*editor's note 7/12/2011 | We didn't include the name or any information about the stylist involved in this shoot, Edward Enninful, who rightfully deserves much credit. Thanks to COLOURlover LIZAR for setting us straight. The original article is still below.
Last year, Vogue Italy asked Steve Meisel, known for his work with both U.S. and Italian Vogue and his collaboration with Madonna in "sex," to do something crazy. I don't know if that was the actual art direction but from the results of the shoot it very well could have been. The idiosyncrasies of Meisel created a complete sensory overload: overlapping colors and patterns scattered randomly across the frame pulled together by models sprawled across wearing similar or complimentary patterns to those underneath them, giving the appearance that they too, are a part of the aberrant fashion quilt. And within these seas of color there are a great number of palette possibilities.
