Karl Lagerfeld shot this beautiful editorial of Baptiste Giabiconi and Anja Rubik for Vogue Nippon.

Both models are wearing Chanel couture. These shots are very well done artistically. Lagerfeld’s use of lighting perfectly highlights the clothing. These shots are eerie but elegant and very beautiful.

Implications - The fashion industry has always played around with gender roles, with androgyny serving as one of the only lasting patterns in this ever-changing industry. In today's desensitized society, consumers crave something more unabashed, causing raw, cross-dressing androgyny as seen in this spread by Karl Lagerfeld. This piece signifies a shift in what's acceptable, showing that nothing is too extreme for today's forward-moving fashionista.
