The world of fashion magazines is a pretty cool one. I mean, they show you through perfectly made editorials the world's most expensive clothes worn by the world's most beautiful creatures (aka models). And apparently it's a pretty profitable job. Yes, it requires a lot of work, and yes, you need to invest a lot of monet, but not necessarily every magazine has to look like Vogue. There are so many Vogues around that we don't need another one! That's when I started to get interested in magazines that can be categorized as "independent", you know, Nylon, i-D, Dazed & Confused, Q-vest...and most recently Dansk. I have to admit that I never really payed attention to the magazine but the latest issue is insane! The covers are striking, the editorials are incredible, and most important, they don't necessarily show what's "en vogue" or at least they show it in a very artistic way.
Here's the best of Danks #26 F/W 11/12:
I'm in love with this cover! Sigrid Agren makes her most fierce stare in this wonderful shot by Aitken Jolly
Magdalena Frackowiak graces the second cover of the issue, also by Aitken Jolly
I'm kind of heptic about this editorial by Emma Tempest. Barbara Palvin, of course, looks stunning, but overall it looks a bit too much like a recent editorial (also with Palvin) in Vogue Australia. For some reason, it kind of doesn't mixed with the rest of the magazine.
Dree Hemingway stars this Marroquian-esque edtorial by Joachim Mueller-Ruchholtz. And although she's a blue-eyed caucasian blonde, she completely makes it work with the styling. The result is more like a series of documentary pictures you could find in National Geographic rather than a fashion editorial. Amazing!
The main editorial with Magdalena Frackowiak photographed by Aitken Jolly, shows the newly Victoria's Secret model wearing conservative clothes, in a sort of nun styling, with a special emphasis in Jolly's incredible photographic skills.
I'm saving the best for last. This very simple production by Lowe Seger has become, for sure, one of my favourites editorials ever. With no more tthan a model, clothes, and great lighting, the emotions that generates this editorials are hard to put on words. Speechless.
In case somebody wants to know: the title of this post refers to Sigrid Agren's cover. Invesitgate!
