Editorial of the week: Modern Day In the Mood for Love

Oh boy do I love a great fashion editorial. I came across this editorial on a blog, rolala loves (who seems to share my love for fashion editorials), and was instantly wooed, especially because it pays an elegant tribute to one of the most aesthetically beautiful movies I’ve seen: In the Mood for Love.

Whether or not you’re familiar with director Wong Kar Wai’s work, you’ll love this atmospheric editorial.  Models Li Xiaoling and Zhao Lei stylishly channel the roles played by Maggie Cheung and Tong Leung, making longing and elegant restraint look not only fashionable but also effortless. Here they are with the supporting cast of designers Tom Ford, Armani, Jason Wu, Rodarte and more.

There is also a gorgeous short fashion film  that accompanies this editorial.  If you’d like to get the full In the Mood for Love experience, I’d recommend you play this song from it’s soundtrack while you view these photos:

Unspoken Desire // Vs. Magazine SS 2014 // Photography: Laspata Decaro // Art Direction: Jakob F.S.

Models: Li Xiaoxing & Zhao Lei // Styling: Vibe Dabelsteen // Makeup: Brigitte Reiss Andersen // Hair: Renato Campora
I may be biased because Zhao Lei is one of my favorite models but, this editorial is so beautiful, don’t you agree?

After seeing this, I also took a look at the site from which the images come from, Vs Magazine.  I especially love their tagline of ” a curated and emotional view on fashion and culture.” A curated and emotional view is what I strive for on my own blog, so that stood out to me immediately.

Hope that put you In the Mood for Love,
