Flight mode

July 28, 2009

Aviation seems to be quite a popular inspiration among the magazine editorials this season, thanks to all the leather, jumpers and of course Hermés.


The latest, “7e Ciel” from French Numéro ph by Luciana Val and Franco Musso stars Myf Shepherd in a studio shoot with smoky effects and miniature old planes. 





Peter Lindberg’s take seems more natural, it is inspired by a real person (American aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart) and Heidi Mount’s moody looks suits his equally moody photos to bits. And the varied settings with the old air planes and out door location make it seem even more real. This ed is from BAZAAR US July 09′.



Lovely, no?


On another note, Ralph Lauren’s Fall 05′ ads were also aviation themed. Just to revive a bit of memory.

      Peter Lindberg LOVES Stam, he used to. Heidi Mount has that same sort of looks that corporates well into his photos that’s why he uses her I guess. I def see the similarity.

    Flight is definitely a great inspiration! Love that ralph lauren ad! And about Jourdan Dunn being pregnant, I couldn’t believe it at first. she’s too young!

    Considering the situation all over the world, 19 is fairly average to get pregnant. Which is off-topic.

    Heidi Mount carried the mood for the photos so well. Nicely done!

    I remember that Bazaar did an other aviation editorial with a big Harpers Bazaar marked on the plane, i just cant find it, it was in color. something like 2007.
