A Sensual Touch

December 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When we think about the way in which lingerie is marketed, it’s easy to envision the typical tropes of sexed up imagery and in your face displays of skin, but La Perla‘s latest campaign proves you can market the very best in nightwear while maintaining subtlety. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) create a sensual spring /summer campaign for the venerable lingerie house capturing their new made to measure collection on Sigrid Agren, Ming Xi and Izabel Goulart. Richard Biedul joins the fun as the campaign’s menswear face, looking dapper in layers of textured black. Fabien Baron creative direction serves to anchor the campaign, allowing Mert & Marcus’ elegant images to take center stage.

Cover to Cover

January 28th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle


We’ve been seeing a lot of Marc Jacobs’ mod influenced collection for Louis Vuitton, so it is no surprised to see it showing up on the covers of two stylish publications this month. Numero‘s sleek image by Sebastian Kim gives you two sides of of Nadja Bender, while Vogue Japan offers a girlish take on Jacobs’ designs with a coquettish image of Lindsey Wixson by Patrick Demarchelier. Both pictures present a compelling fashion moment, so it really boils down to whether you prefer your Vuitton girl seductive, or syrupy sweet.



Dansk returns with two images designed to whet readers’ appetites for more of the famed Danish magazine’s blend of art and fashion. Nadja Bender shows up again (there isn’t a magazine you won’t find Nadja in these days) looking effortlessly cool in Hasse Nielsen‘s black and white shot, but the image that grabs our attention is that of the aptly named Adonis Bosso taken by Raf Stahelin. Dressed in a debonair fedora and head to metallics, Bosso cuts an impressive figure – we can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.



Giampaolo Sgura and Anna Dello Russo are at it again! This time the duo creates four wildly different covers for Vogue Brasil featuring Magdalena FrackowiakIzabel GoulartBette Franke and Mirte Maas. Each cover captures a completely different mood within the sexy & chic theme: from the all out glamour of Magda’s shot, Mirte’s full on Dello Russo eclecticism, Izabel’s vibrant  cover image and the purity of Bette’s Prada collection image. Each cover has its merits, but we can’t help but think that Bette’s austere Miuccia madness feels freshest.
