Could This Be?

Posted in Editorial by strytllng on September 6, 2011

Who made this miracle happen? What is different? Do I really like this editorial featuring Alexa Chung? Did I really fall for the 60s aesthetic? (It’s been a little too “out there” since H&M are using it for their Fall key-looks) Is it my lack of vitality (ask me about some strength left in those sore muscles of mine.) or am I not the only one loving this editorial from Harper’s Bazaar UK?

As you may know, I am not a fan of overly present people/things/trends/campaigns/… therefore I haven’t been the biggest Alexa fan out there. Don’t get me wrong, she definitely is a beautiful girl with a very interesting appeal, a good sense in style and I am sure she is nice too but she’s been EVERYWHERE these past two years, presenting her “unique” style. I pretty much got bored at one point seeing her on yet another magazine cover – until today. But what is it that makes me like these photos so much? I’ve been thinking about this for two hours now and here are my racing thoughts about it: it’s the photographic ‘snapshot’ aesthetic paired with these relaxed 60s looks. It’s not about her – any model could have been staring in this feature. My favorite protagonist in this editorial is in fact the knitted sweater in the record store.

Pattern? Anyone?

    For those British English among us: The Jil Sander jumper! I find her extraordinary in that one.

    Beautiful captures and styling. Alexa is beautiful, but I agree, there’s much more than that that is truly fascinating in this editorial.

      The more often I look at it, the more fascinating it becomes.
