>> Newly-named CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nominee Eddie Borgo has shot his jewelry on Vanessa Traina and Lauren Santo Domingo in the past, but for his Fall 2010 online campaign, which launches with the new collection on his web site come Monday, he went with friend and Elle style director Kate Lanphear. “Kate is the epitome of the modern-day punk,” Borgo told Style.com. “She encapsulates the current undertone of fashion in the most elegant, effortless way, while remaining one of the most real women in New York City.” The images were shot by Paul Maffi and styled by Borgo's boyfriend (and Lanphear's close friend) Keegan Singh.
>> The first issue of POP under Dasha Zhukova's guiding hand hits newsstands tomorrow at $8, with two international newsstand covers, each with a 50/50 split run, of Style Rookie's Tavi, plus a 500-copy limited-edition hardback cover by Ed Ruscha (below, left), and a limited subscriber's cover of Cicciolina for the Baltic States (below, right).
“The new Pop launches at an exciting turning point in fashion, where the possibilities and potential for creativity are almost overwhelming,” Zhukova told WWD. “The new era is more fluid than ever before; one where teenage girls in Chicago, fashion editors in Paris, street photographers from Berlin and bloggers everywhere . . . redefine the fashion landscape.”
>> The third issue of Dossier with Lou Doillon on the cover doesn't launch until April 12 — launch party tomorrow night — but in the meantime, co-founder Skye Parrott passed along a peek at the innards: an editorial featuring Vanessa Traina in "the best menswear of the season," photographed by Paul Maffi and styled by Keegan Singh, who was just named one of Paper's Beautiful People for 2009 along with Kate Lanphear (who also styled for this issue of Dossier) — apparently they would only consent to do Paper as a duo, featured in the same picture.
The Dossier spread features Eddie Borgo jewelry, which seems to be a trend in Singh-styled editorials — and no wonder, since they live together — Borgo is his boyfriend. Other contents to look forward to within the upcoming Dossier: jewelry designer Pamela Love takes a turn as editorial stylist, and Valentine Fillol-Cordier interviews Charles Anastase.
