Been thinking a lot about texture lately (clearly). These images from Craig McDean's editorial in the February Vogue Italia are especially appealing in that regard. A thousand textures, surfaces, and patterns do make the shots magnificently excessive. What's most impressive is that it's pulled off in a very spare black and white palette.
It's so easy to create excessive richness with color, and let a minimal palette lend itself to structural minimalism. This is infinitely much more interesting, no?
