Posted Mar 11, 2015
Joan Smalls lights up the night sky in ‘Eccentric H.C.’ by Steven Klein for Vogue Italia, The Alta Moda Haute Couture Supplement Issue. High tech images embrace invention as modern artistry celebrates excess. Jordan Barrett & Xiao Wen Ju connect with Joan in the madness of model turned machine. Costumed creatures come from the future with bold features that breed light into dark. Each silhouette shows off its lines with neon rich colors that saturate the city-scape. Patti Wilson penetrates the mind with one-of-a-kind pieces from such designers; Atelier Versace, Dior, Giambattista Valli, Givenchy, La Perla & Valentino. High fashion has arrived with avant-garde aliens featured in sci-fi style. Finding the face of the future, Kabuki, crashes into creation with razor sharp beauty, so clean, it’ll cut you. Edgy applications breed artistic machinations with visual overlays that wear like a mask. Makeup takes on the night with hyper-real cosmetics that inspire magic. Hairstylist, Schon, caps things off with tectonic toppers that finish up the head-gear with a fierce finale. Real or Robot? Jesse Kaufman takes us into the subset of the story with steamy Set Designs that soar, while Klein captures our forward fascination by showing us filmic pictures that fly.
