J Brand Takes to Joshua Tree

August 10th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

J Brand‘s takes to Joshua Tree, California for their latest Fall 2015 campaign. Photographed on location at a modern desert home designed by Kendrick Bangs Kellogg, photographer Josh Olins seamlessly mingles models Daria Strokous and Victor Nylander with the severe lines of the stone structures and high desert sun. Styled simply by Alastair McKimm, the blacks contrasts the architecture’s shadow-heavy lines. The posing is kept casual and the spartan setting seems to suit the uncomplicated monochromatic collection, never feeling too design heavy.

French Flair

June 4th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For Industrie Magazine’s “Power” issue French designer Isabel Marant dishes on her worry free demeanor and laid back aesthetics. Originally starting by designing clothes for her friends, Marant is a Parisienne fashion-fixture, and both herself and her brand embody and influence that effortlessly chic Paris charm. Of her line of thought Marant explains in the interview, “I didn’t pretend to ‘fantasize’ a certain woman; I wanted to create a walk, a charm, a nature – not a show off.” Conjuring that essence the editorial photographed by Lachlan Bailey has Julia Bergshoeff looking utterly cool styled in a swath of Isabel Marant selects from seasons past by Géraldine Saglio. A simple dewy skin and wettish hair provided by Sally Branka and hair stylist Christian Eberhard makes sure to hew to the fluent charm of Marant’s designs.

Seeing Spots

May 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When Haider Ackermann filled his S/S13 runway with transparent creations emblazoned with black and white dots, it seemed like an unusual move. Polka dots are a fashion standard dating back years, but the diminutive patterns are more often associated with the prim styles of the 1950s than with the kinds of cutting-edge wares favored on Paris’ runways. The designer so known for his innovative use of lush, saturated color was showing another side, taking one of the most uncool of motifs and making it feel new.

In keeping with the current craze for all things graphic, stylists have embraced the versatility of these simple circles, working Ackermann’s creations into a variety of editorials. On occasion the interpretations don’t veer too far from the runway approach (fashion abides by the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ mantra whenever it can) but the excitement comes when the spots are complimented by clashing patterns to create a dynamic visual treat. Whether it is layering in another of Ackermann’s prints from S/S or adding a bold kimono for interest, the real fun lies in the mix which offers stylists an opportunity to show their creativity.

Minimal Mood

January 22nd, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Josh Olins.
Alastair McKimm.
Suvi Koponen.
Vogue China.

Less is more in Olins’ take on the seasons’ most appealingly minimalist pieces. Styled to perfection by McKimm, the luxurious runway pieces especially sleek – even Miuccia Prada’s decadently girlish collection manages to seem stripped down in these stark images. Suvi proves the perfect muse for the current mood and with her slick hair by Esther Langham and glistening skin courtesy of Sally Branka, she embodies modern, nonchalant chic.

A Cut Above

August 5th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Vogue Italia‘s theme for the month is versatility and what better platform than a beauty story to showcase a model’s skill for transformation. Kirsi Pyrhonen sports a variety of looks in Josh Olins story, from boy short, to retro bouffant in shades of brown, blonde and firecracker red: the outlandish dos by Shon look phenomenal and so does Kirsi.

Handsome Girl

July 25th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Has Freja Beha Erichsen graduated from star model to full fledged fashion icon? Vogue China seems to think so, enlisting Tao Okamoto to recreate Freja’s signature tomboy-chic look in Lachlan Bailey‘s beauty story. Styled by Clare Richardson and featuring leather and denim duds from Chanel and Calvin Klein, the story does a good job recreating Freja’s quintessential model off duty style. Always fun to see one model pay tribute to another, perhaps next month we can have the tables turned with Freja sporting Tao’s memorable bowl cut.
