W Magazine September 2012 | Kristen McMenamy by Tim Walker

W Magazine September 2012, Kristen McMenamy, Tim Walker, Dame Of Thrones, Jacob K

The W Magazine September 2012 issue features a Game Of Thrones inspired editorial, aptly titled Dame Of Thrones, rivaling that of LOVE Magazine’s Downton Abbey shoot. The magic duo of model Kristen McMenamy and photographer Tim Walker combine once again to produce a masterful piece of subtle extravagance.

The background scenery reminds me of the editorial starring Tilda Swinton by Tim Walker for W Magazine August 2011, which incidentally was also styled by Jacob K who nails this one. The styling here was just simply immaculate; I mean how do you find the most perfect pieces for an editorial like this?

Check out the rest of the W Magazine September 2012 Dame Of Thrones editorial featuring Kristen McMenamy by Tim Walker below.

LOVE Magazine Issue #7 | Kristen McMenamy by Tim Walker

Love Magazine Issue #7, Kristen McMenamy, Tim Walker, Katie Grand

LOVE Magazine Issue #7 is out in stores now and what caught my eye was this awe-inspiring editorial spread featuring Kristen McMenamy. Titled The Origin Of Monsters, Kristen McMenamy is shot by the extravagant Tim Walker with the fantastical use of larger than life insects as props. This peculiar theme is then further brought to life with deconstruction styling done by Katie Grand, making this one mysterious and eerie editorial. Check out the rest of the LOVE MAgazine Issue #7 editorial featuring Kristen McMenamy by Tim Walker below.

And if you are guessing who is on the cover or should I say covers –which I will not be featuring here as they did not excite me as much as this editorial– it is none other than Linda Evangelista who reportedly “cost LOVE Magazine a fortune”. The only other cover features Lara Stone and Kate Moss together. Check out both covers on the LOVE Magazine Facebook page.

Tilda Swinton | W Magazine August 2011

Tilda Swinton, W Magazine

Veteran actress Tilda Swinton covers the latest W Magazine August 2011 issue and also stars in an editorial spread titled Planet Tilda. Shot by Tim Walker and styled by Jacob Kjeldgaard, the theme was imagined by Tilda Swinton herself and her close aide Jerry Stafford, inspired by Arnold Genthe’s portraits of Greta Garbo, Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal, and the work of French artist Claude Cahun who is known for toying with the concepts of gender and sexuality in the 1920’s.

Tilda Swinton is pictured in several androgynous looks, some of which were set against a landscape reminiscent of the middle ages while the others featured a simple white background like that of the cover. Tilda Swinton wore mostly monochrome outfits which fitted a mood that was serene and placid; I’m sure this is one of the best W Magazine covers and editorials to date. Agreed?

Tilda Swinton wears a Salvatore Ferragamo silk velvet tuxedo jacket and silk blouse; Acne silk velvet pants with belt; Patricia Underwood for Chris Benz hat and Sermoneta gloves on the cover.

Mulberry Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 Ad Campaign & Collection

Tati Cotliar and Julia Saner stars in the latest Mulberry Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign shot by Tim Walker. I love the creative direction in this one; strong theme and very cohesive images that brought out the few stronger looks from the Mulberry Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 collection.

And just like most brands these days, Mulberry has a video ad campaign -also shot by Tim Walker- to go along with these images.

As much as I like this ad campaign, the same cannot be said for the actual collection. Sorry Emma Hill. The pieces would do well as separates but as whole outfits; it just needs a little more oomph. It was just not excitable but that’s what you would expect from a heritage brand. Mulberry fans would love it though.

The collection delved into the rich English heritage inspired by the likes of Roald Dahl‘s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Much emphasis was placed on outerwear which could bode well for sales together with updates on the Mulberry family of bags. Check out the update on the Tillie and the all-new Polly Push Lock tote as well as the new Carter Double Handle bag, now with a double postman’s lock closure. I think they’re going to be hits. All bags are available now at the Mulberry online store and Net-A-Porter. Here are some looks from the Mulberry Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 collection.
