Vogue Italia Banks on Gigi

November 13th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Gigi Hadid shows there’s power in numbers for her cover story in Vogue Italia‘s latest issue. High off of a Victoria’s Secret catwalk debut, the Californian dream is maximally transformed into a candy-colored hair siren with spunk to spare in this editorial shot by Steven Meisel. Stylist Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele works her audacious magic in zany, flashy pieces from Miu Miu, Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli, and Versace. Beauty looks created by masters Guido Palau and Pat McGrath round off visuals that are playfully dynamic.

Prada’s Cool Kitsch Posse

November 6th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For their latest campaign, Prada enlists a sought-after bunch to pose their fabulously kitsch resort collection for the lens of Steven Meisel. The prettified posse features the likes of Meghan Collison and Julia Nobis, already in a league of their own, to on the rise, newcomer Ina Maribo Jensen. Styled by Olivier Rizzo, the boldly patterned pieces pretty much show-off themselves against the metallic background, but the wanted faces of fashion make it more.  Beauty team  Guido Palau and Pat McGrath add some extra impact with generous curls and a dark emphasized eye. An accompanying video by Gordon von Steiner brings the collection to life with additional attitude.

Miuccia’s World

June 19th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

One can imagine Miuccia Prada’s world “for the slightly disenfranchised” is filled with characters of an uncanny quality. In her designs there’s that murmur of jolie laide that fine-tunes weirdness and statement to resemble the regular (maybe it’s Miuccia’s mime training at work). Her fidelity to art-house actors has filled Prada and, the younger, more capricious, Miu Miu‘s campaigns regularly with a cinephile’s dream ensemble. The Italian empress has pulled from the silver screen A-list talent like James McAvoy, Dane Dehaan, Marine Vacth, and Elle Fanning for previous seasons and A/W 15 is true to form: Craig McDean lensed Scoot McNairy, Michael Shannon, and Tye Sheridan all uniformed in Prada menswear. The Miu Miu campaign photographed by Steven Meisel, entitled “Subjective Reality”, puts Maddison Brown, Hailey Gates, Mia Goth, Stacy Martin on the streets of New York City done up in Miu Miu wares. The images feature brand favorites and leads in Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac”  Mia and Stacy. See both campaigns below.

Fine China

April 23rd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

China has been haunted by literary tropes that have shown but a fraction of the rich, dynastic culture it has. For this summer’s Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition, “China: Through the Looking Glass”, The Costume Institute in collaboration with the Met’s Department of Asian Art, will examine the influence of the Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion. For the latest issue of American Vogue, Steven Meisel and Grace Coddington have taken this examination one step further highlighting elegant, vintage couture creations on the lithe form of Fei Fei Sun. From the blossoming branches of a new season to come to the alluring, sensual mystery of a woman not to be trifled with, this year’s exhibit shows the range of narratives that surrounds the enigmatic country of the Far East.

Pick up the latest issue of Vogue on newsstands this week.

Steven Meisel plays with various styles for his Vogue Italia covers, but many of the best have a cinematic quality that makes them appear like stills from a motion picture. Meisel’s photography is energetic, richly detailed and often seems ready to start moving the moment some unseen director yells “Action!” The February cover of VI is a prime example of this a Dolce & Gabbana clad Lexi Boling may be the first thing to grab your attention, but each detail adds to the story. The sewing machines in the background, Mary Howard‘s comprehensive set design and even the blur of men moving all around Lexi. It all makes for a stunning tribute to fashion workers anchored by Marie-Amélie Sauvé styling, Pat McGrath doing makeup and Jimmy Paul handling hair.

Spanish Influence

December 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Dolce & Gabbana‘s seasonal campaigns always bring Sicilian culture to the forefront with Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana transporting us back to the old country with Mediterranean scenes fit for Fellini. For Spring the designers merge traditions with a campaign centered around Spain’s influence on Sicily. Domenico Dolce‘s images utilize familiar iconography – matadors, mantillas and the elegance of flamenco, to create photographs that are steeped in tradition, yet appealingly minimal. There is an abundance of print, pattern and glitz (this is a Dolce & Gabbana campaign after all) but the pared down backdrop of patinated walls and rustic architecture keeps our attentions on the decadent clothes and beautiful cast. House favorite Bianca Balti is joined by Vittoria Ceretti, Blanca Padilla, Irina Sharipova, Travis Cannata, Xavier Serrano and Misa Patinszki, but the real scene stealers are the dashing bullfighter, José Maria Manzanares and a trio of grinning grandmas who bring a touch of whimsy to every shot they appear in.
