Caroline Swolfs is a Brussels based fine jewelry designer. When discovering her work, one feels absorbed into her graceful universe, full of fluid poetry. Each pieces are as many drops of pure and simple elegance. Her concept is as clear as spring water: reinventing the droplet each season, a theme she holds so dear and masters so delicately.
Designer Gioia Seghers creates pieces which elevate the modern wardrobe with the exploration of refined fabrics and techniques that never cease to delight us. This month, she launched a limited linen capsule collection for our next summer holiday wardrobe. With fluid lines and tie closures, she celebrates the beauty and freshness of linen, inviting us to dream of hot summery escapes. We couldn’t be more pleased to contribute to her work by producing the visual campaign for this elegant collection.
I recently had the chance to get a glimpse of the world of Vogue through the eyes and words of editors and styling experts. The styling week programme at the Conde Nast College in London was an excellent additon to my previous training as an art director for fashion with Central Saint Martins a few months ago.
When working in the field of fashion photography, you quickly realise there is so much more to the job than just clicking on a button, or even selecting the right lighting, sets, poses and equipment. You need to understand brand management and visual communication, know the names in the industry and their stylistic identities. When creating visual stories for brands or media, it is a necessity to think about the underlying story – in other words, the art direction.
The trip to the London Fashion Week was not only the perfect occasion to emerge in the vibrant world of British fashion design but also to catch up with London’s cultural scene and well set-up exhibitions, such as the UK’s biggest ever staged retrospective of Guy Bourdin’s pioneering and influential fashion photography work.
Originally published in Philadelphia by the Curtis Publishing Company from 1946 to 1977, this magazine was promoting the glamour of travel to post-war sophisticated households. Thirty-seven years later, the Paris-based art direction studio, Atelier Franck Durand chose to relaunch Holiday magazine as a bi-annual oversized publication. And the quest for travel aesthetics resumes.
