Masculin Féminin

Juxtaposing men and women in fashion editorials has been a tried and true technique used for years, it creates a dynamic that usually provides an overly sexual atmosphere. What we love about this spread from the newest issue of Elle Sweden is that you almost can't tell who the male or female is. Their complimentary outfits and matching coloring makes you wonder if your looking at siblings or lovers. It definitely has a weird vibe but with that it creates interest and conversation.

Cruel Summer

Can Erin Wasson ever look bad? We're loving her bold browed and minimal make up look form the pages of Vogue Netherlands. The slightly disheveled styling and Wasson's attitude combined create an atmosphere we wish we were a part of. Shoots like this definitely highlight Wasson at her best.

Coming back to gloomy LA after our desert adventure has got us craving warm weather! The saturated colors and throwback jelly shoes from this Elle UK editorial has us yearning for a beach day stat. Can't wait 'til the clouds part and we can jump into the nearest body of water. Until then we'll just look at these pictures and count down the days.
