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.

Americana

June 17th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Mikael Jansson takes a voyage upstate for a rustic editorial that pairs pieces from fashion’s most luxurious labels with a down home backdrop that speaks to America’s working class roots. Wearing Louis Vuitton and Prada to the local rail-station or back-alley isn’t an every day occurrence, but in the knowing hands of Karl Templer the pieces seem down to earth rather than lofty. As worn by the youthful cast led by Grace Hartzel, Tami Williams, Harleth Kuusik, Nastya Sten, Vanessa Moody, Waleska GorczevskiDani Witt and Julia Hafstrom these designer looks represent the dressed down uniform girls everywhere. With this story Interview Magazine adds another hit to this month’s impressive editorial lineup.

Survivalism

May 1st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Luxury fashion might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you’re stranded on a desert island, but who says that a girl can’t accessorize herself out of a bad situation. Laurie Bartley (Management + Artists) creates a decadent version of survivalism in the pages of Numero Tokyo with Querelle Jansen playing the role of well-dressed crash survivor making the best of it in pieces from Louis Vuitton and Proenza Schouler. Stylist Felipe Mendes manages to make even the most extravagant designer pieces work in this unique scenario, while pared down hair and makeup by Dennis Gots (Jed Root) and Diego Sierralta keep Querelle looking disheveled yet unquestionably chic.

First Look: Lurve

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

Lurve Magazine‘s next era kicks off with a stellar issue with a fresh perspective on fashion. Editor in chief Lyna V. Ahanda, new fashion director Moreno Galatà and fashion editor Alessandra Conti create an issue focused on a modern interpretation of 90s style fashion photography. Bringing all the raw energy and individualism that defined the 90s aesthetic back into the mix is an inspired move and one that makes each editorial feel vital.

The issue’s six covers take the theme head on with a diverse lineup of models & photogs; reportage photographer Olivia Arthur shoots model Adwoa Aboah in Louis Vuitton; while Lily McMenamy sports Céline in a stylized shot by Sonia Sieff. Queen of cool Caroline de Maigret shows another side in an elegant image by Alessio BolzoniRobbie McKinnon sports a brush and stacks of vinyl in his cheeky cover by Edmund Aves. The always chic Elisa Sednaoui is serene in Prada in her cover by Laurence Ellis (Visual Artist UK ) and Hanne Gaby Odiele delights in a striking image by Dario Catellani (Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)

Inside the content is every bit as compelling as the covers, with an array of contributors providing exciting new edits that adhere to that avant garde 90s spirit. Each story is special in its own way, but famed street photographer Nick Turpin providing his first fashion work, shooting Neelam Johal in a museum setting is a bonafide moment.

Desert Song

March 24th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Boo George.
Beat Bolliger (Art Partner).
Isabeli Fontana.
Vogue China.

In the midst of the dessert a vision of glamour emerges. Isabeli lends her showgirl panache to George’s atmospheric images as Bolliger works in an array of eye-catching pieces from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Agent Provocateur. Sequins, marabou feathers and other exquisite details abound but when these luxurious trappings are paired with the faded, dreamlike style of the photographs it creates a haunting mood.

Hey, Big Spender!

March 14th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

Whetting your envy for retail therapy, British Vogue’s April issue follows a bevy of fresh faces as they embark upon a shopping fantasy along Paris’ storied Avenue Montaigne. Nigel Shafran shoots 9 rising girls—Estella Brons, Binx Walton, and Olympia Campbell among them—as they set to popping tags at fashion’s biggest brands, including Céline, Louis Vuitton, and Alaia. Snapping each girl at a different stage of the shopping ritual, the series finds Natalie Westling at David Chipperfield’s Valentino boutique and Ine Neefs hilariously praying before the window at Chanel. Though Irina Liss and Elodia Prieto are the only girls seen leaving stores with bags in tow, we can’t pity the others; styled by Joe McKenna, every girl, from Harleth Kuusik to Alewya Demmisse, looks like she owns the place. / See the full story on MAP

Deep Dark

March 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Who better to explore the gothic side of fashion than the illustrious team of Craig McDean, Karl Templer and Sasha Pivovarova. With an eye for the atypical and a brooding ferocity that works it’s way into every image, the team creates an expressive vision with a dark twist in the pages of Interview Magazine. With pieces from Alexander McQueenLouis Vuitton and Tom Ford the story focuses on larger than life fashion, rejecting the convention that Spring stories need to be light, bright and filled with saccharine florals. With an inky black coif courtesy of Orlando Pita and understated makeup by Diane Kendal, Sasha is appropriately spooky and adds flair to McDean’s dramatic images.

A Grand Finale

December 19th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Marc Jacobs tenure at Louis Vuitton comes to a close with a stellar campaign shot by Steven Meisel and featuring a series of the designer’s muses. Film legend Catherine Deneuve, director Sofia Coppola and actress Fan Bing Bing share space alongside models Gisele Bundchen, Edie Campbell and Caroline de Maigret in Meisel’s elegant images. Sporting Mona Lisa smiles and pieces from Jacobs’ dramatic final collection Marc’s muses each represent a facet of the Vuitton ideal. Meisel’s portraits with their refined styling by Karl Templer, exquisite makeup courtesy of Pat McGrath and chic coifs by Guido Palau imbue his subjects a regal quality and capture the essence of each woman.
