Sense of Midnight

April 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

In most metallic themed editorials the reflective shades are depicted as bold and bright, bursting off the page but Sean and Seng (Management + Artists) offer up a fresh take on the seasons shimmering pieces in the pages Vogue Japan. Focusing on the subtle glimmer of fabric as viewed beneath moonlight, the duo along with stylist Sissy Vian (Management + Artists) capture decadent looks from Dior, Proenza Schouler, Gucci and Haider Ackermann beneath the pale moonlight in a rowboat set adrift in murky waters. Karmen Pedaru plays the role of siren admirably, wearing each look with ease even as a serpent coils around her body.

With its appealing blend of art, culture and fashion Doingbird never disappoints us and the latest issue looks especially promising. With Marte Mei van Haaster gracing the cover in a striking shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby, followed by a creepy cool editorial that oozes chic, quite literally. We haven’t seen anything quite like this before and considering the amount of magazines we pour over, that is saying something! Inside you’ll also find exciting new content featuring Julia Nobis and contributions from everyone from Patti Smith and Ruth Hogben to Daniel Jackson and Rick Owens.

Dark & Lovely

July 25th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With her long black hair and piercing blue eyes, Kinga Rajzak has become the go-to girl for editorials in need of an eerie touch, but just because she’s everyone’s favorite ultra-cool beauty doesn’t mean she can’t deliver classic elegance when called for. Jem Mitchell‘s dynamic beauty shots for Vogue Japan are dark and brooding, but they’re also a sophisticated showcase for the timeless appeal of a berry lip, or smoky eye created by Petros Petrohilos. Chic styling by Jamie Surman, enhances the story, with gothic pieces from Ann Demeulemeester and lacy Dolce & Gabbana setting the sartoriali mood. Hair genius Neil Moodie ads the final bit of polish, crafting elegantly undone styles for Kinga, that mesh with the woodsy setting and folkloric feel.

World Traveler

November 2nd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

British Vogue and Tim Walker take Kirsi Pyrhonen to Mongolia for a story that mixes tradition and fantasy. As one of the last Brit Vogue shoots helmed by Kate Phelan, the story takes on special significance and Walker’s dreamy style is always alluring. Sporting outlandish makeup by Petros Petrohilos and undone hair by Duffy, Kirsi looks like a character from a fairytale. The juxtaposition between the finery of the seasons key looks and the beauty of authentic pieces sourced from the location only adds to the unique feel of the story.
