^ totally.

What a horrible, horrible issue. Kei and Giampaolo's stories seem to have been accepted in an effort to balance something out, probably just the name of the magazine, but the result is so incoherent and disastrous, they're really not doing any help when stories like Keeping the faith and Passion for pastels pretty much speak for the direction of the entire magazine.. Keeping the faith in particular, is quite honestly, the worst editorial I have seen in years, you want to be careful when trying to be humorous about dated aesthetics such as the 80s Versace one.. the result really just suggests longing (not surprising considering the people involved) and a genuine interest to bring back such a vulgar and ridiculous conception of beauty.

I wonder if Vogue Nippon/Japan really wants ADR or if it's just a Condé Nast strategy, to employ her in one of their editions and continue to pave her way up, cause what she does and is about is just so discordant with anything they were going for only 3 years ago, and with the Japanese approach to fashion in general. If they didn't ask for it, how awful to get a parasite like that thrown into your publication, talk about a fashion nightmare.


Thanks for all the posts, visualoptimism!.

Sometimes I'm wondering what direction ADR is taking Vogue Japan too. Actually I'm not quite familiar with the pre-ADR era of Vogue Nippon either. But truly I can see a strong personal style effect on Vogue Japan lately, especially since Anna starts to style editorials and covers.

Another interesting issue is how ADR's aesthetic changes so dramatically. I still remember her styling in Vogue Italia in 90s and early 2000s, it's very different from the extravagant ad over-the-top style she has nowadays.

I always hate to disagree, but analyzing only "Keeping in Faith" and not the whole issue which we all seem to agree is horrible and non cohesive. I don't know, there's something i like about the concept (if there is one) in that editorial, maybe it's the stupid/dyed hair that's matching with the clothes or the models who are really working it well, great cast for it btw. Specifically what bothers me about that the ED is the styling a bit, i feel like some are ADR's usual dresses (that she wears) but with a tons of cheap accessories and the other looks i just don't understand it except the mix of the jungle t.shirt with the adidas pant on Simon Nessman which i like a lot. For instance i feel like i've seen the dress in the 6th shot in post #65 a ton of times wore by ADR. Anyway i don't know much of the japanese conception of fashion and about their use of accessories, so i can't judge... But the whole editorial doesn't seem so horrible to me.
