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.
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.
The debut of the new magazine System is set to May this Spring and it is a deep-thought magazine about the fashion industry brought to us by an editorial board of very influential persons – Alexia Niedzielski & Elizabeth von Guttman (editors at Interview magazine and co-founders of Ever Manifesto), Jonathan Wingfield (former editor of Numéro), Thomas Lenthal (art director of the journal Paradis) and stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé. Their aim is to explore the social environment of fashion in context of what happens when a designer leaves a fashion house or an e-commerce site overtakes a traditional retailer. First interview puts focus on Nicolas Ghesquière, who is photographed by Juergen Teller. I am really looking forward to this issue, not only because of the in-depth interview with Ghesquière but also since it is covering profiles such as Yves Carcelle and Azzedine Alaïa. For now, System will be released twice a year, and hopefully that will continue on.
