Xiao Wen Ju, Tian Yi, Tang Xiao Tian & River Huang play ‘A Band Apart’ by Mario Testino
for Vogue China
December 2013. Part of Testino’s marathon 150+ page fashion spread celebrating the magazine’s 100th issue
, this funk-fetish glam-slam takes us on a trend trip through China’s exploding style scene. Edgy and out-of-hand this kind of blown-out beauty brings to mind the decadent days of the 80’s, with hyper-stylized shots artfully arranged by Beat Bolliger
. Looking like walking, talking versions of Patrick Nagel’s
famous graphically enhanced sex symbols, with dark features and dangerous curves, this high octane editorial feels like the second coming of deco-rock pop-art.
