No Code

January 25th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Are industry insiders the new designers? Tod’s seems to think so, the venerable Italian brand partners with Jefferson Hack for NO CODE, a capsule collection for men and women. 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.

See the entire collection on the NO CODE web site.

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.

Timely Fashion

August 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

One of the fall fashion issues that really caught our attention was New York Times T Magazine. Under the direction of Sally Singer and with a little help from the likes of Hedi SlimaneDanko SteinerSebastian Kim and more, the issue features a vivid assortment of editorials and and an equally appealing lineup of top models. The issue is an absolute must have, but don’t take our word for it – have a peek inside and see for yourself.

Coupling

April 21st, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Sebastian Faena presents an unexpectedly subdued story for VMan. Meghan Collison, Sean O’Pry, Siri Tollerod and Christian Brylle, cast by Andrew Weir, star as two well dressed couples in Faena’s 60s inspired studio edit. Both pairings are unexpected but work surprisingly well together – who knew Meghan and Sean would look so good together? Mattias Karlsson‘s impeccable styling keeps the couples coordinated and the sky high beehives by Holli Smith add to the retro feel.

Modeling news:
We talked about, LVMH’s new site, the Nowness. Here’s Guinevere Van Seenus for Rodarte, which premiered yesterday.

One of my personal FAVORITE models of all time: Renee Simonsen. Ford gives us an overview of her career and what she’s up to now!

Russian girls are always stunning. Check out this new young lady with Women Milan.

Jessica Stam and Agyness Deyn to design! 2 more model slashes!

Coco Rocha is engaged! Congrats!! And speaking of Coco, Fashion Week Daily takes to the streets to find out who/what people think a “Coco Rocha” is...

We agree with Jezebel, why are there blondes on these covers?

And yes, more models of color on the runway, please. 16% non-white is still not enough.

How cool are Greg Kessler‘s Model Morphosis for the NY Times?

The fashion industry is filled with people with unhealthy habits. For the young models who are struggling with their weight, please don’t ever let it get to this point (and if it does, get help).

Karen Elson is Fierce with a capital “F”. Gorgeous, funny, and talented? You’ve doing better than 90% of the TV/movie stars out there, Karen!

Another wonderful young lady that we adore, Agyness Deyn shows us another side to her multi faceted life.

Fashion and media:
Another reason we love Grace Coddington and Andre Leon Talley. They are old school with a capital O.

Guy Trebay, of the NY Times talks to WWD about the new media and bloggers. See what he thinks about Tavi and Bryanboy.

Miscellaneous:
Funny, funny post on Olivier Zahm by Frockwriter.

In the wake of Alexander McQueen‘s tragic death by suicide, it is really great to see the work Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe is doing. If only more people in high profile industries would give back to the world like this….

Read photographer David Benjamin Sherry’s open and wonderfully refreshing interview on being gay and how photographer Collier Schorr was his professor!

Gaga for Givenchy

October 6th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Givenchy S/S 2010

Givenchy has become the Paris show to watch when it comes to eclectic casting. With its mix of re-discovered favorites, fresh faces and house staples there was truly something for everyone. Whether you’re a 90s model fan enjoying the welcome shock of seeing both Michele Hicks and Kirsty Hume on the runway again or new faces watcher charting the course of fast rising star Antonella Graef there was excitement to be found. Riccardo Tisci’s graphic black and white collection shone on each and every model selected but there were a few girls in particular that grabbed our attention.

Antonella Graef

Antonella opens Givenchy

While Antonella Graef (Top S/S 10 Newcomer) snagged the bulk of our attention with her second time opening Givenchy (she opened couture too) there were almost too many cool girls to count. Mirte MaasAlla Kostromichova and Jacquelyn Jablonski continue to book only the best shows and top 10 newcomer Frida Gustavsson‘s winning streak extended into Paris. Exclusives like the Elena Ivanova (WM Paris) and Nastya Karzan provided welcome surprises and Tisci favorites like Lily Donaldson, Iselin Steiro, Lakshmi Menon and Meghan Collison all made appearances – important to note given just how many established girls spent their S/S seasons away from the catwalk.

Girls of Givenchy

Gwen Loos (Marilyn). Emily DiDonato. Jacquelyn Jablonski.

One of the most continuously interesting things about Givenchy’s casting is that each season it manages to change our view of certain girls. Take Maybelline face Emily DiDonato for example. Pre-Givenchy and she’s the the definition of wholesome, All-American sexiness (witness OTM’s video interview with her)-  a little eyebrow bleach and matte lipstick later and she’s one of Tisci androgynously beautiful heroines. Same goes for Italian bombshell Bianca Balti and the sultry Elena Melnik. The way every girl transforms once they enter into Tisci’s world is really what makes this show as powerful as it is season after season.
