Consistently Kors

July 17th, 2013 |Posted by models.com

With the recent release of the Michael Kors F/W 13 campaign, other than stating the obvious of ‘stylish’ and ‘glamorous’, the best word to describe the campaign is ‘consistent’ — and we mean consistent in the best way. Michael Kors’ leading man and lady, Simon Nessman and Karmen Pedaru, are 2 of the main reasons for the fabulous consistency in Kors’ campaigns. The jet-setting duo is flawless in the latest, shot by none other than Mario Testino, his 10th year shooting for the designer.

Take a look at the new F/W 13 campaign below, followed by some of our favorites from the designer:

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.

Who’s That Girl?

June 25th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Ever since she dougied into our hearts little over a year ago, Kate Upton has been blazing a sexy path towards world domination. You’ll find Ms. Upton bikini clad and suggestively licking an frozen treat on the cover of this month’s GQ, but there is more to her than those now famous curves and legions of male admirers. Take a look at her chic side in the new American Vogue, Sebastian Kim‘s images of Kate looking polished in designs from Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler and Altuzarra offer fresh spin on Upton’s appeal. We think she looks right at home in the equestrian finery chosen by Katie Shillingford.

Michael’s Mystique

September 1st, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Michael Kors has a thing for elegant Estonians: for years Carmen Kass reigned supreme as the glamorous face of the megabrand, only to pass the torch to the equally alluring Karmen Pedaru. In Interview‘s September issue Mikael Jansson and Karl Templer showcase the brand’s fall looks in the sexiest possible way, with glimpses of skin and a sleek shift in perspective. The upward angle used in Jansson’s images makes Karmen look like a goddess and the monochromatic looks created by Templer make Kors’sportswear look refreshing.
