Homage to John Kacere by Robbie Fimmano for Interview, March 2015

This lush editorial from March’s Interview magazine is an homage to artist John Kacare. Kacere was one of the pioneers of the photo realism, painting ladies’ torsos clad in lingerie.   His subjects were usually lounging in bed, giving the paintings a sense of intimacy, with an emphasis on the fullness of curves.

Bert Stern’s photographs of the young actress Sue Lyon as Lolita made an impact on the fashion world that is still felt today.   This beautiful editorial by the photographer of bombshell Eva Herzigova show off the looks of those iconic photographs, girl-next-door things like cardigans, gingham, denim with knitwear and lots of innocent but seductive lingerie.  Mixed with some referencing to Andre de Dienes’s early photographs of Marilyn Monroe, this is a beautiful, sensual editorial that remains timeless and inspirational.

The Pirelli calendar is a great fashion myth, actually seen by few, talked about by many. Next year’s calendar is shot by Steven Meisel, who’s past work with Madonna is a great indication of the level of unabashed sex that will fill the twelve months. These just released behind the scenes pictures, taken by Marc Regasm reveal the ladies of next year – supers like Adriana Lima, newbies like Gigi Habib and the gorgeous plus sized model Candice Huffine, all decked out in latex and corsets and knee socks and Jesus H Christ this is a lot of fetishy wonderment.

Dita and EVU’s retro fabulous styles blend like magic whenever they work together. This editorial from 2005, a crimson flushed romp with Dita through EVU’s high contrast lens, is a great example of these two artists’ work blending perfectly.

Dita has a lot of new projects going on right now, all of which we’re so excited about. Along with her recently launched in the US lingere line Von Follies, she also has a scent and a new eyewear line. All the things that she’s putting out are beautifully recreated vintage inspired pieces – the perfect cat eye sunglasses, the ultimate shelf bra, the gorgeous perfume bottle. Dita’s proving that her devotion to vintage is being put to good use, and bringing back the level of glamour that was the norm in the 40’s and 50’s.
