For AnOther Magazine‘s twenty-fifth issue, Jefferson Hack, the founder of Dazed Publishing Group, has tapped renowned Belgian stylist Olivier Rizzo as the guest editor of the British culture and fashion biannual. Centering on the ideas of travel and transformation, Rizzo brought a rich texture, wit, and sense of performance to his three shoots with photographers Willy Vanderperre (whose images are pictured here) and Alasdair McLellan. “Guest-editing the well of AnOther Magazine was fantastic,” Rizzo told Style.com. “Jefferson, [creative director] David James, and I have a long-standing, close relationship in the magazine, where the mutual respect and support leads to total creative freedom.” For the cover, he styled actress Cate Blanchett in the midst of a decadent night garden, channeling the theatricality of new-wave Berlin. Hailing from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Rizzo has some pretty serious styling cred: He’s done Prada’s shows since 2006, as well as the runways of Jil Sander and Louis Vuitton, and the campaigns for Raf Simons and Dior. Furthermore, he’s known for working with photographers such as Paolo Roversi, Steven Meisel, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Craig McDean, and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for publications such as Vogue Italia, W, i-D, Fantastic Man, Love, and Vogue Hommes International. Take a sneak peek at Rizzo’s AnOther spreads, which debut exclusively on Style.com, and check out the full issue when it hits newsstands on September 12.
There are a plethora of adjectives one could use to describe Missoni’s ad campaigns, but ordinary is not one of them. Last season, the house shot models in archival looks against classical interiors, and for Fall ’13, Missoni has sent us a simultaneously serene and eccentric short by Alasdair McLellan. The photographer (who also lensed the campaign images, below) captures Stella Tennant striking some pretty quirky poses on the rocky coast of Cornwall. Giggles ensue when Paul Sculfor shows up wearing the men’s collection (although, we must admit, he appears more suave than silly), and, all in all, the shoot looks like it was a good bit of fun. Catch Stella’s moves—and Missoni’s winter wares—above.
Rag & Bone’s Spring ’13 campaign may have featured polished Alasdair McLellan-lensed images of Kate Moss, but that doesn’t mean designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have gone all glossy on us. Today, Rag & Bone revives its DIY Project for the rag & bone/JEAN line. Having originated in 2011, the experimental ads have previously starred the likes of Miranda Kerr, Karolina Kurkova, and Candice Swanepoel (just to name a few), each of whom were given a digital camera, a bag of rag & bone/ JEAN clothes, and free range to shoot and wear whatever they pleased.
“We think [the DIY Project] is a unique way to show the styles of these cool girls, and it also gives people the opportunity to see their respective personalities and experiences,” says Neville. This season, the designers offer a DIY double whammy, having asked both Camille Rowe (above) and Poppy Delevingne (below) to document their rag & bone/JEAN experiences. “I shot my campaign in Mustique, where I was with my boyfriend, sister and friends for New Year’s. I also took some photos in London, which is where my home and heart lie. The final part was taken by my boyfriend in the fields of West Sussex,” said Delevingne. French-born, New York-based Rowe also had her boyfriend snap some images, which show the model in her Soho loft. “I think he’s a pretty talented photographer,” says Wainwright. The girls’ (and their boyfriends’) Spring ’13 DIY handiwork debuts here, exclusively on Style.com.
Spring 2013 marks Missoni’s sixtieth anniversary, and to celebrate the milestone, the Italian house looks to the future while remembering its history. For starters, Missoni enlisted photographer Alasdair McLellan and stylist Vanessa Reid to create an array of artful Spring ads. Based on “paintings of the past,” the campaign consists of both still images and a serene film, which, aptly titled “A Zig-Zag in Time,” mixes looks from Missoni’s hologram-inspired Spring ’13 and pieces from the house’s archive of colorful graphic knits. Why tease us with discontinued vintage treasures, you ask? Because, come May 2013, Missoni will reissue the featured styles, all of which will be available at flagship stores worldwide. Take a walk down memory lane (and a peek at the Spring’s youthful wares) with Missoni’s film, which debuts on Style.com (above).
After racking up an impressive lot of Spring ’13 campaigns (Versace and Givenchy among them) and countless covers last year, Kate Moss (who celebrated her thirty-ninth birthday last week) shows no signs of slowing. Today marks a double whammy for the model: The Internet’s abuzz about her Tim Walker-lensed cover and spread for Love magazine’s ninth issue (her ensembles include a stretched tank top, which she wears in a bathtub, a bouquet of strategically placed flowers, and not much else). On the other end of the spectrum, Rag & Bone has released its Spring ’13 images, which, shot by Alasdair McLellan, feature a fresh-faced (and fully clothed) Moss perched on a park bench. The model’s partnership with Rag & Bone began last season, when she was shot by Craig McDean in North London for the brand’s first-ever ad campaign. This time around, she posed in Southrop, Gloucestershire, which just happens to be the same Cotswolds town where she married Kills rocker Jamie Hince in 2011.”We…thought it would be an interesting contrast to follow up [our first campaign] in a remote English village, which Kate happens to have an affinity for,” said Marcus Wainwright, who designs the range along with David Neville, in a press release. “It was also a fun play on our British heritage,” he added.
