Double Trouble for Sacai FW 15

July 21st, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

The latest Sacai campaign for Fall/Winter 2015 brings back Julia Nobis with the addition of Lexi Boling for copycat visuals that will challenge you to spot the differences. It’s mostly about the silhouette and shapes for the new collection that emphasizes oversized proportions that accentuate a woman’s frame with rounded shoulders and flared skirts. Shot again by Craig McDean with styling from Karl Templer, the second minimalist advertisement offering continues in the tradition that designer Chitose Abe has created – letting great clothes speak for themselves.

Asymmetries and Ambiguities

April 29th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Steven Meisel delivered his visual quintessence for Prada’s pre-fall 2015 campaign. Appearing determined with penetrating glares, the duos Maartje Verhoef, Niels Trispel, Willow Hand, Artur Chruszcz, Aya Jones, Johannes Spaas, Natalie Westling, Finnlay Davis, Julia Nobis, & Tim Schuhmacher are a mixture of the freshest new faces and some Prada favorites. If Julia feels familiar it’s because she can add this to her Meisel-résumé, marking her second one for the brand along with her four covers of Vogue Italia. The pre-fall looks work tartan prints and mild pomp against the understated, and the introspective group executes that identity well, preparing us for the colder days to come. In Prada’s own words, the images play with “asymmetries and ambiguities” and elicit “elegance, poise and dare”. The campaign has the definitive feel of Meisel’s classic, cast-centric work and Miuccia’s visionary originality.

Through the Looking Glass

April 13th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

With an aura as ethereal as the coming spring breeze, Julia Nobis poses for the latest issue of Interview Magazine and the Spring 2015 Sacai campaign, the first for the cutting edge brand (finally out in print). Here she shows her effortless range appealing to both editorial and commercial audiences with her exquisitely beautiful presence and quirkiness. Teaming up for the two projects with photographer, Craig McDean, and super-stylist, Karl Templer, has resulted in inspiring harmony.

For Interview, Nobis brings the audience through the looking-glass, however cracked and tarnished it may be, to view the latest couture fashion from John Galliano‘s first creation for Maison Martin Margiela to Valentino‘s gilded wares.

For Sacai Spring/Summer 2015, Nobis shows that she has no trouble wearing Chitose Abe’s bold creations that have a penchant towards peculiarly blending design elements far from safe.

Prada’s Haunting Postscript

March 9th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Prada released three hauntingly beautiful backstage videos as a postscript to their Spring/Summer 2015 campaign that was photographed by Steven Meisel. As Gemma Ward, Julia Nobis and Ine Neefs recede into speckled shadows or are enveloped by a spectral, ultraviolet glow their floaty movements are eerily entrancing. The trio of models, each with their own video, convey only whispers of emotions to great effect. Passing close-ups of the stitchings and patterns concentrate on the garments’ details. The pithy, dream-like videos add even more expression to the still campaign. An adagio piano score and doleful expressions conjecture feelings of melancholy and establish the wonderfully seductive hints of unconventionality that is Miuccia’s domain.

The Warmest Color

March 2nd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Louis Vuitton unleashes its latest Spirit of Travel campaign and the results are mesmerizing. Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, this season we arrive in a turquoise paradise starring the serene efforts of Liya Kebede, Julia Nobis, and Maartje Verhoef where they roam through the French West Indies adorned with the newest trunks and handbags that Vuitton has to offer. The pristine, azure waters and a late-60s, floral vibe from Nicolas Ghesquière’s Spring/Summer collection brings us out of the slum of Winter to a sartorial utopia.

The Family

January 29th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Mikael Jansson takes top models to the commune in the pages of Interview Magazine with an editorial that makes living off the land in seem glamorous. With matching blonde bobs and minimal makeup, the appealing cast of Caroline TrentiniConstance JablonskiJulia NobisDaria Strokous and Lina Berg looks like sisters, or at least sister-wives. It might be hard to imagine any of these girls plowing the fields, or harvesting their own veggies while wearing pieces from Marc Jacobs and Acne, but Jansson and  Karl Templer make the scenario work. The wardrobe of army green and khaki creates a pared down (but still luxurious) uniform.

Prada Principles

January 5th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

From the moment Gemma Ward stepped out onto Prada‘s S/S15 runway it seemed certain that she would front the corresponding spring campaign for the Milanese megabrand. Miuccia Prada never does things by halves, so when it came time for campaign season fashion followers eagerly awaited the final product and the streamlined ads by Steven Meisel, styled by Olivier Rizzo, do not disappoint. Gemma is front and center in a stark black and white shot, contrasted with a colorful image of the season’s must have accessories. Ine Neefs features in the campaign’s equally beautiful second shot sporting a sleek dress with contrast stitching and a perfectly coordinated bowler bag. Rounding out the cast of elegant blondes is Julia Nobis, a Prada fixture and perennial Meisel favorite who lends an air of austerity to her portraits.
