patterns on fabric, patterns on skin

One of my all-time favourite editorials, always so inspiring to see the clash of vibrancy work with patterns, textures, print & ink; all tied together with strong hair and makeup. There's not much more I can say, the pictures and drop-dead stunning faces do the talking.
