The traditional geisha getup gets a modern urban makeover in the ELLE Vietnam May 2013 editorial. Although many of the Japanese elements are present, they have been tweaked for the contemporary woman. In place of stiff and bulky layers, the outfits either show more skin or are a lot more flowy. Instead of classic colors and patterns, the fabrics offer a prints that appear at once contemporary and traditional.
The ELLE Vietnam May 2013 editorial was expertly styled by Anna Katsanis. Pulling pieces from the spring collections of such designers as Prada, Dries van Noten, Dior, Thakoon and more, the photoshoot shows just how heavily influenced by Japanese culture people are this year. It stars model Tian Yi.
