Sometimes the combination of stylist, photographer and model combines to create a series of images with the power to make viewers dream. Together Templer, Demarchelier and Ewers create an evocative black and white studio story for Interview in which each element of the shoot is elevated. Pieces from fashion boundary breakers like Gareth Pugh, Yohji Yamamoto and Phoebe Philo come to life on the dynamic Anna, who showcases each look with gusto. Templer’s selection is heightened by the simple black and white style which gives the editorial a stately feel – perfect for clothes that are on the cutting edge yet maintain a timeless quality.

Wang Takes No Prisoners!

July 29th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Alexander Wang knows how to hold your attention and the designer always manages to surprise with his provocative campaigns. For fall Wang has got things on lockdown – literally. Citing the idea of “survival mode” as an inspiration Wang and Steven Klein (Art Partner) serve up women’s prison imagery with a fashion twist. Anna EwersVanessa MoodyLexi BolingKatlin Aas and Kat Hessen sport the utilitarian fall collection as they’re plunged into a world of strict rules, strip searches and  confinement. With Karl Templer styling you’re not going to see any orange jumpsuits and the girls look exceptional even as they impatiently await sentencing. All in all the ads mesh perfectly with the label’s spirit of youthful rebellion and provide the season’s most in-your-face campaign moment via that extreme on the floor shot.

The Moment’s Muse

May 5th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Meisel.
Lexi Boling.
Karl Templer.
Vogue Italia.

The influential Italian glossy crowns Lexi “the look of the moment” on its May cover and the stunning Chicagoan proves she’s got what it takes with an ultra-chic fashion story. Styled in transparent pieces with a touch of mod, Boling looks every inch the superstar – the laid back look provided by Pat McGrath and Guido Palau adds the final polish but the attitude is 100% Lexi. With her aloof gaze and hair parted just so as to cover one eye, Lexi embodies fashion’s enduring obsession with nonchalant it-girls.

Cover Confidential

March 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Feburary and March are big business for fashion magazines with glossies often debuting some of their best and brightest content during these months focused on spring collections, renewal and change. Take a look back at some of the most interesting covers from the boundlessly creative, to the simply beautiful.

PURE BEAUTY

Antidote Magazine‘s romance issue boasted multiple covers by Cuneyt Akeroglu featuring some of the world’s most beautiful women. United by their simple yet effective photography and their chic take on the magazine’s pristine subjects these covers were something special.

As one of fashion’s coolest faces Leona Binx Walton is typically photographed looking grungy, avant garde or off-kilter. Her Self Service cover with it’s effective beauty statement and clean layout showed another side. Collier Schorr portrait brings out Binx’s beauty, while maintaining her character.

THE BEST OF CELEBRITY

There are few actresses as effervescent as Marion Cotillard and Interview Magazine‘s March cover captured the La Vie En Rose star’s elegant side with a shot by Craig McDean that positively crackles with good ol’ fashioned glamour. Styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Christophe Danchaud and a 40s coif by Sam McKnight the image strikes the right balance between retro film siren and modern glamour - as does the accompanying fashion story. 

On the flip side, Dazed & Confused‘s rough and tumble cover of Scarlett Johansson finds the star’s inner bad girl and brings it to the forefront with a vibrant shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby . The combo of red background and Saint Laurent biker jacket and Scar-Jo’s glare makes for an appealing contrast to the typical smiling celebrity glamour shot.

MINIMAL MARVELS

You can’t go wrong with a picture of Daria Werbowy and The Last Magazine served up an epic large format image the superstar looking foreboding for it’s spring issue –  Mikael Jansson‘s in your face shot captures Werbowy at her rawest and best.

The Gentlewoman always errs on the side of minimalism, but the pulpy red cover of Vivienne Westwood by Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) was the perfect merger of timelessness and modernity.

CREATIVITY RULES

Nick Knight‘s trippy photography has always struck a chord with surrealists and on the cover of GARAGE‘s spring/summer edition he twists and morphs Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne into unbidden creatures designs that were eventually tattooed onto the skin of Garage readers – how’s that for taking things to the next level.

E.T. got a fashion makeover with Lindsey Wixson taking over the frontpage of CR Fashion Book with an expressive Sebastian Faena image that puts Wixson’s otherworldly visage to good use with a sweet nod to an 80s favorite.

DESIGNER DOMINATION

Karl Lagerfeld’s watercolor inspired spring Chanel collection has proved a hit with editors, in addition to appearing in the pages of just about every magazine imaginable his paint by numbers dresses found themselves on a variety of covers in March, most notably Vogue China, where two of the designer’s creations took center stage.

Not one to be outdone, Miuccia Prada also made a strong showing this March (and April) with a variety of painterly spring looks from her collections showing up on the cover of several different magazines.
