Vogue Italia’s Black Allure Issue Tells a Retro Tale

October 5, 2015

It’s official, this Spring /Summer 2011 is all about retro looks, exotic prints, and fine color! Shown above and below are models featured in the February issue of Vogue Italia’s “Black Allure” issue. Model names include Ajak Deng, Arlenis Sosa Peña, Chanel Iman, Georgie Baddiel, Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, Kinee Diouf, Lais Ribeiro, Melodie Monrose, Mia Aminata Niaria, Rose Cordero and Sessilee Lopez.

The spread, photographed by Emma Summerton, further illustrates the finger wave trend that we recently observed on the runways and various photo shoots (here).

When viewing the photos, it’s amazing how the model’s style and pose tell a unique story that dates back to the 1920’s, and highlights the current turban trend, as well as African style fashion for the modern day woman.
