‘A Band Apart’ by Mario Testino for Vogue China December 2013

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.
