Boss Mode

June 30th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

It’s a moody, dark atmosphere that Jason Wu has envisioned for the Hugo Boss world. Doe-eyed beauty Edie Campbell and the dapper Clement Chabernaud take on a grooved-wall labyrinth in the Fall 2015 campaign shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Sleek tailoring and surprising pops of warm color are key to the visuals that exude a metropolitan edge with a confident swagger. Boss mode, indeed.

Alessandro Michele‘s vision for Gucci sets the world in the gritty cityscape of LA. Models are all in various states of transport, whether by train or foot, adorned in Michele’s first foray for the juggernaut brand. Shot by Glen Luchford, the retro looking visuals match nostalgia with modernity as background figures provide abrupt variation to designs  in the foreground. Again, the floral prints mixed with the staunch rigidity of industrialization drive home the point of dualities and fluidity between the runway and the street. See more of the images below.

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.

Like A Boss

June 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When Jason Wu took the creative reigns at Hugo Boss, he infused the storied brand with a dose of excitement. The fashion world waited with baited breath to see just what Wu would come up with and his streamlined fall collection didn’t disappoint. Given that Wu’s F/W runway was full of the kind of trend-proof wares that will remain relevant for decades to come, it’s only fitting that his debut campaign for BOSS maintains that timeless feel. Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and styled by Joe McKenna (Art Partner) with creative direction by Wu, the Hugo Boss fall ads are refined and character driven – a move that is unsurprising considering that Wu launched his collection with a corresponding film.

Fall’s players include a dynamic and modern femme embodied by brand muse, Edie Campbell and a rugged male lead portrayed by Scott Eastwood, the dashing son of Hollywood legend Clint and a rising star in his own right. By centering the ads around these archetypes, Wu instantly grounds the BOSS ideals in the kind of classicism that feels contemporary. Edie’s versatility shines as she poses in tailored overcoats and dresses, while Eastwood lends his shots a touch of Hollywood panache.

If the sleek campaign looks different from what we’ve come to expect from it’s no mistake. “This is my first campaign for BOSS, and we wanted to take a fresh, different approach,” says BOSS Artistic  Director Jason Wu. “The HUGO BOSS tradition is in tailoring, which is always present, but it’s important that this campaign not only shows the BOSS clothes, but evokes the BOSS lifestyle.”

Versace, Versace

May 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Summer has barely started, but fall campaigns are already beginning to roll in. First up, the legendary house of Versace which unleashes an eyecatching set of ads for men and women helmed by none other than Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner). The in your face duo put forth a daring set of images – for womenswear it’s veteran model Stella Tennant starring in at a Versace clad Anna Ewers with a look of longing – is it the handbag she’s after or the decadently dressed Anna? One may never know, but the photos with their saturated colors and Guy Bourdin leanings pack a visual punch and Joe McKenna (Art Partner)’s styling is a wonder to behold. Menswear is all about the beefcake with Filip Hrivnak and Daan van der Deen taking us back to the 90s in bold prints, leather chaps and David Bradshaw‘s luxe mix of sexy Versace standards.

First Look: Document No. 4

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

documentj

Many magazines set out to bridge the worlds of art and fashion, but few compare to the engaging volumes Document assembles with each issue. After last fall’s Paul McCarthy designed cover, Document’s offering for S/S 14 continues to combine arresting editorials, bastions of the contemporary art world, and vital conversations to provide a comprehensive window onto today’s cultural landscape.

Seeking “spontanaeity, authenticity, and simplicity,” Document No. 4 addresses authorship with photographer Nan Goldin, architecture with Brazil’s Carla Juaçaba, and diversity with Liya Kebede and Bethann Hardison. Elsewhere, fashion crossovers Willem Dafoe and Erykah Badu discuss unique presence in the respective worlds of cinema and music, while legends of style Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Joe McKenna (Art Partner) collide to discuss fashion past, present, and future.

As for the editorials, Document showcases top models Malgosia Bela and Freja Beha Erichsen on two different covers that illuminate each versatile beauty’s standalone presence. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby shoots Malgosia styled by Jodie Barnes in an array of guises that hit the season’s boldest trends. Exploring performance, photographer Collier Schorr captures Freja’s nuanced turn as a Method actor. The unstoppable Amanda Wellsh plays around before Alex Olson’s lens, Lily McMenamy styles herself for a profile of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, and things turn surreal when Camilla Akrans (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Management + Artists) shoots Missy Rayder. Not to be surpassed in the months between biannual issues, Document and photographer Christian MacDonald nominate 17 of spring’s most promising faces, all sporting pre-Fall looks styled by Document’s Fashion Director James Valeri.

Be on the lookout for Document No. 4, on newsstands now.
