Pirelli Calendar 2013: Adriana Lima First Pregnant Model

PirelliCalendarAdrianaLima 540x359 Pirelli Calendar 2013: Adriana Lima First Pregnant Model

We are starting to see images via Buzzfeed from the famous Pirelli calendar for 2013–that’s Adriana Lima above–a significant shot because it’s the first time the calendar has featured a pregnant model. The big twist for this edition is it doesn’t feature naked models, a feature it has become known for. Photographer Steve McMurry who shot in Rio de Janiero had this to say on his reasons for keeping the models clothed:

“I would say I am a street photographer doing ‘found situations. You can photograph nudes anywhere. But these models are clothed, and each of them has her own charity. They are purposeful and idealistic people. So I wanted to photograph them in a special place, and Rio was perfect for this.”

And a lack of nudity isn’t the only break from the past, Pirelli also included street-shot images of people and places. Can we call this is an official end to the era of the industry’s obsession with photographing completely nude models–many of them in their teens? You know, not wearing an ounce of fashion, which is what they entered the business to do in the first place. One can dream!

We are super excited to premiere the Adidas Originals #WhitespaceProject video we art directed in collaboration with designers Coco & Breezy and singer Yuna. The idea of this international project is to tap creative women around the world and give them a platform to express themselves.

In the video above, Coco & Breezy chat about their accessory line and “mash-up” fashion, and we get a snippet of Yuna singing in her sweet-sweet voice. All three will bring their talents to an Adidas event taking place later this month. More details to follow!

A lot of behind-the-scenes people helped make this video possible: Kalmanovich (black fishtail skirt and white petal skirt), Nudie Jeans, Coco & Breezy custom Adidas footwear, Highsnobette x Adidas Headwrap, Butch Diva (tie-dyed fishtail skirt and gold bodysuit), Jachs (checkered button-down shirt). Make-up: Camille Thomson, Hair: Shanelle Thomas. Set design, art direction and styling Lois Sakany & Samia Grand-Pierre for Highsnobette. Directed by Kanyessa McMahon for Suddenly There.



Q&A: Leah McSweeney Married To The MOB

MOBSarah&Leah

We caught up with designer Leah McSweeney recently to find out the latest developments with her Married to the MOB label. A pioneer on the streetwear scene when she started up MOB seven years ago, the label has had it twists and turns, including the recent conclusion of a partnership with an investor and is getting back to its roots, albeit with a second-act heaping does of wisdom. McSweeney = MOB so it’s no surprise that many of the bumps, bruises and joys experienced by the brand over the past few years found a parallel in the young designer’s own life. Compelling, frank, more than slightly intense, not to mention a bit of a lightening rod, this is one female whose next moves we will always look out for and cheer.

HS: A lot has happened in the past year. Can you catch everyone up on Married to the Mob and what happened to your brand? You had investors and now you are no longer partnered with them.

Leah: Legally I can’t get into details. In the long run, the only thing that matters is I got my company back. I have nothing but gratitude toward my ex-partners, they believed in me but we’re two different animals. They’re amazing at what they do with men’s brands and I will say the three years I had funding, it was the best education on the business. I worked side by side with super smart, successful people, but more importantly I learned how to make a garment, and I learned about fabric, production and design. I started out making tee shirts and I didn’t have any experience. When I went into the partnership I was 25 and on top of the world, thinking, this is the easiest thing getting this brand to blow up. I thought it was the be all end all and it was just the beginning.

In the Q&A continued on the next page, find out aobut MOB’s second act, McSweeney’s road to sobriety, favorite collabos, what she has to say about streetwear, the future of “bitch” in MOB designs, and the start of a new label.
