editorialesque » sessilee lopez for elle sweden

shot by marcus ohlsson, the always amazing, sessilee lopez appears for the pages of elle sweden. represented by supreme models, lopez appears in bold tones & gucci accessories throughout the spread. one thing i’ve always loved of sessilee is her bone structure;  i remember seeing her for the first time in italian vogue & was just staring at the face thinking, ‘who is that girl?’. born in philidelphia & of dominican & portugese ethnicity, sessilee bum rushed the fashion scene in 2004 when she moved to new york to pursue a career in modeling. that year proved to be powerful for lopez, ultimately seeing her land a fragrance contract for CK, appear for a david sims shot campaign for bennetton & runway castings for zac posen, emporio armani, karl lagerfeld & vivienne westwood. in 2005, steven meisel photographed sessilee for italian vogue, which earned her a solo cover within a series that was shared with model icons liya kebede & naomi campbell. from there sessilee’s future as a cover girl was solidified & she continues to be one of the most unforgettable faces working in fashion today. with her recent agency hop from major models to supreme, im already noticing a larger presence of sessilee & am loving every minute of it. here she demonstrates her skill of photographic performance. you might have also noticed that sessilee is plastered all over H&M locations ’round the globe as their face for spring. as one of my favorite girls in the game- sessilee slays editorial.

fall prêt-à-porter, paris: jean paul gaultier

as a testament to his creative reputation, jean paul gaultier is a leader of the pack with an individualized perception of vision & fashion theatricality. this season, gaultier plays with the concept of age & interestingly so. as the world of fashion tethers between age appropriate styling & models on the runway as 15yrs. old- gaultiers takes it to the next level with his granny chic Fw11 collection. models frida gustavsson, karlie kloss, alana zimmer, sessilee lopez, karolina kurkova, jourdan dunn, coco rocha & joan smalls were amonst the cast  that walked the runway with grey bee hive wigs clad in gaudy print, chic coats, plaid & suede. overall, the gauliter collection pokes fun while truly representing more modestly aged designs. i would’ve like to see something more fresh & something a bit more refined- in terms of vision, the collection & direction are translated perfectly.

fall collections new york: z spoke by zac posen

with models sessilee lopez, coco rocha, tao okamoto & crystal renn seen throughout the FW11 lookbook for zac posen’s z spoke collection, i must admit; i was more caught up with the cast then i was the clothing. black, white, grey, deep teal & a single shot of pink are seen for the collections palette as each model is seen equipped with heavy shadow & a dark lip. particular attention was drawn to the collections accessories, more specifically the handbags within this set. after the initial excitement a of seeing some of our favorite model faces, the collection is one of solid direction & clearly represented style signatures which are very well developed through the designs of zac posen. the z spoke collection is the sister collection to the zac posen main line, which is now shown in paris. the z spoke collection allows the posen name to represent a piece of itself in it’s native of america, more accurately in new york. i love the feel that is generated through each of these looks- i get a greater sense of luxury & rich glamour, the deep tones; it’s refined style done very well. a strong collection; sexy & chic.
