[Going Places]…Editorial by Mark Segal

The layering of the looks in this editorial stun me…

I really like excess sometimes. This editorial by Mark Segal is just that – far too much fabric, looks, textures, and styles. But like I said, at times, I like the sensory overload of these types of editorials – especially when they’re done right. I think this editorial is a great example because the colors in each look correspond well AND I think each look is very different and isn’t so much about just piling clothes on top of a model. The editorial is called “Going Places” and I think it’s a good twist on the Nomadic style of clothing  – yes it may be high fashion, but people of nomadic lifestyles do wear layers, so I think the inspiration comes through quite clearly. I know some may call this another example of “homeless chic” which I DO NOT like (that “aesthetic” is distasteful and disrespectful to those less fortunate) but I think the difference between that and this editorial is that you can see the influences of nomadic Peoples in this editorial (think Norwegian nomadic peoples).

Anyway, there are pieces by Missoni, Chanel, John Galliano, Etro, Lanvin, and many other designers I love in these photos. It’s almost like an “I spy” of fashion!
