Oh, so my Aunt Genie (Francis) was on Oprah today. (HELLO!!!!!!!!!!)
Always the epitome of grace and wisdom, I miss her dearly and am so excited to hop to Cali this spring to visit my Frakes family (and to check in with the NEXT LA crew along with my dearest Left Coasters—namely Danny and David Roberts—with whom I am collaborating on several projects in the pipeline).
Proenza Schouler Spring 2011 Ad Campaign
I first came to really appreciate Willy’s work through his perennial collaborative relationship with Raf Simmons (and, ergo, the house of Jil Sander). Over the course of the past few months, my love affair with his subtle, captivating technique has been rekindled with the release of his exquisite The Gentlewoman beauty editorial (featuring Abbey Lee in Peter Phillips’ Chanel maquillage), the Roversi-esque Vogue China December 2010 cover and editorial “Freezing Allure” (starring an alluringly meditative Lara Stone), the vibrant V Magazine editorial (photographed at my dear friends at Spring Studios’ unbeatable space in London and featuring a newly-brunette Natasha Poly) and his stark January 2011 W Magazine editorial “Spring Awakening” (co-starring my fellow NEXT Special Bookings board member Tali Lennox along with Lindsey Wixson, Kinga Rajzak and a gaggle of other gorgeous girls).
2011 may still be young, but Willy has been serisouly killing it in the advertising department and has already lent his wistful, discerning lens to the spring 2011 Prada Men, Dior Homme, Proenza Schouler, Jil Sander and Givenchy “Le Bouquet Absolu” fragrance campaigns.
I am literally beside myself with the sheer beauty and lightness of the Proenza campaign in particular—thanks, of course, to Marie’s styling and an ace team—which lent the images their dreamy, ethereal tenor. Yannick’s angelic hair together with Julia and Melissa’s come-hither chemistry and contemplative dispositions are the perfect foils to the day-glo spring/summer wares. Five stars, yo.
UPDATED: Check out my dear friend Danny Roberts’ stupendous speed painting of the campaign: PS: Have you ever seen the stop-motion rendition that Danny did of me back in 2009? It was such an huge honor; I am still taken aback beyond words. (Igor + André)
Please check out my dear friend Danny Roberts’ exquisitely poignant video capturing the Rachel Antonoff Spring 2011 presentation. It was a true honor to style my fourth consecutive season alongside Rachel… and of course to spend time working with Danny and David always warms the soul.
(Remembering Rachel at Igor + André)
Serving as stylist for Rachel’s collection is always one of my absolute favorite side projects; this season I am particularly thrilled for our playful shoe collaboration with American heritage brand, Bass — rather aptly entitled Bass Loves RA!
(Because really, it’s virtually impossible not to love RA!)
It goes without saying that Chloë’s Miu Miu Spring 2010 ensemble worn to the MoCA 30th anniversary is forsooth one of my favorite looks of the season (as evidenced by the togs I “wore” in this Danny Roberts portrait benefitting Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary). The cherry on top? Chloë happens to be disrobing from the same Opening Ceremony private label snuggly fleece-lined coat that I presently am wearing as I tumble!
