A Singular Beauty

April 9th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

It’s always a thrill to see a fresh face land her first major cover. Nominating Maria Borges for the May 2014 cover, Vogue Portugal takes a minimal approach and lets the rising model’s incredible features stand out. Following up back-to-back knockout turns on the Fall RTW and Spring Couture runways, Maria embodies demure elegance in a pared down cover shoot by photographer Rui Aguiar. Styled by Paulo Macedo in looks from Prada, Alaia, and Maison Martin Margiela, Maria shows off the singular grace that’s already made her a favorite at Dior, Tom Ford, and Givenchy. Adding this stunning series to her growing repertoire, this Angolan beauty is sure to have a bright future ahead of her.

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.

Campaigns Continued!

January 17th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

J.W. ANDERSON

Jamie Hawkesworth shoots a stark black and white campaign that highlights the youthful cast and the sculptural details of Anderson’s appealing spring collection. The clothes are in the forefront where they belong and the unique details seem even more impressive here than they did on the runway.

ALBERTA FERRETTI

Peter Lindbergh and Mariacarla Boscono reunite for Alberta Ferretti’s elegant spring images. Lindbergh’s masterful use of light brings the collection to life, highlighting the rich color and exquisite embroidery. Mariacarla provides a regal presence, particularly in that stellar shot with the emerald green gown.

HERMES

You’ll be hard presssed to find a more lush campaign this season than Hermes. The luxury house heads to the rainforest with a greenery filled and almost otherworldly series of images from Hans Silvester, a photographer known for his impressive fine art shots of natural settings and exotic locations. Diana Moldovan, Estee Rammant, Yumi Lambert and Sean O’Pry feature in Silvester’s captivating images.

DIOR

A great collection deserves a great campaign and Raf Simons’ expansive spring collection gets the royal treatment by Willy Vanderperre (Art Partner). A multi-generational cast of top models featuring Stella Tennant, Edie Campbell, Julia Nobis and Elise Crombez poses in Vanderperre’s contrasting series of photos – black and white portraits on one side and candy colored full body shots on the other – the better to show off those exquisite Dior pieces and this phenomenal lineup of women.

Galliano Guest

October 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The controversial former Dior designer features alongside Kate in Tim Walker‘s vintage inspired cover story and brings his flair for drama to the pages sporting a top-hat & tails in Walker’s high flying images.

First Lady

October 29th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The most surprising thing about W Magazine‘s FLOTUS inspired fashion story starring Naomi Campbell is that it took so long to appear. MIchelle Obama has been global tastemaker for years so it seems only natural that one of the industry’s leading publications would find editorial inspiration in her signature style. Willy Vanderperre‘s photographs always have a quiet beauty and his style works well here, while Edward Enninful perfectly captures Mrs. Obama’s streamlined sophistication with his styling. Using a mix of demure pieces from Nina RicciGiorgio ArmaniPrada and Dior, Enninful creates a wardrobe fit for a first lady. As always Naomi is a pro in front of the camera and radiates poise in every shot.
