Have a Provocative Weekend...

These gorgeous photos, based on Ingmar Bergman's film "Persona," are so sexy and mysterious...they seem to be evoking the idea of a private weekend tryst...a secret romance?
Have a provocative weekend my dears!!

I love this editorial! I swear, some of my favourite fashion spreads have been from Vogue Italia.
I hope you're having a fantastic weekend too!

It always baffles me that Meisel's work for Vogue Italia is completely different from what he does for US Vogue... Anyways, these are really beautiful photographs. Thanks for posting!

P.S. I love the sort of things you post about, would you be interested in exchanging links?

I love the idea, the setting and the styling but It just seems so wierd with those thin looking models..

karen -- Vogue Italia never ceases to amaze me!! I wish the US version would have the nerve to be as creative sometimes...

gerry-- thanks you so much for your kind comments! Of course we can link.

mothersvea-- I didnt think of that, but, you know, I do often feel that way about, wouldn't she be lovelier, or wouldn't the editorial seem more relatable if the models were a bit more...realistic?
