Washed-Up Model Photography: New York Magazine's 'Pyrexia' Editorial Captures Surreal Seaside Portraits

Stunning and surreal are two words that describe the 'Pyrexia' image series from New York Magazine. The editorial recently caught our eye thanks to its playful mix of sea creature props and washed-up model stills. This oceanic fashion story by photographer Herson Nebaya explores bold visual themes that are brought to life by model Antoine Guyon. 

Whether he is washed up on shore or rocking moss and seaweed-infused hair, Antoine commits to his unconventional role and pulls off an edgy wardrobe courtesy of stylist Argie Salango. Metallic tones, textured fabrics, and sheer panel pieces make up a range of effortlessly cool looks that embody clean and modern design lines.

THE BRUNETTES Attend Laura Siegel's Project Eleven27 Launch at Soho House Toronto

Always encouraging the public to think about where and how the clothing they shop for is made, designer Laura Siegel held an event on April 24, 2014 at Soho House Toronto to kick off the inception of her Project Eleven27 conscious-fashion cause. 

Created to remind those of the many who lost their lives in the Bangladesh factory collapse, which manufactured garments for some of the industry's most recognizable, fast-fashion brands, Project Eleven27 commemorated the lives of the hundreds of workers involved in the tragedy.

Selected members of the media were invited to come out and show their support for the cause by purchasing one of 1,127 limited-edition Laura Siegel scarves (one scarf for every life lost), which were handwoven by local artisans in Kutch, India with ethical work practices like fair wages and safe workplace environments. 

The scarves were crafted using recycled sarees as part of Siegel's commitment to the environment. Select pieces from her line were also up for grabs, with 40% of the event's sales being donated to Sreepur Village; a charitable organization that assists Bangladeshi mothers and children in need.

Presented on the one year remembrance of the Bangladesh factory tragedy, the Project Eleven27 launch, as well as many other of Laura Siegel's initiatives to promote an ethical fashion revolution, serves as an important reminder to  designers, retailers, and consumers that the tag sewn on the inside of a shirt tells us more about that garment than just how it needs to be cared for.

Fashion Flashback: THE BRUNETTES Remember FAT 2013

Unlike typical Fashion Week events, FAT Arts & Fashion Week combines runway presentations with other modern art forms, such as dance, fashion photography, and art installations, to create a truly unique and multi-disciplinary fashion experience for its guests.

Running from tonight until April 26, 2014, FAT’s 2014 lineupwith its ‘INFASHION / UNFASHION’ theme, consists of shows programmed together following contrasting ideals of what’s on trend versus what’s counterculture.

Tickets are available for sale on FAT’s website now. For those curious about what they can expect from the five-day event, we’ve included our favourite moments from FAT 2013 in this Fashion Flashback posting.

A great place to discover a new designer or brand, or just to take in an edgier show than you’re likely to see at World MasterCard Fashion Week, FAT offers a subculture of fashion that rarely gets to be experienced on such a grand scale; it’s kind of like what indie music is to pop, only with stunning clothing.
