#2027 Behind the scenes at Lacoste L!VE's S/S 2012 campaign shoot

A few weeks ago I sat down for lunch with Pierre Macaigne – Lacoste's Global PR Coordinator/crazed magazine obsessive. Over sandwiches at The Smile, we discussed the joys of behind the scenes footage, by which I mean that I told him that he should let me shoot a video at the Lacoste L!VE campaign, and he told me, 'Oui, c'est bien.' So this morning a troop of models, street artist Aakash Nihalani, photographer Mark Hunter aka The Cobrasnake and the largest team of Frenchmen and women you've ever seen braved the elements in Brooklyn and took to the streets to get the job done. This was Mark Hunter's third time shooting the campaign, and the first time doing it in America – last season was shot in Berlin, the first was shot in Paris. As you'd expect, his style was relaxed and involved lots of street-roaming, stopping, shooting, roaming, stopping, shooting, then roaming some more. Good times had by all. You might notice a number of repeated outfits – I've gotta wait till the campaign drops until I can post anymore. Watch out for my video coming out over the next few weeks.

#1731 Rachel Antonoff's homecoming dance

Photos: Katherine Lowe

You know you're in for a good time when the presentation you've just walked into features an all-girl band (The Like), dancing freshmen, mean girls whispering catty nothings into each other's ears and models making out. For Fall 2011 Rachel Antonoff took it back to the homecoming dance, and every classic high schooler was in attendance.

#1375 Look like Bambi Northwood-Blyth for $149

Photo: Mark Hunter for NO Magazine

Bambi Northwood-Blyth is on blog-fire right now. I can't remember a day in the last six months when I didn't see her staring out the computer screen from under those big dark eyebrows. NO Magazine booked her for their tenth issue, Wunderkinds, shot by Mark Hunter (The Cobrasnake), styled by Zara Mirkin. This shot was an outtake. I love it. I love her facial expression, I love her nose ring, I love her hair and I especially love that Karen Walker sweater with the sleeves rolled up. Like I said, grey crew neck sweaters are having a moment. Which brings me to the point of this post: that Karen Walker crewneck will be in store next week, for $149. Back in the old days when I used to buy Karen Walker Menswear up large (and by large I mean purchasing just about every sweatshirt and tee shirt in every colourway), I used to pay over $100 just for the tee shirts. You were lucky to get a sweatshirt or hoodie for less than $250. Go the recession!

#236 TV interview with Mark Hunter aka The Cobrasnake and Tallulah Morton

Here's the interview I did with Mark Hunter from The Cobrasnake and Australian model Tallulah Morton on Monday night while they were in New Zealand. It was shot 21 storeys up at the Sky City Grand Hotel (I do NOT like heights) where (as I previously hinted) they'd been shooting an exclusive editorial for NO. Magazine.

#233 The Cobrasnake raises the roof for NO. Magazine's one year anniversary party

The Cobrasnake

NO. Magazine
's one year anniversary party exploded onto St Benedicts St last night and it was poppin like... Whatcha know bout me whatcha watcha know bout me... Whatcha know bout me whatcha whatcha know... I said NO.'s party was poppin, NO.'s party was cool, the boys and girls were hoppin, they jumped up on the pool (table).

The Cobrasnake

As I previously mentioned, Mark 'The Cobrasnake' Hunter and the larger than life Tallulah Morton graced Auckland with their presence for the party, and rumour has it the two will shoot an exclusive editorial for NO. Magazine tomorrow. As far as I know, Hunter has shot many (if not all) NO. Magazine's covers so far, including their just dropped fourth issue cover featuring Peaches Geldof.

The Cobrasnake

Maybe it was the international visitors, maybe it was the venue (literally opposite my house), maybe it was the music, maybe it was the crowd, maybe it was the party poppers?? Whatever the catalyst may have been, last night's party was easily the most fun I've been to in months.

The Cobrasnake

Watch out for my interview with Mark Hunter and Tallulah Morton on The Seen on Tuesday night, 8pm on Alt TV.

#230 Mark 'The Cobrasnake' Hunter's coming to town with Tallulah in tow

The Cobrasnake

NO. Magazine's Matt Offord told me about it last Saturday night, and here it is straight from the magazine itself: Mark 'The Cobrasnake' Hunter (pictured above with Tallulah Morton) will be in Auckland this Saturday for NO.'s one year anniversary party.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Hunter's most photographed subject, Tallulah Morton, will be coming with him, perhaps for an exclusive NO. editorial? If I'm correct, this will be the second time Morton has been in New Zealand for modelling. The first was for NZ Fashion Week 2005 when she was 13 years old, according to this NZ Herald article. I can't find any reference to Hunter having been here before, so I assume this will be his first time.

UPDATE: This just came in from Matt Offord:

Yep Tallulah is coming too! We are bringing Mark down to NZ to help us celebrate our first year of publication and the launch of our 4th issue..... and to cover the party and shoot an Editorial. Mark has been one of NO. mags most amazing collaborators and has shot one of our new covers as well as a large international celebrity fashion editorial. We love working with him and we're lucky and excited to work on more amazing stuff in the future.

One would assume that the editorial Hunter shoots will be featuring Tallulah Morton, but NO. are staying tight lipped on that one at this stage.
