When it comes to fashion photography, black and white can sometimes be boring and a medley of mixed colors too busy. Bridging the gap between the two opposites are monochromatic shots like those featured in the Vogue China 'For Colour' editorial.

Photographed by Lincoln Pilcher for the magazine's September 2011 issue, the Vogue China 'For Colour' spread features model Hyoni Kang (of Elite and Ford) posing in single-shaded outfits that echo the colors of her backgrounds. For instance, Kang is featured wearing a yellow trench, blouse and pant, sitting atop a yellow cab in one shot and in a blue cropped jacket, oversized cuffed trouser and shoes, walking down a blue-shaded alley way.

Filled with sophisticated pieces, from classic coats to a pair of super-stylish, wide-leg red trousers, the Vogue China 'For Colour' spread was styled by Morgan Pilcher, with hair by Jordan M. of Bumble and Bumble and makeup by Jodie Boland.
