Jacquemus Bends Over Backwards

Though it feels like it’s far off, Spring is next up in the seasonal fanfare of fashion and French neue house Jacquemus visually transports audiences to exotic beaches of lore. Shot by long time collaborator David Luraschi, designer Simon Porte Jacquemus unfurls his new collection full of earthy color tones, riskily high hemlines and teeny tiny bags on model rookie Assa Baradji. Obsidian-hued beaches provide the perfect backdrop to a collection that is well suited for balmy temps. Time to countdown to warmer days ahead.

Versace Unleashes An Epic Supermodel Rollout for Its 40th

Versace needs no introduction but it’d be a short post. For the 40th anniversary of the fashion house, Donatella Versace looks to the archives for both design and casting inspiration for the Spring 2018 campaign and familiar faces from the past pair up with the brightest of the future. Shot by the legendary Steven Meisel, the original top models Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Gisele Bündchen, Natalia Vodianova, Raquel Zimmermann, and Irina Shayk are featured next to the leaders of the new school Kaia Gerber, Gigi Hadid, Vittoria Ceretti, Cara Taylor, Birgit Kos, Grace Elizabeth, and sole male model, Noah Luis Brown. “This campaign represents the link between past and present,’ the iconic Donatella goes on to explain. “You need to know who you are, and where you are coming from, to build your future. This is the reason why I wanted to see this iconic super model cast next to the soon-to-be-iconic girls of the future.”

Take a look at the supermodel heavy campaign below.

Fucking Young Gets the Royal Touch

Fall gets a dark and evocative edge in the latest issue of menswear magazine Fucking Young, devoted to royalty in all its forms. Taking a special focus on issues of gender and race, the latest edition includes thought-provoking features like an interview with Sergey Neamoscou, who has spent the past five years documenting Africa’s marginalized LBGTQ community in his photography, alongside provocative looks at the season’s edgiest designs. Elsewhere, Romain Kremer plays laser tag with cover star Jordy Gerritsma in electrifying makeup courtesy of Isamaya Ffrench while Michiel Meewis and Michael Miller capture Dutch stars Sven de Vries, Ton Heukels, and Bram Valbracht in a post-apocalyptic landscape in a Dior Homme feature. Two stories by Ruth Ginika Ossai and Rasharn Agyemang offer a baroque take on African traditions and culture, adding a valuable and fresh perspective to an issue devoted to spotlighting voices often overlooked in mainstream fashion.

A Pregnant Rose Bertram Lands Vogue Netherlands

Vogue Netherlands defies cover expectations as they start off the new year with a pregnant Rose Bertram as their cover star. While pregnancy is no new phenomenon (yet miraculous, none the less!) the issue shot by Marc de Groot stands as the second time the Dutch publication has ever put a pregnant model on the front page (Ymre Stiekema stands as the first). Styled by Jos van Heel in a brocade Louis Vuitton coat fit for royalty, it’s refreshing to see a willingness to take on the unexpected.

See the model’s Instagram for the exciting roll out and be sure to pick up an issue when it hits newsstands December 14th.
