There are good witches, bad witches and witches with resplendent wardrobes. In photographer Txema Yeste’s Numero China editorial titled “Spellbound”, model Nimue Smit embodies the latter, in being the fiercest of them all with Rick Owens, Rochas and Chanel at her command. Yeste’s potent use of pulsing reds, as well as the way he drenches the compositions with light and shadow, make for an intoxicating fashion fable not easily forgotten.

A little narcissism never hurt anyone. Okay, not true. However, upon discovering this most alluring editorial titled “Nymphe” along this theme, how could one decline beauty? Aniko Mihalik plays a very glamourous, modern nymph clothed in Prada, McQueen, Givenchy, Cavalli and the occasional flower and bauble. Behind this reflective seduction is duo Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton who are known for “hypervisuality” and a precocious preoccupation with light.

NEO-Romantic, Vogue Italia, Emma Summerton, Imogen Morris Clarke, Abbey-Lee Kershaw, Gemma Arterton, Rodarte, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, Nina RicciEmma Summerton takes us on a delightful fashion romp in Vogue Italia‘s “NEO-romatic” with the likes of Rodarte, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, and Nina Ricci (just to name a few). Her attention to detail and ability to showcase both wardrobe and accessories at at their best is what I find sets her work apart. The blue and gold color palette here is exquisite and the compositions are paired down to perfection. She has also achieved a masterful balance of pattern and texture. Emma is currently working on a book of unpublished self-portraits, which I eagerly await and her video work starring Gemma Arterton is terrific:

Well, to be fair, it is Alix Malka who makes it so and the beautiful drama he has achieved through such aquatic alchemy is extraordinary. He has shot a number of projects in the water, but this editorial for Numéro Tokyo titled “Subaquatic Beauty” is not possible to forget. Gowns by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli, and Lanvin have never blossomed with such grace.
