Do we see a trend emerging here for January 2013’s magazine covers? Perhaps in Spain, at least: first Carmen Kass for Harper’s Bazaar Spain wearing a fur coat with nothing underneath, now Vogue Spain brings us Edita Vilkeviciute with her military jacket worn open to reveal nothing but a bare décolletage and a toned stomach.
Despite its neo-Gothic styling – such as this dramatic Gucci cape – Camilla Akrans chose to set her latest Vogue Japan shoot in a soft and sunny garden setting. Styled by Sissy Vian, the shoot stars Edita Vilkeviciute and takes the romantic title Remembered By Eros.
Once again H&M prove that price point in store does not necessarily correlate to quality of production of editorials (you need only look at Edita Vilkeviciute by Camilla Akrans). This time it was photographer Marcus Ohlsson enlisted to shoot a simple yet slick swim editorial for H&M’s summer 2012 magazine, consisting of bold colours, stripes and classic black pieces alike as modelled by Hanna Fridh.

How do H&M create campaigns and shoots that make their clothes look ultra-luxurious? Perhaps a behind-the-scenes video will give some insight. Shot by Camilla Akrans and starring Edita Vilkeviciute, this particular shoot from H&M’s summer 2012 magazine takes inspiration from Alabama Whitman, Patricia Arquette’s prostitute character in True Romance. Updated for the now, of course. Expect plenty of cut-away swimwear, crop tops, and blonde wigs.
Step outside the realms of high fashion and you’ll find that most swimwear calendars are loaded with cliches. They’re the same cliches you saw in Sports Illustrated back in the ’80s and ’90, and you’re about to see them again now. But Patrick Demarchelier’s subtle nod to the traditional swimwear calendar is executed knowingly. And with visual beauty, too. Edita Vilkeviciute works the crouching-on-rocks-in-heels pose,…

“One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.” — Harry’s Game, 1975. We hear a lot about terrorists in this current age. It’s only for one side of the fight that they’re romanticised though. And it’s only for one side of the fight that they could be thought of as fashionable. But such separations are clear only for the terrorists of the modern age. We…

A trend like sportswear as fashion brings the inevitability of editorial contrasts. Sportswear juxtaposed against glamorous settings, or couture gowns worn on a sports field. That’s all visually interesting, but in reality the most gritty and captivating view of sportswear is when shown with realism; sweat-soaked, bandaged, and with a focus on being functional so the body beneath it can perform the amazing feats it’s…

It’s almost become a bigger calendar-related event than the new year which dictates the needs for a new calendar to begin with. So it is that we spend most of the year talking about the ins and outs of a sole calendar, pondering who’ll photograph it and how they’ll go about it, before passing around rumours as to the models who’ll actually feature in it.…

While much of the focus of the 70s fashion revival has been on either the very smart and sophisticated or the free-flowing and hippie, this shoot from 032c takes a slightly different route. This is the sensual side of the 70s. And there’s plenty to be inspired by: Farrah Fawcett hair gets a modern update, so do soft knits with bare bottoms, leather coats and…

When Edita Vilkeviciute and Magdalena Frackowiak exited Blumarine’s Milan fashion week showing in classic jackets, they surely made a dynamic couplet. Paired against all black (except in Edita’s case) you can see first hand the benefit to investing in a block coloured statement coat, something that Lily Donaldson has also shown us recently.
