Featured Article: Vogue Ukraine 2013 Covers Recap


Canadian Ukrainian top catwalker Daria Werbowy landed the honor to be the first cover star of Vogue Ukraine‘s premiere issue that was published earlier this year. The 30 year old was photographed in Prada Spring Summer 2013 by Steven Pan on the cover. Another Ukrainians who graced their covers this year were singer-composer Eugene Hütz (he shared the cover slot with Estonian model Katlin Aas); Berdyansk born actress and former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko; and Kiev born catwalker Irina Kravchenko.

Zuzanna Bijoch landed the second cover slot of the year, the Polish catwalker was photographed by Jeff Bark for the cover. Fellow catwalkers who graced the covers of Vogue Ukraine this year were former Victoria’s Secret Angel from Czech Republic, Karolina Kurkova (shot by Hans Feurer); Canadian born Meghan Collison (by Olivier Zahm); American runway veteran Guinevere Van Seenus (by Cuneyt Akeroglu); Kincardine born doll faced stunner Jessica Stam—our fave cover of the year! (by Chad Pitman); and French regal Marie Piovesan (by Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello).

Even though Vogue Ukraine is still trying to find their identity for their covers, but we are quite happy with the results. And hopefully they’ll be better in 2014.

Longchamp Spring Summer 2014 Ad Campaign


Alexa Chung is Longchamp’s latest woman in motion. The French leather goods firm tapped the vivacious “It” girl to front its spring campaign — the first volley in a year’s worth of events to mark the 20th anniversary of its best-selling Le Pliage bag.

Spots showing Chung frolicking around Saint-Tropez — occasionally behind the wheel of a vintage Fiat convertible with unusual wicker seats — are to break in select February magazines, including Taiwanese Elle and American and British Vogue.

Max Vadukul shot the print ads with Alexis Roche as stylist, while Jean-François Julien did a short film that will make its debut during New York Fashion Week on social media and as digital advertising.

Marie-Sabine Leclercq, head of global communications, noted more than 20 percent of Longchamp’s media spend now goes to digital. Its latest mini-movie, titled “Bigger Than Life” and starring model Coco Rocha, has logged more than a million views online. (source)

One of China’s leading fashion photographers, Yin Chao photographed two cover slots for his hometown Numéro this year. He worked with model Abigaile Ge for the fantastic January cover, and he also collaborated with Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi for the black and white June/July issue.
