Eugenia Volodina and the colour black for Harper’s Bazaar Espana

October 30, 2012

Trippy new surrealism is possible thanks to Prada’s psychedellic prints, making for one fine November cover featuring Eugenia Volodina

The shot: Harper’s Bazaar Espana cover for the November 2012 issue

The model: Model Eugenia Volodina

The garb: Prada’s fall collection belted print suit, black stockings and B&W wayfarer shoes

The photographer: TBD

The final word: What’s not to like about a mag cover that could easily double as a vinyl album cover?

Eugenia Volodina looks great in this Prada getup even if no one I know in (or out of) the fashion scene would ever wear that pant hem length and flare unless they were contemplating doing a little dance. It’s a show outfit, alright, but what I really love about this cover (in addition to the repetitions upon repetitions) is how smartly the suit is styled to keep it from looking blah or just plain crazy. A cover is where you get a full-on fashion hit and this one’s a spiked fruit punch.

See how the colour black is perfectly used to prevent the suit from looking like an endless glob: the belt buckle is the anchor to the frame while the turtleneck and black stockings, shoe tips and hair keep the look contained within those parameters.

We may think the print is a touch much but really, why wouldn’t you rock that blazer with a pair of dark wash denim and strappy black sandals? Or how about the pants with a sheer cream blouse and pointy stilettos? Prints are easier to pull off than you think.

And just you wait- celebs are lining up to strut this one at their next film premiere. Pics to come, guaranteed.

    Love this cover! A spiked fruit punch, reminds me of the delish bowl I shared (yes, I shared) at BarChef recently. mmmm, a perfectly fashionable flashback! Happy Halloween!

      Happy Halloween, Sue! Thanks for your comment, I love this cover, too, and I LOVE Bar Chef! Haven’t been in ages, must go back right now and order a fancy schmanzy bevvy. Sharing just means you can justify order more under the guise of sampling ;).

    Awesome cover ! I would most definitely rock these pieces seperately. I admire women who can pull off print on print gracefully.

      I do too, and I love mixing prints.
      P.S. I want to feature Borough Vintage but because of the site’s photo viewing settings I can’t copy the pieces I want to feature! So frustrating; I wish web developers would communicate that it hurts retailers to make images non-rip-able. Us social media influencers really want to promote what we like!
      It’s much better when there’s a closeup view (for details) AND a jpg available for copy ;).
