full quick change artist editorial by david sims is available here.

quintessence #2 – 5 years later

ok, title is different, but spirit is similar, seeing the img preview.


you can see other 3 preview images in her img portfolio. link is on the right sidebar.
title is ‘quick change artist’ and these first pics remind me both of quintessence (vogue paris august 04) and another editorial for harper’s bazaar (sept 04) both by david sims.
so, thanks to god someone different from i&V and imitators (h&m photographer)!!! btw i made a mistake when i wrote at tfs that i didn’t like daria working with sims! i love it instead! i screwed up sims with steven klein. i only like one editorial by him featuring daria, that one with natalia v. too (sept 04 – us vogue).

so hopefully we’ll get hq scans soon. i might consider even buying this issue. so i can also read the models’ conversation!!!
(and of course that military jacket is the same as the balmain campaign… does balmain have any other clothes?)

more relief

a couple of more pics from the forum shooting. looks like it’s going to be a great campaign.

okay, i know, i still have to finish writing my pirelli review (btw, i just noticed an unxpected oscillation between beard and beards!!). i’ll do it when i’m back home. meanwhile let’s enjoy the backstage pics of the forthcoming froum tufi duek campaign by david sims that were posted at tfs by francyitaly (click there).

at first sight hair and make-up remind me of the cavalli ss07 show (i’ll add a link later). i really appreciate the mix of feminine style and slight masculine attitude. i hope that remains in the final results too. to be honest, despite loving some – really not more than some – of the pirelli shots, this is the kind of work i prefer: fashion high photography (more than high fashion photography…). there’s a refined and sober elegance in daria’s posing here that i really feel a darialogistic relief. in particular, i can’t wait to see the final result of the first picture on the left. i don’t know how the whole outfit is and you know i’m not a fashion expert, but i heart a 40’s (???) aura that fascinates me.
