Here is another ‘Vogue Archives’ post where I go back through my collection of Vogue issues and look at particular adverts, editorials or interviews.
This time it is from the November 2013 issue, I chose this particular editorial to look into because the photographs stood out to me straight away when I was flicking through.
Wish-you-were-here wiggle skirts and sumptuous outerwear will see you through the tides of season.
Styled by: Jane How
Photographed by: Glen Luchford
Model: Andreea Diaconu
The concept behind this shoot was the change in seasons, as it was getting deep into autumn and the fashions were changing along with temperatures.
In the photographs you can see that the setting is coastal, complete with a 99 and an obligatory shot on a boat. I love this style of photography; it is very natural and tells a story through the editorial. We can see the model has been affected by nature with her windswept hair as she journeys along the coastline. I love how she is being portrayed as this glamorous 20-something at the beach – who has on a cheetah print skirt paired with a chunky knit but then in some photos, obviously shot indoors, it shows her in a corset or sheer blouse. As if she wasn’t quite sure what to expect from her coastal visit.
“A leopard-print coat signifies universal glamour (even when grounded in reality by construction boots and bruising winds).”
Photographer of this shoot, Glen Luchford, is known for his edgy style and interesting images, some of which can be dramatic. I think this particular shoot is very seductive and edgy whilst having that story of a glamorous city girl at the beach.
