Blackglama has unveiled its newest advertising campaign, which continues to evolve the brand’s focus into fashion from celebrities. For over 40 years, Blackglama has been world-renowned for providing the finest, most luxurious and exclusive ranch-raised natural black mink. Blackglama mink is distributed exclusively through American Legend Cooperative, based in Seattle, Washington, and sought after by manufacturers, retailers, and consumers globally. All Blackglama mink comes from Origin Assured™ farms.

Each Blackglama pelt is hand selected and inspected by American Legend Cooperative’s experienced graders. To qualify as Blackglama, the pelt must be free of any imperfections on both the fur and leather. With such high criteria, less than 2% of the world’s mink population earns the exclusive Blackglama name and can bear the coveted Blackglama label. Blackglama garments also carry a label displaying a unique serial number, providing permanent identification, as well as other security features that ensure that the label is genuine—not an imitation.

1968 represented a turning point in world events and a shift in American culture. To the members of the Great Lakes Mink Association (GLMA), these turbulent times seemed a world away. Working long hours on farms throughout the upper Midwestern United States, they were busy improving and producing the world’s finest dark mink. Little did they know that their work would form the basis of a revolutionary new marketing campaign.

The GLMA ranchers hired a small New York ad agency to create awareness for the high-quality fur being produced by the farmers. Popular copywriter Jane Trahey suggested creating the brand name BLACKGLAMA. How does one advertise something as special as the dark Blackglama mink? The luster and quality of the fur doesn’t show up in a photograph, so Jane thought up a “gimmick.”

The “gimmick” was to associate Blackglama with the glamour of universally recognized and admired people. The result was brilliantly simple: a black-and-white photograph of a well-known woman wearing a Blackglama mink coat shot against a seamless grey backdrop.

The world took notice. Famous names like Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Barbra Streisand and Lauren Bacall were featured in the first year of the campaign alone, photographed by the renowned Richard Avedon. What brought it all together was the straightforward and now unforgettable tagline, “What Becomes A Legend Most?” The effect was powerful and immediate. Within two years, Blackglama was considered the most prestigious ranch black mink in the world. The campaign continued through 1994.

Since the campaign’s inception four decades ago, Blackglama has featured some of the world’s most acclaimed entertainers, including Sophia Loren, Diana Ross, Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall, Marlene Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, Lena Horne, Liza Minnelli and Janet Jackson. Beginning with the 2013 Carolyn Murphy campaign, Blackglama shifted away from entertainers toward models to highlight Blackglama’s fashion aesthetic.

Since 2001, the campaign has featured such supermodels as Linda Evangelista, Gisele Bündchen, Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Naomi Campbell and Elizabeth Hurley. Beginning with the 2013 Carolyn Murphy campaign, Blackglama shifted away from entertainers toward models to highlight Blackglama’s fashion aesthetic. Into the new millennium, the brand is expanding beyond dark mink to include other products that reflect the “Legendary” qualities of Blackglama.

This year, model Jessica Stam is featured in a campaign conceived by New York-based advertising and branding agency Laspata DeCaro. “In these stunning shots, Jessica represents a reinvention of Hollywood glamour that feels both timeless and relevant,” says Joe Morelli, CEO of Blackglama.

In the new campaign, the platinum blonde and crimson-lipped model is captured in a series of cinematic vignettes photographed by Rocco Laspata on location in Los Angeles. Settings include a majestic palm-lined street in Beverly Hills, a dramatic villa in Malibu overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and an alluring 1930’s supper club that references Hollywood’s golden age. Swathed in Blackglama’s 2015 collection – co-designed by Laspata DeCaro‘s Creative Director, Charles DeCaro, to align with the campaign’s visual narrative – Jessica embodies a modern-day screen goddess. The results are the very epitome of glamour.

Vanity Fair July 2015 Issue: Introducing Caitlyn Jenner

Vanity Fair’s 22-page cover story features stunning Annie Leibovitz photos of Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce, along with revealing new details. Here’s a preview of the story.

556c7a214ae56e586e457d37_vf-cover-bruce-jenner-july-2015

PHOTOGRAPHS BY ANNIE LEIBOVITZ

 

Speaking publicly for the first time since completing gender transition, Caitlyn Jenner compares her emotional two-day photo shoot with Annie Leibovitz for the July cover of Vanity Fair to winning the gold medal for the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics. She tells Pulitzer Prize–winning V.F. contributing editor and author of Friday Night Lights Buzz Bissinger, “That was a good day, but the last couple of days were better. . . . This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person. It’s not about the fanfare, it’s not about people cheering in the stadium, it’s not about going down the street and everybody giving you ‘that a boy, Bruce,’ pat on the back, O.K. This is about your life.

Jenner tells Bissinger about how she suffered a panic attack the day after undergoing 10-hour facial-feminization surgery on March 15—a procedure she believed would take 5 hours. (Bissinger reveals that Jenner has not had genital surgery.) She recalls thinking, “What did I just do? What did I just do to myself?” A counselor from the Los Angeles Gender Center came to the house so Jenner could talk to a professional, and assured her that such reactions were often induced by pain medication, and that second-guessing was human and temporary.

Jenner tells Bissinger the thought has since passed and not come back: “If I was lying on my deathbed and I had kept this secret and never ever did anything about it, I would be lying there saying, ‘You just blew your entire life. You never dealt with yourself,’ and I don’t want that to happen.

Bissinger spent hundreds of hours with the man the world knew as Bruce Jenner over a period of three months, and then countless hours with Caitlyn, also attending the photo shoot with Leibovitz at Jenner’s Malibu home.

Bissinger apologizes to Jenner for repeated pronoun confusion and asks whether she is sensitive about it. “I don’t really get hung up,” she tells him. “A guy came in the other day and I was fully dressed—it’s just habit, I said, ‘Hi, Bruce here,’ and I went, Oh fuck, it ain’t Bruce, I was screwing up doing it.”

Bissinger speaks extensively with Jenner’s four children from his first two marriages—Burt, 36, and Cassandra, 34, with first wife Chrystie, and Brandon, 33, and Brody, 31, with second wife Linda—and describes an insensitive father who had been absent for years at a time. Jenner openly acknowledges mistakes made with them as Bruce, and expresses genuine regret. Says Burt, “I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that.”

For the Jenner children, the issue of the transition has become a non-issue. They were already aware of their father’s identity as a woman when he told them individually about the transition—Burt and Cassandra had learned from their mother roughly 20 years earlier, when they were 13 and 11; Brandon had assumed it because of the obvious physical changes he had observed; and Brody was told by his mother when he was 29. They tell Bissinger they feel both happiness for their father and inspiration at his bravery, and they all still see their dad as their dad regardless of any gender label. Brandon said he was a little taken aback when he saw Caitlyn for the first time after surgery and she pulled her top up to reveal her new breasts. “Whoa, I’m still your son,” he reminded her.

As part of the transition, Jenner started hosting small gatherings called “girls’ nights” with wine and food where Jenner could dress as desired and feel natural in the presence of women, and it was there that her daughter Cassandra met Caitlyn for the first time. “I was just nervous that I wouldn’t make her feel comfortable,” Cassandra tells Bissinger. “I was worried I wouldn’t say the right things or act the right way or seem relaxed.” But almost all of it melted away when she got there. “We talked more than we ever have. We could just be girls together.”

Despite the renewed relationship with their father, the Jenner children have refused to participate in Caitlyn’s docu-series for the E! network, set to debut this summer, forgoing financial gain in favor of preserving their father’s legacy. Initially, Caitlyn was “terribly disappointed and terribly hurt,” but has come to accept their decision. For her part, Caitlyn is prepared for the criticism that it’s a publicity stunt: “‘Oh, she’s doing a stupid reality show. She’s doing it for the money. She’s doing this, she’s doing that.’ I’m not doing it for money. I’m doing it to help my soul and help other people. If I can make a dollar, I certainly am not stupid. [I have] house payments and all that kind of stuff. I will never make an excuse for something like that. Yeah, this is a business. You don’t go out and change your gender for a television show. O.K., it ain’t happening. I don’t care who you are.

 

Neiman Marcus Announces Stella Tennant as the Face of The Spring 2015 Art of Fashion Campaign Photographed by Luigi & Iango

Neiman Marcus announces the Spring 2015 Art of Fashion Campaign with photographers Luigi Murenu and iango Henzi. Luigi & iango capture the Scottish model Stella Tennant in 28 of spring’s boldest looks. The simplicity of the set lets the dramatic clothes, the sinuous Tennant, and the lensmen’s superb lighting—a single giant lamp typically reserved for film sets—work their magic.

The lights are strong and continuous. Brutal,” attests Murenu, one half of the New York–based team. “But Stella is very artistic, her body expressive.” Over the three-day shoot, Murenu and Henzi switch roles organically, pivoting between art-directing compositions and stepping behind the camera. “We’re completely integrated to one idea even if it has two voices,” Murenu explains.

The Swiss-born Henzi brings the precision of fine art, while Murenu, raised in Sardinia, radiates with the excitement of fashion. Together, they create images that compel—and endure—with a streetwise elegance.

The Spring 2015 Art of Fashion campaign is about classic, iconic fashion photography and bringing together three amazing creative forces: Luigi, iango and Stella Tennant,” said Georgia Christensen, Neiman Marcus Executive Creative Director. “It was wonderful to see Luigi and iango work together and experience their creative process. Two minds. Two points of view that came together seamlessly into one portfolio of images. A true collaboration of passionate artists devoted to the industry. Stella is a dream, I often found myself mesmerized by her on set. The result is extraordinary imagery.”

Designer merchandise featured in the Spring 2015 campaign includes: Akris, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Burberry Prorsum, Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Chloe, Christian Louboutin, Cucinelli, Derek Lam, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Emilio Pucci, Erdem, Gucci, Lanvin, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Roger Vivier, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, The Row, Tom Ford, and Valentino.

Since 1994, each spring and fall, the world’s most visionary photographers have carried the torch and given The Art of Fashion their own signature. Past photographers have included: Richard Avedon, Geof Kern, Peggy Sirota, Ruven Afandador, Diego Uchitel, Peter Lindbergh, Arthur Elgort, Camilla Akrans, Raymond Meier, Erik Madigan Heck, and Walter Chin. The campaign will be featured in our publication “the Book” as well as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and Vanity Fair.

The Whitney Presents Edward Steichen in the 1920s and 1930s: A Recent Acquisition, Highlighting a Beneficent Gift from Richard and Jackie Hollander

The Whitney Museum of American Art will mount an exhibition of works by Edward Steichen, the pioneering American photographer best known for his striking portraits from the early-twentieth century. Organized by senior curatorial assistant Carrie Springer, the exhibition includes celebrity portraits and fashion photographs taken for Vanity Fair and Vogue, images shot for advertising campaigns, and a selection of photographs that show the artist’s interest in the natural world. The approximately forty-five works that comprise Edward Steichen in the 1920s and 1930s: A Recent Acquisition were a generous gift to the Whitney from Richard and Jackie Hollander in memory of Ellyn Hollander. The exhibition will be on view from December 6 through February 2014 in the Museum’s Anne & Joel Ehrenkranz Gallery.

Edward Steichen (1879–1973) began his career as a painter and a photographer, producing atmospheric and expressive photographs with a deliberate painterly appearance. After serving in World War I as an aerial photographer, he abandoned painting and developed a more modernist approach to photography, focusing on making images for the printed page. After serving as the chief photographer for Condé Nast publications from 1923 to 1937, Steichen resigned from his post and, at the age of fifty-nine, gave up his New York studio.

During World War II, Steichen volunteered for service, and became director of the U.S. Navy Photographic Institute, in charge of all Navy Combat photography. In 1947, he was appointed director of the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, where he worked for fifteen years and curated more than forty exhibitions. His most famous show was The Family of Man (1955), a wide-ranging exhibition of photographs by artists from around the world linked together a shared human experience. MoMA also mounted an exhibition of Steichen’s own work in 1961, the year before he retired. In 1963 President John F. Kennedy presented Steichen with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor the government bestows to a civilian.

This exhibition covers a period when Steichen was the chief photographer for Condé Nast Publications, a position he held from 1923 to 1937. Considered one of the greatest portrait photographers at that time, Steichen was assigned to photograph famous actors, writers, artists, statesmen, and society figures for Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines. His portraits—including iconic images of Winston Churchill, Paul Robeson, Marlene Dietrich, Eugene O’Neill, and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, among others which will be on view— depict a rich slice of cultural history.
