The Valentino Vibe

July 22nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Master photographer David Bailey (Visual Artist UK ) has created some of the most iconic fashion imagery of all time and as lensman for the newest Valentino campaign Bailey brings an appealing simplicity to the black and white portraits of elegant fresh faces. Models Harleth KuusikMaartje VerhoefIne Neefs and Josephine Van Delden look regal in Bailey’s stately portraits, showing off the pop-art influenced collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. The end result is a campaign that eschews trendiness in favor of elegance and the kind of graceful imagery that will look just as fresh decades from now.

Americana

June 17th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Mikael Jansson takes a voyage upstate for a rustic editorial that pairs pieces from fashion’s most luxurious labels with a down home backdrop that speaks to America’s working class roots. Wearing Louis Vuitton and Prada to the local rail-station or back-alley isn’t an every day occurrence, but in the knowing hands of Karl Templer the pieces seem down to earth rather than lofty. As worn by the youthful cast led by Grace Hartzel, Tami Williams, Harleth Kuusik, Nastya Sten, Vanessa Moody, Waleska GorczevskiDani Witt and Julia Hafstrom these designer looks represent the dressed down uniform girls everywhere. With this story Interview Magazine adds another hit to this month’s impressive editorial lineup.

Mix + Match

April 1st, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

In fashion, a little daring goes a long way. Such is the case in this artful shoot from Jamie Hawkesworth, who brings his trademark eye for stark yet striking imagery to the pages of W’s April 2014 issue. Featuring Marine Deleeuw, Ashleigh Good, Harleth Kuusik, and Linn Arvidsson, Hawkesworth’s latest demonstrates the undeniable cool of fashion-forward contrasts. Combining Phoebe Philo’s Céline brushstrokes and Raf Simons’ “Trans Dior” prints with pieces by Gucci, Max Mara, and Vera Wang, Marie-Amélie Sauvé’s dynamic styling speaks for itself.

Hey, Big Spender!

March 14th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

Whetting your envy for retail therapy, British Vogue’s April issue follows a bevy of fresh faces as they embark upon a shopping fantasy along Paris’ storied Avenue Montaigne. Nigel Shafran shoots 9 rising girls—Estella Brons, Binx Walton, and Olympia Campbell among them—as they set to popping tags at fashion’s biggest brands, including Céline, Louis Vuitton, and Alaia. Snapping each girl at a different stage of the shopping ritual, the series finds Natalie Westling at David Chipperfield’s Valentino boutique and Ine Neefs hilariously praying before the window at Chanel. Though Irina Liss and Elodia Prieto are the only girls seen leaving stores with bags in tow, we can’t pity the others; styled by Joe McKenna, every girl, from Harleth Kuusik to Alewya Demmisse, looks like she owns the place. / See the full story on MAP

Proenza Perfection

January 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When you release one of the best collections of spring it’s only fitting that you follow it up with an equally appealing campaign. Jack McCollough + Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler enlist David Sims for atmospheric ads that capture the essence of the label’s runway show. Working with themes from technology’s merger with handcrafts, to nature and interiors, Sims creates a contrasting series of images that pop off the page. Marie Chaix (Art Partner) styles Charlotte Lindvig and Harleth Kuusik in straight from the runway looks, including those memorable metallic pleated skirts and exquisite copper breastplates. The sophisticated pieces stand out against the rustic background and the intimate feel of the campaign is only heightened once you learn it was shot on location at Jack & Lazaro’s Massachusetts home!

Hair by Didier Malige (Art Partner) | Makeup by Diane Kendal | Video by David Sims with Eddie the Wheel
