I have been dying to post this editorial from Vogue Nippon for a few days now, but I have been unable to do so up until now. It features some instantly recognisable pieces from the McQueen SS10 collection along with others by Miu Miu and Versace.
Doing a shoot with the McQueen pieces under water is genius- it just works so well and harks back to the original SS10 show, 'Plato's Atlantis'. And with the model styled to look like some sea-dwelling creature (check out the seaweed hair!), it brings to mind all those wonderful watery stories about mermaids, sirens, water nymphs and underwater cities...and I feel like the clothes really add to the illusion. Enjoy.
