Dazed’s Future Shock

June 4th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Dazed & Confused has always been on the cutting edge and their latest issue is no exception. The headline ‘Future Shock’ on the cover sums up the summer issue’s focus on all things new, exciting and relevant within the worlds of fashion, music and art. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shoot music’s it-girl, FKA twigs for an 18 page portfolio, while the accompanying interview delves into the rising star’s pop-culture influence and upcoming album. Conversations with Boots (producer of Beyonce’s smash visual album), Ai Weiwei, Nan Goldin, Momo Okabe and a final interview of the late great Louise Wilson of Central Saint Martins provide an in-depth look at all that is essential right now. On the fashion front, the five senses are explored via 50 pages of editorial content centered around the latest collections. Jamie Morgan and Robbie Spencer explore touch with Leona Binx Walton with a studio shoot focused on the tactile. Taste is tackled by Julia Hetta (LUNDLUND) and Hannes Hetta with an atmospheric story starring Mijo Mihaljcic. Sound comes to life courtesy of Gregory Harris (Management + Artists) and Tony Irvine (Management + Artists), with Amanda Wellsh playing rocker. Sight is all about Ondria Hardin in bold color combinations, Drew Jarrett’s images styled by Emma Wyman pop off the page. While smell is all about a woody field of flowers with Marte Mei van Haaster luxuriating in the grass in looks by Katie Shillingford shot by Bloomers + Schumm.

The new issue of Dazed hits newsstands on June 5th, but take an exclusive first look at the editorials below and head on over to Dazed Digital for even more.

Modern Mix

September 6th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

For anyone who thought it was impossible to look masculine yet feminine, or perhaps vibrant yet neutral, think again. Stylist Ondine Azoulay shows us that this is in fact possible. Dutch beauty Marte Mei van Haaster models these modern looks shot by photographer Paola Kudacki in the striking editorial below for Vogue Espana’s latest September issue.

First Look: Russh

May 31st, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The new issue of Russh is focused on beauty and it is evident right from the start; with Jourdan Dunn channeling Sade circa Smooth Operator on Benny Horne‘s sleek cover it is hard not to think about all things glamorous. Rather than simply listing cosmetic tips, Russh attempt to explore the issue from all sides, asking what constitutes modern beauty and why our society is intrinsically fascinated with the concept. Naturally, there is plenty of eye-candy to enjoy – from Marte Mei van Haaster shooting a revealing artistic story, to Daniella Rech‘s exploration of clean, fresh scrubbed faces, this edition is filled with a chic, feminine take on what’s gorgeous now.

Past Meets Present: The Mod Moment

January 23rd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

By its very nature, fashion is in a constant state of change, but the industry has a way of rehashing the past every few seasons with collections that draw inspiration from key moments in fashion’s history.  Nostalgia was the predominant fashion mode of the aughts, and it saw  designers revisiting everything from 1920s flapper fixtures, to ’80s powerdressing and (gasp) ’90s grunge redux. We may have just entered into 2013, but when it comes to manufacturing clothing that looks awfully similar to styles that could have been worn generations earlier, designers show no signs of stopping.

Case in point, S/S 13’s mod moment, which saw a wealth of graphic prints invading the runway. Checks, stripes, and houndstooth patterns  made appearances on the runways of labels like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana, offering a pleasant alternative to spring’s tried-and-true florals and providing a bit of deja vu. Granted, these design elements are timeless, but fans of ’60s style will recognize the cuts and patterns that make up these new designs as the hallmarks of mod innovators. Take a look at  the work of Pierre Cardin, Mary Quant, André Courrèges, and Ossie Clark,  and you can’t help but see where Marc Jacobs and co. took their lead from.

With the very same designs getting major play in the pages of this month’s magazines, editors have been showcasing these looks in a variety of ways. Most choose to play up the retro appeal inherent in these collections by creating stories reminiscent of days past: what says ’60s more than an angular Vidal Sasson bob or an oversized bouffant? Others focus in on the graphic element, shooting the pieces against white backdrops and playing up the contrast.

The best of Russh has always been about the feminine yet completely cool girls who never cease to inspire, so what could be more fitting than an issue that pays tribute to inspiration itself. Russh puts a musical twist on things and revisits everything from classic influencers like Patti Smith, to 80s dance film Flashdance and model turned music producer Caroline de Maigret. The end result is an issue that plays out like a compilation of favorites; crowd pleasing, fun and filled with nothing but hits. Take a look at our sneak peek, for a look at the gorgeous new fashion features starring several of the moment’s top girls – Marte, Aline, Kel, Ava, they’re all front and center!

Resort Hits

June 8th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Another season, another set of wearable designs for resort, even if you aren’t headed to your summer house for a seasonal stopover you’re sure to find something you like. Here’s what we’ve been loving from Resort so far – be sure to tell us your favorites in the comments!

BALENCIAGA
Pictured on Liya Kebede, Marte Mei van Haaster & Meghan Collison

Ballet inspired minimalism, that offers a welcome respite from the 80s infused disco vibe that Ghesquière has been giving us lately. A simple, elegant and dare we say it – pretty, collection that feels new. Plus, it goes without saying that those slate & coral heels are set to become an editorial (and street style) sensation.

GUCCI
Pictured on Bette Franke, Karmen Pedaru & Nadja Bender

The Gucci flora print is iconic and Frida has always found interesting ways of incorporating it into her designs. The Resort collection offers a colorful and feminine take on the Gucci standards and even boasts a little restraint – there is only one pastel suit!

DEREK LAM
Pictured on Monika Sawicka & Ava Smith

We admit that we don’t quite see the Coming to America inspiration, but we’re happy that Derek Lam looked to a film that hasn’t been run into the ground for inspiration. All we see is clean, classic American design with a modern twist and really we can’t complain about that.
