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.

July 14th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

The goth-girl mob is back with major attitude for the latest Alexander Wang campaign. Shot by longtime Wang collaborator Steven Klein, and styled by Karl Templer, the ad with creative direction by Pascal Dangin of KiDS Creative, features a moody flock of model and artistic muses — Anna Ewers, Binx Walton, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Isabella Emmack, Lexi Boling, Molly Bair, and Sarah Brannon — as well as singer Alice Glass and the Japanese dance duo AyaBambi, fresh off a Madonna video appearance. The fashionable clan effortlessly sulk in studded frocks and platform creepers aligned with perfected visages, courtesy of beauty team Anthony Turner and Mark Carrasquillo. This crew is not to be trifled with!

Break the Internet

December 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Leave it to Alexander Wang and Steven Klein (Art Partner) to take us back to the days when a denim ad could cause an international incident. If fashion advertising has seemed tame in recent years, the sight of a stripped down Anna Ewers sporting nothing more than a pair of inky blue Wang jeans pooled around her ankles is sure to set things right. With a provocative perspective and fearless take on female sensuality, Klein creates instantly an instant classic of in your face advertising that is sure to be hotly debated.

Proenza’s Pulse

July 10th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Proenza Schouler ‘s fall campaign kicks off with a bang, David Sims shoots show opener Julia Bergshoeff in the duo’s kinetic designs for a striking set of images. In the capable hands of Marie Chaix (Art Partner) the collection comes to life the black and white patterns popping against the bright background. The effervescent, Ron Nagle influenced autumn collection explored ideas about action and motion and those themes repeat here. Bleached brows courtesy of Diane Kendal and a sleek coif by Guido Palau complete the vibe to create a look worthy of Jack & Lazaro’s cool girls.

Deep Dark

March 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Who better to explore the gothic side of fashion than the illustrious team of Craig McDean, Karl Templer and Sasha Pivovarova. With an eye for the atypical and a brooding ferocity that works it’s way into every image, the team creates an expressive vision with a dark twist in the pages of Interview Magazine. With pieces from Alexander McQueenLouis Vuitton and Tom Ford the story focuses on larger than life fashion, rejecting the convention that Spring stories need to be light, bright and filled with saccharine florals. With an inky black coif courtesy of Orlando Pita and understated makeup by Diane Kendal, Sasha is appropriately spooky and adds flair to McDean’s dramatic images.

Proenza Perfection

January 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When you release one of the best collections of spring it’s only fitting that you follow it up with an equally appealing campaign. Jack McCollough + Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler enlist David Sims for atmospheric ads that capture the essence of the label’s runway show. Working with themes from technology’s merger with handcrafts, to nature and interiors, Sims creates a contrasting series of images that pop off the page. Marie Chaix (Art Partner) styles Charlotte Lindvig and Harleth Kuusik in straight from the runway looks, including those memorable metallic pleated skirts and exquisite copper breastplates. The sophisticated pieces stand out against the rustic background and the intimate feel of the campaign is only heightened once you learn it was shot on location at Jack & Lazaro’s Massachusetts home!

Step Into Spring

December 21st, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Spring’s fresh campaigns keep coming in – take a look at the latest and tell us which are your favorites!

Mariacarla Boscono for Yves Saint Laurent by David Sims

Sporting streamlined eyebrows by Diane Kendal and short bangs Guido Palau, Mariacarla looks strong and sexy in David Sims’ campaign for the mega-brand. After over a decade of campaigns helmed by either Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin or Juergen Teller Sims’ sleek style feels fresh.

Gisele Bundchen for Givenchy by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

Life’s a beach for the Givenchy girl and Tisci’s surf & scuba inspired collection shines on the backs of Gisele Bundchen & brand muse Mariacarla Boscono. Posing alongside boogie boards in M&M’s subdued shots, the duo looks chic albeit slightly grim. After last season’s aggressive ads this is an interesting change of pace.

Kasia Struss for Moschino by Juergen Teller

The Moschino travel diary continues; this season the brand jets to Rome to create some classic Italian ambiance complete with vintage Fiats circling Kasia Struss and the Colosseum as a backdrop. Viva Moschino!

Raquel Zimmermann for Nina Ricci by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin

The Nina Ricci sensibility has always been about feminine & ethereal designs. Inez & Vinoodh’s campaign images capture that ideal with a shot of Raquel Zimmermann rushing across the hall in a Peter Copping designed gown fit for a princess.

After Hours

August 9th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Just what are Saskia de Brauw and Marique Schimmel up to in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott‘s moody Gucci-centric story for Interview? Late nights in the park, cavorting with a mysterious man (who just so happens to be Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan) dressed to the nines in Frida Gianinni‘s 70s inspired collection: it all looks glam, but just a little seedy.
