Wu’s Spring Fling

January 17th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

For his spring collection Jason Wu looked to the sex appeal and visual impact of Helmut Newton‘s photographs, so naturally when it came time to create a campaign Wu wanted visuals every bit as powerful as those Newton created. The bar was set high, but who better to handle the task than the dream team of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin handling photography, Kate Young styling, Patrick Li art directing and the one and only Stephanie Seymour striking the poses. Shot at La Grenouille and seeped in the kind of old school glamour that never loses its appeal, Wu’s campaign is as good as it gets. The designer himself even joins in on the fun, sharing space with La Seymour in an instantly iconic shot.

Let’s DANSK

August 2nd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Dansk never fails to excite us with new content and for fall the mag is already on the right track with an incredible image of Magdalena gracing the first of their covers.  Naturally, their second looks just as good: Sigrid Agren features in a gritty yet gorgeous shot by Aitken Jolly, that captures the spirt of the “something wicked this way comes” headline. Jolly’s black and white image is definitely showcasing the devious side of the typically sweet Miss Agren.

Inside you’ll find favorites like Clement Chabernaud, Julia Saner, Barbara Palvin, Patricia van der Vliet, Dree Hemingway, Josephine Skriver and James Smith along with interviews with fashion heavyweights like Gucci’s Frida Gianini, Dries Van Noten and Acne’s Jonny Johansson.

The Method

July 5th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Modeling and acting have always crossed paths, but Daniel Jackson takes the connection to the next level with his latest for Acne Paper. Some of the industry’s freshest faces get a bit of dramatic training for Jackson’s camera: Julia Saner, Anais Pouliot, Taras Koltun, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Kate King, Iris Egbers, Alexander Beck and Colinne Michaelis clutch scripts, do table reads and put on a full show, while wearing pieces pulled by Mattias Karlsson. With each model displaying a full range of emotion and Jackson’s stark black and whites setting the mood, this is one story Strasberg could be proud of.

Campaigning

January 12th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Campaigns. We can’t get enough of the Spring ads. Unlike previous seasons where an overarching theme repeated through several campaigns, S/S 2011 is all about individuality; whether that means smart city chic ala DKNY’s clean ads featuring Heidi Mount and Kori Richardson, or all out fantasy as in the butterfly filled, Lindsey Wixson ads for Alexander McQueen. Some campaigns keep true to the spirit of the collection – Louis Vuitton’s chinoiserie motif repeats in the Steven Meisel helmed campaign, while others go in bold new directions. Armani’s refined collection is given a styling update in the ads by Nick Knight, the addition of a turban on Elisa Sednaoui gives the look more drama.

Even the simplest campaigns seem to have different moods this season; both Valentino and Calvin Klein go for black and white purity, but Valentino’s feminine David Sims shots of Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Julia Saner and Freja Beha Erichsen, are the exact opposite of CK’s austere Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott images of Lara Stone.
