First Look: Document Journal

October 1st, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

In the latest volume of Document Journal, stylist Olivier Rizzo delivers his magic touch, guest editing the magazine into a full on fashion folio with some of photography’s brightest stars and a who’s who cast of intriguing lens-worthy faces. The twelve, Rizzo-styled covers give a swatch sized glimpse into the accompanying editorials by Jamie HawkesworthCraig McDean, Wolfgang TillmansHarley WeirAlasdair McLellan and a whopping 7 by Willy Vanderperre. Editors Nick Vogelson & James Valeri‘s issue preface introduces Rizzo’s significance by saying, “His ingrained devotion to beauty— unconventional, sometimes ugly, and at times simple—led us to him, and him to us, as Document’s guest editor for this issue.” Inside, the exhaustive Vanderperre stories put on display his singularly cool perspective, while other majorly aesthetic imaginings, like Gareth McConnell‘s low-fi, hyper pop pictures or McDean’s fine-tuned shots of Lexi Boling, give another take on what’s current. Take an exclusive first look into the encompassing Olivier Rizzo edited issue with all 12 covers.

French Lesson

January 9th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

French chic is always in style, even in Vogue Australia where Will Davidson and Jillian Davison recreate the feel of the look right down to the berets, baguettes and Breton stripes. Drake Burnette is a refined presence in Davidson’s black and white images, posing in the midst of the Eiffel Tower and along the banks of the Seine looking Parisian even though she hails from Austin and has the Texas tattoo to prove it. All and all the editorial provides an elegant tribute to a theme that has inspired for years and will always hold a special place in the hearts of fashion devotees.

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.

Guerrilla Girl

April 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Considering the complex (and often antagonistic) relationship between the fashion industry and rights issues like human trafficking and fair labor, the idea of a luxury freedom fighter is a bit of an oxymoron. Not that you can’t fight for equality while wearing Celine pumps, but real life rarely offers such opportunities.

Of course that has never stopped fashion from, editorializing the fantasy of guerilla girls dressed in the season’s latest trends. V Spain serves up an intriguing take on the theme with a slick story shot by Nathaniel Goldberg and featuring a series of chic pieces from Margiela, Ralph Lauren and of course Celine all chosen by Gillian Wilkins. The images present a vision of well dressed rebellion and are dedicated to “all the courageous women who defend their ideals. They are masters of their own destiny, their voices songs that celebrate the beauty of freedom.”

Beautiful words, but how do you feel about the pictures? Sporting perfectly tilted berets and wildly hair coiffed by Shon, Edita looks like exactly what she is – a stunning top model playing dress up in revolutionary drag. In some pics it works, especially when she gives that powerful gaze, but even with a dagger in hand or holding down a semi-automatic, she still seems wildly out of place. Perhaps that is intentional – we can’t help but get some Patty Hearst, gun wielding socialite vibes in a couple shots. Let us know what you’re getting from this story in the comments.

Amy Troost shoots four of the season’s finest faces for i-D Magazine‘s royalty issue. With a title cribbed from Gaga lyrics and some tricked out fashion’s chosen by Alastair McKimm, this story is heavy on attitude. Being a queen isn’t always about being prim and proper, these ladies showcase spirited toughness all while wearing royal finery from the likes of Givenchy & Alexander McQueen. Dressed in baroque McQueen complete with headdress, Daga Ziober looks darkly regal Julia FraucheMaria Bradley & Karlina Caune round out the impressive cast.
