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

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.
