Past Meets Present: The Mod Moment

January 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

By its very nature, fashion is in a constant state of change, but the industry has a way of rehashing the past every few seasons with collections that draw inspiration from key moments in fashion’s history.  Nostalgia was the predominant fashion mode of the aughts, and it saw  designers revisiting everything from 1920s flapper fixtures, to ’80s powerdressing and (gasp) ’90s grunge redux. We may have just entered into 2013, but when it comes to manufacturing clothing that looks awfully similar to styles that could have been worn generations earlier, designers show no signs of stopping.

Case in point, S/S 13′s mod moment, which saw a wealth of graphic prints invading the runway. Checks, stripes, and houndstooth patterns  made appearances on the runways of labels like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana, offering a pleasant alternative to spring’s tried-and-true florals and providing a bit of deja vu. Granted, these design elements are timeless, but fans of ’60s style will recognize the cuts and patterns that make up these new designs as the hallmarks of mod innovators. Take a look at  the work of Pierre Cardin, Mary Quant, André Courrèges, and Ossie Clark,  and you can’t help but see where Marc Jacobs and co. took their lead from.

With the very same designs getting major play in the pages of this month’s magazines, editors have been showcasing these looks in a variety of ways. Most choose to play up the retro appeal inherent in these collections by creating stories reminiscent of days past: what says ’60s more than an angular Vidal Sasson bob or an oversized bouffant? Others focus in on the graphic element, shooting the pieces against white backdrops and playing up the contrast.

The Look of Benjamin Lennox

May 7th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

There is no shortage of young photography talent on the scene, but it takes a lot to stand out from the fray. Lately we’ve been noticing the dynamic work of Benjamin Lennox and his uniquely arresting style. With images that are sharp, sleek and striking, Lennox has carved out a niche for himself, shooting for magazines like 10 Men Magazine, Muse Magazine and VMan.

His latest story, Chromatic for 10 Men is an expressive feast for the eyes, that captures everything we’re loving about his style. From the creative use of accessories & props that give the portraits an off-kilter feel (note the precisely placed rose petals dangling from Jake Shortall‘s mouth), to those kinetic movement shots that look like something out of a dream, Lennox knows how to grab your attention. Dramatic imagery aside, Lennox can also create a classic black and white like none other, his simply beautiful shot of Ginta Lapina shows a whole other side.

Clean Sweep

June 16th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Ginta Lapina plays housemaid in Greg Kadel‘s tongue in cheek story for Vogue Germany. While were certain that no one really dusts their home in head to toe Miu Miu while wearing sky high heels, Ginta looks ravishing all the same. The retro curls by Peter Gray, Nicola Knels‘s on point styling and pastel makeup by Itsuki make for one slightly off kilter, yet very cute editorial.
