The Ideal

November 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

At the end of every year Vogue Paris selects an star to guest edit and serve as the inspiration behind a special issue. In the past everyone from Tom Ford to Carla Bruni and John Galliano has taken on the role but for 2015 the magazine snags an icon of French culture to serve as the guiding force for the December/January edition. As a model, muse and enduringly stylish presence on the fashion scene Ines de la Fressange represents for many the ideal of the chic Parisienne woman. We can’t think of a better person to see on the frontpage of Vogue Paris and in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) striking stylized shots de la Fressange shows she’s still a force in front of the camera.

Blast from the Past: Mirabella

January 15th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The news is always going on about the death of print, but what happens when a familiar favorite magazine really does go away forever? Fans of 90s fashion will fondly remember Mirabella, sitting on the newsstand alongside issues of Elle, Bazaar and Vogue. From 1989 to 2000 the magazine founded by  fashion fixture and former editor -in -chief of American Vogue, Grace Mirabella offered up a no-nonsense take on fashion. Appealing to women who valued not only style, but substance the magazine was chock full of the era’s trademarks: supermodels, shoulder pads and colorful imagery filled with designs from the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, and Helmut Lang.

Even though the days of Mirabella have long since passed, time hasn’t stripped the publication of its charms. Looking back there are a great many aspects of Mirabella that still feel contemporary: Sarah Moon’s haunting photography is just as relevant today as it was nearly two decades ago (check the latest Valentino campaign if you need proof) and Christy Turlington – a perennial Mirabella fave – is still one of the industry’s great beauties. Today’s obsession with model-style seems foreshadowed by Mirabella’s sleek Glen Luchford editorial styled by none other than Kate Moss and it’s hard to think of a glossy that wouldn’t jump at the chance to publish a feature along these lines today. Styles may come and go but Ines de la Fressange still turns heads as trendsetter for the ages and Regan Cameron’s images of the legendary French muse are an enduring delight.
