I really like this editorial. I would've loved it if it weren't for that picture entitled Flower Power. Why didn't they stick to the 40's?

i agree about the flower power image, it doesn't really fit in.
we also have a thread on the photographers if you'd like to see more of their work http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums...ht=sofia+mauro

a bit weird to call it "heroin chic", isn't it?

Thank you for posting! I liked the "pinup" and "detective" best, and I agree about "flower power" being out of place. I noticed the "e" in the title too and it got me curious to see what they thought was a hero. It was clever!

By the way, Amy Adams is such a good actress - I hope she becomes more famous. She was the shy nurse with braces in Catch Me if You Can, and the pregnant wife in Junebug.

Kandy Land - NYTimes Magazine article on Helga's Folly + fashion editorial
source: nytimes.com

Quote:
January 1, 2006
Kandy Land

Photographs by PERRY OGDEN
Fashion editor: ANNE CHRISTENSEN


It is an eccentricity of fashion that just as winter begins to nip at your sling-back heels, and cashmere starts to seem less like a luxury and more like a basic human need, scanty bathing suits, filmy sundresses and the strappiest of sandals suddenly appear in the stores like an act of demented defiance. But fashion knows, often before we do, exactly when we long to be somewhere else, and the sartorial manifestation of this longing is an annual collection known as resort. At Helga's Folly in Sri Lanka, overlooking the ancient city of Kandy, resort clothes make sense both in reality and as concept. Not just because at this time of year the weather is generally fine. But rather because the seat of the de Silva family, a 1930's Art Deco chalet that Helga de Silva Blow Perera not so long ago transformed into a colorful 40-room guest house, is in its own way an act of demented defiance. Monkeys swing on the balconies, fairies guard the pool and at lunchtime the sandwiches are served the old-fashioned way with the crusts removed.


The de Silva heritage, which extends to art, antiques, politics (George and Agnes de Silva helped secure Sri Lankan independence in 1948), architecture (Esme de Silva, a member of the Bauhaus, designed the chalet; Minette de Silva, a girlfriend of Le Corbusier, was among Asia's first female architects) and general intrigue, stands in for décor. And Helga's notorious daughter-in-law, the fashion instigator and editor Isabella Blow, wearer of virtually unwearable Alexander McQueen frocks and Philip Treacy headdresses, does not hold a candle to our host. But you see where she's coming from. Here, among the pine forests, the waterfalls, the "Mogambo" jungles, the tea plantations and the drawing rooms, a feather-print gown, a floppy hat and a pair of shoes conjured from a pair of scarves hardly seem eccentric but entirely appropriate.
