The holiday season comes early with Walker’s delightful new covers for Vogue China. Walker’s minimal images offer a stripped down take on fantastical fashion, with the focus solely on the clothes, the girls and decorative calligraphy on the right. The resulting covers are elegant, evocative and easily rank amongst the best of the year. (casting by Larissa Gunn)

The Halloween Edit

October 31st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion has always held Halloween in a special esteem. Of all the holidays it allows for the most outlandish changes and transformations which means it is right up fashion’s alley. As such there are countless editorials that serve to inspire a bit of seasonal cheer, or at least serve as appropriate fodder for Halloween costumes. Take a look back at 10 editorials that make us think of all-Hallows eve and share your favorite spooky or kooky fashion story in the comments.

01. Ph. Tim Walker
Publication: Harper’s Bazaar
Who better to look to on Halloween than legendary filmmaker (and master of the spooky story) Tim Burton? Bazaar’s fashion trip through Burton’s filmography is a creepy classic.

Halloween3

02. Ph. Jean-Francois Campos
Publication: Flair
Campos’ Nosferatu-esque zombies might not be as scary as the characters on The Walking Dead but it made for a great spooky editorial.

Halloween1H5

03. Ph. Steven Klein (Art Partner)
Publication: Candy Magazine
There are quite a few Steven Klein stories that could be considered Halloween ready, but his fantastical male pregnancy saga for Candy is probably the most outlandish.

Halloween5

04. Ph. Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello
Publication: Numéro
Sofia & Mauro took inspiration from Divine for this out there story that captures all the kitschy goodness of John Waters’ over the top film.

Halloween1

05. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: American Vogue
The way in which each and every model on this story took on a classic rock persona was downright inspirational – Omhyra as Prince, Karolina Kurkova as Marilyn Manson, Sophie Dahl as Debbie Harry – the work by Pat McGrathGrace Coddington and Orlando Pita on this story was nothing short of iconic.

Halloween2

06. Ph. Peter Lindbergh
Publication: Vogue Paris
Some of fashion’s own characters make for incredible costumes, case in point Sasha P morphing into John Galliano for Vogue Paris.

Halloween6

07. Ph. Thomas Lagrange (Total Management)
Publication: Vogue Japan
You can’t have a Halloween roundup without a little vampirism and LaGrange’s slick beauty story puts a chic twist on bloodsucking.

Halloween1H6

08. Ph. Steven Meisel
Publication: Vogue Italia
The inspiration for Meisel’s ‘The Discipline of Fashion’ was Ethel Granger, a woman who tightlaced for years in order to achieve a 13 inch waist! You don’t need to go that far to get into the story or the incredible, unnerving visuals.

Halloween1H1

09. Ph. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
Publication: V Magazine
A before and after of epic proportions where Eniko, Anja and Raquel are transformed via the use of Paddy Hartley’s transparent face masks. The clear plastic and cutouts distort the wearers face by changing its proportions in ways that range from beautiful to grotesque.

Halloween1H2

10. Ph. Craig McDean
Publication: American Vogue
Before everyone was running out to grab their Avengers costume, Coco Rocha was playing fashion superhero in the pages of Vogue with this memorable McDean story.

Halloween1H3

Lanvin’s Family Reunion

July 21st, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Edie Campbell is no stranger to high fashion campaigns, but Lanvin takes things one step further with their fall ads enlisting not just Edie, but her entire family! Tim Walker shoots the Campbell family in all their glory and his portraits prove that the group is every bit as eclectic and unique as one would expect. Given that the idea of family is a core part of Lanvin’s heritage (their famous logo is a drawing of Jeanne Lanvin embracing her daughter after all) the campaign is the perfect series of visuals for the label’s 125th anniversary.

Mulberry Hills

July 2nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Mulberry heads back to its rugged roots with a picturesque campaign set against a Scottish highland backdrop. Tim Walker eschews the fantastical in favor of the simple pleasures of green hills and blue skies and it makes for beautiful images. Cara Delevingne plays modern English rose in Walker’s shots, sporting knit sweaters and minis as she totes around the line’s signature bags. Walking alongside hunting hounds might not require the use of a Bayswater tote, but the added touch of luxury certainly doesn’t hurt and Edward Enninful‘s skillful styling makes each fall ensemble seem perfect.

Away We Go

May 13th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Tim Walker, Edie Campbell and Jacob K head to Burma for a special shoot for W Magazine. Travel editorials are always intriguing, but Walker’s haunting images take things to another level, capturing a series of distinctive Burmese landmarks and Jacob K’s eclectic melange of prints and gilded details. The story behind the 10 day shoot is equally intriguing; from the off-kilter inspiration (Mia Farrow’s imaginary sister Prudence) to the way Walker and crew worked with locals to create these evocative shots.
