Model Laura Kampman is not the typical widow in the W Korea November 2012 editorial. In place of a simple and modest black ensemble, she shows off her loss in a much more dramatic way. From stunning mesh fascinators to shimmering sequinned dresses and purple dyed hair, a reader would easily assume that her character is part of the fashion industry in some form or another.
The W Korea November 2012 editorial was shot by photographer Philip Riches in a 16th century Veneto villa. The Netherlander beauty was styled by fashion editor Woo Lee, who focused on modernizing typical funeral fashion in a glamorous and slightly grunge way. Posing alongside male model Spiros, a narrative is introduced in which Kampman rediscovers her inner passions. Hairstylist Hester Wernert and makeup artist Miriam Langellotti finished the looks.
