Vivid color, imagination and an ultra cool cast bring to life some of the year’s most unique pieces. Only Marie-Amelie could make good ol’ fashioned bolo ties look so modern & chic.


Perfection In Couture

A serpent twists across the pages as Kate Moss slinks around in couture: M&M’s dreamy red-tinted images create an expressive fashion fantasy.

Mechanical Dolls
Ph. Tim Walker | Magazine – Vogue Italia |Stylist – Jacob K | Model(s)Kirsi Pyrhonen & Audrey Marnay

Tim Walker constantly transports us to surreal worlds that entrance and entice – this time around he turned Kirsi & Audrey into wind up dolls that looked straight out of FAO Schwarz.


A Fashionable Fetish
Ph. Paola Kudacki | Magazine – Vogue Japan | Stylist | Model(s)Kelly Mittendorf

Kelly Mittendorf, world’s cutest domniatrix – a concept so audacious it brought a smile to our faces, easily one of the year’s most memorable and adorable.


The Power of Glamour

Meisel doing what he does best, creating a vision of modern glamour where the fashion looks impeccable and the girls are phenomenal. This is the quintessential couture extravaganza.

Call in the Cavalry
Ph. David Sims | Magazine – Vogue | Stylist – Grace Coddington | Model(s)Arizona Muse

We get excited every time David Sims takes his graceful aesthetic outdoors and his War Horse inspired story for Vogue is nothing short of impressive: cinematic in scope and beautifully styled.


The Freak

Spikes and studs and masks, oh my! Sundsbo and Bolliger take on the dark side of men’s fashion in this creepy treat of an edit.
