FashionNew Alexander McQueen Ad Campaign: Artful or Cheesy?

The newest images for the fall 2011 Alexander McQueen campaign just popped up August 1st with model Raquel Zimmermann in the spotlight (literally).
 
Since the far-too-soon passing of Mr. McQueen, Sarah Burton has been doing an amazing job with one of the world’s leading fashion houses. The fashion is incredible wowing us season after season on the runway. The fall ad campaign, however, is another story.
 
 With graphic pops of color and a lack of realism that embodies a comic book turned action movie, I’m wondering if something seems a bit off. See for yourself:
 
 
 
 
Without adding any disrespect I’m just wondering . . . do you find these images to be a little like something you might see printed on a t-shirt in the mall?
 
Are the graphics a little too forced, or is the mystical drama in these shots simply part of the over-the-top beauty that the iconic McQueen line is all about?
 
Feel free to chime in!

FashionAmerican Lolita: Model Kristy Kaurova in Velour Magazine

In a style reminding me of a modern take on Lolita, Robert Harper photographed model Kristy Kaurova for an editorial in Velour Magazine for August 2011. I love the long flowing hair with a 50′s style twist, while the clothing has a definite 70′s influence. With a lean towards a young, Lolita-esque beauty, this shoot is one of my favorites of the summer. Take a look below for some of the top shots.

The bottle of Coca-Cola really gives an American feel, especially paired with bright 70′s style wedges and a light floral two-piece play suit! 

 An apple gives the feeling of innocence and youth. I love the rolled up white tee for an almost James Dean, 1950′s look.

 Super cute high waisted shorts and bow wedges!

A classic halter dress in a gingham print has got to be the ultimate in American style summer fashion. I love the flow and shape of this piece!

Seersucker being another classic American fabric, this playful jumper is perfectly crisp and fun! I really love the gingham bandana pairing.

ArtCurrently Obsessed: Niky Roehreke



I am constantly looking for new art inspirations for myself, as well as my tumblr, and Niky Roehreke’s work is my favorite so far. I had seen her work before, I own a Japanese Nylon that she did the cover art for, but had never really looked into her illustrations until a couple weeks ago. She is a master of incorporating typography and symmetry into her amazing pencil and watercolor pieces, making every work more captivating then the next.




 

Recently she was hired by WILD magazine to do some illustrations for London Fashion Week A/w 2011 collections, which are by far some of my favorites of her work. Check ‘em out below.
