Prabal Power

January 31st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Prabal Gurung‘s seasonal campaigns have always packed a punch but the label’s SS14 imagery is especially evocative. Liya Kebede stars in a series of high contrast shots by Daniel Jackson and the seasoned modeling star adds a touch of power to Jackson’s edgy imagery. With a single rose burning on one side and Liya glaring at the camera this are ads designed to capture your attention. Even the classically minded collection is presented in a fresh manner, with Tiina Laakkonen styling each look to perfection.

Pre-Fall Finery

December 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Pre-fall’s appealing fashions just keep on coming, every day a new set of designers releases their collection and across the board there have been beautiful looks to love. Take a look at a few of our favorites and tell us yours in the comments.

For pre-fall Prabal Gurung namechecked Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet as a reference, so we knew we were in for an exciting mix of the old and new. Mixed prints are all the rage, but no one does them with as much finesse. We’ve seen Gurung do impressive riffs on the traditional floral in previous seasons, but pre-fall’s lush interpretations, whether embroidered or printed are simply stunning. Add in the Mexican textile inspired pieces, Gurung’s unique take on tweed and of course and of course those intense colors and you have the makings of a compelling collection.

Cool girls rejoice, your wardrobe has arrived! Lazaro and Jack never disappoint and their pre-fall look is all about texture, wearability and adaptable pieces that fit right in to your life. We’re already craving those incredible metallics separates and the brand new Courier bag, another surefire Proenza hit.

Is it just us or has the Wu girl evolved into a very sexy miss? S/S saw the designer in a decidedly daring mood with his tasteful dominatrix inspired styles adding just the right amount of darkness to his repertoire. Pre-fall finds Wu continuing to traipse down the road less traveled, with a series of revealing looks that flirt with danger. Sequined gowns with transparent panels showing off a touch of skin, leather accents, touches of gold – it all makes for one scintillating package.


ZAC POSEN

Never one to skimp on the glamour, Zac Posen gave fans a suitably decadent pre-fall collection, filled to the brim with dresses fit for the galas, film premieres and invite-only fêtes Posen girls find themselves attending at least once a week. Opera singer Maria Callas was on Posen’s mind this season and it shows in the diva-worthy ball gowns and theatrical details. Posen makes clothing for women with personality and flair, but just about anyone would look camera ready in that red satin number.

McQueen goes angelic for S/S with Zuzanna Bijoch posing in a heavenly Sims shot that calls to mind classic religious imagery.
