Facing by Naq Lee | Frida Gustavsson, Natasha Poly, Anja Rubik, Abbey Lee Kershaw

Facing by Naq Lee is dedicated to all model lovers out there. A simple concept of shooting a model’s face for a couple of seconds, played to Lucy Rose’s Night Bus, make up this entire video. Shot during the Spring/Summer 2012 fashion weeks, the video features 26 models with a good mix of up-and-comers and regulars of the modeling scene but do not be disheartened if you find your favourite missing.

In order of appearance: Frida Gustavsson, Natasha Poly, Anja Rubik, Aymeline Valade, Kelly Mittendorf, Anais Pouliot, Tanya Dziahileva, Aline Weber, Kasia Struss, Milagros Scholl, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Valerija Kelava, Antonia Wesseloh, Sigrid Agren, Alana Zimmer, Anabela Belikova, Karolina Kurkova, Sara Blomqvist, Isabeli Fontana, Hyoni Kang, Iekeliene Stange, Catherine McNeil, Daphne Groeneveld, Jessica Stam, Jules Mordovets and Bruna Tenorio.

Just something to ogle at for a few minutes; which is your favourite?

H&M Winter 2011 Menswear & Womenswear Lookbook

H&M Winter 2011 Menswear & Womenswear Lookbook, Andreas Sjödin, Frida Gustavsson, Jeremy Dufour

H&M presents their H&M Winter 2011 Menswear & Womenswear Lookbook just in time for the opening of their first Southeast Asian store in Singapore on September 3rd. Shot by Andreas Sjödin, the H&M Winter 2011 Menswear & Womenswear Lookbook features Frida Gustavsson and Jeremy Dufour.

H&M Winter 2011 Womenswear features loose silhouettes and sculptural shapes with a focus on colour-blocking; think strong colours against black or white basics. On the other hand, H&M Winter 2011 Menswear displays strong tailored silhouettes in classic neutral colours like grey, camel and blue shades, accessorised with lace-up boots, suspenders, bow ties and clear glasses. Check out the rest of the H&M Winter 2011 Menswear & Womenswear Lookbook below.

Prada Fall/Winter 2011/2012 Ad Campaign Video

Prada just released the accompanying Prada Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign video. Nothing special here and I like it that way; letting the collection speak for itself. The slightly sensual video showcased closeups of key accessories and garments in the same setting as the ad campaign images and was purely commercial. On a side-note, I absolutely love the makeup done by Pat McGrath. The Prada Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign video stars Frida Gustavsson, Kelly Mittendorf, Ondria Hardin, Antonia Wesseloh, Julia Zimmer and Dorte Limkilde.

View the Prada Fall/Winter 2011/2012 Ad Campaign including 7 closeup images of shoes.

The Prada Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign features Frida Gustavsson, Kelly Mittendorf, Ondria Hardin, Antonia Wesseloh, Julia Zimmer, Dorte Limkilde, shot by Steven Meisel. If the actual collection looked difficult to follow on the runway with so many various elements being introduced, the Prada Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign certainly brought out the gist and air of the collection.

Prints that gave colour-blocking a new twist; drop-waisted belts on coat dresses and jackets; the use of plastic paillettes instead of metal paillettes or sequins; dome-shaped python coats with fur; put that on a simple 20’s flapper-inspired silhouette, together with Mary Janes with thick buckles, stunning eyewear like that of ski googles and an array of clutches, and you have one gorgeous collection. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous.
