Brit Wit

February 6th, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (12)

British Vogue always manages to feature some of our favorite girls in decidedly different ways. This month the mag transforms ethereal gypsy Abbey Lee Kershaw into a 60s siren, gives Zuzanna Bijoch the minimalist treatment and provides Karlie Kloss with entry into a world of pure kitsch. The dramatic, colorful and just slightly kooky stories, make for an especially strong issue and the perfect compliment to that candy colored Lana Del Rey cover.

The retro vibe of Abbey Lee Kershaw‘s dreamy story by by Alasdair McLellan is enhanced by the fact that it was shot in Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor’s former home: Francesca Burns‘ styling really shines here.

Zuzanna Bijoch‘s severe shots by David Sims feature standout pieces from BalenciagaComme des Garcons and Miu Miu selected by none other than Joe McKenna.

The Mario Testino helmed meditation on excess is filled with patterns, prints and other forms of opulent ornamentation chosen by Lucinda Chambers and worn by Karlie Kloss.

    Wow, three only girl eds by the NEXT girls. They basically make most of the content in this issue, no? Kudos!!

    also, on a similar thread, the main fashion stories in this issue are all shot by art partner photographers…

    Lovelovelovelovelove Abbey! Shes stunning, and this is such a good editorial!

    Karlie looks so good, LOVE Testino+Chambers. Their images are so fun. Wish I could say the same for Abbey’s images. I’m just not into Alasdairs shots of women. Love his men’s images, but he makes his women all look the same, bored. His last few shoots for Brit Vogue all look the same, shame because Francesca’s styling is fantastic.

  7. Kasper says:

    Hey glunge, the fashion editor of the magazine is also repped by art partner right??!!

  8. Josh says:

    Karlie Kloss is amazing, she knows how to deliver in zuzanna and abbey lee.

  9. TpC says:

    the last 2 pages look very authentic-retro 60s -from the print standpoint – nice job

  10. glunge says:

    kasper – yes, the fashion director lucinda chambers (and joe mckenna) are with art partner…

    i don’t know who the new creative director is after robin derrick left. obviously someone with enough pull to get mario sorrenti to shoot for them.
