Vogue Paris: New York Partie 2

For the February issue of Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt showcases New York City in several interesting editorials which the IWTBAA team will review over the next few weeks. Kicking things off is our eloquent and prolific contributing editor Richard James with his analysis of "New York Partie 2." Thanks so much, Rich, and keep up your brilliant work! Now I am left to wonder, did Emmanuelle Alt lend her limited edition Playboy box set to Melanie Ward for inspiration?

Vogue Paris: New York Partie 2
By Richard James

Mixing a combination of the fashion world's finest and vintage store finds, Melanie Ward transported us into an exciting and realistic vision of New York City teamed with Mario Sorrenti which made this editorial a true highlight for an issue which shows the many aspects of a city that will always be regarded as a go-to centre for young and emerging talents in the fashion and fine art world.

Anja Rubik pounding the streets of New York in Giambattista Valli on the opening page of "New York Partie 2" pretty much summarized my views of New York, a live exhibition space for up-and-coming New York-based artists living a somewhat makeshift lifestyle in downtown New York, their closets full of thrift store finds molded together in today's age of technology would no doubt equal to one of the blogging world's newest up-and-coming street style icons.

As the editorial progresses you can feel a gradual progression from day to night as Anja's outfits become less casual and more sensual making a bolder sexual statement for evening with a flash of cleavage and a hint of thigh.

More often than not throughout the story I found myself with two reference points in my head: that of the legendary Charlie's Angels actress Farrah Fawcett on the cover of Playboy Magazine in December 1978 but also reference points lead to 1980s pornography which is often a source of inspiration for the photographer Sorrenti.
