Marant Moves

January 12th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

The Isabel Marant woman for spring is powerful, energetic and apparently quite flexible too. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helm the brand’s striking new campaign starring Natasha Poly with creative direction by Atelier Franck Durand. The bold images feature Natasha giving poses worthy of a yogi and displaying Marant’s modern art infused Spring collection. Still-lifes showcase covetable items like the soon to be ubiquitous Marant flat sandal. In case you’re wondering where to pick up any of these looks the boldfaced text on each photo outlines the line’s global retail presence.

Chloe’s Time Capsule

January 6th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Though the Chloe brand was founded in 1952 the early seventies have always held a special place in the label’s history. The relaxed silhouettes and romantic take on femininity are completely in line with the classic Chloe look created by Gaby Aghion. Current creative director, Clare Waight Keller sought to bring that feel to the label’s latest campaign, enlisting Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin to shoot Eniko Mihalik and Caroline Trentini in breezy spring looks on a sandy beach to create a perfectly dreamy campaign that takes viewers back to the days when Donna Summer played on the radio. “This season I was searching for a truly iconic 70’s beauty. Both Caroline and Eniko have that look, so indicative of the 70’s era; the unkempt hair, fresh natural radiance, soft freckles and sun-blushed skin that reminds me so much of the women of that period,” says Clare Waight Keller, Chloé Creative Director.

Boss Lady

December 17th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When Abbey Lee sauntered down the BOSS runway this season it marked a triumphant return. The Aussie beauty has been busily building her acting resume with parts opposite Tom Hardy and Gerard Butler, but rest assured that she hasn’t forgotten how to work it. Jason Wu is known for creating supermodel moments so naturally he tapped Abbey for BOSS’ latest campaign. Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin with styling by Joe McKenna (Art Partner) the minimalistic campaign is all about attitude and exquisitely tailored clothing. “No extraneous graphics, no set. It’s about the very essence of the woman and the man,” states Artistic Director Jason Wu of the beautiful new images. Stephen Galloways choreography adds grace to Abbey Lee’s poses, while classical violinist & model Charlie Siem (London: Storm Model Management, Paris: Success Models) serves as the campaign’s elegant male lead.

Wu Bar None

December 3rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

In the world of Jason Wu every night provides another opportunity for fine dining and supermodel filled revelry. For the designer’s Spring 2015 campaign, Wu continues his epic pairings of top model and top restaurant with sleek Inez & Vinoodh shots of Karlie Kloss in the legendary Grand Central Oyster Bar. The chic campaign art directed by Patrick Li juxtaposes an ultra-sexy Wu clad Karlie, with the Oyster Bar’s famous counter and Grand Central’s Beaux-Arts architecture. All in all the ad provides the perfect distillation of Wu’s woman – a vibrant and well heeled beauty who is always ready for a night on the town and sets hearts racing the moment she walks in the door.

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.
