Tommy Ton for Vogue Nippon October 2010

Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil shot an editorial titled A Renaissance of Style for the October 2010 issue of Vogue Nippon. This is my favorite blogger/magazine collaboration to date; not only do the photos retain Tommy's signature quirks (focusing on accessories, street locations and models walking instead of posing still), he also pushed his style to another creative level appropriate for a major print publication.

The third-to-last photo might be an homage to Anna Dello Russo (well-deserved as she was the one who got Tommy this gig); if memory serves me well, he's photographed her in a similar pose before. It's also kind of endearing that he would have the models look so distant and aloof, as if he still sees himself as a fashion outsider having trouble approaching the beautiful people who fascinate him. Photo number 6 reminds me of stylist Catherine Baba whom Tommy often photographs in humongous coats (great styling). The ideas behind this shoot are so clever and its atmosphere so sophisticated that I truly hope Tommy Ton will continue to collaborate with Vogue in the future.

    • Unfortunately the clothes credits are really hard to read in that photo plus it's in Japanese. The only two I can make out are Sermoneta (gloves) and Emilio Cavallini.
