hannelore knuts for akris, spring

belgian female model, hannelore knuts appears for the akris spring campaign this season & appears doll faced & stiff. representing the akris brand perfectly, the poise & overall image shot for this season showscases structure, architectual lines & clean concepts. the starck white is well balanced with hannelore’s jet black hair & well balanced with a classic red lip. replacing daphne guinness for akris last season, hannelore is represented by ford models. at the front end of the millenium, knuts rose to model power appearing three times in a row for italian vogue & has since shot numerous editorials & walked for many designers internationally. you might recognize her  as one of the models that was cast alongside natasha poly for H&M’s lanvin collection; through video as well as on the runway. a thoughtful image that is true to the brand’s aesthetic.

shu pei for vera wang, spring


represented by next models ny, chinese female model, shu pei, is the face of vera wang for the summer/spring 2011 season. seen here are images that were shot in promotion of the ready-to-wear collection, eyewear collection & bridal collections designed by vera wang. the images are fitting for the label & i love that vera wang, as a chinese/american womenswear designer, has opted to go with a chinese model. as popularly discussed in both writing & verbally during my weekly fashion report segment; the rising demand for luxury in asia is directly influencing the world of fashion. from oriental inspired collections for the house of louis vuitton, to the casting of more asian female models- it’s really a special time for ethnic models & designers alike. beautifully shot by carter smith, styling for the campaign was done by lori goldstein. a fitting campaign for the wang label.
