Coco Rocha for Elle Canada

I love Coco Rocha and so does Jean Paul Gaultier. She is decked out in his designs once again on the cover of and in this spread from Elle Canada May 2011 issue.


Marie Claire Spain – Beachwear

Fantastic editorial from Marie Claire Spain June 2011 issue, shot by David Roemer. I love the dramatic styling of the black garments against the bright beach and waves. 


Iza Olak for Elle Spain

Love the other-worldly feel of the setting and the soft colors in this story. Model Iza Olak for Elle Spain July 2011. Great styling, amazing sheer and metallic pieces.


Edie Campbell – Numéro China May 2011

Edie Campbell is a really versatile model it seems, she can look like a school girl, all dolled up old-school glamorous, and apparently with the right make up, kind of Asian. The editorial was shot by Tiziano Magni for Numéro China May 2011 issue (#8) and styled by Joseph Carle. There are some great pieces in this spread, I love the really low crotch harem pants, and the mustard-colored embellished top. Once again the beige leather Gucci top has made it’s way into yet another editorial, I think this is the third one, maybe even fourth, that I’ve spotted it in, does that garment have it’s own marketing team?


Amy Winehouse – In Memory of a Brilliant Talent

By now the news of the passing of Amy Winehouse has made its way around the world, and I’m sure many of you are as grief-stricken as I am. This is my little memorial for the talented and tragic Amy.

She was one of the stars who captured the attention of the world. Her music is original and yet, nostalgic. It’s real, it has much emotion and it speaks of a person who isn’t perfect, a person who struggles with many issues, and hurts deeply. And, her music is beautiful. It has brought me a great amount of pleasure, and I feel consoled in that we will always have at least this much of her.

Her impact on fashion was enormous. Everyone knows her look, and a great number of designers and stylists emulated it, over many seasons. She has earned her place as a fashion icon, with the likes of Kurt Cobain, who passed away at the same age as Amy, 27. Actually, 27 is the age at which many great musical icons have left us, including Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison. I keep thinking of the lyrics from “Front Row” by Metric,

“Burnout stars they shine so bright…”

Vogue Turkey – On The Morning of The Club

This editorial from the July 2011 issue of Vogue Turkey depicts some very fun girls the morning after a night of partying. The styling is that perfect disheveled sexy that is so intriguing even to those of us who are normally well-behaved and groomed to perfection.

V Magazine #71 – Butoh In Black

Very surreal and haunting editorial, brings to mind Japanese horror films, very beautiful. Models Sui He and Aline Weber, photographed by Glen Luchford, styled by Beat Bolliger.
