Oscar’s Joie de Vivre

January 23rd, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Oscar de la Renta‘s final collection for his legendary line is given a fitting tribute with the brand’s spring/summer campaign by Steve Hiett (London: D + V Management , London: D + V Management , Berlin: Shotview Photographers Management). With Daria Strokous and Sasha Luss serving as blonde bombshells on the go and Heitt capturing their every move through Miami’s toniest enclaves, the campaign crackles with energy. Natasha Royt styles the duo in coordinating pastel looks from the spring collection, bringing out their inner society girl with gingham prints and plenty of floral embroidery. The resulting ads are upbeat and energetic without ever losing the elegance that defined de la Renta’s timeless aesthetic.

Russh‘s latest issue celebrates all that is fresh in the world of fashion and what better representative of that than buzzed about new face, Meag West. Will Davidson shoots Meag in richly saturated tones, while Stevie Dance styles her in the latest from Dries Van Noten and Mary Katrantzou. Meag’s bright green eyes and pouty lips make her look like a living doll in the vibrantly patterned ensembles.

Ever wonder what was on Steven Meisel‘s iPod? The latest issue of Vogue gives us a little hint, its ‘Already Famous’ editorial features a lineup fit for Coachella posing alongside supermodel, Sasha Pivovarova. Musicians Mika, Beirut, Vampire Weekend, The Horrors, Chester French and MGMT, join Sasha for a little fashionable fun in this lighthearted story. While we can’t exactly imagine Anna Wintour jamming to ‘Electric Feel’ it is still cool to see a few rock stars shaking up a studio edit.
