To Surf Or Not To Surf
by Kate Van Raden
This is the other old favorite that I referenced this morning. I think that for several years it’s been shoots like these, and my need for other people to see them/experience their power, that has nagged at the corners of my mind; sewing the seeds of a blog. I can remember so clearly how the pages of my Vogue wafted open to reveal the rich jewel tone of this editorial. As if biting into an exquisite truffle, I forced myself to turn each image slowly, savoring the magical mood of a distant and exotic desert oasis; in awe of the flawless enchantress, worshiped by bronzed, gleaming Adonises. Before my heart came to adore fashion, it loved fairytale… Well, this spread marked a significant marriage of the two for me.
