It’s not everyday that we get to see a true homage for a true geek in a true fashion magazine! Also, it’s not everyday that we get to see Birkenstock tongs or Hawaianas flip-flops in an haute fashion spread!
Erin Wasson’s editorial in Vogue Paris April 2013 named Les Lignes de Nazca – The lines from Nazca, represent just what the titles is suggesting – a way of blending fashion and Nazca history in a most harmonious, linear, tasteful manner!
With a little help from Mario Testino’s artistic lenses and Anastasia Barbieri’s styling talents.
In who’s skin has Erin Wasson sneaked in this time? Maria Reiche – an incredibly passionate German mathematician & eminent scientific who studied the Nazca inscriptions with dedication and superhuman ambition. The editorial, however, doesn’t show the results of Maria Reiche’s sustained investigations: the Nazca drawings, which are part of the Unesco World Heritage Patrimony since 1994, which she dusted off, studied and interpreted brilliantly during her lifelong research in the area. Instead, we’re freely granted access at a sanded, deeply yellow view with a very geek-chic looking Erin Wasson and a thoroughly eclectic wardrobe.
