Night Light

January 23rd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Vogue Paris has always loved a dynamic girl on the go story and this month they serve on up featuring Saskia de Brauw. Sporting a bleach blonde crop and a bold red lip courtesy of Yadim (Art Partner) Saskia looks more glamorous than ever. The luxe story is styled to perfection by Clare Richardson who pulls pieces from Givenchy, Dior, Blumarine and Moschino, mixing transparent sequined gowns and ornate cocktail dresses to create a look that works with Terry Richardson (Art Partner)’s sleek snapshot style. With city lights flickering the background and a decadent vibe running through each image, this editorial stands out in an issue filled with chic model content.

The master of avant garde fashions sits down with director, Wim Wenders for an in depth discussion of his work and continuing influence. Wenders previously captured Yamamoto in the documentary, Notebook on Cities and Clothes and their latest conversation proves insightful and refreshing. The accompanying photographs by Roversi capture the beauty of Yamamoto’s work and its quiet majesty.

Bowie and the Beauties

February 28th, 2013 |Posted by contributor

Leave it to David Bowie to return to pop culture with a project that blazes across music, fashion, and film. Directed by filmmaker Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways, 2010), Bowie’s fashion-film-meets-music-video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” is a surreal visual feast. Accompanying the latest track off the glam rock icon’s imminent 24th studio album, the film is equal parts Fellini imitation and David Lynch devotion, twisting a wild narrative around tabloids, domesticity, and androgyny. Tilda Swinton lends her acting chops playing Bowie’s wife as Saskia de Brauw and Andrej Pejic‘s deviant celebrity couple invades their lives. Iselin Steiro, rounding out the film’s trio of top models, gets the glammest gig of all playing a young Bowie–the two even lip the words together! What do you make of the video for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)?” (text by Matt Meyer)

Movie Moment

February 4th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

We’ve all seen enough fashion films featuring slow motion models whose hair blows elegantly in the wind and though there is nothing wrong with that per se, the most engaging campaign movies we’re seeing this year break from the tried and true formulas. Going for over the top humour, cinematic imagery or full on designer commentary, these brand new campaigns excite and delight.

T BY ALEXANDER WANG S/S 13

We last saw Anjelah Johnson’s Bon Qui Qui character on old episodes of Mad TV, but she’s back and has upgraded from her old job at King Burger. Starring as a sales associate at Wang’s trendy Soho boutique, Bon Qui Qui manages to insult everyone from Alessandra Ambrosio to A$AP Rocky with her in your face brand of customer service. For anyone who has ever worked retail, or had an especially crazy shopping experience this clip will make you crack a smile.


CALVIN KLEIN PRESENTS PROVOCATIONS

Calvin Klein has a long history of memorable advertisements that push boundaries with a strong dose of sex appeal and their latest fashion film, Provocations adds to their oeuvre with a slick Fabien Baron helmed vision of minimalist eroticism. Starring actor, Alexander Skarsgard and Suvi Koponen, the avant garde ad provides some truly remarkable imagery.


LANVIN S/S13

Alber Elbaz is one of fashion’s true characters, so it is great to see the Lanvin campaign inject some of the designer’s personality into the mix with Elbaz providing running commentary on the Steven Meisel images of Christian GarciaDaria StrokousKarlie KlossKristoffer HasslevallMichael Lange and Saskia de Brauw. Alber’s enthusiasm is downright contagious – we wouldn’t mind hearing his commentary on every Lanvin video from here on!

Cover to Cover

January 14th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s cover vs. cover in this roundup of the month’s fashion hits. Let us know which covers were your favorites and which one’s didn’t quite make the cut.

ANDROGYNOUS APPEAL

Both Saskia de Brauw and Milla Jovovich have an innately stylish vibe that sets them apart from other cover stars, so seeing their faces peering out from the newsstand is always a treat. On February’s Vogue Russia Saskia provides a bit of androgynous edge to Paolo Roversi‘s moody blue imagery in a serious yet sensual cover. Milla J on the other hand is looking resplendent in Saint Laurent Paris on Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin‘s New York themed cover of the new Vogue Paris.

SASKIA ON VOGUE RUSSIA OR MILLA ON VOGUE PARIS – WHICH COVER GETS YOUR VOTE?


2 SIDES OF CONSTANCE

February brings double the Constance Jablonski for you to enjoy, with two very different Vogue covers. Vogue Germany‘s Alexi Lubomirski (New York: Management + Artists, Paris: Management + Artists) image offers a sultry vision of the Estee Lauder face, complete with dark lips and a retro chic bob worthy of a classic film siren. Patrick Demarchelier shows another side of Constance on Vogue China‘s springy cover shot, a simple portrait that is about as pretty as it gets.

SULTRY CONSTANCE OR FLOWERY CONSTANCE – EVERYBODY WINS!


BATTLE OF THE BLONDES

It is hard to find a flaw on Scarlett Johansson, but how does Elle UK‘s Rankin cover with the Avengers beauty compare to their one and only Anja Rubik? Both stars are clad in minimalist chic, both are looking phenomenal, but ultimately Anja’s cover is the more dynamic of the two. Naturally that means it is also the more difficult one to get your hands on, if you’re in London head on over to Selfridges to get this limited edition Elle cover.

SCARLETT’S ELLE COVER OR ANJA’S ELLE COVER – WHICH GETS YOUR VOTE?


THE TEASERS

LOVE Magazine
s new ‘Clean Issue’ may not have debut just yet, but they really know how to amp up the anticipation. The teaser shots of models of the moment, Cara Delevingne and Edie Campbell by Sølve Sundsbø are elegant without losing any of LOVE’s trademark cool.

CARA OR EDIE – WHICH LOVE TEASER GETS YOUR VOTE?

Campaign Brief

January 10th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Stunning S/S campaigns keep coming in, take a look at some of the best ads to hit magazines of late.


BALENCIAGA

Nicolas Ghesquiere (Designer) | Steven Meisel (Photographer) |  Kirstin LiljegrenKremi Otashliyska & Sam Rollinson (Models)

The final Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga collection is given the royal treatment in Steven Meisel‘s elegant new campaign for the luxe brand. Kirstin LiljegrenKremi Otashliyska and Sam Rollinson star in the simple black and white images, which focus on the power of the clothing rather than elaborate set ups or outlandish imagery.


FENDI

Karl Lagerfeld ( Designer & Photographer) | Saskia de Brauw & Kati Nescher (Models)

Karl Lagerfeld shoots the dream team of Kati Nescher and Saskia de Brauw in Fendi’s colorful ads. With accessories serving as a focal point alongside the the vibrant geometric patterns of the S/S collection, Lagerfeld’s shots are a less is more take on Fendi’s opulent glamour.


CHLOE

Clare Waight-Keller (Designer) | Glen Luchford (Photographer) | Camille Bidault Waddington (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Garren (Hair Stylist) | Aaron de Mey (Makeup Artist) | Anatole Rainey (Manicurist) | Fabien Baron (Art Director) | Michelle Lee for KCD (Casting Director) | Caroline Brasch NielsenNadja BenderRosie Tapner & Tilda Lindstam (Models)

 The ultimate cool girls gathering, Caroline Brasch NielsenNadja BenderRosie Tapner and Tilda Lindstam hanging out in head to toe Chloe looking like extras from an especially chic episode of Girls.


GUCCI

Frida Gianinni (Designer) | Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Photographers) | Karmen Pedaru & Anja Rubik (Models)

Karmen, Anja, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott – when you have all that, nothing more is needed.


JIL SANDER
Jil Sander (Designer) | David Sims (Photographer) | Juliane Grüner and Otto Lotz (Models)

Jil is back! With Sander back at the helm of her eponymous line, it is only natural that the S/S 13 campaign would have a completely different look and feel from what we’ve seen from the brand of late. David Sims shoots futuristic ad images that are completely in line with the streamlined Sander vibe, while Juliane Grüner and Otto Lotz perfectly embody the effortless chic of Sander’s aesthetic.


DIOR

Raf Simons (Designer) | Willy Vanderperre (Photographer) | Olivier Rizzo (Fashion Editor/Stylist) | Anthony Turner (Hair Stylist) | Aaron de Mey (Makeup Artist) | Piers Hanmer (Set Designer) | Anna Martynova, Daiane Conterato, Marie Piovesan, Nicole Pollard, Daria Strokous (Models)

We expect nothing less than the pinacle of elegance from fashion’s most storied house and Willy Vanderperre (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) delivers with a series of campaign images that effortlessly capture Raf Simons’ minimalist vision for Dior. The new look (pun intended) of the campaign feels refreshing and completely in line with the collection.
