Editorial Love: A distorted glare

12 Feb

Just before I dive headlong into the pulsating Fall 2011 fashion weeks, starting from NYFW, i had to share this blogpost.

These are the sort of editorials I admire and want to make into posters on my wall. It’s a beautiful fusion of excellent photography, fashion and art. The images were intentionally distorted but still managed to retain a crystal clear quality and the motion, i love motion photography. Don’t forget the clothes, all touching on Spring trends, electric colour and 70s influence.

The editorial featured models Nane Fesit and Crista Cober and was shot by Pierre Dal Corso.

Louboutin Spring Summer Tour

23 Jan

The fusion between art and fashion is beautiful. It’s like a collision of two creative forces and quite exciting to see. One designer who constantly makes this happen is Christian Louboutin, all you need do is check out his fantasy themed site and you’ll see what I mean.

For the coming season he collaborated with photographer Khuong Nguyen to make a stunning Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook tagged Louboutin Spring Summer Tour. The concept gives life to the shoes and makes them take on a whole new persona, more or less like ‘the Louboutins day out.’

Phenomenal photographer; Perfect art

When Nick Knight is doing the photography, you can be sure you’re getting out-of-the-box artistic photography. This editorial was featured in the November edition of Vogue UK, featuring Brazilian model Raquel Zimmermann, styled by Lucinda Chambers.

Refined Rebel, as interpreted by Nick Knight.

A certain Je na sais quoi

27 Nov

Must be the combination of soft curls, intense blue eyes, round tortoise shell geek chic like glasses, dark sequinned blouse, berry lipstick, i don’t know what.

Bottom-line, this is a striking portrait. Never mind that the editorial was about hairstyles.

Amazing editorials part 1: Tao Okamoto by Solve Sundsbo in Vogue China

11 Oct

I’ve come across some breathtaking editorials from the arsenal of Vogue magazine. The Vogue approach is reminiscent of high fashion art, with great creative concepts that leave you jaw dropped and gaping. It goes beyond styling clothes cum shooting with iconic photographer to creating an almost poetic display of style.

So, when the beautiful Japanese model Tao Okamoto was photographed by the brilliant Solve Sundsbo for Vogue China – the September 2010 issue – you can only imagine the outcome. It was beyond fashion, it was artistic and very captivating, there was something subtly futuristic and almost abstract about each picture. I could buy one of these printed in life-size and set up in my living room.

A mighty feat for the Mad Men series, Fall 2010’s key silhouette is feminine, hour glass, circa 50’s-60’s fashion. Most major magazines are featuring this trend for the October issue and I am totally loving it. Viva Ladylike chic!

So, Elle Korea did a feature tagged ‘Amazing Grace’ with American model Hilary Rhoda. Photography was by Ryan Yoon, styling byVittoria Cerciello.

I still think her name is weird but well she’s right beside Tyra Banks in my supermodel hall of fame.
