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.

Banal Plus

July 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The normcore trend has been the subject of much debate – is it chic, is it lazy, is it even a legitimate trend at all? Craig McDean and Edward Enninful take on the look in the pages of W Magazine with an editorial that mixes the best in designer gear with everyday staples like Adidas tube socks and white clogs – the kind of items you’re more likely to find in the closets of athletes than amongst the accessories utilized in a fashion story. With boy short bowl cuts by James Pecis (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management) and minimal makeup by Fulvia Farolfi (ArtList Paris) models Daiane ConteratoGrace MaharyAymeline ValadeManuela FreyKatlin AasAmanda Murphy and Fei Fei Sun look equal parts haute and banal.
