First Look : RUSSH

February 5th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

For the 50th edition of Russh, the always cool Aussie glossy, pulls out all the stops. The ‘Now Showing’ issue focuses on the inspirational power of cinema and storytelling as an artform, so it is no surprise that the mag is filled with leading ladies; from fashion’s hottest models, to Hollywood’s rising beauties and insightful auteurs. Naturally each editorial tells its own story – on the cover Marie Piovesan plays a modern day incarnation of Marie-Antoinette, while editorials inside feature Rosie Tapner showing off the season’s striking shapes and Ruby Jean Wilson getting the Wim Wenders treatment in a ‘Wings of Desire’ inspired photoshoot.

Be sure to check out Russh when it hits stands Feburary 6th, or check out the iPad edition in the App store.

Pre-Fall Finery Pt. 2

January 8th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Pre-fall looks keep coming, take a look at some of our favorites from the recent collections and be sure to share yours in the comments.

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
Model: Alex Yuryeva

After last season’s 80s kitsch escapade, Gaultier’s pre-fall offerings seem downright subdued though they don’t lack for elegance. Gaultier creates an eye-catching silhouette by splitting key looks in two, showing a masculine and feminine side all in one look with pinstriped suiting on the left and delicate knits on the left. Ensembles like this aren’t for the faint of heart, but the daring Gaultier client is sure to respond to these sartorial feats.


PRINGLE OF SCOTLAND
Model: Agne Konciute

Pringle never fails to deliver a strong knit and their pre-fall collection is no exception. Exploring the idea of classic twinsets with a twist, the line offers a refined mix of monochromatic outerwear looks and layered textures. Working with merino wool in a variety of textures and coordinating colors, the design team created an especially modern take on knitwear staples. Standouts included the jacquard turtlenecks and the stunning ribbed trench, rendered in dusty rose for a touch of romance amidst all the austerity.


CHLOE
Models: Nadja Bender, Nouk Torsing and Rosie Tapner

Chloe’s strength lies in its ability to tow the line between wearability and feminine flights of fancy. Claire Wright Keller understands this balance and her pre-fall collection offers a genteel take on wardrobe staples like the leather bomber jacket, minidress and structured overcoat. Delivered in an dainty palette of peach, mint and lipstick red, the Chloe look manages to be girly without verging into frou frou territory; with the addition of the sleek black pieces Wright-Keller gives the Chloe girl a chance to delve into more sophisticated territory.


CARVEN
Models: Brittany, Bergmeister, Valery Kaufmann, Santa Urbane and Alexandra Martynova

Is it just us or have all the cool girls been wearing Carven a lot lately? Designer Guillaume Henry has the market cornered on an appealing brand of quirky cool and his dresses always manage to look chic, yet unaffected. For his cinema influenced (Henry was inspired by Isabella Adjani’s look in Roman Polanski’s 1976 film, The Tenant) pre-fall lineup Henry created a series of youthful looks that mix beautifully. Printed overcoats layered over lacy dresses and thick knee-tights, topped off with giant glasses, metallic bomber jackets, fuzzy turtlenecks beneath mod-shifts, it all worked beautifully.

Campaign Confidential

July 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

The ads keep on coming, check out a few more of our faves from the season – take a look back at our previous campaign favorites post too.

Balenciaga

While we can’t imagine either Nicolas Ghesquière or Steven Meisel spending a lazy weekend at the shore, the Balenciaga campaign is set in such an idyll. Fresh faces Anniek KortleveLinn ArvidssonHirschy HirschfelderJulier BuggeJuliet Ingleby and Rosie Tapner lay out on the dunes in those eccentric looks from F/W.

Chanel

Simple, clean and led by a stellar cast, Chanel’s fresh ads feature Kati Nescher, Lindsey Wixson & Cora Emmanuel as styled by Carine Roitfeld. Naturally, Karl Lagerfeld is behind the camera – which depending on your perspective you either love or hate, that said the casting on this is flaw free.

Dolce & Gabbana

A taste of Italian nostalgia shot by Giampaolo Sgura and featuring Monica Bellucci, Bianca Balti and Bianca Brandolini – each image feels like a still from a Pasolini film.

Valentino

Valentino once again gives us a vision of pure class from the iconic Deborah Turbeville. Elegantly color coordinated looks on Jac JagaciakCaroline Brasch Nielsen and Frida Gustavsson - what’s not to love?

Fendi

When you have Joan Smalls and Karl Lagerfeld you don’t really need much else. With the natural setting and powerful poses, this new ads remind us a bit of Anja Rubik‘s S/S 10 ads for the luxe line.

Just Kids

January 17th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

If a campaign is the visual representation of a house’s current mood, what are Balenciaga‘s S/S ads saying about the storied label? Captivating new faces Laura Kampman, Juliane Grüner, Rosie Tapner & Kirstin Liljegren star in Steven Meisel‘s images as a rag-tag bunch of girls gone grunge. The inspiration? None other than the legendary Patti Smith – take a look at her personal photos from the book Just Kids, to see where the campaign gets its spirit. The look is recreated with bedhead courtesy of Guido Palau, smoky makeup by Pat McGrath and Marie-Amélie Sauvé‘s artful styling. A dilapidated hotel room and those larger than life accessories from the spring collection also play a pivotal role.

Patti Smith and Sam Shepard
