Sugar & Spice

July 30th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Has Steven Meisel gone soft on us? The master photographer is showing his sugary side with in the new campaigns for Juicy Couture and Mulberry. The overdose of bright colors, youthful energy and over the top girlishness may have some missing Meisel’s darker moments, but the carefree shots of Hanne, Abbey, Eliza and Daria are perfectly atuned to the lighthearted feel of both brands.

A Touch of Beige

July 29th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Beige, beige, beige it seems like you can’t do an editorial this season without tapping into the taupe trend; Andreas Sjodin shoots Constance Jablonski in the best variants of the look. The understated pieces are perfect on Constance, but what we like most about this story are the way the looks are broken up by stylist Sabino Pantone, the mix of designers – Miu Miu with Michael Kors, Alaia with Jil Sander – makes the basic neutral clothes considerably more interesting.

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.

Bits & Bytes: Raquel by Ruth

July 28th, 2010 |Posted by Betty


Just a little bit obsessed with this video by Ruth Hogben for Showstudio, featuring Gareth Pugh F/W 10. Raquel Zimmermann shows why she is fast becoming legendary…

Fashion news:

Speaking of Showstudio, this is all part of 30 contributors each creating an exclusive film for the groundbreaking website. Expect Lady Gaga, Craig McDean and more.

Incredible that Stella McCartney is changing such an old British tradition! You go girl!

How gorgeous is Roberto Cavalli‘s 40th Anniversary book? Looks sumptuous…

We love Mary Howard‘s work for Meisel and Annie Leibovitz. Find out from Style.com about this one chair Mary used, that I will name “the supermodel”.

Miscellaneous:

Leslie Sweeney, one of the founders of Art & Commerce is leaving A&C after 28 years. “Leslie was a founding partner of Art + Commerce in 1982 and virtually created the idea that agencies would represent stylists (and hair/makeup artists). During her career, she has shepherded the careers of industry defining artists such as Lori Goldstein, Brana Wolf, Camilla Nickerson, Orlando Pita and Gucci Westman.” Good luck Leslie!

Peter Arnell, the incredible advertising guru behind THAT iconic DKNY campaign, loses 256 pounds (there’s before and after pictures). Inspirational!

Modeling News:

New York Models is touring the US and looking for their next star

The cult of Kristen McMenamy continues. We love how 2 of the hottest faces in modeling right now are Kristen McMenamy and Freja Beha Erichsen, 2 very unconventional and non-cookie cutter beauties.

Some very handsome new American faces below. Left Erik from Next LA and Brandon from Chosen Management.

Triple Play

July 27th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

Anthon Wellsjo‘s stark YSL campaign appearance, eerily powerful Numero Homme cover  and recent success for the S/S 11 shows mark his emergence as a face to watch for the upcoming season. Frida Gianinni‘s a fan; she put him in 3 looks for the show and chose him as the only young man for the F/W lookbook. Looks like 3 may be the young Swedish sensation’s lucky number; racking up such blue chip devotees in all three arenas (editorial/campaigns/shows) is a rare feat indeed. How Swede it is!

Vogue Nippon starts the September issue season off right with Daniel Jackson and Marie Chaix‘s sleek collaboration. Jackson’s mod black and whites of a black bobbed Rianne Ten Haken, look cool and minimalist and the graphic clothes chosen by Chaix compliment the theme – how cool are those giant Alexis Bittar earrings on Rianne?

Collaborative Arts

July 26th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Notice how many of F/Ws fashion ads involve collaborations with contemporary artists? Stella McCartney enlists artist Barry Reigate to illustrate the otherwise minimalist ads starring Natalia Vodianova and shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott , the cartoonish style fits with McCartney’s quirky image and is slightly reminiscent of last seasons Disneyfied ads with Sigrid Agren.

Bottega Venetta has Robert Longo all but recreate the look of his classic ‘Men In Cities’ series, only with Alla Kostromichova and Terron Wood doing all the movements.

Not to be outdone, Missoni goes all out with a mini-film by experimental filmmaker, Kenneth Anger; the bold and trippy clip (watch it in its entirety here) features Margherita Missoni and a host of others.
