New Age


For their April 2015 cover story, the team at Vogue Japan brings a fresh vision of the best of the Spring 2015 collections. This isn’t your typical flowers-and-sunshine look at spring, though— there’s nary a sweet floral or tropical color to be seen. Vogue Japan’s view of spring fashion is all about youthful rebellion: slick leather, high contrast black and white, and fetish fashion details like corset lacing, thigh high boots, chains, and biker caps. It’s spring fashion for a new generation of cool girls… girls for whom spring is a chance to hop on their motorbikes rather than stroll through the daisies.

It’s fitting, then, that casting director Piergiorgio Del Moro has commissioned one very cool gang of 19 very cool girls. Ranging from stars like Daria Strokous, Liu Wen, and Jamie Bochert to new faces including Alexandra Elizabeth and Aya Jones, these are girls with more than enough confidence to pull off Giovanna Battaglia’s sharply chic looks. As captured by the extremely talented photographer duo Luigi & Iango, the cast commands attention with effortless tough girl allure. This is a gang any girl would want to join.
