The first image from Alexander Wang’s cheeky Spring ’14 digital campaign broke today, and infused with humor, retro ambiance, and the designer’s signature breed of cool, the Steven Klein-lensed teaser shot has got everything—except clothes. The snap was staged in a bleak public restroom and features only the platform-clad feet of Anna Ewers and Zuzu Tadeushuk. The rest of their presumably Wang-dressed bodies are hiding behind the closed stall doors. “Since the spring-summer 2014 collection plays on the duality of naïveté and perverse explicitness in youth culture, we wanted to shoot the campaign in a very familiar environment most people grow up reminiscing about,” Wang told WWD. “I loved blurring the lines between censorship and humor.”
Madonna is aiming to start yet another revolution with her latest film, secretprojectrevolution. Co-directed by the pop legend and Steven Klein, the movie will serve as the launch of Madge’s Art For Freedom initiative, which aims to promote freedom of speech and expression. Created in collaboration with Vice Media and BitTorrent, the seventeen-minute short will be available for download on September 24 from bundles.bittorrent.com/madonnarevolution/, and because we know you were wondering, yes—M’s wardrobe for the cinematic uprising furthers her longstanding embrace of fishnets as pants.
Today, Alexander Wang released teaser images of his Steven Klein-lensed, Pascal Dangin-directed Spring ’13 campaign (above). Styled by Patti Wilson and starring Malgosia Bela (who, having also appeared in Miu Miu’s Spring ads, is painted primitively with white), the preview photographs are clean and minimal. So minimal, in fact, that as far as we can tell, they don’t include any clothes. They do, however, capture the severe urban-warrior feel of Wang’s futuristic Spring offerings. The full campaign will premiere in spring issues of CR Fashion Book, Love, and Interview magazine.
Joan Smalls and Saskia de Brauw aren’t the only models playing gymnast these days—the male models for Calvin Klein Bold mounted the parallel bars in just their underwear for the brand’s new Steven Klein-lensed campaign.
“I have always liked gymnastics and I give the people that do it a lot of credit because they make it look so easy, but it’s actually really hard,” Matthew Terry, the label’s 20-year-old new underwear model, tells Style.com. “It was one heck of a workout doing some of the poses they wanted.”
Here, catch Terry and his sexy cohorts, Arran Sly, Chris Garavaglia, and Myles Crosby, in action in these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from the Joshua Tree shoot. An unreleased image of Terry from the campaign is below.
For Made in Polaroid, a new exhibit of—yes—Polaroids opening at Milk Studios today, fashion photographers like Patrick Demarchelier and Steven Klein, designers like Phillip Lim and Nicola Formichetti, and actors including James Franco all created images using the company’s GL 10 instant, mobile printer. There’s over 50 works of art in the Phillips de Pury & Company exhibition, all of which will be auctioned to benefit Free Arts New York, which offers children and families arts education and mentoring programs.
Klein, for his part, contributed Alejandro, a photograph of Lady Gaga (incidentally, the creative director of Polaroid). Klein also lensed the famously racy music video for the Gaga song of the same name. Above, your exclusive first look at Alejandro. It may benefit children, but it’s certainly not for kids.
Made in Polaroid runs through September 13 at Milk Studios, 450 W. 15th St., NYC. For more info, visit www.phillipsdepury.com.
