With its jovial celebration of diversity and culture, Vogue Japan’s ‘Festival of Life’ editorial bursts with a riot of color, print and high-end designs. Dutch model Bette Franke poses against a range of vibrant urban backdrops from the heart of Bahia, Brazil. Fittingly, the styling sees a well-placed jumble of assorted themes, featuring pieces by international names like Mary Katrantzou, Dolce and Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Givenchy and Ralph Lauren Collection. Spring/Summer 2013’s dominant ‘60s stripe trend is key on bold dresses and bags, while tribal and floral patterns also feature – each shot offers a contemporary twist on traditional aesthetics. Many of the looks are finished off with statement accessories, including pearl-encrusted cuffs, heavy jeweled necklaces and a veiled headpiece of white roses.
