Free spirited

Seeing as we are on the way into August, and it's JUST starting to get uncomfortably warm around these parts, I'm not yet counting the days to fall. However, coming across this Vogue editorial shot by Hans Feurer and Helmut Newton a whopping 26 years ago (July 1983 to be exact) does make me look forward to chilly temps, just a little. The story explored volume, layers, and a free spirit contrasted with polished, more "conservative" elements. The choice of designers was stellar ranging from Comme des Garçons and Yohji Yamamoto, to one the stars of the 80s, Azzedine Alaïa. It's crazy to think this was from a quarter of a century ago and it seems more relevant than ever to me.
