I’ve not read anything to confirm or deny this train of thought, but this Vogue Turkey editorial really brings to mind Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night – and not just because I have a one track mind. I’m getting total Dick Diver (Worst Name in Fiction) and Rosemary vibes from this shoot anyway, even if no-one else is. Favourite Fitzgerald book, favourite line in a Fitzgerald book:
“I want to give a really bad party. I mean it. I want to give a party where there’s a brawl and seductions and people going home with their feelings hurt and women passed out in the cabinet de toilette.”
Considering that the jazz era has been one of this season’s biggest trends, there’s been a disappointing lack of 1920 and 30s editorials for me to get excited about. Is everyone just trying to be subtle? I guess this shoot by Phil Poynter (featuring Ranya Mordanova And Janice Seinen Alida) goes some way towards making amends.
