A whimsical, but very McDean-ish portrait of Ine Neefs, wearing a look from Ghesquière’s Vuitton here. There’s a throwback appeal to this colourful and youthful image, taken from Craig and Karl’s ‘Graphic, Graphic, Graphic’ editorial from Vogue Italia’s July 2014 issue. Quite an impressive story despite it’s simplicity IMO.

Mariana Santana and Geron McKinley share a tender moment together in this simple and quietly engaging image taken from Meisel and Templer’s recent ‘Everytime We Meet You Make Me Feel So Incomplete’ story from Vogue Italia’s July 2014 issue.

A dreamy, hazy colourful close-up of  Tao Okamoto in an opium den (of sorts). The opening image from Mert & Marcus and Karl’s ‘China Girls’ story from Interview March 2011, it has an almost painterly quality to it.

Natasa Vojnovic holds a (Greek) statuesque pose, draped in Donna Karan’s dress from the Spring/Summer 2009 collection, here in Anthony Maule annd Karl’s simple and engaging portrait.

Both Lily Donaldson in Versace and the excess of a balcony pool overlooking Las Vegas entrance in Michael Thompson’s divine and decadent 70s influenced image from his last fashion editorial with Karl, ‘Edge of Night’, originally published in W’s February 2008 issue.

Wearing a beautiful caftan from Tom Ford’s Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Spring/Summer 2002 collection, Delfine Balfort dances to an off-beat in Steven Klein’s quirky image taken from the brilliant story ‘Unbalanced’, which he and Karl worked on together for W’s February 2002 issue.

What catches your eye first? The beautiful colours of vintage Cadillacs parked on a sunset soaked street in LA? The sumptuous colours of the head-to-toe Miu Miu ensemble? Or perhaps the Lolita-esque beauty of Anna Ewers herself. At any rate, Mikael and Karl’s picture from Interview March 2014’s cleverly titled ‘Candy Darling’ (Andy Warhol reference there you see) story is a feast for the eyes.

Son of famed fashion photographer Arthur Elgort and now a silver-screen star in his own right, here’s a less conventional, left field portrait of Ansel Elgort by Mikael and Karl, taken from a recent issue of Interview.

A prime example of Fabien Baron’s mind-bogglingly good art direction paired with Karl’s creative conception here. A double page spread taken from Mikael Jansson and Karl’s ‘Harbour Hoods’ story which featured in Arena Homme +’s Spring/Summer 2000 and featured a young bunch of girls and guys making the most of being out at the waterfront.
