Slip on Retro Aviators ~ Dip Into Decade of Decadence

Cara Taylor & Birgit Kos go retro in this modern take on 80’s inspired styling by Hedi Slimane for Vogue Paris, June/July 2017. Part 1 is a distinction of high designs, while Part 11 delves into the depths of decadence. Art expresses itself, revealing in the excess of the enlightened we exceed our intentions. Alive with a kind of 80’s vibe, Slimane shows us a slew of Ray-Ban Sunglasses that will always represent the era of excess.

Saskia de Brauw Finds Forward Motion of High Fashion

Saskia de Brauw opens herself up to the art of evolution in “Brush Up” by Daniel Jackson for Vogue Germany, June 2017. In the fluid findings of futuristic styling comes a phenomenon known as Saskia. Her name alone brings to mind the concept of creativity. Allowing herself to be a vessel for variation we are able to reap the benefits of change. This is where we say the clothes aren’t wearing her, she is wearing the clothing.

Through Tulle of Temptation We Can Feel Our Freedom

Jennae Quisenberry speaks through the tulle of temptation in “Perspective” shot by Matthew Sprout for The Impression, Spring 2017. From Behind I but find you’re fair haired and fine… From Behind I imagine a love intertwined… From Behind I seek solace from the shadows of strain… From Behind I stand silent alone and in pain. Suffer, but I shall not be a buffer from the storm ~ I shall awaken your inner fire and stir those adorned.

Vanessa Axente Asks Us ~ Is This What's Chic? for Pop

Vanessa Axente asks the question “Est-ce Que C’est Chic” by Charlotte Wales for Pop Magazine, SS 2017. Moving bending this way and that working toward the inner flat… a place that takes your boring days turning them into a star studded play. So follow me forth and away we’ll go inside this super Pop studded show. Finding her inner fire, Vanessa uses her figure to frame out this physical pictorial.

Anna Cleveland's Curves Pass Poetically Thru Picasso's Light

Anna Cleveland moves through the museum with intention in “The Iconic Objects” by Olivier Zahm for Vogue Russia, March 2017. Let’s play a game, if you will. Imagine this entire editorial space as a large canvas. Moving and stepping in open format, Cleveland becomes part of the largest frame in history. We see the shadow of abstraction come into view, as Anna imitates a model standing in Picasso’s famed light.

Maartje Verhoef Brings Bold 80's Inspired Beauty Back!

Maartje Verhoef is amped up and ready to go in ‘Fully Charged’ by Charlotte Wales for Vogue UK, 03/17. It’s not often that we come across an editorial with four images that feel full. Here we have a story bursting at the seems, signalling the succulence of Spring coming our way. This season we have art and excess barreling toward each other at the speed of light. And, while that may feel like a furious ride, I’m here to tell you it’s right where you wanna be.

Kate Moss Pulls Us Into a Tale of Secrets/Seduction, W Magazine

Kate Moss and Luka Isaac pull us into a tale of secrets and seduction, in “Belle De Nuit” captured by Mert & Marcus for W Magazine, 03/17. Two enigmatic figures drawn together yet torn apart, this plays to the somber tones of silent era films. An ode to the artistry of decadence. Dress me up dress me down, this plays like Liz Taylor losing her mind in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, or the incomparable Marilyn Monroe in Niagara

Maison Margiela & Schiaparelli Steal Spring 2017 Shows

Haute Couture finds its center as Maison Margiela & Schiaparelli Steal the Spring 2017 Show Season. It’s not often that we have a season so rich in artistic detail. Each collection showcased a series of eclectic styles, but, it was two that literally Brought the House Down. In this world of opposites where the exquisitely strange takes shape, we find daringly different houses playing together on the same high fashion playground.

Jena Goldstack Stands Tall in City "High Style" Txema Yeste

Jena Goldsack stands tall as she embodies the ferocity of the female spirit, in “High Style” by Txema Yeste for Vogue Russia, February 2017. Reaching high she can touch the sky, rising high in triumph over the rooftops. Txema captures our thirst for the extreme as Jena ascends strong in the middle of a dream. In one of the most dramatic stories of the season, this plays with proportions as it elevates the excitement.

Dua Lipa ~ Fashion Sinks Into Soul of 70's ~ V Magazine

Dua Lipa sinks into the soul of the 70’s by Mario Testino for V Magazine #105, Spring Preview 2017. Her voice rips through my mind like whiskey tearing through my chest in kind. Her ballads bring forth a wicked mixture of hope and heretic, as the undulating rhythm meets the poetic rhyme. Leaving behind the idea of rock ‘n’ roll, we find ourselves memorized by the new sounds of… Rock & Soul.

Dynamic wares dare to get things done, as laid back leisure mixes with high end fun.
