Sam Haskins for Celine – New Windows!

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Following the success of the Isetan windows in Tokyo earlier this year, Celine have rolled out new window designs featuring Sam's photography in multiple countries in the Far East.

This time the image is from the famous black raincoat series in 'November Girl' published in 1967. November Girl was the final book in Sam's iconic figure photography trilogy from the sixties. The two preceding titles were 'Five Girls' and 'Cowboy Kate and other stories'.





Here is another famous image from the 'November Girl' black raincoat series which also appeared in 'Fashion Etcetera', published in 2009.

Celine at Isetan in Tokyo

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Last month, the French luxury fashion brand Celine decorated their Isetan windows in Tokyo with Sam's images and the customary elegance of their product and presentation design.




The feather is a detail from a photograph that appears in Sam's latest book 'Fashion Etcetera' (2009). The derriere-as-apple reflection first appeared in 'Photo-Graphics' (1980) and the black and white shot is from 'Cowboy Kate' (1964).

Lingerie shoot for Vogue Paris

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Sam did a lingerie shoot for Vogue Paris in 2002 (and later reprinted in Vogue Australia), which for some reason was rediscovered by a flurry of fashion blogs this week. A couple of images from this shoot appear in Sam's last book, Fashion Etcetera. Since the images are enjoying a burst of popularity I thought it as good a reason as any to give them another airing.

I am including here some of the images which didn't make it into the original article and a selection of those that did. Some shots are low res scans from the original magazine which is not in my possession and some are jpegs made from the Fashion Etcetera production files. The variation in quality is, I think, an acceptable trade off against the interest of showing the images together.

Salon des Refusés – part 2

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

In the course of producing my new book 'Fashion Etcetera' we ended up with a long short list, retouching and rejecting a volume of images almost equal to those that made it into the final book which contains 177 colour images and 114 black and whites.

The image with the book title was the first iteration of the front cover. To see the final cover refer to this post and for explanation of the two editions click here



This is the second post in a blog series featuring shots that hit the cutting room floor. Other photographs in this series can be seen here:

FASHION ETECETERA will be launched in September with an exhibition at Milk Gallery in New York. The project is a partnership with the Tommy Hilfiger group who have exclusive 3rd party rights to market, distribute and sell a special edition of the book and are sole sponsors of the exhibition.
