Editorial Inspiration: Donna Jordan

December 14th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Once you get past the main editorial and its glossy tribute to the timeless Jerry Hall, the new Vogue Italia offers you a look at another iconic blonde beauty of the 1970s. Though perhaps lesser known than some of her disco-era ilk, Donna Jordan ranks among the most influential models of all time. Before Lara Stone was even born, Donna was the bleach browed, gap-toothed beauty who set the trend. Whether she was being shot by photographers like Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and Oliviero Toscani, or appearing in Andy Warhol films Donna demanded the attention of the fashion crowd. Paolo Roversi‘s colorful tribute to her unique style casts Iselin Steiro as the titular 70s beauty and captures her look wonderfully.

Double Vision: Comme des Garçons

November 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Some collections are made for editorial greatness, on the runway they’re good but when a talented team gets ahold of things the stories those garments can tell are limitless. One collection that has found new life editorially is Comme des Garcons‘ excellent fall/winter showing. The exaggerated proportions, bold patterns and plays on dimension have made for some truly striking imagery. Stylists seem to love playing with Rei Kawakubos artful creations, and there are a few looks that keep popping up in magazines month after month. Whether they’re worn by the likes of style legend Iris Apfel, transformed into samurai gear for Meghan Collison, or made part of David Sims‘ stark imagery, it is impossible to miss a CdG piece. Take a look back at some of the most memorable uses of the collection thus far and see how different stylists dealt with some of the more popular pieces.

Toy Story

October 11th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

As two of fashion’s most popular doll-faces Kirsi Pyrhonen and Audrey Marnay make frequent appearances in editorials that call for otherworldly beauty. In the latest Vogue Italia  Tim Walker casts the duo as wind up toys, complete with marionette inspired makeup and mechanical add-ons. With a sly nod to drag legends the Cockettes, fairytale styling by Jacob K and a few puppets added for good measure, Walker creates images that are unmistakably his.

Viva Valerija

August 18th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

i-D Magazine‘s Pick Me Up issue is filled to the brim with content that will bring a smile to your face and Benjamin Alexander Huseby‘s achingly pretty portraits of Valerija Kelava are no exception. Dressed in pattern covered separates chosen by Jacob K and posed against a blue backdrop, Valerija looks gorgeous. We’re especially keen on the shots where the nature peeks through and you can see a bit of the grassy scenery.

In A Daze

Ben Toms shoots a colorful and kinetic story for Dazed & Confused featuring girl of the moment, Saskia de Brauw. The out of sight styling by Jacob K, mixes print and pattern for a fresh spin on some of the season’s popular pieces, while hair and makeup by Shon and Hiromi Ueda, add to the overall feeling of off-kilter cool. We can’t help but love Saskia in this and those studded flats that feature prominently.
