    That collection.. still looking as relevant and absurdly brilliant as it did then. :heart:

    Angela looks lovely too, I agree.. what a strong look she had. still does, but not in the same density anymore.

    great story ...
    easy, but amazing ...

    that painting in the back with the blue dressed woman ... the abat-jour which works as a crown ...
    making a great story with a "relevant and absurdly brilliant" CDG collection and simple elements of decoration ...

    Bravo Isabelle !
    Bravo old Purple !

    bravo to mark borthwick too! he is such a great photog....very underrated,imo....to me between he and wolfgang,such simplicity yet they produced some of strongest images over the years.

    i agree with you about angela....back in the days when i actually paid closer attention to the newest models,she was the girl that i think kind of paved the way for so many of these new girls...very unique but also had that girl-next-door look as well. she was extremely versatile.

    I can´t see the images... :( Are there more shots to the editorial than what you can find in Mark Borthwick`s book & the Purple Anthology book (those I have)? I did image searches on google, but that brought only 1 new image...
