Mystical Season

January 30th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The artistry of the season’s most talked about collections comes to the pages of  Vogue Japan in an expressive story by Paolo Roversi. Starring a trio of white-hot platinum blonde beauties and featuring several of the season’s most esoteric collections, the story provides an appealing roundup of spring’s detail oriented designs.  Maja Salamon, Ola Rudnicka and Sasha Luss feature in Roversi’s images wearing pattern heavy pieces selected by Nicoletta Santoro (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) and sporting intense glares. The only thing more alluring than the girls are all those exquisite collection separates – CélinePradaMarniGivenchy and even a touch of fashion’s print master, Dries Van Noten.

East Meets West

November 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Asia and its diverse cultures have long had an unmistakable impact on the industry, but in recent years the influence has been especially prevalent. The growth of the Asian market and the rise of a new generation of influential Asian talents has prompted designers and photographers to look East in search of inspiration. The F/W runways were filled with pieces whose details seemed cribbed from traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean fashions. Two fresh editorials showcase the season’s East Asian-inspired fashions in uniquely beautiful ways.

First Fabien Baron reinterprets the myth of the samurai in Interview with a striking and suitably stark story that owes as much to history as it does to larger-than-life, action-packed anime. Meghan Collison stars in Baron’s expressive fantasy and brandishes a katana as she poses in looks from Haider Ackermann, Gareth Pugh, and Issey Miyake. Karl Templer‘s styling prowess is on full display, even as he mixes together the perfect modern approximation of the samurai look. | View the full story on Interview.com

Vogue China‘s interpretation is no less elegant, but the approach is softer and sexier. Karim Sadli shoots the always alluring Liu Wen in pieces that focus on rich embroidery and detailed pattern. Set against the refined backdrop of an airy drawing room and featuring a host of Balmain, Proenza, and Dries van Noten selected by Alastair McKimm, the story offers an alternative imagining of this look. There are no well-dressed warriors or brandished swords, just a beautiful girl looking especially chic.

Modern minimalism with a shot of color reigns supreme in Josh Olins‘s sleek British Vogue story. Styled by Lucinda Chambers and featuring heaps of Celine, Marni and Dries Van Noten, the story represents a thinking woman’s idea of chic, an ideal encapsulated in the striking Suvi Koponen. Pared down hair & makeup by Samantha Hillerby and Samantha Bryant, completes the look with style and panache.

Dont Miss: “Garments, Lightscapes”

January 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Art and fashion collided in Dries Van Noten‘s spring collection: look closely at the dresses, skirts and jackets and you’ll see photographer James Reeve‘s beautiful series ‘Lightscapes’ emblazoned throughout. Van Noten wanted to create a collection with prints comprised only of things that “were not made to be printed on fabric.” Dries had first noticed Reeves’ work while presiding over the fashion jury at Festival d’Hyères and sought him out specifically. Fittingly the duo’s collaboration has graced museums in Vienna, Hong Kong and Tokyo. Now the exhibition comes to Paris’ Joyce Gallery, with an opening reception tonight and a exhibition until the 25th of January. Don’t miss it!

Independent Spirit

November 4th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

With its irreverent sensibility and lack of pretension, HUSK Magazine stands out as one of the best indie publications on the scene. The fall issue (out now) focuses on the theme of new contexts. Unlike other mags for whom that idea is little more than a soundbyte, HUSK explores the scene’s latest developments with wit and candor. Inside you’ll find a wealth of striking photography from names you ought to write down and several spot on articles about everything from Raf Simons and Dries Van Noten, to an informed interview with artist François Halard.

Accessorize It!

July 30th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

There is always something delightful about a nice accessories edit and Raymond Meier‘s collaborations with Elissa Santisi for Vogue set the bar. Filled with bright colors and killer pieces the duo’s stories are sometimes the most fun thing in the entire magazine. This month’s offering is no exception: Mixed Media features rising Vogue favorite  Anais Mali  sporting some of the season’s true standouts : take a look at those glitter encrusted silver ankle boots by Miu Miu or the killer python slingbacks from Dries Van Noten.
