One of the things I am most excited about experiencing in Singapore is the fashion. Singapore is such a melting pot of different Asian cultures, while also being home to many American and European ex-pats. One of my first exposures to the Singapore fashion scene has been checking out the magazine covers. And while Singapore no longer has its own Vogue title (see some of its history HERE), I did stumble upon the Vogue China Collections Spring/Summer 2013 magazine.
I am just going to say it: this magazine cover is really visually stunning. Photographer Emma Summerton shot model Daria Strokous in this red on red cover, which perfectly captures the cover theme (and only phrase I can read!) “Pieces to Treasure.” I like the visual drama of this photograph—it feels like art and I love when art and fashion are interchangeable!
The choice of red does more than make a visual statement. The color is very significant in Chinese culture and symbolizes happiness and good fortune. It also is representative of summer, making it the perfect choice for this seasonal special.
What do you think of the red on red drama of the Vogue China Collections Spring/Summer 2013 magazine cover?
