A box of crayons exploded on this Mario Sorrenti September 2011 W Magazine editorial, which features extravagant street art and even more extravagant fashion. Shooting supermodels Sasha Pivovarova and Freja Beha Erichsen, the spread doesn't jump into Fall lightly, showcasing that color doesn't end in August.
The intense graffiti backdrops are essentially an extension of the clothing and patchwork featured in the photos, which include a Chloe poncho and some fierce Isabel Marant fringed knee-high boots rocked by Freja. More of an eye-melting work of art than a fashion shoot, this editorial is appropriately captioned "Wear it Loud and Proud!"
Implications - Fashion's seasons each feature colors, cuts and materials that make regular and repeated appearances. Designers, photographers and editorials that push these boundaries and defy convention, extend the seasons with groundbreaking shoots that show consumers new directions of style.
