Christopher Esber’s AW 2014 Campaign Takes Pared Back Aussie Cool to Paris

It’s not just anyone who can make crotch-skimming shots look appropriate for wearing while conducting boardroom meetings, but Christopher Esber nailed it last month at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.

Now he’s dropped the lookbook for Autumn Winter 2014 and it’s an equally unexpected blend of Australian cool and corporate dress code adherence. Coats are both billowing and structured, and sleek maxi-length dresses with intricate details wouldn’t look weird as (very expensive) beach cover-ups. Though one of the most satisfying things with Esber is how seamlessly everything would appear to slide into your existing wardrobe, which is emphasized here in pragmatic layering. Both you and your mum would approve of a turtleneck sweater under a heavy vest. 

Of course, it would be rude not to mention textiles. As the winner of the Australian leg of the International Woolmark Prize last year, just one of the many industry accolades he’s picked up in recent seasons, Esber is helping illustrate the diverse potential of knitwear. Also, sustainability! You can’t argue with that.

Esber tapped highly underrated model Charlotte Coquelin for the campaign, which was shot around the Pont Alexandre III in Paris. Photographer James Nelson’s gritty shots of the opulently decorated bridge are pretty on par with Esber’s raw, minimalist aesthetic (and perfectly complementary to Coquelin’s face).

A ‘Lifeless’ Zuzanna Bijoch Is Vogue Thailand’s June Cover Girl (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Thailand released its June 2014 cover earlier today via its Facebook page. Zuzanna Bijoch is the model of choice and she looks fabulous wearing a red fringed dress from Dolce & Gabbana. As the main cover line reads, "Bold & Bright," the cover shot is certainly reflecting that — and I'm loving it.

However, not everyone on our forum is feeling the same way. "Zuzanna looks a bit lifeless. But their model choice is adorable as always," commented Bruce7Lee.

Emmanuelle wasn't sure on Zuzanna's expression either: "The background and the light are a little too cold for this dress, it's not really working for me. I like Zuzanna and her pose, but I agree she seems a bit lifeless."

Also in the same boat is Nepenthes who wrote, "I love Zuzanna but the expression on this cover is very weak."

Jeffandtheworld made an insightful comment regarding the English text on the cover: "Need more Thai text. They are beautiful. Shame that they only like to use English text. I mean, it's a Thai Vogue."

"Love the cover! and Zuzanna looks sexy here!!" enthused Inspiration, who's the minority here and is clearly an admirer of the cover.

Everyone in our forums is in love, with TeeVanity writing, "How have I waited for this cover. Natasha alone just being back on the cover of Vogue Paris is everything. Love everything about this cover, the art, her face, her overall presence. This is the reason why people buy magazines."

"What a great concept! It looks very good, Natasha is a great choice," commented Bertrando3.

AlonsoJonathan shared the same opinion: "About time Natasha had the cover!!! I love this, finally something new and unique from Vogue Paris!!!"

"This is what I've been asking for this month, a summery cover that plays on the conventions of typical swimsuit shoots. This and the fact that it's Natasha tops it all off," wrote Melancholybaby, who was clearly very satisfied.

The cover has got Thefrenchy in the mood for summer: "Ah, I absolutely love this! This might be my favorite cover since [Emmanuelle] Alt became EIC! It's so good to see Natasha, it's a great shot and it makes me feel like summer is starting!"

Gisele Bundchen and Neymar are Vogue Brazil’s June Cover Stars (Forum Buzz)

Couple covers are all the rage it seems, and jumping on the bandwagon now is Vogue Brazil. To coincide with the World Cup, Vogue has enlisted one of Brazil's finest footballers, Neymar, who is seen posing alongside Gisele Bundchen (because you know, wouldn't be very fashion without a model in the shot). The Brazilian pair are photographed by Mario Testino for the themed issue, and a patriotic Gisele is seen wearing a white dress with the Brazilian flag draping down her side.

"Well, I guess we can't blame Vogue Brazil for releasing such a cover. I think it's way better than Vogue Spain, it looks more simple but really cool. I love the flag on her arm," commented Emmanuelle.

Miss Dalloway also preferred this as opposed to Vogue Spain's June cover with Cristiano Ronaldo & Irina Shayk: "I enjoy this much better than the Spain one as well. These covers are getting me excited for the World Cup!"

"Cool seeing Neymar on the cover!" wrote justaguy.

"Seem like a very fitting cover — two of Brazil's most recognizable faces on the cover in honor of the world cup! I really like the simple elegance of the cover, it is very tasteful with the only pops of color being the Brazilian flag. The minimal amount of text is great too," enthused YoninahAliza.

Although not everyone was on board, with Abracadabra posting, "Lazy effort, it's so distracting the way Neymar's hand just pokes out around Gisele's shoulder and the styling looks basic. The cover is nothing more than okay and I much prefer the Spanish version."

These Boob-Bearing T-Shirts Are Cool Until You Read the Product Description

"How will people react when the world inside their heads is laid bare before their eyes?" asks Japanese designer Takayuki Fukuzawa. What a surprise that the world inside a man's head would have boobs in it.

These peek-a-boo T-shirts he dreamed up will certainly make you look twice. Printed across the front: a trompe l'oeil image of a ripped shirt exposing ample cleavage and sexy lingerie. They're  like a version of those oversized tees printed with a hot bikini body your goofy uncle wears to the beach.

They seem pretty cheeky and harmless, but the website's explanation of the concept behind the design is a little creepy. "The time when our imaginings can be kept private in our minds has long passed," they say. Maybe it's the translation throwing things off, but are guys really just thinking about us in our underwear like that all the time? That can't be a thing…right?

"Everyone don a delusion mapping T-shirt and jump into a new world of ambitious dreams!" Wow, guys this shirt is going to save the world. Quickly, we need about 3.5 billion of these in a million different colorways stat!
