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.
If you’ve ever wondered what the ultimate L.A. glamour girl look likes, Juicy Couture’s found your answer in model Candice Swanepoel. The Victoria’s Secret Angel stars in the brand’s latest Zoe Cassavetes-directed film short for its Spring 2013 collection. Swanepoel prances around blowing bubbles and writing her name on a mirror in lipstick, all while looking fabulous in everything from polka-dot cutoff shorts to a floral jumpsuit. Watch the video, which premiered tonight at the Juicy Couture presentation, here on Style.com. Plus, check out all the looks from the Spring 2013 collection and our full review here.
Many people did a double take when Prabal Gurung’s Spring ’12 campaign, featuring a barely recognizable Candice Swanepoel, made the rounds earlier this week. Gurung’s go-to team, stylist Tiina Laakkonen and makeup artist Hannah Murray, transformed the South African model for the sensual shoot with photographer Daniel Jackson, showing off the designer’s Nobuyoshi Araki-inspired collection. Here, an exclusive Style.com behind-the-scenes look at how it happened.
Candice Swanepoel’s tightrope walk between capital-F fashion and Victoria’s Secret stardom continues. The gorgeous South African is the latest model to take the reins (and the camera) for Rag & Bone’s ongoing DIY campaign, joining the ranks of Lily Aldridge, Sasha Pivovarova, Miranda Kerr, Edita Vilkeviciute, and Abbey Lee Kershaw. For her assignment, Swanepoel shot in Brazil and Bora Bora—frequent destinations for editorial favorites, perhaps, but less-visited locales for many of the rest of us. The brand is offering this consolation, at least: It’ll seem a little balmier in Manhattan when the campaign, which launches digitally tomorrow, hits Rag & Bone’s Houston Street billboard this week.
“To walk the Victoria’s Secret show is obviously every American girl’s dream. I feel pretty lucky to have crossed that one off my bucket list at such a young age,” 19-year-old Karlie Kloss (above) said yesterday after her Angel debut, at the VS after-party at the Dream Downtown. “I got to dance with Adam Levine and Kanye, and wear a pair of wings. Onstage, I felt on top of the world, it was wild.” She wasn’t the only catwalk veteran to make her VS debut last night. Joining her—both on the catwalk and at the party—were Karmen Pedaru, Caroline Brasch Nielsen, Sui He, and Joan Smalls. Naturally, all the established Angels made winged appearances, too. Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, and Anne Vyalitsina have all been around the VS block many times before. But according to Anne V. (who high-fived her boyfriend, Adam Levine, during his Maroon 5 set during the show), the spectacular ups the ante annually—and demands that the girls do the same. “This year was particularly competitive…like getting our bodies ready and really getting into the workouts,” she told Style.com. Those long hours in the gym paid off. “Everybody looked over-the-top amazing,” she gushed.
