Wander Lust - Ava Smith

With the changing of the seasons from Winter to Spring, IMA's attention turns toward warmer pastures and what better way to get inspired then by Dansk Magazine's editorial set in Lima, Peru, starring the beautiful Ava Smith. Smith provides the perfect blank canvas as she takes on the role of an eccentric artist while exploring the teeming city environs while decked out in selected pieces from the Spring/Summer 2014 collections of Prada,  Proenza Scouler, Chanel, and others styled by Almudena Guerra. Smith blends seamlessly into the pulsating city landscape as she wanders the back streets, lingering in doorways, seeking shelter from the heat in tranquil courtyards, and venturing into a local barber shop. Neumann captures the serene beauty of Smith as he observes the Wilhelmina-repped American on her journey of discovery. Smith elevates the editorial from mere fashion story to one that encompasses art, travel, lifestyle, and fantasy as she takes on the dual roles of model as muse and artist. With streaks of paint coarsing through her upswept hair, Smith is quite simply beguiling as she stares down the camera's lens with her cobalt blue eyes with a look of pure wanderlust.
