Steven Meisel: Role Play

15.12.2014 | Fashion | BY:

It’s not often that a fashion photographer wields enough influence to create an issue of Vogue featuring only black models; neither is it very common for just one person to photograph each and every cover of Vogue Italia for the past 20 years. But then, Steven Meisel’s extraordinary passion and talent set him up for an illustrious career from his early days as a fashion illustrator.

International auction house Phillips is launching a travelling selling exhibition of Meisel’s work. Role-play has already visited Paris, and will be arriving at 30 Berkeley Square in London from 16 December to 11 January next year, before heading to New York.

The show features 25 images that capture Meisel’s most notable contributions to fashion photography, including an image from the 1990s, when Meisel was instrumental in welcoming the grunge aesthetic into mainstream fashion. He has since concluded that the image is one of his favourite pictures, as, in his words, it ‘captured a real cultural moment of a music scene and a fashion scene fusing together to create a new look.’

Meisel has undoubtedly become one of the most significant fashion photographers working today and this exhibition is a brilliant opportunity to view his work as it is intended to be seen.

Steven Meisel: Role Play opens tomorrow, 16 December till 11 January 2015. Located at Phillips 30 Berkeley Square London.

Prada Resort 2015

03.11.2014 | Fashion | BY:

Prada introduces new faces Adrienne Juliger, Ine Neefs and Moya Mardy in their eerie Resort 2015 campaign. Shot by Steven Meisel, and with hair and make up from Guido Palau and Pat McGrath, the result is a enigmatic monochrome portrait of the modern Prada woman.

The collection itself focuses on the new shapes; silhouettes made from short jackets, boxy skirts, pleated trousers and belted dresses, all with a slight nod to the 70’s. The fine details, such as decorative stitching over the seams of each garment, shoe and bag are clear to see in the photography as well as the tension building short video.

Candy Florale

23.04.2014 | Beauty | BY:

Blended by perfumer Daniela Andrier, under the creative direction of Miuccia Prada, Candy Florale is the latest fragrance from the Italian Fashion House. The idea for the new scent stems from an imaginary flower, one created for Candy herself. The flower had to be wondrous and sophisticated, simply unique. Its lush blossom contains an uplifting mix of floral notes, embodying the many facets of Candy’s character, while the warmth and honey accents reflect Candy’s sensual essence.

Candy is Léa Seydoux. The beautiful French actor stars in the Prada Candy Florale’s advertising campaign, where we find her in both film and print visuals created for Prada by Steven Meisel. He captures Candy in a dreamlike state, where the frangrance is lifting her up, defying gravity.

Prada World

19.06.2012 | Blog | BY:

Prada’s new A/W 12 campaign dropped into Twin’s inbox this week. Specifically, two images shot by Steven Meisel who unfailingly serves up polished images to match Prada’s peerless vision.

Not afraid to carve out her own niche, this time Miuccia’s models inhabit a futuristic vision that glitches forward by way of Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange. Those geometric print belted trouser suits that were introduced to us a few months ago are worn with dark-eyed stares, in what Prada calls a “futuristic enclosure” of Tetris like orange and white carpeted steps.

By creating her own video game “level” complete with model avatars, Prada has engendered her own world. A virtual reality,  in which we can play along with her glorious, unabashed fashion intellectualism. We’re sure her  printed suits with flared cropped pants, dip dyed tresses and rubber galoshes are set to be in our fashion future.

Shake It Up

02.09.2011 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Fashion is a serious business and campaign adverts are usually no laughing matter. Luckily, Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz is a man unafraid to raise a smile. Lanvin’s new fall 2011 campaign video is the cheesiest fashion party out there and we want in.

Shot my Steven Meisel and starring the boogie-licious Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann dancing to Pitbull’s I Know You Want Me, they pull off the kind of dance moves only a supermodel wearing Lanvin could. But it’s the designer himself’s entrance at the end that stops the show, proving funny is the new fabulous in fashion.
