Taking leave from the sea

It’s no wonder the mermaid as fashion inspiration is such a popular theme for fashion editorials. It’s an opportune excuse to make excursions to seaside locations, to bask in the sun, and to mix fashion with a little (or even a lot) of fantasy. Patrick Demarchelier brings the latest example for Vogue Japan. Saskia De Brauw is on a “mermaid’s holiday”, trading her tail for…

Metal Metropolis gone fetish

Interview Magazine called it Metal Headz: “a new modern armour… like a gilded cage for the body”, referencing the “eroticism of a constricted silhouette that demands a sharp intake of breath.” A sharp intake of breath indeed. Styled by Karl Templer (who also just wowed us with this transformation of Katy Perry in the same issue) it’s a futuristic vision that recalls Fritz Lang’s Metropolis…

Linda Evangelista joins The Misfits

It’s the kind of shoot where you don’t notice much fashion. There’s plenty of blurring, obscuring, plenty of techniques from Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott that gear towards mood creation. The male models are, for the most part, clothing-less props. The shoot’s main drawcard – one time supermodel Linda Evangelista – is veiled, blurred, smudged with lipstick and left looking a little lost; but what…

Lagerfeld’s vision of the twenties

Part of the joy of a flapper fashion revival is – even if only in your imagination – reliving the golden age of the 1920s. It’s hard to slip on a bias-cut silk gown or a fringed frock that shimmies with every step without also imagining a cigarette holder into your hand, or some vintage Chanel jewels around your neck. In his typical choice of…

Vogue Japan keeps it old school

With the year looming, we’ve already been privy to many a 2012 magazine cover. We’ve had the minimalist, the dramatic and the imposing. What is shared by all those that have caught our eye is that they’re approaching the concept of what a modern magazine cover should be. They’re making it visually appealing as opposed to doing what I dub the old media clutter cover…

Saskia De Brauw: directed virginity

A ‘first time’ for anything can be daunting. Be it a first bicycle ride, first kiss or a first stage performance. Model Saskia De Brauw lived through this very overwhelming notion as she made her debut before Mario Testino’s lens. Also being this Dutch beauty’s first fashion spread to be featured in British Vogue. Such breakthroughs often go unnoticed amongst the juggling riddle of fast-paced…

Givenchy in exstasis

Dizzying angles, creeping shadows, and entangled poses. Exstasis is the kind of artwork that not only draws your eye but forces you to study each image closely to orient yourself and take in the full scene. If you couldn’t tell from the dark intricacy of the clothing, these are all pieces from Richardo Tisci’s reign at Givenchy. Brilliantly shot by Matthew Stone and styled by…

First look: Kate Moss in Pirelli calendar

It’s the fashion calendar to get your hands on, and yet the 2012 Pirelli calendar shows little in the way of fashion. Or, more realistically, it shows little in the way of what most people consider to be ‘fashion': clothes and accessories. Instead the coveted calendar plays to the concepts of fashion and lifestyle, fashion and sensuality, and fashion as youth. The task of realising next year’s…
