Well it was about time Sonia Rykiel came with a plan about its future. After the first collection of the new Creative Director, Geraldo da Conceiçao, the FW 2013-14 ad campaign was presented a few weeks ago. Fresh, playful, art inspired images shot by Mert & Marcus, starring Sam Rollinson, currently featured in models.com Hotlist.
Geppetto and Betty, Betty and Geppetto. A true love story, a relationship to last.
Pavlina’s Geppeto and my Betty were photographed together last week for the new “Ippolito loves Geppetto” campaign and their lives were bound for ever. For those who don’t already know the concept, the collection consists of cat and dog collars and the cutest small pochettes, in order to remind you to always carry with you a bag, treats and an atropine injection for emergencies. 30 % of the profits go straight to Anim.A.L Friends Society, for the dogs that suffer from Kalazar.
Fun times with photographer Ioanna Chatziandreou and the rest of the team at Ippolito’s showroom downtown.
“Sophistication and raw sensuality come together in Prada’s fall/winter campaign, shot by Steven Meisel in New York.
A stellar ensemble of fresh new faces such as Amanda Murphy and Kristine Froseth star alongside iconic, era-defining stars like Christy Turlington and Freja Beha. They inhabit seductively stark scenes, the pivotal characters in an enigmatic portrait of femininity.
Gazing from scuffed leather chairs or industrial stools, with oil slick hair and hyper real complexions, the models magnetically command our attention. When the camera moves closer, the effect intensifies. The models gaze through gleaming eyewear, their insouciant expressions countering the high polish of the frames.
Stark lighting, cloud-grey walls and naked floorboards are the severe canvas for a rich palette of autumnal hues, exquisite furs and glistening leather. This intoxicating mix of the raw and the refined captures the duality at the heart of this new campaign, and Prada’s new take on femininity”.
“Inspired by the irreverent world of 60s New Wave cinema, three actors, Christoph Waltz, Ben Whishaw and Ezra Miller, are the protagonists in a drama of wit and enigma.
Renowned photographer David Sims captures the stars in a stylised interior populated with geometric furniture, designed by OMA for Knoll, borrowed from ‘The Ideal House’ conceived by OMA for the Prada Fall/Winter 2013 fashion show. The characters wait, caught in anticipation within a set of clashing references, colors and emotion.
Each actor plays a distinct role, creating a trio of characters who bring their individual points of view and style to the collection. Christoph Waltz’s character evokes a studied sense of elegance, Ben Whishaw presents an alternative carefree charm and Ezra Miller brings a youthful air of mystery.
For Fall/Winter 2013 Prada introduces a duality of wit and style at the heart of the modern man’s attitude to dressing”.
“They are people I love and who love me. It’s about family. Something that is difficult to find in today’s world. It’s about real people, only taking the best of their personalities, with no effort”. Riccardo Tisci

Sasha Pivovarova started her career in 2005 when she opened the fall Prada show in Milan. Since then the Russian top model and Prada House have fallen in fashion love.
This year they celebrate their 10th campaign cooperation with the resort 2013 campaign, shot by Steven Meisel in a 70s mood.
Monday morning October 8th was a girl thing: Milk & Honey invited athenian girls, myself included, to be featured in their new campaign -coming up the following days. All of us had the chance to choose a favourite Milk&Honey outfit for the story, so I was really excited to slip into a couple of beautiful pants and silk tops. The photographer was no other than George Malekakis and a video is on its way as well, by Ioanna Chatziandreou.
Special thanks to Milk & Honey girls, Morfe for the make up, Ioanna and Mirella Alexou for grabbing my camera and creating backstage memorabilia. A few photos from the shooting used as a teaser for what’s coming up next!
Gary Oldman, Garrett Hedlund, Jamie Bell and Willem Dafoe are the stars of Prada’s Menswear Fall 2012-13 campaign, in a series of three-quarter length portraits. Prada chose stylish men off screen as well as on that apart from currently iconic screen characters, they are also influential icons of fashion.
being a great opponent of winter and cold weather you may imagine how i feel those rainy, cloudy, freezing days of the most depressing month of the year. i could easily describe my status with the word “hibernation”. seeing today the new adv campaign of Bottega Veneta ss2012 collection, my heart gamboled and for a moment i sensed the cool breeze of the sea on a melting day of july, i groped for my sunglasses, tasted salt and heared an imperceptible gentle splash of the water near me, that gave me this urge to clap my hands and cheer for artist and photographer Jack Pierson for such a direct, emotionally deep and narrative picture of his work.
humidity and 3 °C make me emotionally vulnerable, don’t mind me.
Guinevere Van Seenus is the main face of Miu Miu resort campaign, inspired by the aristocratic and noble portraits of Renaissance and shot by David Sims in London. Taffeta, transparency, lace, balloon sleeves, are enriched with jewelry: brass chokers and earrings with multi colored crystals and pearls.
when i feel like a twelve-year-old and play with my fashion-junkie friends “which top model you’d like to be” -if i was to reborn as a top model that is, a dream highly likely to come true one day- i always think of Raquel Zimmermann and we all agree. Raquel Zimmermann is one of THE top toppest of top models ev-ah.
Having been working for over a decade with the most important people of the fashion industry, the Brazilian top model is still taking our breaths away. Born 28 years ago in Rio Grande do Sul, Raquel is a skateboard rider and a quitar player as well. She belongs in the great family of Viva Models Agency in Paris, measures 84-61-88 and is the dearest model of the iconic photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.
The last three months Raquel has appeared in editorials for Vogue US, Vogue UK,Vogue Paris, W and was the cover girl of Vogue Brazil and Korean W, too. She has this magnificent talent to always transform herself, and that’s another reason why she features in five F/W 2011-12 advertising campaigns -Lanvin, Jimmy Choo, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Juicy Couture. Furthermore, Raquel recently left the Top50 rank of models.com to enter 16th at the Top Icons list of all times.

A sensuous playroom is the setting for the new Prada womenswear campaign, shot by Steven Meisel. It reveals a new laid back approach to elegance in a relaxed atmosphere laced with sophisticated fashion knowing.
This campaign exemplifies an-anything-goes attitude to fashion maximalism but is delivered with a unique sense of grace and casualness. innocence meets refinement in this timeless tableau. The delicate sensuality expressed by the fresh-faced models is at-odds with the sophisticated fashion on display: tromp l’oeil boots in grown-up velvet masquerade as girlish knee-highs, oversized coquettish lapels are paneled in fur and python bags are cradled like cute teddy bears. It’s a dressing room of contemporary desire disguised as a playroom of childhood dreams.
At its centre the models emit a youthful luminosity and nonchalant sophistication, creatively capturing the subtle duality at the heart of this new collection.
