Geishas may originally be a Japanese tradition, but the W March 2013 editorial proves that it can translate itself into many different cultures.
Featuring a multitude of different interpretations of the classic Geisha look, the W March 2013 was captured by photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott with styling done by Edward Enninful. Models Ondria Hardin, Saskia de Brauw, Xiao Wen Ju and Yumi Lambert each don their own Geisha character; a classic Geisha, one with barely any clothing on with books replacing the obi (an important part of a Geisha's dress which looks sort of like a backpack) and a handful of other artistic variations.
The W March 2013 photo shoot does an amazing job at paying homage to the Geisha while exploring new facets of the heritage.
