Anna Rises

October 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It is easy to see why Anna Ewers is the most wanted girl of the moment. The German beauty has a pristine appeal that calls to mind Deutschland favorites like Toni Garrn and Claudia Schiffer. Classic beauty is always great, but nothing beats a girl with the look and the ability to bring it in front of the camera. Since her stellar show season (check out her Top 10 Newcomer story) Anna has been making a splash in the pages of Vogue Paris, CR Fashion Book, British Vogue and the latest Prada campaign – an impressive lineup for any model, but a breakout series of bookings for a girl fresh on the scene.

EXCLUSIVE: Sasha Covers The Last

August 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Newly minted icon Sasha Pivovarova covers the latest edition of oversized glossy The Last Magazine in a stellar shot by Josh Olins and styled by Alastair McKimm. Dressed in layers of textured winter grey, Sasha is a serene and striking presence in a story that is filled with some of the most creative designs featured on the fall/winter runways. Céline‘s Geoffrey Beene-esque coat, Alexander Wang‘s luxe take on the hoodie and several other inventive twists on slate grey are used to great effect in this striking editorial.

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.

Moody Blues

March 26th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

To say denim is a wardrobe staple is something of an understatement; jeans have moved from workwear, to becoming one of the hallmarks of modern fashion. As ubiquitous as jeans have become, there are still plenty of options beyond the basic blues. For Dazed & Confused Josh Olins and Robbie Spencer unlock the avant garde potential of denim-on-denim, creating looks that range from quirky, to full on outlandish. Kasia Struss keeps her trademark cool even as she’s layered in everything from oversized overalls, to jean jackets with linebacker sized shoulders. Olins’ ultra-cool photographs keep the focus on the clothes, while Spencer’s edgy styling never fails to excite.

Minimal Mood

January 22nd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Josh Olins.
Alastair McKimm.
Suvi Koponen.
Vogue China.

Less is more in Olins’ take on the seasons’ most appealingly minimalist pieces. Styled to perfection by McKimm, the luxurious runway pieces especially sleek – even Miuccia Prada’s decadently girlish collection manages to seem stripped down in these stark images. Suvi proves the perfect muse for the current mood and with her slick hair by Esther Langham and glistening skin courtesy of Sally Branka, she embodies modern, nonchalant chic.

Double Vision: Celine

November 28th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one designer who knows how to get women (and men) excited it is Phoebe Philo and her continued success at Celine is a testament to her ability to tap into the pulse of what women want. For F/W Philo went in a graphic direction, with primary shades, bold color blocking and a mixes of texture, from matte leather to plush fur. One of the most editorially beloved pieces from the Celine collection was the Geometric Intarsia Sweater, a playful clash of mink and leather that succinctly merged the essence of the entire collection into a single item. If another designer were to throw together that many things on one top it might seem overwrought, or ridiculous but Phoebe Philo keeps the look minimal.

Most stylists didn’t stray too far from that ideal, pairing the sweaters with either the runway approved striped trousers, or an equally understated crisp white skirt. Most of the time what stands out are the accessories and add ons, be they gleaming silver cuffs, avant garde headgear or the label’s coveted Trapeze Bag. Take a look at the way in which several different teams interpreted the Celine look and subsequently the sleek mood of the season.
