Re-Edition Magazine Redefines Cool

August 17th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Re-Edition Magazine‘s second issue defines lo-fi cool by tapping prolific yet elusive photogs, muse-worthy castings and rare content. Case in point, two covers, one by Alasdair McLellan with Rianne van Rompaey dressed down in a vintage band tee, plus one by Collier Schorr with Sophia Ahrens sporting dog-chains and a black peaked cap, styled by Caroline Newell. Inside editorials are contemporary 101 meets 90s redux. Filling out the pages, icons Guinevere Van SeenusChloe Sevigny also pose for Collier. Some is new, some is archival, but all is unseen, like Corinne Day archival images – capturing a then-modern world with model Rosemary Ferguson. Fast forward to the now, and Céline girl Frederikke Sofie redefines the present for Robi Rodriguez. All in all, it’s a definite definitive of taste-makers. See the exclusive preview below:

Jackets Required

March 25th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Fashion’s preoccupation with the seventies becomes the ideé fixe for W Magazine’s new Mario Sorrenti shoot that highlights Saint Laurent muse Grace Hartzel alongside a bleached blonde Jaime Ross. Melanie Ward adopts the glamrock eclecticism of Slimane’s LA playground and the story’s creed: “Jackets required. The rest is at your discretion” means there’s no room for staid convention. On that note, Ward styles the duo into disparate, beatnik-chic playmates mixing in plenty of Saint Laurent. Aaron de Mey adds a touch of mod focusing on bold lashes and James Pecis tousles their hair to appear as unattended to as their abandoned hideout. See the full editorial out on newsstands right now.

September’s model domination of magazine covers continues with a stellar showing from down under. Vogue Australia’s simple and effortless image is a testament to less is more – when you have an incredible model, great photographers and a choice piece from Nicolas Ghesquière‘s Louis Vuitton collection you need nothing more.

Fashion’s most talked about designer presents his latest muse in chic style, within the pages of Vogue China with an editorial focused on youthful cool. With a pared down wardrobe of fresh from the runway babydoll dresses and leather jackets, Grace captures the essence of those 90s style icons Slimane is so fond of. Ward mixes in pieces from Elder Statesman, Versace and Dries van Noten to keep things interesting, but these images are all about the Saint Laurent look.

Double Vision : Dior Couture

October 18th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion shows are well and good, but the true test of a collection’s impact is often played out in the editorial pages. When you have multiple editors reaching for the same pieces over and over again you know a designer has hit a nerve. Even when the styling itself isn’t that noticeably different between images, there are always key changes in presentation that separate fashion stories; whether it is the model choice, the manner in which the photographer chose to present the garment, or even something as simple as color vs. black and white, each team puts its own special stamp on things. Take a look at the way in which different magazines have interpreted two of the most popular pieces within the collection and let us know who you think pulled it off best.

Bare Essential

July 11th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With their nude photography Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin have always gone beyond simply sexualizing their subjects and instead pushed towards an artistic and sensual exploration of the human form. In 25 Magazine they capture the always enticing Jessica Miller at her rawest and most daring. Wearing the bare minimum of seasonal finery selected by Melanie Ward and posing with absolute abandon, Jessica looks fierce, free and utterly captivating.
