The Schon Magazine 'Konichiwa Cowboy' editorial will bring to mind the movie 'Shanghai Noon,' which starred Jackie Chan as a Chinese Man who travels to the Wild West. Just as he did, model Sissi Hou adopts the life of a cowboy without forgetting her own Asian heritage. She combines East and West elements in a way that will appeal to many.
Bohemian with an edge, the Schon Magazine 'Konichiwa Cowboy' editorial was styled by Kisha C Jones. The brunette beauty is clad in colorful kimonos, fringed jackets and loose pants from such labels as Donna Karan, Missoni and Valentino. Shot by photographer Michael Flores with art direction by Christopher Sollinger, the looks were perfected by makeup artist Yacine Diallo and hair stylist Nicolas Eldin.
