Prada’s Cool Kitsch Posse

November 6th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For their latest campaign, Prada enlists a sought-after bunch to pose their fabulously kitsch resort collection for the lens of Steven Meisel. The prettified posse features the likes of Meghan Collison and Julia Nobis, already in a league of their own, to on the rise, newcomer Ina Maribo Jensen. Styled by Olivier Rizzo, the boldly patterned pieces pretty much show-off themselves against the metallic background, but the wanted faces of fashion make it more.  Beauty team  Guido Palau and Pat McGrath add some extra impact with generous curls and a dark emphasized eye. An accompanying video by Gordon von Steiner brings the collection to life with additional attitude.

The Sun Also Rises

April 20th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

In a new sultry film by Gordon von Steiner, the season’s most wanted faces Sarah Brannon, Nastya Sten, Hedvig Palm, Clementine Deraedt, Issa Lish, and Josephine Le Tutour float sensually about in gossamer wedding gowns by Vera Wang ushered by the adagio pulsing of a violin. The svelte brides, styled by Victoria Mesenbrink, are flushed and rosy courtesy of Bok Hee and Marla Belt. Between the on point casting and seductive cinematography von Steiner captures a romanticism and Hemingway-esque headiness at the Hotel Madrid.
