editorialesque » paolo anchisi for dansk

shot by chris craymer,  paolo anchisi of ford models appears for issue no. 25 of dansk. styled by toby grimditch, the direction of style represented in this series of images is a bit more raw edged than most of the other polished spreads we’ve seen this season. with alluring use of natural light & natrual elements, prada platformed sneakers & stripes are given more depth. i love that the styling seen here is a combination of over the top design concepts & bold patterns with minimalist sensibility. paolo is one of my favorite male models & here he demonstrates his ability through photographic performance.

sigrid agren for bon

shot by david vasiljevic, sigrid agren, whom is now represented by ford models, appears for the summer/spring 2011 issue of bon. clad in spring’s soft neutrals & showing more skin than expected; styling & fashion editing for the cover was done tom van dorp & beautifully. i’ve always loved sigrid & am expecting much more of her on the fashion scene through different bookings in the coming year. with her recent agency hop over to ford, im sure that more opportunities await her. already a wildly successful female in fashion, sigrid is a campaign regular appearing for chanel chance, just cavalli, prada & yves saint laurent in the last year. currently ranking at no. 15 within fashion’s top 50 models- dont sleep on sigrid, put her on your radar.

rose cordero for arise

as one of the most stunning covers i’ve seen upon entering the new year, rose cordero of ford models appears radiantly on the cover of arise magazine. shot by john-paul pietrus, with styling by sabrina henry, cordero killed this cover entirely. with perfected cosmetic accents, beautiful bold color & immaculate bone structure- this is what a fashion cover looks like. as an african publication of style & culture, arise magazine has been in existence since their soft launch in october of 2008. with this cover, the arise team demonstrates apt ability at breaking new ground. as a publication solely focused on highlighting the achievements & happenings in africa, i applaud the team that has produced this cover. rose is one of my favorite editorial models & im always very inspired by her photographic performance. of dominican decent, rose hit the scene in 2009 & is just coming off an extremely successful runway show season. rose is a developing force as a new model, working in fashion.

valerija kelava for jil sander navy, spring

in allowing fashion to become more wide spread & available to all, many designer labels are resorting to other opportunities to produce moderately priced goods on the heels of retailers like H&M, zara & forever 21. the jil sander solution to this issue is the release of jil sander navy, which is a lower-priced capsule collection that is an additional component to the jil sander empire. through the lens of david sims, the debut campaign for the capsule collection stars ford model, valerija kelava. seen in black & white with a bold red backdrop, the image showcases that the price tag won’t affect the creative worth of the collection through advertising. while i personally associate hard core simplicity with the jil sander label, the image speaks to me, stylistically. thought not completely polished, there is a feel of organized chaos that i love with this campaign. great execution.
