alexander mcqueen fall/winter campaign

September 29, 2009





this campaign, like most things alexander mcqueen, is a complete orgiastic dream. mcqueen is such a sensational master of presentation…the cracked mirrors, the sultry stares, and the structure of those dresses and that top…are you kidding me? i am obsessed with all things voluminous, draped and overbearing, and would wear everything pictured until it died the death of something that was loved just too, too much.

i’ll be honest, though…i am in deep, deep love with the photo for the men’s collection. it’s part daniel day-lewis in “there will be blood”/part “sweeney todd,” the stage version. its an updated 19th century look that conjures images of burberry, but with an australian rural roughness that’s so sexy i can’t stand it. i love when designers put thought into conceptualizing their campaigns for men. i could care less about campaigns that display male models because they’ve fit bodies. but this, this i could look at all day long.

coca rocha/korean vogue

September 29, 2009









this “legend of fall” editorial in korean vogue is incredible. i find the asian aesthetic (in its variance in culture and region) very alluring. there’s a darkness, an edge to the look as a whole, but it’s illuminated by immense bursts of color: brightly hued flowers, a striking red lip, and a lightness to the face. so detailed, and always focused on movement, balance (or imbalance), and the total ambience of the photo. coco rocha looks stunning in these photos, and, although i’ve not been a huge fan of her darker locks, her hair is styled brilliantly.
