This editorial, styled by Emmanuelle Alt, is featured in the Vogue May 2013 issue and photographed by talented duo Inez & Vinoodh. Freja is one of my all time favorite models, there is just something about her look that is so flawless. For this editorial she is wearing couture and show pieces Elie Saab, Giambattista Valli, Chanel and more. My absolute favorite looks are the one from Armani Privé (above) and the Gaultier Paris (below). I love how she work the knotted sequin top with the slitted skirt and the trousers underneath. True perfection, and I wouldn’t mind strolling around in something similar this summer. I totally need to look after a skirt like that. Although maybe a bit shorter, but still. Just gorgeous to a loose fitted tee and flats sandals.
I must say I am starting to dig these boots from the Saint Laurent Fall 2013 collection. I wasn’t a big fan of the pimped-out ones when seeing the collection for the very first time. Somehow I just couldn’t cope with the fact that such a classy, timeless and fabulous brand as Saint Laurent when a bit mainstream and ‘hard-core’ showing of stuff that I basically could find at, well, Topshop (nothing wrong with Topshop though). I do love the fact that I have seen a lot of cool, timeless and classic pieces from the Saint Laurent in stores and web-shops. Apparently Hedi Slimane has created a ‘Permanent Collection’ that will be available all year around and which include pieces like leather jackets, denim, t-shirts and duffle bags that are all a great foundation in a wardrobe. I do like the idea of dividing the brand in such collections and lines. For the this campaign the creative director has captured Danish Freja-Beha Erichsen in the new Saint Laurent store in Paris (and the collection was a celebration of this new opening). Anyway the boots in this editorial is a pair I wouldn’t mind at all for this fall. By the way, great looks in this editorial from the latest issue of Vogue China, June 2013. Eliza Cummings looks effortless smart captured by Daniel Jackson.
Today the May issue of Vogue Paris hit the stands and I can’t wait to grab this issue – the editorials that I have seen looks amazing. In this issue focus lies on the Cannes Film Festival as well as Punk and the exhibition of ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’. The exhibition that will open at the MET in N.Y this May was also the inspiration of the Style.com Print’s third issue, something I wrote about here. I am really curious about this expo especially since both Style.com/Print and Vogue Paris has taking it under their wings for their latest issues, and I would love to see it. Freja Beha Erichsen is featured on the cover in a punk chic look shot by the amazing duo Inez & Vinoodh. Anyway, I couldn’t help myself to post an editorial that I liked from this issue styled by Emmanuelle Alt from one of the location they been to, the Sahara desert. I love the sport influences and Andreea Diaconu looks amazing.
