Modern Ethnic Touch by Joel Lim highlights fashion's unrivaled ability to make old look up-to-the-minute. The playful editorial features fun-loving model Saara Sihvonen decked out in tribal patterns and indigenous-inspired accessories, composed in such a way that that creates a very mid-19th century, and consequently an extremely fresh selection of styles.

The broad spectrum of the flirty looks included in these spreads showcases neutral and earthy tones alongside candy-colored youthful hues. The bubbly blonde model is the picture of a timeless ideal beauty exuding a lighthearted spirit in the way she grooves, struts and shimmies across the pages of the May 2011 issue of Singles Korea. Between its aesthetic influences and the attitude of the wearer, Modern Ethnic Touch captures the most universal reasons to celebrate fashion.
