The clothes in the editorial ‘Cheap Thrills’ in Harper’s Bazaar are anything but frugal fashions. Stylist Katie Mossman dresses Canadian supermodel Jessica Stam in luxurious designs by Diane von Furstenberg, Alexander Wang and Yves Saint Laurent. Mossman also mixes in pieces from accessible labels like French Connection UK and Diesel.

Photographed by Miguel Reveriego, these ‘Cheap Thrills’ in Harper’s Bazaar’s November 2009 issue are all black and white.

Implications - Despite a strong movement towards outlandish designs in the name of individuality, there has been a strong resurgence of fashion mired in the traditional. Companies can benefit by advertising a 'back to the basics' campaign that favors the standard and classic to the new and radical.
