Double Vision: Comme des Garçons

November 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Some collections are made for editorial greatness, on the runway they’re good but when a talented team gets ahold of things the stories those garments can tell are limitless. One collection that has found new life editorially is Comme des Garcons‘ excellent fall/winter showing. The exaggerated proportions, bold patterns and plays on dimension have made for some truly striking imagery. Stylists seem to love playing with Rei Kawakubos artful creations, and there are a few looks that keep popping up in magazines month after month. Whether they’re worn by the likes of style legend Iris Apfel, transformed into samurai gear for Meghan Collison, or made part of David Sims‘ stark imagery, it is impossible to miss a CdG piece. Take a look back at some of the most memorable uses of the collection thus far and see how different stylists dealt with some of the more popular pieces.

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.

Combining the legendary Tod’s craftsmanship with Jefferson’s idiosyncratic take on fashion makes for an exquisite array of pieces that are timeless yet modern. The corresponding campaign by Roe Ethridge is just as eye-catching, with Meghan Collison and Christian Brylle looking as nonchalantly cool as ever. Take a look at these exclusive behind the scenes images and interviews to get a feel for the world of No Code.

On the runway Prada’s Spring/Summer mix of car motifs and couch cushion patterns veered towards camp, but in Steven Meisel‘s stunning campaign imagery the very same looks are the perfect blend of elegance and kitsch. Only the very best campaigns can make you rethink a collection, by bringing out its essence. In Meisel’s shots Ymre StiekemaMeghan CollisonKatryn KrugerNatasha Poly & Elise Crombez preen at a gas station on vintage hotrods whose “spiky rear fins and bodies emblazoned with flames reflect the design motifs in the collection.” Press releases aside, the girls are phenomenal, the clothes are elevated to a new threshold and the chunky necklaces from the brand new jewelry collection look like a dream.

Ben Toms brings out the softer side of Meghan Collison for Vogue Russia  in a feminine story styled by Katie Shillingford. With cat-eye glasses and a series of Syd Hayes crafted coifs, Meghan is a vision of 1950s kitsch perfection: Bettie Page would be proud.
