The influence of Los Angeles on fashion is no secret, and the Vogue Paris Subcultural Tour of LA shows us just why the City of Angels is so iconic. The 64 photographs featured in this incredible editorial showcase the many faces of the city, attributable to major subcultural differences that can be found within the shortest distances.
The various looks featured in the monumental magazine spread range from the suburban LA housewife persona to Natasha Poly's 70s folk-rock character and Lara Stone's dominiatrix-style woman. The men used as accessories range from beach bum surfer boys to fitness freaks, rockstars and sensitive-artist types. Using both monochromatic and colored shots, the editorial is truly epic and revolutionary.
Implications - Art is an integral part of any city's culture, and art that is inspired by regional characteristics excites consumers who are familiar with the images they are viewing.
