First Look: Document Journal

April 29th, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko

The soon-to-be-out S/S ’16 issue of Document Journal is a who’s who of the here and now, and if the 8 covers fronted by fashion’s royalty like Hedi Slimane and Grace Coddington didn’t tip you off, then here’s the inside to take you there. Between the amusing and uncommon imaginings of collaborators like Willy Vanderperre and Olivier RizzoColin Dodgson and Joe McKennaRoe Ethridge and Robbie Spencer to the pleasurably picturesque–like Coco Capitan‘s unassuming take on Lena Hardt or Venetia Scott‘ suburban-backdropped portraits styled by Sarah Richardson, there’s probably nowhere better to be. Starting now, Richardson will be the magazines new fashion director. Casting goes full out too, to good effect thanks to Piergiorgio Del Moro and Samuel Ellis Scheinman: models Stella TennantRianne van RompaeyAlice MetzaEstella Boersma plus more, use their respective demand to bring the issue to the far side of choicest.

Vogue Italia’s Grand Ole Party

March 28th, 2016 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

A fleeting glimpse into the new issue of Vogue Italia reveals a spectral Natalie Westling presented in the finest wares of the season. Paolo Roversi shoots in his hazy style the nymph in selected Chanel couture pieces that fray, glimmer and gleam courtesy of the skilled eye of stylist Robbie Spencer. Westling’s garnet ringlets are left purposely piecey and matched with otherworldly pale skin and a rouged pout thanks to the skilled hands of beauty team Shon and Marie Duhart respectively. Hypnotic and dazzling, the chic fashion story captivates in its simplicity as much as its charm.

Take a peek at some of the images below.

Modern Day Rebels

March 4th, 2016 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Issue 4 of Re-Edition Magazine declares “We have everything and we have nothing” (by way of Bukowski) and with that obscure aphorism offers up its ink to the foremost underground talents who stay true to their own nonconformist roots.  Six covers so seemingly simple they’re beyond any traces of superficiality. With Re-Edition, content is king and creative forces like Willy VanderperreHarley WeirCollier Schorr, Mark BorthwickRobbie SpencerLotta Volkova and designer Gosha Rubchinskiy see to that in a respective effort. Casting underlines the lesser seen, but captures the defining spirit of the modern day rebel. The styling’s rakish, the faces are unique and the visuals equal it all–everything and nothing, too.

Dazed Makes Magic

November 19th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

The winter issue of Dazed & Confused magazine asks “Do you believe in magic?” It would seem so from the singular talent of cover photographer Collier Schorr who oft turns the ordinary into magic. Here done twofold as she lenses the already unordinary faces of Julia Nobis and Rianne van Rompaey for an inside Louis Vuitton portfolio styled by Robbie Spencer. The mix of simple color play and Collier’s seemingly effortless eye turns out a pair of undisguised, model-centric covers.

Robbie Spencer, Creative Director at Dazed added insight into the cover story saying, “For us, Julia and Rianne represent a new generation of supermodel and are redefining what the term even means. They are enduring and chameleon-like and represent a shift in casting aesthetics within the fashion industry today. We wanted to portray Julia and Rianne in a more real and stripped back way for the covers compared to how they are usually seen in magazines, and as such they were the perfect subjects for Collier. Wearing Louis Vuitton’s Cruise collection and Collier’s personal baseball caps, we focused on their personality and the way they would wear the collection. Models are so often used as mere blank canvases to turn into different characters, but we felt Julia and Rianne didn’t need any make up or distractions. They are both so unique and have such a strong presence in front of the camera.”

The rest of the issue, out next week, features Tinashe, Coco Gordon Moore, Nicolas Ghesquière, Beth Ditto, Anjelica Houston, Rila Fukushima and more.

She’s a Day Tripper

November 16th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For V Magazine‘s latest issue, the defining face of the aughts Gemma Ward brings the season’s most boho to Brighton Beach in a fashion-fueled day trip. The Aussie icon hardly blends in as photographed by Ben Toms amongst her seaside setting looking vibrant in pairings by Robbie Spencer. Lightly layered looks don’t single out the seasons, and unfussy, windblown hair by Tomo Jidai just makes sense. Another day at the beach, just with lots of Prada, Miu Miu and Chanel.

Dazed’s New Agenda

August 3rd, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Dazed & Confused debuts its latest covers and marks the first issue following the print redesign after the recent internal change of posts. The gradation had editor Isabella Burley becoming editor in chief and Robbie Spencer becoming creative director, after serving as its fashion director. The latest issue under their helm is aptly entitled “The New Agenda” and features two distinct bubble gum hued covers with of-the-moment models Molly Bair and Lineisy Montero, with two more covers to be revealed making four in total. Styled by Robbie himself and photographed by the in-demand Roe Ethridge, the images are modern and now, with Dazed’s trademark levity and commentary. It’s the pair’s first fresh take on the longstanding narrative of the magazine and while the covers are distinct from previous Dazed covers they feel familial. Models.com asked Isabella and Robbie for some more insight into the the issue’s new direction:

Dazed has always played an authorial role in defining the cultural zeitgeist: So already being Dazed veterans, plus your new roles, what serves as your editorial compass for the “New Agenda”?

Robbie Spencer 

“We wanted to allow the magazine to be become more fashion focused and to visually lead our cultural agenda, enabling us to focus on things that we feel having meaning and resonate with the Dazed audience, such as the feature about the shifting aesthetics in casting headed up by cover stars Molly Bair and Lineisy Montero. It has a new clarity to it. It still is, and always will have, the Dazed point of view on contextualizing fashion and retain its level of integrity focusing on music art and film but incorporating a more visually led and experimental point of view.

We really felt this next era of Dazed is all about championing the community around Dazed – new and established talents – giving them space and freedom and celebrating what print means now. It’s about stripping away archaic ideals about what print used to mean, and how people absorbed print pre digital-consumption, allowing a new sense of freedom and ability to experiment more with the print format. It is more focused on long format and in depth reads and visually led projects, to create a more collectable read, something that does not attempt to compete with the immediacy of digital content, it is something much more curated and considered, making every page precious, less disposable and instant, which is very exciting for us, we all feel a newly energized enthusiasm towards print and are excited about the future, and proud to be spear heading this new era of Dazed print.”

Isabella Burley

“We really wanted to build on the authoritative editorial voice that has continually shaped the pages of Dazed. I’ve always loved the fact that Dazed has championed such a diverse and unexpected range of subjects – from Iris Apfel to Madonna and FKA twigs. For me, things are always more interesting when they don’t quite make sense. You get that feeling when you see the full cover set for this New Agenda issue. When you have such a strong fashion point of view, you can bring even the most unlikely subjects together. That’s when things get interesting! The cultural trailblazers featured in the pages of this first issue might come from disparate worlds, but they share one important thing in common: the ability to set new agendas. We like to think it makes a strange kind of sense.

In regards to Molly and Lineisy, they are at the forefront of an important and electrifying new agenda in fashion – it’s so important to us that we celebrate that. They are igniting new conversations and in turn shaping our cultural landscape. What’s more they are two of the most relatable models we’ve had in years. I’m obsessed with Molly’s instagram!”

A Delphic Curation

March 3rd, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

Jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez takes over the latest issue of A Magazine with her striking, surrealist style and the results are transformative as expected. Nadja Auermann covers the issue in never before photographed vintage Roberto Capucci pieces sourced directly from Roman collectors. The exquisite and colorful archive pieces are styled by Robbie Spencer with Raphael Salley (Streeters London) and Gemma Smith-Edhouse on the beauty team. Matthew Stone captures the polymorphic essence of Nadja as she fearlessly takes on these sculptural gowns with her fluid motions and timeless grace.
