the jazz age.

the jazz age.

in terms of editorial themes, the wartime forties, complete with jazz singers, is a theme that pops up again and again. women were prim and proper (even in the face of tough times), and the music was intense and emotional. the photography of william gottlieb was surely an inspiration for peter lindbergh’s “fashion…and all that jazz” in september’s harpers bazaar. chanel iman and arlensis sosa visit new york classics like the cotton club, sylvia’s and the lenox lounge wearing classic wrap camel coats from max mara, suiting by gianfranco ferre, furs and dresses from lanvin (a very forties-centric collection), and beaded gowns from armani and chanel.

the styling by brana wolf is spot on, as is the hair and makeup by yannick d’l and tom pecheaux respectively, while chanel and arlenis are truly perfect for this…their images leap off the page and really are the highlight of this issue.
