Sunkissed since 2009, We Are Handsome is the creative expression of husband and wife pair Jeremy and Katinka Somers focusing on re-imagining the norms of swimwear design to construct pieces that capture the spirit and emotion of summer and now athletic wear. The Australian brand is the embodiment of a love for the beautiful things in life, the wonder of travel and the endless and abundant magic of the inspiring world in which we live. Each piece offers a slice of summer wrapped in luxury and sophistication that transcends the seasons.
Annex Magazine: Tell us about We Are Handsome and your recent growth from swimwear to athletic wear.
We Are Handsome: It was very much a natural progression. We’ve always designed and produced the things that fit into our lives, and those that befit an active, summer filled and outdoor lifestyle. We’re big into exercise, swimming, hiking and everything in between, and the progression to activewear was really organic.

Girl crush much? The gorgeous, stunning Miranda Kerr has been named the new face of H&M for their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign. They revealed the news on H&M’s Twitter posting a picture of Kerr with her face mostly covered up stating they would soon reveal the new face of H&M. A few hours later, they posted a full picture revealing Kerr. Then they took to Instagram and posted again on their profile a short video in which Kerr herself states, “Hi H&M followers, I’m Miranda Kerr and I’m the new face of H&M spring campaign. Stayed tuned for more.”
Previously having worked for Mango, Kerr is no newbie to being the face of a massive company. The sweet Aussie, who split from Orlando Bloom a few months ago, has been busy shooting for the campaign for a couple of months which means we cannot wait to see the official campaign pictures, rumored to be released in March. Either way, the hottie seems to be doing pretty well solo.
Maybe I’ll Instagram her as my #WomanCrushWednesday for tomorrow…..

Surprise, surprise, Kate Moss is the new face of Alexander McQeen. This is the first time the supermodel has fronted a campaign for the brand, and honestly, we are so glad this hauntingly beautiful campaign happened. In addition to the breathtaking photos, she also stars in a futuristic film, which was inspired by Sixties British cult thriller, Peeping Tom.
This short film is seen through the eyes of this unknown voyeur who follows Moss through these darkened streets. He holds a replica doll version of the model as she takes us on this seat thrilling journey. She enters a desolate building as she begins to remove her clothes. It’s as sinister as you could possibly imagine.
The campaign was shot by Steven Klein in East London.

For the new Escales collection, Longchamp was looking for a girl that had a fresh attitude, strong personality, energy, confidence and there was no better option than Chung.
In some of the pictures we have been able to see, Alexa looks stunning. Styled in a very feminine and fresh way, she definitely knows how to carry a handbag.

Drama and fantasy mix with each other to create an environment full of excitement, mystery and beauty. Filmed in Venice, the second chapter of this amazing campaign, shows model Arizona Muse arriving to an incredible palace. After opening the doors of the place, she realizes there´s a party going on. Then, she encounters David Bowie, who is singing a unique version of “I rather be high.”
Arizona falls in love with every single detail of that moment: the clothes, the music, David singing. She has found freedom, perfection, destiny; everything she has looked for her entire life in one place.
She closes her eyes for a second and when she opens them, everything has faded away. The music has stopped. People aren´t dancing anymore. David is gone. She´s got only one thing that proves everything was real: a paper with the music Bowie played, hidden in her Vivienne purse. Arizona realizes that she was dreaming while being awake. Then, she decides to leave the place, searching her own destiny once again.
Revolutionizing the rules of communicaiton, the brand adopts easy access technology to bring spirt of social media into the high-end realm.
Diesel unveiled their latest campaign, shot by renowned British photographer Nick Knight using just an iPhone. In collaboration with the creatives at SHOWStudio, Knight has worked with Diesel’s Artistic Director Nicola Formichetti to conceive a campaign both revolutionary and conceptual in spirit.
Democratising fashion in the same way social media has done for much of culture, Diesel’s campaign capitalises on the multitude of photo and video apps available today to bring images that reinvent the way consumers perceive the brand’s aesthetic and as a nod to the future of fashion image construction.
Using the technology’s glitching capabilities and filters to edit the images, the final images translate the languages of social media into a new visual concept, which has never been used before. As well as being distributed across specific social platforms including Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram, this campaign will be made available at immersive digital installations in select Diesel stores.
This image campaign accompanies the launch of #DIESELTRIBUTE, Formichetti’s first collection since joining the brand and a hand-made homage to the archives of Diesel’s 35 year history. Nick Knight brings one of the most talented photographic eyes the fashion industry has ever seen, re-examining his iconic approach to the image for the digital generation.
Formichetti’s personal commitment to utilising Tumblr as a creative discovery tool has been the hallmark of his tenure at Diesel thus far; stars of his campaigns have been sourced through the interconnectivity of the site and this month he curated the transformation of the Parisian Galeries Lafayette into an immersive art gallery populated by Tumblr artists. These activities fall under the umbrella of Diesel’s brand re-imagining: #DIESELREBOOT.
