PHOTOGRAPHY: “AUSTRALIA” BY MARK SEGAL

More often than not when a fashion shoot takes place within a natural environment, the photographer (or to be fair, the Art Director), doesn’t quite manage to capture that intrinsic synergy between the subject & their surroundings or show it within the final product, despite having fulfilled the creative brief & concept by producing a set of eye-catching images of this seasons finest. For me personally, that connection means everything.

Marc Segal marries Man (in this case Jarrod Scott) & Land (in this case his homeland Australia) so perfectly, that our slightly primitive & rather handsome model literally becomes one with the rugged landscape in the Australia editorial featured in the latest Vogue Hommes International, Spring/Summer 2014.

Love them or loathe them, Mert & Marcus with their signature over saturated style, will forever have a special place in my heart, so it’s no surprise that I nearly died from the brilliance radiating the three standout cover’s starring top models, Kate Moss, Natalia Vodianova (above) and Lara Stone for W Magazine’s March issue.

AD CAMPAIGN: LANVIN SPRING/SUMMER 2013 BY STEVEN MEISEL

I’m a firm believer that an Advertising Campaign should not only sell the brand’s aesthetic and the current collection, but also be a window into a world that you can only dream of being a part of. Sure enough, Lanvin’s Spring/Summer 2013 campaign lensed by Steven Meisel does all of that and more.

Check out the beautiful men’s and women’s campaigns here.

COVER: FRIDA GUSTAVSSON, MOA ÅBERG, THERES ALEXANDERSSON, OLIVER REMMETS ASKMAN, HANNA FRIDH & MABINTOU CESSAY BY CARL BENGTSSON, ELLE SWEDEN, FEBRUARY 2013

Hands down one of the best cover’s I have come across this year!

There’s a cause for celebration, (although I’m not sure what as my swedish is poor – 25 years ?) as photographer Carl Bengtsson captures models Frida Gustavsson, Hanna Fridh, Mabintou Ceesay, Moa Åberg, Theres Alexandersson and Olivia Remmets Askman, against a brilliant multicoloured paper floral backdrop for Elle Sweden’s February 2013 issue.

The above cover with Frida Gustavsson is faultless. I love the inclusion of the the red (Acne?) Biker jacket over the Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2013 gown. It frames the model and just lifts her away from the busy but beautiful set. Hats off to whoever designed it, it’s amazing and it’s actually something I would have done in the past.

Check out the other equally gorgeous covers here.
