Fashion does it Better

A Matter of Labels

Delphie What do you do when you have five minutes free while working on a Sunday ? Go to the bookshop at the train station and check out what new magazines they have in store. And as far as we remember, only French Elle and a couple more french glossies with no guarantee to find a nice one. Though, this week's Elle was pretty interesting (visually, as we haven't read one word yet). Most interesting part was probably their "new faces" topic, called "future top models". A bit awkward, of course, but always raising some interesting... [Lire la suite]

Such Golden Rules

    Tsanna Latouche @ Premier (London) The golden opportunity! A few weeks ago, Premier sent us Tsanna's book asking if we were interesting. Sure we were but needed to wait till the first pieces made in London were out, something that would make sense like a new tests/fresh polas combo. Here we go as Jessie Craig shot with Tsanna and fell in love, unstoppable when it came to describe her beauty and praise her potential. Still some secrets hidden for her, according to our friend photographer and you beg you to read and weigh... [Lire la suite]

Take it for Granted, see it in my Eyes

Magdalena Jasek @ Eskimo, Free (Poland), Marilyn (Paris & NY) We briefly talked about Magdalena Jasek's case in our previous post, covering the whole bunch of girls walking for Gaspard Yurkievich and dropped a few words on her being among the lucky ones in Jean Paul Gaultier's most expensive casting in seasons. That's it, that's not the groundbreaking news of the week but that's what really matters in the end: seeing one of our favorites from the new generation taking off and keeping a steady pace during Paris fashion week. Too... [Lire la suite]

Cabs for Cuties*

Jac @ IMG, in Numéro 111 by Miguel Reveriego as scanned by elsaskywalker from thefashionspot.com Exclusive. That little word with a long meaning and a variable definition. How does a girl become exclusive. From many mouthes, you will hear by "signing an exclusivity contract with a brand" and they might be yelling it at you as if it was the most obvious thing on earth. Well, this is a kind of exclusivity as it prevents the model from working with anyone else for the whole duration of that contract. But does it really... [Lire la suite]

Tu seras toujours Mon Léon

        Yulia Leontieva @ Silent (Paris), Storm (London), Marilyn (NY), Why Not (Milan) Mags and musics, pages and pitches. That's the way the afternoon went away (already). Started by chance while buying that infamous salmon sandwich for lunch and turned into one of the biggest topic of the year so far. The Editorial Evening. Magazine galore at FDIB and Yulia Leontieva in Lula. Partly because of Yulia in Lula, actually. True to herself -- shy, playful, impish, flirtatious and all of them at the same moment, Yulia...

Dear Dishevelled

        Katlin Aas @ EMA (Estonia), Marilyn (NY, Paris), Tess (London), Women (Milan) Dear Dishevelled Beautiful Girl on the silky paper of Dansk Magazine, we miss you a lot this season. Miss your look and your attitude on the catwalk. Miss your unusually beautiful features and unique face shape (and ears). Miss your crow-black hair and pale skin. But we're so happy to see you in Dansk, shot by Scott Trindle and styled by John McCarty. We will always remember you after Miu Miu near the métro station close to the... [Lire la suite]

Wichita

Lindsey Wixson @ Marilyn (NY) We could do it but we're not going to wax on Wixson this morning. Let's put it simple and direct to the point and leave the lyrical mood for another day. We could go on for hours it seems, we could go endlessly. From first polas we got from Marilyn NY last Summer to meeting her for five seconds after Miu Miu to the news pouring these days... our interest in Lindsey's career never stopped to grow, our love for her look never found any of the usual limits, our respect for her work is too high to compare....

Everybody loved the show

Tetyana Melnychuk @ Marilyn (NY) The Tetyana Melnychuk show by Jonathan Waiter. That's probably how we should have named this short story exploring Tetyana's most unexpected sides including the most precious and vulnerable. We finally went for everybody loved the show as these pieces of work were actually milestones for everyone and a great moments - we imagine. For the photographer, the model, her mother agent from Argentina and for our own eyes, when the set arrived in front of them. We surely knew Tetyana was a special one... [Lire la suite]

Ginger Inger

        Lys Inger @ Avant (Russia), Marilyn (Paris, NY) If you don't write Avant Models black on white next to her name, it would be pretty hard to figure out where a girl like Lys Inger comes from. Obviously Russian when you know her mother agency but nothing in her (nick-)name or even her face screams East or West. Truth is she looks like a globetrotter from head to toe and was perfect for an editorial that seemed heavily inspired by traveling around the world. Wicked boho-chic or urban jungle, call the mood...

Skills against Skeptics

Hanna Rundlof @ Modellink (Sweden), Marilyn (NY, Paris), Why Not (Milan) Quite unusual features that can also give her quite a classic appeal somehow. The mystery of Hanna might be in both her unique profile and the way she poses, this delicate presence in front of the camera that goes from quiet to playful in a simple wink. Last season saw her take off with several precious bookings from runways to prints. After our trip in Paris last March, we understood how her uncanny appeal comes from her atittude mixed to her look and... [Lire la suite]
