For Fenton designer Dana Lorenz’s Spring ’13 ad campaign, it was model Eliza Cummings or bust. “We had to have her,” Lorenz tells Style.com. “She flew in for one day to NYC specifically to walk Marc Jacobs, and we made it work to shoot her in the few hours before her call time.” Here, Style.com has the exclusive first look at the campaign (lensed by Sharif Hamza), featuring Fenton’s newest candylike, oversized baubles—a departure from some of her more gothic turns in past seasons . “I really wanted to convey a sense of strength and color this season,” the designer explains of the collection, highlighting the geometric Shinde pendant. “I looked to the oversized, structured jewelry of Ambaji Shinde for Harry Winston from the fifties and sixties and the geometric, illusion-esque formica works from Richard Artschwager.” Look out for the collection on her newly launched e-commerce site FentonUSA.com this spring.
Douglas Perrett—the casting guru behind COACD and its addictive model blog—spends fashion week casting shows like Richard Geller and N. Hoolywood. But he finds time, somehow, to put out his own nineties-throwback zine, Male Model Madness. (In its own words: “Wedged under the industry’s mattress since 2006.”) Photographers like Thomas Dozol, Sharif Hamza, and Sebastian Kim all contribute to the latest issue, which includes both professional runway walkers and street-cast dudes like Wolfe (above), whom Kim shot with some friends in Tompkins Square Park. Perrett and co-founders Kathy Lo and David Covell celebrate the mag’s third issue at Blind Barber in the East Village tonight, where in celebration of Fashion’s Night Out, stylists will be giving free trims. And starting at 9, they’ll be auctioning off dates with a few choice male models to the highest bidder. Gentlemen and ladies, to your paddles.
In case any further proof was needed that cleavage is back, here’s LOVE‘s first video for its iPad app, debuting any day now from the iTunes store, alongside its fourth issue, “The Gorgeous Issue” (out now). Katie Grand styled Elle Macpherson in Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci, and Macpherson’s own line of lingerie. Macpherson channels sixties sweater girls in a hip-shaking short shot by Sharif Hamza, who’s lensed editorials for Interview and international editions of Vogue, and videos for Dior Homme and Dazed + Confused. Aside from reminding us all why Elle’s now and forever “The Body,” it’s also one of the better arguments we’ve seen for the rat’s-nest bouffant. Check out the exclusive debut, below.
