This fashion editorial for V Magazine subtly reminds us of our childhood by incorporating childish props. Mickey Mouse metal lunch boxes, star-spangled sun hats and Bambi-printed sweaters are typically things a 7-year-old girl would wear, but fashion model Dalianah Arekion sports these things in V’s Fall 2013 issue. Style by Carine Roitfeld, each of Dalianah’s outfits include at least one juvenile accessory of the past.
Shot by Sebastian Faena, the photos centralize Dalianah’s stunning features and physique. But if you look closely, a cartoon-printed metal lunch box makes an appearance in almost all the photos. Because all photos are black-and-white in tone, it’s hard to pick out these props. But the infusion of these childish products in a chic fashion shoot suits well the theme of the past and perhaps even nostalgia.
