3.1 Phillip Lim SS16

February 5th, 2016 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

3.1 Phillip Lim creates a new romantic reality in the brand’s latest Spring campaign. The ethereal model and humanitarian Liya Kebede returns home to Ethiopia and is captured in the graphic line, surrounded by family members. Celebrating 10 years in business, Phillip Lim and photographer Viviane Sassen set out to capture the authentic essence of the 3.1 Phillip Lim woman – beautifully strong with a global sensibility. That meant a bit of guerilla-style imagery without hair, make-up, or styling teams, just the core necessities. The results were amazingly approachable imagery with punches of saturated color and a spotlight for streamlined contemporary tailoring.

Field of Dreams

June 13th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

After a dearth of black and white, minimal editorials isn’t it nice to see a little color? Viviane Sassen‘s vibrant story for Dazed & Confused is anything but subdued; everything from the Lisse’s gorgeous tulip fields to Katie Shillingford‘s styling bursts off the page. We’re given a feast of pattern, texture and graceful movements courtesy of Lisanne de Jong; whose ballerina poses breathe life into wild garments from Pam Hogg, Vivienne Westwood and Sonia Rykiel.

In the Shadows

July 28th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Numero never fails to offer up something different and the August issue showcases the talents of photographer Viviane Sassen in an atypical editorial starring Samantha Gradoville. Using shadow and light to great effect, Sassen creates a surreal atmosphere and Belén Casadevalls colorful styling combines the best of the season’s knits with a pair of unbelievable over the knee boots by Chanel. With its raw outdoor shots and dreamy feel the story is a breath of fresh air and Samantha looks flawless even in the contorted poses.
