These August 2016 editorial trends range from crowd-sourced fashion models to faceless fall lookbooks that embody an ambiguous and artistic air. Some notable standouts include collaged and paper doll-themed fashion features that combine cut and paste art techniques with traditional modes of photography.
Some other creative examples include beauty editorials that spotlight whimsical rather than wearable makeup looks along with handbag photographs that are arranged like a detailed diorama sculpture.
Rejecting the natural lighting, bare makeup and minimal retouching of recent months, these August 2016 editorial features are more expressive and experimental. When they aren't pushing visual boundaries and spotlighting artful techniques, the examples center around imaginative subject matter. They also feature real models rather than more recognized industry professionals in an attempt to promote a sense of authenticity.
