Glamorous 30s Inspired Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong Editorial
In the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong, Patrycja Gardygajlo expresses old Hollywood glamour in a shimmering new way. The editorial for Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong called “Glamorous Life!!” and shot by Dirk Messner, depicts an elegant scene indeed. Rich environment hues and sumptuous garment textures make for a dramatic fashion story. Stylist Jennifer Hahn selects labels like Balmain, Versace, Giambattista Valli, Prada, and Burberry to express the lux 1930s inspired aesthetic. Gardygajlo’s ruby coif harkens to the beauty of vintage vixens like Rita Hayworth and Betty Page. Thick bangs along with polished waves compliment slick evening gowns and lavish furs. “Glamorous Life” transpires in a velvety setting- quite reflective of the fashion in the narrative. Cinematic lighting is echoed metallic accents around the apartment. The fashion of the editorial incorporated a motif of gold and black. The only subtle injection of color comes in a piece from the ever-popular Prada s/s line with a burgundy and emerald green leotard. “Glamorous Life!!” is a attractively modern take on retro splendor.
