Campaign Candy

January 9th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

MULBERRY

Mulberry’s spring ads are the stuff of Tumblr dreams, Lindsey Wixson, Frida Gustavsson and a giant melting ice cream cone by Tim Walker? The sugar level is off the charts, but who can resist such a sweet treat?! Shot on location in Brighton with set design by  Andy Hillman and styling by Edward Enninful, the girlish ads are joyful and creative. Those cream colored Bayswater satchels and bright high heeled wedges are almost as tempting as the massive hard candies.

ROBERTO CAVALLI

Steven Meisel takes three legendary supers and one outstanding newbie to create a classically minded campaign. Naomi Campbell, Kristen McMenamy, Karen Elson and Daphne Groeneveld join forces for a striking ad that brings to mind Avedon’s epic Versace ads from the 80s.

PROENZA SCHOULER

Natasha Poly as a modern pin up girl is a campaign concept we can get behind. Willy Vanderperre and Olivier Rizzo create an enticing series of images that capitalize on Ms. Poly’s natural allure and the appealing mix of pattern & texture found in Proenza’s spring collection. The clothes are front and center here and they look phenomenal: sign us up for a pair of those heels!

AKRIS

Akris is known for their appealing take on minimal fashions and the spring campaign takes that idea and runs with it. Karim Sadli shoots Daga Ziober in the backseat of a vintage car wearing Albert Kriemler’s gorgeous designs.

As Seen on TV!

January 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Were there an actual Italian Vogue channel we would watch it 24/7 as it would most certainly trump some of the lackluster “fashion” television on the air right now. The Conde Nast entertainment division has yet to provide us with such an incredible gift, but if the January Vogue Italia coverstory is anything to go by there is certainly potential for hilarity and hijinks. Sending up the popular Home Shopping networks with a Steven Meisel story featuring top models is a brilliant idea and one that translates beautifully. While we doubt that you’re ever going to be able to buy that Chanel gown off the back of Daria Strokous QVC, it is amazing to see the land of snuggies and SlapChops invaded by high fashion. With stellar hair by Jimmy Paul and gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana makeup by Pat McGrath all this story needed as a cameo by Joan Rivers to push it over the top and into the realm of iconic editorials.

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.

Beauty Bytes: The Versace Look

November 10th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

When you think of the Versace beauty, there are a few catchphrases that come to mind and smoky eyes are probably pretty high on the list. Using the brand’s heritage and signature look as inspiration Tom Pecheux created the ultimate statement eye for the Versace for H&M show. With the combo of MAC’s matte black Carbon shadow and silver loose pigments, Pecheaux crafted an edgy look that was accentuated by bleached brows. Stars like show opener Natasha Poly worked the look along with lengthy extensions by Orlando Pita and sleek leather bandanas.

The lovely Bianca Balti named the newest face of L’Oreal – this marks the second major cosmetics company to sign a model spokeswoman in recent months. Are cosmetics giants starting to embrace models again after years of relying on actresses?

Speaking of which, Emily Blunt is the new face of YSL Opium following in the footsteps of Sophie Dahl, Kate Moss & Karen Elson.

Makeup artist Alex Box is one of our favorites and her innovative line Illamasqua enters the fragrance realm with a truly inventive scent, Freak. The captivating and gothic blend features notes that wouldn’t seem out of place in a witch’s cauldron. Black davana, belladonna, poison hemlock, datura, queen of the night, frankincense, oud and myrrh are nice individually, but together they’re fantastical. Be one of the first to try it at select Sephoras – it launches this week!

W Editors share their beauty secrets - who is addicted to Rodin Olio Lusso, who is lucky enough to get their haircut by Garren himself!?

20 years after launching 10 revolutionary nude lipcolors at Bergdorf Goodman, Bobbi Brown is still a force in the fashion and beauty industries – no wonder she’s the toast of Paris!

FYI The almost black but not quite nail polish used at the show (and on the nails of the gorge Daphne Groeneveld) is Deborah Lippmann’s Dark Side of the Moon.
