Vuitton’s New Groove

June 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As one of the ultimate luxury brands Louis Vuitton has to take things just one step further than the rest. Case in point Nicolas Ghesquière‘s first campaign for LV, which boasts three of photography’s biggest names – Juergen Teller, Bruce Weber and Annie Leibovitz. Each superstar was given free reign to interpret Ghesquière’s fall collection and photograph some of his many muses. Naturally Liya Kebede, Freja Beha Erichsen and Charlotte Gainsbourg make appearances and newcomers Jean Campbell and Kirstin Liljegren star alongside the three Ghesquière vets. The striking Series 1 ads are a completely new direction for LV and serve to usher in the brands thrilling new chapter under Ghesquière.

First Look: Document No. 4

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

documentj

Many magazines set out to bridge the worlds of art and fashion, but few compare to the engaging volumes Document assembles with each issue. After last fall’s Paul McCarthy designed cover, Document’s offering for S/S 14 continues to combine arresting editorials, bastions of the contemporary art world, and vital conversations to provide a comprehensive window onto today’s cultural landscape.

Seeking “spontanaeity, authenticity, and simplicity,” Document No. 4 addresses authorship with photographer Nan Goldin, architecture with Brazil’s Carla Juaçaba, and diversity with Liya Kebede and Bethann Hardison. Elsewhere, fashion crossovers Willem Dafoe and Erykah Badu discuss unique presence in the respective worlds of cinema and music, while legends of style Didier Malige (Art Partner) and Joe McKenna (Art Partner) collide to discuss fashion past, present, and future.

As for the editorials, Document showcases top models Malgosia Bela and Freja Beha Erichsen on two different covers that illuminate each versatile beauty’s standalone presence. Photographer Benjamin Alexander Huseby shoots Malgosia styled by Jodie Barnes in an array of guises that hit the season’s boldest trends. Exploring performance, photographer Collier Schorr captures Freja’s nuanced turn as a Method actor. The unstoppable Amanda Wellsh plays around before Alex Olson’s lens, Lily McMenamy styles herself for a profile of designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, and things turn surreal when Camilla Akrans (Stockholm: LUNDLUND, New York: Management + Artists) shoots Missy Rayder. Not to be surpassed in the months between biannual issues, Document and photographer Christian MacDonald nominate 17 of spring’s most promising faces, all sporting pre-Fall looks styled by Document’s Fashion Director James Valeri.

Be on the lookout for Document No. 4, on newsstands now.

Women on Top

March 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Who can resist the allure of a magazine dedicated to dynamic, intelligent and take charge women! David Vivirido and Francesco Sourigues, the forces behind Hercules Magazine unveil their vision for women with Vamp Magazine, a tour de force take on fashion dedicated to those who are unafraid to speak their minds and express themselves via the best in power-dressing. The cover tagline “Being the woman you’ve always wanted to be” offers a compelling call to action – it isn’t enough to just wear pretty clothes, a girl has got to take on the world with gusto. The founders offered a mission statement of sorts to Business of Fashion and described the glossy’s ideal reader in no uncertain terms, “Vamp is for women who want to get ahead, stamp their foot and make a statement.”

We love the sound of that and the look of the 6 incredible new covers, which feature an impressive lineup of modeling fixtures. Each cover star is an impressive woman with personality to spare, from industry standard bearers like Carolyn Murphy and Liya Kebede, multi-hyphenate Rosie Huntington Whiteley, campaign queen Karmen Pedaru and in demand it-girls Andreea Diaconu and Emily DiDonato.

Prabal Power

January 31st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Prabal Gurung‘s seasonal campaigns have always packed a punch but the label’s SS14 imagery is especially evocative. Liya Kebede stars in a series of high contrast shots by Daniel Jackson and the seasoned modeling star adds a touch of power to Jackson’s edgy imagery. With a single rose burning on one side and Liya glaring at the camera this are ads designed to capture your attention. Even the classically minded collection is presented in a fresh manner, with Tiina Laakkonen styling each look to perfection.

Double Debut

January 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

One of the last season’s most compelling new beauties was the lovely Imaan Hammam, a Givenchy exclusive who opened Tisci’s dazzling S/S show and captured our attention with her graceful presence and unique look. In the months since Imaan has been showing up in all the right places, particularly in the pages of American Vogue where she headlines not one but two stories in the January issue. Posing alongside Liya Kebede in Mikael Jansson‘s tropical escape editorial and showing a completely different side in Craig McDean‘s chic collections story.

Class Acts

April 10th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When in doubt, go for elegance. The latest ad campaigns eschew gimmicks and rely instead on the kind of classic polish that never goes out of style. Bastion of uptown chic Tiffany & Co. enlists the new generation of top models in a stylish campaign by Michael Thompson that puts those fabulous jewels on superstars Liya Kebede,Liu Wen, Arizona Muse, Karen Elson and Doutzen Kroes. The stunning cast adds a touch of freshness to one of luxury’s oldest names, while Thompson’s graceful shots show the timeless appeal of gemstones.

Prada’s pre-fall shots are every bit as beautiful, but there is a hint of edge in Steven Meisel‘s minimal studio shots. Irene HiemstraAmanda Murphy and Vanessa Axente look pristine in Meisel’s imagery and the pared down collection provides a down to earth, yet wholeheartedly Miuccia take on seasonal dressing. What could be more classic than a whole lot of gingham and a good ol’ fashioned statement bag?
