Why I love fashion magazines

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Papillon 0 Comments Category : , , ,

Fashion magazines are a window to the world. They are points of view, dreams, debates and discussions,  new things to learn and know, and above all, beauty. Magical images are created by amazing teams of visionaries who gather to create something special just for you to see. Fashion editorials can be practical or otherworldly, simple or theatrical, but they share their main goal: convey a message, inspire you

I'm always inspired by fashion magazines and in this digital wonder world I continue to buy them loyally, because nothing beats the touch and feel of a new magazine. The pages are all brand new, waiting for your eyes to go through them, all carefully thought up to make you stop at every moment and especially to make you feel.

Sometimes, fashion editorials are created with the purpose of paying an homage. Like the one below, published on the May 2011 issue of Vogue US. The dream team: styling by Grace Coddington, pictures by Steven Meisel, fashion by the one and only Alexander the Great. Celebrating the work of this iconic designer, and my personal favorite, this editorial features looks from the exhibition "Savage Beauty" and some of McQueen's most recognizable designs. 

Elegance is timeless and this editorial portraits the genius of McQueen's collections and the savage beauty within his message beautifully.
