Jackets Required

March 25th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

Fashion’s preoccupation with the seventies becomes the ideé fixe for W Magazine’s new Mario Sorrenti shoot that highlights Saint Laurent muse Grace Hartzel alongside a bleached blonde Jaime Ross. Melanie Ward adopts the glamrock eclecticism of Slimane’s LA playground and the story’s creed: “Jackets required. The rest is at your discretion” means there’s no room for staid convention. On that note, Ward styles the duo into disparate, beatnik-chic playmates mixing in plenty of Saint Laurent. Aaron de Mey adds a touch of mod focusing on bold lashes and James Pecis tousles their hair to appear as unattended to as their abandoned hideout. See the full editorial out on newsstands right now.

La Clique

January 13th, 2015 |Posted by Janelle

Steven Klein (Art Partner)
Edward Enninful
W Magazine.

Fashion is ruled by cliques and W pays tribute to the season’s fiercest girl gangs with an ultra-slick set of portraits filled with top models & newcomers. With Edward Enninful pulling out the very best in Spring fashions and Steven Klein serving up saturated colors and off-kilter scenarios the story crackles with energy. Shon and Val Garland work overtime to create a series of larger than life looks, from coquettes dressed in oversized bows, to camo clad soldier girls to create a cross-section of the season’s dominant archetypes.

Anna Ewers.
W Magazine.

A high fashion dream team unites for a daring blend of haute fashion and high art. A sprawling set piece by M/M Paris hits the streets of Paris and provides an off-kilter motif for McDean’s imagery. Anna models the season’s latest looks from Marc Jacobs, Yohji Yamamoto, Louis Vuitton and Junya Watanabe with her trademark ease, making even the most complex pieces seem effortless. This exciting blend of arresting fashion and colorful sculpture isn’t just visually appealing, it also hammers home the idea that the very best fashions are works of art.

American Blonde

October 14th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

W Magazine American Blonde from models.com on Vimeo.

The myth of the American Blonde is brought to life by Hugh Lippe and William Town for W Magazine with an atmospheric new film. Shot against an industrial backdrop the film tells the story of a mysterious blonde beauty who sweeps into town and seduces every person she crosses – even when they’re only watching her on CCTV. Naturally, the story doesn’t play out in a straightforward fashion – subtle nods to surveillance culture and the gritty underground films of the 70s create a vibe that gives the film its hint of danger. As always Anna delivers, providing just the right mix of sensuality and confidence to keep viewers captivated until the final frame.

Director Hugh Lippe on American Blonde : We (William Town and I) sat down with the task of creating something unique for W’s media section. Throughout writing the treatment, a conversation began regarding the process of ‘image making’ and the dynamic of fashion videos. I believe at one point, after much discussion, we said, “%*$#-it, lets make a ‘rough’ film look cinematic…”. Anna, a German native, is stunningly gorgeous. She the type of model that can work couture along side the most interesting, sharp and stunning androgynous models, yet a guy from any geographic point will take their eyes off the road to ‘check her out’. She embodies a sentiment to me reminiscent of the supermodels in the 80’s, they were ‘hot’, a poster on the wall. Once we put this German beauty through our the ‘process’ she in turn became the ‘American Blonde’.

LV Overload!

August 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

If there is one collection that is getting editorial love this September it is Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut for Louis Vuitton. While LVMH is generally no slouch in the editorial department, Ghesquire’s work has gone that extra mile – appearing on the cover of or within the pages of almost every single September issue thus far. For fans of the designer’s work the constant sight of logo printed belts and playful dresses has been an appealing constant thread amidst the past few months of editorials and covers, but how much is too much? Take a look at the line’s recent front page appearances and decide. Stylists show no signs of slowing down with their Vuitton obsession so you can expect to see the iconic luxury label rack up even more covers as the month winds down.

Sheer Force

August 25th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When it comes to elegant, icy blondes Anja Rubik and Daria Strokous have the market cornered, so it’s wonderful to see them together in the pages of W Magazine‘s September issue looking pristine. Roe Ethridge shoots and Giovanna Battaglia styles this sumptuous tribute to sheer separates. With plenty of skin on display and Battaglia providing her signature eclectic glamour, the story has a lot going for it fashion wise. Etheridge’s saturated colors give each image a vibrancy that brings out tiniest of details – be they a bejeweled butterfly brooch on Anja, or Viki Rutsch (Exposure NY)’s vintage-chic set design. For their part Anja and Daria provide the edit with a vampy intensity that makes the lingerie inspired looks seem powerful rather than dainty.
