We Are Vandals

December 5th, 2013 |Posted by victoria

A brand new bi-annual international publication— Vandals Magazine- arrives next week in Paris and we get a special sneak peak at the special portrait series, “We are Vandals” by Mathieu Vladimir Alliard featuring some of the season’s most in demand faces. The black and white series, with the concept to keep the girls as raw as possible “using no hair styling, and employing only one or two bold colors of makeup to create a ‘vandalish’ effect”, is featured here on Models.com exclusively (the issue itself is color and will have different images). The magazine, a 400 page tome, was developed in Paris, produced in New York, and designed in Barcelona, giving it a truly global air. With no ads and based solely on content, Vandals looks to be more than just your average fashion magazine. The magazine’s first issue ‘Volume 0’ will be printed in limited edition and is available on December 16th in Europe, and internationally soon after. Preorder your copy from now-December 15th, and for more from Vandals visit We Are Vandals’s website.

In the meantime, see the preview below; let us know in the comments which is your favorite portrait.

Season to Season

November 15th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The collections come to life in the pages of V Magazine with Sølve Sundsbø and Kacper Kasprzyk shooting resort and couture respectively. A good fashion story never goes out of style and V offers up two distinctive takes on dressing – with Beat Bolliger (Art Partner) styling a sleek resort selection using pieces from Bottega VenetaBurberry and Céline on Zlata Mangafic to create a fashion focused studio shoot with style. Tom Van Dorpe (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) pulls out all the eveningwear stops with his couture selection, utilizing the best  of Valentino and Dior to great effect in Kasprzyk’s moody images, while Manon Leloup pulls off the couture looks perfectly. Take a look at both stories and a special video from the resort shoot.

Campaign Candy

January 25th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Appealing new ads from fashion’s young, innovative designers.

PROENZA SCHOULER

The S/S ads from Proenza are all about a dreamy mood and David Sims‘ imagery featuring the cooler than thou duo of Julia Nobis and Irina Nikolaeva creates a strong, yet ethereal vibe that goes well with the brand’s eclectic Tumblr influenced collection. The mismash of visual styles and inspirations found on the social media site are mirrored in Sims’ colorful, collage approach to the campaign.


THEYSKENS THEORY

Even before Olivier Theyskens took the helm at Theory the brand was about the kind of effortlessly beautiful clothes that girls want to wear. Now that Theyskens is heading things, the famed designer has added an appealingly cool vibe to the collections and the line’s seasonal imagery. Girl of the moment, Wylie Hays is front and center in Willy Vanderperre (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists)’s stark shots as is a highly covetable new Theory handbag.


3.1 PHILLIP LIM

Phillip Lim hits the streets with a stylish campaign that shows you just how much his designs stand out. Katryn Kruger and Franzi Mueller strut down crowded NYC sidewalks in head to toe Lim working those chic Spring patterns and bringing the punky 3.1 look to life in Alessio Bolzoni‘s ad images.


BALMAIN

Balmain keeps it simple with a beautiful David Sims campaign featuring Manon Leloup. When you have a beautiful girl and the intricately decadent designs of Olivier Rousteing, you don’t need much more to entice your audience.
