Our Gone Goth photo shoot explores the dark side of fashion this season.
It’s not only the provocative The Great Gatsby film by Baz Luhrmann or the fact that the roaring 20s are in fashion right now that prompted this shoot. The consensus in intellectual circles is that the turmoil of the new millennium has sparked a new Lost Generation – a name originally applied to young people living in the 20s during World War I. This is the setting of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby that featured wanton drinking, dancing and reckless lifestyles on the North Shore of Long Island, NY in 1925.
Our recent Shore Thing editorial spread might have been beach-themed, but it was anything but sweet and sunny. Instead, this moody, thoughtful shoot takes a more sensual, interesting approach to highlighting seasonal trends.
You saw our gorgeous Meet Me Halfway shoot last week, now take a look behind the scenes video to see how it all came together. To set the mood of our vacation in the sun shoot, Honfleur was chosen for the location. The old world feel of the city is the perfect backdrop to the brightly colored clothes and accessories that capture our flirtatious, adventuresome Mediterranean-influenced theme.
A haunting slow jazz tune provides the ambience to the behind-the-scenes video of our “Ain’t She Sweet” Spring 2012 editorial.
