With Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria currently invading the world of contemporary art, the Middle East is presenting an exciting field for creative fashion photography and art. After featuring exotic Egyptian beauty in the Cairo editorial, we bring you yet another photoshoot that W Magazine recently shot in the Middle East: Istanbul.
However, instead of using local talent, this time professional model Lara Stone was captured by the incredible photography duo of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
The beautiful ancient streets and buildings of Istanbul provide a striking background to the hottest new fashion creations (all in black color) from the likes of Chanel, Prada, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney, Salvatore Ferragamo, Narciso Rodriguez, Calvin Klein and Giorgio Armani.
The editorial was styled by fashion guru Alex White.
