Vogue Paris Collections Automne-Hiver 2015

From the Vogue Paris web site...

Au programme de ce guide des tendances: les défilés de New York, Londres, Milan et Paris revus à travers une sélection de près de 2000 looks et 1500 accessoires. À découvrir en kiosque dès aujourd'hui.

"Nouveaux "Sésame couvre-toi" : des volumes cocons, des textures moelleuses, un bien-être plus quotidien, voire plus sportif", écrit Emmanuelle Alt, rédactrice en chef de Vogue Paris, dans l’édito du supplément Vogue Collections automne-hiver 2014-2015. Entre effets de textures et jeux de volumes, le climat général des nouvelles collections se veut protecteur. Une mode plus sérieuse, moins exubérante, à mi-chemin entre esprit sportswear et inspirations couture, d'où surgissent pourtant quelques collections aux accents Sixties, hommage aux icônes d'une autre époque, de Jean Shrimpton à Jane Birkin. Manteaux XXL, seconde peau, capes et ponchos... Autant de tendances à retrouver dans ce guide essentiel, à découvrir en kiosque dès aujourd'hui.

Vogue Collections charts the trends we're backing, as spotted by Vogue Paris editors runway-side in New York, London, Milan and Paris, with the 2,000 looks and 1,500 accessories that you need to know about. Out today.

"The motto for Fall/Winter 2014 is 'Keep it under wraps', with cocoon-like volumes, soft-to-the-touch textures, feel good everyday wear and a sportier mood," writes Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt, in her Vogue Collections Fall/Winter 2014-2015 editorial. From texture effects to plays on volume, the mood for next season is protective. This is more serious, less exuberant fashion, a half-way house between sportswear and couture with a few Sixties references thrown into the mix, in a style tribute to icons of another era, from Jean Shrimpton to Jane Birkin. With oversized coats, body con, capes, and ponchos all coming up, discover the trends you need to know about in our essential guide.

On newsstands April 22.

Vogue Paris May 2014: Sophie Marceau

From the Vogue Paris web site...

Une rencontre inspirante avec Sophie Marceau photographiée par Mario Testino pour inaugurer ce mois de mai dédié au 7ème art. En kiosque le 29 avril.

"Mai est le mois des actrices. Que vaudrait le Festival de Cannes sans l'envolée d'une robe, l'allure époustouflante d'une star à la montée des marches? En couverture de ce numéro, Sophie Marceau, LA star hexagonale, n°1 dans les suffrages, ce mois-ci à l'affiche du film de Lisa Azuelos "Une Rencontre", l'histoire d'un coup de foudre entre fantasme et réalité.", écrit Emmanuelle Alt, rédactrice en chef de Vogue Paris, dans l'édito de ce numéro de mai. Une édition étoilée menée par Sophie Marceau, intime sous l'objectif de Mario Testino et la plume du philosophe Vincent Cespedes. Les robes de la couture virevoltent en mouvement avec les Twins, deux danseurs français ayant marqué les chorégraphies de Beyoncé de leurs steps aériens, les carats dansent sous les feux de la rampe et les experts L'Oréal Paris livrent tous leurs conseils beauté pour se voir ouvrir les portes de ce Cannes confidentiel. Avant que ne s'ouvre ce 67ème Festival du cinéma, il est toujours temps de prendre la route pour s'offrir un week-end chic et parfaire son bronzage sous les rayons des plus beaux endroits du monde, bien protégée par le bon indice et le maillot adéquats. Pour ainsi se façonner un destin solaire à l'instar des égéries de ce numéro: Sophie Marceau, Gia Coppola ou l'iconique Jackie Kennedy-Onassis.

Photographed by Mario Testino, we meet French actress Sophie Marceau on the cover of the May issue, on sale April 29.

"May is a month for actresses. What would the Cannes Film Festival be without flowing gowns and stunning stars walking the red carpet? French film star par excellence Sophie Marceau covers this issue, currently on the big screen in Lisa Azuelos' Quantum Love, a love story on the cusp of fantasy and reality," writes Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt, in her May editorial. Sophie Marceau leads a star-studded issue, seen through the lens of Mario Testino and beautifully drawn by writer Vincent Cespedes. Couture gowns swirl around Les Twins — the light-footed French dance duo on tour with Beyoncé, diamonds sparkle in the spotlight and the experts from L'Oréal Paris share their beauty tips, as they take us backstage at Cannes. And before hitting the 67th Film Festival itself, we squeeze in a weekend in the sun in some of the most beautiful sun traps in the world, to show you how to catch those early rays safely, complete with the swimwear to best show off your glow. The future is bright and sunny: look to Sophie Marceau, Gia Coppola and the iconic Jackie Kennedy Onassis for inspiration this season.

Vogue Paris: Pin Ups

Vogue Paris: Pin Ups
By Paul Kolyer

Joe McKenna has had a stellar career and styled for Vogue Paris many times! The April issue pairs him with David Sims for "Pin Ups."

The mood is young, and the layout looks new with borders of bright color, and colored rectangles layered under the photos. Sims shows his masterful hand at color and black-and-white! I really like his color work lately, his Jil Sander campaign {men also] has beautiful colors!

A fave new model of mine, Binx steals the show! Binx in Céline!, perhaps the most photographed collection of the season? Lovely photo of her in intense makeup, please try blue eye shadow girls! Love her zebra barrette, she reminds me of Annabella from Bow Wow Wow!

McKenna includes some strong newer designers like J.W. Anderson, Yang Li, and Jacquemus. Paco Rabanne's pink overalls are featured in one photo. This legendary house is being revived by Julien Dossena, he's on the right track with this spring collection, I wish him well!

The last photo of Binx in a Nike jersey and Céline skirt is very "model off duty," she's the fashion girl next door, without the uptight attitude. This feeling starts out the editorial in the first picture, black-and-white, the smiling girl, very laid back {literally} and nonchalant! Saint Laurent of course, but thankfully these girls are not your typical "Pin Ups."

Vogue Paris April 2014: Cameron Russell

From the Vogue Paris web site...

Cap sur Miami avec Cameron Russell, un top engagé sublimé par l'œil de Mario Testino en couverture de cette édition audacieuse. En kiosque le 26 mars. "Les beaux jours arrivent. Cet avant-goût de l'été dans l'air colore et dope les pages de Vogue ce mois-ci. La mode a ainsi embarqué pour South Beach Miami. Hâlés par les U.V sous un soleil précoce, les tops photographiés par Mario Testino dans la série "Miami Heat" ont la peau couleur caramel et l'allurée libérée, conquérante", écrit Emmanuelle Alt, rédactrice en chef de Vogue Paris, dans l'édito du numéro d'avril 2014. En couverture, le top Cameron Russell continue son engagement pris au TED en 2012 et s'affranchit de la simple image pour faire entendre sa voix. Une rencontre organisée à New York au début de la Fashion Week automne-hiver 2014-2015 et qui s'est poursuivie sous les feux de la Floride. Des clichés vibrants photographiés par Mario Testino et capturant cette Jungle Fever sous les traits de Cameron ou de Malaika Firth. L'énergie magnétique de cette série innerve aussi la beauté, avec Karlie Kloss en trainer de haute volée, la musique avec le dernier disque d'Emmanuelle Seigner en écoute, ou encore les robes pleines d'audace de Riccardo Tisci, posant ici avec ses amis de toujours. Les filles en vogue s'évadent déjà vers le grand bleu avec la série Miss Vogue ou les grandes étendues nomades, quand les jolies têtes blondes du Vogue Enfants attendent les beaux jours dans leurs belles robes blanches romantiques. Un doux parfum de printemps, en kiosque le 26 mars.

Vogue Paris heads to Miami with model activist Cameron Russell this month, and a bold cover by Mario Testino. Available March 26. "Here comes the sun. Spring brightens the pages of Vogue Paris this month as fashion heads for South Beach Miami, where Mario Testino captured sun-kissed girls under the early summer sun, for the Miami Heat editorial. With their caramel skin, these are free, conquering women," writes Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt in her April 2014 editorial. Cover girl Cameron Russell continues the commitment to challenging discrimination and promoting healthy body image that she started with her TED talk in 2012, turning to imagery to make her voice heard. A meeting organized for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014-2015 is followed by the bright lights of Florida, as Mario Testino captures Cameron alongside Malaika Firth in the vibrant "Jungle Fever" editorial. A magnetic energy runs through the magazine this month, in our beauty editorial featuring Karlie Kloss as a top-flight personal trainer, through to the latest album from Emmanuelle Seigner and the audacious work of Riccardo Tisci, who poses for us with a clutch of his oldest friends. The models of the moment are already heading for the ocean in the "Miss Vogue" spread, along with the little ones in the Vogue Enfants supplement, who can't wait for summer to look as pretty as a picture in their white sundresses. Fresh fashion on a light Spring breeze, available March 26.

IWTBAA Love Note: Anastasia Barbieri

IWTBAA Love Note: Anastasia Barbieri
By Paul Kolyer

Anastasia Barbieri, that name, so chic. A Russian/Italian countess or a prima ballerina? I was intrigued of course, the mastheads; redactrice at large for Vogue Paris, fashion director for Vogue Hommes International. I remember a first glimpse, in a photo when Carine Roitfeld took over Vogue Paris! Halcyon days! The chic French brunettes, and the blonde (also a fave) Julia von Boehm. Anastasia's personal style is relaxed and simple, but always well-tailored. So different from the flashy editors but not monastic black either. Slim men's suits in neutrals, unbuttoned blouses, and Chloé-esque day dressing.

Anastasia is a poetic realist, her work is mostly single girls or boys in relaxed offhand moments where their personalities shine through. Casual and real, they are caught in private thoughts and personal rituals. The subject forgets you're watching and doesn't pose for you, they are lost in the day to day and just happen to look amazing, for themselves, a personal style, no fashion victims here.

I shunned men's fashion magazines for quite a while and only recently took to Vogue Hommes when Carine, Emmanuelle, and Anastasia began styling for it. They contrasted and complemented each other in Vogue Paris and Vogue Hommes in a similar way, their men were totally their own like the girls. As I look at Vogue Hommes Spring/Summer 2010 with Emmanuelle's fantastic Kate Moss in black-and-white by Mario Sorrenti on the cover, the styling is classic for each editor. Kate mostly nude on a beautiful beach by Sorrenti and Alt, and a David Sims photo shoot with Alt's model styled like a modern day Elvis. Carine is all decadent with lounging boys, torsos exposed, fallen on luxe pillows and fabrics, like Rudolf Nureyev. The "virtuoso bodies" by Demarchelier. Anastasia styles a model who looks like Basquiat in the latest menswear, so effortless and put together, I really feel like it's Jean-Michel, as he urinates against a wall in a Calvin Klein jacket. She knows how women want to see men look, real and masculine, accessible and sexy. They make it seem easy and and don't try too hard yet look amazing, it's hard to do!

In the latest issue of Vogue Hommes, Anastasia Barbieri styles beautiful photos by Jeff Burton. She just worked with him on the Cerruti 1881 S/S 2014 campaign. For the spread "Le Damné" or "The Damned," Burton's photos are quiet, subtle and subdued with naturalistically lit interiors. Again a single model, in his own ambience, as we watch he breathes for some other air, not for us....

 "a vague melancholy, like invisible scent,
  in these rooms, a lover was here.
  not now, in the past, from day to night waiting for the future,
  doomed to remember.
  a mirror to see her approaching, the mirror was here, and will be again.
  faint movement in the air, is someone there?
  should we dress for dinner? i'll wait, i know you're coming, never today.
  then tomorrow arrives with the sun through a window and always fades
  while I wait here alone inside myself, only the damned remain."
