LIFE IS OUT THERE. GO LIVE IT.>>

生活,是由一個物件連著一個物件組合而成的結果. 美學,是一種毋須多言就能心神領會的感受. 品味,則是在空氣中不斷薰染開來的風氣. 設計,像是一場幽默的視覺遊戲,讓看似平凡的柴米油鹽都變得十分有趣. http://www.facebook.com/dester168

Alek Wek: Alpha Female

leave a comment »


The supermodel wears this season’s fetish trend with aplomb

Giant furry pom poms at David Koma, Yasmin Le Bon stalking the Issa catwalk – fashion’s most breathtaking moments are undoubtedly beautiful… but are they really revolutionary? A world where something can feel as current and fresh as today’s headlines one day and be considered irrelevant the next surely points to a vacuous one. But at the heart of the outwardly transient world of fashion is something with a much steelier core. A £20.9 billion industry which fuels the British economy; a platform on which to make profound statements (Vivienne Westwood’s political T-shirts are often more powerful than many of our elected leaders’ speeches) and a tool which is used repeatedly by everyone from world leaders to celebrities to royalty to tribesmen to convey agendas. In short, fashion is power.

So it’s fitting that this season’s biggest trend is designed to make a powerful statement. When bondage-taped bodices, sheer skirts and leather made an appearance at the a/w 2011 shows, fetish was crowned as the season’s breakthrough trend. Designers in every fashion capital looked to dominatrix style: Ralph Lauren in New York, Giles in London and Louis Vuitton in Paris all played with leather and the highly charged conceal-and-reveal trend.

And who better to showcase this trend and present the message of ‘fashion is power’ than Alek Wek, a woman renowned for her fierce modelling style. Since her arrival on the catwalk in 1995 aged 18, her personality and back story have made her one of the greatest characters in supermodel history and she’s been credited for single-handedly changing the traditional concept of what is beautiful in the west. Although Alek herself recalls not understanding the debate that raged around her. “Everyone around me was like, ‘Is she going to make it? She’s so different,’” she tells me later. “I was like, ‘Different, how? I think I’m very normal actually.’” Others will disagree. Photographers love her, with Steven Meisel musing, “I haven’t seen anybody that interesting, that black and that beautiful in a long time.”

Dazed & Confused takes on the fall collections with a 60 plus page editorial by Kacper Kasprzyk filled with a wild assortment of clothing styled by Katie Shillingford, Robbie Spencer and Karen Langley. With three top tier stylists and nearly 40 models from established stars, to new faces and kids fresh from the street, the story qualifies as a full on fashion extravaganza.

2010 Year In Review : Editorials

with one comment


Miu Miu | Ph. Mark Segal | Magazine : Interview
Models: Ann Kenny & Kirby Kenny | Fashion Editor: Ludivine Poiblanc | Hair: Rudi Lewis | Makeup: Peter Philips

Echoing the film The Shining and its eerie mood, Segal uses twins Ann & Kirby to create an enjoyably off-kilter story.

Photos by Roe | Ph. Roe Etheridge | Magazine : Dazed & Confused
Models: Tasha Tilberg, Karolina Kurkova, Hannelore Knuts, Julia Stegner, Alek Wek, Ana Beatriz Barros & Christina Kruse | Hair: Duffy | Makeup: Lisa Houghton

The combined talents of Etheridge, Duffy and Lisa Houghton combine to offer up a novel twist on the beauty story that transforms the industry’s biggest girls.

Water & Oil | Ph. Steven Meisel | Magazine : Vogue Italia
Model: Kristen McMenamy | Fashion Editor: Karl Templer | Hair: Orlando Pita | Makeup: Pat McGrath

With one of the most topical and timely editorials of the year, Steven Meisel used fashion to comment on the current environmental crisis.

Cut & Paste | Ph. Damien Blottiere | Magazine : Dazed & Confused
Models: Victoire Maçon-Dauxerre & Christian Ochsenfahrt | Fashion Editor: Robbie Spencer | Hair: Nicolas Eldin | Makeup: Sergio Corvacho

Pure imagination. Blottiere’s use of cut outs to create images never fails to excite and impress.

Festin | Ph. Terry Richardson | Magazine : Vogue Paris
Model: Crystal Renn | Fashion Editor: Carine Roitfeld | Hair: Luigi Murenu | Makeup: Charlotte Tilbury| Sets: Jean-Hughes de Chatillon

A truly audacious tribute to Guy Bourdin and one of the year’s most talked about stories. Is it unflattering? Is it tongue in cheek? Is it just plain ol’ grotesque? This story had a way of pushing people’s buttons.

Zara Gorman | Ph. Ben Toms | Magazine : AnOther
Model: Jeneil Williams | Fashion Editor: Cathy Edwards | Hair: Naoki Komiya | Makeup: Hiromi Ueda

With simple premise and a bit of cool styling, Ben Toms crafts an enviably chic studio editorial; note to the the powers that be, this is how its done!

Un dimanche à la campagne | Ph. Mikael Jansson | Magazine : Vogue Paris
Models: Sasha Pivovarova & Ava | Fashion Editor: Anastasia Barbieri | Hair: Anthony Turner | Makeup: Mark Carrasquillo | Sets: Mary Howard

Great casting makes you rethink your models; who would have ever thought of Sasha as maternal until this editorial came along. The sweet story was a breath of fresh air and strikingly different from VP’s in your face, controversy inducing fare.

The Family Circus | Ph. Paolo Roversi | Magazine : W
Models: Lindsey Wixson, Britt Maren, Anais Pouliot & Arizona Muse | Fashion Editor: Alex White | Hair: Julien d’Ys | Makeup: Lucia Pieroni | Sets: Piers Hanmer

Enchanting, atmospheric and quintessentially Roversi with a cast of bright new stars; if the revamped W gave us more like this every month we certainly wouldn’t mind.

Double Vision | Ph. Sølve Sundsbø | Magazine : Interview
Models: Anais Mali & Melodie Monrose | Fashion Editor: Ludivine Poiblanc | Hair: | Makeup:

This is just a flawless editorial. Striking use of color, movement and 70′s style ensembles. The fact that Melodie and Anais are incredible together certainly doesn’t hurt things either.

Star Signs | Ph. Tim Gutt | Magazine: British Vogue
Model: Siri Tollerod | Fashion Editor: Kate Phelan | Hair: James Pecis| Makeup: Kay Montano | Sets: Shona Heath

With a whimsical and witty take on the astrological chart, Tim Gutt’s fantastical editorial was the perfect way to end the year. Shona Heath’s larger than life sets are out of this world.
