W Magazine – “Spellbound”


We all went through our childhood being fascinated with tales of faeries and magic. Back then I wondered how it would feel like to be spirited away to a world where I can converse with woodland animals and stand up with powerful beings who wield fire and steel to protect and to destroy. Now that I’m all grown up, I’m happy living in reality although there are times when my fantasies take me back to that special imaginary place. This editorial from W Magazine is title “Spellbound” and it will bring you back to your childhood by featuring models as supernatural creatures, but with a dark twist. The models in this editorial are Anniek Kortleve, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Ethan James, Mae Lapres, Meghan Collison, Peyton Knight, Yuri Pleskun, Aaron Vernon and Rachel Trachtenburg and they’re all looking ethereal and sinister in pieces from Marc Jacobs, Giorgio Armani, Prada and many others. The looks were put together by W Magazine’s Fashion and Style Director Edward Enninful and the haunting images are lensed by photographer Steven Meisel for the publication’s September 2012 issue.
