Acne Studios has just released their capsule collection for Summer 2013. The collection is inspired by Eduardo García Benito’s graphic illustration of a woman’s face in profile, sketched for Vogue’s July 1931 cover. Jonny Johansson has designed graphite prints which he have been splashing across breezy summer dresses, voluminous skirts, super cool t-shirts, court shoes as well as baseball caps. The designer also refers to the Art Deco era, and mentions in an interview with Vogue Daily ‘Art Deco is the definition of modernism and classism combined’. I couldn’t agree more. My favorite from the capsule line is definitely the scarf, I am head over heels in love with the turquoise one with lime hints, and wouldn’t mind wearing in like the model underneath – tied like a bandana with the knot in front.
The debut of the new magazine System is set to May this Spring and it is a deep-thought magazine about the fashion industry brought to us by an editorial board of very influential persons – Alexia Niedzielski & Elizabeth von Guttman (editors at Interview magazine and co-founders of Ever Manifesto), Jonathan Wingfield (former editor of Numéro), Thomas Lenthal (art director of the journal Paradis) and stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé. Their aim is to explore the social environment of fashion in context of what happens when a designer leaves a fashion house or an e-commerce site overtakes a traditional retailer. First interview puts focus on Nicolas Ghesquière, who is photographed by Juergen Teller. I am really looking forward to this issue, not only because of the in-depth interview with Ghesquière but also since it is covering profiles such as Yves Carcelle and Azzedine Alaïa. For now, System will be released twice a year, and hopefully that will continue on.
I love this cover of AnOther Magazine featuring Michelle Williams – the laid back look with the boyfriend jeans and college sweater styled with a completely non-matchable accessory, a feather hat. The pictures is photographed by Willy Vanderperre. Inside the magazine there was also an editorial that caught my eye with Kati Nescher photographed by Daniel Jackson and styled by Mattias Karlsson. Wouldn’t mind every single look! Yet again, we can spot the Céline fur slippers…
If there is one model I just love for the moment, it is the Estonian model Karmen Pedaru. I find her look timeless and when I spot her in everything from editorials to street style, I jump high. She is not only delivering and shine on magazine covers but also on the streets after the shows. Above she covers the latest issue of Flair Magazine photographed by Katja Rawhles. In the inside story Karmen is styled by Sissy Vian in a mixture of glam tailored, graphic and textured attire by the likes of Francesco Scognamiglio, Alaïa, Balmain, Chanel and many others.
Just spotted this editorial in Numéro Tokyo April 2013 issue. I am having a soft spot when it comes to denim editorials, I just love it. Simple, cool, classic, and most important of all – so inspiring. Carolyn Murphy is styled in denim on denim paired with cool statement accessories, like the Saint Laurent S/S13 felt hat and leather harnesses. The editorial is photographed by Nino Munoz.
The new issue of Numéro Magazine hits the stands this week and the cover features Aymeline Valade by Richard Bush. I find it so beautiful. Numéro always transmit a certain feeling that I can’t put my finger on. A good feeling of course, since it makes me want to run down to the store and get the magazine. I couldn’t find any editorial pictures from it yet, so I have gathered some favorites from recent editorials underneath. First out: Wild by Gregory Harris starring Missy Ryder, Wide Angle by Anthony Maule starring Janice Alida (I love that Miu Miu coat from the S/S13 collection…) and Céleste Ulysse Fréchelin.
‘Peru gives you vertigo. Between the heights of Huascarán and the beaches of Lima, there is a difference of 7000 metres. For this issue, we made the jump with Mario Testino.’ For the April issue of Vogue Paris the magazine has travelled around the world to a very exotic location, more specific Peru in South America. The cover features Isabeli Fontana, as well as in an editorial inside a long with Kate Moss. Special guest for this issue is Mario Testino and it is in his homeland the pictures are taken. Inside the magazine Testino not only takes Vogue Paris on a personal tour, but also reveals his favorite spots. The issue are available in new stands in a couple of days.
First of all, great cover. Heather Marks looks stunning in an amazing Valentino gown. Second of all, that clutch from Louis Vuitton is amazing! So cool. I have begun to dig Louis Vuitton pieces – leather goods, clucthes, shoulder bags….you name it. Ok, not the cheesy one, by all means. But the cool and retro stuff. I’ll show you more what I mean later. Anyway, this cover is photgraphed by Xevi Muntané for Haper’s Bazaar Spain December 2012.
Special guest editor for the Vogue Paris December/January 2012/2013 issue is no more than the first lady of France, Carla Bruni. With her bohemian taste she shares her inpirations, musical preferences and more in this Christmas doubble-issue. As well as modelling for one of the editorials photgraphed by Mario Sorrenti, Carla Bruni also fronts the cover, snapped by Mert & Marcus, looking super fresh with her amazing fringe and a washed-out denim shirt. Editor in chief, Emmanuelle Alt, is a very good friend of Carla, and she said that “It has been a real pleasure to create this special Christmas issue with an old friend“. Pretty cool to have that opportunity. This highly maximized issue hits stores today, on Decemer 3rd.
