Vogue Japan + My Fascination With Venice

Pack your bags! Let's go to Venice! I am truly smitten with this editorial! Love the dresses, outfits, and sparkling jewelry. Everything is so gorgeous!?! What are you guys doing this weekend? Right now, I'm looking at the 2014 Pre-Fall runway collections. Ralph Lauren knocked it out the park! I see why people were praising his collection. Loved it. Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend :) Have fun!

I think I'm ready to pack my bags and run off to Venice after viewing this vibrantly beautiful editorial. Did they photoshop out all the pigeons there though?

Hi Kim, you're right, this editorial is gorgeous! I've been to Venice once and it's a beautiful city but while I was riding on the gondola, I noticed the water was really dirty (definitely looked better in pictures). Have a wonderful weekend!

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Hi Kim! Beautiful editorial piece, makes me want to hop a plane for sure! Venice is on my list (long list) of the many places I want to visit ...

Joie Fatale said...

Japanese Fashion magazines will always be my favorite! I love Japan Vogue, Japan Nylon, and Kera the best!
Also Fruits, which is their street fashion magazine!

Christine Ly said...

YES! to this post. I'm excited because it's getting to that time of year where nautical styles are everywhere. It's one of those things that will always be in style. The use of red in these shoots are very attractive but I really love the third picture with the fancy white and blue dress and lovely parasol.

Happy New Year, Kim! I hope that 2014 is a wonderful year for you. I'm just catching up now on your posts. I've missed so many while I've been on holiday! This is such a bright and cheerful editorial and brings back such happy memories of a holiday to Venice with my parents and best friend when I was just twelve years old. I'd love to return some time. Enjoy the weekend.

You are definitely right. This collection is beautiful. Great post.

You are definitely right. This collection is beautiful. Great post.


Tina Bradley said...

What a chic collection of style! You are right. RL nailed this one! Italy is definitely on my "someday, must visit" list. I've heard it's truly a fashionable place--no doubt it is! Big hugs, T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Dawn GT said...

I love when you do post like this. Simply amazing!



Coco said...

Dear Kim, if I can be honest I'm not crazy about this editorial... I think it doesn't convey Venice decadent charm, maybe my heart and not my reason is talking because I love so much Venice and these pictures don't make it justice. Have you watched LV campaign with Arizona Muse?. If not, check it out and let me know what you think! Happy weekend sweets!!

Coco said...

I also think it's blatantly photoshopped

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

I'm SO with you. I've been obsessed with Venice for as long as I can remember.

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

gosh, what an incredible shoot! how fun it must have been for the editors to put this all together too :) Venice is the best! i remember being in that square when it flooded, the waters rise so often there that workers seem to appear out of nowhere and set up walking planks so everyone can still get around. it's awesome! ♥

Cee said...

What a stunning editorial! Venice is on my must-visit list and has been for what seems like forever, but since I haven't made it there yet, it's always nice to be able to dream via gorgeous editorials - Vogue Japan knocks it out of the park every time!

Emdem said...

Pack our bags, Kim? :0 Let's go! :D Oh, that second dress from the top... *sighs
Hope you had a great weekend too! :))


Harlynn said...

Such a lovely photoshoot!! I love the girls outfit on the dock (2nd row).

Very beautiful photos!
I went to Venice twice when I was little.


Shea Coleman said...


Thanks to you posting these photos I want to go to Venice. The closet I've been to Venice was Venice beach does that count LOL.

Loved the editorial and the photos are perfect!!

Annie Sand said...

Wow, these pics looks absolutely amazing! I would gladly pack my bags and go with you to Venice, it's so cold here in Finland at the moment. :) When do we leave? Haha.

ftashion said...

Amazing spread! The photos kind of feature the best of Venice and it's really beautiful! Love the vibrancy of the colours here, makes the photos look like they weren't taken at our times!

Vanessa Basanta said...

love thiis post!!

Irene said...

Beautiful editorial! My favorite look is the left one on the second pic, the navy shorts with the sailor striped tshirt. It's so simple yet it looks so luxurious!
But I have to say that I'm surprised that Vogue Japan puts occidental-looking models in the editorial and not Japanese models. I always thought that fashion magazines chose models resembling the people of the country.

Have a lovely day, Kim! xo

I love the dresses especially the white one with the blue lace design. Sooo pretty.

jessica philip said...

It is costly but well worth it. It is not just a way to get to downtown Venice. It is a site in itself. Romantic gondolas side by side with barges of produce and gasoline! The buildings along the canal are magnificent and many of them are on the "to do list" but are completely different when seen from the water. Get a 24 or 36 hr pass and ride all over the different routes to get a insider view of Venice
