Acne Studios has rarely met an out-of-the-box idea it hasn’t liked. So though for most labels, publishing its own limited-edition collection of rodeo-rider portraits from a mid-century physique photographer wouldn’t be the first order of business, here it is. And so last night, with its usual clutch of models in tow—Hanne Gaby Odiele, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Ji Hye Park, et al.—Acne launched Rodeo, a hardbound book of photos from the collection of New Yorker critic Vince Aletti. Must be something in the air lately. As Hedi Slimane’s latest editorial suggested: Cowboys—they’re a thing.
Bruce of Los Angeles, little-known except among physique-photo aficionados, has nevertheless been influential among later photographers. Aletti traced elements of his style in the work of Mapplethorpe, Herb Ritts, and Bruce Weber. (The similarities were in some cases so striking, you could probably have bylined the book Bruce of Los Weber.) “It’s clear that he’s looked at it and had some appreciation of this period of work,” Aletti said between tête-à-têtes with Fran Lebowitz last night. “And I’d imagine he knows [of] some other photographer named Bruce.”
Unlike much of the photographer’s oeuvre, these rodeo shots are naturalistic, of real guys (rather than models) in their own clothes (rather than nude). Of course, exceptions apply. In any case, Acne took the opportunity to create a little capsule collection of clothes around them, too, for those who prefer to wear, rather than page through, their vintage beefcake. There are T-shirts, glammy cowboy boots stitched with appliqués of cowboys, and the traffic-stopping shirt modeled last night by the label’s Louise du Toit, available at Acne shops now.
The winter conundrum: Keep warm or keep chic. Cold-weather-proof clothing is often the antithesis of fashionable, but December through March is not a lost cause. Take a cue from models-off-duty Frida Gustavsson and Jacquelyn Jablonski, who added a little something extra to their look with colorful printed scarves. Get their look with four of our favorite pieces from Isabel Marant, Givenchy, Jil Sander, and more, below.

Industry legend Michel Gaubert is one of the go-to DJs for the fashion set, spinning tunes for Chanel, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler, Gucci, and more. (He counted down his Top 10 runway soundtracks of the decade 2001-2011 here.) He was in the booth for Chanel’s Paris/Bombay Métiers d’Art show, and in between spinning tunes—including George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord,” John Lennon’s “Instant Karma!,” and David Lynch’s “Good Day Today” (Chanel shared his full playlist here)—he managed to record the show from his DJ’s-eye-view. Gaubert shared the video, below, and a few choice pics with Hintmag.

Gisele Bündchen may be an Angel, but right now, Brazilian authorities don’t think so. Bündchen is being criticized for her new Hope lingerie campaign, which has been called “sexist” and “stereotyped.” [Vogue U.K.]
Karl Lagerfeld has created a book, featuring models Bianca Balti and Jacquelyn Jablonski, for his third collaboration with Hogan. For his past projects with the brand, Lagerfeld made a movie and a photo exhibition. “This time I wanted something else because I hate to repeat myself,” Lagerfeld says. [WWD]
