LA STYLE

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

 

I have been looking at issues of Vibe Magazine on Google Books, some of their fashion stories were brilliant back in the 90s. This one, LA Style,  from the August 1994 issue is probably my favourite. It was shot by Mary Ellen Mark who was responsible for the amazing documentary about runaway street kids Streetwise.

I remember doing a project on the Sonia and Robert Delauney in school and thinking it was some of the most exciting stuff we got to study but if I had seen these illustrations then I probably would have been even more captivated! The designs and colours look like a precursor to the postmodernism movement.
