And here is the Second Fashion Editorial series. There is a stark contrast between the two, one being highly ornamented, the other clean, sharp and tailored.
But I do feel that the is a few strong links between the men's tailoring and the lavish women's costume, and for me that is the notion of tradition and beautiful detail.
Both these sets allude to beautiful lavish style and visual effect, that also holds strong traditions both present and cultural.
I feel that showing these two shoots together is so strong, as it highlights the modernity of the traditional costume in todays fashion, while also subtly suggesting that men too can dress with great impact and playfulness.
I'm so so excited to share this on my blog, mainly because a great friend of mine was the one to share this with me.
A few weeks ago it was my birthday, and I was so lucky to receive some parcels in the mail from friends. One being from Bonn in Germany.
It contained the Zeit Magazin from a German Newspapers, and was a special edition on German fashion. What is interesting about it, is that they drew parallels between Men's and Women's fashion, but also cultural, traditional and modern dress.
There were two major fashion shoots, one on the Modes of German style in 1811 Womenswear, and the other being 200 years later on Modern German Menswear, 2011.
This is the Editorial Photoshoot for the Womenswear fashions of 1811.
