Banal Plus

July 18th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

The normcore trend has been the subject of much debate – is it chic, is it lazy, is it even a legitimate trend at all? Craig McDean and Edward Enninful take on the look in the pages of W Magazine with an editorial that mixes the best in designer gear with everyday staples like Adidas tube socks and white clogs – the kind of items you’re more likely to find in the closets of athletes than amongst the accessories utilized in a fashion story. With boy short bowl cuts by James Pecis (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management) and minimal makeup by Fulvia Farolfi (ArtList Paris) models Daiane ConteratoGrace MaharyAymeline ValadeManuela FreyKatlin AasAmanda Murphy and Fei Fei Sun look equal parts haute and banal.

Art Supply

June 11th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Fashion’s art obsession is in full swing this month and a multitude of magazines are tackling the subject matter with flair. W Magazine‘s artsy offering features the return of Raquel Zimmermann in a contemporary painting and sculpture filled story from Willy Vanderperre (Art Partner). Raquel is always a welcome presence in editorials and posing alongside works from luminaries inside Los Angeles art scene mainstays like the MOCA Pacific Design Center and LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) gives her every opportunity to pose and preen in elaborate ways. Sporting an array of unique designer looks chosen by Edward Enninful, Raquel is just as captivating as the landmark works she’s pictured alongside. Vanderperre and Enninful’s collaboration is exactly the kind of creative story we’ve come to expect from W.

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.

More is More

May 9th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Director Sofia Coppola takes the reigns at W Magazine for a special summer supplement dedicated to her passions and inspirations. The gamine director has done stints as a model in the past and has long stood out as an icon of effortless style, so it’s interesting to see just what a magazine helmed by Coppola would look like. One of the most interesting features is a sumptuous fashion story by Roe Ethridge shot in the home of socialite Cornelia Guest. The pattern heavy and undeniably retro-luxe decor serves as the perfect backdrop for stylist Patrick Mackie (Management + Artists)’s selection of decadent swimwear and cover ups. Hilary Rhoda plays the role of society siren admirably and the editorial’s more is more ethos provides the issue with a welcome touch of maximalism.
