A chillingly eerie standout in the September 2012 issue, the W Magazine Spellbound Editorial is mystically chic. With a tagline that reads “Fall’s bewitching fashion is stuff of your darkest desires,” the pictorial to follow does the foreboding warning justice. The decadent imagery was executed by the genius Steven Meisel, who poetically photographed the avant-garde fashion story. Striking visuals of eerie models playing about in moonlit woodlands haunt in fall’s most dynamic garment creations.
Styled by Edward Enninful, the spread features pieces by Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Diane von Furstenberg and Giorgio Armani. Despite its theatrics, the editorial does not fall short in its showcase of fall’s standout pieces. The forward-thinking manner of this piece is sublime, as it seamlessly marries exemplary art direction with fashion.
