Vogue Italia (November 2008): Cottage By the Sea

This is one of my favorite editorials--shot by Steven Meisel and featuring icy blondes Katrin Thormann and Toni Garnn!

The styling is so utterly chic: chunky cable-knit sweaters, simple white cotton sundresses, thick black headbands, fur vests, and black maillots--a timeless resort capsule collection.

The shoot was inspired by Ingman Bergman's masterpiece "Persona," which was made in 1966. The film is described as a "modernist horror film." I've YouTubed some clips and it looks very avant-garde. I should look for this film next time I'm at Kim's Music & Video.


  1. this is indeed a beautiful editorial

  2. I remember this editorial... I loved it! So stark and classic and absolutely perfect. I think I actually have it filed somewhere.
