In a new exclusive for Vogue Japan, Alisa Ahmann is captured lazily lounging around the beach in a sun-induced haze by photographer Camilla Akrans ( Management + Artists). Stylist Sissy Vian (Management + Artists) uses the blue tones of the ocean as a perfect backdrop for head-to-toe denim outfits. Do we even need to say anything about Alisa’s short, golden curls? Nope.

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Testino Obsession

September 29th, 2014 |Posted by models.com

When Vogue Japan and Mario Testino (Art Partner) join forces anything is possible! The legendary photographer takes over the magazine, serving as the first guest editor in 15 years and bringing his unique viewpoint to each and every page. This is the 8th international Vogue issue that Testino has guest edited and if he ever tires of being one of the world’s foremost photographers he could easily slip into the role of editor. The art direction, design and editorials featured within are all top notch. Take a first look at the stories within and see what Testino and Vogue Japan’s Editor in Chief Mitsuko Watanabe have to say about this very special edition.

MARIO TESTINO: “I have been going to Japan on and off since the 1980s and since my very first experiences there I felt a spirit I really connected with. I found, on so many levels, that whatever the Japanese did, they did with absolute and unwavering conviction. It was this, which I came to view as obsession; it is a way of being that I have followed in my own life and career.

MITSUKO WATANABE: “This is the first time Testino has worked with VOGUE JAPAN. I am delighted that we have been able to realize this memorable project in which Mario has undertaken everything from photo shooting to editing to mark this special 15th anniversary, and also that the pages are magnificently finished to an outstandingly high degree of quality. This superb quality has greatly impressed me personally more than anything else.”

La Canzone del Mare

September 2nd, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The Dolce & Gabbana look is one of the most easily recognizable in fashion – the brand’s quintessentially Italian take on style is unmistakable. The dramatic nature of Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbanas clothing makes the duo’s wares perfect for editorial and Vogue Japan taps into the larger than life style of Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda with a seaside story as lively and colorful as anything you’ll see this month. Dalianah ArekionKinga Rajzak and Nadja Bender take to the shores of Capri wearing the couture collection as they perch on the edge of cliffs and pose on boats while looking like princesses – complete with gilded D&G crowns. Giovanna Battaglia and Anna Dello Russo take turns styling, creating a vivid portrait of Mediterranean glamour.
