Sam Rollinson stormed onto the scene in 2010, after Burberry cast her in its Fall ad campaign. Since, it’s been nothing but up for the model. Last season alone she walked in a total of sixty-two shows, and today we can reveal that Rollinson is the face of J Brand‘s Fall ’13 campaign. Shot by Craig McDean and styled by Karl Templer, the images (which debut here, above, and below) are sleek, severe, and pared down—allowing the label’s dark denim, leather jackets, and track pants, as well as Rollinson and, of course, her razor-sharp cheekbones, to pop. The model also stars in the campaign for the Little Black Jean collection—J Brand’s new range, which, launching this June, was created exclusively for Selfridges’ new Denim Studio. The Fall ’13 ads will hit magazines this August. Continue Reading “Rollinson Rising” »
For those not in the know, Belstaff was first launched back in 1924 and established itself as the go-to brand for waterproof sporting garments. Back in February, Belstaff’s new chief creative director, Martin Cooper (formerly at Burberry), debuted a re-energized look—a collection (heavily inspired by the machine age, when the wealthy all aimed to have motorbikes and motorcars) that strikes a balance between the label’s strong British heritage and modern sophistication. To show off the luxe offerings, the brand enlisted none other than Ewan McGregor to hop on a motorbike (he’s a lifelong motorbike rider himself), along with models Karmen Pedaru, Ymre Stiekema, Maud Weizen, Ben Hill, John Pearson, and Janis Ancens, for the Craig McDean-lensed campaign. “I started wearing Belstaff motorcycle jackets about ten years ago,” McGregor tells Style.com. “I feel like I’ve always known about them from photos of old motorcycle heroes and legends, as they are often wearing Belstaff.” Here, Style.com has a behind-the-scenes look at McGregor at work on the campaign shoot (styled by Karl Templer and creative-directed by Trey Laird), which took place at Lord March’s Goodwood estate in the U.K.—fittingly, the location of the annual Festival of Speed auto race.
You might have caught Alexander Wang’s Fall ’11 campaign in July, when he screened his ready-to-wear promotional video on the sides of buildings throughout Manhattan. For the Fabien Baron-directed, Karl Templer-styled campaign, Wang enlisted Raquel Zimmermann to show off his cool-girl collection in an abandoned Brooklyn grain factory from the twenties. Here, Style.com has the exclusive behind-the-scenes images from the shoot before they go live on AlexanderWang.com tomorrow. If you are hoping to get your hands on the fur puffer (like we are), you can find it and all of the looks on Wang’s e-commerce site.
Alexander Wang assembled a crack team for his first-ever women’s ready-to-wear campaign video for his Wall Street-inspired Fall collection, which premieres on his Web site and ours, among others, today. Craig McDean was behind the camera, Fabien Baron was in the creative director’s seat, and Karl Templer styled. Orlando Pita and Mark Carrasquillo did Abbey Lee Kershaw’s hair and makeup. The setting, too—a now deserted New York City hotel—is compelling. “We’re always striving to communicate the frame of mind behind the collection, whether it’s through our show or imagery, but this season we got to delve much deeper,” Wang told us. “And with the help of an incredibly gifted team—Abbey, Craig, Fabien, and Karl—my inspiration for Fall ’10 unfolds in a raw and visually arresting dreamscape.” It doesn’t look like Wall Street to us, but we’re with him re: “raw and visually arresting.” Enjoy.
This week, Alexander Wang launches his first ever video campaign (pictured), starring Abbey Lee Kershaw and lensed by Craig McDean. Karl Templer and Fabien Baron styled and creative-directed the spot, which will launch right here on Style.com this Wednesday at noon EST—so stay tuned. [WWD]
