This recent editorial for Japanese Vogue photographed by Sølve Sundsbø is fantastic. The Prada jewel pieces (5th down) and that stunning Alexander McQueen outfit in the sixth picture down really make the model look like some sort of fantasy sea creature. I wonder if the model was actually underwater, or if it is clever retouching? If I was directing the shoot, I don't think I could ever bring myself to sumberge (and probably ruin) all that stunning, fragile clothing. Assuming it was actually shot underwater, I wonder if it was done before McQueen died, because after McQueen's death his company announced that they were recalling all the samples, so as to preserve his legacy, and surely they wouldn't have allowed them to be soaked in a swimming pool after then?
I'm a bit worried about this blog... lately, when I've been able to blog, it has been about quite random things which I've been thinking, as opposed to things which are partially formed by my idea of what a 'fashion blog' should be like, which is what I used to do before. Is it too much when I post inspiring pictures of military aircraft, or start talking about the concept of fashion? I sense, possibly wrongly, that people are losing interest compared to before when I did much more directly 'fashion-y' posts all the time. Maybe it's because of the slight personal crisis I've been having lately, which has meant that I don't really have much confidence in anything that I do, and my antidepressants have been making me feel a little dazed... Please just comment if I'm starting to get boring/incomprehensible.
