First Look: The Last Magazine

February 7th, 2014 |Posted by Betty

The Daria Werbowy allure isn’t about a look as much as it’s about an attitude. With her innate presence and nonchalant take on fashion, the Canadian superstar has inspired the greats of the business. Is it any wonder then that she’s on her second cover of The Last Magazine. Shot by Mikael Jansson and styled by Alastair McKimm, the arresting image perfectly captures the Werbowy allure – cool, collected and complete with now famous nosering. In the accompanying story Mark Carrasquillo (Art Partner) provides the sleek makeup, while Yannick D’Is (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) creates slicked back hair, both of which add to the dramatic beauty of Jansson’s high contrast shots. With an up close and personal view of one of the world’s most beautiful women, the expressive photos are sure to look incredible in The Last’s larger than life format.

In Theory

February 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Olivier Theyskens takes the creative reigns of Theory‘s SS14 campaign and the end result is every bit as sophisticated as you’d imagine. Stella Tennant and Clement Chabernaud take center stage in black and white images from Lachlan Bailey (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) that were shot on location in Brooklyn. With Ludivine Poiblanc (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) providing styling and Christopher Simmonds art directing, the minimalist campaign portraits offer a less is more take on glamour that is right in line with Theory’s trademark elegance.

First Look: Details’ Supermodels

February 4th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

The big March issues are making their way onto newsstands this week, and now Details has entered the fray with a guaranteed winner. Those who complain about the dearth of models on magazine covers will surely be cheered by the sight of not one, not two, not even three, but ten of today’s biggest superstars shot by celebrity photographer Mark Seliger (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists). Casting director Edward Kim gathered Garrett Neff, Clement Chabernaud, Noah Mills, Tyson Ballou, RJ Rogenski, Andres Velencoso Segura, Mathias Lauridsen, Arthur Kulkov, Simon Nessman, and Sean O’Pry for an iconic group shot that expands across a triple fold out. Dressed by Benjamin Sturgill, the ten are shown in some of spring’s sharpest pieces, and the accompanying feature within finds them surrounded by the buzzing lights of a classic New York night. Vanity Fair can have Julia Roberts and George Clooney; we’ll take these guys any day. (Images exclusively for models.com courtesy of Details, for video and more, go to Details.com)

Mystical Season

January 30th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The artistry of the season’s most talked about collections comes to the pages of  Vogue Japan in an expressive story by Paolo Roversi. Starring a trio of white-hot platinum blonde beauties and featuring several of the season’s most esoteric collections, the story provides an appealing roundup of spring’s detail oriented designs.  Maja Salamon, Ola Rudnicka and Sasha Luss feature in Roversi’s images wearing pattern heavy pieces selected by Nicoletta Santoro (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) and sporting intense glares. The only thing more alluring than the girls are all those exquisite collection separates – CélinePradaMarniGivenchy and even a touch of fashion’s print master, Dries Van Noten.

Spring Forward

January 29th, 2014 |Posted by jonathanshia

You wouldn’t know it from the frigid cold gripping New York City at the moment, but spring is just around the corner, and that can only mean one thing: new campaigns. After our round­ups of the best Spring 2014 womenswear ads (here and here), we thought it was time to give the guys their fair due. Here’s our picks for some of our favorite men’s campaigns for the season, all of them featuring rich explosions of color to help us through these dreary, gray winter days.

tumblr_mz1q7argpR1r4ps7po1_12801-763x1024
Hugo Boss HUGO line
Last July, photographer Pierre Debusschere hit the Utah salt flats—home of the famed land­speed trials so powerfully illuminated in Rachel Kushner’s breakout 2013 novel The Flamethrowers— for Hugo Boss’ energetic, athletic younger label. Victor Nylander, Sung Jin Park, and Andrew Westermann are joined by Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Kasia Struss and the lambent, translucent hues of what look like shimmering mirages, add a soft tinge of glowing color to the blinding whiteness of the pristine sodium crust.

222137-800w
Jil Sander
The namesake designer may be once again dearly departed, but she has left her artistic, distinctly modernist fingerprints all over the house’s latest campaign, shot by David Sims. Ben Waters and Edie Campbell wear their sharp, graphic ensembles —distressed plaid for him and tangled florals for her against a faded background combining the strictest geometry with the soft delicacy of nature.

213814-800w
Kenzo
In their second collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari‘s idiosyncratic art magazine Toilet Paper, designers Humberto Leon & Carol Lim have demonstrated their revolutionary talents extend far beyond their charming runway designs. A relaxed Devon Aoki perches upon a trout carried on Paul Boche‘s shoulders, both of them dressed in a soothing, swaying ripple print inspired by the surf of Leon and Lim’s native Southern California and lit by the harsh glow of red neon.

Patrik Ervell
After making a stunning campaign début with his stark black ­and­ white images of Max Von Isser in an overgrown field last Fall, Ervell enlisted up ­and­ coming photographer Daniel Sannwald (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) for an appropriately luminous series of images that find Michael Lange wearing his sailing­ inspired pieces against the digitally enhanced shine of an impossibly rich and vibrant oceanic sunset.

Salvatore Ferragamo
The Italian house’s campaigns can sometimes have an anodyne feel of anonymous luxury to them, but Spring finds Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) bringing a vivid pop of classic Modernism to their images. Stalwarts Sean O’Pry and Daria Werbowy bask in the radiant warmth of the sherbet­colored angles and columns that bring to mind the cheery, iconic designs of the Mexican Pritzker Prize–winning architect Luis Barragán.

Sur les Quais

January 28th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Vogue Paris vision of French chic has always been streetwise and for the latest issue Lachlan Bailey (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) and stylist, Claire Dhelens create an appealing take on denim dressing that feels completely authentic. The always gamine, Kati Nescher poses in a mix of natty sweaters, plaid scarves and distressed jeans that look easy without seeming undone. Dhelens mix of contemporary favorites like Paul & Joe, Esprit and Gerard Darel merges together so seamlessly it’s easy to believe they were simply plucked from the closet of one very cool girl.
