Vogue Japan's May 2012 issue is set to feature the 'Melancholy Was The Mood' spread. Photographed by artists Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi, the haute couture photo shoot showcases the lovely Natasha Poly in emasculated ensembles. With overly tousled loose curls and a pair of tinted shades, Duella and Henzi have pulled off a male-oriented look with ease.
The Melancholy Was The Mood series showcases the many ways in which females may sport masculine outfits come spring. The dark pieces chosen include a crisp linear blazer, a sharp bow tie and a classic oxford shirt, all of which can be easily incorporated into everyday apparel choices. Set amid an unnamed ashen backdrop, the juxtaposition of black on white emphasizes the brazen nature of the Melancholy Was The Mood Vogue 2012 May series.
