The Robert Trachtenberg ‘Dont You Know Who I Am’ editorial for Tatler’s August 2011 issue is one for the stars! The photo series takes viewers both into the future and back in time by converging up coming fall collections with the gazes of famed fashion figures such as Twiggy, Tina Turner, Madonna and Marilyn Monroe.
The spots featured are interesting to look through, traveling from the city streets of enticing cities like London and New York, to record stores. The shoot showcases the designs of high fashion houses from Ralph Lauren to Burberry, Versace and many others in this cheeky, ironic spread.
Implications - Fashion editorials place new collections into a context for consumers looking to stretch stylistic boundaries in different seasons. Editorials that are both aesthetically alluring and showcase upcoming fashions are the most appealing to these consumers, who perceive these photographs and the designs they feature as works of art.
