Drawing attention away from Abbey Lee

For some time model Abbey Lee Kershaw had something of a cult following. Then she joined her boyfriend’s band and near-on disappeared from sight. While you’ll catch a glimpse of her in Mad Max 4, in the interim Abbey Lee devotees have only the odd photo shoot and ad campaign from which to get their fix. A fact that ranks the issue 133 of Numéro amongst their must-purchase items.

Gracing some pages of the issue in a pictorial by Greg Kadel, Abbey Lee Kershaw‘s Numéro shoot is best described as fashion as art. It’s not that it’s a photo shoot devoid of fashion, as some of the more artistically interpreted photo shoots are, but rather that its dominated by it. Abbey Lee is captured in black and white. Often she’s haphazardly cut into the frame, as if we’re privy to a collage. Where there is colour it’s overlaid with the air of a translucent print. All of it adds up to a fashion shoot where you notice anything but. Abbey Lee may be front and centre, but your focus is drawn elsewhere.

To see a preview of the photo shoot draw your focus to the thumbnails above and browse through the gallery. To see the full thing, pick up the May 2012 issue of Numéro magazine at newsstands.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
