British Vogue – “Orient Excess”
This season has been filled with many looks that are inspired by the Far East and magazines can’t help but put up fashion stories that are inspired by the culture that created them. Open up your favorite fashion bible and you’ll probably see editorials with either a Memoirs of a Geisha theme or an In The Mood For Love vibe. This editorial from British Vogue is neither (but it still has a Wong Kar-wai feel to it) as it injects this season’s Asian-inspired pieces with other glam pieces that make eveningwear sultry and sexy. The editorial, titled “Orient Excess”, features models Sui He, Sung Hee Kim, Ji Hye Park and Fei Fei Sun looking like women of the night who will make your fantasies come true. British Vogue’s Fashion Director Lucinda Chambers selected the pieces from Prada, Gucci, Etro and many others while photographer Mario Testino lensed the images for the magazine’s March 2013 issue.
