Cruel Summer

I arrived back in Berlin just over a week ago and have been trying to make the most of the patchy unpredictable Spring weather. I set aside today to get some serious blogging done and what do ya know? Beautiful, crystal clear blue-skied day! So, if there appears to be a sense of urgency about today's series of posts, please excuse me but my body is in desperate need of some Vitamin D! Vogue Italia brings the point home with an editorial and cover story entitled "Broken English" for its Summer Style issue. British top model Karen Elson and current it girl Edie Campbell star in the Steven Meisel lensed editorial as two house bound bathing suit beauties. Campbell and Elson don the season's chicest beachside attire as they mooch around the kitchen, bathtub, and living rooms of what appears to be a deserted English countryside estate. The dream team of stylist Karl Templer, Pat McGrath, and Guido Palau on make-up and hair, lend this editorial an authenticity and an intimacy that is captured oh so perfectly by Meisel. Whilst the pairing of the iconic Elson and new kid on the block Campbell is clearly a nod to Meisel's uncanny ability to predict modelling's newest and most enduring muses.
