Fashion does it Better


More Now

      Kelly Mittendorf @ Marilyn (NY) Third time this week, third topic about Kelly Mittendorf and another opportunity to show another side of her work. You already saw her in a quiet mood on her images by Nando Esparza and had a glimpse at her recent digitals where we let you imagine another part of the story was on its way. And here we go. Kelly by Billy Kidd, capturing the crazy side yet not in the way you could expect. Extreme features would certainly work well for some spooky mood but the result is surprisingly... [Lire la suite]

Can't Stop

            Kelly Mittendorf @ Marilyn (NY) Had a chance to meet with Nando Esparza last month, at his place in New York and if you're not too messy to write down an address correctly (as we are), you will surely enjoy the little trip up to Amsterdam Avenue then enjoy the photographer's inspiration even more. From his way to work, the detail that striked us most was his will to uncover everything others seem to hide and the patient yet easy-going manner he has to shoot until he captures the greatest....

Baby Did A Good Good Thing

Eniko Mihalik @ Marilyn (NY) After weeks swallowing campaign after campaign with different levels of joy or boredom, after a few days sleeping in front of the screen when Haute Couture collections started to show up, finally time of covers is coming again. At last. Excitement started with Numéro Tokyo and LOVE last week or so and we could add Numéro (the original edition this time) to this list that we sincerely hope to see grow in the upcoming days. Glossy yet thought-provoking pictures are often what takes us away from feeling too... [Lire la suite]

On The Wings Of The Nightingale

Merethe Hopland @ Marilyn (NY) Modeling is like silent acting. Regardless if we are talking of stills or motions, it's a performance of replacing words by emotions: the translation of feelings through face's expressions and body language. We'll never repeat this enough times, we'll never get the impression of being broken records when we do so. And precious examples of it are always opportunities of writing priceless entries here. Merethe Hopland by Billy Kidd, inspiration squared. Merethe is the perfect reminder that fresh... [Lire la suite]

My Heart Never Healed (From This Love)

          Eniko Mihalik @ Marilyn (NY) Scenes from the past spiced up with a few anachronic details or smart recipe made of timeless items that still may be able to catch the spirit of today (with a nostalgic feeling for yesterday and an eye looking at tomorrow). Hard to find the exact words to describe, hard to describe anyway without falling into the usual honeytrap of making a catalogue of references, past or current. Feelings usually do it better when it comes to comment some editorials (from US Harper's... [Lire la suite]

Bo & Billy

      Bo Don @ Marilyn (NY) Bo Don. The name is short, efficient and sounds sleek, like a perfect description of Bo's beauty in five letters. With an interesting introduction during Paris Fall 2010 fashion week, booking a few of the most coveted shows in town like Balenciaga, Chloe or Yves Saint Laurent, the latest newbie from Wilma Wakker in The Netherlands to go international started on the right foot. And early editorial signs are beyond positive as well which basically means this post shouldn't be the last time we... [Lire la suite]

Less Talk, More Marilyn

Liu Wen @ Marilyn (NY) Even if we were about to put it in the love and bookmark section, it's not so much about agency's communication and strategies this time. Of course, we have to pay attention and tribute again to these short polaroid-updates on Marilyn NY's blog just using one picture which quickly turns as a statement when you read the page. But what makes us love and bookmark again the page, is the recent moves in Liu Wen's career and how we relate to this evolution. We started working with d'management in Milan quite long...

FDIB loves and bookmarks: Marilyn NY twitting Pauline

Pauline van der Cruysse @ Dominique (Belgium), Elite (Paris), Marilyn (NY) It was one of these nights you feel so lucky to be on twitter! If you stay wired almost all the time and double check everything regularly, it's the place to catch some pearls while they are still freshly twitted. Marilyn New York is certainly one of the most active agency when it comes to new media with a very well updated facebook page, live performance on twitter during fashion weeks and an awesome new blog that perfectly reflects the agency's brand...

Q/A: FDIB + Chadwick Tyler feat. Gwen Loos

Gwen Loos @ Marilyn (NY) Fashion Does It Better: What role plays inspiration in your work and what's the weight of technique in the process ? Chadwick Tyler: A basic requirement for any good photographer, of course, is that they have good technique, that they know how to take a picture, that they know how to manipulate light and that they understand composition. But as so many students of prestigious art schools learn, there are scores of people who can master good technique. One also needs a profound source of inspiration.... [Lire la suite]

Countryside, Countrywide ?

  Lindsey Wixson @ Marilyn (NY) Moody pout plus melancholic gaze and endless legs are the first thing you may notice on the runway when Lindsey walks. Vivid and playful attitude is what catch your attention once she goes backstage and the portrait is far from finished. Her book was carefully build with the helping hands (and cameras) of James Mahon or Marilyn's Dean Rodgers among others, capturing every single side of Lindsey's potential but leaving untouched the biggest part of the mystery. We started to discover more of... [Lire la suite]
