If the Fall ’13 campaigns and Spring ’14 runways have left you craving more surprise appearances from nineties supers (Christy Turlington starred in Fall ads for Calvin Klein Underwear, Jason Wu, and Prada; Naomi Campbell strutted her stuff down DVF’s Spring runway; Kate Moss was printed across Giles Deacon’s Spring dresses, etc.), look no further than Katie Grand’s latest Hogan short for your next fix. To showcase her Spring ’14 collaboration with the label (the third installment of the ongoing series), Grand asked Dan Jackson to direct a film featuring Linda Evangelista and Stephanie Seymour, as well as Joan Smalls, Sam Rollinson, Edie Campbell, Georgia May Jagger, Liu Wen, and more, dancing about in the new collection. As for the Spring range, it boasts soft leather jackets and accessories kissed with Grand’s signature Pop aesthetic. The lineup, which Grand describes as “slick, sexy, straight-to-the-point practicality,” includes stark white creepers, polka-dot pouches, slim stilettos, and duffel bags and iPhone cases embellished with the collaboration’s heart motif—a nod to Grand’s Love magazine. See it all in the flick’s exclusive debut, above.
Fashion’s love affair with nineties supermodel Christy Turlington never really ended, but in recent months, the 44-year-old has resurfaced in all her leggy, glossy glory. Calvin Klein, a label Turlington began working with in the eighties, tapped her to be the face of its Fall ’13 underwear campaign in May. That was followed by a megawatt June/July Harper’s Bazaar cover, and today we can report that Jason Wu has made her the star of his Inez & Vinoodh–lensed Fall ’13 ads, one of which debuts exclusively above. “Inez, Vinoodh, and I loved the concept of capturing a moment in what we imagine to be a glimpse into a supermodel’s life,” said Wu, who notably featured another nineties bombshell—Stephanie Seymour—in his Spring ’13 campaign. The Fall ads, Wu explained, are a continuation of the story he began to tell with his Spring snaps: “The idea is to create the next chapter through a set of instantly iconic images that depict a larger-than-life personality in a New York institution.”
While Seymour’s campaign was shot at uptown (in every sense of the word) French eatery La Grenouille, Turlington posed at Mr. Chow on East 57th Street. Perched atop a black booth, she dons a saucy scarlet Fall frock, which, we should add, is complemented by an untouched order of lobster on the table. When asked about his affinity for famous nineties faces, Wu said, “I gravitate toward personalities and will continue to work with women who bring their own sense of style to my designs.” After seeing Turlington’s shots, we’re hoping he stays the course and turns out chapter three for Spring ’14.
Fall 2013 marks Love magazine’s Katie Grand’s second collaborative capsule for Hogan. Titled Gang, the range includes everything from iPhone cases to skate shoes, and features lots and lots of zebra print, simply because, as Grand explains, “It felt right and looked great.” In true Grand style, the collection debuts via a playful film, which stars Love-ettes like Cara Delevingne, Tallulah Harlech, Stephanie Seymour, and Ondria Hardin. Shot by Daniel Jackson, the short shows the ladies bouncing around in Katie Grand x Hogan’s wares to the tune “I Want Candy,” sung by Miss Delevingne herself. “Cara kept saying how she wanted to do something with me that wasn’t modeling, so when I wanted to do something special with the video, I thought it was ideal to get her to sing the soundtrack,” Grand told Style.com.
