The Halloween Edit

October 31st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion has always held Halloween in a special esteem. Of all the holidays it allows for the most outlandish changes and transformations which means it is right up fashion’s alley. As such there are countless editorials that serve to inspire a bit of seasonal cheer, or at least serve as appropriate fodder for Halloween costumes. Take a look back at 10 editorials that make us think of all-Hallows eve and share your favorite spooky or kooky fashion story in the comments.

01. Ph. Tim Walker
Publication: Harper’s Bazaar
Who better to look to on Halloween than legendary filmmaker (and master of the spooky story) Tim Burton? Bazaar’s fashion trip through Burton’s filmography is a creepy classic.

Halloween3

02. Ph. Jean-Francois Campos
Publication: Flair
Campos’ Nosferatu-esque zombies might not be as scary as the characters on The Walking Dead but it made for a great spooky editorial.

Halloween1H5

03. Ph. Steven Klein (Art Partner)
Publication: Candy Magazine
There are quite a few Steven Klein stories that could be considered Halloween ready, but his fantastical male pregnancy saga for Candy is probably the most outlandish.

Halloween5

04. Ph. Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello
Publication: Numéro
Sofia & Mauro took inspiration from Divine for this out there story that captures all the kitschy goodness of John Waters’ over the top film.

Halloween1

05. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: American Vogue
The way in which each and every model on this story took on a classic rock persona was downright inspirational – Omhyra as Prince, Karolina Kurkova as Marilyn Manson, Sophie Dahl as Debbie Harry – the work by Pat McGrathGrace Coddington and Orlando Pita on this story was nothing short of iconic.

Halloween2

06. Ph. Peter Lindbergh
Publication: Vogue Paris
Some of fashion’s own characters make for incredible costumes, case in point Sasha P morphing into John Galliano for Vogue Paris.

Halloween6

07. Ph. Thomas Lagrange (Total Management)
Publication: Vogue Japan
You can’t have a Halloween roundup without a little vampirism and LaGrange’s slick beauty story puts a chic twist on bloodsucking.

Halloween1H6

08. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: Vogue Italia
The inspiration for Meisel’s ‘The Discipline of Fashion’ was Ethel Granger, a woman who tightlaced for years in order to achieve a 13 inch waist! You don’t need to go that far to get into the story or the incredible, unnerving visuals.

Halloween1H1

09. Ph. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
Publication: V Magazine
A before and after of epic proportions where Eniko, Anja and Raquel are transformed via the use of Paddy Hartley’s transparent face masks. The clear plastic and cutouts distort the wearers face by changing its proportions in ways that range from beautiful to grotesque.

Halloween1H2

10. Ph. Craig McDean
Publication: American Vogue
Before everyone was running out to grab their Avengers costume, Coco Rocha was playing fashion superhero in the pages of Vogue with this memorable McDean story.

Halloween1H3

Cowgirl Blues

July 16th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Txema Yeste‘s surrealist fashion story for Numéro is a sight to behold. Hana Jirickova sports a wide brim hat and attitude to spare in Yeste’s slick photographs, styled to perfection by Belén Casadevall Hana is a powerful presence in the richly saturated images with their striking visuals. With the furs piled high and luxurious jewels peeking out in every other image the story is heavy on luxury, but it’s the addition of shots like the burning chair that give the story its dramatic feel.

A New View

June 24th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Few photographers have as instantly recognizable a style as Miles Aldridge (D + V Management ). Aldridge’s work is known for it’s bright colors, glamorous socialites and tongue in cheek humor, but it is always fun to see a talented image maker mix it up. In Numéro Aldridge looks to pop artist Sylvie Fleury for inspiration and creates one of his most evocative editorials to date. Auguste Abeliunaite sports cascading feathers and a wardrobe of white columns and capes chosen by Samuel Francois. The cave backdrop creates a striking contrast allowing the elegance of Francois’ fashion selection and Auguste’s natural beauty.

The art and fashion worlds are more intertwined than ever so the latest Numéro with its creative tributes & collaborations with some of the world’s most notable artists feels timely.

Survivalism

May 1st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Luxury fashion might not be the first thing that springs to mind when you’re stranded on a desert island, but who says that a girl can’t accessorize herself out of a bad situation. Laurie Bartley (Management + Artists) creates a decadent version of survivalism in the pages of Numero Tokyo with Querelle Jansen playing the role of well-dressed crash survivor making the best of it in pieces from Louis Vuitton and Proenza Schouler. Stylist Felipe Mendes manages to make even the most extravagant designer pieces work in this unique scenario, while pared down hair and makeup by Dennis Gots (Jed Root) and Diego Sierralta keep Querelle looking disheveled yet unquestionably chic.
