Fashion Faves – Han Hye Jin

A trio of shots of model Han Hye Jin as photographed high up in the Andes for Vogue Korea by Peruvian-born photographer Alexander Neumann; the full set came from here.

It’s a lovely, colourful, fun shoot as evidenced by this particular shot featuring Han Hye Jin leaping in the air. Or possibly riding an invisible mule. Difficult to say for certain. What can be said, however, is that it doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are, or what you look like, the first rule of fashion still applies: socks and sandals is an executable offence.

The clothing style sported by Han Hye Jin for this shot borrows heavily from Spanish influence so the setting of Peru makes perfect sense. I love the modern take on the matador-style here contrasting with the traditional Peruvian llama-walkers. Llama-walking is a traditional Peruvian thing, right? I mean, what else are you supposed to do with them?

The final shot I’ve selected to show off demonstrates lovely use of natural light and shade by the photographer and some wonderful attention to detail bringing together the colour of the large doors with the accent colour of Han Hye Jin’s skirt. It also shows that those seat covers with all the knobbly bits that are supposed to massage you/relax you/make you look like you’re ninety years old and suffering from piles: yeah, Peruvian door manufacturers got there first. Fashion and invention history folks! Fashion and invention history.
