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:
Without further ado:

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,
“You notice things if you pay attention.”- from the movie, In the Mood for Love
