Winter in the Northern Hemisphere doesn’t begin for another five weeks, but that’s not to say forecasts haven’t also begun in earnest. The National Weather Service spins its own winter predictions through its Hydrometeorological Prediction Center Winter Weather Desk (WWD, that’s right), which in name seem a bit fanciful when today’s high temperature will reach 66°F (19°C) in Manhattan. Regardless, a balmy New York autumn may well give way to the sort of steamy winter envisaged by photographer Sølve Sundsbø in this Vogue Italia novembre 2011 editorial featuring Julia Saner (Ford).
Jon Paul (Ford Men) features in an exclusive editorial on The Fashionisto by photographer Angela Hau and stylist Martin Waitt.
Interview November 2011 is more than a touch infatuated with teenagers — the cover story is an interview of 14-year-old Chloë Moretz by former child star Drew Barrymore. Also in the issue, photographer Gregory Harris surveys the de facto class of 2011, a precocious crop of teen and twentysomething actors, musicians, and the like. Thankfully Interview‘s preoccupation with relative youth is not limited to celebrity, but extends to fashion, specifically modeling. Ondria Hardin (Ford) burst onto the scene this season with her Prada Fall 2011 campaign by Steven Meisel and takes a turn for the editorial with a story by photographer Mikael Jansson and stylist Karl Templer.
Lara Mullen (Ford) has been featured on The Cut, Models.com, and late last week hit the big stage with a Vogue.it appearance. The English new face counts Karmen Pedaru as her favorite top model, fancies TV crime dramas, and enjoyed a smashing debut runway season walking for Alexander Wang, Prada, and Givenchy.
Take It for a Swirl
Oil spill on top. Galactic blooms below. Hanne Gaby Odiele keeps the palette complementary and the prints contradictory. The result? A very happy union. Her capacious Dries Van Noten cape stays in control over slim cropped pants, and for a respite from the print on print, a skinny belt tied in an insouciant knot and a pair of shiny gold pumps break it up.
It’s never too late to enroll in Trends 101, and this fall we’re ready to embrace our inner nerd. To ace this season’s collegiate look try polished layered combinations: collared shirts with plaid blazers and rugby sweaters. Complement your ensemble with pieces like chunky cable-knit stockings, round-frame glasses, leather satchels, and oxfords. But, you tell us:
How would you do schoolgirl cool?
Before completely delving into V74, there is a bit of unfinished business with said magazine’s brother publication, VMAN. The latest issue, the glossy red number with the Yale PhD candidate and frequent Gawker polling subject on its cover, takes “decades” as its theme. To introduce the issue, VMAN looks to men throughout the decades as a way to understand today’s man — not necessarily the guy who nicks his wife’s concealer.
