Dior’s Darlings

July 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Willy Vanderperre (Art Partner) and Raf Simons join forces once again for Dior‘s fall campaign creating an atmosphere of simple pleasures and girlish delights. Led by Julia Nobis and Fei Fei Sun the ads focus on a group of glamorous femmes in a classic Parisian flat, enjoying conversation, a glass of wine and of course designs from Simons’ ladylike collection. Helena Severin and Kasia Jujeczka join the fun sporting bar bags and the ubiquitous lace-up pieces that made the show so memorable. In the accompanying film the ads come to life, a techno beat pumping as the girls laugh, pose and move around the stylishly appointed apartment.

Serene Escape

June 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

It may be winter down under, but Will Davidson creates a tropical fantasy for the new issue of Vogue Australia. Amanda Wellsh plays the part of elegant castaway in a selection of looks chosen by Christine Centenera. Heading off he beaten path in Dior and Chloe might not be practical in real life, but the cinematic scope of Davidson’s imagery makes the concept seem ideal. Even when grasping a walking stick, or wading through the ocean waves on the back of a horse Amanda never loses her glamorous edge.

Psychedelic Versailles

June 12th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

For their latest fragrance commercial, Dior continues its collaboration with some of the hottest names in the film industry. Following Sofia Coppola and Natalie Portman’s girlish videos for the Miss Dior fragrance, the storied French fashion house tapped indie visionary Harmony Korine, of Kids (1995) and Spring Breakers (2013) fame, to shoot campaign star Sasha Luss in a hypnotic promo for the brand styled by Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele. The clip, at just over a minute, combines found-footage aesthetics, digital animations, and a sampling from South African rap duo Die Antwoord to conjure a psychedelic scene. Sasha, barefoot in Raf Simons’ Spring ‘14 couture collection, revels like Alice in Wonderland lost at Versailles, striking a winning balance for the brand’s fresh yet classic look.

Sense of Midnight

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

In most metallic themed editorials the reflective shades are depicted as bold and bright, bursting off the page but Sean and Seng (Management + Artists) offer up a fresh take on the seasons shimmering pieces in the pages Vogue Japan. Focusing on the subtle glimmer of fabric as viewed beneath moonlight, the duo along with stylist Sissy Vian (Management + Artists) capture decadent looks from Dior, Proenza Schouler, Gucci and Haider Ackermann beneath the pale moonlight in a rowboat set adrift in murky waters. Karmen Pedaru plays the role of siren admirably, wearing each look with ease even as a serpent coils around her body.

Mix + Match

April 1st, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

In fashion, a little daring goes a long way. Such is the case in this artful shoot from Jamie Hawkesworth, who brings his trademark eye for stark yet striking imagery to the pages of W’s April 2014 issue. Featuring Marine Deleeuw, Ashleigh Good, Harleth Kuusik, and Linn Arvidsson, Hawkesworth’s latest demonstrates the undeniable cool of fashion-forward contrasts. Combining Phoebe Philo’s Céline brushstrokes and Raf Simons’ “Trans Dior” prints with pieces by Gucci, Max Mara, and Vera Wang, Marie-Amélie Sauvé’s dynamic styling speaks for itself.
