I'm feeling like a flat tyre, and I can't find the right words to describe his style but I think it's truly inspiring. The editorial from #2 is when the styling first jumped out to me, all the geometric compositions and objects, that's so me. Well, part of And then the editorials with Gemma, very different, probably because it was in studio and... question. To what extent is it up to the photographer to decide what's in the picture? Anyhow, both styles appeal to me.
Wouldn't he make a terrifyingly great duo with Bourdin?
thanks for the thread, perlefine.
i have noticed that he is the name behind some of the best editorials...
for example the (in-)famous hollywood issue of vogue italia by steven meisel (from jedroot.com):
Rep'd by Jed Root, Inc. Check out his work here. I only hope to have this kind of strength behind my showroom requests someday (*sigh*).
Big kudos should go to the art direction behind many of the shoots already posted here.
From the site:
NEW YORK- At the age of 18, British stylist Edward Enninful was appointed fashion director of i-D magazine, the fashion and style bible responsible for cultivating some of the world's best imagemakers. This appointment made him the youngest ever fashion director to work on an international magazine, a position he still holds today, 14 years later.
As well as i-D, Edward is also contributing editor to Italian and L'uomo Vogue. These posts combined with his current celebrity work for Vanity Fair have made him one of the most sought after stylists in the industry.
Among the photographers with whom he has worked are Steven Meisel, Richard Burbridge, Craig McDean, Steven Klein, Mert and Marcus, Paolo Roversi, Mario Testino, Tesh, Michael Thompson and Ellen Von Unwerth.
As well as his editorial work, Edward has styled numerous runway presentations and advertising campaigns including Dolce And Gabbana, Jil Sander, Calvin Klein, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Missoni, Anna Molinari Blumarine, Allessandro Del'acqua, H by Hilfiger and Commes Des Garcons, along with beauty giants Lancome, Covergirl and M.A.C.
the Vogue IT editorial is probably my favorite this year. I feel the same as perlefine, I'm not so sure about the selection of the clothes, they could've been the same and looked terrible under a different lense. i think enninful definitely gets a good ride while working with roversi...I'd really like to see more editorials...
