Inspiration: Steven Klein’s shoot for US Vogue

I recently saw this lovely shoot of Raquel Zimmermann by Steven Klein for US Vogue styled by Camilla Nickerson. Loving the bold floral prints for Fall by the likes of  Givenchy, Sportmax and Mary Katrantzou. It is very refreshing to see something so exciting in US Vogue which I have grown bored of over the years and now just look to the elysian pages of Italian Vogue for inspiration (this is my favourite Italian Vogue shoot ever). This shoot was also a surprise because Steven Klein style is usually more gritty and sexy preferring monochromatic and metallic looking finishes, I love seeing a photographer working out of his comfort zone and trying something so completely different and colourful.

 

Bold Florals for Fall 2011

So this Fall, we should mostly be wearing bold florals. Maybe bold patterns are not everyones cup of tea but if styled to suit your usual garb, like mixed in with something simple the look can still be effective and just as powerful. I am going to try and add this influence to some textiles patterns for next Spring’s G&J collection. Once this collection starts showing some form we will post some pics here. For now, enjoy the photographs…
