DIS Magazine introduces us to the world’s first planking-inspired fashion editorial showcasing Fall 2011 looks from the likes of Alexander Wang, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Missoni and Christopher Kane among others. Aptly titled Plank Girl, the fashion spread stars Ruth Gruca, Rachel Lord, Courtney Malick, Analisa Teachworth and Emilie Waterhouse planking at various locations, shot by David Toro and styled by Khalid Al Gharaballi.
This planking-inspired editorial is probably more tongue-in-cheek than anything to do with fashion. Well, take a look below and amuse yourself.

The final Uniqlo +J Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign has been unveiled. After just three short years, Uniqlo +J collaboration, which Jil Sander herself collaborated in, will be coming to an end with this final Fall/Winter 2011 collection. The Uniqlo +J Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign features Arizona Muse and Bastiaan Van Gaalen, shot by David Sims.
Uniqlo +J has been about luxury minimalist basic wear showcasing the oh-so-familiar Jil Sander aesthetic at affordable price points. Fans should not be disheartened as there is still the relatively new Jil Sander Navy diffusion line to look forward to. Into its second collection come this fall, Jil Sander Navy is a lower-priced line that is targeted at the more casual and younger customer, priced at $125 for a shirt to $795 for a coat. Not too bad I would say. Quite unlike Uniqlo +J, where basic wear is the main focus and the colours more muted, Jil Sander Navy will be your go-to place if you are looking for affordable Jil Sander. It will essentially be what Marc By Marc Jacobs is to Marc Jacobs or what T By Alexander Wang is to Alexander Wang; or another money-making avenue if you will.

Three more images of the Alexander Wang Fall 2011 ad campaign have just been released. Raquel Zimmermann stars in more sexy, tough and feisty poses shot by veteran creative director Fabien Baron in a derelict factory and styled by Karl Templer.
Preview of the Alexander Wang Fall 2011 ad campaign, followed by a promotional event promoting the campaign video and then the release of the rest of the ad campaign images. That seems to be the drill here. Periodic releases for maximum publicity. Redundant or effective? What do you think?
Watch the Alexander Wang Fall 2011 ad campaign video.
Raquel Zimmermann stars in the Alexander Wang Fall 2011 ad campaign video, shot by Fabien Baron, set in an abandoned warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Alexander Wang ran a 3-day promotional campaign that ended tonight where the video premiered. This campaign coincided with the release of the first Alexander Wang Fall 2011 ad campaign image, starring Raquel Zimmermann as well. The image was so much better. The video was just simply too dark which made the clothes barely visible; not good. Slightly off the mark for me there.
