Fashion Editorial

Brighton Rock

My weekend inspiration came in the form of the Vogue US September Editorial, featuring Natalia Vodianova and actor Sam Riley. Captured by Mert & Marcus and styled by Grace Coddington, the editorial highlights a mod inspired wardrobe with pieces by Versace, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta and more.

This editorial also has holds extra meaning for me as I positively adore Brighton! I lived in Brighton for four months last year and have wonderful memories of spending time on the pier, relaxing on the pebbly beach and walking along the promenade. Coincidentally last weekend, I also watched ‘Brighton Rock’ (an adaption of Graham Greene’s novel) which stars Sam Riley set in the seaside town in 1964.

More about Mod Dressing
‘Mod is about chrome polish, about presenting the sharpest, shiniest you (whatever misdemeanours you’ve secretly been committing)
. Mod clothes typically have a deceiving decorous, grown-up air. Skirts fall near the knee; arms are covered; sack silhouettes conceal waistline curves.’ – Vogue US

Love this editorial! Love Brighton! Love mod squad chic!
