Alek Wek by Andrew Yee for HOW TO SPEND IT Magazine
Alek Wek makes an appearance in The Financial Times‘ monthly luxury magazine, How To Spend It, wearing some of the season’s most enticing prints styled by Damian Foxe. Lensed by Andrew Yee, the Sudanese model makes a striking subject in Global Gathering as she models looks from the likes of Stella McCartney, Lanvin and Etro.
Alek is dazzling in this vast array of textile-like prints. With a kind of Turkish bazaar feel, this shoot showcases some of most vibrant designer pieces of the season. Though hard pressed to choose a favorite look, I'd have to say that photos two and three are "tops." Each dress appears as a beautiful canvas that has been "splashed" with vivid yet strategically placed water colors that leap from the page. Such is the artistry of design.
