Dynamically mixing nostalgia and high fashion, this October 2012 W Magazine editorial is titled 'A Modest Proposal.'

Playing with vintage ideals, this spread was captured by photographer Michael Thompson. He succeeds in creating portraiture that showcases spanning landscapes in the background of this high-fashion editorial. Styled by Edward Enninful, each model sports pieces from the Fall 2012 collections that seem the attire of distinguished family of La Belle Époque.

The editorial boasts a diverse modelling cast that creates the perfect conditions for showcasing vintage-inspired fashion for a range of ages. Each frame is a monochromatic display of chic classic wear with a feel of nostalgia for a more simple time. 'A Modest Proposal' features pieces by the design houses of Louis Vuitton, J. Mendel and Lanvin.
