PHOTOGRAPHER SIMON PROCTER TAKES US TO THE FRONT ROW OF FASHION. IN THIS LATEST SERIES OF CATWALK PORTRAITS, HE CATCHES THE STUNNING SPECTACLE OF THE FALL 2007 RUNWAY SHOWS WHILE DESIGNERS SHARE THEIR SARTORIAL INSPIRATIONS Photography Simon Procter
"It's bold, high-end luxury and exaggerated elegance. We added the intricate detailing and couture-like cuts from the east to put the new-look geisha glamour girl in the front line of fashion. With matching shoes and bags, this is the season for the total look and total escape." John Galliano for Dior
"The Regency period was a great source of inspiration, as well as Brassai's iconic photos of '30s Paris. You can see Madame Bijou, Kiki de Montparnasse, the dark paved streets, and smoky cafés in the slinky dresses and coats that wrap around the girls like rose petals." John Galliano
"We drew on a lot of our past collections—our first collection, which was very minimal, the Russian collection, and the Scottish collection. There was inspiration from the paintings and color palette of Vermeer." Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton
I cant wait until this magazine comes to my city!
For some reason I really love Stam and (especially) Hilary Rhoda's shots.
I love the black and white photos.
Only I really wish they had done more with doutzens second shot.
Other than that it looks great!
