Amazons rise, and rise again

There was an unmistakable spike in 2009, a spike in editorials of a particular theme. It was a culmination of fashion and film: the film was Where The Wild Things Are and the fashion was a trend in all things fierce and Warrior like. Since then we’ve had a long enough break from the theme to approach it with fresh eyes; and so has photographer Julia Kiecksee. Her shoot Rise Of The Amazons brings the warrior motifs away from their heavily embellished straps and spikes of 2009 and into a softer, more minimal interpretation for 2011. It’s really a combination of the hair, makeup, poses and props that puts the primal spin on it while the clothing, styled by Ann-Kathrin Bruns, stays freshly modern.
