On the Line

June 11th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Jamie Bochert is cool without even trying, so it’s no wonder that brands go to her when they’re in search of that intangible it-factor. Case in point the new chapter from The Line , the ultra luxe e-commerce destination that is home to cutting edge labels like Altuzarra, J.W. Anderson, Protagonist and Reed Krakoff. Shot by Matthew Sprout and styled by Vanessa Traina (Management + Artists), the serene images feature Jamie in a series of looks that seems culled from the perfect closet. Clean lines, cool tones and an appealingly minimal aesthetic dominate the story and the pared down feel keeps things modern. Countless lines are expanding into the realm of content, but The Line‘s simple, elegant take on editorial is among the most appealing we’ve seen.

Sebastian Kim and Katie Mossman get abstract for Vogue Germany with a wild fashion story that looks to art for inspiration.

The impressive set design by Kadu Lennox and the creative selection of painterly pieces from the season’s collections – including PradaChloe and Altuzarra – take this colorful story to that next level.

The four covers and accompanying features run the gamut from elegant takes on the season’s runway essentials, to atmospheric black and whites. Patrik Sehlstedt‘s moody shots of Meghan Collison capture her dark beauty perfectly, while stylist Brian Molloy’s mix of textured outerwear and wintry layers serves as the perfect complement to the rustic setting.

Richard Burbridge shoots and Ondria Hardin poses – doesn’t get much better than that. Hardin is a natural in front of the camera and seeing her in streamlined looks from Céline and Stella McCartney, just makes sense. Burbridge is never one to simply offer a straightforward story and there is always a twist to be expected when he’s shooting, here he utilizes texture and lighting to great effect creating pictures that reveal the detail behind even the most pared down pieces.

But wait, there is more! Inside the magazine you’ll find plenty more to adore, including this gravity defying hair story. James Pecis creates a otherworldly styles that break from the norm – Medusa-inspired braids, cloud-like curls and a few looks that take the term “sideswept” to its logical endpoint. Tilda, Stef and Dylan shine in Paul Wetherell’s refined images which show the limits of what hair can do!

Get to Know: CFDA’s 2012 Nominees

July 17th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Since its inception back in 2003, the CFDA’s Fashion Fund initiative has helped the rising stars of American fashion talent grow their businesses and increase their presence. Previous winners have included the likes of Proenza Schouler, Joseph Altuzarra and Billy Reid, labels that represent the very best of what the current scene has to offer. Take a look at 2012’s nominees, the names you may now and a few who just might be new to you and find out what they’re bringing to the table.



SUNO
Designers: Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty

Perhaps the most well known of the lines nominated, Suno has been on the scene since 2008. Osterweis and Beatty create atypical printed looks made with textiles from Kenya, Japan India & Peru; this combination of the traditional and the modern makes for uniquely inspired collections with a global point of view.

Fun Fact: An avid textile collector, Osterweis’ collection of Kenyan kangas inspired Suno’s first piece.



ILLESTEVA
Designers: Justin Salguero, Daniel Silberman, and Alina Silberman

Thing all sunglasses have to look the same? Think again, founded in 2009 Illesteva breaks the mold in more ways than one with daring designs and natural materials like bamboo, wood, titanium and natural buffalo horn. It’s no wonder then that everyone from Lady Gaga to James Bond himself, Daniel Craig has been spotted out wearing shades from the brand.

Fun Fact: Though Illesteva makes unusual specs, the designers like to think of them as classics. Founder Daniel Silberman told Interview Mag that their goal while designing was creating glasses “that you can give the glasses to your grandkids 50 years from now.”




TABITHA SIMMONS
Designer: Tabitha Simmons

Superstar stylist turned designer, Tabitha Simmons creates the kind of shoes that defy both gravity and reality. Skyscraper heels, crystals dangling off the ankles like chandeliers and enough color, print and pattern to satisfy even the most extroverted shopper. She’s already snagged the British Fashion Award for Emerging talent and her heels are consistently showing up in the pages of magazines like Vogue, W, Bazaar and more; could a CFDA be next?

Fun Fact: Though she doesn’t do a runway show, you’ll find Tabitha’s shoes appearing on the catwalk for designers like Creatures of the Wind.




A.L.C.
Designer: Andrea Lieberman

With her sleek updates of urbane essentials, Andrea Lieberman has garnered a loyal following. Her A.L.C. line has been going strong since 09 and boasts an array of minimal separates with a very NYC feel. The corresponding line, A.L.C. jewelry filled with sleek cuffs and striking necklaces – not to mention our personal fave, the handcuff earrings. When it comes to creating a total look, Parson’s grad Lieberman has her client covered.

Fun Fact: Before starting her line, Andrea was a Hollywood power-stylist with clients like Gwen Stefani, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow!




JENNIFER FISHER JEWELRY
Designer: Jennifer Fisher

Jennifer Fisher’s foray into jewelry began after trying to find a special piece to commemorate the birth of her son and coming up short. This led Fisher to create her own necklace, a dog tag charm with his name stamped on it, soon after she was bombarded by requests from friends and the experience led her to start her own line. “I wanted to create jewelry that signified my own personal style, incorporated all things I loved, and could be worn all the time.”

Fun Fact: Before designing jewelry, Fisher was a wardrobe stylist for numerous films & tv shows.



ASSEMBLY NEW YORK
Designer: Greg Armas

In 2008 Assembly began as one of New York’s most eclectic shops, showcasing a curated selection of hard to find designers, vintage and objects d’art. By 2009 owner Greg Armas branched out with an organic, unisex collection crafted from natural & historic fabrics, with the goal of creating “archival quality” pieces.

Fun Fact:



GIULIETTA
Designer: Sofia Sizzi

Sofia Sizzi’s career as a designer started at just 19 when she began working for Gucci; the fashionable Florentine went on to Donna Karan and Calvin Klein before launching her own label, Giulietta. Named after Fellini’s Giulietta degli Spiriti, the line merges old world and new with a feminine touch.

Fun Fact: In case you couldn’t tell from the Fellini reference, Sizzi is a major film buff. Fall’s collection was inspired by The Leopard.



JENNIFER MEYER JEWELRY
Designer: Jennifer Meyer Maguire

You may not know Meyer’s name, but you’re sure to have seen her elegant pieces on celebrities like Katie Holmes, Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman. Meyer’s signature gold leaf & wishbone necklaces have become downright ubiquitous in Hollywood and with their simple, beautiful design it is easy to see why. Though she spent some time in PR & as an editor for Glamour Magazine, Jennifer got bit by the design bug early; Meyer started crafting jewelry when she was just six years old, learning to make enamel pieces from her grandmother.

Fun Fact: Jennifer is married to none other than Great Gatsby star, Tobey Maguire.



THE ELDER STATESMAN
Designer: Greg Chait

Cutting edge cashmere for the dapper downtown gentleman, Greg Chait cornered the market on haute hipster with Elder Statesman’s easy going, yet incredibly luxurious sweaters, hoodies and sumptuous blankets.

Fun Fact: Founder Greg Chait is an avid surfer, he’s got Peru & the Caribbean on his surfing bucket list.




WES GORDON
Designer: Wes Gordon

A young designer with the spirit of an old master, Wes Gordon designs clothing not for girls, but for sleek, jet setting women. Though he’s only 25 Gordon’s work reflects a sensibility that is worldly and sophisticated, something that sets him apart from many other designers in his age bracket.

Fun Fact: For fall Gordon name-checked Greta Garbo and Rooney Mara as his sartorial inspirations.

The Fashion Fund

January 26th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Every year the CFDA Fashion fund gives emerging designers a chance to take things to that next level, but ever wonder what happens behind the scenes? This year Vogue offers up a birds eye view of the competition and camaraderie, following the 10 nominated labels (Joseph Altuzarra, Pamela Love, Antonio Azzuolo, Carlos Campos, Shane Gabier and Chris Peters of Creatures of the Wind, Alexa Adams and Flora Gill of Ohne Titel, Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie of Cushnie et Ochs, Dana Lorenz for Fenton/Fallon, Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty of Suno, Soraya Silchenstedt of Finn Jewelry) as they compete for fashion’s premier prize in the web-series The Fashion Fund.

While we all know by now that Joseph Altuzarra walks away with the coveted prize, it is still engrossing to watch the next generation of talent as they express themselves and their vision. Forget the standard “fashion” reality fare you’ve seen before, the six part series produced by Break Thru Films and directed by Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern is more in line with docs like The September Issue.

The Biz: Altuzarra Wins & Versace Returns

November 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Joseph Altuzarra‘s CFDA portrait by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin

The results are in and the big winner at this year’s CFDA awards was none other than Joseph Altuzarra (who we interviewed back in 2009). With previous winners like Proenza Schouler and Billy Reid, the award serves to shine a light on the very best in emerging talent and provide a substantial platform to help designers grow their businesses. Altuzarra’s lighthearted spring collection was a bit of a departure from his hard edged vision of femininity, but it showed a great deal of versatility. Vogue.com

California Song booklets being printed – via Hedi Slimane Diary

On the eve of his exhibition, ‘California Song’ at MOCA New York Times examines the former designer’s second act as a successful photographer. For more on the exhibition, running now until January 22nd visit MOCA’s site.

Slimane’s exhibition at MOCA will be divided into two parts. An installation and a series of black-and-white print photographs from his California years will be presented on the ground floor, and a sonic, motion-photography installation, produced specifically for MOCA, will be featured on the second floor. The installation will reference a multi-projection, cubic, architectural format, which Slimane has constructed in previous exhibitions to present his photographs, using serial construction and repetition to create an archaic form of cinematic narration.
