Fashion Editorial

‘Viva La Revolucion’ – Vogue Australia


Bold, Vibrant Colour; Eccentric Prints & Patterns; Incredible Location…

‘Viva La Revolucion’ is a feast for the eyes of some of the most exquisite looks from the Spring / Summer 2011 collections.

Today I brought the March issue of Vogue Australia and instantly fell in love with the feature editorial – ‘Viva La Revolucion’.  And that cover! This gorgeous cover is one of my favourite Vogue Australia covers of all time! I love the model; the pose; the use of colour; and how there are no words advertising the contents – just the bold image and ‘Vogue’ title. So strikingly beautiful!

Featuring Alina Baikova, the editorial was shot on location in Mexico by Nicole Bentley. With looks from Prada, Stella McCartney, Gucci, Giambattista Valli, Bally and Mulberry; ‘Viva La Revolucion’ is a celebration of intoxicating colour.

Be inspired for next season with bold colour blocking, mixed prints and some darling hats….

Happy Saturday! xx
