Tough Enough

August 28th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Bad girls do it well in the pages of Numero‘s September issue. Greg Kadel unleashes a sexy and in your face story styled by Elizabeth Sulcer, featuring the season’s hardcore looks. While only the most daring fashionistas will take to the streets in bondage gear and studded masks, the story’s mix of Chanel, Fendi and Tom Ford is sure to appeal to luxe lovers from all walks of life. Even the most vanilla fashionistas can appreciate the appeal of black leather and thigh high boots as worn by the stunning Larissa Hofmann.

A Healthy Obsession

June 4th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Whenever Steven Meisel and Gisele Bundchen join forces for Vogue Italia you know you’re in for a treat. The June issue delves into beauty with a satirical look at the pleasures of primping – from your basic treatments and manicures, to controversial extremes like the much discussed ‘vampire’ facial. Meisel shoots in his signature high gloss style, while Lori Goldstein mixes in pieces from Louis VuittonFendi alongside a few larger-than-life Chanel Joaillerie sparklers. Given the subject matter the dream team of Pat McGrathGuido Palau and Jin Soon Choi are naturally a big part of the action – their elegant touch keeps Gisele looking flawless, even in the middle of chemical peels and deep conditioning masks.

Editorial Inspiration: Mona & Millicent

July 12th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

In addition to designing for Chanel, Fendi, his eponymous line, shooting editorials, traveling the world and elevating his cat to superstar status, Karl Lagerfeld also manages to be something of a fashion historian. Look at his work you’ll see references to countless bygone eras and sartorial icons of yesteryear. In his latest story for Harper’s Bazaar, Lagerfeld looks to legendary American socialites Mona von Bismarck & Millicent Rogers, women so revered for their good taste that whole museum collections exist to catalogue their stylish lives. Imagining a fictional meeting between the two legends, Lagerfeld creates sumptuous images overloaded with decadent ensembles.

With a shock of silver hair and a penchant for labels like Balenciaga, Givenchy and Vionnet, Mona was one of the most celebrated style icons of her time. Immortalized by Dali and Truman Capote. She’s brought to life in the story by Anja Rubik, in a series of dramatic looks chosen by Andrew Richardson. The glamorous Millicent Rogers, Standard Oil Heiress and toast of NY society, favored esoteric lines like Schiaparelli and Valentina, mixed in with standards from Mainbocher & Charles James; Melissa Tammerijn plays the blond beauty with grace in Lagerfeld’s story.

Campaign Confidential

July 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The ads keep on coming, check out a few more of our faves from the season – take a look back at our previous campaign favorites post too.

Balenciaga

While we can’t imagine either Nicolas Ghesquière or Steven Meisel spending a lazy weekend at the shore, the Balenciaga campaign is set in such an idyll. Fresh faces Anniek KortleveLinn ArvidssonHirschy HirschfelderJulier BuggeJuliet Ingleby and Rosie Tapner lay out on the dunes in those eccentric looks from F/W.

Chanel

Simple, clean and led by a stellar cast, Chanel’s fresh ads feature Kati Nescher, Lindsey Wixson & Cora Emmanuel as styled by Carine Roitfeld. Naturally, Karl Lagerfeld is behind the camera – which depending on your perspective you either love or hate, that said the casting on this is flaw free.

Dolce & Gabbana

A taste of Italian nostalgia shot by Giampaolo Sgura and featuring Monica Bellucci, Bianca Balti and Bianca Brandolini – each image feels like a still from a Pasolini film.

Valentino

Valentino once again gives us a vision of pure class from the iconic Deborah Turbeville. Elegantly color coordinated looks on Jac JagaciakCaroline Brasch Nielsen and Frida Gustavsson - what’s not to love?

Fendi

When you have Joan Smalls and Karl Lagerfeld you don’t really need much else. With the natural setting and powerful poses, this new ads remind us a bit of Anja Rubik‘s S/S 10 ads for the luxe line.
