Runway Notes Spring/Summer 2012 – Sheer Fashion

The sheer trend is not going away with 2011. Sheer blouses, pants, skirts, and dresses are present in many of the spring/summer 2012 runway shows. These are some of my favorite looks that feature this risque trend from the latest shows.

3.1 Phillip Lim

Dolce & Gabbana

Etro

Helmut Lang

Marc Jacobs

MaxMara

Missoni


Kurv Magazine – Nomads of Mongolia

Lovely story told with rich furs and frosty colors. Models Zaya, Min Young, Gwen and Kim Kook play nomadic Mongolian girls, with amazing fur collections. The styling, done by Donald Lawrence, also included touches of crocodile, and an amazing jewelry piece on display on the first page. Photographed by Melissa Rodwell.


Craig McDean for Another Magazine

Fantastic images, love every detail. Craig McDean is incredible. This editorial is from the September 2008 issue of Another. Styled by Marie Amalie Sauve, featuring models Amanda Laine, Bridget Hall, Guinevere van Seenus, Han Hye Jin, Jessica Stam,  Kinga Rajzak, Missy Rayder, Siri Tollerod, Suvi Koponen, Taryn Davidson, and Tasha Tilberg. Dreamy, or trippy actually, this pictorial is like a world from the mind of an artist gone mad. Every shot can be an art piece on its own, I would actually love to decorate my walls with these. Look at the detail of the jacket in the fifth image down, amazing.


Runway Notes Spring/Summer 2012 – Midriff Bearing

If the bright lady-like trends of the spring aren’t for you, maybe you’ll like this tough girl look that’s popping up at many of the contemporary runway shows, the bare midriff. These aren’t the eighties neon midriff-bearing outfits, but black and white sleek urban looks, that we love.

Fashion Icon – Annie Lennox

Annie Lennox is a great example of a strong woman who does what she thinks is right and who conquered the world with confidence and sheer talent. This season, with the popularity of menswear-inspired womenswear, Lennox is the perfect fashion muse to look to. The current trend of tuxedo jackets is something she has been doing since the eighties. Recently she has turned all her attention to activism, like her SING charity witch raises funds for HIV/AIDS education and treatment. She is also not the only Lennox in the fashion world anymore, her daughter Tali Lennox is now modeling and has already been in a Burberry campaign.

Anne Hathaway in Interview Magazine

Anne Hathaway is playing a darker role than usual in this Interview Magazine editorial, perhaps she is preparing us for her jump into the very dark character of Catwoman. The shoot was photographed by Mert and Marcus. I love the lace and the dark angel theme, the images are absolutely beautiful.


Zycie in Zink Magazine

Editorial titled “Zycie” from the May 2011 issue of Zink Magazine. Model Weronika Gawrys shot by Cristian Di Stefano. The mood of the shoot is so dreamy, I love the surreal feel of the reflective shot. Kudos to stylist Alegna Merlino Seyer, I want all these pieces in my closet, now.


Luisa Bianchin for Marie Claire Italia

Another great fall editorial with a gorgeous outdoor setting. I love when the background images work so well with the styling and the model. Model Luisa Bianchin, shot by Thomas Krappitz, styled by fashion editor, Monika Kropfitsch. The looks include pieces by Yves Saint Laurent, Fendi and Max Mara.


Pierre Dal Corso for Zink Magazine

Pierre Dal Corso, a French photographer, is known for provocative images and for really utilizing color in his work. I fell in love when I saw the image with the red coat. The colors are classic, but the styling is very contemporary. This pictorial was featured in the 2010 Holiday issue of Zink Magazine. The model is Natallia K, the styling was done by Sophie Clauzel.


Strict – Interview Magazine

Lovely, dark, bondage-inspired pictorial shot by Mert and Marcus for the September 2011 issue of Interview Magazine, styled by Karl Templer. Models Candice Swanepoel, Saskia de Brauw, Anais Pouliot, Zuzanna Bijoch, and Emily Baker are captivating and the images might just inspire some bondage themselves.


Another Art Book

AnOther Magazine has released the third and final edition of Another Art Book. The art books feature images from the archives of AnOther Magazine, all of them from artistic projects commissioned for the pages of the magazine. The books include works by Ernesto Caivano, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Hans Peter Feldmann, Urs Fischer, Yayoi Kusama, Damien Hirst, Yoshitomo Nara, and Keith Tyson. It’s a fantastic collection of iconic images from the art and fashion worlds.




Kim Noorda for Marie Claire Italia

Great editorial to kick off the fall season, makes me want to bundle up with hot chocolate. Model Kim Noorda, shot by Rennio Maifredi, styled by Laura Seganti, for the September 2011 issue of Marie Claire Italia. The editorial is titled “Il Fascino del Grigio”.
