"All Tomorrow’s Parties" - Stephen Meisel
do you ever see one random image in your dash which you immediately recognize from an editorial you, like, freaked out over / saved / tore out of a magazine / etc years ago and then have to obsessively google until you find the entire thing, yes, that just happened
OH MY GOD I always feel “sort of bad” just posting entire editorials (lazy blogger womp-womp) but this thing is SO DEAD ON THAT I CAN’T HELP MYSELF. The hair. The clothes. The colours. The old-weird-America-meets-60s-and-70s-California-pop-trash-kitsch vibes. The sportswear and streetwear mixed up with flouncy skirts and classy retro shapes. That neon orange bra or bikini or whatever that is which I need to get RIGHT NOW. I can’t.

AND TODAY IN 90’S EDITORIAL GOODNESS, we bring you more 90s-pop-feminism-influenced fashion-androgyny by which I mean “Stella Tennant and then some nakie models with messy hair,” plus the last time that neon opaque blue and yellow lipstick was a thing!
Previously: Arena Homme eds by Stevens Meisel & Klein, the Self Service archives, and more Arena Homme from ‘96. It’s okay if you go ahead and print it all out and paper your walls with it, ‘cuz I was thinking about that too.
[Via the TFS vintage magazines thread, which I could obviously spend weeks browsing.]
Over-the-top clashing 80s-Versace-esque styling, excessively flashy Chanel bling (why am I such a sucker for that?), and campy poses: do editorials get any more fun than this? Elle October 2011.
Karmen Pedaru by Fabien Baron for Interview. So, who wants to go to Beacon’s Closet with me and buy a bunch of ugly mismatched coloured things and shiny black lipstick and then run around looking like this always, do I have any volunteers, what do you mean no, what is wrong with you people
BUT EITHER WAY here’s the thing about re-posting editorials: I think I devote way too much time to trying to figure them out. Like, is that really Broadway in Brooklyn and why did I never think about the fact that using a wide-angle near the ground in that lot over by the Broadway G stop would be an awesome place to take photos, wait no those big white tank things in the background, that must be in Queens or LIC somewhere or elsewhere in Brooklyn where there’s el trains, and was he using a softbox or a ring flash, or is that somehow natural light, no probably a ring flash with that kind of fill right? And also doesn’t this somehow remind you of that Milla Jovovich editorial that I had to google weird things for 15 minutes (“Milla punk androgyny” “Milla skinhead 80s” “Milla Jovovich versace punk editorial 90s”) before finding it again BUT I DID because my bizarre memory for photographs I saw once three years ago somehow trumps all (like “did I remember to turn off the lights this morning OH GOD”) and also that gorgeous Mert and Marcus Red Hook ed? Seriously though that has to be a ring flash, right?
Either way, at the very least I think this glitter black nail polish thing needs to happen in my life pretty much now.
Missing fall clothes, wool, layers, earth tones, boots - and suddenly wanting a probably ill-advised bang trim. Tanga Moreau by Dancian for Marie Claire Italia August 2011.
Maybe I’m turning into a broken record here — this will, after all, be the second time I post overly enthusiastic posts about editorials by now-iconic photographers from Arena Homme in the 90’s, and it seems like every other post on this blog is now dominated by a crippling nostalgia for the decade of my youth — but like, kids, SERIOUSLY. Potentially questionable racial politics in some of the images aside, these are all pretty epic, especially those amazing cheesy effects on the Roversi ed. More, of course, after the jump — all images from Arena Homme FW1996, via the TFS fourms.
You know, that whole “let’s dress these models up like some concept of punk and take pseudo-gritty photos and then pat ourselves on the back for being so damn EDGY” thing should be old and cliche and problematic by now, BUT I STILL ALWAYS KIND OF LIKE IT. Besides, now I want a cropped plaid boxy lil’ blazer like that. Goddamnit. More at Test.
Hot damn, Crystal Renn (YES THANK YOU MORE EDS THAT ARE ABOUT CLOTHES/STYLING/PHOTOS AND NOT ‘OMG SHES LIKE A SIZE 8 WHAT A FATTIE’, CAN WE PLEASE DO THIS MORE OFTEN) and leather jackets and really creepy dolls. (Vogue Paris Aug 2010 — Photog ID anyone? Fashion Copious doesn’t know.)
Loving this ed with Ash Stymest from the April 2010 issue of Japanese streetwear magazine HuGe featuring clothing from Hysteric Glamour, not least of all because it’s basically what I aspired to as a teenager except I was far, far too well behaved (marching band and SAT tutor, anyone?) As a side note — can anyone ID the model with the Diane-Lane-in-Fabulous-Stains-hair/makeup/pout? (I think I’m in love.)
Obsessing over hair/wardrobe/makeup here. Amazon-flapper warrior women dressed in bits of old lampshades and fuzzy carpets and black lace gloves? Dark lipstick and more subtle smoky eye? Awesome. Though if anyone explain to me why this was done on location in, like, the middle of the mountains on a plain somewhere (did F Scott Fitzgerald get lost on vacation somewhere?) instead of in a dark bar or weird old mansion is beyond me. (Speaking of rad locations, somewhat incidentally — does anyone also know whatever happened with the Chanel ad that was filmed at Moto in BK a few months back? Really want to see that.) [via HM]
