McQueen Forever

February 16th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Another Magazine always pushes the boundaries of what a magazine can be and its S/S15 issue is a testament to that fact. Focusing on the past, present and future of Alexander McQueen‘s legacy the issue looks back to Lee Alexander McQueen’s archives while nodding to Sarah Burton‘s current collection. Three very different muses grace the front page, rising star Stella Lucia is transformed by Nick Knight in an arresting image, while actress Léa Seydoux is a natural beauty in Collier Schorr‘s portrait. Finally the unmistakable Rihanna poses for Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in custom McQueen. The combination of viewpoints and covers makes for a beautiful tribute to the versatility and creativity that continues to define the McQueen aesthetic.

#DIESELHIGH

February 3rd, 2015 |Posted by models.com

It’s rare to see a smiling face in high-fashion commercial, but in the latest Diesel campaign models Winnie Harlow, Charlotte Free, Gryphon O’Shea, Kiko Mizuhara, Sabrina Ioffreda, Bruce and Surren Senevirate team up and have fun with photographer Nick Knight. The campaign brings us the best easy-going style by artistic director Nicola Formichetti and the images make us feel like we’re hanging out and partying. Limited retouching makes the campaign naturally beautiful and lets the youthful cast shine. The hashtag #DieselHigh has been widely used online for this campaign and with all the infectious happiness the ad provides, it is easy to see why it is going viral.

“There are so many crazy things happening now that you don’t see people just having fun any more. The challenge was to work with an avant-garde photographer, Nick Knight, and get him to do something he’s rarely done – which is shoot people smiling. It feels spontaneous, like they are selfies and he’s just the one snapping the photo.” – Nicola Formichetti

10’s Big Time Sensuality

January 30th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

10 Magazine.
Nick Knight.
Victoria’s Secret.

The girls of VS unite for an edition of 10 that targets sensuality and glamour. In a special collaboration with ShowStudio.com and Nick Knight, editor in chief Sophia Neophitou reimagines the beauties of VS as futuristic pinups. Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, Behati Prinsloo, Lais Ribeiro, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Devon Windsor, Sui He, Cindy Bruna, Barbara Fialho and Ming Xi feature in psychedelic portraits by Knight that radiate sexiness and beauty from his uniquely artistic perspective. The 12 covers are in part a commemoration of VS’s recent jaunt to London for its annual fashion show, but more than that they serve as a truly modern interpretation of sexiness a fact Neophitou cherishes, “Without a moment of hesitation I knew that the perfect person for this creative adventure would be Nick Knight. I can honestly say he surpassed every expectation I had and created a series of memorable, unique images.”

The Elegant Universe

May 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Though the Madonna / Katy Perry coverstory is sure to get the bulk of the attention, the most beautiful editorial in the latest V Magazine belongs to Nick Knight and Lady Amanda Harlech. In ‘The Elegant Universe’ Knight and Harlech utilize the best in Haute Couture to create a fantastical drama involving parallel dimensions, Mandelbrot‘s fractal geometry and Knight’s signature trippy visuals. Model (and mathematician) Alexia Wight is a striking presence in designs from Chanel, Dior and Atelier Versace, shifting in and out of focus as 2D and 3D converge.

View the story in full, along with an accompanying ShowStudio video on VMagazine.com

Cover Confidential

March 20th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Feburary and March are big business for fashion magazines with glossies often debuting some of their best and brightest content during these months focused on spring collections, renewal and change. Take a look back at some of the most interesting covers from the boundlessly creative, to the simply beautiful.

PURE BEAUTY

Antidote Magazine‘s romance issue boasted multiple covers by Cuneyt Akeroglu featuring some of the world’s most beautiful women. United by their simple yet effective photography and their chic take on the magazine’s pristine subjects these covers were something special.

As one of fashion’s coolest faces Leona Binx Walton is typically photographed looking grungy, avant garde or off-kilter. Her Self Service cover with it’s effective beauty statement and clean layout showed another side. Collier Schorr portrait brings out Binx’s beauty, while maintaining her character.

THE BEST OF CELEBRITY

There are few actresses as effervescent as Marion Cotillard and Interview Magazine‘s March cover captured the La Vie En Rose star’s elegant side with a shot by Craig McDean that positively crackles with good ol’ fashioned glamour. Styled by Karl Templer with makeup by Christophe Danchaud and a 40s coif by Sam McKnight the image strikes the right balance between retro film siren and modern glamour - as does the accompanying fashion story. 

On the flip side, Dazed & Confused‘s rough and tumble cover of Scarlett Johansson finds the star’s inner bad girl and brings it to the forefront with a vibrant shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby . The combo of red background and Saint Laurent biker jacket and Scar-Jo’s glare makes for an appealing contrast to the typical smiling celebrity glamour shot.

MINIMAL MARVELS

You can’t go wrong with a picture of Daria Werbowy and The Last Magazine served up an epic large format image the superstar looking foreboding for it’s spring issue –  Mikael Jansson‘s in your face shot captures Werbowy at her rawest and best.

The Gentlewoman always errs on the side of minimalism, but the pulpy red cover of Vivienne Westwood by Alasdair McLellan (Art Partner) was the perfect merger of timelessness and modernity.

CREATIVITY RULES

Nick Knight‘s trippy photography has always struck a chord with surrealists and on the cover of GARAGE‘s spring/summer edition he twists and morphs Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne into unbidden creatures designs that were eventually tattooed onto the skin of Garage readers – how’s that for taking things to the next level.

E.T. got a fashion makeover with Lindsey Wixson taking over the frontpage of CR Fashion Book with an expressive Sebastian Faena image that puts Wixson’s otherworldly visage to good use with a sweet nod to an 80s favorite.

DESIGNER DOMINATION

Karl Lagerfeld’s watercolor inspired spring Chanel collection has proved a hit with editors, in addition to appearing in the pages of just about every magazine imaginable his paint by numbers dresses found themselves on a variety of covers in March, most notably Vogue China, where two of the designer’s creations took center stage.

Not one to be outdone, Miuccia Prada also made a strong showing this March (and April) with a variety of painterly spring looks from her collections showing up on the cover of several different magazines.

High Voltage

February 26th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

To emerge among the several quarterly and biannual publications out there, a competitive magazine has to carve out its niche and present unique, arresting content. Doing just that (and then some), London-based Volt Magazine has amassed an impressive offering for its Issue No. 15. In collaboration with French brand The Kooples, Volt has multiple cover stories for Spring 2014, including Idina May Moncrieffe photographed by Luc Coiffait and Jeremy Dufour shot by Dean Rogers. Generating a comprehensive look at trademark London aesthetics, Volt achieves a captivating balance between urban style and high fashion fantasy. On one hand, there’re “Ordinary Boys” Michael Sharp and Reece Sanders styled by Christopher Preston and a shoot by Piczo, while Jamie Bochert embodies fashion editor Victoria Adcock’s “Femme Severe” and Nick Knight photographs Cynthia Lawrence-John’s stylings in “She Sells Sanctuary.”  Haven’t gotten your high voltage fix? Don’t worry, there’s even more inside Volt 15.
