Featured Article: Vogue Italia 2012 Covers Recap


If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. That’s how we put the collaboration between photographer Steven Meisel and Vogue Italia that has been going strong for more than 20 years and still counting.

Sometimes they created magic on the covers (i.e the April issue with models Aaron Vernon, Chrystal Copland, Ethan James, Lyle Lodwick, Thairine Garcia and Sojourner Morell; September issue with Carolyn Murphy, and December with Vanessa Axente and Marlon Teixeira), sometimes they created something that’s so dull even though they tapped a great cover star (we are looking at you Mrs. Isabella Rossellini). And they certainly really knows how to liven up the hype, as the current IT model Kate Upton landed one of the most coveted cover slots in the world of fashion publication.

Vogue Italia combined top famous names in modeling industry with the rising newbies as their 2012 cover girls. They mixed runway regulars and veterans Caroline Trentini, Daria Strokous, Joan Smalls, Linda Evangelista, Jamie Bochert, Meghan Collison with promising new crop of girls such as Laura Kampman, Mackenzie Drazan, and Vanessa Axente (she got the honor to be featured twice last year!).

Vogue Italia always came up with something different from the other Vogue editions, and we respect that. Especially the minimalist text on the cover. Franca Sozzani already made history this year as she chose Fei Fei Sun as the magazine’s first ever Asian cover girl! We are looking forward to see what Franca will bring in 2013.

Read our recap of the magazine’s 2011 line up, here and 2010 line up, here. Don’t forget to share which cover is your favourite from Vogue Italia in the comment box below.

Calvin Klein Underwear Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign




UPDATED APRIL 27th 2013: Added new images featuring Arran Sly and Julija Steponaviciute by Daniel Jackson.

Below are the quote via WWD:

Calvin Klein Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of PVH Corp., will run the first Super Bowl commercial in its history. The 30-second ad is slated to run at the end of the first quarter and will introduce Calvin Klein Concept, the latest offering from Calvin Klein Underwear. The provocative commercial depicts model Matthew Terry in a modern “man versus machine” creative inspired by the 360-degree seamless technology construction of the new underwear line. In other words, Terry flexes his muscles and shows off his great physique.

Shot in New York City, the video campaign, which aired on WWD.com Wednesday night, was conceived and directed by consulting creative director Fabien Baron of Baron + Baron, working with Klein’s in-house global marketing and ad agency.

“This is a significant milestone, and, as an iconic American designer brand, [we] are extremely proud to be able to debut the latest Calvin Klein Underwear campaign during the Super Bowl — the most watched television event annually in the U.S.,” said Tom Murry, president and chief executive of CKI.

The print campaign was shot by Steven Klein.

On game day, all of Calvin Klein’s official social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and YouTube, will be transformed with the new creative to support the product launch. Digital content will also be shared via Vine, Twitter’s new video-sharing app. Once it airs, it will also be included in Twitter’s #adscrimmage and YouTube’s Ad Blitz contests for the year’s best Super Bowl commercials voted by fans.

Following Super Bowl XLVII, spots will air on CBS and ESPN. Additional TV spots are slated for Europe, Asia and Mexico in the spring. The ads will also run in GQ, Esquire and Men’s Health and outdoor venues in the U.S., Mexico, Italy and Australia. Overall, the campaign will reach 19 markets across North America, Europe and Asia.
