The Halloween Edit

October 31st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion has always held Halloween in a special esteem. Of all the holidays it allows for the most outlandish changes and transformations which means it is right up fashion’s alley. As such there are countless editorials that serve to inspire a bit of seasonal cheer, or at least serve as appropriate fodder for Halloween costumes. Take a look back at 10 editorials that make us think of all-Hallows eve and share your favorite spooky or kooky fashion story in the comments.

01. Ph. Tim Walker
Publication: Harper’s Bazaar
Who better to look to on Halloween than legendary filmmaker (and master of the spooky story) Tim Burton? Bazaar’s fashion trip through Burton’s filmography is a creepy classic.

Halloween3

02. Ph. Jean-Francois Campos
Publication: Flair
Campos’ Nosferatu-esque zombies might not be as scary as the characters on The Walking Dead but it made for a great spooky editorial.

Halloween1H5

03. Ph. Steven Klein (Art Partner)
Publication: Candy Magazine
There are quite a few Steven Klein stories that could be considered Halloween ready, but his fantastical male pregnancy saga for Candy is probably the most outlandish.

Halloween5

04. Ph. Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello
Publication: Numéro
Sofia & Mauro took inspiration from Divine for this out there story that captures all the kitschy goodness of John Waters’ over the top film.

Halloween1

05. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: American Vogue
The way in which each and every model on this story took on a classic rock persona was downright inspirational – Omhyra as Prince, Karolina Kurkova as Marilyn Manson, Sophie Dahl as Debbie Harry – the work by Pat McGrathGrace Coddington and Orlando Pita on this story was nothing short of iconic.

Halloween2

06. Ph. Peter Lindbergh
Publication: Vogue Paris
Some of fashion’s own characters make for incredible costumes, case in point Sasha P morphing into John Galliano for Vogue Paris.

Halloween6

07. Ph. Thomas Lagrange (Total Management)
Publication: Vogue Japan
You can’t have a Halloween roundup without a little vampirism and LaGrange’s slick beauty story puts a chic twist on bloodsucking.

Halloween1H6

08. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: Vogue Italia
The inspiration for Meisel’s ‘The Discipline of Fashion’ was Ethel Granger, a woman who tightlaced for years in order to achieve a 13 inch waist! You don’t need to go that far to get into the story or the incredible, unnerving visuals.

Halloween1H1

09. Ph. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
Publication: V Magazine
A before and after of epic proportions where Eniko, Anja and Raquel are transformed via the use of Paddy Hartley’s transparent face masks. The clear plastic and cutouts distort the wearers face by changing its proportions in ways that range from beautiful to grotesque.

Halloween1H2

10. Ph. Craig McDean
Publication: American Vogue
Before everyone was running out to grab their Avengers costume, Coco Rocha was playing fashion superhero in the pages of Vogue with this memorable McDean story.

Halloween1H3

Just Watch!

October 10th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Liu Wen.
David Sims.
Vogue China.

The Apple Watch on the cover is getting a great deal of media attention, but don’t forget who’s selling that Céline + Apple combination and making the luxury tech piece look downright essential. November is all about Liu Wen‘s first solo Vogue China cover – the Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin anniversary issue covers were gorgeous but several other girls were featured. Liu owns the stately David Sims image with a quiet power and in the accompanying cover story she’s just as good.

LV Overload!

August 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one collection that is getting editorial love this September it is Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut for Louis Vuitton. While LVMH is generally no slouch in the editorial department, Ghesquire’s work has gone that extra mile – appearing on the cover of or within the pages of almost every single September issue thus far. For fans of the designer’s work the constant sight of logo printed belts and playful dresses has been an appealing constant thread amidst the past few months of editorials and covers, but how much is too much? Take a look at the line’s recent front page appearances and decide. Stylists show no signs of slowing down with their Vuitton obsession so you can expect to see the iconic luxury label rack up even more covers as the month winds down.

September’s model domination of magazine covers continues with a stellar showing from down under. Vogue Australia’s simple and effortless image is a testament to less is more – when you have an incredible model, great photographers and a choice piece from Nicolas Ghesquière‘s Louis Vuitton collection you need nothing more.

Chloe Hits the Road

August 1st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

For fall Chloe heads upstate to Harriman, New York for a designer roadtrip shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, who put their style to good use creating an atmospheric campaign with the energy and sun-drenched cinematography of a feature film. Sasha Pivovarova and Andreea Diaconu are the heroines of this piece and they cruise through the deserted streets clad in Baylee bags, chunky furs and the seventies style girlish pieces that are Chloe’s bread & butter. The duo makes for the perfect pair of Chloe girls and the dreamy vibe of the video fits creative director, Clare Waight Keller’s vision completely.

“As with the collection, I wanted to create this sense of mystery, something strange and a little bit wild. I liked the idea of two girls escaping, moving forward. There’s a real beauty in the idea of chasing something hopeful.” – Clare Waight Keller, Chloé Creative Director

LOVE’s 12th

July 21st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Love Magazine and editor-in-chief Katie Grand  like to keep readers on their toes so issue 12 is filled with the unexpected. Adriana Lima brings a sultry energy to her Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin cover portrait, its flamenco feel providing a welcome playfulness to the month’s newsstand. The shoot marks the very first time Inez & Vinoodh create a cover for LOVE and the image doesn’t disappoint. The David Sims preview of Kendall Jenner whet our appetites for an all-American girl editorial and the final cover is an equally appealing shot of the beauty sporting an oversized fur hat. Last but certainly not least, multiple-Oscar nominee and new face of Max Mara, Amy Adams sheds her sweet image for a raw portrait by Juergen Teller.

Industrie Icons

July 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Industrie Magazine is known for its in depth look at fashion’s most interesting personalities and the magazine’s latest issue lives up to that legacy with a compelling look at Vogue’s Tonne Goodman. As one of the most prolific stylists around, Goodman has helped to craft Vogue’s identity for several decades and more than 100 covers. Goodman rarely grants interviews so the recounting of her career, from her beginnings as a model to her tenure as fashion director is a wonderful treat for readers. Fashion historians will find themselves enthralled by the interview, while lovers of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin’s photography are sure to find themselves drawn in by their photos of Goodman in her signature black turtleneck and sleek blonde hair.

Editorially the issue is filled with fresh content from the very best contributors, Lara Stone features in stark shots by Erik Torstensson, accompanied by a lengthy interview that details her ascent to supermodel status. Joan Smalls pumps iron in an adrenaline filled story by Lachlan Bailey (Management + Artists), Freja Beha Erichsen models Alexander Wang’s latest and Jamie Bochert guides readers through a day in her life comic book style.

La Reina

June 27th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

With the triple campaign whammy of Balenciaga, Isabel Marant and Emilio Pucci Gisele Bundchen proves herself high fashion’s MVP. Given that she’s already the current face of H&M and has taken over Stuart Weitzman from none other than Kate Moss, it can feel as though we’re seeing Gisele everywhere and that’s a good thing. Bundchen has always been a compelling presence in front of the camera and her jam-packed campaign slate gives her ample opportunity to display her versatility. In Steven Klein‘s (Art Partner) punk ads for Balenciaga she’s a buzz-cut sporting rebel, while Mario Sorrenti‘s(Art Partner) sleek ads for Pucci give her a chance to amp up the sex appeal in Peter Dundas‘ elegantly embellished party pieces. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin offer yet another interpretation with Bundchen playing Marant’s well-dressed everywoman in Marant’s signature relaxed knits and layers.
