Angel Rising

February 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

The Ancient Greeks looked to their gods as idols of strength and beauty, values they praised above all else. In a couple thousand years, those qualities still define our icons, especially in fashion. Thus, with a titanic clash of modernity and ancient mythology, Vogue Turkey brings us its “Modern Goddess,” Doutzen Kroes, on three covers for March 2014. Cuneyt Akeroglu photographs and fashion editor Konca Aykan styles as this Victoria’s Secret Angel ascends to Olympian heights, showcasing her athletic figure and gorgeous face. In Spring looks by LanvinVionnet, Jenny Packham, and more, Doutzen is equal parts Diana the Huntress and Helen of Troy, asserting the timelessness of the modern woman.

Lanvin Luxe

July 9th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion has the power to transform you, literally. Steven Meisel puts the old adage to the test and takes Edie Campbell on a wild trip through the latest Lanvin collection in the new fall advertising campaign. Portraying six very different personas in the sleek shots, Edie showcases the versatility of Alber Elbaz‘s designs and her innate posing skills – it’s not easy to look chic while holding a duck and wearing a two-tone fur. Her transformations are aided by impressive makeup by Pat McGrath and Guido Palau‘s hair magic, all of which combines to show a fresh side of Ms. Campbell.

Blast from the Past: Claude Montana

November 9th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Looking back on the season that was and some of the runway proportion plays, we started to think back to the larger than life silhouettes of the 1980s. Back when a shoulder pad was de rigueur you couldn’t open up a fashion magazine without seeing the incredible designs of Claude Montana. Focusing on exquisite construction, luxurious materials and of course shape, Montana’s eponymous label flourished from 1979 until 1997, and for two years in the early nineties he even held down the reigns at Lanvin and yes there was life before Alber.

The amount of designers who namecheck Montana as an inspiration is staggering, the late Alexander McQueen cited him as a primary influence and numerous others owe a great deal to Montana’s inventive spirit. Take a trip back to the past with a glimpse at some incredible House of Montana pieces, as worn by top models of the era. The clothes may be over 20 years old, but notice how relevant and modern they still seem – the ruffled skirt on the red suit wouldn’t seem out of place on this season’s Balenciaga runway, the oversized shearling jacket would work with today’s Rag & Bone and that dramatic white column for Lanvin, could appear on any red carpet today and be completely refreshing.
