Under the Sea

January 23rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion’s fixation with all things aquatic played out on the S/S runways with a barrage of scuba inspired looks and gilded creations worthy of The Little Mermaid. Never ones to simply showcase a trend, Dazed & Confused offers an abstract take on the look with a brilliantly styled story shot by Sharif Hamza. As an otherworldly surfer-cum-fantasy girl, Emily Baker shines while Karen Langley pushes boundaries with her shape shifting selection of looks that seem crafted from coral. Amazing makeup by Lisa Houghton and slick hair courtesy of Rudi Lewis complete the look, but keep your eyes peeled for some incredible shell pieces from Peeble London!

Moving Pictures

December 1st, 2009 |Posted by Janelle

iris2-600x337

As fashion moves to embrace new media, the role of the editorial is changing: video is becoming an integral part of how magazines and brands present fashion. From the fascinating live feeds at Showstudio, to the mini-movies that have accompanied campaigns for Burberry and Alexander McQueen: everyone is moving beyond static pictures and into new frontiers of visual expression.

One of the most impressive combinations of editorial imagery and video is the La Demimondaine film, a collaboration between multimedia company, Vision On and Flair Austria. Starring Iris Strubegger, as a classic, Dietrich-inspired siren, with set design by the brilliant Mary Howard, the clip presents a compelling vision of glamour and does so while seamlessly merging still images and motion. The technology behind the film is impressive – Iris’ editorial and the video, were shot simultaneously using the state of the art Red camera – but what really captivates, is atmosphere created by the film. Like any good editorial, it transports you to an exciting world of high fashion fantasy.

Find out even more about the process in the making of feature.
