Editorials

I'm completely incompetent when it comes to trolling sites like The Fashion Spot and where ever else one might go to look for scans of fashion editorials from around the world. I honestly have no idea how those threads work and can't for the life of me figure out how to search for something specific among the sites. That little snag results in very few editorials reposted here on my blog, which is fine with me since I rarely see ones that resonate with me anyway. But when I saw this one posted on Lungfuls (a wonderful blog I discovered from Anja), I was instantly smitten. I love all the hats! And the woolly layers, and the sort of Edwardian feel to the looks and the fact that the girls are all in comfy boots rather than crazy high heels. I'm also really loving the collaging on the photos which is giving me all sorts of ideas for my own photos.

P.S. I'm not sure what magazine these were original published in... something Italian? If you know, pass it along and I'll credit them. Thanks!

They do have a lovely Edwardian feel - slightly David Copperfield -ish. I like the use of paper to enhance the images. In particular the black tie, with a pleated fan sort of affect.

Wowwwww, amazing photos! Especially love the boots and collar in the first one!

These are beautiful! The last picture with the Comme coat = perfection.

Heart these photos - so pretty! I'm right with you when it comes to sites like The Fashion Spot. I can't figure it out, either! Have a lovely Monday!

Very nice. I'm always happy to see something a little bit different.

Haha, that's weird...my old scanner doesn't work with my new pc, so I was piling all the best fashion editorials published in italian magazines waiting for a new scanner or a borrowed one.
Then during the weekend I finally scanned some of them, this one from the October issue of Marie Claire Italy too, and now I found it here!! I'm so glad you like it! Oh, and let me know if you would like the real paper thing (it's a very long ed, about 19/20 pictures) cause I kept the pages and I can send them to you if you like :-)

these are very charming. they remind me of a large photo album my grandma just gave me that dates back to 1905. it's full of random little paper dolls and other cutouts of butterflies, tigers, and more random things. in the back there are tons of old christmas and valentines day cards too. they're so itty bitty and adorable. great inspiration!
