Raquel Renaissance

August 15th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

In the pantheon of essential models, Raquel Zimmermann reigns supreme. With her elegant features and powerful presence in front of the camera Raquel has become a standard bearer and industry icon – after a brief break Zimmermann has stepped back onto the scene, re-teaming with the powerful photographers whom she’s frequently collaborated with and creating a wealth of  impressive editorial and advertising imagery. David SimsSteven MeiselMert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) and Mario Sorrenti (Art Partner) have all worked with Zimmerman recently and the results have been impressive. While only time will tell what’s yet to come for Ms. Zimmermann one thing is certain – we’ll be seeing a lot of her in the coming months.

Supernormal

August 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner) ditch their superglossy style in favor of the naturalistic in this picturesque story from W Magazine‘s star studded September issue. The glamour is still there (it’s hard to shoot a cast this gorgeous without infusing some glamour into the images) but the focus is on the normal, unfussy charm of t-shirts, jeans and hoodies. Led by Kate Moss the beautiful cast poses understated pieces chosen by Edward Enninful, stripped of the gowns and finery the group looks at completely at ease – more like a gathering of good friends than a group of the world’s top models. Daria Werbowy, Mariacarla Boscono, Raquel Zimmermann, Saskia de Brauw, Lara Stone, Suvi Koponen, Meghan Collison, Anna Ewers, Mica Arganaraz, Daan van der Deen, Filip Hrivnak and Steve Milatos make for a gorgeous group – especially in the shots where they’re sporting skivvies and smiles.

Gucci’s Girls

July 3rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Gucci has always had a clear understanding of its ideal woman and each season it picks a cast that reflects that ethos. This time around Frida Gianinni and co. take things one step further with a campaign featuring seven top models who exemplify the modern Gucci woman. Anja Rubik, Joan Smalls, Raquel Zimmermann, Nadja Bender, Suvi Koponen, Karmen Pedaru and Natasha Poly  feature in stylized shots by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. (Art Partner) In a season filled with high concept campaigns it’s refreshing to see ads where the clothes and the girls are at the forefront. The collection’s pastel tones and ultra-luxe accessories are front and center in the simple studio shots that make every item look like a must have.

Art Supply

June 11th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion’s art obsession is in full swing this month and a multitude of magazines are tackling the subject matter with flair. W Magazine‘s artsy offering features the return of Raquel Zimmermann in a contemporary painting and sculpture filled story from Willy Vanderperre (Art Partner). Raquel is always a welcome presence in editorials and posing alongside works from luminaries inside Los Angeles art scene mainstays like the MOCA Pacific Design Center and LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) gives her every opportunity to pose and preen in elaborate ways. Sporting an array of unique designer looks chosen by Edward Enninful, Raquel is just as captivating as the landmark works she’s pictured alongside. Vanderperre and Enninful’s collaboration is exactly the kind of creative story we’ve come to expect from W.

Supersize Me

June 9th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When Jeremy Scott‘s exuberant vision for Moschino premiered on the fall runways the collection provided fashion fans with a tongue in cheek take on consumerism via fast food logos and larger than life slogans. For the corresponding campaign Scott’s outlandish clothes are balanced by elegant Steven Meisel shots of the biggest supermodels. Linda Evangelista, Carolyn Murphy, Raquel Zimmermann, Stella Tennant, Karen Elson and Saskia de Brauw feature in Meisel’s chic black and white portraits appearing chic even while clutching Big Mac bags and blingy baseball caps. With its mix of high and low, humorous and haute the campaign is a perfect representation of the Moschino ethos.

McQueen’s Acid Trip

July 24th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

When we think of David Sims we think of stark black and white portraits, an avant garde take on minimalism, a thousand American Vogue studio stories featuring Raquel Zimmermann and countless other familiar Sims favorites. Not one to rest on his laurels, Sims goes off in a wildly psychedelic direction for Alexander McQueen‘s campaign film featuring Suvi Koponen. Where the campaign was all about pop colors and those exquisite fall looks – complete with iconic visor shades – the video plays out like a kinetic video game. With all the flashing lights and mind bending moments it is a little hard to take in the clothes, but Sims certainly knows how to get your attention.
