Double Vision: Comme des Garçons

November 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Some collections are made for editorial greatness, on the runway they’re good but when a talented team gets ahold of things the stories those garments can tell are limitless. One collection that has found new life editorially is Comme des Garcons‘ excellent fall/winter showing. The exaggerated proportions, bold patterns and plays on dimension have made for some truly striking imagery. Stylists seem to love playing with Rei Kawakubos artful creations, and there are a few looks that keep popping up in magazines month after month. Whether they’re worn by the likes of style legend Iris Apfel, transformed into samurai gear for Meghan Collison, or made part of David Sims‘ stark imagery, it is impossible to miss a CdG piece. Take a look back at some of the most memorable uses of the collection thus far and see how different stylists dealt with some of the more popular pieces.

McQueen’s Majesty

March 6th, 2012 |Posted by models.com

On the eve of the McQueen show, there isn’t a single designer more buzzed about than Sarah Burton. The romantic yet avant garde look she has crafted for the house have kept the brand going and more than lived up to the legacy of the late Lee Alexander McQueen himself. Interview goes in depth with the typically press shy Ms. Burton via a dialogue with another famous Sarah, actress Sarah Jessica Parker. The must read article is accompanied by some truly gorgeous images shot by Fabien Baron and David Burton, styled by Karl Templer, that capture the essence of all McQueen is about.

Image Adjustments

January 19th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With top models, A-List photographers and a fresh outlook, popular brands are redefining their image just in time for campaign season.

CALVIN KLEIN JEANS
PHOTOGRAPHY Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
STYLING Karl Templer
MODELS Arran SlyJoan SmallsLara StoneMatthew TerryMyles CrosbyToni Garrn

CK knows how to create an image filled with sex appeal and they’ve never shied away from pushing the envelope when it comes to visuals. CK Jeans’ ads are as much about the sex appeal of Lara Stone and Toni Garrn as they are about the brightly colored denim. Fabien Baron‘s creative direction keeps this M&M wet n’wild extravaganza on the sleek side, but make no mistake the line is out to turn up the heat with these shots.

TRUE RELIGION
PHOTOGRAPHY Alexi Lubomirski
STYLING Patti Wilson
MODELS Brad Kroenig, Tallulah Morton, Julia Dunstall & Alicia Rountree

Brad Kroenig as an easy rider? That’s a concept we can get behind. True Religion focuses on personality for Spring with ads themed around denim clad mavericks, wanderers and rebels. The American west plays a strong role in Alexi’s imagery as does Patti Wilson’s always inventive styling. Check out the behind the scenes video for a sense of the atmosphere on the day of the shoot.

JUICY COUTURE
PHOTOGRAPHY Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
STYLING Melanie Ward
MODELS Anna Selezneva

Juicy has pulled in heavy hitters Inez & Vinoodh to focus on the line’s fashionable side. Does Anna S. looking chic on the streets of Los Angeles make you forget about those ubiquitous velour sweatsuits? Maybe not, but I&V will always give you a great shot of a blonde tossing her hair.

TOPSHOP
PHOTOGRAPHY Josh Olins
STYLING Kate Phelan
MODELS Lara Mullen, Magda Laguinge & Marihenny Pasible

Two sides to every young woman – the glamorous diva and the girl next door, Topshop illustrates the concept via contrasting Olins images of the campaign’s fresh faces. It is impressive how high end Topshop’s fast fashion pieces look with the right styling. If we didn’t know better we’d swear that white dress on Marihenny was Versace…

DIESEL
PHOTOGRAPHY Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
STYLING Ludivine Poiblanc
MODELS Alison NixAshley SmithCatherine McNeilDmitriy TannerLiu WenMaria PalmPatrick Kafka & Simon Nessman

A massive robot, a dollhouse on fire, Catherine McNeil emerging from a potted plant, Diesel goes for the offbeat with their wide array of props and while we’re not sure what the overarching message behind this imagery is, but it is certainly striking.

Man Oh Man

July 16th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Let’s not forget some of our favorite men coming out this fall. Man of the season Oleg Antosik cuts a striking figure for cK Calvin Klein by Fabien Baron. The always in demand Sean O’Pry headlines a stellar and sophisticated cast of Mathias Bergh, Jake Davies and hot newcomer Corey Baptiste in a debonair DKNY Men campaign by Nathaniel Goldberg. You’ll be seeing much more of Nikola Jovanovic come fall, here’s a classic image of him by Emilio Tini for Gianfranco Ferre Eyewear. Ian O’Brien has been a recent editorial favorite; he breaks out here this season with his first major campaign for Marc by Marc Jacobs by perennial MJ lensman, Juergen Teller. Terron Wood showcases his versatility and dynamic moves for artist/director Robert Longo‘s turbulent Bottega Veneta campaign. All so different yet so marvelous. What catches your eye the most?
