Debuting exclusively here on Style.com, Stella McCartney’s Spring ad campaign stars Finnish model Suvi Koponen. Lensed in London by Mert and Marcus, the ads were styled by McCartney herself, who told us that her goal was to “capture the freshness and sensual side of summer.” The snaps juxtapose serene black-and-white photography against striking giant red lips, seasonal pomegranates, and berries. “I wanted to evoke a sense of lushness with the images of fruit bursting with life and love, while balancing that with a contrast in the directness of depicting Suvi simply in black and white,” McCartney explained. Barefaced and dressed in the daisy prints from McCartney’s Spring ’14 collection, Koponen—who also landed this month’s German Vogue cover—embodies the effortless, feminine spirit of Stella’s Spring woman.
Rising photographer Boo George has been on fashion’s radar for some time now: He’s long been championed by editors in his native United Kingdom, and shot one of his biggest supporters, Katie Grand (alongside Marc Jacobs, backstage at Louis Vuitton), for the third issue of Style.com/Print. Now, here in the U.S., W has signed on, too. George is the winner of its first annual The Shot competition, a partnership with the International Center for Photography. In celebration of his win, images from George’s knitwear story from the September issue of W are now on sale at Artsy. If you’ve ever pasted editorial pages on your bedroom walls—and happen to find yourself with a low four-figure sum to spare—a George can be yours. Shots of Suvi Koponen, Meghan Collison, Irina Kravchenko, and Juliana Schurig, styled by Edward Enninful, are all available, in limited edition, beginning today; the September issue of W will appear on newsstands Thursday.
Sarah Burton cast quite a spell on editors at her Fall show back in March with her collection of frothy, organza dresses and ostrich feather coats topped off with mirrored Plexiglas visors. And at long last, McQueen fans can finally get their hands on those visors today at the label’s stores and online. To showcase the collection, the designer enlisted David Sims to shoot the house’s Fall ’12 ad campaign, starring model Suvi Koponen. Here, Style.com gets the exclusive first look at the Fall ad campaign video before it launches on AlexanderMcQueen.com later this week.
For its first time ever, Pringle of Scotland enlisted David Benjamin Sherry, who has shot for the likes of i-D, Dazed & Confused, and Another Man, to photograph its Spring ’12 campaign. Sherry also joined Kati Nescher and Suvi Koponen in front of the lens as one of the models for the menswear campaign. Style.com has exclusive behind-the-scenes footage (above) of the group at work in Switzerland’s Verzasca Valley, with Nescher and Koponen striking a pose against the rocks in Alistair Carr’s asymmetrical-print knits and layered dresses.

Supreme’s Fall 2009 show package hit our desks today—the first of the season— and it shows absolutely no signs of economy-induced restraint. In keeping with one of Spring’s key trends, the harem pant-heavy Marrakech Express, the agency captured Suvi, Behati , Hanne, and the rest of its genetically gifted crew in various states of undress and packaged the images in an ornate, gold and royal purple box that’s sure to catch the eye of any casting agent with a Scheherezade
