Abstract Expressionism

August 19th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

The intersection of art and fashion never fails to create arresting imagery, but the September collections edition of Dazed & Confused takes things one step further with an inventive fall editorial by Daniel Jackson. Transforming Esther De Jong, Casey Legler, Danielle Zinaich and Bridget Hall into gilded abstractions the story is a one of a kind take on the season’s key fashions. Hair and makeup by Francelle Daly and Esther Langham adds a painterly touch, while a razor sharp manicure by Tracylee provides a touch of danger. Stark styling courtesy of Alastair McKimm hones in on the minimalist yet decadent look of the moment, adding a gothic twist via a range of textured black pieces and expertly layered furs. The full look combines to re-imagine model as a living sculpture – distorted yet expressive and compelling.

Fueled Up

December 3rd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

We’re used to seeing Daria Strokous looking beyond elegant in ads for Jil Sander and Dior, but it is always interesting to see a photographer take the refined beauty in another direction. Hugh Lippe uncovers the edge beneath Ms. Strokous’ refined exterior in a new story for FAT Magazine that showcases another side of the Russian beauty. Focusing on a look that is raw and edgy with a hint of danger, Lippe along with stylist Joanne Blades create a compelling alternative to the typical fashion edit – check out the story, exclusive outtakes and the accompanying fashion film below.
