Etro Spring / Summer 2013

Etro’s spring / summer 2013 collection was lashing back against digital prints. It’s a point of differentiation: with print being so prominent this year and next, a traditional fashion house has to find a way to stand out against the myriad high street versions and give people good reason to invest. For Etro that meant taking things back to slow, time consuming processes; true expertise…

The stuff of dreams and pulp fiction

Karmen Pedaru, the sexiest I think I’ve ever seen her look, in a vibrant red wig and nothing but a pair of Prada’s hot rod heels. Mariacarla Boscono Bettie Page-like with black fringed hair and a leopard-print belted bodysuit. Just when we felt like we might nod off, Mert & Marcus brought us this bedtime reading that’s worthy of the cover of some vintage pulp…

Go-go to the new Vogue-Vogue?

Were it not for the punchline at the end that finally furnishes this video with some semblance of a point (the punchline being “Go-go to the new Vogue.fr”) you’d wonder what relevance Wham! could possibly have to a relaunch of the Vogue Paris website. But there it is, a video of Emmanuelle Alt miming to Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go. Telling you to Go-Go…

Abbey & Karmen: the latest campaign for Gucci

Update: you can now view a full gallery of campaign images after the break. And yes – the Art Deco elements are definitely in full force. Mert & Marcus are still the photographers of choice for Gucci, this time shooting the fashion house’s campaign for spring 2012. While the solid gold backdrop could be something from the opulent side of the ’40s, there’s little about…

Want to know who’ll be on the Victoria’s Secret runway this year?

The Victoria’s Secret show 2011 will be on the runway in a matter of hours. Anticipated for it’s energy, entertainment value and star power as much as for it’s lingerie, the question isn’t just what will be on the catwalk but who. So who can we expect to see bounding down the runway this year, wings fluttering, eyelashes batting, kisses blowing with targeted determination towards…

Pedaru’s perspective

Thigh high splits. Over the knee boots. Selectively placed furs and blazers. Each are about perspective. Particular angles can detract from the effect, others can heighten it in any number of ways. Despite this, the majority of photo shoots tend to concentrate on each statement element from the same perspective – thigh high splits, for instance, are nearly always photographed with their wearer in motion,…

Paradise blue: the same direction for Vogue Paris

There’s another photo shoot from the June / July 2011 issue of Vogue Paris that has caught our eye, and this time not for allegations of copying. Instead it’s all to do with contrast. Contrast between direction. Contrast between things said. Contrast between editors. This all comes about because for a long time Vogue Paris was a print media title of influence. Every issue not…

The tux returns

Seemingly the resurgence of wide leg pants has brought with it a renewed interest in masculine tuxedo dressing. That’s not surprising; the two make for a beautiful wedding, every time. And unlike the slick, skinny takes on the trend we saw back in 2008 (which was largely about the tuxedo jacket) this time it’s the shape, the silhouette, the 70s influence; like you just stepped…
