Photographers Mert and Marcus may have outdone themselves in the Fall/Winter issue of Love Magazine. They shot 8 covers for the issue featuring Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning, Hailee Steinfeld, Nyasha Matonhodze, Lara Stone, Mariacarla Boscono, Kristen McMenamy, and Daphne Groeneveld. The styling is by Katie Grand, Arianne Phillips, and Panos Yiapanis. The issue is titled Super Natural, and it definitely has a fairy tale theme. The covers are beautiful and the editorial shots inside do not disappoint.
Very powerful and captivating editorial titled “Rive Gauche et Libre”, shot by Mert & Marcus (Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott) for Vogue Paris September 2010 issue. Featuring models Malgosia Bela, Daphne Groeneveld, Andrej Pejic, Josh Parkinson, and Lea T. Styled by Carine Roitfeld. The title translated is “Left Bank and Free”, “left bank” refers to the region of Paris that is a mecca for young artists, and “free” to the freedom from the confignment of traditional sexual roles in society. The editorial celebrates androgyny, the blurring of the line between what is feminine and masculine. The stand out pages to me were the ones featuring Daphne and Andrej. The images of Andrej from this spread have become almost iconic, the image with the rose is as recognizable as his very controversial Dossier ad, that caused such a stir.
I’ve been looking through the resort 2012 collections and I’m feeling thoroughly inspired. I love the satin trousers, the blazers, and I’m definitely going to post the best of the incredible gowns from these collections soon. Today, though I have to bring your attention to the Lanvin Resort 2012 lookbook, it is fantastic and can stand in for an editorial as is. Models Daphne Groeneveld and Kristina Salinovic exude glamour and fun, and make a gray staircase look like the chicest place to hang out, but Daphne really steals the show with her “Whip My Hair” action.
