Vacation Delay

I'm sad to say that I'll be away for a couple of weeks - I'm leaving to catch a flight in literally ten minutes - and I wont be able to update during my trip. However, I'll try to find a computer in whatever hotel I am staying at to try and update the site!

It comes at a really bad time considering the August issue of VP is about to be released, but don't worry I will be back to posting as soon as I am home! For now I'll leave you with a screencap from Daria's Summer 2008 H&M spot ... hopefully I'll look half as good as this at the beach!

Waiting for August

It was not too long ago that we heard news of the Vogue Paris August 2008 issue, but it already feels like a lifetime has passed! I'm not sure about you reading this, but I know that I am anxiously awaiting the issue, dedicated to Daria and shot solely by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

I've been reading up on Inez and Vinoodh's work aesthetic as well as flipping through some of my old magazines that included collaborations between Daria and the photographers, which has gotten me even more excited.

Looking at the all of the images, I've noticed that Daria has made some of her more impressive editorials with the duo. There is always a study of sexuality and gender roles in their images and they have captured both ends of the spectrum when it comes to themes and dynamics. For a more visual explanation, I've included a gallery of images shot by Inez and Vinoodh all feauturing Daria. Hopefully, this will hold you off until August.
