Industrious

February 3rd, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Meisel plays with various styles for his Vogue Italia covers, but many of the best have a cinematic quality that makes them appear like stills from a motion picture. Meisel’s photography is energetic, richly detailed and often seems ready to start moving the moment some unseen director yells “Action!” The February cover of VI is a prime example of this a Dolce & Gabbana clad Lexi Boling may be the first thing to grab your attention, but each detail adds to the story. The sewing machines in the background, Mary Howard‘s comprehensive set design and even the blur of men moving all around Lexi. It all makes for a stunning tribute to fashion workers anchored by Marie-Amélie Sauvé styling, Pat McGrath doing makeup and Jimmy Paul handling hair.

Spanish Influence

December 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Dolce & Gabbana‘s seasonal campaigns always bring Sicilian culture to the forefront with Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana transporting us back to the old country with Mediterranean scenes fit for Fellini. For Spring the designers merge traditions with a campaign centered around Spain’s influence on Sicily. Domenico Dolce‘s images utilize familiar iconography – matadors, mantillas and the elegance of flamenco, to create photographs that are steeped in tradition, yet appealingly minimal. There is an abundance of print, pattern and glitz (this is a Dolce & Gabbana campaign after all) but the pared down backdrop of patinated walls and rustic architecture keeps our attentions on the decadent clothes and beautiful cast. House favorite Bianca Balti is joined by Vittoria Ceretti, Blanca Padilla, Irina Sharipova, Travis Cannata, Xavier Serrano and Misa Patinszki, but the real scene stealers are the dashing bullfighter, José Maria Manzanares and a trio of grinning grandmas who bring a touch of whimsy to every shot they appear in.
