Alexander Wang for H&M video is first person shooter gone sexy

Toughness is an Alexander Wang hallmark; and he’s bringing it to H&M. If the Alexander Wang x H&M runway wasn’t enough proof, then check out the video component of the collaboration. Filled with action sequences and breaking into a first person shooter perspective, it stars models Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Raquel Zimmermann and Natasha Poly in slick outfits and don’t-mess-with-us attitude.

Pirelli calendar 2015: see the photos (NSFW)

Oh, the Pirelli calendar. How many people in the world know more of the beautiful, semi-naked models and famed photographers that are drawn together annually than they do about the fact that Pirelli makes tires? The calendar is an event upon itself, and 2015 brings a fetish themed star-studded set of images photographed by Steven Meisel, and styled by Carine Roitfeld. Photos from the calendar…

Object fetish: weekend watch

In Raquel Zimmermann‘s reality she’s decked out in head-to-toe Marc Jacobs, traversing the escalators of a shopping mall. But in her imagination, in her fantasy – perhaps even someone else’s – the accessories are the only thing she’s wearing. In Nick Knight’s video, the scenes cuts between the clothed reality and the naked one, focussing on the accessories as the object fetish for which all…

Copying yourself

We’ve certainly looked at allegations of photo shoots being a little more than inspired by other works before now, but this one is a little different. Photographer Steven Meisel is oddly being accused of copying himself. Which honestly makes no sense on the face of it, but becomes a little clearer when you look at the details behind his two photo shoots.

The Lanvin dance: I Know You Want Me

There’s nothing quite like serious fashion given a humorous spin. That’s what this is all about: the serious Lanvin brand given a spin, on the dancefloor no less. Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann look a little like two teenagers dressed up in their mums’ clothing doing a home-made dance routine in front of a camera. Only far more stylish, of course. The stiff and stern…

Next season’s accessories that left an impression

Every season has its must have accessories, and when I finished my three tour of the autumn / fall 2011 fashion catwalks in March this year I was left in no doubt that statement hats were the statement for the season. While they wouldn’t all necessarily translate to the street, it was easy to depart the catwalks of the likes of Louis Vuitton and Burberry…

A soft turn: Raquel Zimmermann

With the skirmish of rival colours in almost every wardrobe this season, it’s getting difficult to set eyes on something that’s minimalistic and soft. But this editorial acts like a warm cup of tea that comforts you, makes you nostalgic but still keeps you in concert with the present times. In this case, spring 2011 trends. Raquel Zimmermann characterises retro sensuality with a kiss of…

Alexander Wang makes bricks the new medium

Everyone knows advertising fuels the fashion industry these days. In a world with no money and high demands, making fashion look irresistible in an ad is the perfect way to draw the pennies from the pocket. Not satisfied with the usual campaign platforms – magazines, billboards, TV – Alexander Wang is making a move to new mediums: New York walls. Using strategically placed vans and…
