editorialesque » du juan for vogue china
by Jeremy Danté
styled by akari endo-gaut of the frank reps creative agency, benny horne photographed chinese female model, du juan for the pages of vogue china. shot for the publication’s may issue, the spread you see here was styled entirely from pieces sold at H&M. as a consumer, i never allow price point to dictate style or limit what i see as wearable; here that example is brought to life in the most stylish of ways. the styling of akari endo gaut has been seen in the pages of numero tokyo, l’officiel, dazed & confused & VMAN. on the runway, akari’s stylistic perspective has contributed to the shows of TSE & pamela love. her keen sensibility for pairing & contrasting styles, textures & compiling the best style elements for a wide range of looks is mindfully showcased through each of her bookings & here that talent shines even brighter. from the accessories to the use of color, i love this spread & pull tremendous inspiration from this set. represented by IMG, du juan has appeared for campaigns with david yurman & has become a regular in the pages of both american vogue & vogue china.
