When statement jewelry gets mystical and dark: SCHIELD fall 2014

Veiled in black and spelling out the lack of boundaries building the core of a dangerous relationship, sisterhood gets a twisted makeover in SCHIELD‘s controversial fall / winter 2014 campaign. Titled “Sisters”, the disturbing story unveils right before your eyes. As conceived and lensed by photographer Diego Diaz Marin, every single element aims to give emphasis to the mystical and dark collection of statement jewellery.

A blonde of perfect proportions: Shané van der Westhuizen (NSFW)

There’s a word for Shané van der Westhuizen bounding topless and carefree across a beach, and that word is ugh. Perhaps not so much a word as a sound, to be relied upon where all real words fail – exhaled more than spoken, half in acknowledgement and half in resignation. Starring in Zulu & Zephyr’s spring 2014 campaign, van der Westhuizen is all perfect proportions,…

Karlie Kloss for Donna Karan is all mirrors and dancing

Filled with stardust and mirrors and dancing, with the lithe frame of Karlie Kloss carrying the strength of a flapper and the plunging necklines of a modern day heroine, is Donna Karan’s fall 2014 campaign. Steven Sebring’s photos give the impression of movement, and offer more by way of mood than detail. No matter: it works for Karan’s shimmying, draping pieces.

IYA Swimwear does slick, sporty, sexy

Lingerie-inspired. Slick and sporty. Somehow these two concepts seem disparate, not the kind of elements that would gel together easily. And yet IYA Australia created a simple wonder in their spring / summer 2014 collection: this black bikini with multiple lingerie-like straps that’s equal parts sporty and sexy. IYA’s girl “lives life to its fullest, she falls in love easily, jumps deep into the ocean……

Thorns and bondage ropes: SCHIELD for Pamela Costantini shoes

Beauty born out of the unexpected, twisted thorns and bondage ropes highlighting a 90′s dark mood, sharp metallic accents adorning covetable shoes: we are not trying to describe a tangled fantasy here, but do expect to be lured straight into Diego Diaz Marin’s dramatic world with its doors lying wide open, this time celebrating the exclusive collaboration between Italian footwear designer Pamela Costantini and jewelry…

How’s this for a bohemian dream: Child Of Wild

There’s a particular romance that comes from bohemian influences met with feminine beauty and desolate landscapes – an Apocalyptic Romance if you will, as is the title of Child Of Wild’s latest look book. The Californian-based purveyors of sustainable jewellery, accessories and generally exotic flotsam bring lashings of silver and bursts of feathers in this imagery photographed by James Norton.

Yes, we love you little Surfer Girl: Wildfox swim

There are brands who diligently put out a campaign once a season, and then there’s Wildfox. Their ability to design youthfully desirable collections is surpassed by their ability to create a constant stream of dreamy, beautiful imagery that tells a story or captures the imagination. The latest features a muse more than a model – pro surfer Hanalei Reponty – in a campaign titled “Do…

Pleasure born out of torment: Jessica Choay

If clothes could whisper, what would they say? Would they talk about pleasure and happiness? Would they be blunt or deceptive, turn words into magic, or empty them of all meaning? We may never find out that much, but we do know of at least one designer who seems to always find the right voice to gift her garments with. Jessica Choay‘s effortless take on…
