editorialesque » shu he for v

shot by glen luchford, asian female model sui he appears editorially for issue no. 71 of V magazine, the asian issue. styled by beat bolliger with hair & make-up by eugene souleiman & lucia pieroni. a combination of immaculate setting & complex styling are seen as the asian theme of V’s issue no. 71 take center stage. butoh (舞踏) is a contemporary expessionist form of dance that originated post-WWII in japan. originally refererred to as ‘dance of utter darkness’, that feel of depth through darkness is felt throughout this series of images. as a model, shu he is among the new set of asian model talent that has graced the pages of V, further ensuring this new era of fashion model diversity to take place. typically involving extreme imagery, taboo topics & absurd enviornment; butoh is traditionally performed in white body make-up & involves hyper-controlled motion.  i love the simplicity & essence of japanese art form that is expressed & felt through these images. vividly inspired, thoughtfully executed.

editorialesque » color counts by vogue japan beauty

shot by ben hassett, vogue japan uses the basis of color for their june vogue beauty supplement. styled by patti wilson, with hair & make up by eugene souleiman & francelle; the spread sees jacquelyn jablonski morphing into different follicle formations through colorization done by colorist joshua wood. combining classic 60’s elements with a bit of punk rock edge- the spread allows bouts of contrast to pull a rather interesting end result. appearing alongside jablonski is hannah holman of elite, whom you’ve seen for the daisy eau so fresh marc jacobs fragrance campaign. represented by superme models, jacquelyn is one of the most visible faces in high fashion, having landed the fall cosmetic contract for givenchy as well as campaign bookings for max mara, tommy hilfiger & hermès. both appear beautifully for the spread dressed in prada, jean paul gaultier & jil sander.
