Fashion does it Better

High Octane

      Rosanne @ Bloom Management (The Netherlands) First steps. Would have been quite a good pun for a title and would make sense. First steps into the "real" editorial world for Rosanne and first issue of Ponystep Magazine, aka the talk of the town in Paris last week. And that's a pretty nice feeling to write a few lines on Rosanne again, after introducing the "girl with the golden scar" a few months ago. Not a short update with a few test shots nor a couple of tearsheets from an obscure publication that doesn't do... [Lire la suite]

Wild Water

        Lena Hardt @ Joy (Milan) Taking a short break from New York fashion week's frenzy, let's stop running and rushing for a couple hour and check out what's new in our favorite glossy pages. Amica was among the first one that crossed our minds (and eyes) when we started looking for other inspirations than shows and backstage atmosphere. And, once again, the italian magazine didn't fail to impress and confirm it's rock-solid position as one of the most interesting place to start for a newcomer. This month, it's... [Lire la suite]

Visages, Figures

Georgina Stojiljkovic @ Supreme Patricia van der Vliet @ NY ModelsKarolina Kurkova @ IMG Missy Rayder @ IMGHannelore Knuts @ Ford We fade to Grey or the show must go on? That's maybe the last question we asked ourselves between Saturday and Sunday. Saturday night fever finished fast and Sunday seems still far away, only Grey Magazine keeps going places in our heads right now. Patricia's fuzzy blurred cover by Ellen Von Unwerth or Missy's black and white standout by Beau Grealy could be the highlights. Or did we spot Chadwick... [Lire la suite]

Remix #2: Now or Never

        Anne Sophie @ Modelwerk (Germany), Ford (NY), Fabiana @ Marilyn (NY), Elin @ Elite (NY) and Pauline @ Marilyn (NY) The Now Girls. Sounds quite deja vu, sounds like this concept has been used over and over again. Nothing new under the sun or above the thick snow coat laying on the ground. But after all, this kind of stories counts among the regular excercises in fashion and modeling, the same way as "the best items of the season" or whatever they are called. A bunch of models, who embody the zeitgeist... [Lire la suite]

Instill

      Melodie @ Wilhelmina (NY) and Anais @ Ford (NY) Sometimes you say too much, sometimes not enough. Same here, sometimes we write too much and sometimes words are simply lacking. Words are friends some days and enemies the next morning and all this vicious circle makes hard to find the right balance. Trying to, though and we guess it happens we work it out. Drop by drop, fighting sleepless nights and meaningless dreams with the best sides of our imagination, maybe that's where the path starts and it's up to us to... [Lire la suite]

This Ain't No Technological Breakdown, This Is The Road [...]

  Pauline @ Marilyn (NY) It was quite a hard task to find an editorial topic for the end of this week. Not that the materials were lacking, many things to put our eys on (then off) but was never easy to pick some visuals that go hand in hand with our current inspirations or states of mind. So, had to check and double-check, take ideas where we found them and adapt them to the current editorial pages we found interesting enough to show right now. And it's definitely the last part of the sentence that make sense. Everything (or... [Lire la suite]

Tatatata Bengbengbeng (All The Rage)

      Valerija Kelava and Hanne Gaby Odiele @ Ford (NY), Hannah Holman @ Elite (NY) Working till two in the morning, waking up with loud disco straight in the ears and working again. Did we even sleep or did we dream we slept? That is the question and a very good one. Vogue Italia is not a dream, though it's a shame it hasn't reached our favorite bookshop yet -- will probably have to kick some asses soon if we want to get it in time.. next time. Because this issue is all the rage here and now, and makes us eager to see... [Lire la suite]

Who, Baby, Who Will Save The World (It's Not Too Late)

Rasa Zukauskaite @ Next Between relief and bitternesss. Two words that should fit for the state of mind of many people involved or following the show season. Relieved as the frenzy is over now, no rush anymore and atmosphere feels lighter again. Bitter or bittersweet when something important hasn't come true (yet?) or when all went too fast and you keep in mouth and mind the taste of missed opportunities. Despite the comments of some observers, Rasa Zukauskaite's season shouldn't bring any frustration or biterness to anyone... [Lire la suite]

Beauty (Blush)

            Abbey Lee Kershaw @ Next Abbey Lee might be the most remarkable plsatinum-blonde of these days, the latest piece of editorial work we have of her still showcases her natural hair color (in black and white but still). Shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo, published in The Gentlewoman (the most amazing thing we've had in hands these last few months, see more here), Blush is more exactly a beauty story and you may start thinking we've became obsessed by beauty stories. Obsessed... [Lire la suite]

Judging The Book By Its Cover

Grey like the sky we like, grey like an atmosphere. If we begin with Grey Magazine, we can hardly stop so let's rather spare our words tonight and keep them for the day we'll have it in hands and see what's inside for real. Let's stop and spare, and let's stick to the cover. Beautiful and simple, simply beautiful and beautifully simple (sorry for using that old trick again) as we wish every cover would be (or become). Plain and powerful, like a lost treasure you would find again by chance. As subtle as it's simple, showing what... [Lire la suite]
