyone from Beyoncé Knowles to Carine Roitfeld and you have the makings of a moment.
