Psychedelic Versailles

June 12th, 2014 |Posted by Matthew

For their latest fragrance commercial, Dior continues its collaboration with some of the hottest names in the film industry. Following Sofia Coppola and Natalie Portman’s girlish videos for the Miss Dior fragrance, the storied French fashion house tapped indie visionary Harmony Korine, of Kids (1995) and Spring Breakers (2013) fame, to shoot campaign star Sasha Luss in a hypnotic promo for the brand styled by Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele. The clip, at just over a minute, combines found-footage aesthetics, digital animations, and a sampling from South African rap duo Die Antwoord to conjure a psychedelic scene. Sasha, barefoot in Raf Simons’ Spring ‘14 couture collection, revels like Alice in Wonderland lost at Versailles, striking a winning balance for the brand’s fresh yet classic look.

Dazed Declares Independence

February 24th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion thrives on reinvention on and off the runway, so when it was announced that Dazed & Confused was going seasonal it heralded a new beginning for one of the business’ most beloved magazines. The re-imagined Dazed hits newsstands on the 27th and with it comes a wealth of exciting new visual content headlined by the best and brightest talents. With film star Scarlett Johansson on the front page shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby and sporting two very different looks the issue begins by turning expectations on their head. Presenting one of pop culture’s ultimate pinups as a tough street chick is right in line with the Dazed ethos and it sets the stage for a stellar issue. Inside you’ll find new editorial content from Ruth HogbenLachlan Bailey (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists), Harley WeirBen TomsRobbie Spencer and Tony Irvine (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) and more. Each story offers an original take on the season’s wares, but the 50 pages of collections imagery is a special sartorial treat.

For more on the new Dazed head on over to Dazed Digital for a full look at Vol IV.

CHANEL

Lindsey Wixson and Sasha Luss strike a pose for Karl Lagerfeld‘s lens and add a touch of cool to the eclectic Chanel spring collection. Sporting rainbow colors, oversized pearl baubles and a plethora of handbags Lindsey & Sasha are technicolor muses worthy of Chanel’s vibrant, painterly collection.

GUCCI

Gucci’s boudoir ready spring collection gets a suitably sensual campaign by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner). Sultry rising stars Amanda Wellsh and Elisabeth Erm pose against a crimson backdrop in sequined pieces by Frida Gianinni, while Tommaso de Benedictis takes center stage in the equally sleek menswear ads.

CHLOE

It’s been a few seasons since Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helmed the Chloe campaign, but the duo doesn’t miss a beat. With Lou Doillon and Julia Stegner front and center in summery images filled with floaty minidresses and espadrilles, Inez and Vinoodh perfectly capture the laid back look & feel that defines Chloe.

FIRST LOOK: Scandinavia SSAW

December 16th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Last week we previewed Scandinavia SSAW Magazine‘s stunning Frida Gustavsson editorial, shot in the mountains of Norway and filled with natural beauty – that story was gorgeous but it is far from the only treat inside the issue. With a series of elegant covers featuring Scandinavian top models alongside delicate drawings of flora, the magazine sets the tone for an issue focused on eye-catching images. Whether the content skews naturalistic – as it does in Hasse Nielsen‘s cheeky ‘Nadja On A Bender’ story, or epic ala Benjamin Vnuk‘s dramatic shots of Stef Van Der Laan, each story is high quality from start to finish.
