With the recent Rag & Bone Menswear campaign, it appears that we stay in the field of dance. The Rag & Bone Men Fall 2015 campaign is outstanding in many aspects: it features really nice outfits (lots of shirts, parkas and draped knits), everything is finished with a perfect styling, the casting is remarkable and unexpected for a fashion campaign. Think Lil Buck or Mikhail Baryshnikov!
Rag & Bone also released a short video featuring Buck and Baryshnikov (worth to see it!). Inspired by dancing and streetstyle, the entire collection is very dynamic, playing a lot with body movements and the power of expression through clothes. Once again, Mikhail Baryshnikov – 67 years old, is absolutely fabulous.

Russian ballet dancer Sergei Polunin dons an amazing performance for Hozier’s Take Me to Church music video. The video was directed by famous photographer David LaChapelle. I think this way of combining music with dance, as we saw earlier at Sia who partnered with Maddie Ziegler and Shia LaBeouf, is a relevant trend. And it is extraordinary.
Watch LaChapelle’s video below.

Bara Prasilova graduated from the Institute of Creative Photography at Silesian University. She lives and works in Prague / Czech Republic. Her visual world consists of imaginary memories of what never happened and explorations of what could have happened if we dropped the habit of drawing our own limits. Her photographs have a characteristic slightly somber and magical atmosphere and humor, which is obvious more or less, depending on specific projects. Her objects are only mediators of the story, the role models. Bara enjoys complicating her job with insisting on real props and objects, sometimes made by her, which could in other cases be easily replaced by Photoshop. She frequently distorts figures of her models. Specifically with their feet positioning she is referring to her childhood ballet era.
Here ‘s a selection from Bara’s fashion editorial Amen, realized for Proč ne?! magazine .
