Quantcast

The Outsiders

April 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion relies on outcasts, originals and those with a voracious need for what’s next – Dazed & Confused‘s latest issue salutes those visionary spirits. A Givenchy clad Mariacarla Boscono graces the first cover in an arresting image styled by Panos Yiapanis. Sporting multiple piercings and a wealth of sequins paired with simple tartans in Willy Vanderperre (Art Partner)’s cover shot, Mariacarla serves as the perfect representation of fashion fearlessness. The eternally cool Jamie Bochert sports archival Ann Demeulemeester styled by Katy England on her cover for an apt depiction of the nonchalant edginess Demeulemeester’s label embodies. Celebrated Belgian actors Matthias Schoenaerts and Veerle Baetens feature on two limited edition covers also shot by Vanderperre and styled by Robbie Spencer. The famous duo serve as the start of an epic 50 page fashion story dedicated to the rise of the Belgian underground and its cultural impact.

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.

December 20th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

On the runway Prada’s Spring/Summer mix of car motifs and couch cushion patterns veered towards camp, but in Steven Meisel‘s stunning campaign imagery the very same looks are the perfect blend of elegance and kitsch. Only the very best campaigns can make you rethink a collection, by bringing out its essence. In Meisel’s shots Ymre StiekemaMeghan CollisonKatryn KrugerNatasha Poly & Elise Crombez preen at a gas station on vintage hotrods whose “spiky rear fins and bodies emblazoned with flames reflect the design motifs in the collection.” Press releases aside, the girls are phenomenal, the clothes are elevated to a new threshold and the chunky necklaces from the brand new jewelry collection look like a dream.
