Les Lignes de Nazca: Erin Wasson for Vogue Paris

Thursday, 25 April 2013

Magazine: Vogue Paris April 2013
Editorial: Les Lignes de Nazca
Model: Erin Wasson
Photographer: Mario Testino
Styling: Anastasia Barbieri
Location: Peru

Vogue Paris chose Peru as their latest inspiration and dedicated the whole April issue to this fabulous country, full of mystery and color. In an editorial shot by Mario Testino, Erin Wasson portrays the famous German mathematician Maria Reiche, who dedicated her life to the preservation of the Nazca lines - a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca desert in southern Peru. The lines stretch on an arid plateau and depict hundreds of individual figures ranging from simple lines to stylized versions of animals, trees and even flowers. The lines were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.

While the styling of this editorial doesn't necessarily speak high fashion or resonate with the chic essence of Vogue Paris, I think that choosing to dedicate an entire issue to such an exotic country was a very bold choice of the editorial team. They wondered away from their comfort zone and managed to integrate many interesting stories related to Peru's history in their fashionable storylines. You can judge the result for yourselves:

The World of Mad Men Through a 21st Century Lens

Wednesday, 10 April 2013

As the popular series Mad Men is getting ready for the start of its 6th season, the designers at Shutterstock thought out some very creative illustrations around the idea "what things would look like if Don Draper and company were heading to work in 2013." They took the habits of our well-known 1960s characters and translated them into today's trends - the result is hilarious and I'm sure all the Mad men fans out there will love it! Just take a moment and think about it: what would it be like if Peggy wouldn't have to worry about making mistakes on her typewriter anymore or if Betty chose yoga to de-stress instead of smoking?
