City Slickers

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Fall 2006 will always be a special season for me because it’s when I really started getting serious about my interest in fashion. The following photos are from an editorial that captured my imagination the first time I saw it way back then, and have remained in the back of my creative mind in the years since. I’d been looking for it for a while (quite a difficult task, considering I had forgotten what it was called…), and once I finally found it, I knew I had to share it with you right away!

Here it is– City Slickers by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, from the July 2006 issue of W [Images courtesy of this wonderful website]:

Looking back at it, I still really enjoy the aesthetic message of this editorial (especially the smooth glossiness of the myriad-colored latex stockings)– there’s something unique about it that still speaks to my style (or even to what I would like my style to be in the future), as well as appealing to my nostalgia.
