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

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

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

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.

Edit of the Week : A Simple Plan

June 1st, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

A good story doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles, sometimes the very best rely on tenants of simplicity. Willy Vanderperre (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) creates an elegant exploration of denim in the latest Vogue Japan with a little help from master stylist George Cortina. Taking one of the most commonplace (and often boring) materials and making editorially relevant is no small feat, but Cortina pulls it off masterfully. On the backs of Marte Mei van Haaster, Katryn Kruger & Victor Nylander the pieces come alive and pared down hair and makeup by Anthony Turner and Lucia Pica add the final bit of polish to a story that feels effortless.

PreFall & Pre-Fails

January 11th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Two pre-fall looks we love, two pre-fall looks we don’t.
The collections dissected with commentary- every other day till the pre-season wraps.

LOVED ITDEREK LAM
This look isn’t reinventing the wheel, but Derek made the whole sage utilitarian thing look so luxe on Caroline Brasch Nielsen that we can’t help but love it. Wearable, practical and completely in line with the pre-fall aesthetic.

WTF?!BALENCIAGA
The problem with being a consumate trendsetter is that sometimes you’re just too ahead of the curve. Nicolas Ghesquiere has perfectly approximated what we’ll all be wearing post-apocalypse, right down to the multiple hats and protective gloves. We can barely see the lovely Marte Mei van Haaster beneath all this!

LOVED ITNINA RICCI
Who can argue with perfection? This dramatic Nina Ricci number looks couture worthy on Josephine Skriver.

OIC…STELLA McCARTNEY
When Stella McCartney labeled herself “too sensible” earlier in the week we failed to see the problem, however after viewing these glorified long johns we’re starting to understand where she’s coming from. There is a time and a place for thermal underwear and pre-fall is not it. Even Marique Schimmel can’t pull off Snuggie-chic.

In A Russh

December 5th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Russh wraps up the year with a beautiful look at laid back fashions and a host of the seasons model MVPs. The “Born to Be” issue embraces the individual, whether they’re wild or tame and provides a Russh take on the fashion extremes. Marique Schimmel graces the hippie chic cover by Nick Dorey and stars in the engaging fashion feature. Inside Marte Mei van Haaster and Monika Sawicka showcase the current trend for deconstructed denim in Amy Troost‘s denim story, while Bambi Northwood Blyth is a beauty come undone in Stephen Ward‘s images. Last but not least, Fresh face Anna Brewster is the picture of ethereal loveliness in Derek Henderson‘s black and white ‘Cloud Street’.

Preview the image for yourself with these exclusives from the Dec/Jan issue of Russh.
