For the Givenchy Fall Winter 2015 campaign Riccardo Tisci kept it in the “just-about” family and when Donatella Versace’s presence was revealed in a preview with Tisci himself and Donatella, it nearly turned the internet upside down. It’s one thing for a designer to be in their own campaign, but including a rival fashion house… In response Tisci has said he considers the Italian empress family and both feel there should be more support within the industry. The brood also features Frankie Rayder, the face of the brand in 1999, amongst the company of Ricardo favorites like Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bochert and Stella Lucia clad in Givenchy. The styling by Carine Roitfeld  is complete with all of Tisci’s subverting calling cards: facial jewelry and septum rings, gothic ornament and severe silhouettes. The familial casting was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott set in the mileu of what could be imagined as their opulent estate. An accompanying campaign video has the stony-faced clan entertaining themselves in the sizable set.

December 22nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When it comes time for campaign season, Givenchy always brings something exciting to the table. Riccardo Tisci‘s mix of models and icons from the worlds of cinema and music is alway visually impactful and for spring the designer taps the Pretty Woman herself, Julia Roberts. Joining Roberts are red hot beauties Imaan Hammam, Mica Arganaraz, Alessio Pozzi and Lucia Pieroni (Los Angeles: Streeters Los Angeles, New York: Streeters New York, London: Streeters London), Tisci favorites who look elegant in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner)’s bike babe images styled by Katy England.

Seeing Spots

May 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When Haider Ackermann filled his S/S13 runway with transparent creations emblazoned with black and white dots, it seemed like an unusual move. Polka dots are a fashion standard dating back years, but the diminutive patterns are more often associated with the prim styles of the 1950s than with the kinds of cutting-edge wares favored on Paris’ runways. The designer so known for his innovative use of lush, saturated color was showing another side, taking one of the most uncool of motifs and making it feel new.

In keeping with the current craze for all things graphic, stylists have embraced the versatility of these simple circles, working Ackermann’s creations into a variety of editorials. On occasion the interpretations don’t veer too far from the runway approach (fashion abides by the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ mantra whenever it can) but the excitement comes when the spots are complimented by clashing patterns to create a dynamic visual treat. Whether it is layering in another of Ackermann’s prints from S/S or adding a bold kimono for interest, the real fun lies in the mix which offers stylists an opportunity to show their creativity.
