Paint it Red: Editorial Lurv

30 Mar

Every once in a smoky blue moon, you come across an editorial that stops you in your tracks and has you gaping, totally mesmerized. Sometimes it’s the flawless styling, sometimes it’s the way the beautiful clothes have been interpreted in stunning photography, sometimes it’s just the sheer life, you know, the joie de vivre oozing out of the model, set and pictures.

Well, this is one of those moments, and what has me so wowed this time is the zest, the va va voom and energy of the editorial; plus the focus on vibrant hues of red and pink, major colours for the Spring season.

And of course I spot the resplendent red asymmetrical Lanvin dress, that dress dazzles in every shoot the way it dazzled on the runway. Then the pink fluoro Jil Sander skirt. Too much to love about this editorial.

Don’t be startled by the close up of the model – Carola Remer’s toothy smile, it’s just joy; joy for great fashion, lol.

This splendid work was styled by fashion editor Marie Chaix for the spring summer issue of Self Service.

H&M has done a really pretty interpretation of key Spring trends for the high street. For a campaign tagged “Romantic Preppy,” Jourdan Dunn did a lovley job, it’s so good to see her all girly, bubbly and full of smiles, nice departure from the straight faced runway pictures.

All key trends well represented, bright colours, florals, white,  lace, wide leg pants and you bet in prices we all can afford.

Editorial Retro: The famous ‘Alice in Wonderland’ by US Vogue

11 Dec

I take a major fancy to editorials because they’re one of the best outlets for creative expression in fashion. And if you’re looking to find the creative director who has turned out some of the most amazing editorials, look no further than Grace Coddington of US Vogue.

Seven years after this editorial, we’re still loving it. Asides from the fact that I love Alice in Wonderland the classic, the editorial brings the story to life in style and takes inspiration from ten major designers. Alice (Natalia Vodianova) wore dresses from their collections and then they stepped it up by involving each designer in the shoot. Monsieur Lagerfeld himself was right there in wonderland, and it was hilarious to see Viktor and Rolf posing as Tweedledee and Tweedledum.

That’s the amazing magic that happens when you put two legends in a room, Grace Coddington and Annie Liebovitz work some magic.

Spring 2011 Fashion with a Zing!

7 Dec

This editorial is the best expression of Spring 2011 I’ve seen so far. It channels key trends for Spring 2011 and screams girl power, that’s my best part, gotta love girl power. The shoot has got so much oomph! Coming from New York Times Style Magazine, this is definitely Zing!

The fierce model group wore some of my favourite designers, Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Oscar de la Renta and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, featuring lots of bright colour and floaty floral print.  Love Love Love!
