Seeing Spots

May 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When Haider Ackermann filled his S/S13 runway with transparent creations emblazoned with black and white dots, it seemed like an unusual move. Polka dots are a fashion standard dating back years, but the diminutive patterns are more often associated with the prim styles of the 1950s than with the kinds of cutting-edge wares favored on Paris’ runways. The designer so known for his innovative use of lush, saturated color was showing another side, taking one of the most uncool of motifs and making it feel new.

In keeping with the current craze for all things graphic, stylists have embraced the versatility of these simple circles, working Ackermann’s creations into a variety of editorials. On occasion the interpretations don’t veer too far from the runway approach (fashion abides by the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ mantra whenever it can) but the excitement comes when the spots are complimented by clashing patterns to create a dynamic visual treat. Whether it is layering in another of Ackermann’s prints from S/S or adding a bold kimono for interest, the real fun lies in the mix which offers stylists an opportunity to show their creativity.

First Look: The Greatest

April 12th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

Take a glimpse of the newest issue of The Greatest Magazine with minimalistic spreads of the season’s most coveted looks. The Italian magazine’s third issue, focusing on the theme of “Water”; features Paolo Zerbini shooting Tomek Szczukiecki for the cover (who’s shorn of his signature long locks). Some of the best new faces of the season are featured in staple pieces from the latest Spring Summer collections of Maison Martin Margiela, Jil Sander, Kenzo and more. Interviews with designers Andrea Incontri and Alessandro Sartori (the art director of Berluti) and an evocative fashion film (below, directed by Francesco Brigida) round out an issue overflowing with fresh and modern images, proving that minimal sometimes has a maximal effect.
