A colorful backdrop and 50s styling sets the stage for ‘Lost Weekend’ by Miles Aldridge, a kitschy spread featured in the September 2011 issue of Wallpaper magazine and edited by fashion editor Beth Fenton.

Leading fashion photographer Miles Aldridge captures lovely IMG model Shirley Mallmann in this bright and fun photo series, which also features a cameo of the photographer himself. Wearing pieces from designers such as Marc Jacobs, Bottega Veneta, Tom Ford and Hermes, Mallmann poses against a vibrant backdrop that includes hot pink lounge chairs and candy-colored walls. These set pieces were actually part of the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia, where the shoot was held.

The video here offers a look into ‘Lost Weekend’ by Miles Aldridge and features the designer discussing his inspiration for the shoot.
