Sitting pretty in a park usually evokes happy and sweet images, but this Vogue China October 2013 editorial goes for an entirely different approach to getting in touch with mother nature.
Titled 'Checkmate,' it's no surprise that this photo shoot is filled with plaid prints. Model Sasha Luss wears different variations of the popular pattern styled by Nicoletta Santoro. The most intriguing part of this photo spread is the expression and demeanour of Santoro; although she's surrounded by lush greenery and new life blooming around her, she gives off an icy stare that is made even fiercer with her bleach blonde locks and dark eyeliner.
An enigmatic editorial filled with opposing elements, this Vogue China October 2013 spread is definitely one not to be missed. Check out all of the images above.
