Mikael Jansson takes a voyage upstate for a rustic editorial that pairs pieces from fashion’s most luxurious labels with a down home backdrop that speaks to America’s working class roots. Wearing Louis Vuitton and Prada to the local rail-station or back-alley isn’t an every day occurrence, but in the knowing hands of Karl Templer the pieces seem down to earth rather than lofty. As worn by the youthful cast led by Grace Hartzel, Tami Williams, Harleth Kuusik, Nastya Sten, Vanessa Moody, Waleska GorczevskiDani Witt and Julia Hafstrom these designer looks represent the dressed down uniform girls everywhere. With this story Interview Magazine adds another hit to this month’s impressive editorial lineup.

Prada’s Pastiche

May 21st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Miuccia Prada‘s fall collection offered a subversive take on the films of Fassbinder and all things connected with German art, so it seems fitting that the corresponding campaign is equally esoteric. Mica Arganaraz and Karl Kolbitz pose against a backdrop of brutalist architecture as Steven Meisel shoots the duo looking aloof and oh so elegant. Prada is known for its inventive campaigns and quirky videos, so this seasons reserved almost severe imagery feels like a refreshing change of pace.

First Look: Lurve

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by

Lurve Magazine‘s next era kicks off with a stellar issue with a fresh perspective on fashion. Editor in chief Lyna V. Ahanda, new fashion director Moreno Galatà and fashion editor Alessandra Conti create an issue focused on a modern interpretation of 90s style fashion photography. Bringing all the raw energy and individualism that defined the 90s aesthetic back into the mix is an inspired move and one that makes each editorial feel vital.

The issue’s six covers take the theme head on with a diverse lineup of models & photogs; reportage photographer Olivia Arthur shoots model Adwoa Aboah in Louis Vuitton; while Lily McMenamy sports Céline in a stylized shot by Sonia Sieff. Queen of cool Caroline de Maigret shows another side in an elegant image by Alessio BolzoniRobbie McKinnon sports a brush and stacks of vinyl in his cheeky cover by Edmund Aves. The always chic Elisa Sednaoui is serene in Prada in her cover by Laurence Ellis (Visual Artist UK ) and Hanne Gaby Odiele delights in a striking image by Dario Catellani (Paris: ArtList Paris, New York: ArtList NY)

Inside the content is every bit as compelling as the covers, with an array of contributors providing exciting new edits that adhere to that avant garde 90s spirit. Each story is special in its own way, but famed street photographer Nick Turpin providing his first fashion work, shooting Neelam Johal in a museum setting is a bonafide moment.

Endless Summer

April 3rd, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

Last fall, while the rest of the world was settling in for winter, Self Service hit the L.A. coastline for a glimpse into Summer 2014. Soaking up 48 hours of sun and surf, Anna Ewers and Kirsty Hume strike a perfect pair of beach blondes in this carefree California editorial, photographed by Glen Luchford (Art Partner). Anna and Kirsty join up with a band of surfer dudes, catch a few waves, and laze on the shore, all the while sporting spring’s most enviable fashions styled by Marie Chaix (Art Partner). Like any beach weekend, Anna and Kirsty’s jaunt isn’t without its hijinks; after swapping Prada and Proenza Schouler for a wetsuit, Anna goes rogue, paddling out in full Chanel.
