Future Classics

May 6th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (33)

Steven Meisel creates classic iconography with his latest shoot for Vogue Italia; dreamy black and whites, retro swimwear chosen by Karl Templer and the most beautiful newcomers. Kirsi Pyrhonen, Hind Sahli, Ylonka Verheul, Daria Strokous, Julia Nobis, and Caroline Brasch Nielsen star in a spectacular story that is reminiscent of vintage images from 60s editions of Vogue.

  2. Chungkit says:

    Wow. I was hoping the inside story of VI would be amazing and it is… Image 5 of Daria lurching forward with the black bag is insane!

    Kirsi. Goosebumps. The new Supermodel!

    She owned this.

    Don’t like the way she is siting.

  6. glunge says:

    i love kirsi. and i look forward to some brilliant pictures in her career. i don’t even mind her funny walk.
    sometimes she reminds me of meghan douglas and annette o’toole.

    And Meghan Douglas looks a bit like a sharper Carolyn Murphy.

  8. kayleaf says:

    I’m soooo happy for Hind! This is really big! I hope she gets more edits, campaigns – exposure in general, because she is stunning. I love the energy

  9. gise says:

    first time in a long time i’m actually inspired by meisel. bravo!

  10. All about Models says:

    I love this touch,what the editorial has. You can see the models are fresh and have a cute look. And it’s with the black/white classical.

  11. Lissy says:

    This ed is pureee awesome!

  12. JoltOfDavid says:

    Spectacular indeed. Karl Templer delivers.

  13. poo says:

    Love the top-knot headscarf combination. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before. Does anyone know if it’s a 60s look?

  14. Mango says:

    I like this ed but I just have to say, Bones sticking out everywhere, Kirsi would look even much better with more weight!

  15. Allison says:

    I could tell Kirsi was an interesting face, but I didn’t think she’d come across quite as stunning as she does in editorial. Her eyes really are refreshing amongst all these wideset, doe-eyed girls we’ve seen lately.

  16. W says:

    I love Krisi in the editorial
    she stands out.


  17. IS THIS IT? models review says:

    How much I love this! Ylonka, Caroline, Julia, and… well, even if not here (and I’m not a fan), fot the record there is one pic with Julija Step too….
    And, yes, last but not least (absolutely not!) – KIRSI! Perfect for this b/w editorial, big chance to show her huge potential (she absolutely deserved), and she did. AMAZING

  19. Christopher Y says:

    I really love the angles… and the CASTING is so fresh, like i’ve never seen anything like this before… the images exuberate energy with a touch of humor even though the pics are all in black & white… STUNNING!!! 😉

  20. Betty says:

    To Mango and Marc:

    Kirsi is a brand new girl, a lanky thin teenager. That is how she looks.

    We don’t have the Julija pics yet. We didn’t forget.


  21. John Anderson says:

    I like the shots except it seems knees and elbows are everywhere, not enough flesh/ wieght. Great lighting, great faces

  22. JW says:

    Very Avedone-like!

  23. mimi says:

    That is excellent! Steven Meisel is the king !!! It is soooo timeless and modern. Unbelievable!

  24. CATHERINE O' C says:

    love love

  25. nat says:

    absolutely fabolous!

  26. Sofie D says:

    boring. meisel is soooo overrated.

  27. Nigel S. says:

    Stunning. This dynamic angle that Meisel is playing with is beyond dramatic and quite the unexpected dose of fresh.
    The space-like 60’s garb a la Templer and the accompanying aura is so captivating.

    I love that Meisel made it a point to negate the visual of a full body in each frame..creating those candid, playful moments that encapsulates the era.

    Btw; Kirsi is where it’s at!

  28. diane says:

    the styling and poses are lovely, but something about the lighting takes away from the editorial.

  29. diane says:

    yeah… i’d like to see these in color.

  30. tana01 says:

  31. tana01 says:

  32. Cody says:

    Now this is a time when fashion was simply fashion. Thank you vogue italia & Steven Meisel. Our professor Steven Stipleman says hi!

    I am just so happy for Hind. The picture is just stunning
