Iris Strubegger by Alexi Lubomirski for Vogue Germany September 2011
Love the haute couture glamour to this editorial. There is luxury and drama to every shot with the black and white palette standing out amid the time-worn setting. I love the sort of melted luxury presented with the dusty crackled rooms and the elaborately wrought furniture as if this was once a place of great pride and opulence only to be forgotten in the passing of time. Moreover, the dripping candles coupled with the stark color palette of the pieces give a haunted feel to this editorial. And what lovely pieces were chosen! Each intricate and full of texture with all the extravagance of haute couture. This is exactly what I expect of a September issue. I want to be this excited about the upcoming season as I am reminded of the brilliance of the last.
