Cottage By The Sea

Vogue Italia featured, once again, the controversial work of fashion photographer Steven Meisel. German models Toni Garrn and Katrin Thormann star in this cinema inspired editorial entitled "Cottage by the Sea" that was published in the magazine's November 2008 issue.
Hints of Ingmar Bergman's 1966 art-film "Persona" can be seen in these ambiguous, surreal pictures taken at a beautiful but gloomy seaside location.

Reflections of Glamour

From mild, floating mist are emerging figures of perfect elegance, illusory and sophisticate. They come to life rising from the boundaries of unearthliness. That is the description of this vintage-inspired fashion editorial entitled Reflections of Glamour and featured in March 2008 issue of Vogue Italia. Photographer Steven Meisel captures ethereal looking Kamila Filipcikova and Agnete Hegelund as old-school glamour muses in a dream-like atmosphere with mirroring and dissolving effects.

Royal Couture

Here is another proof of Steven Meisel's photographic artistry in the form of a fashion editorial simply entitled “Couture”. With a styling that reminds me of 18th century European royal court paintings and especially of Queen Marie Antoinette, these Haute Couture designs are more than appropriate.
Featured in March 2005 issue of Vogue Italia the photo shoot gathers quite the bunch of top-models: Lydia Hearst, Malin Martensson, Kim Noorda, Ilona Kuodiene and Barbara Fialho.

The Enchanted Garden

Enjoy a wonderful pictorial starring supermodel Jessica Stam featured in Vogue Italia (November 2008 issue). The Enchanted Garden photo editorial, shot by London-based Norwegian photographer Sølve Sundsbø, gathers a series of surreal images in a blooming setting.
Jessica Stam plays this puckish character like depicted from a fairy tale and her angelic features, subtle smile and quirky hair-do (styled by Malcolm Edwards) helps a lot.

Dolce & Gabbana fall/winter 2008/2009 ad campaign

Dolce & Gabbana delivers one of the most interesting advertising campaigns of the Fall/Winter 2008/2009 season. Shot in an urban night scene, the ads have a strong dramatic effect owed to edgy fashion photographer Steven Klein, who is known for his dark, erotic, surreal visual aesthetics.
The story of these ads (both womenswear and menswear) talks about a night out with the gang, which is not looking to be a nice pastime. The shots capture Dolce&Gabbana's over-the-top glamour but induce also a quite disturbing feeling.

Givenchy Couture Fall 2008

Riccardo Tisci has done for Givenchy what Nicolas Ghesquière achieved at Balenciaga: making the brand his own, giving it a young, modern, urban edge. Of course the classic Givenchy spirit remains intact through sharp tailoring and attention to detail. But the gothic-glamour style, biker jackets and head-to-toe one-color outfits are Tisci's signature.

Recollections of the Fall

Magalie Daignault is captured by the lenses of Canadian photographer Nelson Simoneau for the October issue of Pure Magazine. The fashion editorial called "Souvenirs D'Automne" shot in a Catholic cemetery evokes Italian Cinema dramas of 50s/60s with its retro styling and with Magalie playing "la bella vedova" - a beautiful and young widow. She reminds me of sultry diva Anna Magnani in those pics, especially when dressed in the Prada black lace dress.

Emilio Pucci fw 2008/09 ad campaign

The latest ad campaign for Emilio Pucci benefits from the photographic talent of controversial Juergen Teller and from the presence of graceful, captivating Italian model, Mariacarla Boscono.

Juergen Teller, known for the "snap-shot aestetics" in fashion manages to create a perfectly viable mix between colorful, seventies inspired Emilio Pucci designs, the harsh light and overwrought setting: lavish, slightly baroque interiors.

The fall-winter 2008/09 ad campaign for D&G makes a fortunate step away from the tiresome images of care-free, partying young & beautiful people. The pictures shot by anglophile Mario Testino have as inspiration point old portrayals of the British royal family while the most of the collection itself was inspired by Helen Mirren in "The Queen".
