The May 2009 issue of Vogue Italia invites us on a sensual journey in the editorial 'Moroccan Holiday' by Steven Meisel.
Meisel captured Russian supermodel Sasha Pivovarova on this fashionable voyage with vivid photography and inviting art direction.
The oriental theme is a regular occurrence in fashion, as you can see in the related trends below. However, Steven Meisel manages to bring his own style and twist, transcending it into delicious art.
Implications - What makes this Moroccan Holiday editorial so captivating and enticing is the beautifully artful way in which it crosses cultural boarders in a thematic way that tells a story. The fashions depicted are inspired by these other cultures, and are a driving force behind the art.
