The radiant Ms. Bender takes to the pages of i-D in an expertly styled editorial focused on the season’s undone extravagances. Expertly styled in muted colors and featuring pieces from J.W. AndersonComme des Garcons and Rick Owens, Troost’s story fits right in with the issue’s theme of youthful exuberance.

The Look of Daniele & Iango

April 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

There are a lot of talented people on the scene, but it is rare to see a fresh photographer break through the glass ceiling. Let’s face it – most of the high profile work still goes to names like Testino / Lindbergh / Meisel, etc.  and while we love all those greats – charting the progress of newer talent can be riveting.  Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi are in the midst of an editorial moment right now, with beautiful work appearing in i-D Magazine, Vogue Japan, Vogue Germany and V Magazine.

The duo showcases a great deal of versatility within their work, but each image is marked by a certain off-kilter elegance. Whether it is China Machado carefully adding a Rick Owens hair comb to Shalom Harlow‘s up-do, or Natasha Poly posed like a debutante in seafoam Chanel, the pictures are always refined: every detail just so, not a hair out of place. Speaking of which, Danielle and Iango’s refined style is always enhanced by the genius hair stylings of their frequent collaborator Luigi Murenu.

Perfect 10

October 29th, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

Every season there are a few choice moments that get us excited about fashion all over again. Whether these moments come courtesy of established designers or emerging talents is irrelevant: what matters is how these instances make us feel. This season was chock full of excitement for everyone involved, but these were the moments, places, people and things that made me stand up and take note.

01. Alexander McQueen

The show of the season hands-down and a personal favorite: everything, from the sci-fi makeup to the outlandish shoes, was unlike anything else. In a season where designers were cutting back, scaling down and generally eschewing creativity in favor of monotony,Alexander McQueen managed to break boundaries and inspire.

02. Acne

Ingenious little details are what set Acne Jeans apart from other lines; the metal touches on their jeans this season managed to be reminiscent of Balenciaga without feeling derivative. I cannot wait to see these jeans worn in real life by especially daring girls

03. Danielle Scutt

There was something so unabashedly girly about the glittering pink lips Hannah Murray gave the girls at Danielle Scutt’s show. The look isn’t particularly user friendly off the runway, but the hard texture of the glitter just stands out beautifully against that bright fuchsia lip color: tiny little changes can really elevate a look from ordinary to extraordinary.

04. Viktor and Rolf

The idea of Viktor & Rolfsawing into their tulle ball gowns with chainsaws is the kind of ultimate fashion moment that deserves to be preserved. Here’s to hoping that someone has video of the momentous preparations that led up to their S/S show.

05. DARIA at Balmain

In a season dominated by newcomers, it was refreshing to see a familiar face. Ms. Werbowy’s opening slot at Balmain was the highlight of the show – gold lamé bondage dresses notwithstanding – and the selective appearance reminded us just how a true modeling MVP can elevate a whole look.

06. Christopher Kane

Like everyone else looking at Kane, I really expected an encore presentation of either fall’s tough girl chic or last spring’s dainty scalloped edges: unforeseen were the series of plaid dresses straight out of a Laura Ingalls Wilder book. If there was anyone on earth who saw this coming, they deserve either a special medal or their own psychic hotline ala Sylvia Brown. Christopher just keeps us on our toes, even if you didn’t love this collection you still have to wonder just what is coming next.

07. Gareth Pugh

Granted, the Pugh feathers were definitely conjuring images of Phillip Treacy’s creations for McQueen, but you can’t deny the visual impact they gave on the runway.

08. Rick Owens

This was perhaps the lightest, brightest, most freewheeling Rick Owens collection ever crafted. One could practically hear birds chirping in the background, from the cheerfulness of it all.

09. Ohne Titel

If you didn’t pick up on the strappy bondage inspired shoe trend this season, you were either fast-asleep or purposefully ignoring the wave of perilous footwear coming our way. Of all the staggering heels designed to entice our inner foot fetishist, Ohne Titel‘s were the most fabulous.

10. Givenchy

Riccardo Tisci is constantly critiqued for his lack of cohesiveness within collections, but I have always found that the lack of cohesion can make for welcome surprises. One of my favorite dresses of the season was a frothy yellow number worn by Ranya Mordanova: in a collection praised for its graphic black and white severity, this was a welcome and wholly unexpected touch of softness and delicacy. On the right girl – someone please contact Thandie Newton’s publicist – I can imagine this being the perfect spring dress.
