Miles Aldridge’s Technicolor Lost Weekend
by Alice Byrne
We feel that Wallpaper Magazine always has great content, and as the September issue focuses on fashion, of course it is no surprise that the fashion editorials inside are great. Miles Aldridge captures the best of the fall collections, which are modeled by Shirley Mallmann. These luxurious, glamor-filled images are styled by Beth Fenton, including designs from the likes of Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Bottega Veneta.
The editorial is shot under the narrative of a technicolor lost weekend, at West Virginia’s Greenbrier Resort. We really like that alongside the fantastic photographs of Shirley, there are also painted portraits, including a beautiful image of Grace Kelly. This just adds to the sense of opulence, glamor and grandeur that the setting, composition and the model portray. We really love the limited edition cover shot by Miles Aldridge, and we suggest that if you can get a copy of this, you do so. The colors are bold, bright and the spectacular location just adds to the sense of drama created from the narrative and styling of the whole shoot. Miles Aldridge always delivers top-notch fashion photography, and this shoot is no exception.
